Id argue if there's one thing this front office has done it's been patient with the young players we've drafted and kept hold of end bench guys who've flashed anything at all. We gave Wes Iwundu 3 years to crack the rotation. Melvin Frazier got 2 years despite never looking like an NBA player. We gave Gary Clark a 2 year deal off the strength of his play in the bubble. We rewarded Khem Birch with a 2 year deal after his initial year was promising. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Jordan Bone got a guaranteed deal next summer if he continues to look like a competent NBA bench guard. 

I honestly think that if JI hadn't gone down for the season and AG down for the bubble, Clark probably wouldn't have gotten a deal for this season. I think Iwundu would still be here. Not knowing when Aminu was coming back, and not knowing how Okeke would do contributed as well.

Wash, rinse, repeat. Below .500 mentality is not nearly good enough!!!

 Man i think i might treat this year of the NBA like the NCAA. I usually don't watch college basketball until March, might do the same with the NBA. It's just not fun right now. Obviously the State of the Magic is the big thing but covid,blowouts,missing players,injuries, and everything its all too much.I'm also really starting to hate everyone jacking up 40 three point shots a game. I might just scoreboard watch till around the deadline, i haven't  enjoyed any of the national games i've watched. I still like the NBA but this year is so whack.

James Harden: "I love this city. I've literally done everything I can. This situation is crazy. I don't think it can be fixed. Thanks."

He left the podium. 

Fultz, Harden, Okeke, Isaac, Vooch?

Cole, Cade, T Ross, ??, Birch

Trade AG, Evan, Bamba? 

I'm a dreamer lol

There's no way you get Cade and Harden. Harden makes you far too good to get Cade. And honestly given the choice in our position I'd rather have 8 or 9 years of team control on Cade than 2 years of team control on Harden.

At this point, and with our roster/management situation, I would not touch Harden, not even for free... imagine giving up assets...

  I did not see the interview but i did watch part of the game. This is what i'm talking about. It was bad and most games are really bad right now. Add in Covid,injuries,lack of effort and the Kyries and Hardens.I think the NBA is in trouble. For instance, i like my cable package, but i'm a channel surfer who can't make up his mind. Many of you and millions of fans already ditched cable. I read on this forum and others how difficult it can be to pick  a service that has your Magic. I think this is the year i do it too and i'm choosing the best value. I wouldn't go out of my way to get a package that has the Magic or the NBA.

I cut cable and dish. Have been using streaming for 3 years now. RSN (Sinclair) which owns the local Fox Sports affiliates has now been dropped from all the streaming services.  at&t the last one, recently. So it really sucks. If anyone has a streaming service that still carries the magic games. Please let us all know. Thanks.
