Sneak Preview: Orlando Magic at Denver Nuggets

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Stan Van Gundy doesn’t expect the Orlando Magic to rank near the top of the league in fastbreak points, but the current state of affairs is, in his words, “absurd.” And that’s being charitable. Orlando entered Monday ranked dead last in the NBA in fastbreak points by a shocking margin. The Magic average …

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Word is that teams have inquired about point guard Chauncey Billups, and nobody on the planet can be surprised. If, or when, Carmelo Anthony goes in a trade, why keep Billups around? The Nuggets will be in official rebuilding mode once Melo walks. The [Orlando] Magic have pieces to …

The Clock is Ticking for the Orlando Magic

Via George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel: The Orlando Magic are going to win a bunch of games this season. My guesstimate is that the bar starts at 50 and shoots up from there.

Via John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com: Will Anthony and Paul be traded and swing the balance of power in the NBA? How bad does Anthony want out of Denver? The franchise has been trying to get him to sign a $66 million extension for months and he’s turned his nose up at it. But I give ‘Melo …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Actually, the Heat ought to be on the [Orlando] Magic‘s mind 24/7, sun up, sun down. They should embrace them. [Quentin] Richardson is not alone, as Magic players are already tired and/or agitated when asked about South Florida’s can’t-miss dream team. Agitated a month before the real season begins? …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel: “Seriously? Shaq wants us to believe he is rooting for the Magic and the City of Orlando to win a championship? That’s funny because two years ago when the [Orlando] Magic were playing the Lakers in the finals, Shaq tweeted that he was rooting for Kobe and the Lakers. …
