Re: magic predictions
I've always wondered why the Magic have had such trouble getting to the 4th, 5th, or even 6th spot at years end. On paper, they're an incredibly talented team. Hell, not just on paper. What am I thinking? They are a talented team. I've got a lot of respect for Orlando for taking Dwight Howard when they had a chance. Okafor this, Okafor that. No. Howard was the best option, I knew his potential, and I was impressed that Orlando recognized it as well. Nelson was a steal--Orlando should be thankful such a skilled player fell that low. Short, yes, we all know that..but he's definitely solid.
I mean, the Magic's roster has a lot of potential. Turkoglu, JJ, and Lewis all bring something to the table. So why is that they never seem to do much in the post season (ignoring Lewis in this case)? Well, that's a good question. I really don't know. Team chemistry maybe? Poor rebounding? Injury prone? A little bit of each, perhaps.
They are, more or less, the same team as last year. Few game-changing additions aside from Lewis. I can see the Magic landing a seventh seed.
