    Hockey guy is John Gabriel and he was actually decent compared to what we have going on now. We let unqualified people run this franchise for too long and we have created a culture of losing and mediocrity. That’s why nobody respects this team around the NBA whether it’s fans or players. Look I love my Magic and always will but people need to stop being so optimistic all the time and sometimes be realists. This isn’t working and we need a change. Good points though and I hope we finally get out of this basketball purgatory.

    I tried to explain this months ago before everything shut down and was met with criticism. I’m glad some people realize they are part of the problem as well. I’m grateful for everything they’ve done for this community but they need to be held accountable at some point as well. We’ve been stuck in Mediocrity for far too long and I’m tired of watching the same show over and over again. We need a new and much improved management/team from the top down in order to become a competent and successful franchise again.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. The questionable resigning of Vuc after being almost unplayable in the playoffs was really the writing on the wall for me with this front office. I excused the first year when they said they wanted to evaluate the team and see what we had. I excused the second year when they said the draft flattened. We decided to trade away our second round picks when it turns out that draft was pretty deep with competent basketball players who could at the very least put the ball through the hoop unlike half our current roster. The direction this franchise is continuing to head is pretty concerning considering we keep putting the same product out on the floor, with the same core guys, and continuing to get the same results over and over again.

    I’m curious as to why Fultz keeps letting guys drive right by him to the basket? It was TJ last night and VanVleet tonight. He is lacking that intensity and fire he was showing before the hiatus. Hopefully he can find it again and bring that energy we are sorely lacking.

    Because he usually doesn’t play within himself and takes bad shots. This version of Fournier that actually moves the ball and makes the right play, I’ll take on this team any day. He doesn’t play that way consistently and more often than not looks to find his own shot or Vuc. I’m happy how he has played so far though no complaints here.

    That’s typical Vuc defense. Non existent...

    I think he will turn the injury big corner and have a very productive career. Just think of Steph Curry and his issues before he got stronger and he no longer deals with them. JI is our best bet besides Fultz to be an Allstar/Superstar

    JI break out part has officially begun... I know I know it’s a scrimmage game but wow does he sure look aggressive on offense!

    Preach! No need for that nonsense around here.

    I agree. They are most likely playing this close to the vest like they did with Fultz. One minute we have no idea when he will play and the next the organization has a coming out party for him. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Isaac play when we start these last 8 regular seasons games.

    I would say our defense started becoming suspect after JI went down with his injury. Before that he was anchoring this team down and was at least playing as a First All Team Defense and maybe even DPOY. We get JI back and we get back to playing suffocating defense. His play is that infectious and sorely lacking on this team.

    I have always be happy with our defense for the most part but it’s our offense that usually loses us these games. We don’t have a consistent 3 point shooter or go to scorer and that’s why we find ourselves fighting for the last seed in the playoffs instead of contending for a title. If we had just one go to scorer who can put the ball in the basket consistently, I’d be confident our defense would carry us deep into the playoffs. Good find though and I enjoyed the read thanks for sharing!

    https://apple.news/AJvLN5UO4Tp6bXG4SgpU2CQ Apparently JI may be ready to return once the season resumes play. That’s fantastic news for our playoff hopes if it’s indeed true.

    Exactly you hit it right on the head! It’s all opinions and you asked why I thought the way I did and I explained myself. I would just like to point out he is/was the common denominator from that 2009 finals team up until now. We’ve moved on from plenty of front office personnel yet he still stays with this organization. If we continue to tread in mediocrity who else is to blame besides those who continue to be here during this long asss rebuild and continue to put out the same boring product year after year? So we can’t blame ownership because they are willing to spend money? That’s a little absurd considering they were calling the shots on all fronts until recently. All that brought was terrible decision making and trading future All Stars for short term pieces that never ended up working out for us anyways.
