Among NBA players who spent their entire careers with one team, only Kobe Bryant had a longer tenure with his than Tim Duncan. Duncan played 1,643 games for San Antonio, and no player and franchise are as synonymous as Duncan and the Spurs are. It’s easy to forget, then, just how close he came to leaving San Antonio…
After all the pre-draft noise regarding potential blockbuster trades centered around Jimmy Butler, Oklahoma City moved first and flipped Serge Ibaka to the Orlando Magic for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova, and the freshly-drafted Domantas Sabonis. Woj broke the news:
Orlando Magic head coach Scott Skiles has suddenly resigned, according to the team:
Detroit station WXYZ reported on Monday that former Michigan State basketball player Keith Appling had been arrested Sunday night for bringing a loaded rifle to a strip club in Dearborn, Mich. According to a more detailed report from the Detroit Free Press, Appling had a handgun in his car, and a “loaded weapon” in…
The Chicago Bulls’ path to the NBA’s then best-ever record and the first of three consecutive titles wasn’t as inevitable then as it seems now, with hindsight, and that’s in large part because of the rise and fall of the Orlando Magic.
If the first time you really noticed Aaron Gordon was when he was jumping over a dragon on a hoverboard during the dunk contest, that’s okay! The Orlando Magic aren’t very good, and Gordon hasn’t quite managed to consistently put together his elite potential (though he’s close). The important thing to know is that he…
According to multiple reports, the Orlando Magic have traded Tobias Harris to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova. Sure, why not?
The Orlando Magic downed the Atlanta Hawks at home today thanks to this wild turnaround buzzer-beater from Nikola Vucevic. This is eerily similar to a game Vucevic hit back in November against the Lakers. Maybe the Magic should make their whole offense out of Nik Vucevic turnaround jumpers?
I don’t think this is what the Magic drew up—and if it was, really?—but it was good enough to beat the Lakers, and advance to 4-5.
The Thunder and the Magic played out a crazy-ass game down in Orlando last night, one that featured about as many would-be daggers and big threes as you’ll see in a regular season game.
The story of a Blake Griffinish start to Young Cock Aaron Gordon’s season, and a bunch of dunked-on Wizards, in three short videos.
Before yesterday, I wouldn’t have known where Luke Ridnour played last season. My best guess would have been, “Is he still in Minnesota?” The guard was actually with the Magic, until he was traded to the Grizzlies Wednesday, but his journey didn’t end there. Ridnour got shipped around two more times today.
The time has come for you to bear witness: tonight the Knicks and Magic combined for 15 total points in the second quarter of their “battle” in Orlando. So that this may never be forgotten, we provide you here the entire 12 minutes, set to the proper accompaniment.
Victor Oladipo, the living and sole justification for the existence of the Orlando Magic, entered tonight's slam dunk contest in Brooklyn to a hilariously off-key rendition of the theme to "New York, New York" before throwing down what turned out to be a pretty damn good dunk in the opening round of tonight's All-Star…
Given how fast-paced and fluid basketball can be, it's always funny when some unexpected shit happens and throws off the entire rhythm of the game. That's exactly what went down during last night's game between the Thunder and Magic, when the ball just refused to let go of the rim.
Pau Gasol is having his best season in a couple of years, suggesting that his recent demise wasn't about physical ability but the psychic torture that the Mike D'Antoni-Dwight Howard-Old Kobe Bryant-Nick Young Los Angeles Lakers imposed upon him. But one of the cool things about the NBA is that almost everybody is…
Bradley Beal still looks a bit off after missing the first three weeks of the season with a fractured wrist, but this is sure to raise his spirits. The Wizards entered the fourth quarter down eight to the Magic, but a furious rally led by John Wall tied the game on Rasual Butler's free throw with 16 seconds left.…
How very Orlando Magic to have the ball and a two-point lead with ten seconds left and lose. How very Stephen Curry to be the reason why.
