"I more than anything want to be on a championship contender and to be there to contribute and win a championship," Christie says. "I'm ready. I'm able."
Obviously, Christie has an uphill battle ahead of him. Flaming out spectacularly in both Dallas and Los Angeles the past two seasons won't help. It really is amazing how quickly he deteriorated after being traded to Orlando, isn't it?
