    I guess Jeff isn't seeing the same thing that we all see every game so I thought I'd help him out. Dear Jeff, Vuc hasn't been injured and he still sucks on D. We are getting killed in the paint! By the way nice FA signing on Simmons. Dear Jeff, Biz has hands of stone. Please tell coach to stop running plays where he gets the ball at the top of the key. By the way nice signing on Speights. Dear Jeff, Fournier and Vuc play buddy ball and are holding back the development of our only real star. Please trade them. By the way, AA was a nice signing as a veteran presence in the locker room. P.S. Marios still sucks too. Trade him as well. Dear Jeff, Go out on the court and take a few 3 point shots wearing a baseball cap with no cardboard in the bill. If you can see the rim let us know. Just sayin'.

    Basically, my hypothesis is we could trade vucevic for a point guard and we'd be fine

    Relax. This is all part of our plan to get down really big so that the starters get "mad" and make a big comeback in the second half that only falls short by 10 or so.

    The magic have lost since the beginning of the season four starters for ten games or more plus our productive first round pick for over a month and our back up pg for multiple games. What other team in the league has had to go through this? we can all be great at hindsight. But a lot of us were not fans of Harris and although some wanted to keep oladipo he was not as productive as Evan at the time we traded him at similar ages. Last year Vic was even worse at okc. He went back to his college area where he was treated like a god and his ego was boosted to a new level and his game also. Would that have happened here? Who knows! we all should be thrilled at AG's improvement and Isaac's possibilities. That is something to build around. We do have assets to move and get a more athletic balanced team. Be patient. I know it sux!!! I have been a fan since nick Anderson was drafted. So I am extremely knowledgeable of the disappointment this team can give. But I have learned to look for the bright spots. And right now I believe we have a player on the precipice of becoming a great player and one who has all the skills to join him. I will revel in that. I hope you all will to. Go Magic!

    The only thing missing in Mario is his confidence. It's been destroyed here I am not sure he ever had it but it sure has not been enhanced by any of our coaches. But a coach has to show confidence In some players by letting them make mistakes and not yanking them. Mario seems to have never gotten that opportunity here, I hope maybe one day he will find it in himself or finds a coach who will.

    He's really not. He just decides to be 25% of the time. The other 75% he causes huge issues that makes him unplayable. Nobody who is against vucevic disagrees with his peak level performance. He's objectively won games for us. But there's 1. A level of consistency that he doesn't show to be a starter 2. An attitude problem he shows that's detrimental to the overall success oid the team 3. A fatal flaw (interior defense) that we can't hide.

    I've done some math! I think we should trade vuc and Fournier for deandre Jordan even if it costs us, say, a top 8 protected first round pick. BUT WHAT IF HE LEAVES THIS SUMMER? Well, that's the math. We could make a trade like vuc and Fournier for dj and Wes Johnson and if Jordan leaves we'd be able to manufacture $30 million in cap space and a Augustin - Simmons -Isaac - Gordon - biyombo ross iwundu Wesley Johnson 8 man rotation.

    "Guys have to be able to accept constructive criticism and transfer that onto the court and do what’s best for this team," Simmons said. "You can do as much talking as you want to, but if you don’t physically do something about it yourself then we’re just doing a bunch of talking and barking for no reason. " J. Simmons for nba.com

    Time to blow it up. This isnt working and we are doomed to be stuck in the 8-12 slot for years and years. The rebuild was a failure. We missed the top players every single time. Its ok.. just acknowledge that and stop trying to "win now." We can't. Trade everyone now while they still have value.

    Seriously, people need to stop with the Mario Hezonja "maybe he's going to suddenly be an NBA player" garbage. I was a big fan of him on Draft night, too, but he's shown pretty clearly that he's terrible. His best season was his rookie season, and that was very bad for a 5th pick. The man has a single-digit AST% with a TO% at nearly 20. His PER is in the single digits. He has yet to prove he has one viable NBA skill; he can't dribble, is a timid and inconsistent shooter, seems genuinely mystified by very concept of team defense, and seems to be getting slower and less athletic already at age 22. He is the least mentally stable player on a team of mental midgets. We need to accept that he's awful and move on.

    Unfortunately it was predictable when the new management came in and said essentially they wanted another whole season to evaluate what we had. Those of us who watched the last few seasons, and especially last season, didn't want to see any more of it, and were not too happy about that decision. And part of that decision involved trading away multiple draft picks for rookies who look like they're doing well this year, in order not to cause too much disruption to the current roster. This is the result of those choices.

    I think it is. I just don't see all of a sudden guys coming back and just start winning. I'm calling it. Season died 12/14/17 at 7:47AM.

    Henny was doing great until he started getting micromanaged. That's why I have nothing against Hennigan. He was just severely unlucky. The micro management along with the not losing out enough for REAL draft acquisitions screwed him over. The oladipo trade was a WIN NOW move to me due to the pressure our management and organization put on him to keep his job that he was going to lose anyway. I'm truly starting to believe our problem is management and ownership more than anything now. I can even extend this to the Van Gundy drama in which they placed Howard's priority in front of Van Gundy's priority which ultimately led to his axing. Then Otis Smith started trading assets for his best friends. Now we can't keep a coach for more than 3 years. The Magic players we put on court are skittish deer. The Organization has built up a reputation of starting decent then falling apart 25% of the way through the season. The culture here is severely....severely damaged. Its critical...the Magic are in a coma. Some people blame Hennigan for the culture he instilled here. You can say that's most likely the damage he caused but it's not only up to the GM to instill the culture.

    Important things you got right.... If we draft a point guard we need a bridge. I think not having a healthy, decent back-up right after we drafted Elfrid caused most of our problems. Just because we screwed up and let go of Harris and Oladipo too early doesn't mean we need to keep Elfrid.

    I think the sound effects are just to childlike and annoying. I don't see how the players can concentrate with the ray gun, the one that goes faster and faster as the players run down court. etc. When I watch Cleveland, Golden State, LA, New York, I hear more music not like Amway its like nintentdo, starwars, just constant noise. I think it hurts player performance and is embarrassing to them.

    I'm done with Fournier. His attitude is toxic to a team. He should've given AG props. He didn't criticize Vuch's 41 point game. Forget that. Ship buddy ball out of here and let's build around AG.

    I have to disagree. With that said I'm fine with Fournier on this team. I am not fine with his poor body language and underlying comments during interviews when things don't go as he deems fit.

    I think it's really hard to compare a guy like Isaac. The NBA body and skill set has changed so much the last 10 years that there may be few if any former players that equate to modern day Isaac if he reaches his potential. Too hard for me to project.

    Joel Embiid had 46 points (14-of-20), 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks against the Lakers. Needless to say, it's the first 46-15-7-7 game ever recorded.
