  1. Oh I love it! I was hoping we'd be getting a new main jersey this offseason, a rebrand, but I guess that has to wait. BUT... Bringing back the T-Mac era jersey, The Heart and hustle look, also just warms me inside. Would be amazing if we could have the old pinstripes as well, rotate them, but this is just gold! Love the retro theming made by the social admins this summer I'll take a Banchero and Wagner, please! Ok also Fultz, Carter jr, Cole, Suggs, Black, Howard aaaand... just one for each player

    Did you see Jalen on The Sixth Man Show? Guy is HYPED for the season and the whole team is. He seems really confident in himself and the work he's put in this summer. He's also very proud to rep the city beautiful. They're coming!

    Paolo said in an interview that during his shooting slump in where he shot 3% from 3 for a month, he was battling nerve injury and once that healed, his shot got much better. Wish I knew German better :)

    A ghost of seasons past

    We need to check the shocks, bearings and some joints on the ol' bandwagon. It's been a long time since it was parked hah
  5. Hi! Let me begin by saying I feel bad for not posting here for a long, long time. I honestly feel like I neglected my Magic fam and the friends I had made here. Some I still socialize with on Facebook and Twitter err..X. For that I am sorry, genuinly as the Magic and the city of Orlando mean so much to me. I didn't go anywhere when ot comes to the Orlando Magic, I just got pulled in other directions when it comes to Magic news and disussions. That, and for a long time I had trouble logging in here for some very odd reason but that's a different story. However, at work today, I was missing Magic basketball and I started to think about thr excitement of years past, gamethreads, sognatures and whatnot. I felt I need to get back on here and what I miss a lot, is making and participating in gamethreads. I don't have a computer with photoshop today so my gamethreads, should I make some, might be a bit different. It might change as I have the urge. Also, getting old hah Looking forward to next season and cheering for the Magic with you :) ÁFRAM ORLANDO

    Victor Oladipo Appreciation Thread

    My heartrate jumped last night when I saw we got Ibaka. I went from "Who's Sabonis?" to "WAIT WHAT HOW?!" and then "nooooo Victor?" and I was bummed. BUMMED! I love the guy. Pure heart and a great person. But I thought about it and I guess it was just a matter of when we'd start using our younglings in trades and then, which one(s). Dipo, as much of a fan favorite he was, wasn't the franchise player or star who pulled us out of the treadmill purgatory. He sadly wasn't able to be that player. He'll be a fantastic 3rd or 4th wheel behind Durant (if he stays) and Westbrook, where he doesn't have to be the focal point on offense. That said, I wish him all the best with the Thunder and will root for him. OKC you later, Victor :(

    Not really. If teams don't reach the floor, the amount needed to do so is split evenly between the players on the roster. So, teams don't HAVE to overspend on someone to reach the floor, they might as well just do what they see fit and let the players they have get the rest.

    I can not and never will be able to understand what drives people to commit such hateful and disgusting crimes. What is there to gain by killing others, let alone innocent people? Why does the human race, being so intelligent and informed and not a wildlife predator trying to stay alive, have to be hateful and cruel to others, no matter where you are located on this planet? Why? Just WHY?! This makes absolutely no sense. There is no purpose to this. Go out, kill multiple people and getting yourself shot and killed in the end. There is no end result other than tragedy and ruined lives. Nothing to gain for ANYONE.

    Can we not sign Durant+Horford and then match whatever Fournier gets offered, to go over the cap and enter luxury tax, because of bird rights or something like that? What would we have to trade Vuc for, for this to happen? We couldn't take much back, so, TPE? Late 1st, seconds?

    Thinking about it, the following players will be lost this summer IMO: Nicholson (Maybe he gets a 1 year deal, to see how he does under Vogel?) Napier (whatever) Dedmon (easy to replace I guess) Vuc (traded if we get Horford+Noah) Smith (Would like to keep him though) Would not be surprised to see Fournier retained AFTER we sign two big names, preferably Durant+Horford (keeping the faith here), for depth and scoring. Vuc, although on a very good contract now, would most likely have to go too in a trade. So yeah, maybe some cap-brains could write up a scenario where we'd be able to get Durant + Horford + Noah ? Who would we have to let go to be able to make that happen? We're pretty set at PG/SG/SF if Payton really is the PG of our future, but a summer like that would really bolster up our quality and bring in the two stars we need plus a fighter/voice and turn us into a contender. PG: Payton, Watson, FA SG: Oladipo, Fournier, Hezonja SF: Durant, Hezonja, Fournier PF: Gordon, Horford, #11 C: Horford, Noah, #11 Not 1, not 2, not 3... Multiple playoff berths!

    If we somehow manage to get Al Horford to sign here, with Noah maybe for a minimum (doubtful?)... I guess Durant could see us as a perfect fit, both for basketball reasons (hi, Stern) and family reasons. After that, we could match whatever Fournier gets and we're set. I'm no expert when it comes to these salary numbers and the cap, but could we somehow end up with Horford, Durant, Noah and keep Fournier? Maybe then draft Skal or Poeltl? PG: Payton SG: Oladipo SF: Durant PF: Gordon C: Horford Vucevic Noah Fournier Hezonja Watson Dedmon Smith Napier Skal/Poeltl? If we'd get Noah AND Horford, that makes me think we'd trade Vuc. Or, could we use Vuc as a C and Horford at PF? We'd have a SF/PF/C rotation of Durant, Mario, Fournier, Gordon, Horford, Noah and Vuc... epic, but... realistically possible? I'm too much of a dreamer, I need realistic voices in my head. I summon realistic posters to respond to this post!

    If Parsons and Howard are our summer targets and signings, I'm going to be suffering from the sads. Dwight, although still an ok player, is a shell of his former self and starting to get injury prone and isn't getting younger. Plus, he hasn't honed his limited skillset to make up for his fading athleticism, so he'll be in a bit of trouble soon I think. Parsons... I'm worried about his knee(s) and I don't see him as a big factor going forward. I might be wrong, but I want Robbie and Vogel to swing hard for the fences and do whatever they can to lure Durant here. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. If they can't... then I guess it's Howard and Parsons. I'm going to be biting my fingers off until big names are signed, sigh...
  13. I guess they're ok, at least better than most other Christmas jerseys this year or last year, so... it's fine.

    Amazing, isn't it? :) Am I allowed to chill with y'all in this comfy sofa I found here in the corner?
