Default Battie over Darko

I was reading somewhere that they will be starting Battie over Darko and will have Hedo as the starting SF... and have yet to choose the starting SG...

I think they should start Darko!

damn they should... but maybe it's because of Dwight Howard... Darko may affect his game-play... Battie on the other hand plays totally differnet with Howard... this lets them focus on what they do well... SG... JJ... who else???!!!

the only way darko wont start is if his work ethic is really as bad as it supposedly was in detroit. darko has the potential to score and he already has shown he can rebound and is a superb shotblocker.

Darko should start because Orlando needs to start off right from the 1st preseason game, Battie is a career backup with no future as a starter unless you want to continue to lose as a team, Orlando doesn't have the time to waste, barring injury Darko impact this year can be as great as Boris Diaw was with the Suns.

I heard Keyon Dooling might be starting at the 2 guard spot.

Battie will start going into training camp. Darko will have the chance to challenge for the starting spot during training camp and the preseason. Unless he totally sucks and blows his chance, Darko will most likely start for the season opener.

Keyon Dooling another career backup starting? too bad Orlando didn't get Thabo Sefolosha, got Reddick instead another career backup.

so to have darko as 6th man they are motivating him to take the starting position... i dont see any problem with that... hope darko sees it the same way!

i think the best lineup for Magic would be:

Nelson
JJ
Tedo
Darko
Howard

If Darko isn't better than Battie, Orlando will not make the playoffs, In addition if Nelson, Reddick, Darko and Arroyo. Don't play well night after night Orlando doesn't win. What Howard, Hedo, and Hill did in the last 1.5 years before the last 30 games of last season didn't lead to winning. The new players have to make a difference or else.
