Maybe i am the biggest of homers but that looks like a playoff team to me..... We add our frp, maybe trade bulls frp and Ross for some upgrade.....


Definitely homer talk because that team is bad


Propably not, but in the east ?
Harris was a starter on fringe contender and if healthy should enter his prime. Last year his return transformed Nuggets against Jazz.
Porter was starter on home court advantage playoff team as 23 y.o. His prime so far was destroyed by injuries and awful Bulls team.
Isaac was starter on fringe playoff team even before his massive jump in development last year.
Carter started on fringe playoff team in the east despite his young age, bad coaching and injuries.

Yes i know all of them were 3rd options on their teams but they were also so young. We need first option to contend thats for sure, but i would not be suprised if we at least make the play in next year. Health is major concern but if we get lucky for once ? Look what Memphis is doing. I am very interested in our matchup.


Just like when you called Aminu a solid starter not even that long ago.. This team is literally constructed to be bad IMO

Gary Harris and OPJ aren’t “third options” in the year 2021 ..maybe third options on a bench unit

There are 29 other teams in the league, the bar for a quality starter is a bit higher than you’re making it out to be IMO

Aminu was solid defensive forward before injury there is nothing to discuss there. Portland defense fell of a cliff without him. Its obvious he wont be good coming of year long injury.

Harris and Porter were third options even before their primes. They are not right now only becouse of injuries not becouse of their talent level. I am not even saying they are contender level starters ( although you can argue Harris was in Denver). I am saying they can be solid starters on eastern team.

That’s not a playoff team.

That’s a terrific bench.

Not that we have been discussing the magic number for the Magic, but with Orlando's loss, this team is officially eliminated from the playoffs. The two-year playoff streak is thus over.

Absolutely, if I’m going to loss on first round I prefer rather to be a complete disaster and get a top draft pick.
Never understood what’s the point of getting to the playoffs when everybody knows that your are goin’ to get blown by any decent team.

Don't teams get some kind of extra money from the league based on making the playoffs and how far they get or something along those lines? It's also at least 2 more home games to profit from.

This is seriously some 50IQ front office work... honestly kind of hope we suck forever and the franchise gets sold at this point. We deserve it. Let me move on from this embarrassment of a team. Move us to Seattle or Vegas for the love of god.

And-1

Brazdeikis was signed on 2 May, and in game 1 he goes +18 in his plus/minus (he looked like cotton-white Flame)
Orlando started a rookie PG and had a G-leaguer play 30 minutes in backup.
A "project" two-year guard backed up the starting SG.
Bacon started.

Ross, Okeke, Carter-Williams, and Ennis were benched for injuries they could all play with.
There is nothing else management can do to Tank.

Coach and he players play to win. Now and always.

yep, players dont tank. And coaches dont really tank either, because those losses go on their permanent record.

Return to Orlando Magic
