Stevenson comes to his senses too late

John Denton

It sounds like he's more blue about no longer being a starter on the Magic than the money but at least he knows who is to blame.
But deep down, he knows most of the blame falls on his shoulders. And it's going to take time to heal the hits he's taken to his pocketbook and pride.

"I didn't want to leave (the Magic) because I felt I worked my way up there, going from the gutter to being a starter," Stevenson said. "For it to all happen like this, it's really frustrating."

    This should be a lesson for all who think they are irreplaceable.

    It is kind of sad in a way because Stevenson did have a halfway decent season and was a good guy who always hustled. But we all pointed out his deficiencies and agreed he overvalued himself... and in the end it really cost him.

    You are right, Mike. I liked Stevenson as a warrior and a good soldier. I still think his worth is in the range of 2.5 - 3 million per year, that Magic had correctly offered him, and was surprised that he did not get it from some other teams.

    I blame alot of that on the people that Stevenson had around him. Sure his agent had alot to do with it, and it was Stevensons' decision to make. But also, when most of your friends and family are building you up bigger than life, it can make you think your worth more than you really are
