Actually.. the only reason Duncan DIDNT sign with Orlando was because of David Robinson.. but thats another story for another time. In the end ..I'd say the Pistons won this because Ben Wallace turned into a great SHUTDOWN, SHOT BLOCKING Center.
    The real mystery is why did Orlando choose to trade Ben Wallace instead of Bo Outlaw.

    question/opinion for everyone. If Duncan hadnt won a title with the spurs prior to him becoming a FA do you think he woulda pulled a LeBron and signed with the magic

    Prime Grant Hill... 20ppg?!? He wasn't that good to begin with so it shouldn't be that much of a surprise.

    And I won't even mention his other stats because they're just average.

    He was traded the same LeBron was traded. Pistons/Cavs could have been stubborn, had the sign for less money hurting them in dealing with other free agents. Or do the right thing and get something out of someone who wants to walk.

    At least Detroit ended up getting the last laugh in the end.
    Dwight Howard is a Top 5 Center of All-Time, no one in this league can touch him.

    The Orlando Magic are a dominant contender and are a better franchise than I ever thought possible.

    Raph12 is always right.

    How can it be before Bird Rights? Bird Rights are AKA "Larry Bird Rule".

    So essentially Grant wasn't going to resign with Detroit no matter what, sort of like the Melo situation now?

    More like LeBron. All indication would be that he would opt out during the summer, but there wasn't the same kind of drama during the season like Melo.

    I thought him and Duncan were real close to paring in Orlando? Duncan backed out last minute?

    Prime Grant Hill was a top 3-4 player in the league even better than Scottie. Would you call Scottie just average?

    I can't agree with you on that..as much as I love Grant Hill, Scottie was better all-around, the bulls won all those titles because they had the best two players in the game at the time..
