You tune in game and figure 6 men are missing. You look at scorer board and every random scrub is putting up 25 points on given night. Level of talent ( or complete lack of defense ) makes product unwatchable. On top of that injuries due probably bad preparation before season are killing teams as well.

There is no dobut in my mind that tv ratings will once again tank.

As drsd mentioned, we will now play against deepest Celtics bench. How is that regular game?


The perfect season for us in Europe to actually sleep.


Tell me about it!! :)

Agreed, no way in hell that I will watch a season like this at 2AM here in Germany. On the other side, I watch NFL games at same time.

It looks like Raptors found their Isaac, Chris Boucher. Comes off bench, makes some threes, blocks some shots. Guy is 28 but, i don't know why isn't he playing 30 mpg instad of 22 but hey... 14 ppg, 6rpg, 2,6 bpg. ... Pretty much Isaac's statlines.

The NBA should really do something to prevent all these disgruntled stars from forcing a trade.
Am I the only one who feels that way?
Lived in Orlando eight years. Big time Magic fan. Also lived in Los Angeles, so I'm a Lakers fan. And now in Austin, TX, so I'm a Longhorns fan.

Am I the only one who cancelled my NBA Orlando Magic League pass after 12 games?

This team is unwatchable.

I went to the first preseason game in the history of the orlando magic and have been a die hard fan since that day. I can't even watch or follow the team anymore

Sure, I actually think if we are 100% healthy, I think we can be a very good team but ths team is injury prone again and the strengthening and conditioning department should all be fired immediately.

I stream it so they aren't missing out on my $$$, but I don't plan on watching the Magic unless they are playing an opponent I like to watch (like Luka). Once Fultz went down there was no reason to watch the team.

Also - Harden to the Nets and Oladipo to the Rockets! What's that, Oladipo's 3rd team since leaving us? Turning into D12 part II.

Houston didn't get worse in the short term....or long term.
They'll have ~20M in cap room for next year, and picks galore.

I have the entire NBA League Pass on auto-pay each year. I don’t even know how much it is, $100??

But given how much I watch around the league, not just Orlando, it more than pays for itself.

He also had an ACL injury a few years ago.

This team has been unwatchable for years regardless of injuries.

Maybe
but lets say that oladipo isnt kept, and they have a core of Wall, Cousins and wood, then they are in our position, not good enough to be a contender, not bad enough to get a top pick

And those 4 1st rounders are real nice, until you realize that if healthy and motivated, the nets are likely to be in the finals multiple times over the next few years so those 1st rounders are going to be in the late 20s or 30. Not terrible obviously, but this isnt a team thats going to be getting the #1 pick any times soon
