Orlando Magic Daily:
The Magic will close their 24th home season Monday night against the Bulls with the usual pomp and circumstance that comes with the final game of the season. Well, maybe not the usual as the Magic will miss the Playoffs for the first time since 2007.
It was a difficult season as Orlando cratered to the bottom of the standings, but there was a lot for fans to still be excited about. Several young players stepped up and showed off their potential. It feels like the Magic have created a solid base to begin rebuilding from.
For what it is worth, the fans have stuck by the Magic. Orlando is averaging 17,602 fans per game, 14th best in the league, according to Basketball-Reference. Considering the Magic have the second worst record in the league, that is quite an accomplishment. Fans have stuck by the team.
And so Monday is going to be a celebration of the fan as the Magic often do for the final home regular season game.
The Magic announced the festivities for Fan Apprecia...
