San Antonio Spurs
To borrow from Howard Cosell, Al Harrington was asked to tell like it like it is.I think theyre overrated, Harrington said of the Miami Heat. Man, I dont like the Heat.The Orlando Magic forward then quickly stopped.Im joking, he said with a laugh. That would have been bulletin-board material. I would have been all over the talk shows.Anybody these days claiming the Heat are overrated is either Jason Terry or foolish, which actually is the same thing.Harrington loves the Heat. But he does see the San Antonio Spurs as a potential threat should the teams meet in the NBA Finals.I think the Spurs just because, No. 1, they probably have the best coach in the NBA, said Harrington, referring to Gregg Popovich. Theyve just got experience, veteran guys. They have a couple of guys they can kind of throw at LeBron (James) a little but. But I dont think Oklahoma City has one guy who can (do much to slow James).If you like Harringtons take, turn on the TV in a few years and you might get more of ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Magic will still be without Nikola Vucevic on Wednesday when they travel to Charlotte to take on the Bobcats in a game with major lottery implications, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Vucevic did not participate in the Magic's light practice and will not travel for the team's road game tomorrow night.
Nik Vucevic (concussion) won't be making...
Monday's loss to the Heat was the first national exposure for the post-trade Orlando Magic. It came a little sooner than perhaps expected because the Heat are on that incredible win streak and the Heat flexed their muscles with that impressive 20-2 run in the third and fourth quarters that turned a two-point deficit into a rout.
This whole season, particularly the end of...
Although the Orlando Magic fell victim to the surging Miami Heat on Monday, helping the Heat cruise to their 27th straight win, fans in attendance at the Amway Center did have something to cheer about.They got to see a man carry out an elaborate proposal during halftime.Somehow, the guy manages to arrange for his girlfriend to participate in a half-court shot contest. As you can...
With Arron Afflalo down for the count there is even more opportunity in Orlando. Orlando is the land of fantasy basketball opportunity! You’ve got Moe Harkless, you’ve got Beno Udrih and you’ve got E’Twaun Moore. Moore is 6% owned in Yahoo! leagues. 6! Beno is 5% owned and jealous of E’Twaun. Moe is at 36% owned but that also means he’s also available in 64% of leagues...
Hedo Turkoglu has served his 20 game suspension and can now return to the Orlando Magic's lineup. He had tested positive for an anabolic steroid called methenolone. He was suspended as soon as the test results were known, and he served his suspension relatively quietly. Now, the Magic can have him back, but at this point in the season, does it really matter?According to...
We've some fans propose to their significant others at NBA games but this one during Monday night's Orlando Magic/Miami Heat game had a twist.Watch as the unsuspecting Elaina believes that she was randomly selected to take a half-court shot for a sizable amount of cash at Amway Arena.Elaina didn't come close to making the shot but she ended up being the winner after her...
ORLANDO, Fla. The Miami Heat have compiled more victories during a winning streak that threatens to make NBA history than the Orlando Magic have all season.But after coming close twice to defeating the Heat and playing them on even terms for the better part of three quarters Monday night, the Magic arent prepared to ordain LeBron James and company as unbeatable.Everybodys beatable...
The Miami Heat may have won their 27th-straight game, but this Orlando Magic fan stole the show. He proposed to his girlfriend at halftime like a boss.
A few weeks ago, in response to Kobe Bryant's then-debilitating ankle injury and accusations that Dahntay Jones somehow committed a dirty play by cutting under him while he was still in the air, I listed the dirtiest players in the NBA. I tried to take a different look at it and list players that were "dirty" in a number of different ways. I looked at "complainers...
The Magic got out on the break on one of those rare Heat turnovers and Jameer Nelson found E'Twaun Moore along the baseline. Moore had a clear path and rose up for a modest jam. His hand barely got above the rim to send the ball through.
It still sent Amway Center into something of a frenzy. Just a possession before, Jameer Nelson made an incredibly craft play, taking a kickout...
Despite being shorthanded, the Orlando Magic remained competitive with the hottest team in the NBA, the Miami Heat, for much of their all-Sunshine State matchup. However, in the end, the Heat got a near triple-double from LeBron James as they defeated Orlando 108-94 on Monday night at the Amway Center.
“When they got rolling, we had to try to stop them,” said Orlando’s Kyle...
Hedo Turkoglu wouldn't be shocked if he didn't play in his first game back from suspension, but Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn might have to give the veteran forward some minutes with the injuries piling up.
The Magic will try to avoid an eighth straight defeat on Wednesday night when the league-worst Charlotte Bobcats go for their first-ever three-game winning streak...
