The story in January has been simple for the now 18-29 Magic: Play defense and you win. Don’t defend and you’re getting crushed. Keep it 115 points and below and we’re in each game. Let opponents score more than 115 and we’re cooked. The return of Jonathan Isaac may help solve this problem as we’re 1-0 with JI on the floor.We’ve won 8 of our last 1…
 
Happy New Year, Magic fans. The Magic are 16-26 and only three games out of the play-in. We’ve had a good start to this Western Conference road trip. 2-1 with two more games against Utah and Denver coming. Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner are a phenomenal duo already, and the basketball world is noticing. We give out resolutions to the Magic roster.…
 
Doing it live after attending the Magic loss against the Lakers. As great as Orlando winning 8 of their last 10 games has been, lacking coaching decisions and massive defensive lapses cannot continue to occur. The Magic are in the play-in hunt, but that won’t last if self-inflicted wounds are not stopped. Also, NBA All-Star voting is occurring. Edd…
 
After reaching 9 consecutive losses, the Magic find themselves currently on a 3-game winning streak for the first time since February of 2021. So yeah, this team and fan base needed this right now. Better yet, Franz Wagner and Paolo Banchero are so far looking like the best players in their respected draft classes. Watching a Magic game in an Amway…
 
The Magic are 5-17. That’s bad enough for the worst record in the NBA. We’ve lost 6 consecutive games. Orlando is 2-8 in its last 10 contests. The losing isn’t anything new, but the lack of effort in some of these blowout losses is. If these types of games continue popping up where the Magic are not bringing the effort, Head Coach Jamahl Mosley is …
 
The Magic are 4-11. We’re a game above the worst teams in the league Detroit and Houston. It’s been a roller coaster November. We’re not even to Thanksgiving yet and the Magic have often been short bodies due to a combination of injuries and tanking. Funny how WeltHamm haven’t applied for any hardship help from the league. We’re for the 3rd consecu…
 
The Magic are 0-5. Worst record in the league. The only winless team in the East. We’re leading the league again in man games lost due to injury. It’s maddening. Worse, Head Coach Jamahl Mosley has us playing badly with some intriguing coaching decisions. And it appears some players are either struggling or have regressed. If not for Paolo Banchero…
 
The Magic concluded the preseason 4-1. You shouldn’t care so much about the record, be happy Orlando did not go winless and showed nice stretches of play. Now the regular season is here, it starts Wednesday in Detroit. Unfortunately, the Magic waived Devin Cannady to cut the roster down to 15 NBA contracts and 2 two-way contracts. Jalen Suggs hurt …
 
It’s here, Magic preseason begins. No more waiting around. FIBA Franz Wagner got his bronze medal for Germany at EuroBasket and that covered a lot of the NBA offseason gap. Central Floridians are currently in recovery mode following Hurricane Ian’s impacts on the state. There are still communities flooded and without power. The Magic lost 2 practic…
 
Not only did Franz Wagner play in Germany’s Quarterfinals meeting with Greece on Tuesday, but FIBA Franz started and starred in a big upset win over Giannis Antetokounmpo. I imagine that right ankle feels fine right now. Germany is on to the Semifinals where on Friday they’ll host Spain. Does Franz actually have a chance to win EuroBasket MVP? #Let…
 
Germany beat Montenegro to advance to the EuroBasket quarterfinals. FIBA Franz Wagner sprained his right ankle in the third period of that game and didn’t come back. Since then, his MRI came back clean, and he was practicing on Monday. Franz is a game-time decision for their Tuesday game against Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greece. I think Wagner will…
 
FIBA Franz Wagner and Germany ended their time in Cologne 4-1 in EuroBasket Group B play. Good enough to take 2nd place in the group and proceed to the knockout stage. All Round of 16 teams now head to Berlin, which is the Wagner brothers’ home city. Germany hosts Montenegro Saturday September 10th. It’s win or go home from here on out. Franz is st…
 
