Feel your pain guys 

Post#1 » by deircr3 » Fri Nov 16, 2012 3:39 am

Im a bulls fan that lives in near Orlando. I kinda like the magic because I go to about 4 or 5 games a year. I remember when it seemed like the whole bulls team got up and left. The nest few years we sucked and only won a handful of games. I remember how excited I got when we beat the good teams. It felt like winning a championship. Don't worry about it. In a few years, you'll be back in the playoffs. I do have to say when it rains, it pours. Lose dh12, lost 5 games in a row and a cheerleader gets hurt.

Thanks for the sentiment. I am one of the crazy few who believe that we will make the playoffs this year. We just need to get healthy.

That's the spirit Malik seriously we need more positiveness around here.

Seriously as soon as we can get Ish and Ayon off the court and play the rookies more we should be better.

I am rooting for that 8th spot, too, but I am not holding my breath.

On topic, I am personally not in pain as I have been enjoying watching Orlando basketball this season. I am more excited than I was last season and the one before that.

Truthfully I'm not sure why more of us don't see it. The Magic were a competent backup point guard and center away from taking out the Pacers last year. The same Pacers team that was a #3 cede and pushed the Heat six games.

This Magic roster is far better than that one. The same BBD that made a formidable Pacers front court his b***h for long stretches. I saw a spring in Turk's step during the first game that I didn't see last season. Once we get him back, and you add Harrington (who can still play) and Nicholson to the mix this team becomes pretty dangerous in the front court. Plus an already above average back court recieved an upgrade in Afflalo.

Even Jeff Van Gundy said before the season we had a good shot at the playoffs. He reiterated that when asked on the radio this week, he just said we needed to get healthy.

I'm struggling this season. I can't get my heart into it. If I wanted to support a team that I knew had no real hope of doing anything then I'd go watch my little cousin's soccer team. But I also haven't got anything else that's ready to fill the void of basketball. It should be more work, but that doesn't lend itself to procrastination as well as being a basketball fan.

I cannot support fighting for a playoff spot this year. We need to move pieces, use our TPE and get a top 5 pick this year. I don't care how weak the draft is, we have no idea right now if someone may skyrocket up the draft board and be ours.

I would like to see us fully healthy before throwing in the towel, having Jameer back, all of a sudden strengthens our bench with E'twaun instead of Ish, then when Harrington and hedo come back, no more ayon/mcroberts, and also more mins for Nicholson and Mo as the season goes on

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

Pain? Replacing a leader with a toxic personality and a pervasive feeling of being good but not good enough with youth, hope, and potential is the best thing to happen to this franchise since 2009. We will likely get a top pick, and develop guys like Moe Harkless along the way. I've been watching every game, and I agree with some of the posters above--I'd rather lose regular season games building for the future (as we are this season) than half-heartedly win those games stagnating in the present (last season).

To be quite honest there isn't a whole lot of pain. We had a good team the past few years and it was complete misery to be a Magic fan. This team is fun to watch and great to root for, we don't have the next Lebron or Durant (yet) but we have solid young pieces with a lot of potential and solid vets who are worth cheering for. I'd tell you we are going to be fine but i already think we are.

Not that the sentiment isn't welcome. I hope Rose comes back better than ever too, for what it's worth he is one of the better superstars in the league.
