  1. Vogel is gone - Who should be our next coach?

    Better not go down that road. I agree with the majority, new blood but with aggressive accountability. Our young team need a strong leader. I don't follow the NCAA so I don't know about coaches there, but if I look at the NBA, the change of the style and pace of the game, and I choose the teams that have an adaptable style with continued success, I would go down the assistant route. I think that assistants of either Kerr, Popovich, Stevens or Spoelstra would be the best suited.
  2. All Time Team

    Only counting the players I watched since I started watching NBA, around 93 season: PG- Curry SG- Jordan SF- LeBron PF- Duncan C- Shaq Bench SG- Kobe C- Hakeem PF- Dirk
  3. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    That was the only time I felt a team mishandled a situation worse than the magic. Not paying harden was one of the worst fo mistakes I have ever seen, as they were already great with young harden and that prevented them of having a team with 3 of the top 5 players in the league together and 100% assembled via draft.
  4. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    I don’t have any other favorite basketball team than the magic, so I only watch the playoffs to see close games or nice plays. Ginobili is my compatriot and probably one of the best ever sportsmen in Argentina along with maradona vilas del potro de vicenzo monzon and messi right now wall and gortat are having a deadly 1-2 punch. This wizards team looks good. Ibaka hit 2 three pointers, but de rozan and lowry are nowhere to be found

    Tanking did not get us here. Trading oladipo and Harris did.
  6. Which One Play Ruined A Game Or Season For The Magic

    I understand alston did not have great numbers during the run, but his intangibles, attitude, confidence, swagger, we were playing at a different level with him. SVG messed it up by playing jameer again. Also I remember the following season we started playing better and jameer was lights out against bobcats and hawks, but rashsard was nowhere to be found and carter was not as good or as a difference maker as advertised (or expected) and we fell short to rondo and pierce
  7. Which One Play Ruined A Game Or Season For The Magic

    1- Howard misses 2 ft (leading to fisher 3 on jameer’s ever horrible defense) 2- nick Anderson misses 2 ft (leading to smith 3) 3- lee missed tip on a blatant goaltending by gasol by far the 3 most painful all time and yes, I agree that jameer going back for the series was a bad decision as skip to my lou was great in that run along with peaches gortat and lee 3 horrible moments that caused us to be without a ring btw I was just 12 in 95 and remember crying after losing to hakeem and going to my room and hitting ft in a basket i had in the wall and shouting “was that so hard??” how the tragic messed my life

    One of the greatest articles I ever read about the team

    We traded pick 35 to Grizzlies (Ivan Rabb). And we got the Nets pick in exchange?

    I read that we have a Sixers pick in the next draft. Can someone tell me what pick is that and where did it come from?
  12. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    I really don't understand people looking to root for another team when things don't go their way. I mean, that is the essence of being a fan, staying with your team through thick and thin. Orlando was absolutely tragic to me. The decisions and trades (not resigning Shaq, trading Oladipo, letting Billups, Ariza, Tobias and Ben Wallace go, etc), the FA (Grant Hill fiasco, Byombo and Fournier absurd contracts, etc), coaches, owners. But still, I will continue being a fan, regardless of all the absurd Hennigan, Gabriel, Weisbrod, Hammond, Otis decisions that might hunt us for years.

    So, to understand correctly, if the lottery is won by one of the 2 worst teams (Phoenix or Memphis), we would have 33% chance of having the 3rd, 4th and 5th pick, correct?

    What would happen, tiebreaker wise, it Atlanta, Dallas and us finish with the same record?
  15. Is Frank on his way out ?

    Fix what is not working and provide stability. Next coach should have a long contract, 5 years minimum, so he can quickly develop his own playing style with his own players and what is left of this trash roster. Try to trade-cut vucevic, fournier byombo or whatever makes financial sense (maybe it is holding on to them for 2 more years, but I would trade them for picks or expirings, if any team would be crazy enough to take those useless guys. The main focus should be develop youngsters like Gordon, Isaac and the next 2 picks and have financial freedom in 2 season so we can sign one good FA and maybe compete for playoffs in a couple of years.
