What are you talking about? Brian Hill is a great coach and has this team heading in the right direction. They ended the season very well and had a double-digit game win streak until the last two games. Long live Doc Rivers? He is an average coach at best and has never made it past the first round of the playoffs. Brian Hill has guided this very franchise to an Eastern Conference title and numerous playoff appearances beyond the fist round. Hill is the best coach in franchise history. The GM, Otis Smith a fomer Magic player is doing a nice job as well. He had a great draft two years ago drafting Howard over Okafur and then trading to acquire Nelson in that draft. He also traded Cato for Milicic and Arroyo. Milicic should start at center this year. He showed that he can play by being a legitimate shot blocker and showed some nice low-post moves. The Magic should trade Dooling or Arroyo to acquire a defensive minded small forward. They also should re-sign Ariza and let Stevenson walk. He is a decent player, but wants too much money. Next off-season they will be like Chicago with a boat-load of cap room. Grant Hill's contract will come off the books. This will give them future cap room to re-sign their three-headed monster Howard, Nelson, and Milicic to long term deals. They also could lure a big name free agent from next year's more enticing market. Smith also drafted Redick to give Orlando a three point specialist to spread the floor. This was the Co-Ncaa player of the year award winner, the same award Nelson won in college when he was past on by many teams in the draft. Smith has turned Orlando's cap sitiuation around dramatically, and hire Brian Hill. He also has built arguably the best young nucleus in the league via draft and the trade market. Orlando could make the playoffs next year!
