It was easy to look at the Magic’s young roster and predict pace would be an important part of the team’s offense. The media (yes, I am looking at me) pegged the team already as one that would get up and down the floor and try to run at every opportunity. With guards like Victor […]
Magic season is right around the corner and single game tickets for the first half of the season (through Jan. 3) went on sale Friday. With the Magic at 2-0 (did you get your half-off Papa John’s Wednesday and Saturday?), there is at least some reason to get excited for opening night Oct. 30 against […]
The Magic improved to 2-0 in the preseason with another road with with plenty of positives to go along with a few things the team needs to improve on. That is what you would expect in the second preseason game. A 99-96 win over the Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday saw the Magic […]
The Orlando Magic have been in full-blown rebuilding mode ever since trading franchise cornerstone Dwight Howard away. They still seem to be putting the finishing touches on their climb up, but the 2014-15 season could finally begin to yield some positive results. Orlando has a ton of exciting young talent, including 2013 first round pick […]
If that wasn’t enough negativity, there was this diss by ESPN (anchors John Buccigross and Jay Harris were on the set) on Tuesday night after the Magic beat the Miami Heat in a preseason overtime game.
The network only showed highlights by the Heat, who were playing at home for the first time without LeBron James.
Buccigross: “Brother can’t get a Magic highlight?”
Harris: “No, no, no.”
Send your letters of anger to Bristol, Connecticut.
Harris, seconds later: “I bet everybody in Orlando is going to be mad at me.”
Buccigross: “And they should be. That’s bad journalism.”
This is going to be a bit of a stretch. Is there anyone in the whole wide world who thinks the Magic can actually surprise everyone and make the Playoffs. I mean, did you see Tuesday night’s game?! OK, no one is making that kind of a conclusion after one preseason game. No matter who […]

So the Magic won 108-101 in overtime over the Heat last night in the preseason. That is not what is important though. The scores — and really stats — do not matter so much in the preseason. What we want to know at this point is what does this mean for the bigger picture. Here […]
The biggest learning experience for the Magic in their first preseason game did not come in giving up a seven-point lead with three minutes to play. It did not come from Andrew Nicholson cutting baseline and popping open for a 15-foot jumper to send the game to overtime. Nor did it come from the Magic […]

The Magic’s D-League affiliate, the Erie BayHawks, have acquired Magic Summer League and training camp invitee Seth Curry from the Santa Cruz Warriors. Erie traded away a first round pick in the 2015 D-League draft and returning leading scorer Scott Suggs. Of course, the D-League is not really about winning and losing in the end. The […]
