He's lucky he brought over Battie and Alston with him as well. I think him and Alston are pretty good friends.

It still does suck to be traded from a contender to a completely average team.

Probably pissed he's going to a team that will have a lot of capspace, no superstar, no definite location (taking New Jersey off the jereseys?), sells jerseys with reversible sides of other NBA players from other teams with 10 game ticket packages (in essence advertising the other teams coming to town more than the home team). From a contender that opened up its wallets to make it rain all over Orlando (instead of just by Rashard Lewis' house).

He's probably also pissed that he won't get to play in the new greatest arena in the league, the Amway Center....





Most of all, he's probably pissed that the state of New Jersey will be keeping 9% of his salary in state income tax while Florida didn't take any from him.

Amway center looks nice......but Amway....very embarassing


Great point about the state taxes......OUCH!!!! Guys signing contracts in states like that should have a clause that if traded to a higher taxed state the new team coveres the difference.
