The summer of 2007 was a big year for the Magic. They hired Stan Van Gundy as their head coach and then picked up Rashard Lewis on a controversial max contract.
That summer, financial decisions aside, obviously changed the Magic as they won the division the following year and then escaped the first round of the Playoffs for the first time since 1996. A Finals trip followed in...

On July 23, 2004, the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Drew Gooden and Anderson Varjeao in a trade with the Orlando Magic for Tony Battie and two second round draft picks.
For the next three seasons, Gooden and Varejao were teammates in Cleveland. Not only did they share time at the power forward position specifically, they also practiced against each other on a daily basis.
The Celtics have a chance tonight to close out the Philadelphia 76ers and get themselves at least a couple days of sorely-needed rest. Recent history though, says that when the Celtics have a chance to close out a series early, especially on the road, they don’t always take advantage of it. In all reality, we really don’t know what Celtics team will show up tonight.

They will see the Sixers two more times and hopefully this...
