Tuesday’s Magic Word

  • Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “No Orlando Magic player has come under more scrutiny this year than Rashard Lewis. While bouncing between small forward and power forward, Lewis is shooting just 29 percent from three-point range and averaging 10.7 points, and he’s only surpassed 13 points in a game once this year. And because of his monstrous contract ($118 million over seven years), he finds himself under constant probing from Magic fans on message boards, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, talk radio and every other form of media fans now have access to voicing their views on. After scoring four points against Atlanta last night, Lewis is trying to stay patient and not worry too much about six-game slump.”
  • Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Jameer Nelson practiced fully with his Orlando Magic teammates on Tuesday, and it’s increasingly likely that he’ll be able to play Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz despite his sprained left ankle.”
  • Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post has more on Jameer Nelson’s possible return.
  • Check out Rashard Lewis’ exclusive Nike Hyperdunks. Very nice.
  • Dwight Howard posts on his official blog: “I was really happy to see Marcin [Gortat] play the way that he did. He was playing with a lot energy and hustling and I just told him after the game that that’s the kind of energy that we need from him every night. I don’t think people understand how hard it is for a 7-footer like me and Marcin to be on the floor and get to the ground before a little guard gets it. But him doing that got us all pumped up.”
  • Kurt Helin of ProBasketballTalk talks about Howard’s growth on offense.

Interesting to see that this post and the one following Rashard's shoes became a topics about what he earns and/or deserves. I don't expect from him to be a superstar. Never did. However, if we already saw his best under his contract with the Magic... I don't know what to say.

have people ever thought that the constant switching of sweet lew although good for the team in the long run is just too much for him at this time....consitancy is a NBA players best friend....plu to the people who question reshards contract yes i agrre its too much not just for him but for anybody but thats the contract the organization put in front of him and he would of been crazy not to sign but get over it cuz he will not ever to be able to really earn it until/unless he himself brings us 4 or more titles....so its a sorta catch 22.....leave the man alone

I think you might have meant, "for a 7-footer like me and Marcin to BE on the floor..."

If Dwight and Marcin keep pe-ing on the floor, Vince will be in big trouble.
