Equipment manager was in ‘heaven’ with Magic

That is former Magic equipment manager Jason Rivera who spoke with WSOC TV’s Phil Orban in Charlotte earlier this week.

Rivera was a constant presence with the Magic as a ball boy when he was 12 years old moving up the chain to equipment manager for the Magic. He left the organization recently and joined Steve Clifford’s staff in Charlotte. The Stan Van Gundy crew rides deep, apparently.

Rivera has plenty of stories to tell from his two-and-a-half decades in NBA locker rooms. From Shaquille O’Neal to Michael Jordan, he has taken care of the greats. And they have all been good memories for the former Magic staffer.
