Why Dwight to the Nets? Nash to Orlando?

You sit back watching Orlando Magic play and you get shots of Otis Smith watching the game. I think to myself, what the hell is he thinking? Orlando is playing in the mids of the Eastern Conference like last year. No real improvement at all. Why is he sitting on his hands not making any moves to try to improve this basketball team? Does he want Dwight to return? Is the reason he isn't considering trading Nelson is simply because he is tight with Dwight believing he will lure him to return? I'm pretty certain that Dwight doesn't want to play with Nelson any longer when you hear about him wanting to go play with D-Will in New Jersey.

Another thing I don't understand is Dwight's top team to go to is New Jersey. Out of all the teams in the NBA you can choose, you want to go to New Jersey? The same team that was beaten by Orlando  by about 20 points. Wouldn't doubt it if Orlando could beat the Nets without Dwight on the floor. The team is 2-8 currently as the 2nd worst team in the Eastern Conference only above the Wizards. If Dwight wants to win a championship, I would suggest looking elsewhere.

If someone asked me what Orlando needed....I would say a point guard who can make players around him better. Dish assists and be a solid scoring option when he is needed. Who fits that bill? Chris Paul was obviously my first choice, but no way Orlando can get him now with him in LA. Why not get Steve Nash? Why Nash or CP3? They were in bad situations where they are. Neither can win a championship if they want to. All PHX fans want Nash to go to a different team to compete for an NBA championship. I say why not take a risk? Hell if you must, try to get Grant Hill back in an Orlando uniform for old time sakes to make Nash feel more comfortable.

My proposed trade:
Nash, Grant Hill, and Channing Frye-Some may ask why these 3 players? Orlando will probably need a power forward in return if they give up a guy like Ryan Anderson who in my opinion is probably the 2nd best player on the team right now. Frye can hit 3s as well. Of course Hill for reunion purposes and Nash for obvious reasons.

Ryan Anderson, Jameer Nelson, 1 or 2 1st rounders, and if that ain't enough....give them whomever they want besides Dwight Howard. I doubt they would want Turk back o. As long as Nash comes to Orlando, I could care less who comes with him or who doesn't. Otis has got to do something. I figure he thinks Dwight will return. LOL!

Rondo no longer a top 5 pg? IMO he isn't.....

I've defended Rondo big time because of his defense, passing skills, ect. At this point, after making top 5 by each position. He is #6 on my list due to his poor offense. It has got to improve. Here is my list of top 5 pgs right now:

1.CP3-best point guard in the game for the last couple of years. Defense is solid, passing is great, and offense is also a good asset. He is the complete package.
2.Derrick Rose-He is probably the best scoring point guard in the game today. Defense really doesn't help him all that much. That is something he needs to improve on along with getting his teammates involved offensively. That is one of the main reasons why he isn't the best today.
3.Westbrook-Some folks may think he is too high on my list, but I could argue that he is just as good as Rose. Not only offensively, but passing as well. During the regular season the guy avg over 8 assists per game along with a nice scoring total. Any of these top 3 guards I'd love to see in Orlando next season. The toughest part for Westbrook is his contract salary is only 4 million. I doubt Thunder would part ways. Rose is reigning MVP and the star of the Bulls. No way Bulls trade him for anybody other than Howard on the Magic. CP3 is on a team ran by the NBA.
4.D-Will-Can score 20 and get his teammates involved. The guy isn't that great defensively, but is a great point guard. Hopefully for Jersey he will stick around. Write it down now!! Kevin Love will be a member of the New Jersey Nets after next season.
5.Steve Nash-This may surprise some or it may not. Nash has been one of the best point guards for a fairly long time in the NBA. Two NBA MVPs to prove it. He still has it. Offense is still solid and is one of the best passers in the game.

Agree or disagree? Where does Rondo rank on your point guard list?
