Orlando still feels like home to J.J. Redick.
It sure felt that way Wednesday night as Redick's new team, the Los Angeles Clippers, faced Redick's first team, the Orlando Magic, at Amway Center.
The crowd gave Redick a loud ovation when public-address...

In another day and time, Magic fans knew them as The Franchise Wrecker, The Coach Killer, The Quitter and The Dwightmare.
But those bitter acrimonious days are over.

The Magic are the surprise story so far of the young NBA season.

For the Magic, the best news coming out of the Champions Classic — i.e. the NBA Lottery Preview Show — is that they can miss on landing Andrew Wiggins and still score in the draft.
Wiggins is considered the No. 1 prospect, but Jabari...

Maybe I’m just as delusional as Dwight Howard, but I wouldn’t totally reject the idea that the Magic could one day hang his No. 12 jersey from the rafters.
Who knows what might happen in, say, 2025?
You figure Dwight will play another 10...

If the Magic aren't retiring Dwight Howard's old No. 12, they certainly should be displaying it on the floor more.
If they've allowed Tobias Harris to wear the number, it needs to be seen from the opening tip and beyond.

With the Magic, less is more — more or less.
It's practically their slogan.
Fewer wins equals a greater chance to grab a big star in the draft (hello, Andrew Wiggins).
