- Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “As Shaq delivered his jersey-retirement speech Tuesday night at Staples Center, home of the L.A. Lakers, Dwight Howard also was in the building. Dwight was waiting in the Lakers’ lockeroom at halftime, waiting to build (or rescue) his legacy in L.A. as others paid homage to Shaq’s. In other words, it was a double whammy for the Magic and their fans.”
- George Gervin, a family friend and mentor, will be rooting on Tobias Harris when the Orlando Magic play the San Antonio Spurs later tonight.
- The Spurs will be a stiff test for the Magic.
- Nikola Vucevic is looking forward to matching up against Tim Duncan, a player that he’s admired from afar since his childhood days.
