    In terms of building a legit team, the player we should be targeting with our money is Jaylen Brown. He'd fit beautifully next to Franz and Paulo.

    Excellent first half. Whether we make the play in or not, how great is it for team development to be playing meaningful games at the end of the season without being undermined by a big whispering campaign of hoping that we lose “for the tank”. Team needs to get in the habit of scratching and clawing for every single game.

    I wanted Jabari or trade down and get Shaedon. I am happy to say I was wrong. Paolo would be my pick now. How bout you CT? Or BJ? Let’s all deal with the present. What’s past is over.

    Very nice win …make no mistake NY was in playoff mode trying to win …impressed with Banchero hitting the crunch time 3 when it’s been a struggle all season for him …Cole with loads of energy tonight

    If you don’t think the lakers get preferential treatment then you have been living under a rock for 40 plus years.

    Sharpe got the start and minutes …Simons hurt …24 pts, 9 boards, 4 steals, 3 assists, 4-7 from three and only 1 turnover ..he was a big reason they beat the Jazz on the road …look out for this kid next year ….also has played every single game .

    I like Mo Wagner. I don't know why some fans don't want to keep him. He's a fighter.

    Dante and Brian showed on a screen before the game started that the Magic is one of 3 teams in the hunt. So I guess it's not over until the fat lady sings.

    He is the exact guy we should be looking at when we make our big move.

    Would’ve been nice to actually have picked up a point guard at the beginning of the season when Fultz was out and Cole was injured. Like I was screaming for. Playoffs would have definitely been in the cards right now. I will forever blame management for this failure!!!

    Is it ok that I understand and agree with everything said above about Fultz ( including his limitations ) and still dont want to move on from him for an expensive FVV?

    This isn't the bet statement I saw this morning that you made …this is another one lol …not a secret CT about there being pages and pages of you debating anybody against or voicing opposition to drafting Chet.

    Relevant. But also the Magic top 5 is crazy. The Paolo effect I think.

    I'm normally not a conspiracy theorist in the NBA, but Monty Williams just went off on how the Lakers got 46 free throws compared to 20 for the Suns. This, of course, on the heels of the Magic game that saw Austin Reaves get more FT than the entire Magic team. I'd like to believe in the integrity of the game's officiating, but this kind of situation makes me ponder.

    We need to draft 2 guys that can already shoot.

    5. THE BOL-LER-COASTER!!!! The Bol Bol Most Improved Player campaign capsized in early January, when the Orlando Magic yanked him from the starting lineup -- mothballing the weird, ultra-big trio of Bol, Paolo Banchero, and Wendell Carter Jr. in favor of a more traditional starting five. Bol has logged 20-plus minutes in just three games since. Jonathan Isaac's brief return added another roadblock. The Magic don't trust Bol to play center; Carter and Mo Wagner share those minutes. Bol is something, but it's unclear what -- except that he's a can't-avert-your-eyes adventure. There is no sight quite like a 7-2 giant with a preposterous 7-8 wingspan zig-zagging coast-to-coast. Every elongated dribble contains delicious suspense; possessions hang in the balance as the ball hangs in the air. The journey may end with Bol tossing the ball five rows into the stands or Eurostepping between defenders for a face-at-the-rim dunk. David Steele, the Magic's wonderful play-by-play man, started referring to Bol's forays as the "Bol-ler Coaster." Greg Hartung, director for Bally Sports Florida, thought it might be funny if the Magic's broadcast team (Steele, Jeff Turner, Dante Marchitelli) -- plus the public relations staffers sitting nearby (George Galante, Joel Glass) -- mimicked the arms-up "wheeeeee!" pose riders take when roller coasters jet downward. Thus was born Orlando's latest niche hit: the Bol-ler Coaster: (Jamahl Mosely has no time for this.) This group has such fun camaraderie. They have learned to find joy in small things amid endless losing. They are basketball hostages -- experiencing NBA Mediocrity Syndrome. With Banchero and Franz Wagner aboard -- plus other young talent, and perhaps two more lottery picks coming -- the Magic for the first time in a decade can see above mediocrity. https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/35820904/flaw-undo-lakers-dame-career-scoring-run-preposterous-bol-bol
