Magic lose but all Magic fans seem to care about is that The Magic now have the 3rd worst record in the league via Detroit's win tonight. The Top-4 Lottery drawing will be all about luck but the higher position will help if The Magic don't draw a Top-4 pick. Regardless, I want a top-4 Pick.

Well if AD was as good as people make him out to be, then this wouldnt be an issue, unfortunately hes a secondary star and cant even do **** against a minor league team like us
Obviously he's not going to be 100% yet.

This isnt new
He was a loser all those years in NO as well and befor anyone starts, he DID have help and had plenty of good teammates, hes just not a guy who can win as a focal point

My favorite kind of night.

We were competitive, lost, and took over the 3rd best draft odds from Detroit.

He played really well the last time they played. The Lakers announcer said, he looked like a seasoned vet.

And with the wolves looking good lately, we could end up at 2 by the end of the season. That would give us an 80% chance at a top 5 pick. Finishing 3rd would drop that likelihood to 67%.

Minn is up at half vs the jazz.....They have looked good lately, maybe we can actually pass them for 2nd soon(we will have the same amount of wins if they win today, but have less losses)

Still im worried about the thunder, they seriously wont win another game this season and are now openly tanking with moves like shuitting down horford and sga

Officially 3rd worst odds now. We need to try and keep that or get to #2 spot. We aren't gonna catch the rockets but the closer we can get to them the better it is to keep the magic in the top 5. That's my only thing I want to stay in the top 5. Obviously I want Cade but I'm not gonna die over not getting but I will be pissed if we don't get a top 5 pick.

I don't know why AD didn't drag him into the post. I thought AD was going to go off against Chuma, but that first half was just about perfect from Chuma. That was a really impressive performance.

i wouldnt be happy at 5, or even 4. To me, theres 3 superstars in this draft and if we dont get Green, Cade or Suggs, it will be a very sad day

Mobley is fine but centers take too long to develop and really with how the NBA works, centers arent really that important anymore. And i dont see it with kuminga. I really dont understand the hype at all

I wouldnt say "all we care about".

I like seeing Cole with assist and not a 6-16 night shooting. Chuma had a bounce back night. Bamba getting rebounds and not having a 1-6 night.

hard to tell only from box scores, but those 3 things are better than they used to be

I think there are a lot of teams who will pick Mobley 2nd if they end up there.

Don't expect the Magic to be one of them, but I think there's a strong chance the Magic could still get one of the guys they really want even if they end up 4th.

I can semi agree but I'm a bit higher on kuminga then a lot of others. He has tools but us magic fans have suffered with guys that need to learn how to shot so I can see why a lot woukd be weary

With Mobley I dont want him on the team cause of fit but everything is pointing to being a quality big man. He reminds me a bit of Jaren Jackson. Not sure how they woukd proceed if he was drafted but he has talent I just dont like his fit on the magic.

I'm all for Cade, green or Suggs though. We need elite talent at the guard spot. That's without question.