I told you Franz Wagner was dropping a 30-point game. An efficient 32 points against Lithuania on Sunday. Never did I think Germany would be 3-0 in Group B EuroBasket play. Nor that they would’ve punched their ticket to the Round of 16 knockout stage so soon. But they’ve handed losses to France, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Lithuania so far. That’s supe…
 
It’s another Franz Wagner German National Team pod update as EuroBasket is here. The 24-team European championship starts Thursday. Franz, who is coming off a 2-0 World Cup qualifying window which included an impressive performance over Luka Doncic and Slovenia over the weekend, will be entering it in good form. FIBA Franz v. FIBA Fournier!#LetsGoM…
 
The NBA released the schedule for the upcoming season. Instead of just going over it, we pick out away games Magic fans could attend as fun trips. Plus: The Magic roster is currently too big, an NBA executive-leaked Jordan Poole rumor, Paolo Banchero avoided injury in Seattle, and more!#LetsGoMagic Warning: Adult Language…
 
This episode is about the Wagner brothers. Specifically, FIBA Franz since brother Moritz hurt his ankle and won’t be playing any German national team games after all this summer. We’re approaching what will be a month-long stretch of high stakes FIBA basketball. Why should you care as a Magic fan? Because Franz could make a huge leap as a player by…
 
Just as we’re awaiting the NBA schedule release, the Magic to move into the AdventHealth Training Center, and the Wagner brothers getting into FIBA play, out of nowhere comes new Atlanta Hawks guard and All-Star Dejounte Murray starting a beef with our rookie Paolo Banchero at a Seattle pro-am of all places. Maybe the 25-year-old Murray is already …
 
Assuming a trade for Donovan Mitchell or Kevin Durant isn’t coming, the Magic were not ambitious during free agency. WeltHamm were basically like: ‘We’ve got Paolo Banchero and Caleb Houstan, we’re good’. On the one hand, no one got ridiculously overpaid. The Magic front office went the easy route. The Magic are very young, having lost another impo…
 
The Orlando Magic selected Paolo Banchero #1 and most people seem thrilled. Paolo is a 19-year-old beast who most likely will be Orlando’s alpha go-to scorer for years to come. Paolo shined brightest on a Duke team with heavy NBA talent. When they were making their deep NCAA tourney run, his teammates and Coach K in his last season relied on Paolo …
 
As we continue basking in the glory of the Magic finally bucking their bad lottery luck and earning the #1 pick in the upcoming June 23rd NBA Draft, we’re switching focus to what the WeltHamm front office should actually do now that we have all of this power. We’re 3-for-3 historically on #1 picks. Shaq in ‘92. We took Webber in ‘93 but wisely flip…
 
It’s just a few days until the May 17th NBA Draft Lottery. The Magic finished the 2022 season with a 22-60 record. Good enough for worst in the East, and second worst in the league. Orlando rolls into the Draft Lottery in the 2nd position, however we could be picking as high as 1st or as low as 6th when that Tuesday evening concludes.We’re going to…
 
The Magic are 20-58 as of this recording, tied for the worst record in the NBA. It won’t be the worst win-loss record in franchise history as the 18-win inaugural season team can pop champagne, but it’s going to be down there with the 20-win season in 2013, and three other 21-win seasons. This will be the Magic’s seventh 20-something win season in …
 
Terrence Ross, Mo Bamba, and Gary Harris are all still members of the Magic after the 2022 NBA trade deadline came and went. The Magic acquired Bol Bol and P.J. Dozier from the Boston Celtics. Why waiving Michael Carter-Williams and E’Twaun Moore could present a veteran problem for the franchise. Will the front office share when Markelle Fultz and …
 
The Magic appear to have gotten through all the COVID-19 positive tests picked up by the roster and coaching staff, it doesn’t look like there will be any further hardship exemption signings. Still no sign of Isaac or Fultz returning, and the Magic’s accumulation of injuries isn’t subsiding. The Magic had won 4 out of 6 games recently (our best str…
 
We’re 2 months into this NBA campaign. Due to COVID-19 positive tests with the team and across the league, the Magic’s December 20th game in Toronto has been postponed. The first Magic game impacted this season. I’d say likely not the last the way the omicron variant is spreading like wildfire around the world. Now’s a good a time as any for a prog…
 
