2014/15 Dallas Mavericks: Rising Sideways

It’s that magical time of year in the NBA, when hope springs eternal and all teams think that the upcoming season will be their best ever. While some teams will surely be rising up, the same amount will be rising down, with the rest floating along treading water (rising sideways). Since we at The Hoops Manifesto are always 100% accurate with our predictions, we’ve taken the...

Dallas Mavericks Sign Doran Lamb

The Dallas Mavericks are making it a point this offseason to bring in as much talent to training camp as possible. The team already has 15 players on its roster with guaranteed contracts for the upcoming season, but that hasn’t stopped Mark Cuban from bringing in veterans like Charlie Villanueva, Ivan Johnson, Victor Liz, Eric Griffin in for training camp. The list doesn...

Pair of lottery picks will help Orlando Magic rebuilding efforts

Year three of the post-Dwight Howard rebuilding project continues for the Orlando Magic. As expected, they were one of the worst teams in the NBA this past season but with a pair of lottery picks and a ton of cap space available, third year general manager Rob Hanigan is handling the team makeover the right way.

There is Doron Lamb

Of all the Magic’s second and third-year players, none carry so little attention as Doron Lamb. Perhaps that is how his career has always gone. He was the senior member (as a junior) at Kentucky on their way to the national championship. He led the team in scoring, but it was Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins taking all the headilnes. Lamb slipped to the second round as he was...

Doron Lamb shows improvement in second season with Magic

Doron Lamb has still not played the equivalent of a full 82-game season with the Orlando Magic. He doesn't possess the length of Maurice Harkless, the combination of defensive tenacity and 3-point shooting of E'Twaun Moore, or the all-around athleticism and seemingly boundless potential of Victor Oladipo. As a result, finding adequate playing time ahead of any of those three...

Now, the real work begins ☆

In the end, the regular season was only another cog in the process for the Magic. One more tick mark that needed checking before moving on to the next phase of the rebuild — an important Draft with two lottery picks and big decisions to make. The entire season was almost dominated by talks of that Draft and what was to come this summer. Nobody — on the court, at least — was...

Magic Musings: Orlando finishes off season with home loss to Indiana

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic ended their season the same way it began in late October, with a loss to the Indiana Pacers. Although the Pacers rested three of their regular starters with the playoffs starting this weekend, they had more than enough firepower to post a 101-86 victory over the Magic, who again saw several of their reserves play more than usual. In addition to...

Magic Musings: Orlando caps off road slate with loss to Bulls

The lineup combination that the Orlando Magic employed for the majority of the fourth quarter Monday night at Chicago might have looked unfamiliar to anyone who has followed the team this season. But the outcome was entirely too familiar. The Magic concluded their worst season away from home in the franchise's 25-year history with a 108-95 loss to the Bulls. A season-high 20...

Cleveland Cavaliers – Orlando Magic Postgame Interviews

The Magic not only endured eating a 4-0 sweep at the hands of the Cavs, but they got annihilated in the process on their parquet court. The only great news about blowouts is seeing guys like Doron Lamb actually get some well-deserved playing time. Also, Andrew Nicholson still has really short interviews. Poor Arron Afflalo.

As trade deadline looms, is it Nelson's last homestand with Magic?

Jameer Nelson stood at his locker before Wednesday night's game when teammate Doron Lamb bopped over en route to a pregame shower. "Can I get some soap?' Lamb said, sheepishly.
