Why did the press conference take place before a backdrop of Orlando Magic and Amway logos? That is so tacky. Is Billy Donovan also working for Amway? Hey, I hear that Billy is a great recruiter, so maybe over the summer he could do some recruiting for Blackwater.

I'm not a Gator fan. Can't stand them but I am a Billy fan. This is a young team and he will teach and bring them to the next level. If you think it won't work, you are blinded for other reasons. This is going to work out well.

Oh big surprise, coming from someone who obviously can't stand diversity in our society, much less sports. You suck, racist pig!

I think it is great for Donovan to come to the Magic. Good luck team!

Well you have it now: You have gone from the best college basketball organization in the USA where you had total control to the worst Organization in the NBA where you have virtually no control, bad players and a terrible front office that has their minds in outer space. Hang in there pretend that you like it for 2 years, let them fire you and take the remaining 3 years and sit back and have a few beers on some island. After all they will still owe you $16.5million (3times 5.5 million). Anyway the Magic will get the new arena, at the tax payers expense, the value of the franchise will perhaps double so it is a good deal for the owner! Two years from now after the Magic are done with you perhaps you can go to Europe and coach and enjoy life!

Well, I see the Magic continue their tradition of making mistakes, Donovan in the NBA. What a joke! He will follow the fate of Pitino, Montgomery, and etc., in other words a failure. The Magic management has to be one of the worst in the NBA! The want to sell seats, and Donovan is richer than he was, other than that this is not significant in the world of basketball.
I think Donovan should play JJ, therefore we can now all have the opportunity to observe another wasted draft choice!

I bet that you like you friend that is the guard on the Magic: The only team in the NBA that he would be able to play on! If I were Donovan: Aroayal (SP) would be the first to be traded!

No way you have to have talent in the NBA: It is not like college, not even close: Look at Detroit and look at the Magic, not even 10% close! Never will be, extremely bad fron office, for one thing!He will make it 2 years and the get fired and blamed for everyting just watch!

What's stronger? Bill's coaching ability or the Magic's doomed administration? Give it a year and don't build that new arena yet.

Sentinel sports reporters, listen up! Since last week, when B-Hill was fired, and today with the hiring of Donovan, I've yet to read an comments from Magic players. That's shabby reporting. Do us a favor and do your jobs right.

One more time you are wrong.
Arroyo was a starter in Utha and have more playing time in Detroit than in Orlando. Arroyo is a good backup but Orlando needs a starter.
