The Magic start the 2006-07 season tonight against the Chicago Bulls. Today is finally here; basketball is back. The Magic are back. Personally, I can hardly wait to get to the game tonight. I hope that everyone is as excited as I am. I expect the fans to be back in full force this year as the Magic contend for a playoff spot. See you at the game!
The Indiana Pacers are a disgrace to professional sports. Last week, Stephen Jackson was involved in an incident at a strip club with two other members of the team. During the incident, Jackson ended up pulling a handgun out and firiing several shots. I cannot believe the media has left this alone. Am I the only one who thinks there is something seriously wrong here?
Tonight, the Magic play their final game of the seasona against the Indiana Pacers. The game is in Indiana and starts at 7pm. I don't know about the rest of you, but I want to see a big win to close out the season and make up for Monday night's loss to the Bulls
With the addition of Carlos Arroyo, rumors are swirling about Steve Francis. Where will he end up? New York wants to unload Penny Hardaway's contract for Francis. I don't see this deal happening for the same reason we didn't keep Kelvin Cato on the books. There really aren't any outstanding players available this summer. The summer of 2007 looks to have a better crop of free agents. For this reason alone, I can see the Magic hanging on to Francis until the summer of 2007 when his contract might look attractive to potential sign-and-trade candidates.
Time for everyone to hop on the bandwagon, we've made ESPN. Read the Daily Dime.
The Magic begin their training camp today at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Saturday the 8th, the Magic will have an open practice for the fans.
There is a nice article in today's Orlando Sentinel about the lack of faith in the Magic management. I would have to say that I pretty much agree with everything in the article except the John Weisbrod experiment being a failure. I believe we had our best offseason last year by trading Tracy McGrady (and the other stiffs) and landing Steve Francis, Hedo Turkoglu and Jameer Nelson (Dwight Howard was a given at the #1 pick).
