Eager to honor and celebrate the great players, coaches and executives who have been a part of their illustrious 25-year history, the Orlando Magic are planning to create a Magic Hall of Fame that will be on display at the Amway Center.
Magic CEO Alex Martins made the announcement on Friday morning – just hours before the Magic’s home-opener to begin the 25th anniversary season – that the Hall of Fame will be a way to help bridge the past with the future of Magic basketball. Initial plans are for it to be designed so that Magic fans can enjoy the exhibits on game nights at the Amway Center.
“We’ve been trying to find a way to recognize the great players who have played for us that in some way memorializes them within the building for our fans,” Martins said. “We feel like this is the perfect way to do it. It will be a nice recognition for players, coaches and executives who have been a part of our history.’’
