    Now..we just need to draft another Oladipo. But when is the last time we had a top 3 pick? .......................Oladipo.

    I've been meaning to immortalize these words on the internet for a while... I think Aaron Gordon has a similar drive to Victor Oladipo and I think he will be an all-star in the next 3 years. I don't even know if he'll be in Orlando during that time, due to roster construction, but I think Henny was up to something when he wanted to draft work horses. I believe we need to give AG all the responsibility we can on offense, and for that to happen some guys might need to be moved.

    LOL, the owner is saying he is available and to contact him directly.

    The only way money is going to kill you (with the exception of injury) is if you have to give Gordon, Bamba, and Isaac near max deals. And if you're in the position where you have to choose between max contract players, what a great dilemma to have.

    I know there isn't much to talk about right now, but we're not getting Butler.

    Also I'm not sure we should be basing decisions on whether or not a guy can be the best player on a championship team. There's not a lot of those guys out there. Butler can be the best player on a team that wins the East and I think that's enough.

    I am sure they don‘t like his contract. Over 15m for 17 minutes, 6 pts and 4.5 reb.

    Rotoworld is good but sometimes they have a guy on the phone with terrible quality. https://art19.com/shows/rotoworld-fantasy-basketball They also have a fantastic page with every team's depth chart that is super useful (humorously, the page seems to be down) https://art19.com/shows/rotoworld-fantasy-basketball

    O'Connor has become a pretty damn good NBA writer if you ask me. Usually has very reasoned & in-touch takes. Reminds me somewhat of Lowe in that facet.

    Sorry for the slightly off topic question but what podcast if any would you guys recommended to get me ready for fantasy basketball this season. I have some brushing up to do before drafting starts.

    Finally! I love computers and hate computers. Had to do a full restore mid August and could not access my favorite site until today. Missed a month's worth of info. HP laptop and their help desk was a joke trying to fix it. At one point they had me take a screen picture and send it to them. Then said we give up and take it somewhere. I took out the battery and hit one button and the computer came right back up. Taken a month to fix everything. Thank God it is during the slowest part of the NBA season. Now I am back. Halleluyeh! Will take a while to catch up. Getting ready for training camp. Basketball Insiders preview pretty much has us as 4th (one guy had us third echoing Clifford's "why not us" motto) with lots of good for the future. Anyway time to get back to work reading posts.

    The site below ranks players by perimeter defense, interior defense, and total defense. Not surprising to see Augustine ranked the 34th worst and Fournier the 44th worst. Oladipo is ranked the best perimeter defender, and Jonathan Isaac ranked 13th in total defense in limited minutes. http://www.basketballanalyticsbook.com/2018/04/19/anthony-davis-rates-as-the-nbas-best-defender-in-2017-18/

    Hi, everyone! I'm "You're Fat, Pat!" (YFP for short). I used to eat, sleep, and drink this message board many moons ago. It was a huge part of my life and, as silly as it may sound to some, had grown to be like an additional family. We were, at one point, relatively small in number yet massive in our collective fanhood and we had a really great time! But, life eventually got in the way and my presence here and on other forums/sites dwindled. So, why am I here? Well, today I was led to my old Photobucket account. When I opened it, I was bombarded with all of these wacky old edits and signatures from my time on this board. In a lot of ways, it kinda tells the story of the Magic from about 2006-2010. I thought it would be kinda fun to share it with you. To any of the O.G.'s still perusing the site, I hope you all are doing well. To those who I do not know, thanks for being awesome, dedicated Magic fans. We will ascend into greatness again some day! :) - My very first signature on this site. Produced it in the 2006-2007 season prior to Vince Carter's 2007 free agency. Little did we all know that he actually WOULD join the team in 2010! - Instead, we signed this guy in 2007 and I welcomed him with my signature. - I thought this group would be the team that would lead us to glory...four out of five ain't bad! - I think this was after Dwight signed his first extension? I don't know. It's awful though...haha! - This was a big one...once upon a time, there was a very real possibility that the Magic would move away from Orlando if we didn't get a new arena (now the Amway Center). I'll never forget the relief that went through my body when the vote passed! - Some of the guys in this post were a joke, some were serious...but man, I genuinely thought we would win one with D12. :( - *shrugs* - One of my favorite players ever...Trevor Ariza! - Once upon a time, there was an article from Polish media about Marcin Gortat. When we translated it to English, we were referred to as the Orlando Warlocks. - Jameer and Turk went through a rough shooting stretch...hah. - Man, we loved Dwight once upon a time... - *shrugs again* - We got a little hostile during our showdown with Toronto during the 2008 playoffs... ;) - Fast forward to the 2009 playoffs... - Trophy for the Cavs... - After the Finals loss... - Then 2010... - Signature before each round... That's all I've got. Hard to believe this was 8-12 years ago! Hope this trip down memory lane was either educational or entertaining. And if I broke any rules by posting too many images, I apologize to the mods. :) Cheers, all. Go Magic.

