The Orlando Magic went from a tumbleweed trade deadline. To a Shaq jersey retirement that was almost perfect. To the All-Star Break where Paolo Banchero pulled off a tripleheader of Indianapolis participation. To Mac McClung and Trevelin Queen bringing back hardware for the Osceola Magic. To now, here we go, the Orlando Magic are 30-25 entering this sprint of a 27-game regular season finish where the Magic are 8th in the East, but are only 3 games back of the 4th seed. All of that and more! #LetsGoMagic Warning: Adult Language ..read more

114. Trade Deadline Expectations; Orlando’s Own Death Lineup; Magic 27-24

by Penny & Pops Podcast - Orlando Magic Basketball
2w ago
The Orlando Magic are 27-24 after a disappointingly bad defeat in Miami to conclude a 3-2 road trip. That was the last game going into the Thursday February 8th NBA trade deadline. Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner had amazing moments on this 5-game road trip, but there are pain points with this roster. Although the team appears to have a ‘death lineup’ it can rely on late in games. Are the Magic good enough to be top 8 in the East – which would guarantee two play-in games - without making a trade? What about top 6 and bypassing the play-in entirely for the playoffs? Do the playoffs matter to Je ..read more

The Orlando Magic are 25-23 after enduring the challenging month of January. Orlando is still over .500 as a new month and hopefully less difficult schedule enters the picture. The Magic are the 8th seed in the East, but can easily still surpass Miami and win the Southeast division title. 21-year-old Paolo Banchero, in his 2nd NBA season, just got selected by the coaches to his 1st All-Star Game! P5 is the ninth Magic player in franchise history to make an All-Star Game. The Magic are the only franchise in NBA history to have 4 All-Stars aged 21 or younger (Shaq, Tracy, Dwight, and now Paolo ..read more

111. Paolo the Star; Injuries; Jersey Retirements; Kill Center; Magic 20-15

The Orlando Magic are 20-15 and in the middle of a brutal portion of its schedule while being decimated by injuries and illness, but that’s OK because Paolo Banchero is a star. The 21-year-old is almost a lock to be an All-Star in February, and he just had back-to-back insane performances: A career-high 43-point game in a double overtime loss in Sacramento, and a 30-point triple-double (first of his career) in an insane victory in Denver against the defending NBA champion Nuggets. Paolo is a stud, and the rest of the world is finding out. Amway Center is now the Kia Center (‘Kill Center’). Inj ..read more

110. Continue Being Greedy; Magic 15-7

This is arguably the best Magic fans have felt about their team since 2010-2011 before the Hawks upset Orlando in the first round of that playoffs. Magic are 15-7, protecting home court so far, and still are the 2nd seed in the East as of this recording. Orlando has two studs in Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner each averaging 20.7 ppg. In our franchise’s history, we’ve only had multiple teammates averaging over 20 ppg in a single season twice: Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway in 1995, and Shaq and Penny again in 1996. Franz and Paolo are 22 and 21 years old. Penny and Shaq in 1994, their fir ..read more

109. Orlando Beats Down Boston; Magic are 11-5; Top-6 Seed the Goal

The Orlando Magic are currently 11-5 with the second best record in the Eastern Conference after beating the defending champion Denver Nuggets and then the Boston Celtics in consecutive home games. Thank you, Celtics fans, for your revenue. This is the franchise’s best start to a season since the Dwight Howard era. This might be the best defensive team in Magic history. The Magic are on a 6-game wins streak. Much of this is being done without Wendell Carter Jr. and Markelle Fultz. The Magic have the best defense in the NBA, and likely also the best bench. Orlando concluded their first in-seaso ..read more

107. Magic Thoughts After Preseason; Tibbetts Gone

The 2023 preseason concluded with the Orlando Magic going 3-1. The win-loss record doesn’t matter. It’s all about how players looked and any lingering problems with guys on the roster. Is there concern for the rookies? Is everything OK with Paolo Banchero? Should Jalen Suggs be starting over Gary Harris? Head Coach Jamahl Mosley begins an important 3rd season at the helm, and he’ll enter the 2023-2024 regular season without his lead assistant Nate Tibbetts. Tibbetts recently accepted the head coaching position of the Phoenix Mercury, in the process becoming the WNBA’s highest paid coach. Shoul ..read more

106. Is Wendell Carter Jr. a Top 10 NBA Center?

In a current media atmosphere culture that wants to rank everything, it’s quite difficult to accomplish that in an NBA era where position-less basketball is becoming the norm. However, it is still possible to look at positions such as center. Is Wendell Carter Jr. a top 10 NBA center? Ignore the contract. Because if the contract was factored in, WCJ could be top 5. The Orlando Magic’s 24-year-old big man does not get enough praise as he should. Durability is the only thing that can hamper his ascension. Team USA would’ve benefited greatly had they had Wendell at the 2023 FIBA World Cup. #LetsG ..read more
