Earl Clark’s limitless potential on defense

Via Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: Four months ago, Earl Clark reached a troubling career crossroads. The Phoenix Suns declined to pick up their $2 million option to keep him for the 2011-12 season, an unconventional move that ensured Clark will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Two months ago, the Suns severed …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “What are the odds we see a technical foul when the Orlando Magic host the New York Knicks tonight? Pretty good, considering all the tech-magnets that’ll be suiting up for the Magic and Knicks. Orlando’s Dwight Howard and New York’s Amar’e Stoudemire are tied for the league lead in …

Friday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy has decided he’ll stick with the same quartet of Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Brandon Bass to start alongside center Dwight Howard for tonight’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. But that doesn’t mean Van Gundy will keep those players in the game, especially if they …

Monday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Funny, I don’t recall Stern coming to Carmelo’s defense. In fact, deep inside, part of him has to love this ‘Melo-to-Knicks and ‘Melo-to-Nets media scrum. Keeps the NBA in the news, you know. Didn’t Stern and his fellow owners create a landscape inwhich ‘Melo is using to his advantage? Doesn’t he …

Friday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “The season is winding down, meaning every game is big when you are chasing the leaders and jockeying for playoff positions. With 25 games left, the [Orlando] Magic are hunters instead of the hunted this season. Circle March 3 and 4 on your calendar. It’s likely a tell-tale back-to-back. …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Here’s Dwight Howard’s chance to win MVP. His best chance. Why? Because he can lead a Magic comeback in the stretch run — and don’t we love comeback stories? I mean, there’s really not an overwhelming MVP favorite to date. Let’s review: LeBron James, obviously. But then sometimes you …

Friday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “The relationship between a coach and an NBA superstar is not a simple one. The coach, by definition, is supposed to be the authority, the loudest voice in the organization and a leader to the team. But in many NBA cities, where a larger-than-life superstar plays basketball, the team’s …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “#FreeEarlClark. That’s the hashtag that’s taken over Twitter, blog comments, message boards and live chats since the Orlando Magic’s game against the Cavaliers on Dec. 28, when [Earl] Clark scored 12 points and showed Magic fans there might be some potential in the mostly forgotten piece of Orlando’s blockbuster trade with Phoenix. There’s always …
