Rob Hennigan and trust

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images Don’t look now, but the grumbling and moaning over front office moves have ceased in Orlando, at least temporarily. Even throughout a laughable, disastrous season for the Magic, fans have generally voiced optimism, most aptly regarding the young pieces on the roster. This is a new look for …

Glen Davis’ future with the Magic

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images Back in my ill-advised pursuit of the Indie rock dream days, I was forced to make a huge decision when it came time to buy a new bass guitar. I mean, obviously I was getting a Fender, and I was pretty sure it would be a P-Bass, but …

Dwight’s return much ado about nothing

AP Photo/John Raoux It’s no secret that both fans and media tend to over-exaggerate, over-hype, and oversell events to create a more desirable vibe. Most recently, it was Dwight Howard’s return to Orlando as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, and only days after some controversial comments toward his former teammates. The media did …

Nikola Vucevic: the Magic’s big bargain

Photo by Issac Baldizon/NBAE via Getty Images When Bill Simmons wrote at Grantland last week that Nikola Vucevic has the 11th-best bargain contract in the NBA, he was not just whistling Dixie. Not only is Vucevic averaging a double-double (12.3 ppg and 11.4 rpg), he’s also shown the capacity to put up huge numbers (just …

Recap: Memphis Grizzlies 88, Orlando Magic 82

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE The fact that Orlando didn’t get blown out by the Grizzlies is a testament to a few things: interior defense, good spot-up shooting, and the reckless abandon by which their perimeter players attacked the hoop. You can’t put enough emphasis on the importance of scoring when …

The sky’s the limit in Orlando

Photo by Fernando Medina/Orlando Magic Probably the best part about being a fan of a team is living with the belief that it could be “the year” for your guys. I work in an office with 90 SEC graduates. During the fall, I hear a ton of rabble rousing and cocksure predictions about who the …

Recap: Los Angeles Clippers 86, Orlando Magic 76

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE It was a C-list type of night in Orlando and the Magic proved that, despite key injuries on both sides, they are capable of losing in almost any circumstance. Jameer Nelson was “the plan” for Orlando and that plan got squelched for the entire second half, leading the Magic to …

Recap: New York Knicks 113, Orlando Magic 97

Photo by Ray Amati/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE The Magic are great at having small successes, but still losing games. The interesting thing is that the small successes, just like the ways they end up losing games, change from night to night. On Wednesday, Orlando had no trouble scoring from the perimeter and did …

A midseason review on the Magic

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images The Magic’s season is now 44 games old and and while some characteristics of this team are starting to take focus, others are still a bit hazier. The Magic are somehow simultaneously exactly what we thought they’d be and not really anything like we thought they’d be. Results …

Recap: Orlando Magic 97, Indiana Pacers 86

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE Steals, points off turnovers, transition buckets, a ridiculously high three-point field goal percentage, getting a former All-Star into foul trouble. These are things that have been highly irregular for the Magic this season, but were key elements to their win against the Pacers. It all started …
