Sneak Preview: Miami Heat at Orlando Magic

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Surprise, ahem, is in the voice of the Heat these days. Now that their force field of arrogance has been shattered, the Heat wobble into Amway Center at a ho-hum 8-6, misfiring on offense and missing some spare parts (Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller). All their woes place a ton of pressure on …

Superman’s Rise to New Heights

Photo by Fernando Medina While Chris Paul is reminding everyone why he’s the best point guard in the NBA, there’s another player that’s doing similar conversion tactics. His name is Dwight Howard.

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Dwight Howard is 6-for-10 on mid-range jumpers this season, a promising statistic for the future of his offensive game. After making more than half of his jumpers during the preseason, it’s looking more and more like it’s a real part of his game. Howard himself is tired of talking about …

Where Do the Orlando Magic Stand As of Today?

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 …

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. […] Remember the summer of 2000, when the [Orlando] Magic boldly toyed with signing their own Big Three — Tim Duncan, Grant Hill …
