Luke Ridnour Was Probably Traded Again In The Time It Took To Write This

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. » 6/25/15 1:06pm 6/25/15 1:06pm

Victor Oladipo Sings Horribly, Throws Down Tremendous Dunk

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… » 2/14/15 10:32pm 2/14/15 10:32pm

Nikola Vucevic Whomps On Pau Gasol's Head With Dunk

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… » 1/12/15 11:57pm 1/12/15 11:57pm

Wizards Win On Bradley Beal Alley-Oop Layup With 0.8 Seconds Left

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.… » 12/10/14 9:54pm 12/10/14 9:54pm

Here's Victor Oladipo Crooning A Bill Withers Song

This is from back in April, but the internet just discovered it because it was tweeted out last night by Shelby Gogreve, the woman on stage with Magic rookie Victor Oladipo, who fancies himself as a singer. The video above is from Indiana University's Spirit of Indiana Showcase. It's Oladipo and Gogreve, an IU… » 11/05/13 7:01pm 11/05/13 7:01pm

J.J. Redick And His Ex-Girlfriend Had An Abortion Contract

The muckrakers at MediaTakeOut have done it again, this time uncovering a very odd legal document that was drawn up in 2007 by lawyers representing NBA player J.J. Redick and his then-pregnant ex-girlfriend, model Vanessa Lopez. The document is essentially a contract that seems to be the result of Redick and Lopez… » 7/23/13 2:30pm 7/23/13 2:30pm

Dwight Howard Dunked, Then Blew A Kiss To Magic Fans

Naturally, Dwight Howard's season-high 39 points came in his only visit to Orlando this season, a 106-97 Lakers victory. Serenaded by boos and greeted by signs ("Dwight Coward" was a personal favorite), Howard returned the love after this slam, wholly set up by Steve Nash drawing two defenders. A kiss to the… » 3/13/13 11:02am 3/13/13 11:02am

The Heat Win Their 16th Straight, But Not Without Getting Every Single Break

The Heat got lucky. They got all the rolls, all the whistles, and the winner, a LeBron James layup with three seconds left, came off a timeout that was never called. It's almost a paradox: You get all the breaks when you're the type of team that can win 16 in a row, but you also don't win 16 in a row without getting… » 3/07/13 9:00am 3/07/13 9:00am

Chicago's Kiss Cam Is Almost As Hot As The Blackhawks

Here's a lady and gent thoroughly enjoying their time on the United Center's Kiss Cam during the Blackhawks win over the Colorado Avalanche. And why not? The Blackhawks won again tonight with a last-minute goal from Daniel Carcillo; it was his first of the season. Jonathan Toews also chipped in with a shorthanded… » 3/07/13 12:40am 3/07/13 12:40am

Twitter Loves The Orlando Magic, Has Never Heard Of The Arizona Cardinals

The Wall Street Journal has helpfully assembled the sort of slow-news-month story that lets you forget that none of the four major sports (five, if you include college football) is playing many meaningful games at the moment. In it, the incomparably named Stu Woo compiled the Twitter follower counts for every team in… » 3/02/13 1:30pm 3/02/13 1:30pm
