Orlando Magic Daily:
Orlando Pinstriped Post
The Magic opened up training camp last week and are preparing for their first preseason game Wednesday night against the Pelicans in Jacksonville. Orlando will finally get the chance to grow and develop on the court rather than behind the closed doors at Amway Center.
In this episode of the Orlando Magic Daily Podcast, we take a look at five big storylines for the Magic entering training camp. Questions we began really asking and answering at Media Day last week.
Among the storylines we are following are:
--The team's expectations for the season and where winning weighs against improvement
--Glen Davis' return from injury after a stellar season last year
--The versatility on the roster and the changing position landscape on this team and in the NBA
--Victor Oladipo's transition to the NBA and to the point guard position
--Jameer Nelson entering his 10th season with the Magic

ORLANDO, Fla. -- In celebration of the Orlando Magic's 25th Silver Season in 2013-14, PepsiCo released a limited-edition Pepsi can with the team's 25th anniversary logo.
The 12-ounce cans hit shelves this week and are available in retailers throughout Central Florida while supplies last.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Victor Oladipo's first NBA preseason game couldn't have gone much better or, by preseason standards, couldn't have ended with more of a controversy.
The argument wasn't about whether he should have been running the offense instead of Jameer Nelson or Arron Afflalo for the final 7:39 of the Orlando Magic's 99-95 loss Wednesday night to the...
The Orlando Magic are 25 years old. Nobody in college or high school remembers a world without the Orlando Magic.
Let that marinate for a minute.
Pepsi has released a commemorative can, ostensibly to celebrate the Magic’s 25th anniversary but mostly to just make everyone feel old. To a lot of fans, the Magic still seem like one of those Disney-related corporate experiments, like...
Final Score: New Orleans Pelicans 99, Orlando Magic 95 This game was a showdown between two of the youngest and most talented teams in the NBA and man was this a great game! This is just what you want to see in a preseason game, no lazy play, hustle and heart even when the game ...The post New Orleans Pelicans vs. Orlando Magic Recap appeared first on The League News.
The fun surrounding the Magic's 25th Anniversary season is certainly just beginning now.
The Magic announced 25 events occurring in the next 25 days to celebrate the Magic's 25th Anniversary leading up to the beginning of the season. It is going to be exciting.
Pepsi is now joining in the fun. PepsiCo, which has long been the official soft drink...
The 25th Anniversary season is upon us and the Magic are making their preparations and celebrations and releasing them slowly as the season gets set to begin. It is definitely a time for celebration.
The Orlando Sentinel is joining in on the fun now with their Bracket Buster series, a 64-player tournament to determine who the best player in Magic history...
Wednesday night, the Magic will take on the Pelicans at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. It will mark the second time the Magic will have played at the arena after squaring off with Miami in 2008. And really it makes sense with Jacksonville a mere two and a half hours away and Orlando being the closest NBA team by geography to Jackonsville...
Last week, the rebuilding Orlando Magic told an aging and expensive Hedo Turkoglu to stay home, a move that will no doubt lead to his release and a buyout. For most, this will pass as an expected and not particularly important event. Orlando projects to be a bottom-three team with or without Turkoglu.
Magic and Turkoglu fans, on the other hand, might get a little more sentimental...
Former Indiana guard Victor Oladipo came off the bench for the Magic last night.
It is the first game of the preseason, and so the 99-95 Pelicans win final score matters very little in the long scheme of things. Yes, the Magic want to win and the group Jacque Vaughn had out late closed a 13-point gap and fought with Pelicans secondary players but ultimately came up short -- a controversial 3-pointer by Harris was called a 2-pointer and prevented the Magic from...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Anthony Davis scored 29 points and the New Orleans Pelicans remained unbeaten in three preseason games with a 99-95 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.
The Pelicans made eight straight free throw attempts over the final 90 seconds to hold off a late charge by the Magic. Orlando used an 11-0 run to pull within 91-89 with 1:33 left.
Dwight Howard and Stan Van Gundy‘s relationship did not end well in Orlando. Before Howard’s unnecessarily drawn out exit was complete, Van Gundy had been fired — reportedly in accordance with Howard’s wishes — and the franchise was thrust into a black hole that led to the Magic posting the worst record in the NBA last season.
If there are any hard feelings, though, it...
Tracy McGrady, who officially announced his retirement from the NBA in August, will be honored by the Orlando Magic on Nov. 1 during their home opener against the New Orleans Pelicans.
In addition to being recognized during a center court ceremony, McGrady will serve as a color commentator during a portion of the FOX Sports Florida television broadcast.
McGrady played four seasons...
