    The Magic's starting lineup has been changing quite a bit due to injuries and sucking in general.
    I just went with the starting lineup from their previous game in order to save me some time.​

    How strong is the Magic's tank?

    Those Nikola Vucevic stats look pretty damn good though.

    There are no winners in tank battles, just mutually assured destruction.

    Orlando is riding an 11-game losing streak.

    Whatever happens, good that we own their 2nd-round draft pick this year.

    We own their 2nd rounder next year also, which could be just as good! I seem to remember a mod [now admin] hatin' on that trade.... hmmmm. I can't quite remember who that was. :gap:

    In hindsight Keys was right... Jon Leuer turned out to be very valuable. :chuckles: Looks like Grant had his cake and ate it too... and then got another piece of cake for free just for the fuck of it.

    I know we were just awful for part of the year, but right now it seems really strange we're still in the bunch that includes the bobcats and magic. Win this one and we'll be 11-11 over the past 22 games and 7-3 over the past 10. We're suddenly playing as well as any team outside of the top 5 in the east. And we're doing it on the strength of Kyrie and Tristan.

    This is a game like the last one, there's really no reason that we shouldn't be up enough that the starters don't have to play the 4th quarter if we really learned our lesson from the Pistons game.

    That's what I mean. Let me put an 'also' in there so it is clearer.

    You can lump me in too. I hated that trade with the Magic. But I don't now...

    Going to this game. First since the last game of the 2010-11 season. Ryan Hollins and Anthony Parker were in that starting lineup. Somehow we won. It was Joe Tait's last game though, so I was glad to be a part of it.

    Anyways, looking forward to seeing Kyrie and co. in person.

    This Pocket Tanks? Was a fantastic game. I remember everyone in Jr. High School getting on computers JUST to play this.

    I expect another win, maybe even another blowout.....Magic are what we were 2 seasons ago but at least they got something for their superstar

    What?? The awful contracts of Al Harrington & Aaron Afflalo? Or the solid , but not great prospects in Vuvecic & Harkcless?

    We got a large TPE that allowed Gilbert to not commit too much money to our salary in 2010-2011. Having a TPE is like having a caphold, it means you count it against the floor, until you renounce it or use it. That allowed Gilbert to spend money on B-Diddy, in a seperate trade, withtout hitting the tax line. Had we acquired players, we would not have had this same flexibility. We all commend Gilbert for opening up his checkbook, without realizing the TPE made it posssible to spend money on a player we are still paying to this day.

    We also got 2 future 1sts from Mia, and 2 future 2nds. The future first in 2015 (could be the year after the big 3 is broken up). All the other picks can be packaged to reposition ourselves.

    We hit bottom in one season, stockpiled assets, and landed the #1 pick in the draft along with our own #4.


    We came out much better. Orlando may have the opportunity to get the #1 pick this year, but they have so much cap commited to mediocre players to allow them to make moves like we do.

    It's Tank Wars. :)

    The Flash version. I tried to get a good screenshot of the old DOS version, but they were all really poor quality.
