    Mo still looks taller (maybe they've both grown). It's always interesting if the young players got taller or stronger. Whoever's in the costume must be like 6'8"/6'9" ha

    Hah great post. Sounds exactly like a joke and sneaky diss. I really hope Aaron continues to improve and grows into a bigger role so he gets more ball. Hope we see plenty of minutes for good non Vuc and Fournier lineups this season say Birch-Isaac-Gordon-Ross-Augustin.

    Frustrating... I might have been expecting too much but I thought Vuc had a chance to cause Toronto serious defensive issues. When Gasol was guarding him, we should've pick and popped them to death.. when Ibaka was in we should have had a big advantage on the boards and in the post. Gasol and Ibaka have both been very good defenders but we kinda need Vuc to be effective like that if we're gonna pay him like a number 1 option and effectively change our pace of play for him

    Zach Lowe's latest article: http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25995187/10-things-like-including-mvp-race-nba 4. Jonathan Isaac, showing flashes It has become axiomatic that Aaron Gordon is not a wing, and that Orlando continuing to play him as one alongside both Isaac and Nikola Vucevic is stubborn folly. Against top defenses, that is probably true, and might remain so for years. But this trio has been sneakily solid despite the Magic employing zero starting-caliber point guards to guide them. Orlando has outscored opponents by almost six points per 100 possessions with their ultra-big frontline, per NBA.com. We know what Orlando wants defensively -- length, length, length -- and Isaac is going to be a multi-positional destroyer. They will rise and fall on the other end. The idea is that Gordon and Vucevic bring enough shooting and playmaking to open the floor. The execution is uneven, but you see flashes -- including the occasional use of Isaac as rim-runner: Terrence Ross is on the floor there in Gordon's place. That matters. Gordon is shooting just 34 percent from deep. Defenses stray from him to bump cutters. But unlocking this part of Isaac's game is important. It hasn't been easy; Vucevic is Orlando's primary screener, and Gordon needs reps, too. The Magic won't pry huge openings with all three on the floor; everyone has to get comfortable slicing through tight corridors. Isaac has been better over the past month attacking scrambled defenses off the catch: He is averaging 14.5 points per game in February, the best scoring month of his career. Isaac has hit just 29 percent from deep; until he proves a threat from there, smart defenders will just wait for him in the paint. But he's trying more 3s, and his stroke looks smoother. I'm officially intrigued with what these guys might do if Orlando found a real point guard. Old-school size can work if it comes in a package of new-school skill. The Magic held onto Vucevic, signaling they are open to re-signing him. I'm in for Gordon-Isaac-Vucevic until Mohamed Bamba is ready.

    I think you can. Boston has a similar offensive rating to us.. Would love the JJJ, AG, Isaac combo. We'd have no long term point guard which could hurt their development but they'd all individually have lots of offensive potential

    Lol I was hoping he'd keep going. It's unfair how they pick the head to heads. They essentially picked the top 25 but are letting the fans mix about one or two players by a place or two. Realistically we all know guys like 3D had better magic careers
