      I didn't catch it AND forgot to set a timer for it. But I'm sure ESPN will re-air it enough times.

      I didn't see the Announcement, but HBO was playing the Bird/Magic documentary a few months ago. That one was pretty good.

      I thought that was better than the announcement, and gave better insight into their lives...

      So, are you saying we shouldn't watch the Announcement?

      Kyrie reminds me a bit of Tyreke (Tyreke being a little bigger). Ricky, though, reminds me of a true point guard with crazy pg skills. Hopefully he can fully recover.

      the announcement was totally different than the bird/magic documentary on HBO. As a huge Magic Johnson fan, I enjoyed it. It showed perspective of how it affected the people around him at the time. Kinda weird not hearing from Isiah Thomas considering that they were supposed to be close friends at the time. The gay comments post announcement must've killed the friendship entirely.

      Ric Bucher is about as reliable as a 20 year old Jaguar, but he's reporting that Orlando will let Dwight fire everyone if he re-signs with them this summer. This is insane:

      "One source close to the situation told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher that the Magic have promised Howard that they will add a quality player before Thursday's deadline and that Howard can decide the fate of both GM Otis Smith and coach Stan Van Gundy at the end of the season if he signs an extension."

      http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...-dwight-howard

      If I'm Howard, I leave Orlando just based on this rumor alone. Because if Smith and/or SVG get fired, everyone will look at Dwight. Regardless of whether it really was his call. And you know how he likes being the good guy.

      he can fire the gm and coach if he signs an extension? wow.

      actually, i'm kinda tired of the whole where will dwight end up.

      is it true the bulls offered a pretty good deal and he said no to playing in chicago?

      cause he wants to be "the man"?

      well you're the man in orlando, why don't you just stay there.

      Weird. He wouldn't be "the man" in Dallas or LAL, either. I wouldn't even put him above D-Will in NJ, but I feel I'm alone in that opinion.

      At this point the Dwight Howard situation is worse than the Denver-Melo situation from a year ago. The only thing at this point is that Orlando can't fleece the Knicks for draft picks until 2020.

      I agree with you. I think DWill has a much stronger personality than Howard and while he may publicly cede the spotlight/leadership to Howard, I think it will still be DWill's team.

      Am i the only one who thinks howard is over rated? He's a great defensive player, but he has no offensive game what so ever, his free throws are better than noah's but in the same conversation. This is borderline insane already

      He's better than Petro

      Hmm...if the Nets do make this deal for Diaw, they can conceivably sign Howard + Dwill and keep Lopez at 10 mil a year

      Bogut & Stephen Jackson to Warriors
      Ellis, Udoh, & Kwame to Bucks

      Great deal for Bucks. Not sure why Golden State is doing this.

      Kwame is good for something.....first Pau now Bogut.
