Surely your not going to blame losing Van Gundy on Billy Donovan. The Magic could have made this a one day deal and moved on with life. Simply void the contract...how hard is that. The Magic (or at least their fans) seem prepared to blame every future ill that comes there way on Billy. Ridiculous.

The problem with the Magic is that the ownership -- Rich DeVos -- is a right-wing, fundy christian whack job who got rich with a shady pyramid scheme.(Amway)

Why would anybody want to be connected such villainous ilk?

Let the Magic die and be sold to a more realistic owner.

The Magic should have been going after SVG all along. SVG should have been THE first choice after Donovan. He is a great coach, and a class act. As a Heat fan, I would prefer him in SAC over Orlando.
That being said, Billy Donovan has nothing to do with Orlando losing SVG. Miami would have asked for compensation regardless. I wouldn't be shocked if Riley tries to package SVG and Jason Williams for Ron Artest--anything possible (and that would be quite interesting). If anything, Magic should have long voided the 3 day Billy contract if they were serious about persuing SVG. You snooze, you lose. GO GATORS! GO HEAT!

This whole thing is a crushing blow to any one in central FL, Gator fans too. Your boy signed a contract to chase another dream and yes MONEY. Ouch it hurts when our guy was chasing the buck. At this point I think the Magic owe it to their fans to tie Billy up for the next couple of years in legal proceedings. He cost us Ivaronie and now it's being reported that the little knuckle head cost us Stan too. I'm a life long Gator fan being born there and suffered a good case of pneumonia at the ripe ole age of 4 months in that sorry ass student housing called Flavet village # 1 unit 310D. That was 50 years ago you sorry Yankee transplant Gator fans. Our boy did wrong and as a magic fan ALSO, I am not ready to sweep that under the rug quite yet...

Right under our noses.
If you watched OTIS SMITH'S interview when he fired Brian Hill ,he said it's all about
WINNING And CHAMPIONSHIPS (so easy a caveman can do it)How about OTIS SMITH take the coaching job,if the
Magic don't win next season,_FIRE HIM.So far he's champion of the cluster f###k.
