    This is going to look funny when Martin is a Magic in a few days.

    Its good that Morey did not sign Lin to a Billion dollar contract. The Knicks would have matched that.

    Sounds like he knows he is gone.

    Once LA gets Dwight (hopefully soon) we can start looking for trade partners for Kevin. He would be a great 6th man on a championship team.

    The second quote tells me hes referring to himself as the "big time scorer" though. Perhaps he's tryign to change Morey's mind? lol

    I'm surprised to see Kmart quotes. I wonder if they reached out to him or the other way around. Odd either way, considering he may be gone soon.

    Yeah, is he referring to himself as the two guard next to Lin? Has he been under a rock lately?

    I wouldn't mind if we moved Martin.
    He was originally brought here to be Yao's Robin...never got to happen...Let the youth ride.

    With the Lin acquisition, Martin really needs to be moved. Lin needs a defensive guard ala Shumpert to cover his lack of defensive skills for now.

    Quote #2: Who in the world is this big time scorer Kevin Martin is talking about????

    Quote #3: I'm not sure if this move plus us continuously going after Dwight Howard constitutes an official "re-building mode". And once we OFFICIALY begin rebuilding Kevin Martin will not be apart of it....lol

    But I DO hope that he can bring here what he had in New York:

    He said "The Rockets" as if he's no longer a part of them.

    Hmmmm.

    LA isn't getting Dwight unless we get Bynum, in either case Martin will be a Magic.

    Only two realistic ways we don't get one of those two guys IMO:

    1. LA goes insane and offers Gasol AND Bynum in exchange for Howard + bad contracts, and Orlando is dumb enough to think they can contend with that.

    2. Some mystery team swoops in with an offer none of us saw coming to steal the deal from us.

    Very insightful of him to talk about Jeremy Lamb that way when he referred to the big time scorer

    Lmao. Come on now. Kmart can score pretty well. I know Id rather watch Lamb cause he actually drives to the basket and can shoot the 3. But Kmart can score. He may not have gotten to the line as much this year cause of the newer rules but hes still pretty good. Hes not a big time scorer anymore though.

    Kmart is in a contract year. I would not be surprised to see him play a lot better than last season. I just don't see him being a rocket 2 weeks from now.

    That was exactly who I was thinking of when Martin made those comments.

    :cool:
