Found June 14, 2012 on Orlando Magic Daily:
Over the next few weeks Orlando Magic Daily will be taking a look at the things that went right and wrong this season as Orlando ended its season with a disappointing first-round loss to Indiana. There was one thing the Magic franchise could not get wrong this year. That might have been because the whole thing was out of their control. For one weekend, everything went right for basketball fans in Orlando. It was an extravaganza unlike anything this city has seen in quite a long time. And it went off without a hitch. The best way to describe it is to go day by day the whole weekend. By the beginning of the week when the Magic left for the road, Amway Center was already beginning its transformation. An adidas billboard went up picturing Dwight Howard and welcoming the world to "his town" (all irony aside). The festival was coming and the excitement was building. Friday was spent at Jam Session, the interactive basketball playground that was open to everyone and not as h...

Can Orlando Magic do enough this off-season to keep Dwight Howard happy?

Dwight Howard is still a member of the Orlando Magic… for now.  However, that could be short lived as the team searches for a new general manager, head coach, and improved talent to complement their superstar this off-season.  In doing so, that might be enough to convince Howard to re-sign with Orlando rather than hitting the market as a free agent next summer.

Decision day for Jameer Nelson delayed

It seemed so far off when the Magic's season ended in early May with a loss to the Pacers. It is finally here though. Perhaps a little sooner in the procedural process than the Magic and the player would like. By the end of the day Friday, Orlando was supposed to know whether Jameer Nelson will play the final year of his contract or become a free agent July 1, becoming the...

“Let Me Clear My Throat…”

If you’ve listened to my show at all this year, Big Boy Sport Show on 92.1 FM/1140 am OKC, I’ve been pretty rough on All Star center Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic. And I think he’s deserved every word because some of his actions this season have been pretty strange and down-right embarassing at times. The awkward “interview-crashing” with former head coach Stan...

Magic reportedly whittle GM list to three

Magic fans will have to be a little more patient. With the Finals already begun, several teams set to name new coaches and the NBA Draft quickly approaching, Orlando is still without a general manager. But the process is beginning to come to an end. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports that the Magic are down to three finalists -- former New Orleans general manager Jeff...

Jameer Nelson Receives Extension On Player Option

Jameer Nelson would like several more years of security.

Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder: Case of the Missing “S”

DATELINE: HUMOR! Of all NBA teams, only Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder fail to come up with an “s” for the cheerleaders. For the first time in history of the NBA, neither team in the Finals is giving us a letter called ‘s’ to conjure on the front of their jerseys. Yes, the word “significant” begins with ‘s’ while NBA “Finals” ends with one. The last time...
