To say that things aren’t going well for the Orlando Magic would be an incredible understatement. Since defeating the Indiana Pacers on Jan. 24, the team has fallen into a four-game skid that if defined as abysmal would be a compliment. But it all actually started the night before that win, when the Magic produced a pathetic 56-point performance in a loss to the Boston Celtics. That Monday night game should be remembered as the moment the Magic crumbled. To be fair, the 66-game schedule hasn’t been kind to many teams at this point, with back-to-backs packed in like strippers in a trunk. But for the Magic – with my obvious homer status aside – it’s been a fascinating season with only 21 games behind them. And it all starts with the man who set the tone for Orlando’s season by requesting a trade, Dwight Howard. After last night’s hideous 74-69 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers (and the game was a lot worse than that score suggests), Howard maintained that his team can win, but he still ...

Blake Griffin throws ball, doesn't dunk

I understand I am sitting alone on this island but where I come from that isn't a dunk.  We gave Dwight Howard the same hard time at the Slam Dunk contest where he threw the ball through the hoop.  I am not discrediting the play, it was a big basket no doubt but to say he dunked on Perkins is a bit of a stretch, but I guess this is the world we live in where we want to...
