Tracy McGrady leaves after the first quarter with a strained right hip. He is listed as day to day. Other than that - it was a poor effort on the entire team. Juwan Howard and Drew Gooden put up some good numbers - but the defensive effort was not there. The Knicks would score at will against any player on the Magic except for Keith Bogans. Through all of the bad times, Bogans seems the one bright spot on the team. I really wish the players would learn how to make contact when setting a screen. The pansy ass attitude that our team takes on is getting out of control.
Speaking of Steven Hunter - did anyone else see him stare while a player grab another rebound and dunked? No wonder the Magic cannot find anyone to unload him on. Here are a few stats for the year so far. Now maybe some of the fans (sarcastic note: those who think Hunter should be our starting center) can get a real idea of what he brings to the table every night.
When Hunter plays, the Magic are 3-21. In the 3 wins, he played a total of 8 minutes. In those 8 minutes, he contributed 3 rebounds, 2 points, 1 assist, 0 blocks, 1 turnover and 2 personal fouls. The Magic have not won a single game when Hunter plays 5 or more minutes. In the other 5 victories - Hunter did not even play.
