A humongous year for Maurice Harkless

When we start talking about what we expect from the Magic this year, there is a very nebulous response. At this point, it seems the expectation is not necessarily the Playoffs. Those would be nice and not a detriment to the plan, at least as how we perceive it. The expectation is to start winning […]

A second chance for Ben Gordon

There was a time when Ben Gordon struck fear into opponents’ hearts. He won Sixth Man of the Year in 2005. He was stellar in the 2009 Playoffs, averaging 24.3 points per game and 37.0 percent shooting from beyond the arc. In that crazy series, Gordon fed it with big shot after big shot for […]

What is the future of Magic’s 2012 draftees?

Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders estimates about 22 of the 60 players drafted each year since 2001 have what can be called careers in the NBA (getting the second contract and hanging around beyond their rookie deals). The 2011 draftees — like Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris — are starting to get their pay days. […]

Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris and restricted free agency

With the season slowly approaching (slowly, being the key word), there is really only one thing left for the Magic to do. Their young players are finally starting to grow up and reach free agency for the first time. More specifically, Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris are on the final years of their rookie contracts […]

Competition grows for future All-Star Games

Teams are beginning to put in bids for the 2017 and 2018 NBA All-Star Games as the league sets its calendar for future years.

Is Rich DeVos a winning owner?

This is a question Magic fans always seem like they need to be answering. Especially now that the Magic are at the bottom of the standings, there is wonder whether Rich DeVos will put what is necessary to get back to the top of the mountain and, eventually, win a championship. The one thing no […]

Nikola Vucevic continues rebounding mastery

Nikola Vucevic is a growing player. If it were not for a series of injuries that knocked him out of 25 games, who knows what kind of season we would be talking about from Vucevic. The second-year center is an extreme bright spot for the Magic. He is a capable offensive player with a solid […]

Original team maintains its bond

The 25th Anniversary season has come and gone pretty quickly. Maybe there were points when fans wanted it to go quicker with the way the 23-win season progressed. It certainly was not the 25th anniversary season the Magic envisioned when they probably began making plans for the Silver Anniversary Season. It is what it is. […]
