Still killing time in August. So why not rank uniforms? Paul Lukas of Uni Watch on ranked the NBA uniforms and admits fashion is completely subjective. It is hard to argue with the simplistic and classic Celtics, Lakers and Spurs are three of the top uniforms in the league. Lukas favors green and stripes and hates purple (which, for me as a Northwestern alumnus and fan, automatically makes his opinion pretty pointless). So when the Magic come in at No. 28, even one spot lower than last year, it is time to ask, What have we done wrong? Here is Lukas' explanation: Orlando's original uni set felt like a fun party. Over the years they've chipped away at that design, removing most of the interesting details, and all that's left now is a boring, watered-down version of the original. Disappointing. No argument on the analysis. The Magic's original uniforms were essentially the style of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Fans absolutely love the pin...

Last minute free agent bargains

It is August, we have nothing to write. And the Magic roster has 15 players on it, including Romero Osby who remains unsigned as a second round pick. If the Magic decide to sign him, the roster is full. The only other roster spot that could be made available is if the team buys out Hedo Turkoglu's contract (and its final $6 million guaranteed). To put it simply, Orlando does...

Magic will be 'overly cautious' with Glen Davis

Last season, the Magic were 12-13 before Glen Davis injured his shoulder and was forced to miss the next month. He played nine more games before a broken foot shut him down for the rest of the season. He was not the same after the first injury in any case -- his just-launched All-Star candidacy was made irrelevant. Injuries were a key part of the 2012-13 season, derailing any...

Magic to be "overly cautious" with Big Baby's rehab, according to report

The Orlando Magic plan to take a measured approach with regard to Glen Davis' rehabilitation from a broken left foot reports Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: "The Magic tell me they will be 'overly cautious' with Davis which likely means he will join the [2013/14] season in progress." The Magic's training camp opens on October 1st at Amway Center...

Magic, city negotiating deal for entertainment complex

The Magic and the City of Orlando are closing in on a deal to purchase the parking lot across the street from Amway Center and the Orlando Police Department Headquarters. Mark Schlueb of the Orlando Sentinel wrote last weekend that the team would pay the city as much as $12.7 million. The question that the Sentinel, and many other concerned citizens have, is whether the city...

What is the greatest call in Magic history?

The greatest moments in sports history are often accompanied by a soundtrack. A play-by-play call that adds to the moment and rings throughout the annals of history. Our friends at Awful Announcing just completed a tournament to determine the Greatest Call in Sports. The winner was, somewhat predictably, Al Michaels' call of the 1980 Olympic hockey semifinal game when he...
