sure about that?
Next year is going to be a bit different, just like it was when we had a starting line up, but hey if it makes you happy to be this type of poster, go for it!

Sure some people dislike Cole's percieved personality, but it'll help his brand.

I watched Detroit's broadcast and nearly the whole pregame show was about Cole. It was like they were going up against prime Steve Nash.

Help his brand? LOL :lol:

So much disgust. Our priorities are all wrong.

That's what you need sometimes to get your team on the map. Maybe get a few more national TV games and possibly better free agents who want to play on that stage.

I want us to lose as much as possible right now.

But in no way I can be mad at Cole, a guy who gives it all every night, for winning us some of those end of the season games. Come on guys, when was the last time we had a rookie, or a player at all, who seemed to be that amazed playing for the Magic and getting **** done.

He has a competitive mindset and the confidence to be a difference maker. If he can be one in the future, we will see, but we have to appreciate having a dog like him as a rookie on our team. Love his personality, which is emotionally raw but honest. You can't seriously don't like that guy, and I hope he reaches some higher levels in the next years.

This is a reveal into his true character. He thinks he's better than he is. He thinks he's a star. He couldn't be more wrong about himself. He feels like it's his responsibility and his right is his to jack up shots.

He thinks he's an alpha but he doesn't have the game to be an alpha. That's terrible.

I mean considering what T Ross throws up on the regular it’s par for the course with cole don’t you think?

Drafting Cole is the best thing to happen to the Magic since drafting Dwight. I am excited for the future. Haters going to hate.

There's a lot like about Cole, but we're not even out the starting blocks as far as his career is concerned. Best we can do is support him but we really need to learn to take a step back as a fanbase and just let things play out, to enjoy the ride and not assume to know the destination.

Maturity level: fighting on twitter he won't let team down and won't tank. Than look at standings and see 21-44 record.
It will be fun in few years when we draft some projected role player and Jalen Green turns into 25 ppg to read comments how career backup Cole Anthony had army of fanboys that tried to convice themselfs that he will "lead" Orlando because it's "his town" :lol:

#MoralVictories2018Again
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

To be clear, I am much more enthusiastic about Fultz than Anthony. In particular, Fultz can be an elite Pick and Roll player. That is an NBA skill. Anthony for me looks like he could become a really good back-up so far.

I have higher hopes for Fultz than Cole as irrational as it may sound too
