Magic's Future Depends on Progress of Dwight, Darko

That is the exact title of a lengthy article by John Denton posted on ESPN.com. You will find the link below:

There is little mention of Hill (Brian) but there is plenty of Otis Smith's comments saying just about all the right things, including some comments on the other Hill (Grant). The article is worth reading.

    Another foolish comment by Hill:

    "I don't really like to look at guys as starters or backups,'' Hill said before Thursday's game. "For us to be an improved team, Tony has to have the same kind of season as last year, whether it's as a starter or in reserve."

    Somebody has to teach him a few lessons about the importance of a long-term outlook. Battie is such an exemplary professional who is openly saying that he does not mind playing back-up for either Dwight or Darko. So where is the problem that Hill is insinuating? If Battie does not start he is not gonna perform, as he did last season? The answer is an emphatic NO. The other day a lot of time and energy was wasted (with Hill involved) to send a videotape to the league on a no call that resulted in Darko's injury. What a waste of time and effort. What is to be gained from such whining?

    Sorry I haven't been able to post much these last several days but my laptop crashed on me in Vegas... am at an internet cafe now. At least I still have my desktop back home.

    Anyway, great to see the Magic continue on their preseason roll after their dominant victory against Memphis. Seven players in double figures... good FG and FT shooting... and good assist to turnover ratio.

    I don't think I've ever seen a team have only 5 assists in a whole game like Memphis had.

    Will post more after I get back home Wednesday night.

    Sorry for the incident, Mike. We will be looking forward to your excellent post-game analysis when the regular season rolls in.
