Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images   Well this is disappointing. Charles King of the Orlando Sentinel interviewed Magic fans attending a game at Amway Center. The task appears simple. Fans were shown photos of current Magic players on the roster and were only asked to name them. That’s it. How hard could it be? Head-bashing worthy hard apparently. Awful. This...

Power Rankings Roundup: Wary of Aaron Gordon

The Magic completed a really strong week of basketball last week, ending up 3-3. Well, strong I guess is relative, but .500 basketball should get you into the Eastern Conference Playoffs. Also considering how road heavy the Magic’s early season schedule is, the team’s 5-7 performance so far is looking pretty impressive. Of course, the road weariness is just beginning. The Magic...

And Orlando put on its finest offensive display in the 107-93 victory over Detroit on the road, marking the team’s third road win of the season...
