Ok without Francis the Orlando Magic are doomed for at least 3 years. Even if they are able to sign a decent free agent or 2 plus a 2006 lotto pick I don't see them being a playoff team for sometime. DHoward is a great bball player, but the rest of the team are unknowns. Hill is always hurt, Nelson is a shoot first point guard, Darko is unknown, Hedo sucks!!! The first order of business - who is the starting point guard (Carlos, Dooling or Nelson)? Should they start Darko since they have given up? With Fran leave Spain next year and join the Magic? If he does what happens to Darko? I doubt we get the 2007 pick because the magic will be drafting in the top 3 spots. But all bets are off in 2008 and the Magic will again probably be drafting in the top 3 - 5 spots. It looks like JD may have pulled the wool over Orlando's eyes again.. Good job Joe, but maybe you stop screwing over the Magic since I do get all their games for free (on TV)..
