Jeremy Lin is their third string PG and he would start for us.

Will be an interesting offseason. The WeHam administration will be judged in the future by the direction they decide to go in. Hopefully if Alex Martins doesn't influence things we might be ok. If Martins has greater clout then expect Vuc and Ross to be resigned, eating up our cap and us having another 4-5 years of more disappointing finishes whether in late lottery or first round exits.
I love the Magic!

It's disappointing to see the season end but it was always great to break the playoff drought/see The Magic take a game.

The season after the Markelle Fultz deal was a lot of fun especially those wins during the stretch run like the back to back over Philly and Miami.

There are good things to look forward too with Fultz and Bama, the Continued development of AG/JI. Big free agent decisions (Vucevic/Ross) ahead and I think they will get a good player at #16. While it is sad to see the season end, the future is Magic.

Congrats on a great season guys. First time ever we've played a team in the playoffs that didn't have players i want to punch in the face. Good luck in the offseason/next season

Way to make a little run to make the final score look more respectable. Would be nice to break a hundred.

There's no difference to me.

Winning and losing is the ultimate black and white scenario to me. Doesn't matter if you win by 1 or 100 or visa versa. It all counts the exact same.

Things like player progression and development have a lot more subtleties and shades of gray.

This is going to be a tremendously interesting offseason to see what Weltman and Hammond decide to do.

I have a feeling I know what they're going to attempt to do, but there's a possibility they could go the total opposite direction.

Yep I liked seeing that too. Get this man some more talent please and not let him waste away like he did with the Hornets.

I'd have a look at Vuc's final stats for the series (and to a lesser degree Evan and Ross), but I don't watch horror movies right before going to sleep

Goodnight

Hats off to the team. I appreciate their effort and fight throughout the season. 17 game win improvement without many roster upgrades and 42 wins overall is nothing to sneeze at. We always knew the playoffs would be tough sledding, especially with 33 combined games of playoff experience on this roster. But, you have to start somewhere and I'm glad everyone was able to have this experience. The team will come back better for it.

Welp. Decent season.

Accomplished more than I thought we would. Isaac and AG look promising, we acquired a possible point guard in Fultz, Vuc showed his worth in the playoffs, and Clifford proved to be a solid coach. Here’s looking forward to 2019-2020. :party:

Yes we got crushed in the last 4, but I am proud of this team no matter what. If for no reason other than they provided me with the most exciting basketball season I have experienced in 7 years.

I don't think any other team in the east top 5 or 6 would have done this against the Magic. We seen how good we can be, but we have holes and in need of talent. Fultz, Bamba, and the 16th pick along with Isaac and AG....Love what we have for our future![/quote

No, think it would have been the same result with Boston, Tor, or Philly, lol.



You are mistaken, this Raptor team is a level notch above those teams you have mentioned. Magic would have lost the series maby to Boston or Bucks, but not like the way Raptors have done to the Magic. Either way, I stand by what i said, dominance against the Magic no top team in the east would have done this to the Magic. Raptors is the real deal.
