I'm not really surprised. The forfeit on Wednesday I'm sure turned a lot of people off along with the fact we stood no chance against this team with how we are currently built. I just didn't expect it to be this bad lol.


I completely agree, and that is not to say what the players did was wrong.

Meh. Another wasted year hoping we make major moves but I’m not holding my breath that it actually happens this offseason. Even this forum doesn’t care anymore.

And what is wrong with that? You rather not make the playoffs every year?

Well, the season is over although it definitely was much later than we all expected. The Magic were shorthanded but did get a game against Milwaukee and were part of history.

I always knew they would restart the season and am grateful for these past couple of basketball weeks.

Now, we look ahead to The Draft and an offseason where we are likely to see a few moves made.

TNT's average viewership is down 40% since 2011-12. While ESPN’s viewership is down about 20% in that same time frame.

"Ratings disaster of a season, with the NBA’s most-watched game of last week trailing golf, NASCAR and wrestling."


I had no clue it's that bad


It's unprecedented season. I feel like Covid19, the social issues, the financial crisis, and the election are all having an impact on the NBA. But people have short memories so I know things will get better.

Hope clifford is the first one gone. You seen no gameplan, no plays, nothing

I can probably count on one hand how many successful out of bounds plays. Hes rotations are an absolute joke. and honestly, has ANYONE improved the past 2 years? seems like everyone besides vuc has regressed, alot.
Fultz development has bothered me the most. You literally saw no improvement from him from game 1 to today, he was given no more responsibility given to him, and even down 3-1, clifford still featured DJ for most of this game, why?? what does that accomplish long term??

Ill be very disappointed if clifford, DJ and evan are here next year. Weham too, but id be fine giving them one more year

I would love to see Clifford gone, he is not a good coach but I think he will stay for 1 more year

I am just being honest what kind of future do the magic have because they really look like trash. Other than Issac what do they have? They really need to tear this down and start over.

I don’t really have much of an opinion on anything magic related anymore. Everyone could go and I wouldn’t bat an eye.

Tough season. The margin of error against Bucks is just so small. We are not a good team and I hope major moves are made in the offseason.

Will be a Magic fan next year

Fultz, Fournier, Isaac, Vucevic, Dj, Ross and Bamba improved. Talking about rotations with our player pool must be a joke right ? I think team played hard all series. I am very pleased with the work he has done with this personel.
Bold Predictions:
1. Deandre Ayton biggest disappointment of 2018 draft.
2. Nick Nurse becomes Orlando Magic Head Coach. (15.04.2018)

They need to trade anything and everything outside of Isaac and Fultz and just start over. It is a painful decision that should have been made four years ago.

I think if we added Oubre and the 10th pick. Then the 10th and 15th to move up and get Okoro. Then our lineup will be way longer and tougher. Vuc, Aminu, Oubre, Okoro, and Fultz.

As expected, Orlando loses to the Bucks in the first round after an extremely frustrating and mediocre season. Now we look to the off-season where we retain the same team and draft a dark horse defense-first prospect (with length!) that won’t be ready for next season. Can’t wait!

I truly can not blame Cliff. He may not be a good coach but there is no talent on this team and he has gotten them to playoffs twice where other coaches have failed with basically the same roster. At some point you need to stop blaming the coach and start blaming those who have given him the roster.

The team has no star talent for god sakes.

Jeff Van Gundy on the Orlando Magic:

- “This may be the most limited offensive team in the playoffs that you’ve ever seen”

He's not wrong, and the players we're missing are hardly offensive juggernauts or high calibre shooters. FO has GOT to start focussing on offensive talent

Return to Orlando Magic
