    Who else would it be? Maybe Chicago? New Orleans would get my vote.

    They've got potential. For us the problem is Asik was Dwight-lite. If only Dwight had outside range like Davis we would have kept Asik.

    Happy for Asik, just hope whenever we play them we win.

    Best rebounder in the game? Vucevic

    They played the magic.. There are typically a lot of rebounds when a crappy team is throwing up bricks. But they are definitely a nice defensive combo, but you wouldn't rely on them in an end game situation to seal it up.

    this was one of the reasons I was against the trade. Davis is gonna rip us a new one.

    Kyle O'Quinn, Tobias Harris, Nikola Vucevic, Elfrid Payton, and Evan Fournier was there starting lineup tonight.

    They're worse than the Lakers, at least until they get Channing Frye and Oladipo back.

    Asik's presence will make Davis' life a hell of a lot easier.
    Pretty sure it's safe to say AD is officially top 3 behind LBJ & KD.

    Davis was never a center. He's better at the 4. Stats don't take weight into account.

    The Lakers wish they were as bad as the Magic.

    Toss in Ryan Anderson and you have another 22 points and 9 rebounds.

    Easily the best 3 man rotation at C-PF.

    Defensively yes.

    On offense, Davis is still raw on post moves while Asik is still looking for the ball after the Harden pass from last season.
