Former Indiana teammates Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo joined forces to dunk all over (aka posterize) their fellow NBA rookies at a recent photo shoot.

Victor Oladipo is 21 years old. He does not need to worry about being carded anywhere (if that is the sort of thing he is in to... just be sure to include Maurice Harkless in your plans for the next year).
No, what Oladipo is probably worrying about is how his official NBA trading card comes out. He and the other rookies were posing for Panini for their official playing cards...
Via Orlando Magic press release

The Magic will play a total of eight preseason games, including four at Amway Center...
The NBA free agency period is dying down, so it time to look back at each team who they signed. Also many trades went down, which I will also recap below.
Free Agent Signings
-Singed Al Jefferson to a three year deal worth $41 Million.
-Agreed to a two year deal worth $6 Million with Josh McRoberts.
- The Bobcats also resigned Gerald Henderson
Added through NBA Draft...
The Magic's official roster has been updated to reflect Ronnie Price's most important decision. Picking a jersey number.
Price will don the famed No. 10 jersey for the Magic. Most notably this helps us preview -- or at least eliminate -- one of the events for the Magic's Silver Anniversary Season. That would be the potential celebration for Darrell Armstrong, one...
The NBA's 2013-14 season will open up October 29 with the Magic in Indiana to play the Pacers at 7 p.m. before a TNT doubleheader that will feature the Bulls visiting the Heat and the Clippers playing the Lakers.
The opener will mark Victor Oladipo's debut just a short drive from Bloomington, Indiana, where Oladipo played three years at Indiana University. The Pacers...
Free agent guard Jannero Pargo has reached agreement to re-sign with the Charlotte Bobcats, his agent Mark Bartelstein said.
Pargo’s new contract will be worth $1.4 million over one season, a league source told RealGM.
Pargo, 33, averaged 6.5 points in 32 games a season ago, playing seven games apiece with the Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks before finishing the season with...
Point guard has become the most important position on the floor in the NBA. With the floor so spread out with shooters and the emphasis moving away from the dominating post game of the 1990s -- not to mention rule changes that have enabled ball handlers to get to the basket -- point guards are more than just floor generals. In many cases they are the point man and teams go as they...
The Charlotte Bobcats have had a disturbing tendency over the years to part ways with key players with not much compensation – either via trade or free agency.
Raymond Felton Tyson Chandler Stephen Jackson Gerald Wallace – they were four of the most important players on the Bobcats’ lone playoff team ever (in 2010). None of them are here anymore.
Gerald Henderson is here...
When Rob Hennigan was hired as General Manager of the Orlando Magic, it was expected that he would look to rebuild the team in the same manner as the Oklahoma City Thunder. Hennigan was an assistant GM with OKC for two years before the Magic came calling. Admittedly, the OKC model makes a lot of sense for Orlando. Both are small market teams which makes drawing big name stars nearly...
With the schedule set to come out later today, it seemed as good a time as any to review the Magic's offseason with our pal, Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post.
In the podcast, we talk about what the Magic's goals were entering the offseason and whether Orlando accomplished those goals and what the future might hold for Victor Oladipo, Maurice Harkless, Tobias Harris...
I am admittedly still cleaning up my notebook from Summer League a month ago. That week gives you a treasure trove of story ideas and storylines to follow, not mention quotes and information. I do not believe I am sitting on anything too important (I covered most of the major Magic storylines I wanted to cover on this site already).
One of the key storylines throughout the week...
The Magic will open up an eight-game preseason slate in Jacksonville against the Pelicans and take two Texas road trips to play the three Texas teams on the road. Orlando will make its Amway Center debut on October 11 against Cleveland.
The Magic will wrap up their preseason schedule on Oct. 25 against the Pelicans (just a week before the team opens up its home schedule against...
After the NBA schedule comes out this evening, the next major event in the NBA calendar is FIBA Europe's regional championship, EuroBasket. Several NBA players, including Magic center Nikola Vucevic, forward Hedo Turkoglu and Magic free agent guard Beno Udrih, will be donning their home country's colors for this major basketball event.
Unlike the other second-year players...
Beno Udrih will sign a one-year deal with the New York Knicks, according to a source.
The contract will be worth the veteran's minimum.
The Knicks had made Udrih their top point-guard target to sign.
Udrih played for the Orlando Magic and Milwaukee Bucks last season.
