Ben Q. Rock of Orlando Pinstriped Post: Finding am empirical way to evaluate NBA team chemistry may seem an impossible task, but Numeranda may be onto something with its latest post (via Basketball Reference, whose own post on the subject brought this one to my attention) using Adjusted Plus-Minus statistics to evaluate the “chemistry” of a given five-man …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “For the moment at least, Matt Barnes remains a free agent. As we’ve noted before, the Orlando Magic and the Toronto Raptors cannot execute a sign-and-trade deal that would pay Barnes a first-year salary anywhere close to $4.5 million. On their own, the Raptors don’t have the cap room and no …

Monday’s Magic Word

J.J. Redick: “I’d be lying to say that I don’t want to start at some point. I’m sure every NBA player feels that way. I value my role on this team, and obviously the [Orlando] Magic value my role on this team. I take a lot of pride in contributing. We won 59 games last …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel: “All of these are ancillary moves in the big-picture scheme of Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, [Rashard] Lewis and [Vince] Carter. They are the nucleus of the Magic roster that has to wrestle with the James Gang in South Florida. You can’t rip [Otis] Smith because James bolted for Miami. Smith put together …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “The [Orlando] Magic on Thursday brought aboard Chris Duhon, a veritable minnow on the free-agent market, while the largest, meanest shark circled all around them. And that meant only one thing. They’re going to need a bigger budget. The Magic’s grand plan looked pretty good until it turned out that a prime-time …
