In Response to So who the hell will block out DHoward now?
[QUOTE]Perkins was one of the major reasons we beat the Magic last year. I can't understand this trade? And what about Doc's "This starting 5 has never been beaten in a playoff series!" ?

Perkins was dominated by Howard in their last meeting and Perk's defense is vastly overrated.
Let Howard score 40 and get 20 rebounds and the Cs still win by 20 because the Magic do not have enough perimeter offense to beat the Cs perimeter defense.
Perkins missed the entire first half of the season and the Cs just happened to have had the 2nd best defense in the league - what a surprise!!!!!!
This is the mindset - Halloween is Nov 1st, Halloween is Nov 1st, Halloween is Nov 1st, Halloween is Nov 1st...... well if you say it enough, it must be true..... Perk is a great post defender, Perk is a great post defender, Perk is a great post defender......
Let's try this one - Perk has hands of stone, thinks he is Hakeem / Kareem / Russ / Wilt / Howard..... um he isn't..... but he continues to think he is. Now he can be a back up to Ibaka. Perk's mindset - run the offense through me.... objective perspective of Perk - 3 seconds waiting to happen, turnover waiting to happen, hands of stone, overrated defense, terrible footwork, no offensive game facing or back to the basket, terrible free throw shooter.... journeyman center.......
Shaq, Krstic, Murphy, and Davis will all guard Howard (even though Miami will take Orlando out of the playoffs before there is even a chance to think about guarding Howard) and they are all better offensive players than Perk.
Let's all say it together - "some of us blindfolded, green-glasses homers tend to overrate the talent of our teams"...... One man's treasure is another man's trash...... OKC cannot afford to pay Green real money next year but they will have two centers both of whom are likely better than Perk - Nazr and Ibaka.
Please remind of the last season where Perk did not have surgery.....
