Magic sign Ben Gordon to two-year deal

The Orlando Magic were looking to replace Arron Afflalo in free agency after trading him to the Denver Nuggets on draft day, and they seem to have found their man. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Orlando Magic have signed veteran shooting guard Ben Gordon to a two-year, $9 million deal. Gordon hasn’t had much success since leaving the Chicago Bulls, and this could very well...

Marcin Gortat evaluates Magic at paintball

“During the offseason, Gortat often works out alongside current Magic players and occasionally plays pickup basketball with them, too. Once, Gortat even invited a few Magic players to a paintball game. Who’s the best paintball player? ‘Hands-down me,” Gortat answered, smiling. “Out of them, probably Moe Harkless. Kyle [O'Quinn] was dying all the time.’” -from...

Orlando Magic collapse against league-worst Milwaukee Bucks

It was a race to the bottom between the Bucks and Magic. In every way. The Orlando Magic came out of the gate looking like they would cruise to an easy victory against the league-worst Milwaukee Bucks. That appearance was a fallacy, as Orlando blew an 18-point early lead to fall 105-98 in Milwaukee. Orlando fell to just 4-30 on the road this season. Leading 31-13 early in the second...

Moe Harkless with the drive and finish against the Wizards. The Orlando Magic road woes continued on Tuesday night, as the Magic were blown out by the new-look Washington Wizards, 115-106. The Magic were allergic to defense for most of the game, giving up 88 points through the first three quarters and that pace is not something that a 17-win team can keep up with. In his return to...

Video: Watch Tobias Harris dunk the Magic to win over OKC

Everything had to go perfectly right in the last six seconds, but perfect it went, as the Orlando Magic stole a victory on Friday night from the Oklahoma City Thunder. From Durant missing his jumper just right, to Victor Oladipo fighting for the rebound and running, to Moe Harkless having the frame of mind (intentionally or not) to drop it to the hard-slashing Tobias Harris for the...

Orlando Drops 7th Straight in Denver, Nelson Injured

Rim protection sans Vucevic, has been rare. The Orlando Magic entered their game with Denver Saturday night short handed and struggling. They left even more short handed and with their seventh straight loss as the Nuggets handed the Magic a 120-94 defeat. Arron Afflalo (foot) and Nik Vucevic (concussion) were both out of the starting lineup for the Magic, forcing Coach Jacque Vaughn...

Oh Baby! Oh Baby!

Our favorite slobbering, sobbing, hybrid power forward, slash center, has returned from injury and has started his season off very well. Glen “Big Baby” Davis returned to the lineup last night and played very well off the bench to the tune of 20 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, and 2 steals. I’m guessing he comes off the bench in the meantime, but I also wouldn’t be surprised...

What if the Bynum Trade Never Happened?

In the wake of Andrew Bynum possibly taking the court tonight for the Cleveland Cavaliers down at the Wells Fargo Center, it’s a good time to look back and reflect on one of the biggest Sixers trades in the past 20 years. It was just two summers ago in August when the Sixers shipped out Andre Iguodala, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless and a protected first-round pick in return for...

2013-2014 Season Preview: Orlando Magic

"Sometimes, the only way to win, is to lose. Embrace your losses as wins." Crappy Facebook update, probably I completely made that quote up, but oddly, if the Orlando Magic let an emo 17 year old run their social media accounts, this update would get dozens of likes.
