We're like, the greatest thing everrrrrr


We traded Anderson for Courtney Lee.. lulz :lol:

Carter for Battie+Alston :roll:

Thorn had 2 GREAT trades with NJ, then a bunch of stupid trades/draft picks/decisions. I guess all is forgiven since he gave us JKidd and VC... but damn those mistakes hurt.

Anderson was a great pick by thorn who had to be moved because of ratner

I disagree.

Thorn's decision to trade Ryan Anderson should be independent from anything else. In 2008, Ryan Anderson was just another rookie, who had an okay season, on a bad team, he could have easily been left out of trade.

Thorn wanted Courtney Lee to make himself look better, Courtney Lee was the hot prospect of the hour, and Thorn didn't want to look like he just gave Carter away, which he did by not trading him much, much earlier.

I thought it was reported that although Thorn liked Lee, Orlando would not do the trade without the Lee for Anderson swap?

Ryan Anderson as drafted one pick BEFORE Courtney lee

Thorn drafted the right guy.


He needed a sweetener for someone to take back the Vince Carter contract that Ratner made him sign
