Bostons starting PG isnt going to go 2/15 again. Boston controlled most of the game too.

ORL still has a long way to go. I like how Bass compliments Howard, but they need to figure out their PG position and quick. I dont think Nelson/Gilbert is going to work.
Yep.

I have a feeling they're gonna move Jameer.

^agree. Arenas is still a starter at this point in his career. Nelson for a backup C is possible IMHO.

I would move Jameer before Arenas, Gilbert is still the more dynamic player. Trade Nelson to shore up the bigs

Most logical fans take Nelson over Arenas. Nelson basically does everything better and more efficiently, shoots better from all areas of the floor, passes better, makes better decisions, plays better defence. But Arenas has the pst belief with him that people still think hes a gamechanger, which Nelson has never been, but Arenas is no longer anyway. Some think if Arenas starts and plays big minutes he'll return to what he once was, which I really doubt at this point as well.

But again, I dont think having both is going to work over the rest of the season, and Arenas was only moveable for one of the worst contracts in the NBA, so it looks like Nelson will be the one to go.

If they trade Arenas, then they are in the same position they were in before the big trade: without a legit scoring threat in the backcourt. Nelson is playing well for Orlando, but they are very thin on bigs. If Nelson could be moved for say a Brendan Haywood, you've got to consider it.

Just to be clear I don't have to be high(wish I was right now) to give my opinion.

Nelson is really good @ what he does, however if Arenas has anything left he is a next level player with the confidence to match.
