Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com: “There are a lot of players in the league that would be happy to be in Marcin Gortat’s shoes. He’s played an integral role on a team that’s reached the Eastern Conference Finals in two straight seasons. He’s won over the hearts of fans throughout Orlando and in his home country of …

Sunday’s Magic Word

Ben Q. Rock of Orlando Pinstriped Post: “In an Orlando Magic season which featured uneven or unimpressive performances from All-Stars Jameer Nelson, Rashard Lewis, and Vince Carter, J.J. Redick‘s development into one of the league’s most reliable reserves came as a welcome surprise, but it shouldn’t have. Not to play the “I told you so” card, …

Friday’s Magic Word

Ben Q. Rock of Orlando Pinstriped Post: “Again, [Stan] Van Gundy has come under fire for his offense, which I don’t understand. Surrounding Howard with three-point shooters makes sense, and Howard’s about the last guy in the league who needs “protection” from a “true” power forward. No, Lewis is the right fit at that position. …

Evaluating Jameer Nelson’s Offense in the Playoffs

Tuesday’s Magic Word

John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com: “[J.J.] Redick just enjoyed the best season of his four-year NBA career and proved himself in the playoffs to be a clutch, gritty competitor. He torched the Celtics for 12- and 14-point games in the [Orlando] Magic’s two wins in the East Finals, showing off his growth as a player and guts …

Monday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Matt Barnes will test the free-agent market this summer. Barnes said minutes ago that he will not exercise his player option for the 2010-11 season, but he added that he hopes to return to the Orlando Magic. ‘As for me and my contract situation, I’m going to opt out,’ Barnes told reporters …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Ben Q. Rock of Orlando Pinstriped Post: “So [Vince Carter is] taking a beating, and the media are exploiting the usual talking points about him: he’s soft, he’s not clutch, he’s timid, he doesn’t have a “killer instinct.” And, well, yeah, there’s truth to some of that, insofar as he’s having a pretty terrible series, shooting …

Second Look: Orlando Magic 113, Boston Celtics 92

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Ever since laying a giant egg and having their hearts questioned after a Game 6 debacle, the [Orlando] Magic have played like a team that reached the NBA Finals last season and won 59 games this season. Like in Game 4, the Magic relied on cornerstones [Dwight] Howard and point …
