And the News Gets Worse!

Magic trade hard working veteran Bogans for nonathletic, slow, short Tyronn Lue. Lue was last here in Orlando as a starter in 2003-04 leading the Magic to a memorable 20-62 record by appearing in 76 games (69 as a starter.)

Nelson's injury has now moved from tradegy to farce. And Otis Smith has now moved from doing a good job to a horrible one in a mere 72 hours. What a disaster.

MAGIC: ORLANDO ACQUIRES TYRONN LUE FROM MILWAUKEE

I googled our site, and here is what I had to say about Lue September 19, 2006:

(Let me take a moment to comment on Tyronn Lue. I blame him personally for the Magic falling apart 3 years ago. He sucks. Slow, un-athletic and no discernable playmaking skills absolutely killed the Magic and tore the heart out of T-Mac. Every time I see Lue play I think of how awful a GM John Gabriel was. And yes, he looks like he belongs in the WNBA.)
Fuck You Otis.

    Disagree completely. This is a decent trade, both for value (swapping two second-tier players) and need (we don't need Bogans but desperately need a PG).

    We could have gained more by giving up more, but that wouldn't have necessarily helped.

    I disagree with some of Otis's move, but here he made a reasonable move under difficult circumstances.

    I agree with "Anonymous" and made a new blog post going into more details about my opinion.
