McGrady done for rest of year

Out with knee tendinitis. That should wrap up worst record and the best chance at the top pick and Emeka Okafor.

I think that Dwight Howard (not Okafor) will go first. Howard is 6' 11" and still growing. Okafor is only 6' 8" (I believe) and has injury concerns. I don't necesarilly agree with taking Howard over Okafor, but I think that it will happen. I guess a lot probably could depend on how Howard does tonight, and how Okafor performs Saturday and Monday (hopefully he plays Monday).

McGrady's injury pretty much killed me in my fantasy playoffs. I just fell short on points and assists, which led to my demise.

they don't need Okafor though imo, I would try and draft a good point guard, since Tyron Lue is a bench player imo.

This is good news for me, cuz I've got both Howard and Gooden on my fantasy team, thus more minutes and hopefully more consistent production from Gooden. Yeah!

I would love to see okafor with the magic.


sitting next to grant hill and tracy mcgrady wearing a suit because of his bad back.

I think 1/2 of the lottery will be high school players anyways, so we will have to wait until after tonights game to see who goes first.

I wonder if the Magic will rebuild again this offseason. Will they trade McGrady to the Bulls for Chandler, Jamal Crawford, + ? and the Bulls 1st-rounder? They'd probably have 2 of the top 5 picks in the draft then.

I think they will trade Juwan Howard though and keep Gooden.