The games start counting now. The Magic finished 1-3 in their preseason campaign thanks to a Jeff Dowtin Jr. winner in the final exhibition game. Wendell Carter Jr. got a 4-year $50 million contract extension, which seems like solid value. With Chuma Okeke, Markelle Fultz, and Jonathan Isaac not on the court yet, is the tanking plan already in play…
 
A new Magic campaign is upon us. 2021-2022. There’s excitement in the air, but also apparent red flags that hint at rough times ahead. And it’s not just COVID-19 related. The Magic legitimately need these 4 upcoming preseason games just to give the fans an idea of what the new offense and defense might look like when the games count, let alone eval…
 
Discussing the NBA Draft party at Amway Center. The fan reaction may have been louder for when Scottie Barnes was selected 4th by the Toronto Raptors than when the Magic picked Jalen Suggs 5th. Hot Take: Pops is not happy that the team drafted Jalen Suggs over Jonathan Kuminga and Franz Wagner over Moses Moody. At least most Magic fans seem thrille…
 
If you don’t know already, Jamahl Mosley is the latest Orlando Magic Head Coach. More importantly, the NBA Draft is less than a week away and free agency is right around the corner. The Magic can take positive news from the Milwaukee Bucks being crowned champions. Looking at the Magic’s depth chart and getting an idea of how lackluster 2021 free ag…
 
We’ve been gone a while. Almost 3 months. In that time, WeltHamm blew it all up at the trade deadline. We traded away our 2-time All-Star who didn’t want to leave Orlando. Cole Anthony had a solid rookie campaign and I’m very glad we have R.J. Hampton. We finished the injury-plagued 72-game season 21-51. But now Steve Clifford is gone, in a mutual …
 
With the help of a 9-game losing streak along the way, the Magic enter this trade deadline week with the 4th-worst record in the NBA. Operation 3-month tank is going as planned so far. Many teams around the league want their hands on certain Magic players, most of the rumored deals sound like B.S. but it sounds like Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier a…
 
Sometimes the basketball gods force your hand. That’s what’s happening this 2021-2022 season. The Magic took advantage of their weak schedule to begin the campaign. Best record in the NBA. Then Fultz goes down for the season, combined with other starters like Fournier and Aaron Gordon missing many games, combined with more injuries to other rotatio…
 
How does having the best record in the NBA sound, Magic fans? For the first time in franchise history, your Orlando Magic man are 4-0. Why is this happening? We’ll talk players, appealing numbers, what’s not sustainable, and compare the Magic with our East competition. It’s not crazy to be optimistic and have hopes of a potential sixth seed or bett…
 
The Magic concluded the preseason 2-2 and their 32nd regular season starts two days before Christmas. Markelle Fultz and Jonathan Isaac signed extensions, indicating that WeltHamm have given up on Orlando being a free agency destination for at least the next few years. Fans are back at Amway Center. And we begin this 72-game campaign with the cloud…
 
The draft and free agency have happened. Not a lot of action from a Magic perspective, so there are thoughts to be shared as this is year 4 of WeltHamm in charge. Magic founder Jimmy Hewitt passed away, COVID-19 is still a problem as NBA players and staffers are testing positive in training camps, preseason is ongoing, and the 2020-2021 NBA season …
 
This is our Orlando Magic pre-draft, pre-free agency episode, but it’s also going to be a review of the Jeff Weltman and John Hammond front office regime. WeltHamm have sort of reached that fork in the road where they have to be decisive on a path moving forward. They were hired in May 2017, so they’ve had 3 full seasons of being in charge. Going i…
 
It only makes sense that the return of ‘Magical Movies’ would involve the only other Bucks-Magic playoff series between the two franchises. We’re going back to 2001. Game 3, Magic trying to avoid a beat-of-5 series sweep. We played the first 2 games in Milwaukee fairly close. This Game 3 at home is owned by a 21-year-old Tracy McGrady who racks up …
 
