We Are All Orlando Magic Fans

Trade proposals are the favorite pasttime on this site. One that was brought up a few weeks ago has stuck with me.

Rip and Tayshaun for Vince Carter and Marcin Gortat.

There are reasons why this trade would be both a good and bad idea for the Pistons. One of the reasons I came up with for why it might be a good trade surprised me.

Personally, I think Rip and Tayshuan give the Magic a better chance to win than Vince Carter does. Tayshaun plus shot blocker equals great defense. Those two will add Championship swagger to a team that sorely needs it. And thinking about it, how fun would it be to root for Rip and Tayshaun versus the "Three Idiots" (Bollywood movie reference FTW).

The Pistons would have to deal with a new "AI." But would get a solid young Center with a good contract and would be set up well financially in the future.

And, as an added bonus, Pistons fans would gain rooting interest in Orlando (something we probably have right now anyway).
