Al Harrington has had time to contemplate it all what with the staph infection that derailed his career and the one season with the Orlando Magic in which he barely got off the bench. And as he has been waiting to learn of his new destination with the Magic likely to either trade him or waive him sooner rather than later the 33-year-old who swears he isn't done yet has had his views crystallized on today's NBA. "Being in that situation in Orlando you get a real good look at politics and stuff like that the part of the game that's not attractive — just the business side of it" Harrington told USA TODAY Sports recently while training in Las Vegas.
