Darko Should Start.

From ESPN Insider John Hollinger Chat. (My own thoughts are the opposite on Jameer -- I think he is a wonderful game changer off the bench but I'm glad they are both getting minutes.)

ESPN.com: SPORTSNATION - Chat-11061(Insider): "John, given how they have played since the trade, do you think Arroyo and Darko should be starting? I think in the long term Carlos might be a better fit than Jameer and would really like to see how they play together with Dwight...

SportsNation John Hollinger: I think Arroyo is fine where he is -- Nelson is a much better player and Arroyo is better suited as an energzier type off the pine. But Darko? I'm amazed he isn't playing more, and I know I'm not the only one. You can't make a trade like that and then have the coach giving his minutes to Tony Battie. This would be true no matter how bad or good Darko was playing, because it's imperative that the Magic evaluate what they have in him before extension time. "

    HAHA... Good one WRD... Yes, we all agree that Darko should start. But don't forget who the coach is. And Battie and Augmon are still on the active roster. I'm beginning to think that the only reason Darko see's the playing time he see's is because Otis and everyone else expects Darko to play. If it were totally up to Hill, Darko would be down on the bench keeping Deener company.

    I don't know how old everyone on here is, but we've probably all worked at one time or another, for a supervisor or boss just like BSHill.. The hardest workers and most dedicated, promising employees always get passed up for promotions or raises, in favor of the useless pieces of shit who come in late, do as little as possible, and couldn't care less what happens while they're there, and are the ones who we all end up working for and taking orders from. It's total bullshit, and it will continue to be that way as long as that mental midget is the coach.
