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. That is, the features are fantastic–there’s an MVP candidate playing out of his …

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 …

Recap: Boston Celtics 91, Orlando Magic 80

BOX SCORE The Boston Celtics were able to defeat the Orlando Magic by the score of 91-80, further proving the notion that there’s a team from the state of Florida that doesn’t deserve to be considered an elite team and championship contender.

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “It would be tempting to attribute the Orlando Magic‘s 103-96 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Monday night to midseason doldrums. Even the best NBA teams suffer two or three embarrassing losses at home. It happens. But perhaps the loss revealed larger problems that must be addressed before the postseason …

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “When the Orlando Magic traded for Gilbert Arenas, many wondered how long it would be until Arenas took the starting point guard position away from Jameer Nelson. Turns out, Nelson’s play is putting that debate to rest. Nelson is quietly putting together the best all-around season of his career, meshing …

The last time the Magic had a double-digit winning streak in the franchise’s 22 years of existence? Never. Needless to say, a little history is at stake. Before Orlando plays later this evening, …

Monday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “If Brandon Bass misses any action because of a possible knee injury — and it’s still possible he’ll miss no time — the Magic will possess just two true big men: Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson. Malik Allen is still injured, and Earl Clark is more of a combo forward than a …
