    I hope Lebron fails miserably as a Laker

    Yeah coz it was Devos family’s fault for Shaq turning down more money from the Magic (which was offered) and for D12 being a douche bag. The Magic have been committed to being a classy and philanthropic organization, and they are willing to spend on players, build state of the art arena, and if not for bad luck (Nick Anderson free throws and early Jameer return) we may have been more competitive. We may not be perfect but we’ve given our heart to this organization and are still committed to doing so by bringing top notch management that has helped both Toronto and Milwaukee.

    I’m not going to get in to this too much, mainly because it’s a Magic board not a politics board, but if you consider equality and the fact that black lives actually do matter “filth” and have a problem with black people having a voice in America, then I’m pretty sure the NBA doesn’t want you as a fan anyway.

    Nice to be back here. Been a while.. I'm from Estonia. This guy can ball, in Estonia he played in Kalev/Cramo and in VTB United League, they batteled strong teams from Russia (CSKA, Himki, Zenith and so) He played very well against them. I'm pretty excited to see him play in summer league.

    Some people can’t be pleased and apparently don’t understand you don’t fix a bottom feeder trash team in 1 trade or 1 draft. Trust the process. Let it happen. This move made us slightly better and saved us a little money. Idk why people are complaining. It’s just a little move with little risk with possibly a little reward. Who cares? This isn’t gonna be the last move we make before the season starts. R-E-L-A-X

    I understand the passion people bring to these discussions, and I'm not a moderator, but I'd prefer people leave the politics out of this part of the forum.

    You would think someone having the worst shooting season of his career would focus on improving his shot instead of spending the next 2-3 weeks practicing dunks.

    I'm just going to be blunt and say anyone advocating a Westbrook trade at this point just doesn't know anything about basketball. I get that people are unhappy with Vucevic--I guarantee you'll be even more unhappy when Westbrook is on our team and needs to be paid 46 million dollars at age 35.

    The Gordon hater is here—to eat crow. Gordon has been the best player on our team this series and the 1 guy whose gone 110% on both ends every game. If only other players were elevating their playoff play on the big stage like he’s been doing. Oh well.

    We should rest Grant for the rest of the season.

    Have you all hit your heads recently? After years of unanimous agreement that Vooch needs to go, you’re now comfortable rebuilding around him? Last few years with no viable replacement on the roster: “TRADE HIM, GUY SUCKS. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.” This year after just drafting his obvious, high-ceiling replacement: “Well let’s not get too hasty here... I mean the guy has been playing pretty well.” Does it not alarm some of you that even in Vooch’s “good” year, we’re still 20-28 in the weakest Eastern Conference in recent memory? What part of his Renaissance has translated to anything meaningful results-wise?

    I legitimately might cry if we get kemba. Family is all from Connecticut. Most of my best sports memories are from UConn games. Some of my last memories of my Dad are excitedly talking about kemba. He died from terminal cancer in his early 50s a few days before kembas big East tournament run. My mom is convinced his death had some karmic sway over that championship run. Kemba is as close to a holy figure you can get in my family.

    I feel like calling either of them cancers is a bit to much. These aren’t bad guys embarrassing the franchise off the court getting suspended and what not. I think Vuch is a baby. I don’t really have a problem with Evan. I always liked him more than most. I’m just ready for a change. He’s the best natural scorer on this team so if we lose him we better bring some offense back. Vuch is a baby but he was happy to resign with Orlando when he could have left. He’s been a good guy in the community and always speaks highly of Orlando. Don’t get me wrong I’m ready to move on for sure—but when we trade him I think it would be entirely unfair to view his time here as a cancer.

    HI I was at the game last night. I have not looked at box score or stats so time of this may not hold up under scrutiny but this is how I felt there. A few observations: 1) Fans are very late arriving which is disappointing for the start of the game. Started with about 20% seats full 80% by start of 3rd. (no masks required) 2) As has been noted, starting 5 play extremely well. We get into trouble when we break the line up. But those 5 dont play as well when they return. Part of that may be that unless I missed something. Those 5 dont ever play together again. There is always a starting 4 plus a bench player. (For example, I dont remember Moe and Wendell playing together after we broke.) They could have and I missed it , but it is something that stood out to me. 3) Speaking of Moe, he is playing very well and very hard, but when they sit him down he looks completely gassed. Dont know if he is still struggling with conditioning or that is just who he is always going to be. 4) Franz was amazing. Seeming to always be in the right place. 5) Suggs struggled. He also seemed to always be in the right place, but often did not execute. His ability to see the game when he does not have the ball is very good. He made some great passes. But it seems when he gets the idea to score, he loses his vision and drives into very bad situations, or misses too many open shots. Plus many turn overs, his handle is not great. From what I see, right now, he is not a good point guard. (yes I know rookie first year and all... not calling him a bust, I guess I just expected a more "Ready for prime time" player) 6) Cole very often plays for himself, ignoring everyone else. Last night his shot was falling, so he is not the reason that we lost. But I saw him take too many difficult shots when others were open for easier ones. 7) Harris and hampton were space fillers. Moe Wagner was serviceable , though not as good as last game. 8) I dont think I saw iggy or robin in at all 9) A lot has been said negatively about T-Ross and his attitude on the court. I saw quite the opposite. He seemed to be taking a leadership role. Always looking around. Checking guys positions, talking.. etc And he seems to be being used in a more all around role. He is not just bombing for three and hoping to score or get fouled. I had no issue at all with him last night. 10) It was good to see J.I., Chuma, and MCW on the bench and cheering guys. But I was a little confused with Fultz. He was there. And came in with the guys on every time out. And I am sure he was cheering, though I never noticed. But he did not sit on the bench. He stood against the hockey dasher. Not a big deal, but seemed odd if he wants to be one of the leaders of this team. Ok thats it On to Toronto

    This year he is in the bottom quartile, with a 40% FG% when posting up. Last year he was in the 50th percentile with a 49% FG% on post ups. In the 2018 season, he was again in the bottom quartile with a 40% FG% on post ups. In 2017, he just missed the bottom quartile, with a 44.6 FG%. 2016 was the only year he posted good numbers in the post, just squeezing into the top quartile (75.6 %tile), with a 50% FG%. While he has a variety of moves, the moves don't seem to create positive offensive production. He is not a good post player.

    Basketball reference has us at 38.5 wins, the 7 seed, and a 57.5% chance to make the playoffs. Think we need to really shoot for that 7 seed. There's not a series that we have a good chance to win but I think Milwaukee is the worst matchup for us. We handle Toronto really well because we're built to handle siakam, it doesn't really bother us to have Kawhi take Gordon out of the game, and I'm not as worried about Augustin and fournier defending Lowry and Green. Philly or Boston are definitely winnable. Philly with Simmons is easier to defend and they don't have the depth to kill us. Boston should just out talent us but we won the season series against them so maybe there's just something there. Milwaukee is the only series that I think is a definite 4 or 5 game series. The rest I think we can push to 6 or 7 if we play our best and maybe if the other team looks ahead we can steal one.
