  1. OFFICIAL GAMETHREAD: Magic vs Heat - 7 PM EST

    The SL offensive/defensive rating suggests what a good system will do with an extra year of chemistry and consistent coaching staff. The bench will learn to gel in time. Hoping Biyombo can continue to improve his offense.

    I think Isaac will surpass him in time. Isaac makes it look really easy. He's like T-mac. Oozes ease and poise. DSJr maybe this year's Iverson, but Isaac will be Kevin Durant. It's a stretch, I know. But I've seen it. I can see the future. SO don't worry. Everything will work out as long as I make sure the future happens as planned.

    It's all "fake news" to add excitement to the NBA. Gordon is right next to me drinking Kool Aid. He'll come back miraculously just before the playoffs and help with ousting Cleveland in the ECF.

    Predictions: 30 pt / 10 rebound game for Gordon Payton with 10+ assists Close game, but we win by 5 points.

    Perhaps Thomas put a curse on Danny Ainge. He was pissed for being traded.

    More triple doubles than any other Magic player ever? That's arguable, especially in a flawed system and given a coach who didn't believe in him.

    I checked out Jameer's numbers. I haven't been watching him and I gave up before the all star break last season. So yeah, Jameer is still pretty good! I'd bring him in for heart alone. He and Simmons would tear up the second unit.

    You seriously believe that? Wow. If so, it just shows how much people really underestimate what Payton can do for this team and for this specific roster around him. Management has seen and accepted what he is, and is moving towards giving him and Gordon keys to the kingdom. Payton will show his worth this year. Maybe not in stats. But in wins. And in how he makes everyone else around him better. I have a prediction. I predict that before he retires Payton will beat the record for most assists in a game that was made by a former Orlando Magic player. Watch. I hope he does it this year.

    I understand the feeling of hopelessness. Judging from pre-season alone, this is fortunately a completely different team. With continuity and player development, alongside a change in philosophy, I expect this team to win early and gain confidence as the season unfolds. Payton can be effective without his shot if he can get everyone else involved.

    Yeah Fournier did that last year.

    There’s a lot of evidence that Gordon works at his game. He’s a gym rat. I think we are seeing those results now compounded by an embarrassing season putting up with a crowded front court that didn’t capitalize on his athleticism. I think he’s the real deal.

    He has been playing well. The run and gun style suits Augustin's strengths while hiding his defensive weaknesses. Mack will adapt in time though, and is a proven defender.
  13. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    With a changed philosophy, coaching continuity, natural progression of player development, and a revamped bench, I expect a significant improvement for this team. To add, a weaker Eastern Conference, and we may be a top 6 team.

    He's been phenomenol. I'd rather he start over Ross TBH. Simmons is "Wade-like" in intensity. He's going to be one of our best players this year. What if the "near future" we have: Gordon - Isaac - Simmons - Fournier - Payton
