It’s been a heck of a year (and a casting call)

A year ago, the Orlando Magic were an unproven bunch, an unorthodox collection of players that few critics believed could truly compete with the big boys. The same could be said for Orlando Magic Daily, which is celebrating its one-year anniversary this week. We at Orlando Magic Daily were lucky to pick the perfect time to start this blog, getting a chance to chronicle the most exciting time to be a Magic fan since the mid-90s. The Magic, as you know, made a rousing run to the NBA Finals last spring. And thanks to the play of the Magic, Orlando Magic Daily grew faster and bigger than I or anyone else expected. Going to the games, interviewing the players, interacting with other blogs and journalists — the experience has been incredible. But real-life jobs and commitments (Woody Wommack works at Naples Daily News; I work at the Orlando Sentinel) have kept us from contributing the amount of time we’d like to contribute. And that’s where you come in. As we prepare for another playoff run that should extend well beyond Memorial Day, we’re looking for more writers for this site — writers with a passion for basketball, a level head and some writing ability. If you’re interested, email zachomd (at) with all the relevant information (writing samples, qualifications, references, etc.). Thanks.
