    McCollum, with two years left on his deal, just signed a 100 mil/3 year extension. Wowzers. Makes some of our contracts look like a deal.

    Will AG Become Elite?

    Is this coming season the year AG becomes elite? Given that AG just finished the season as a 23 years old, I submit the following stat lines of players when they were 23 years old. Most would be considered stars, and one of these stat lines belongs to AG. What line belongs to what player? Player One - 16.5 pts, 7.2 trb, 2.5 ast, 47 fg% and 34 3p% Player Two - 16 pts, 4.8 trb, 3.9 ast , 43 fg% and 34 3p% Player Three - 16 pts, 7.4 trb, 3.7 ast, 44 fg% and 34 3p% Player Four - 14.7 pts, 6.7 trb, 2.2 ast, 46 fg% and 33 3p% Player Five - 21.7 pts, 6.8 trb, 3.5 ast, 42 fg% and 36 3p%

    A sobering article by Lowe about superstar power in the NBA. I’ll let this part speak for itself: ”An underplayed subplot of this summer is that five superstars relocated to New York and Los Angeles. You can gloss over it by pointing out that the Nets and Clippers were never free-agent destinations and that the Knicks whiffed again. Fair. But the photo negative almost never happens. Multiple top-10 players do not conspire to get to Indiana, Milwaukee, Charlotte, Oklahoma City, Portland, Detroit, Minnesota. It has rarely happened other than (kind of) in LeBron's second Cleveland stint, and waiting for a generational player to be born near your non-glamour market -- and to feel the pull of home -- is not a replicable plan.” https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/27240776/why-kawhi-leonard-power-move-was-watershed-moment

    Still can’t believe Junkie personally trained Otis Jr during our heyday. Lol

    I remember when everyone around the league thought Curry would have chronic ankle problems: Here’s a quote: “Steph’s got glass ankles. Steph’s Grant Hill 2.0.” https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/14750602/how-golden-state-warriors-stephen-curry-got-best-worst-ankles-sports My hope is Fultz can find a similar path back to health.

    It’s kind of crazy all the hype Butler is sharing right now. If Fultz ends up a stud or even a decent starter, Orlando will quickly become a major storyline.

    I love these, especially because I’m from the orange grove region of Central Florida.

    Miami will take on Wall’s contract if it means acquiring Beal... And Washington is saying no thanks. What? Seems like a no brainer for Washington to me. “According to sources, there is sentiment inside the the Heat to take the final four years and $171 million of injured point guard John Wall’s contract if it would allow Miami to land Beal, who is eligible for free agency in the summer of 2021. But Washington appears unwilling to do that at this time.” “When John was healthy, he was one of the top players in the NBA hands down,” Sheppard said. “He’ll be healthy again.” www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/barry-jackson/article232568002.html#storylink=cpy

    Really hope we sign this guy: ”One of my personal favorites is Jeffries. His draft stock varies greatly depending on who you ask. Some project him as borderline first round; some see him going undrafted. Jeffries shot 36.6 percent from 3 last season, and effectively defended multiple positions with his burly frame. He’s a clunky ball handler but displays excellent passing vision off the dribble. Jeffries is like a quarterback going through his reads in the clip above. He notices that the entry pass is well covered before throwing a dart across the court to an open shooter. Are you betting on the player who has an innate feel for the game but needs to improve his handle? Or the player with a slick crossover who doesn’t notice an open shooter or cutter? Give me Jeffries.” https://www.theringer.com/nba/2019/6/6/18654810/nba-draft-draymond-green-role-players-grant-williams

    Agree. I mean "contending" window (assuming one or two of our young guys blossoms) probably starts in two years. I think we can be "competitive" every night this year.

    With the arms race right now in the NBA, I feel better by the day about the direction of our team. I love the potential of our young (under 25) core: Fultz, Iwundu, Isaac, Gordon, Okeke and Bamba, and I'm okay with the vets we have at this moment. Our true competitive/contending window probably opens two years from now but we should continue to grow and make strides in the meantime. Go Magic!

    I totally agree that our team might be attractive by 2021. However, I think recent free agency has demonstrated that big players that aren't homegrown like to go to big markets.

    Any of those guys have Central FL connections? Otherwise, I don’t think they consider Orlando. Our best course of action is player development and trades, and we are accumulating more and more assets under WeltHam.

    Fun fact: Kevin O’Connor of the Ringer had Okeke at 21 and Jeffries at 28 in his NBA Draft Rankings. https://nbadraft.theringer.com/#kevin
