Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images It’s time to start thinking about Chicago differently. They are no longer a team that will be good someday when they get the right pieces together.

Sneak Preview: Orlando Magic at Miami Heat

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Dwight’s practically invisible. His numbers have grown to ridiculous sizes lately, but you hear little chatter about his MVP candidacy. If it’s not LeBron James leading the conversation, it’s Derrick Rose. Or vice-versa. As a voter, I say [Dwight] Howard has joined them in the stretch run. He’s on the red …

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 …

Getting a grip on the Magic’s future

Photo by Fernando Medina If I pay a whole lot of attention to what’s been said and written recently, joining the MBN community right now is sort of like moving into a mansion that was just built on an active fault line.

Thursday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “All 13 players on the Magic roster attended the team meeting. Point guard Jameer Nelson, who was not the subject of any trade rumors, was asked if it would be a relief if no one was traded before the deadline arrived. ‘It probably would be a relief for a …

Dwight Howard’s star shines bright at All-Star weekend

Jesse D. Garrabrant, NBAE/Getty Images Via the Orlando Magic: For those that normally don’t get the opportunity to watch Dwight Howard on a regular basis, the 2011 All-Star Game was another inimitable showcase for NBA enthusiasts across the world.

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 …
