    Default Life is unglamorous for the Orlando Magic's roster invitees

    Mickell Gladness, Manny Harris, Solomon Jones and Kris Joseph play professional basketball, but their lives lack glamour and certainty this month.

    They live in an unspectacular hotel. They share a rental car. They practice, but playing time is rare.

    They won't even get paid unless they beat the odds and make the Orlando Magic's regular-season roster.

    The Magic invited Gladness, Harris, Jones and Joseph to join the team this month and compete for one or possibly two open roster spots with second-round pick Romero Osby. Although the players have signed contracts with the team, those deals are known within the NBA as "make-good" contracts. Those contracts entitle the players only to a food per diem during preseason road trips, reimbursements for hotel and transportation expenses and disability insurance.

    I hope Mickell Gladness can make it. He's from Alabama A&M
