    Win Tickets To Game 2 at FanFest

    Updated info for Game 2 giveaway.
  2. Hey everyone, Just as a heads up for tonight's game. The Magic will be giving away a number of tickets to Game 2 in order to continue to grow their social media platforms. They're having fans meet at the DigitalLOFT at Amway Center at 6:30 p.m. ET to enter to win. All you have to do is where your craziest Magic attire, costume, face paint, etc., because the tickets will be awarded to the most passionate fans and placed in a new section opened for the playoffs called the "Blue Zoo." And even if you don't get in for some reason, they'll be showing the game at Fan Fest, so you can watch outside with a number of Magic fans. Just thought I'd give you all a heads up. Enjoy tonight's game. -Dan

    Dwight being traded this summer.

    Can I end this right now by saying this won't happen. Anyone who really thinks that the Magic will trade Dwight Howard this summer shouldn't be in the sports journalism business. SERIOUSLY

    East's Playoff Matchups

    You can post your thoughts in this thread and vote in the OrlandoMagic.com poll right here: http://www.nba.com/magic/news/cohen_playoffanalysis_041211.html I think the Magic in four. I honestly beileve that if Orlando goes up 2-0 and then takes an early lead in ATL, the Hawks give up right there. At most five. Bulls in five. Celtics in five. Heat in four.

    Q&A With Otis Smith

    I recently had the chance to sit down with Otis Smith -- well more like chat with him in the halls of Amway Center -- and ask him a number of questions, one of which was inspired by a topic on this board.

    Nelson listed as day-to-day

    Jameer spoke to the media today: http://www.nba.com/magic/video/2011/03/27/032711nelsonm4v-1609076/index.html When told that Jameer is day-to-day, Dwight said well today is that day. Haha

    Dwight: "Why are you blowing me kisses?"

    It was Jameer messing with him.

  18. It's time for another edition of Ask Otis. Just post your question for the Magic President of Basketball Operations/GM here. I hope to see some better questions than just the standard trade for Melo or [insert player here]. Every now and again I get into a conversation with him about the message boards, so I'm hoping the better questions come from here rather than our Facebook or Twitter to prove a point. Do me proud. Also, if possible mention your real first name and city in the post.

    Here's my latest story on Earl Clark: http://www.nba.com/magic/news/savage_earl_clark_emerge_010810.html Has some good quotes from SVG, Clark and Howard.
  21. Not saying that there are any truth to the Thabeet rumors, but I thought that I would share this. I once had an off-the-record conversation with a Magic player about Thabeet. He thought the coaching/system he's receiving/under in Memphis is not the right fit for him. He explained that were he ever to come to Orlando, he could develop into a very solid NBA player.

    Player practice videos 10/22

    Yep, he expects to play. Ryan Anderson went through a full practice today, and even though he left with his foot wrapped in ice, he expects to play tomorrow against the Spurs -- assuming there's no set-back over night.
