Orlando Magic Daily:
Los Angeles Lakers
It has been two weeks since the Magic acquired Tobias Harris, Beno Udrih and Doron Lamb from Milwaukee for J.J. Redick, Ish Smith and Gustavo Ayon. Some of the initial shock has certainly worn off and the Magic have gotten some impressive play from Tobias Harris and Beno Udrih through three games in a Magic uniform.
The move was clearly a move that had the future in mind. Orlando was looking to cash in on Redick for a player that could contribute and develop in the future and also for some form of cap relief. The going thought really was that the Magic would not be able to or would not be willing to match whatever offer Redick would get this summer.
Even if they thought Redick was worth whatever amount he would get paid, it did not fall in with the Magic's long-term plans to tie up somewhere in the neighborhood of $8-10 million per year. Redick may be beloved, but it is questionable to spend $15-17 million per year on two shooting guards. Only one can start after all, an...

In light of Dwight Howard's recent disparaging comments about his former teammates in Orlando, Jameer Nelson has come out with some scathing advice for his old running partner.
As the Harlem Shake continues to sweep the world, the fine folks over at the Orlando Magic decided to get involved with the dance craze by letting their dancing dads do their own version.Last weekend, the dancing dads got to shake their groove things during the Magic home match-up with the Memphis Grizzlies and I'll let the video do the rest of the talking:
Jameer Nelson had something, and nothing, to say about Dwight Howard’s latest dig at his former team.

According to the Orlando Sentinel:
“At some point, when are you [Dwight...

In a recent interview with KCAL/CBSLA, Howard said he took a team in Orlando “full of people nobody wanted” and led them to the NBA Finals. Howard was probably exaggerating for effect because he was trying to remind everyone...
Dwight Howard has received backlash from former Orlando Magic teammates because of his comments saying they were "a team full of people nobody wanted."
The Lakers and Orland Magic play in Orlando next week. This will be Dwight’s first return to Orlando since he was traded to the Lakers last offseason. Of course the visit comes on the heels of Dwight Howard’s comments that his Magic team was full of players nobody wanted. Jameer Nelson was drafted the same year as Howard and the two became close during their years together on...
LeBron James and Dwayne Wade combined for one of the sickest alley-oop plays you will ever see against the Orlando Magic.
There are few that will argue that Miami Heat star LeBron James is playing the sport of basketball at a different level right now.
As time ran down in the Heat's game against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night, LeBron had the ball in his hands with Miami down by one.
I think you can figure out what happened next from the title of this post:
After leading his team to a 39-23 record against the Orlando Magic Pacers Head Coach Frank Vogel discussed game tempo, three point shooting, and the upcoming showdown against Miami.

It looks like Dwight Howard is trying to go back on a statement he made a couple of days. After referring to his former Orlando Magic teammates as “nobodies” D12 is trying to clear the air on what he really meant. It’s funny how celebrities always claim that their quote was taken out of context, [...]
The physicality started almost from the opening tipoff when Arron Afflalo drove into the lane and got into a minor shoving match with Paul George. The two picked up technical fouls as they pushed each other and shared some pleasant words before teammates were able to separate them.
It was the beginning of Indiana getting under Orlando's skin. It was a constant theme throughout...

Dwight Howard attempted to improve his public image by sitting down for a recent interview with KCAL/CBSLA, but the Los Angeles Lakers center may have actually done the opposite. Howard has angered a lot of his former teammates by saying the Orlando Magic was a team “full of people nobody wanted” and that he led it with a smile on his face. JJ Redick is one of those former teammates...
