Keeping Dwight Howard around

AP Photo/John Raoux Well, here we are. The Magic are winning, and there is no end in sight to the Dwight Howard saga. In some ways, this was the least likely scenario, as it sure seemed as if Orlando’s roster and Dwight’s disposition would make this season like getting a root canal. Such was my …

Magic Basketball Weekly: Hack-a-Dwight and Mark Jackson

AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez Every morning on my way to work I listen to this awful local radio show called Bob and the Showgram. I think every town has one of these shows, where some fat-sounding man alternately wheezes and yells into a microphone while slack-jawed cronies occasionally pipe in with nonsense. It’s racist, homophobic, …

The thing about Jameer Nelson

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images If you’ve followed Orlando’s season to this point, it’s been impossible to miss the coverage of Jameer Nelson’s slump. Certainly his poor play has been noticeable on the court, but even more striking has been the differences in reaction he inspires. Some observers look at Jameer and see a solid …

Magic Basketball Weekly: Sloths and the Nuggets

Sloths are my favorite animal. They have been for years. Science has shown them to be both the cutest and most bro-some of all God’s creatures. Let me hit you with some sloth facts: They grow moss on them, because they chill so hard. Sometimes, if their babies fall out of a tree or something, …

Dealing with an organizational identity crisis

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images Through the first six games of the season, the Magic have shown themselves to be a team of poles and contrasts. There have been stretches, like the comeback win over the Raptors or the second quarter in the loss against Detroit, when the Magic seem to have rediscovered …

A prayer for the NBA season

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images It’s about that time, y’all. The Magic have been in the middle of a media storm for a month now, and will have the focus all to themselves now that the Chris Paul saga has finally reached its end. What there is to say about this team — that is, …

The Magic’s bench needs to improve

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE I sat down with the task of writing about the Orlando player who most needs to redeem himself, but frankly, I just can’t do it. As far as the major players on the roster, there just isn’t much sense in talking about “redemption.” We know Dwight’s situation. We’ve covered the bejeezus …

Player to watch: Stephen Curry

Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images Magic Basketball previews the 2011-2012 NBA season with a look at the players we’re most excited to watch this year. When Eddy asked me to think of a player I was most excited to watch, my mind immediately went to every player on the Thunder roster. But — curses! — …

Stan Van Gundy and the future of the Magic

Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images Usually when a team realizes the axe is hanging over their current era, one of the first questions that circulates is about the coaching. So far, though, as perhaps you’ve noticed, the spotlight has been on Dwight Howard and almost nothing else. Perhaps this is because the Magic are in …
