My impression, based on their overall performance last season, is that [Brandon] Bass‘ best skill is scoring. 5.8 points in only 13.0 minutes per game last year, on a career-best 51.1% …

Sunday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “So, what will the Orlando Magic do now that they’ve retained J.J.

Tania Ganguli of the Orlando Sentinel: “That window of opportunity for winning a championship hasn’t closed yet, as far as the Orlando Magic are concerned and it’s part of the reason they chose to keep J.J.
