For the uninitiated among us, lets set the record straight: New Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigans most critical misstep this summer was not merely the act of trading franchise center Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers.
After all, it was plain to see that the Howard-Magic relationship had fallen into such a state of disrepair, the cloud hanging over the team growing...
DeQuan Jones turned heads this preseason and forced the Magic into a difficult choice. It was a choice that cost the franchise $5 million. Jones may not make more than $500,000 this year, but the decision to cut Quentin Richardson cost 10 times that amount.
The undrafted rookie from Miami was not much of a scorer or offensive player in college, but became a revelation in the...
I am taking a bit of a hint from Glen Davis to start off the regular season. Orlando Magic Daily wants to make it rain and turn it up, just with less autotune.
Orlando Magic Daily is teaming up with DraftStreet.com for a free fantasy basketball competition for opening night next week! If you enter the Orlando Magic Daily free roll, you could take a share of $300 in cash prizes...
I had to consult with Crossover's second in command, Phillip Rossman-Reich, for the video for Orlando Magic day. Apparently, former Magic guard Darrel Armstrong is adored in Magic nation. Yeah, who knew?
But as Phil told me the reasons why Darrel is so loved is because of his heart and hustle. Something the 2012-13 Magic squad is going to need considering the team is left in...
Last year when Dwight Howard went down with a back injury, Glen Davis really stepped up in his absence. Davis’ numbers went up and he averaged 19 points a game in the Magic’s first round playoff loss to the Indiana Pacers. With Howard shipped off to L.A., Davis is hoping his streak of solid play will continue, and he’ll become the go to guy in Orlando. Never short on confidence...
For those of us who have supported this game since the days before Cable TV and the Internet it is almost unfathomable to think the NHL, a league which hasn't hit many homeruns in their day, is about to cut off the one true "magic in a bottle" event they have come up with.
Having been to all the Winter Classics I can tell you they are fantastic celebrations of the...
Believe it or not, Opening Night is this week! Orlando opened training camp on October 1 and today is Opening Night for the NBA. So how will we get ready? By counting down to the beginning of the season on November 2 against Denver. Let's continue:
Today, the 2012-13 season opens. Not every one will be 0-0 after today. At 7 p.m., the Wizards and Cavaliers will officially...
It has been a while since we talked about the "Process" as Rob Hennigan describes it and how the Magic are going to build themselves back up. Frankly it might be a while before we talk about it again. The beginning of the season is a re-evaluation of what the team has on the roster and keeping a careful ear to the ground to see if a move can be made for the next step.
