I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt because the nuggets fans claimed he was just injured but I've plenty of nuggets games and never was impressed.
He's my favorite player right now!

He has so much improving just to get there though. He has the physical tools to be a good defender but the game seems to move too fast for him on both sides of the court.

I don't want to jinx it but we might not win another game as long as we don't go against a team that rolls out a near complete g-league team against us.

It was fast for Danny as well early in his career. RJ will definitely need to work on his body in the offseason along with doing a ton of film study so he can process the NBA game much better. Hopefully with that combined with on court experience, he will be a positive role player for the Magic.

Harris is very solid defensively but asking him to do more than he is capable of offensively has him looking scrubby out there. This is good for the tank though.

McDermott sunk that in there on Mo. He always plays well against us.

Cole has played well offensively today but he can't stay in front of anyone on defence which opens up a lot of drive and kicks for Indy.

Gives me the DJ/Jameer vibes. We need him to improve his defense.

Another loss but all of our thoughts are with Devin Cannady tonight.

Just a couple of weeks and this season will finally be over and we can start focusing on improving this franchise.

How do you get blown out in a game where you shoot 28 free throws and only turn it over 6 times.

Nevermind, forget I asked.

As trash as we are right now, the 6 turnovers has got to be close to a franchise record. I don't care enough to look it up though.
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.

But unlike meer/dj he actually has the height and athleticism to be good on D. I think he is just too weak and.puny body-wise right now. Need to muscle up more.

Still only in the 1st half since I watch on FoxSportsGo and want to watch without commercials, but I won't complain about Bamba for this game for sure due to the great character he showed during the horrific Cannady injury.

Poor Cannady. I actually like him a lot on the court and hope we can continue to keep him and try to develop him for a few years at least. But that injury was terrible and hope he can recover and is doing well.

Prayers for Cannady, hopefully this won’t be the end of his career. We’ve seen Paul George, Hayward, & Kevin Ware recover to play basketball again on bone breaks. The Magic need to take care of him.

Mo Bamba is a good dude. Always seemed like a fun hang. Much better person than player, and that's a good thing.

off the top of my head, I think the record is 3 turnovers. Someone please fact check me.

Another game that outcome was clear around after 2 and half quaters. If people think this is how "development" looks like... lol i can't even.
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.

I feel so bad for Devin Cannady. I hope we stick by him and still help him out with money. He finally made it to NBA and now his career might be over