They did it again! Orlando upset Toronto last year in Game 1 as the 7th seed. It was an even bigger mountain to climb on neutral soil as the 8th seed Orlando Magic claimed victory over the #1 seed Milwaukee Bucks 122-110 on Tuesday afternoon. 16-of-41 3-point shooting proved to be the difference. Nikola Vucevic exorcised some Marc Gasol demons to p…
 
The Orlando Magic concluded their 2019-2020 regular season with a 33-40 record including going 3-5 in their NBA Bubble ‘seeding’ games at Disney World. As the 8th seed in the East, the Magic have the tall task of taking on the #1 seed Milwaukee Bucks who finished with the best record in the league at 56-17. Orlando lost all 4 regular season matchup…
 
The Orlando Magic have lost 4 in a row since their 2-0 bubble start. Jonathan Isaac had his knee surgery. Aaron Gordon, Michael Carter-Williams, and Evan Fournier have missed time from the floor. Mo Bamba revealed he had COVID-19 and has not seen any court time the past two contests. Now Terrence Ross has left the bubble. When it rains, it pours. B…
 
The elation Magic fans had seeing the return of Jonathan Isaac to the court a week ago has now been replaced with horror. J.I. tore his ACL in the second ‘seeding’ game Sunday evening v. the Kings. This is going to change the team’s long-term plans as JI’s track record of ankle and knee issues have to be factored into that outlook. The Magic are 2-…
 
The games start counting now. Scrimmages are over. The great news for the Orlando Magic is they have the services of Jonathan Isaac again as the team will hope their roster continuity assists them in the Disney World bubble. What’s the Magic’s best 5-man lineup? We discuss the village setup and give our record predictions for the Magic’s eight seed…
 
The NBA is so far successfully acclimating itself to village life at Disney World as COVID-19 issues rage outside its bubble across the state of Florida. That means Orlando Magic basketball is back with three scrimmages and those 8 regular season restart seeding games coming our way. The chase for the 7th seed in the East is on. What would you brin…
 
The NBA appears to be settling on concluding the 2019-2020 campaign at Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in a single-venue campus/village/bubble environment with games being played beginning in July and August without fans in attendance. The Coronavirus is likely going to be an issue now and for the 2020-2021 campaign. With that…
 
‘Magical Movies’ features a Hedo Turkoglu (24 points) bank shot winner that topped off a 9-0 run in the final two minutes of a 109-108 win for the Orlando Magic on the road in Rose Garden Arena over the Portland Trail Blazers on December 9, 2008. It’s a contest that Brandon Roy (30 points) and LaMarcus Aldridge (25 points) should have won for the h…
 
“Don’t cool ‘em off, T-MAC! Don’t blow on those fingers! I don’t want you to cool off!” ‘Magical Movies’ is back with a Tracy McGrady offensive clinic. A 110-96 win for the Orlando Magic at home inside the TD Waterhouse Centre over the Chicago Bulls on February 21, 2003. The game is played immediately after GM John Gabriel deals away Tracy’s best f…
 
‘Magical Movies’ is back with an emotional 96-94 win for the Orlando Magic at home inside the O-rena over the Los Angeles Lakers on February 22, 1998. Nick Anderson drops a game-high 30 points, the game-winning 3-pointer, shows off his Merton Hanks duck walk, and gets a small dose of revenge against Shaquille O’Neal. Derek Harper, Bo Outlaw, Danny …
 
‘Magical Movies’ returns with an unbelievable 106-104 comeback win for the Orlando Magic at home inside Amway Arena over the soon-to-be champion San Antonio Spurs on February 9, 2007. It’s a Magic team finding its way with Brian Hill coaching, a 21-year-old Dwight Howard saving the game with a huge block and then winning it on a sky-high inbound al…
 
The debut of ‘Magical Movies’. We find a clip of an old game in its entirety, watch it, but instead of breaking down the game, we have categories and hand out awards. It’s a fun way to look at how the Magic used to be and enjoy the nostalgia. It all begins with a thrilling 106-98 win for the Orlando Magic at home in O-rena over the defending champi…
