    Default Rashard & Wince fueding in ORL?

    http://www.realgm.com/src_wiretap_ar...her_in_orlando

    Magic stars Vince Carter and Rashard Lewis are trying to learn how to work together on the court.

    Orlando is 26-13 this season. The Magic had 38 wins before losing 12 games last year.

    "Vince and I were talking. We have to make this work," Lewis said. "It feels different (this season). But we got to make it work. Nobody's going anywhere.

    "We're not jelling. We're playing OK, but we're not elite. ... where we need to be. It feels like we're one of last-place teams."


    Do you think they miss Hedo... the Glu that held the team together?

    Turkoglu was a player who complimented Lewis and Howard. He was a facilitator. Carter is not a facilitator. No shock here, they changed the formula and so the result changed.

    Carter seems to be a distraction everywhere he plays. Wasn't there a power struggle between him, Kidd and RJ back in New Jersey a couple years back?

    If VC is going to stand around the perimter and jack shots like Rashard does, the Magic are in big trouble. But, if VC is going to consistently beat him man off the drible, drive into the paint and finish or find open teammates, the Magic will be tough to beat.

    IMO, I don't think VC is tough enough to continue driving into the paint for 7 straight games - unless he's getting booed like a Raps crowd.
