The sad history of the Magic’s back-up point guards

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Garrett Townsend) — Over the last decade, the Magic have overpaid for underproducing back-up point guards One of the most important roles that any NBA team hoping to at least flirt with competence has to fill is that of backup point guard. You need a steady presence who can be trusted to distribute the ball, execute the game plan, and helm the ship when the starter rests or falls to injury. Without such a...

Off-Day Debate: Is Aaron Gordon an All-Star?

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Mike Cali) — On the first return for All-Star voting, the Magic forward was not among the East frontcourt’s top ten vote-getters The first wave of returns for NBA All-Star voting were released on Thursday. And nowhere to be seen was the name Aaron Gordon. Despite having improved in every statistical category during what has been a breakthrough season, the 22-year-old did not rank among the top-ten...

Heat 117, Magic 111: Tyler Johnson breaks Orlando’s heart

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Will Ogburn) — Any easy win turned into a baffling loss when the electric guard scored 22 points in the third quarter. “Uhh, it was disappointing, man,” said a wide-eyed Evan Fournier as he addressed the media postgame. “You know, I thought we fought, we played with the right energy. We had a good game, just had a really bad defensive second half.” His eyes conveyed the frustration that filled the...

Checking-in on former Magic players around the league

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Aaron Goldstone) — Aaron reacquaints us with how some former Magic players are doing around the association this season. My idea for this piece was actually born last May-June. It seemed like every night that I tuned in to check out a playoff game, there was someone in one of (if not both) the lineups that used to play for the Magic . Look, no one wants to be that person who constantly obsesses over an...

Orlando Magic 105, New York Knicks 100: Magic hold off shorthanded Knicks

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Mike Cali) — Nikola Vucevic scored 34 points as the Magic snapped a seven-game road losing streak For a team in need of a strong defensive performance, the Magic were given something of a holiday gift: a match-up against a team playing without its two leading scorers. Orlando caught a break with Kristaps Porzingis (25.8 points per game) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (17.8 points) both being sidelined with...

Off-Day Debate: What would be a successful season for the Magic?

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Garrett Townsend) — A strong start to the season was followed by an extended losing streak. So what are the Magic really capable of? The Measure of Success Having just passed the quarter point of the NBA season it seems appropriate to ask precisely what we should expect from the Orlando Magic when it’s all said and done. Wildly divergent results across the first six weeks have made it difficult to pin...

Off-Day Debate: Which Magic transaction would you undo?

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Mike Cali) — Here’s your chance to erase a trade, signing, or draft pick gone wrong In the spirit of giving on this festive holiday, you are being given the ability to hypothetically erase one of the questionable moves the Magic front office has made in the post-Dwight Howard era. Sadly, there are quite a few to choose from. The Magic, now in the midst of a six-game losing streak, were reminded of...

Weekly Magic Power Rankings

SBN: Orlando Pinstriped Post (Mike Cali) — How the Magic fared in power rankings around the web Almost across the board, the Magic climbed up the rankings. It should be noted that their loss to the Warriors is not accounted for, but being defeated by the best team in the world (even without Stephen Curry) likely wouldn’t cause much of a drop. It will be interesting to gauge the Magic’s movement over the next week or two as they...
