Day three was supposed to be the day that old college rivals J.J. Redick and Adam Morrison rekindled their battle, but instead Morrison wasn’t in uniform as the first game tipped off a little under 10 minutes ago. I’m not sure if it’s injury related or perhaps Morrison, who has looked anything but excited to be here the last few days, just decided to pack it in for the rest of the week. In the meantime Redick will have to settle for a battle with former ACC foe Jared Dudley.
Early game one notes:
Kevin Kruger, a point guard from UNLV is probably best known in Florida for being the son of former Gators coach Lon Kruger, might have a chance to go to training camp with the Magic if the they didn’t already have Travis Diener, a former second round pick that plays a similar style to Kruger.
I’m beginning to wonder if Blackberry has a deal with the NBA, because every player, coach and media member (other than myself) seems to be constantly checking their mobile device for updates.
It’s now the end of the first quater and the Bobcats are leading the Magic 29-15. I’ll have more updates later as news breaks.
