    Yeah coz it was Devos family’s fault for Shaq turning down more money from the Magic (which was offered) and for D12 being a douche bag. The Magic have been committed to being a classy and philanthropic organization, and they are willing to spend on players, build state of the art arena, and if not for bad luck (Nick Anderson free throws and early Jameer return) we may have been more competitive. We may not be perfect but we’ve given our heart to this organization and are still committed to doing so by bringing top notch management that has helped both Toronto and Milwaukee.

    Some people can’t be pleased and apparently don’t understand you don’t fix a bottom feeder trash team in 1 trade or 1 draft. Trust the process. Let it happen. This move made us slightly better and saved us a little money. Idk why people are complaining. It’s just a little move with little risk with possibly a little reward. Who cares? This isn’t gonna be the last move we make before the season starts. R-E-L-A-X

    I'm just going to be blunt and say anyone advocating a Westbrook trade at this point just doesn't know anything about basketball. I get that people are unhappy with Vucevic--I guarantee you'll be even more unhappy when Westbrook is on our team and needs to be paid 46 million dollars at age 35.

    The Gordon hater is here—to eat crow. Gordon has been the best player on our team this series and the 1 guy whose gone 110% on both ends every game. If only other players were elevating their playoff play on the big stage like he’s been doing. Oh well.

    We should rest Grant for the rest of the season.

    Have you all hit your heads recently? After years of unanimous agreement that Vooch needs to go, you’re now comfortable rebuilding around him? Last few years with no viable replacement on the roster: “TRADE HIM, GUY SUCKS. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.” This year after just drafting his obvious, high-ceiling replacement: “Well let’s not get too hasty here... I mean the guy has been playing pretty well.” Does it not alarm some of you that even in Vooch’s “good” year, we’re still 20-28 in the weakest Eastern Conference in recent memory? What part of his Renaissance has translated to anything meaningful results-wise?

    I legitimately might cry if we get kemba. Family is all from Connecticut. Most of my best sports memories are from UConn games. Some of my last memories of my Dad are excitedly talking about kemba. He died from terminal cancer in his early 50s a few days before kembas big East tournament run. My mom is convinced his death had some karmic sway over that championship run. Kemba is as close to a holy figure you can get in my family.

    I feel like calling either of them cancers is a bit to much. These aren’t bad guys embarrassing the franchise off the court getting suspended and what not. I think Vuch is a baby. I don’t really have a problem with Evan. I always liked him more than most. I’m just ready for a change. He’s the best natural scorer on this team so if we lose him we better bring some offense back. Vuch is a baby but he was happy to resign with Orlando when he could have left. He’s been a good guy in the community and always speaks highly of Orlando. Don’t get me wrong I’m ready to move on for sure—but when we trade him I think it would be entirely unfair to view his time here as a cancer.

    I disagree wholeheartedly with the cliché of "he just needs to suck it up" or "he's weak-minded". None of us morons posting on the internet can even fathom the level of fame & scrutiny these dudes receive, and they get it starting as teenagers. Imagine being an 18 year old drafted first into a professional sports league with billions of fans. You get hurt, get the yips, whatever the reason -- doesn't matter. You can't play. Now you're being talked about 24/7 on TV. Grown adults are in your social media mentions calling you a bum, a piece of ****, hoping you can never play again or you die. Is it weak-minded to be thrown off/hurt/offended by that? It's human nature to not want to be talked about negatively. Chris Vernon had a good story about this on a recent Ringer podcast. He was talking about how he got to know Chandler Parsons while covering the Grizzlies and Parsons basically confided in him about being miserable. It was a long-term effect of not being able to play, seeing people pointing & whispering about him when out in public, being confronted by people telling him he wasn't worth his contract, etc. Long story short, there are very few athletes or people in general who can actually successfully tune this much negative feedback out. If Fultz has in fact been affected by it, then I guess he's human? What's the problem?

    “Vuc has shown interest with Boston. It appears to be a mutual thing.” Pass it on so it makes the news circuits.

    Basketball reference has us at 38.5 wins, the 7 seed, and a 57.5% chance to make the playoffs. Think we need to really shoot for that 7 seed. There's not a series that we have a good chance to win but I think Milwaukee is the worst matchup for us. We handle Toronto really well because we're built to handle siakam, it doesn't really bother us to have Kawhi take Gordon out of the game, and I'm not as worried about Augustin and fournier defending Lowry and Green. Philly or Boston are definitely winnable. Philly with Simmons is easier to defend and they don't have the depth to kill us. Boston should just out talent us but we won the season series against them so maybe there's just something there. Milwaukee is the only series that I think is a definite 4 or 5 game series. The rest I think we can push to 6 or 7 if we play our best and maybe if the other team looks ahead we can steal one.

