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? Now I realize it was a preseason game and players need nights off. But all of them? No Dwight [Howard], Vince [Carter], Jameer [Nelson], Rashard [Lewis] or [Quentin Richardson] …

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Jason Williams expects to reach a milestone Wednesday. He believes he’ll run for the first time since he underwent a knee operation on Sept. 30. This day couldn’t have arrived soon enough for Williams.

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “His grandmother bought him a Nerf ball game when he was a toddler. He slept with a basketball by his pillow as he got older. No wonder he has a nose for grabbing a rebound and a shooting eye to die for. And it’s no surprise that he tossed in a …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “It was a pretty basic off-day practice for the Orlando Magic on Thursday. They worked on defending cuts – which was a problem in the first half against Houston – and containing pick-and-rolls for much of the practice. There was a lot of full-court work. And offensively, they worked …

A Quick Take on Marcin Gortat’s Role With the Orlando Magic

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Melissa Muñoz will never forget the time the world’s best center visited this tiny city of 7,322 people near the Mexico border. Wearing a black T-shirt emblazoned with Dwight Howard‘s face, the 16-year-old high-school student leaned over the boards behind the Orlando Magic bench during pregame warmups. [...] Howard walked over, and …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Former [Orlando] Magic shooting guard Courtney Lee feels right at home with the Houston Rockets. Going from a team that went 12-70 last season to a playoff contender would make anybody feel happy. That’s the case with Lee, who was sent from the New Jersey Nets to the Rockets in August …

Friday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “While the celebration of the new place was going on up the street, the old place was eerily quiet. It was sunny and green and clean outside, but dark and desolate and dusty inside. And nearly abandoned. Except for a skeletal crew of workers, there was no sign of …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Actually, the Heat ought to be on the [Orlando] Magic‘s mind 24/7, sun up, sun down. They should embrace them. [Quentin] Richardson is not alone, as Magic players are already tired and/or agitated when asked about South Florida’s can’t-miss dream team. Agitated a month before the real season begins? …
