    $10 bucks says he had Carter in the back of his mind when he said this.

    "Howard on the best place to live: 'Orlando. There’s no state taxes.'”

    Texas doesn't have a state tax either. :cool:

    I like how he's hyping up Orlando. If it was someone like LBJ or Chris Bosh they would have milked that last question by saying something like "anywhere with no state taxes" or something.

    His first priority is to pull over a Chris Paul, so he's pimping Orlando.

    He really isn't chomping at the bit to pull a Carmelo. He's trying to do what Wade did - make management sweat so they will surround him with serious talent.

    Orlando's going to have to trade him.

    Somebody needs to stage an intervention fast before he's been completely Steve Francis-ed.

    You got it. The Wade/Kobe formula. Apply pressure to get management to do what is needed. He obviously wants Gilbert playing over Jameer. If I were Jameer, I think I'd go request a trade. And Dwight obviously wants another really good player alongside him. Just don't know who they could acquire with Jameer, Hedo, and Bass.

    I still don't understand why they made that Arenas trade.

    Because Rashard Lewis was trash and they hoped Arenas would become a productive player for them. It was a reach, no doubt.

    Stupid gamble, They dumped Rashard who was for sure done, for Arenas who could be done. Both horrible contracts but Arenas is longer actually.

    Miami is also in the state of Florida. Maybe he will go there!!!

    It really who do think was worse Rashard Lewis or Gilbert Arenas or who has the best chance to improve on their current position.

    Arenas in my opinion was a totally better gamble, plus I remember reading that Washington had a decent injury insurance on him that I would suspect was passed on to Orlando.
