Orlando Magic fan since the beginning. I was 8 years old.

I'm in the military, and live in Hawaii, so I DVR the games and fight people to keep them from telling me the score until I get home from work.

I run between 3 and 6 fantasy basketball teams a year.

I've got an old used spalding basketball from the early nineties that the whole team signed, except for Nick Anderson. It was the Magic's first injury plagued season, and they still allowed fans to come to some of the practices. My mom and my uncle took me with my ball, and I got everyone. I specifically remember Stanley Roberts and Greg Kite. Greg Kite's voice is deeper than James Earl Jones'. Nick left right before I got to him and got put on the injured list the next day.

I've stuck it out for some tough years. It's nice to see some life in this team.

Hope returns to The City Beautiful

I think I realized how much of a fan I am of the Magic when they made the trades the other day.  Despite more than a year of evidence, I still believed that Vince and Rashard could be part of a...

JJ > VC

  JJ Redick is better than Vince Carter at the game of basketball.  Kelly Dwyer agrees with me.  I found it amusing that BDL sent a strong message on the subject.  When doing the top 30 positional...

Mid-season perspective

It’s been a long half season for all of us, and for me, because I’ve been forced to miss out on so many Magic games (among other things, as I’ve been in Iraq).  I’ve been loving the last two weeks...

Hilarious video of the creator of Seinfeld interviewing Blake Griffin. 5 minutes of your morning towards a brighter more jaded and cynical day.

Dwight Howard has developed a jump shot!

5

A video Dwight tweeted of a basketball workout. he hit like 9 of 13 mid range shots on the move. I loved it. I'm concerned, however, with how that fits into his game. Dwight doesn't have the greatest handle in the game, and if he makes people respect his jump shot, just so he can take it to the rack, I think he's likely to pick up more turnovers. If he got the ball handling skills to play a mid range power forward's game, the shooting would be fantastic. Maybe I'm just not getting it yet. It's late. Any progress is good progress.

Some poor analysis from Read Between the Baselines for you to get revved up over

The author demonstrates the vast knowledge he gained from watching the Magic in the finals last year by doing a misguided breakdown of their offseason.

How would David Lee fit with the Magic?

I saw this thought on another forum. Gortat for Lee in December if Lee signs a one year deal with NY, which is appearing more likely by the day. I've always loved Lee, for one, so understand that...

Anybody else thinking there's more homeless talent than money right now?

We've all been looking close at the FAs and thinking about how much it would take to sign them.  I'm starting to wonder what the actual pool of money out there looks like.  Lets have a look at the...

backup power forward options in exchange for Rafer

In no way shape or form are any of these options being discussed between the Magic and any of these teams, to my knowledge.  I've simply compiled a list of desirable backup big men, and a list of...

So about that goaltending...

Pretty sure it was in the second quarter (I'm on a business trip, so I couldn't DVR the replay.)...  Pietrus took the hit on his way to the hoop and Rondo got a good leap for what looked like a...

The venom for Rondo deserves it's own post.

I was truly inspired by squids opinions on the matter.  =)  I'm not nearly as worked up over it, but that's because I pretty much stopped actively watching the game before it happened, then DVRed...

Lewis vindicates!

Is he overpaid?  Considering that he's a borderline all-star and compared to other players of equivalent talent and experience, probably.  Is he worth it?  Based on his performance last night, I'd...

Haslem? Why not Marcin Gortat?

Everybody seems enamored with Udonis Haslem, but I'm not convinced he's the answer for the Magic at PF.  First off, Lewis has done much better at the position this year than last year,...
