Nothing short of time travel probably could have changed the solemn mood that trailed behind the Orlando Magic as they walked into the Wachovia Center to meet Philadelphia Saturday night. Full Story

Drew Gooden just got waived by the Kings.

NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME to bolster our front court with a TRUE power forward. Gooden is a very physical player down low and a consistent rebounder. If Otis Smith is in his right frame of mind, he should waste no time getting him and put soft & sweet Lewis back to his natural position of small forward and let Turk come off the bench. This move will solidify our bench and fix our PF problem with minimal money involved.

It is not his fault. When you double up on Howard someone is left open and Philly decided they would leave him open. It worked for 3 quarters and then WHAM, he began hitting his shots. I remember one time they did not even bother guarding him and he had like 5 seconds to aim and shoot a 3. He missed it and was wide open the rest of the game. With the Magic its choose your poison. You will see this in the playoffs also. I hope C Lee comes through for us.
Don't get me wrong...I know he is a great kid and great future ahead of him...but I think when you are down by 13 and he was 1-9 and still jacking up shots afters shots.....I think that is when you penetrate and get into the lane or give it to somebody who can.
I just dont think that was wise at all.
We are simply not talking about it too much because couple went in at the end.
Hopefully this will boost his confidence but I would like him to penetrate more and be aggressive.
I really dont see him as a shooter....He shouldnt be getting into that mode just because everybody else is.
I think he is much more than that.

This is an emergency. Brian Schmitz, please call the Magic Emergency Hotline and tell our GM that our former Magic player Drew Gooden is now available for signing. This is a matter of life and death for this team's playoff hopes.

Not only is he a banger he looks real wicked too with that goatee.

Welcome to the world of a rookie :) If I was a coach that is who I would pick on. Pietrus injuries are hurting us in more ways than one.

Nah, it was good for him to keep shooting. The reason why he shot so much was because he was left wide open. It's not like he's rafer alston, lee can actually make shots. He's a 42% 3pt shooter and has probably been the most consistent shooter from the perimeter this year (lewis and turk have been streaky). Lee usually makes his wide open shots. It was obviously a good idea to keep shooting because he eventually came around. Someone with a good shot isn't going to miss for 4 straight qtrs. He's not like Lewis, lee seems to have a high amount of confidence and doesn't get phased so easily. Sorry, but i think you were listening too much to the commentators... who were recommending for lee to drive and not shoot. He is more than just a shooter, but when a shooter is left open that much, passing it up would be foolish.
