I want a separate oral history on the 96 Magic, Marilyn Manson's band and Sesame Street on Ice cast being in the same hotel bar.
The 90s Orlando Magic provided the blueprint for how modern NBA teams build their rosters. They were ahead of their time.
Or, like, the idea that a random D-Leaguer can just drink a vial of magic HGH water and become LeBron.
Sad part for Magic is that the atmosphere at games will never be the same. Times have changed. O-rena was rocking every night. It was fun.
When the Magic beat the Pacers in 95 ECF is was unbelievable. Never seen Orlando so excited about anything. People were so happy.
In my mind, if the Magic ever decide to retire a player's jersey, Nick Anderson's should be the first one hanging up in the rafters.
That Magic team was so much fun to watch on a nightly basis. They had so much talent and so much confidence. They knew they were special.
Nik Vucevic said, in response to a question, that the Atlanta Hawks are an example the Magic can attempt to follow.
Willie Green reiterated he plans to continue playing for at least 2-3 years. He said he's open to returning to the Magic.
One NBA team headed to Brazil for a preseason game: Orlando Magic will play Flamengo of Brazil's pro basketball league on Oct. 17.
The Magic have not had talks, informal or otherwise, with Scott Skiles. I believe the team will talk with him in the future, though.
Elfrid Payton finished the season with 533 assists. That's 11 shy of tying Penny Hardaway's Magic single-season rookie record.
FINAL: Heat 105, Sixers 101. The Heat's season is over and will have the 10th spot in the lottery after the Nets defeated the Magic.
Wolves end season w/ 25% chance of winning NBA Draft lottery. Knicks 19.9% 76ers 15.6% Lakers 11.9, Magic 8.8% Kings 6.3%
