    Alright! Good to see Darko geting some game action somewhere and doing well.

    I guess the next best thing compared to hanging with the Magic in Orlando for the summer, would have been practicing with and playing for the national team.

    Talking about Darko, I sincerely think he should be thrown in the starting lineup forcing him to commit to the task and grow into it. It is a chance that is worthwhile to take.

    I think that'd be a great move. It'd show that the Magic have confidence in him. Darko obviously has the talent, he just needs the confidence, and I think the organization could make a big move in helping his confidence grow by putting him in the starting rotation.

    They will never win a championship with Battie starting.

    I think all of us will be getting on BHill's case if he starts Battie over Darko. With a full month of training camp, this should prepare Darko for starting and he should know all the plays a lot better than he did when he first came to the Magic, when he was brought along slowly. No excuse for bringing him along slowly now.

    I think Battie will do a nice job off the bench, plus be a good role model for the younger players.

    I agree with you Matt. Darko needs to be in the starting lineup. I think it will will keep his mind on the game and keep him more involved with what the team is doing. Sitting on the bench can give a player to much time to think of other things. I know these are professionals and suppose to be ready when their number is called. But, everybodys mind tends to wander when your not actively involved in whatever is going on.

    Yes, it's great to see Darko staying active over the summer and getting some quality playing time and experience, this can only be a good thing, unless he is injured..
