For the Orlando Magic, It’s a Wait-and-See Approach

Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images Via Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel: The [Orlando] Magic have absolutely no shot at competing with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat. And neither does anybody else (except maybe the Lakers). That’s not me talking;  that’s Jeff Van Gundy, brother of Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Ben Q. Rock of Orlando Pinstriped Post: It’s hard to draw any conclusions about how they’ll play together from such a small sample size. My impression, based on their overall performance last season, is that [Brandon] Bass‘ best skill is scoring. 5.8 points in only 13.0 minutes per game last year, on a career-best 51.1% …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Ben Q. Rock of Orlando Pinstriped Post: “The Orlando Magic have drawn attention for their three-point-oriented offense under head coach Stan Van Gundy since he took over in 2007, and for good reason.
