  1. 2016-2017 Trade Idea Thread

    Would you rather...attempt to trade Vuch now, or instead use him as a trade chip in the offseason to combine with our pick from the Raptors to move up to a 8-14 draft pick? If we're talking rebuild, the latter sounds way more appealing to me at least.
  2. 2016-2017 Trade Idea Thread

    I think you only have a window of time where players have the capability to remain engaged on a loosing team before they become fully disengaged loosing season after season. That window is probably 4-6 years max on thr same team. Humans instinctively want to win. There's only so much loosing one can take in the same environment. If we truly plan to start rebuild mode again which could take several years for us to be any good again, we should preventatively cut ties with anyone who would end up in that window. We want guys with the right frame of mind going forward.
  3. 2016-2017 Season Discussion Thread

    In my opinion the same reason why it's hard for AG is that same reason our other players struggle on offense. We rarely run plays "designed" to get a particular player open. AKA calling someone's number. If we're trying to get someone hot we should call someone's number a couple times in a row in an attempt to get them in a rhythm. Too often we end up instead with some level of passing but ultimately resulting in hero ball anyway.

  5. 2016 Off-Season Thread

    What about his HORRENDOUS pick and roll defense?? At least now he has ibaka and biyombo to bail him out.
  6. 2016 Off-Season Thread

    Trading those 2 at this point would be the grand finale to Rob's bait and switch on the idea of the Magic building for long term success through youth and character in the draft.
  7. GAMETHREAD: ORL @ NYK

    Payton makes me so angry on pick and roll defense. No effort at all. Makes our entire defensive schemes breakdown from the jump.
  8. Official 2015 Offseason Thread

    Sure we've either been out of the runnings or missed on a lot of the top available free agents out there this summer, but I don't see why S&T Tobias wouldn't be another viable option for us to get the PF help we need. Even if we do end up signing him to a close to max deal, as Cat has said it's still a favorable contract in the grand scheme of things. So while yes it would be an asset for us later on, no reason why it couldn't be a workable asset for us now. Any other front office team that has the brains to see his contract as an asset (minus the Kings of course) I think would at least entertain the idea of a trade if they happened to be intrigued by Tobias. I truly wonder if some of this train of thought could be why we haven't heard of Tobias signing an offer sheet (Henny, you brewin a lil sumthin sumthin?) Let's just say we could go the route of S&T Tobias. Who do you think would be plausible pieces we could get back that would benefit us?
  9. Official 2015 Offseason Thread

    Anyone else see the Sportscenter ticker that says according to Bleacher Report Tom Thibodeau is weighing his coaching options for next year, including the Magic position? Who knows if true, but the Magic have had some good showings against the Bulls so I wouldn't he surprised if our talent has intrigued him.
  10. GT: Magic vs. Indiana

    Wowee wow wow! At the game, impressive win for the magic. Everyone looked good top to bottom. With this squad we will not be a bottom of the barrel team, somewhere in the 8th seed range. We'll surprise a few teams for sure, really liking what I'm seeing so far.
  11. The Dwight Howard Drama Unfolds

    Trying to think outside the box here. May or may not be possible, but in theory if I were Dwight I would push for the trade to Houston (hoping what we'd be able to get rid of most/all of our bad contacts in exchange for these great prospects). Then next offseason sign long term with the Magic. It would come off real dirty in the media I know, but it would be a great squad to grow with together a la OKC. As time goes on, keep only prospects that actually pan out. I know...I'm crazy.
  12. Sources: Howard demands SVG to be fired

    I'm with you...this is basically what I said in my rebuttal to TrueMagic. There are a whole sleu of reasons why the players/coaches are in the positions they're in now. Otis is the ultimately blamee, I was always amazed at how SVG got so much out of several guys who were the exact oppositie of Stan's specialty in coaching (defense). How he hasn't gotten so mad that he executes a backflip in anger is beyond me. That being said, an abrasive style will eventually wear thin on players making millions and millions of dollars. This isn't an issue about what's right and what's wrong, it's the real world we live in and we can't change it. However, other coaches have found a way to manage it. At the end of the day we all have to give a little to get a little right?..some more than others based on the situation. Shenanigans I say, shenanigans.
  13. Sources: Howard demands SVG to be fired

    Right, I never said there aren't other factors that have contributed to the players tuning out Stan. Obviously the way Otis's roster moves have played out played an intergral role in where we are today. I was fortunate to get some information from someone close to the situation so I'm just relaying what I heard. Granted, I don't participate in the practices/huddles, etc to be able to personally confirm but it does jive with what YBR has stated so I'm going to say that is a majority of the player's feeling about Stan. So for various different reasons we're in this situation we're in, regardless of how it happened it needs to be fixed asap. If I were Otis I hope I would know this is going on and have a coach only meeting to tell him he needs to provide positive feedback to the players in addition to what they need to improve on, and a separate meeting with players to tell them they need to quit ctheir b*ching and start coming back home to Stan knowing that he plans to work on getting better in that regard. Basically all they need is a family meeting to get things clear and I think the current situation that I'm convinced exists could be repaired. Do I have faith Otis would do something like this to repair the situation?...HAAAAAAAAA NOT A CHANCE! :shard: Like others have said, if Stan goes Otis needs to go too. I have a feeling Otis will fire stan before he gets removed from his post. :( BTW, I've heard B. Shaw has been mentioned as a possible coaching option. I do and I don't like that at the same time, mostly don't like it. Would much rather a much more experienced coach, yet he's one of the closest options to getting Phil's basketball mastery in Orlando. As we all know Phil would never be the head coach here.

    I think you all are losing the message from YBR....which is Stan has lost his players. This isn't about Stan having the ability to be a good/bad coach, but simply put his players are tuning him out. AND...he either is oblivious to this or doesn't know how to get their full attention back. As good of a coach as you might be, this is one of the most critical things a coach needs to be able to do, even if that's adapting to what's necessary in order for them to tune you in again. Adjust. From my sources all Stan does is yell at the players (which many other coaches do)...but the differences is they also bring out the positive things. From what I hear there is never any positive characteristics Stan relays to the players, i.e. the good things the team is doing, only the bad. If this is true then keeping Stan WON'T work.
  15. The Official Dwight Howard Everything Thread

    Who really knows, but I remember hearing reports that Houston was interested in a Dwight rental. They have some players I'd like, or even better if they wanted Dwight really bad we could get a third team involved to sweeten the deal.