    We have a historical commonalilty. I like you have been a Magic faithful since day 1. I still remember writing out the $200 check one night in 1986 for season tickets for the 1989 season and my new bride of three years saying (not an NBA fan at that point) "Are you out of your mind, can we get that money back?" I had been an NBA fan since the early 1960's when my dad, who knew a local sportswriter, would get free tickets (only way we could go) to Cincinnati Royals games. The days of terratorial draft picks (yes they existed), Wilt (virtually unstoppable), Russell (the only one who could contain Wilt)and the Celtics, The Big O, 2000-3000 fans per game max. We would sneak up and get better seats as the game progressed, ushers did not care back then and let kids be kids! I watched the NBA and the finals along with the other 500 league fans (lol!) in the 1970's until it's resurgence with Magic and Larry. Anyway when it was time to select the seats before the 1989 season fans were invited down to the arena. So a Magic rep. takes my wife and I to our assigned seats and one of them had all the camerea hardware setup bolted in. They were good seats center court 35 rows up. But now impossible due to the camera. So she profusely apologized and had us wait. She returned and motioned for us to follow her where she proceeds to walk down the stairs towards the court and asks us if our new seats (at the free throw line 8 rows from the floor) would be satisfactory. I was so tempted to say "is this the best you can do" but I had already died and gone to heaven once that day (with the seats) so why press "fate"! That row of seats included the seats of the now deceased sports attorney Robert Fraley and Payne Stewart's seats (he was a huge fan) (May they rest in peace) so as I watched games my wife would converse with Ian Baker Finch, Corey Pavin, Orel Hersheiser, even Dr. J once (they had to pick me up off the floor that evening) and other pro athletes about things other than basketball. My wife and I also had an appearance on the ESPN 30 for 30 show about the Magic. The scene is the night the Magic had their 2nd #1 pick in back to back years (1993) and selected Chris Webber. That night the Magic opened up the arena for season ticket holders and fans and it was packed. Rumors had swirled that day about a potential trade with most fans favoring drafting and keeping Webber. Well we were at the arena and when the trade was announced we stood and yelled our disapproval. We were quite animated, enough that the local news showed our antics that night (only people shown) on the 11 pm news. We hoped nobody saw it and it would shrink into anonymity. Anway a couple of years ago when ESPN did the 30 for 30 show our nephew (who was not even born at the time) sends us a text with the video (25 years later) attached and says, "Hey Uncle Mark and Aunt Lee Anne is this you on this video". Holy sh.... it returned!!!!! You can watch it at the 31 minute mark (I think) when Pat Williams announces the trade. My wife looked at the video again and said, "Hey who is that idiot next to me". I calmly replied, "Honey, that idiot is me, your husband" Then she alarmingly said, "Tell me what I am doing with my fingers" I said, to her relief, you are booing with your thumbs down! Who knew! We are now known as the "professional protestors" in our family. "Call us" if you need a cause protested! So I mention this for two reasons. I can never "move on" from the Magic. Too much history and memories. I have to trust this management knows what they are doing. I hope we are aggressive on draft night, But if Vuch remains I think he will be dealt at the trade deadline. That is the first reason. Second reason is to thank any dad on this site who has taken his kid to a Magic game. You may have given them the gift of the NBA that will last a lifetime. I know my dad (rest in peace also) did. And I treasure that gift every season!

    I’m 100% pro tank. But some of you guy are absolutely ridiculous about the lengths you want to go to tank and how upset y’all get. Imagine being the hornets/bobcats. You are the most awful team in league history. You get the top odds. A franchise talent lies at #1 in Anthony Davis. You don’t win the lottery and end up with MKG and now you had a whole lost season for nothing. Stuff happens both ways man. Just be a fan enjoy the season and get excited about the player we get. Cause a bust can happen ANYWHERE in the draft. I am pro tank but I am not gonna let a win here and there get me all butt hurt like some of you. Go ahead and downvote me but y’all get pitiful about this stuff sometimes.

    Best thing about payton being traded is not having to hear you talk about hating his floppy hair anymore
