Tuesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “What should Magic fans have in common with Jack Nicholson? They should be keeping a close eye on the L.A. Lakers. The Lakers remain winless after two games, stunningly losing to the Chicago Bulls and the Sacramento Kings to start the season. The Lakers used to toy with teams …

Friday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “There’s another who-dun-it that Coach Stan Van Gundy is trying to solve: Who will be the starting power forward this season — Anderson or Glen “Big Baby” Davis?

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Plenty of intrigue surrounds tonight’s Orlando Magic preseason finale, but the competition for spots on the season-opening Magic roster is not included in that mix.

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel: “Say what you will about the Magic, but one thing you can never say is they haven’t been willing to change and do what it takes to win.

Monday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Magic entered Sunday’s exhibition tired. After practices and scrimmages on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, the team held a one-hour, 50-minute shootaround Sunday morning at AmericanAirlines Arena. It would be tempting to blame Orlando’s atrocious second-half performance versus Miami on all of that work. But won’t the Magic face …

Dell Demps has advice for Otis Smith

Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images Via Sports Radio Interviews: “It’s funny I talked to the general manager, Otis Smith, and he’s a great guy.
