    Hats off to our guys though for fighting back from that huge deficit all game long. I was just able to rewatch the 4th quarter (that’s when I turned it off) and I admire the heart/hustle every player showed out there. Cole Anthony hitting his first game winner looked natural too and the first of many for him in a Magic uniform. Hopefully this game lights a fire under our guys and we come out strong tonight.

    They have no strategy outside of drafting long wingspan guys who have some sort of previous serious injury, can’t shoot, but have tons of “potential.” Basically like throwing a wet paper towel against the wall and hoping something sticks lol. All their moves have been predictable and mediocre at best up to this point. The team clearly lacks a shooter/go to scorer and we repeatedly draft/sign guys that don’t address that glaring need for us.

    Love how management finds non shooters to construct a basketball team. This is atrocious to watch. We always find the worst role players to put around our best players and then we wonder why nobody ever wants to stay.

    That’s what happens when you have years of mediocrity and are tired of the same regurgitated nonsense. It’s still early in the season and yes injuries have screwed this team over this year but it’s the same old song/dance and we are fed up with it.

    I’ve known it’s Alex Martins fault because the Devos family gave him free reign to make basketball related decisions he had no business making. I even brought that up and got told by other posters I was wrong it was the GM’s fault. If we look through the history of the Magic and our ultimate shortcomings there are 2 contestant factors. Alex Martin’s and the Devos family. We’ve changed multiple coaches/players and yet we still come up with the same results over and over again. Once both of those are gone we will be a competent franchise. Until then be happy with resigning Vuc/Fournier type players and trading away the meaningful assets. I’m still a die hard Magic fan but definitely not a believer in this Regime.

    Your boy Buddy Hield wouldn’t be a bad option either. Not sure what his contract looks like though.

    It’s going to be interesting what kind of lineup we roll with and what the rotations will be with all these injuries. I imagine Clark slide to start at the 4 tonight with Birch playing some backup PF possibly.

    Would love him here! Got to meet him a couple of years ago at Disney with my son. Got a pic with him and everything. Real stand up guy and a hell of a vet. If we could get it done without sacrificing too much I’d be all for it.

    I saw some flashes last night and it isn’t uncommon that a player just needs the right system/opportunity to make it in this league. Hope we get that luck and Bone turns out to be a stud.

    I enjoyed Briscoes tenacity while he was here and he’s Kyries cousin that has to count for something lol. On a more serious note I liked what I saw from Bone last night. He wasn’t afraid to be aggressive and found the open man most times. I think we could be ok with him running the backup point but MCW can’t be out for long or we will be in trouble, unless bone is the next unknown name to blow up. We are way overdue for one of those so hopefully it’s the latter.

    Bring back Briscoe!

    MCW is hurt as well and will be out the next few games. It’s going to get interesting how we run this PG rotation. I expect AG to run a lot of point forward.

    These strength and conditioning coaches for the Magic are looking highly suspect with all these injuries piling up.

    Yeah there goes our season with it. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was a torn acl. Hoping for a speedy recovery. It’s Cole Anthony time.

    I want to tip my hat to Vuc tonight for actually playing defense. He finished with 3 blocks and I saw him leave the ground a handful of times which is very uncommon. Great overall team win!

    Well said. It’s not that he isn’t a good player, he just isn’t good at the important stuff and the reason why offenses attack the paint against us and put him in pick and rolls constantly.

    But Vuc still doesn’t contest any shots and lets players regularly get easy layups. Wish we could get a player with Vuc’s offense and Khem’s defense. Unfortunately we have both polar extremes that don’t really translate to winning basketball when the games seem to count. He does keep us competitive during the regular season though and keeps us in games more times than not. He just isn’t the answer long term for this franchise if we are trying to win a championship along with Fournier.

    Not to mention whoever AG’s shooting coach has been the last 2 years has really messed with his game. He looks super awkward attempting to pull up for any shot on the court. Let’s not even get started with his feet shuffling before trying to get set for wide open 3 point shots. I’ve noticed his shot has changed drastically and may be part of the problem as to why he’s putting up such terrible numbers.

    We are about to lose a game we have no business losing. Guess we still haven’t learned anything smh.

    I like AG with Braids instead of Fro AG. He seems to play much better lol.

    Wouldn’t it have been better to just draft the guy and let him play for us? Oh wait... lol

    I mean I guess I could convince myself to get excited I mean it is James Harden but like you said it is Chemistry suicide and I’d take it a step further and say it’s Franchise suicide especially with what this fan base has gone through with players leaving for bigger market teams. It would be a circus the whole time he was here and I wouldn’t want any part in it.

    He actually is an a-hole in real life too lol. My father in law had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back in Spain during the offseason. Let’s just say he doesn’t like people not named James Harden haha.
