Well it finally happened. Dwight Howard got traded. And I can tell you this, the Orlando Magic got screwed. Because D-Ho was being a douche for the past year, he pretty much ruined any kind of trade value the Magic could have gotten. Why? Because everybody knew he wanted out of town. Look, I understand that Bore-lando sucks. You’ve got Disney World and Universal Studios (the Harry Potter rides are pretty legit). That’s pretty much it. So they traded him for whatever they could get apparently, which amounted to a Little Tikes basketball hoop, NBA Live ’95, 2 free flights on Southwest Airlines, and the ability to pick first in this years NBA Fantasy Football Draft (Pretty sure they are gonna take Aaron Rodgers!).
So let’s talk for real in what happened in this 4 team mega trade. Here is who got what:
Lakers – Dwight Howard
76ers – Andrew Bynum, Jason Richardson
Nuggets – Andre Iguadola
Magic – Aaron Afflalo, Al Harrington, 3 PROTECTED first round picks (in all honesty I’d have rather had the package that got me 2 free flights on Southwest with NBA Live ’95)
Yes their were other small bit players in this trade, but one that actually mean anything. This trade was pure bullshit. If you offer that trade in a video game, the computer probably fines you. What I wanna know is what naked pictures of the Orlando Magic owner did these other teams have. This trade strengthens every team EXCEPT, wait for it, the Orlando Magic. So the Magic trade away the best player in this whole 4 team deal, and end up with the worst deal? What in the hell is going on here?!! I’m pretty much gonna have to watch the Lakers and Heat on TV all season next year, this is gonna suck so bad. Hey NBA, just get rid of all but like 8 teams, if trades like this are gonna keep happening. It’s not worth the fan-vestment for all the other cities.
