On the podcast, Adam Papageorgiou of Magic Basketball Online and I discussed with Jake the extension decisions on Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris along with the first three games for Elfrid Payton and the Magic this season.
The Magic are a few games into their 26th season with a ton of questions left to answer. The deadline for extensions passed, but many of you in the last few weeks had questions about Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic and their overall value to the franchise. As always, well maybe always is the wrong […]
In the first game, it was offensive rebounding and points in the paint that did the Magic in. In the second game, it was turnovers. What would the Magic be trying to squelch in the third game of the season?
The Magic seemed set on building a defensive minded team with the way they have drafted the last few years — Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon and Elfrid Payton — and the overall direction the franchise seems to want to take.

As things stand now, though, Tobias Harris seems set to hit restricted free agency as neither side appears close to agreeing to a contract extension. The latest report comes from Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders, who reports Harris’ camp […]
Victor Oladipo‘s injury has kind of soured the beginning of the season for the Magic. Orlando is down one of its best players and is a team that cannot afford to be down those kinds of players. The Magic are limited in their potential scorers and creators offensively. Add in being down Channing Frye, and […]
One day, not so long ago, Ryan Anderson was crushing teams’ spirits in a Magic uniform. Some day soon, Channing Frye could be used in the same way in pick and pops to burn teams with the 3-pointer, making teams stick to the perimeter and opening things up in the paint and driving lanes. That […]
