Stan Van Gundy: Magic should be in Playoffs

“I would say the Bulls have more experience in big games, but in terms of talent, there certainly isn’t much difference. Charlotte’s got (37) wins and are going to get in playoffs, and they (Bobcats) don’t even have experience over Magic. I would take Orlando’s roster over Charlotte’s any day of the week. “In the Eastern Conference, Orlando’s roster is a playofff...
