Can't wait until season starts.

Last year was so depressing, with the talent we had. I believe coach Van Gundy will have players ready for each game this year.

Division is going to be much tougher this year. I can hear Tommy Heinson bragging already.

If Miami picks up Artest they will be tough...if they don't they go down the tubes.

Orlando will have their hands full for sure.

I can't wait either.... The Magic will do really good this year.

I don't think we need another big man. I think we need a SG. We also need to trade Hedo somewhere... I wish for an expiring contract, but I don't think the magic will do any more trades for now. I think Otis will pick it up before the dead line trade and ship Hedo and hopefully Garrity somewhere.

The Magic will be a good, maybe very good team next year. They have stars (Howard, Lewis) role players (Battie, Foyle, Ariza), and a good coach. Don't trade Hedo. When he is healthy he is a great asset for Howard...You can never have enough good shooters.

having dish network or direct tv is nice ..........anywhere else in the USA. Here in orlando "the thunderstorm capital of the world" your dish is usually down or cant get good signal. I tried it for a while out here in winter springs but it just didn't work for me. So looks like no magic games for me this year.....

I guess we got a big man...... Not the best but he is a solid Big. I sure hope we find another Shooting Guard before the season starts or we trade for one. The only reason i am for the Foyle signing is because he is a real physical player down low and the magic need that more than anything. We have scoring with DH and Rashard so we need some toughness and hopefully Foyle will bring his A game to Orlando next season.

Houston? whats good with this guy anyone know is he going to be a knick or is he lookin to land any place that he can? Man it would be nice to grab him some how

Most of their games are at 7:00 p.m., long after the thunderstorms have passed through. I love my DirecTV, but then I watch most of the home games from my seats in the lower bowl. I can't wait until the season starts!

because in the real world there is something called salary cap and in the world where salary cap comes in to play inorder for a trade to go through the league the salary between a player or players must match. and ron artest makes 7 million and bibby makes 14 million so that would be 21 million in salary between 2 players nelson makes 2 million still under the rookie salary turk makes 6 garrity makes 3.5 and dooling makes 4 so that only comes out to 15.5 million which is less than the 21 combined salary of artest and bibby and the second thing that is wrong with your post is that it is highly unrealistic even if the salary did match which it doesnt!

Trade Hedo and Nelson and a future 1st round pick for Mike Bibby. Put Ariza at the SG position. It's no way that Redrick can guard players like V. Carter, T. McGrady, Kobe, D. Wade, and even G. Hill. We talking about guards around 6'4 to 6'8. And Trevor is all 6'8 with long arms.
