    I think people will get over with the Dwight Saga slowly but surely. One thing that Magic organization needs to learn that, we need our start players, coach and GM should be on one page. The way it ended with D12, it is not the recipe of Championship. This is far fetched but I think D12 might consider playing for Orlando at some point.
