Monday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade all pooling their talents is unseemly or just unfair … unless they do it in your town, of course.

Recap: Orlando Magic 102, Atlanta Hawks 73

BOX SCORE The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Atlanta Hawks have a new head coach and a new philosophy on offense, but none it mattered.

Classy Move by Stan Van Gundy; Apologizes to Fans

Via Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: Stan Van Gundy, how could you? How could you not pencil in a single [Orlando] Magic starter Thursday night?
