Well said. Got to say to win 42 games and one playoff game with the odd construction of the roster, holes at PG, SG, bench, lack of dribbling, scoring, shooting was pretty remarkable. Glad we got to experience some meaningful games again after so much despair.

I think he scored a few points so that'll please his fans.

After last game I thought I was ready for the season to end, but now that it’s here I’m bummed. :(

Congrats on your season, Magic fans. It stings to be overmatched in the playoffs - Raptor fans know that feeling well - but I think pretty much all of you were happy with the progress and fight in the regular season. Getting a taste of the playoffs is valuable and you now have a much clearer picture of who on the roster is a keeper and what pieces maybe need to be changed.

I predicted a 5 game series with you guys taking one at home, but coming in and stealing that first game was pretty huge, not just for you but for us. Nothing to hang your heads at as it was a great experience that you'll hopefully build from next season.

Also, you're welcome to hop on our bandwagon the rest of the way :)

Cheers.

Accomplished more than I thought we would. Isaac and AG look promising, we acquired a possible point guard in Fultz, Vuc showed his worth in the playoffs, and Clifford proved to be a solid coach. Here’s looking forward to 2019-2020. :party:


My man.

Let's see what Weltman and Hammond can do to help make this team take the next step.

So the numbers were as bad as his game looked. Evan wtf man. He better have a big year next year cuz we are kinda stuck with him for now. Would love to get a guard that is capable so he can play off the bench.

This roster is really flawed, Clifford deserves a lot of credit for this season.

WeltHam is going to need to earn their salaries this offseason. There are important decisions to make.

Props to the Magics, they played hard and their young guys play with heart, Gordon impressed me with his offense, Isaac can only get better and with Bamba and Fultz next season they have a future to look forward to.

Cliff was sensational this year. He got to produce something out of this weird roster and got them to believe. I really hope that Cliff is rewarded with better PG play and shooting next year. Grant was an embarrassement, Cliff deserves better PG play.

I said after last game that another dud from Evan and Vuc would be definitive. Well, here we are.
11/18/2017 - I have officially disowned Nikola Vucevic and branded him a loser.

- Skal Labissiere was my guy in 2016 pre-trade. Whoops, but I still believe.
- Malik Monk was my guy in 2017. Whoops(?)
- Mo Bamba was my guy in 2018. TBD.

The playoffs saved us at least 10-20 million in salary when resigning Vuc & Ross (if we do)

Great season! Reminded me how much I missed competitive Magic basketball.

Had a lot of fun with you great people and I learned a lot from you as well. Thanks and look forward to joining you for what’s to come next. Exciting times.

The plus/minus will be bad for everyone in this game. No one played well.

Good season. Cliff did a great job. Tough match up against a great team. Will be an interesting summer with a lot of the same debates on here over and over.

All in all it was a great season. I had a lot of fun with it.

Looking forward to what this summer and next season brings and I feel like we're headed in the right direction. Regardless of how salty I am right now, I'm proud of what the guys did this year.
