  1. Official preseason thread

    You can really see a difference on the defensive positioning with isaac. I was sick of watching fournier let his man go past him effortless. isaac really stands up and holds his ground on D. I keep thinking isaac gordon and bamba can become something special in 2/3 years, this is why I think we are just an FA and high draft pick away from being a contender. It will depend a lot on who we choose / go after, and of course, avoiding the injury bug.
  2. Official preseason thread

    Agree. It wouldn't the worst scenario, either, as I think this team is starting to get some important pieces. Adding a high pick next year with gordon under contract, isaac and bamba developing and maybe rozier as a FA, then this team is a possible 4-5 in the East.
  3. Official preseason thread

    Liked what I saw from Isaac yesterday. We are a rozier away from being a perennial playoff team.
  4. Greatest Rivalry in Sports

    River Boca The Superclásico is known worldwide as one of the fiercest and most important derbies.[8] In April 2004, the English newspaper The Observer put the Superclásico at the top of their list of "50 sporting things you must do before you die", saying that "Derby day in Buenos Aires makes the Old Firm game look like a primary school kick-about",[9] in 2016 the British football magazine FourFourTwo considered it the "biggest derby in the world",[10] The Daily Telegraph ranked this match as the "biggest club rivalry in world football" in 2016,[11] and the Daily Mirror placed it #1 in The top 50 football derbies in the world, above El Clásico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid C.F., in 2017.[12] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superclásico

    And machine ...
  6. Official preseason thread

    Looking at this, embiid could have scored 90 if vuc was "defending" him all night long
  7. Official preseason thread

    Wiggins Barton and Rivers better than Fournier for sure waiters and green have been up and down their whole career Harkless is better defensively and worse offensively.
  8. Official preseason thread

    Fournier and vuc are not starting material. Not for a winning team this is the year we will get to see if gordon really improved. And also we will really see what we have in Isaac. Best standing scenario is getting into the playoffs as 7-8 seed but I would rather keep building through the draft adding a guard with a high pick.
  9. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Hennigan was the worst GM this franchise ever had, and that’s quite the accomplishment taking into account his heavy competition

    This is how they won WC
  11. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    This should mean many new copiers, then
  12. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Then why did OKC chose us for this trade and not another team?
  13. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Can someone explain what the thunder trade means for us? If an nba team gets cash, what does it mean cap wise? what do they use it for? Are the salaries for purvis and jackson exactly matching? why did they add cash?
  14. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Nice. I thought I was the only Magic and 49ers fan in the whole world.
  15. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Finals road just got so easy for Celtics
  16. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Can you elaborate? When did we acquire a first rounder from okc?
  17. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    I don’t think any trade would help unless it is for future picks and expirings. We gotta follow the plan with our big 3 of ag ji and mo and let go vuc, fournier (and byombo next season)
  18. Draft day thread

    I don’t watch college basketball so I don’t have an opinion on the pick but taking into account what people were saying and the fact that this shows that management didn’t get picky and picked up the player they were supposed to it is a definite step in the right direction now they need to fix hennigan’s mess and extend Gordon, develop Isaac and let vucevic, byombo(next year) and Fournier go
  19. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    As I said before the rockets series, I don’t see Gsw losing any championship in the next 2-3 years they have assembled the most potent roster I have seen in a very long time, possibly ever seen
  20. Favorite NON Magic player of all time

    Best player I ever seen Jordan favourite because he is my compatriot and super talented Ginobili after Jordan the best is lebron and then duncan least favourite Derek fisher and Kenny Smith, they both killed me
  21. Favorite Magic Players of All Time

    Waiting for it tbh I don’t have any particular favourite because anyone either broke my heart (shaq, Anderson, Dwight) or wasn’t too good for too long to be favourite (Armstrong) or lost the finals which for me is even worse than being a lottery team (turk, Lewis, penny) or stole from the team (grant hill). It all leads me to tmac, I liked his game but I don’t have favourites because I am still waiting to See Orlando with a ring. As far as talent goes, Dwight shaq penny tmac and Turk are my all time 5, with Lewis being close 6.
  22. Clifford the big magic coach

    Certainly not an appealing coach, imho. If he holds them accountable and can make them play hard and unselfishly, maybe it can work. How long is his contract?
  23. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    LeBron is amazing, period. Even with him being one of the greatest all time, there is no way they beat either warriors (IMHO, as I said, no chance they lose the championship this year and the next) or rockets
  24. Clifford the big magic coach

    We are masochists if not it would be impossible to root for a team who has been heart broken as many times as us and that probably has 3 of the 5 worst managerial decisions ever
  25. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    I don’t root for any team not named Orlando Magic for me watching the playoffs is a impartial event, just want to watch close games and don’t care who wins or loses since Orlando is not involved