    Yeah. I agree. AG is an interesting case in basketball development. If you take a skilled player with +athleticism and +size you'd expect that guy to become an all star caliber player if he's got an all star level commitment to improvement (like a third tier guy. DeRozan, oladipo, kemba.)

    I mean our real main problem is lack of top of the line talent. Hopefully one or more players can make the jump this year, but without some real top talent, we aren't really going anywhere.

    Never said I was. Just end of the bench guy or (in case of injury) guy. Or next trade filler. I’m sorry to say it but I think it’s another semi tank year. Just don’t see Isaac or bamba playing a lot of minutes. Their bodies need a lot of maturing. And counting on vuc and Evan has brought how many wins?

    I don’t see any reason to expect great improvement. In the past few years the Magic haven’t been worth watching after January. My benchmark for success this year is that there’s still some interest heading into March.

    Don’t worry, we’ve got Vuch to inspire them.

    39% is now good? What a low bar we have set. He is a good bench player and that is it. He will always show flashes and a hot streak now and then. But his stroke is really loose and will never be consistent.

    ML6 reference: Oh wow! ML6 revisited my post from 3 months ago to make a point that really is not important to be worthy of attention. First of all, news about this new school that LeBron had built surfaced recently. Secondly, the school is for 4th and 5th graders only. I have not read the specifics, but what we are looking at is a private or charter school. I don't think every 4th and 5th grader in Akron will be attending this school. Even if there are other charter schools in Akron, it will not be enough to serve or give a signicant number of kids the proper education and put them on the right track. What about the other kids in higher grades who need to get a fire lit under them so that they can be motivated in knowing that no matter what their situation is right now, there is hope. Those upper level students need help NOW. Perhaps, and I say Perhaps, it will not be too late for those kids to think about getting training or skills that would allow them is get a decent job, attend a community college or a technical school to get specialized training for a future career to keep them off the streets. I don't know if you know anything about Akron, Ohio where LeBron is from. Well I do know that it is like Cleveland, Ohio where I visited a relative who use to live there, and I have seen the poor conditions that a large population of blacks live in. I have seen the schools that these kids attend that are run down. I'm not saying that LeBron can or should save the world, but we are talking about a school for a small segment of students. As the other kids who are not being served in the city of Akron might say, . . ."WHAT ABOUT US"!? What About Us P!nk We are searchlights, we can see in the dark We are rockets, pointed up at the stars We are billions of beautiful hearts And you sold us down the river too far What about us? What about all the times you said you had the answers? What about us? What about all the broken happy ever afters? What about us? What about all the plans that ended in disaster? What about love? What about trust? What about us? We are problems that want to be solved We are children that need to be loved We were willin', we came when you called But, man, you fooled us, enough is enough, oh What about us? What about all the times you said you had the answers? What about us? What about all the broken happy ever afters? Oh, what about us? What about…

    WHAT ABOUT THE TEACHERS???????? I find it amazing that some of you people are giving all this praise to LeBron James for having a school built for 4th and 5th graders which will serve only a small population of students in Akron, Ohio. But not once have I seen a post thanking the hundreds of thousands of teachers in this country who spend countless hours in the classroom and outside the classroom, working toward the betterment of our young people. Teachers salaries are a drop in the bucket compared to what LeBron earns--and might I add, many of them have to work a second job to make ends meet--and yet many of them (including myself) use their pay to purchase supplies (outside of a budget) to pay for materials to use in the classroom. Many teachers work after hours, on weekends, and during the summer, attending workshops (and don't receive overtime pay) to enhance the knowledge of the subject matter in which they teach in order to bring their students up to speed and be able to use what they have learned in life. I remember a female teacher where I worked rode a bicycle to school every day because she could not afford a car. She also rode that bicycle to a part-time job after school. Teachers have to deal with more than learning styles, but also attitudes and poor behavior. I know! As I have mentioned before, I am a retired teacher. BTW: I wonder if the teachers who work at LeBron's school will see the benefits of LeBron's millions in their paycheck.

    ^^^This. I had not been on the TBN message boards for several weeks. Then on yesterday, Monday, I decided to check in to see if there was any news related to the Magic. I clicked on this thread, and what did I see? . .a member of this forum had quoted me from comments I made about LeBron 3 MONTHS AGO(April, 2018). It was ML6 who brought the subject up quoting me not once, but twice. But No, I was the one to get down voted several times for answering back. If this is not cyber bullying, I don't know what else to call it. Carry On!!!

    I don’t think Butler fits our timeline. He’s 29 going into 30s maybe another year or two of prime with our young core just starting to develop. If we could trade EF or Vucevic; fillers and a heavenly protected first then maybe especially if Kyrie wants to play with him, but I don’t see Kyrie leaving Boston and if that’s the case I would rather have Rozier for our core’s timeline.

    This is best case scenario for me only because I just don't see us really trying to get Butler. If we can attach ourselves as a third team in the trade and get something nice while dumping Vuc and or Fournier, I'm all for it.
