Ola Oladipo: Promising guard is blossoming in year two and providing some Magic along the way

When Orlando opted to start Victor Oladipo at point guard last season — en route to a 23-59 mess — it was interpreted by many as pragmatism, an attempt to better its chances of winning the 2014 NBA Lottery. Oladipo is not a traditional lead guard, and as a rookie surrounded by an uninspiring roster, the former Hoosier suffered a mediocre debut filled with turnovers and missed...

2014-15 Season Preview: Orlando Magic

The up and coming Magic may be a surprise contender for a playoff spot in the East. Given Jodie Meeks’ recent injury, which is expected to keep him out for eight weeks, I’m no longer sold on the Pistons earning the eighth seed in the East.
