Found October 21, 2012 on Orlando Magic Daily:
There was a ton of frustration in the first four preseason games. The Magic looked good, perhaps better than expected. But they were not putting it together and bringing in results. Not in the win-loss column, for what that is worth in the preseason. That little bit may not matter, but the Orlando as a franchise is not trying to forsake wins or a winning mentality. That matters. Still, it is not all about wins and losses and many of the Magic's losses so far this preseason came when the starters went to the bench for the evening. No doubt, that makes the result mean a bit less. Going up against a quality opponent like San Antonio, however, Orlando did get a chance to measure itself somewhat. There remains plenty for the Magic to work on. Plenty to improve upon. But a 104-100 win over San Antonio at Amway Center on Sunday.   Score Off. Rtg. eFG% O.Reb.% TO% FTR San Antonio...

This weekend in jerseys: Dwight Coward, the Franchise, and the Ship

This past weekend I was in Orlando for one of my girlfriends friends wedding. Lebron must not have been the only one to take his talents to Florida because there were enough honeys there for Wilt Chamberlain to get his, have seconds, and everyone else get a taste too (note: I do not partake in these sort of shenanigans since I have a wonderful and loving girlfriend but instead relay...
