    Agreed. Spending money for the sake of spending money (see Chicago, Knicks this offseason) is not a road to create a championship team. I hope the front office is smarter than that.

    I looked at your commentary and had the reaction, “Yeah - no way it’s that bad.” *looks at the link* “Oooooo - this is bad.”

    ESPN Story: https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/32046072/nba-offseason-survey-execs-scouts-biggest-deals-best-players-2022-title-favorites The best move(s) of the offseason? 1. Kyle Lowry to the Miami Heat: 5 votes 2. Jalen Suggs to the Orlando Magic: 2 T3. The Washington Wizards trading Russell Westbrook: 1 T3. The Chicago Bulls' offseason: 1 T3. Patty Mills to the Brooklyn Nets: 1 .... The other move to get more than one vote was the Magic landing guard Jalen Suggs with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 draft. Suggs, who led Gonzaga to the NCAA championship game in the spring, was tapped as the player who can finally return the Magic to relevancy after spending the past several years mired in the middle of nowhere in the East hierarchy. "I think he's the kind of player that could change the direction of that franchise," an East executive said. ------- This says something.

    I think winning a mid 30's number of games is a win for us this year. We'll be near .500 with a team that is majority under the age of 24 and continuing to make strides.

    I always think of "What if" if we had kept him and that team chemistry in tact. I get that Vince Carter was that "go to" scorer we were looking for and clearly lacked in the Finals, but he did all the little things you want in a solid role player on a championship caliber team. I'm sure most of this is based on need in our player development office, but another part of me thinks Courtney Lee equally has the question of "What if" he had been given the opportunity to stay and keep competing here.

    I'm agreeing here. They have some good pieces. Trae Young is no doubt a stud, but the difference in their roster vs. ours is that they had a go to leader and scorer. I think y'all are sleeping on the Magic if (and obviously a big if) everyone can actually stay healthy. A Markelle, Suggs, Okeke, Isaac, WCJ line-up is defensively scary and offensively is just one player taking a leap forward towards their potential to be a serious starting 5 ready to push into the lower bounds of the playoffs.

    How do people say that if shooting and decision making is just so bad right now? I get he's young, but you normally show improvement from the 1st to 2nd season and he's gotten worse.

    He was playing great last year until the injury. There was a reason he was the consensus #1 pick in 2017. The man is only 23. He and Suggs will be a force that I’m very excited to watch.

    Any insights on the game? Didn’t watch.

    College Park - downtown Orlando baby! (And I actually haven’t been to a game in like 4 years / can I really even call myself a fan?)

    Players coaches are great. The Doc Rivers and Monty Williams of the world get a lot out of their players and are really beloved by their guys. But be too friendly, and not know how to really challenge these men, is exactly like Jacque Vaughn and other inexperienced assists who build relationship through positive training snd white board sessions - but don’t have to command the ship when things go sour and don’t know what to do when that inevitably happens. I’m not panicking. It’s the Summer League. Mosley will have more time to build a more full team identity and culture with defensive schemes and whatnot. He sounds like a smart basketball mind - I’m just curious to know if he’ll be able to handle the egos and create a cohesive chemistry, especially one that doesn’t sour as we inevitably drop a few games in a row.

    The irony is that this team has a lot of players from the Lakeland Magic, whom won the G-league championship last year. Team doesn't seem cohesive though. That's more on coaching. I'm sure we'll bounce back, but something has to change in the locker room when you lose this badly.

    We had limited practice together, so I get that we wouldn’t know how to play together well. With that being said, I’m with those concerned both about Cole/RJ’s ability to assess the game as it comes to them. But even more so, they’re playing the antithesis of Mosley ball with only 7 assists with 2 minutes left in the game. That’s coaching - not just players. That’s 100% coaching.

    That half ended ugly. You can tell Suggs started trying to play hero ball because the man very clearly HATES losing and by doing so, started making poor basketball decisions. Better him figure out this now rather than during the NBA season. RJ and Cole keep pre-making up their minds whether they’re wanting to score driving or giving what the defense gives them. RJ especially. Wagner plays smart on both sides of the ball but is getting blown by more than he should on defense. Definitely very concerning for a guy we drafted for his great defense.

    Did y’all hear Timma’s wife is a big time Russian Pop Star with 5.1M followers on Instagram? (Aka more than any single Magic player). Drives a Lamborghini. This dude’s legend just grows.
