    Quick question. Before, the mobile version of the forum would quick jump to the first unread post in a given thread. Now it only goes to whatever page you select. Is there a way to get back to how it was? Makes keeping up on convos a lot easier if I miss some things, especially once the season is under way.

    I'm stupidly hyped about this season and I can't tell if that's a good thing or if I've just forgotten all the lessons learned over the past 5 years.

    I'm scared I'm believing the AG hype. I'm seriously tempted to reach for him in the early rounds of our fantasy draft tonight.

    On Thursday, Gordon said he’s not concerned about his own contract situation. “That’s not why I play the game,” Gordon said. “I trust Jeff Weltman and John Hammond to make the right decision, and I’m going to continue to play my game and continue to help my team get wins and improve as a basketball player. They see how hard I work. They see how far my game has come. I’m only 22. My game is going to continue to improve. There’s still no ceiling for me. I’m looking to be the best in the NBA at some point in my career.”

    Gordon is currently shooting 44.4% from 3 this preseason. Man, if he could just shoot 34% from 3 this year that would make such a difference.

    I enjoy watching preseason games and wish the Magic would broadcast them. Obviously we are all anxiously awaiting the regular season but to say preseason games are meaningless is absurd. We have a few players fighting to make this team and this may be the most important time in their professional career. I'm really hoping we find a way to keep Khem Birch.

    We could've had Winslow geez. Just kidding he looks even worse if that's possible. So much for developing a shot. Kinda like iwundu but we didn't waste a top ten pick on him. I am sick of hearing that maybe this or that guy can become a good shooter in the nba. This is Extremely rare and just shouldn't be seriously considered plausible.

    One of the few articles I've read that actually likes the direction we're headed. https://www.detroitbadboys.com/2017/10/6/16347458/orlando-magic-preview-2018-nba-playoff-competitors-orlando-magic-might-be-finally-on-the-right-track

    With what we know of Biz's hands, its fairly likely he swung and missed

    Can I give up my own team for this one lol? That's a ridiculous team. At least some of those guys will be available in the draft. Still can't believe I drafted Giannis my first year in the league and didn't keep him :(

    Plus a good teammate and a solid vet presence who has seen it all. As my favorite player during the Dwight years, I'd love to bring him back and see him retire here.

    There is virtually no measurement that suggests DJ or Mack are better than Jameer right now. He and DJ are both bad defenders at this point, but his offense was waaaay more efficient last year, not only as a shooter, but as a ball-handler/distributor, and that is going against starters more often. Mack is much better on D than either, but he's not a good offensive player, as he can't really shoot well enough and he's a turnover machine. I'll agree that Payton is objectively a better player by now, but Jameer would see 20min per night as his backup on this team. Easily.

    I don't see how triple doubles show that he made players around him better, and I am a Payton believer.
  19. 1 point
    You seriously believe that? Wow. If so, it just shows how much people really underestimate what Payton can do for this team and for this specific roster around him. Management has seen and accepted what he is, and is moving towards giving him and Gordon keys to the kingdom. Payton will show his worth this year. Maybe not in stats. But in wins. And in how he makes everyone else around him better. I have a prediction. I predict that before he retires Payton will beat the record for most assists in a game that was made by a former Orlando Magic player. Watch. I hope he does it this year.

    Payton is clearly better at this moment in time jameer probably wouldn't see any playing time, even with Augustine still here

    we completely changed our entire offensive and defensive philosophies. The team plays completely different. The entire team played fantastic defense in the preseason.

    Love how vocal Simmons is. He really is in the ear of players if things are dropping off. And Biz hitting a mid range fadeaway J over Jeff Green earlier on has made my whole night already :)

    Its not that they're not likely to sign extensions. It's that the two sides are not close enough on a deal (maybe not even past the initial inquiries) so a deal doesn't seem likely at all. If no deal the magic just wait until next summer where both guys will be restricted free agents allowing us to match whatever they're offered

    Deadline is Monday at 6pm. I'd pay him 4/88 or 5/110.

    you hope we can offer Gordon the max extension?

    I wish. Nothing would please me more than to see BB become an consistent contributor and eliminate Vuc from the SL. Not holding my breath but who knows? Trade him and Fournier for someone good. Kyrie looked ready to carry Boston.

    Totally agree. Second game of a preseason back to back is hardly worth losing sleep for.

    DJ augustin pg of the future? 13 ppg in 16 mpg on 54/47/100 shooting I'm joking incase this wasn't evident.

    I would say it's a problem that our highly-touted 5th overall pick now has a bar of "slightly more impactful than laying down at midcourt" to describe his "success".

    Yes my friend, I can only see the risk, we all have been waiting for the reward, sadly he may just be in the wrong system here, we expect far to much!

    I'm back! Managed to find when Dan Savage and I went back and forth on Twitter about changing my password in 2014. And luckily, it still works without issue. - - - Thanks to Mauro for all the hard work this past week! Will start updating the league and running through my email today to catch things up. I say we give Stu through the weekend to maintain his team... BUT I don't mind finding a replacement early for him at the ready before Monday in case he doesn't show, however.

    I'd take it. Not sure how to private message you however

    But that chicken tender basket is sooooo good. Hahaha. But seriously if Fournier has a contusion on his face we will know. And if this was a real story I don't see how someone is not traded. Arguments are fine but if punches were thrown then that's serious.

    I wish we could just cut Bismack Biyombo and eat all that salary like Gilbert Arenas.

    Bump, in case this was missed and it's possible to change.

    Seriously we should make our starting unit decided by the results of the first preseason game. "Rolls eyes"

    That's right on. We have a bunch of good to decent role players. It's either hope one or more can turn themselves into at least borderline stars or trade for one or more. With this new front office if this group craters out of the gate I could see some big moves happening starting in December when players that were signed this offseason can be traded.

    Russ signed that extension on KD'S birthday, LOL.

    Yes, we have a deep lineup but it's full of role players. I know hope springs eternal, especially at this time of year, but I suggest everyone keep their expectations under control. Whether Vuch or Biyombo is the starting center, that is still at best a mediocre lineup. Yes, it could be better than that if certain players take major steps forward, and that could happen, but I wouldn't count on it.

    I hope Vuc is traded. With the bigs we have I think it's inevitable

    Our roster is the deepest since Dwight left, but the starting lineup is still the same old BS, with Fournier-Vucevic buddy ball hamstringing our play. Just wait and see

    Finally! Good to see you guys back after all this craziness going on in the world. Hope you guys and families are all safe and sound. Cant wait for the Magic training season to finally start!

    2001 Lakers were the same. They faced adversity in 2002 then lost in the second round in 2003. Just enjoy perfect basketball for a season because it doesn't make sense to lament a future that probably won't go as expected.

    Celtics coming back. If they win the series, I'm confirmed psychic. Then people will give me money to make **** up about them.
