Gilbert Arenas and Jason Richardson were sent to Orlando under very different circumstances, the two are happy for the opportunity and still getting used to their new surroundings writes Jeremy Bauman of SLAM.

–The Magic are chasing the Bulls for the third best record in the East. Tonight’s game could be something of a Playoff preview (minus Joakim Noah).

–Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard were named starters for the Eastern Conference All-Star Team. Rose, though, might not play tonight after discovering he has stomach ulcers.

–Last year Derrick Rose was knocked out of two meeting with the Magic by contact with Dwight Howard. Howard told him to jump off of two feet to avoid injury. Appears he has taken that advice.

–The last time the Magic faced the Bulls the team was not sick yet, Vince Carter was playing well and Carlos Boozer was just coming off the injured list. Boy, things have changed.
