    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 :(

    Crazy news about Portis, he's a huge talent but I really wonder what you do with that... also very unfortunate on the Hayward situation, New everything for him and first few minutes gets a more than likely season ending injury... on a positive note, I really like the basketball textured BG, and cannot wait for tomorrow nights game!

    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.

    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.

    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

    I'd love to lock AG up now. But if were not certain he's worth the max then we should wait. Rather give him the max (or not) next summer when we're certain he's worth it (or not) than wind up in a Gordon Hayward situation where you got a team friendly deal but with the caveat you might lose a max player a year earlier than you should.

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

    I've been waiting for a guy like this since Matt Barnes...His grit outweighs the few games he may lose for us this year.

    yeah. biggest improvement is he's just getting the ball and going. taking the jumper. getting to the spot he wants with efficient dribbles. no standing there and sizing people up and showing off his handles while he dances with the ball for 4 seconds before taking a contested midrange jumper. Just getting the ball and making his time with it mean something.

    you hope we can offer Gordon the max extension?

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

    Josh Jackson, who has a completely broken shot, is shooting 6/9 from 3 in three games this preseason.

    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".

    I really didn't like the way we played as a team. I don't know if Vogel is even calling plays. If we're showcasing DJ great but that was one of the most unimpressive 24 points ever by DJ. And Vuch, ugh. Just ship him out. Play Birch.

    I should have clarified that it is meaningless as it relates to how our season will be. It is great to see new/different faces and ponder their potential impact. The minutes played and output by so-called designated players have no bearing on what to expect when it counts is all. I agree with the fandom of the sport part though.

    Birch now has 7 blocks in about 25 minutes. How can he not make the team?

    Ross's nickname in Toronto was "Coin Toss Ross" as you never knew what you were going to get on a given night. Some nights he'd drop 18-20 and couldn't miss from the arc. Other games you get what we saw Monday night...

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

    I don't have a problem with it. Rest is important and especially as guys get older, finding that space to heal up is important over a long season. Redick said something similar awhile ago, how early on he didn't rest much in the offseason and it had an effect on him when he didn't have the energy midway through the season because he didn't give his body time to adjust.

    That's why I'd do this: Biyombo - Gordon - Ross - Fournier - Payton as SL I'd put Vuc as the one man wrecking scoring machine in the second unit. He'd win 6th man of the year because though he is starter quality, he's better for us off the bench, even if just to separate him from his loverboy Fournier.

    See, the funny thing is, he did take a big step forward. Unfortunately, he was still not very good. Even ignoring the rest of the season when he was benched for possibly the worst backup PG in the NBA last year, he's still - at best - among the bottom 10 starting PGs in the league, and that's counting rookies. His big jump was from obvious garbage to 'maybe he should start since our other option is DJ Augustin.' He still has to make another big jump to be considered even an average starting PG. But yeah, sure, let's start a bandwagon and use the two-month best numbers of his career - immediately following him playing so poorly the previous four months that he was benched for DJ Augustin - to hold to the hope that maybe he'll be decent. Nevermind that his entire career is riddled with highs and lows. Damnit, this last high was legit! He's GREAT!!! Everyone who questions this is of course an evil sith!!!

    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.
