Magic fans, welcome to Heart & Hustle, Part 2. Remember the 1999-2000 season? It was Operation Rebuild, otherwise known as Thanks, Shaq, For Nothing. A dozen years later…it’s Operation Rebuild, The Sequel, otherwise known as Thanks, Dwight,...

The years have not been kind to Tracy McGrady, once a two-time scoring champion with the Magic. He played well in the Atlanta Hawks' rout Friday night of his old team, and differently. His knee and body will no longer permit him to be a highlight film. He...

The NBA will open the regular season on Tuesday, a prediction you couldn't have made last season at this time.
Actually, I don't think anybody would object to playing another 66-game season. Well, the owners would. They'd play 106 if they could get...

Is it worth it to be an Orlando Magic fan?

Sadly it was deja-booooooo all over again.
Just as it was 15 years ago when Orlando Magic fans booed Shaq upon his return to Central Florida. Just as it was 13 years ago when Penny Hardaway got booed upon his return to Central Florida. Just as it was...

The Magic are in the midst of one of their all-time losing ruts, and they've again lost Glen Davis. They need to shut down Big Baby for the season and develop their young'uns, turning to 2013-14.
Wish I had some brighter news, but it likely will get...

The NBA's Hot Stove League is heating up, but the trade winds mostly leave players cold. With the Feb. 21 deadline looming, it is an uncomfortable time of year.
J.J. Redick's name has been bandied about. You can't blame J.J. for wondering if he might...

This just in: The Rolling Stones announced they are holding out Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ron Wood for next Saturday's concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. They're old and tired, and have been on the road forever, you see.

Here's a sentence that was never, ever written in the last eight years:
The Magic's starting center is on pace to average more than 70 percent at the free-throw line.
