    Sep 29, 2010, 6:01 PM EST

    The Magic brought Jason Williams back to provide some extra depth at point guard, but he won’t be doing that for a while. Williams is going to have arthroscopic left knee surgery tomorrow and will be out until right around the start of the season, Stan Van Gundy told the media today (as tweeted by…

  2. Dwight Howard's children's album about to hits stores. Whoomp There It Is.

    Sep 29, 2010, 11:44 AM EST

    You know how you’ve always wanted to explain to your young son or daughter the joy of hearing “Whoomp There It Is” through the arena sound system during the timeout of an NBA game? No? Then what about “Let’s Get It Started?” “U Can’t Touch This?” Now Dwight Howard has come to your rescue. He…

  3. NBA Season Preview: Orlando Magic

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:08 PM EST

    Last season: 59-23, the second seed in the East. In the playoffs they Magic swept past the Bobcats and Hawks before running into the buzz saw that was the Celtics and losing in the Eastern Conference Finals. Head Coach: Stan Van Gundy, one of the best going and probably funnier than his brother. Key Departures:…

  4. Orlando believe 12 is better than three when it comes to Miami Heat

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:07 PM EST

    If you like messin’ with Sasquatch, then go to an Orlando Magic practice and start asking questions about the Miami Heat. Pretty much the same reaction. Orlando general manager Otis Smith led the “hey, maybe they should play a game before we anoint them” cries, as reported by FanHouse. “They’ve got three, and we’re solid…

  5. Yao Ming may skip first Rockets preseason game

    Sep 25, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Yao Ming is impatient — he wants back on the court. Badly. But after 18 months away from the game and a complex foot surgery he doesn’t want another setback. So he may miss the first preseason game (or more) he told the Houston Chronicle. “When I was playing some scrimmage with some of the…

  6. Magic draft pick Daniel Orton may need surgery

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:45 PM EST

    The Magic don’t really need another center right now — the Dwight Howard guy is working out pretty well — but they took a smart risk drafting that other guy out of Kentucky, Daniel Orton. But it is going to be a while until we see if that risk pays off — Orton may need…

  7. Dwight Howard would rather have Kevin Durant than LeBron James on his team

    Sep 22, 2010, 7:11 PM EST

    Magic center Dwight Howard recently sat down for an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Dan Patrick. During the course of it, Patrick asked Dwight Howard who he’d rather have as a teammate — Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder or LeBron James of the Miami Heat. After hesitating briefly, Howard went with Durant, who’s fresh…

  8. Malik Allen rounds out Magic roster, camp

    Sep 16, 2010, 1:28 PM EST

    Malik Allen is going to have a 10th NBA season, apparently. The Orlando Magic have inked him to a deal for this season. He will report to camp with the Magic and rounds out their roster at 15. Financial terms not officially released, but you can pencil in vet minimum deal. Allen played in Denver…

  9. Stan Van Gundy fires back at Pat Riley's verbal retaliation

    Sep 12, 2010, 9:22 AM EST

    I’m pretty sure we’ve got a bonafide war of words on our hands. Stan Van Gundy responded Saturday to Pat Riley’s comments about himself and Magic GM Otis Smith and their criticism of the Heat. In an interview with the Magic’s website, Van Gundy laughed at what he considers to me a double-standard with Riley.…

  10. Dwight Howard has become "7- foot-tall bottle of medicine" for woman fighting cancer

    Sep 8, 2010, 1:58 PM EST

    Kay Kellogg has it a lot tougher than Dwight Howard. Kellogg doesn’t have Shaq and the Celtics or the Miami Heat to worry about. But she has cancer. Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma, and it is incurable. She is also an Orlando Magic season ticket holder whose one wish was to meet Dwight Howard. Recently that…

  11. Adonal Foyle gets front office job with Magic

    Sep 7, 2010, 10:05 PM EST

    Adonal Foyle was about as beloved as an NBA journeyman can be. Because he was a lot more than that. Foyle was active in philanthropy, part of the players union and just a renaissance man in the world of basketball. Media, fans, teammates, everybody loved him. When he retired last month people hated to see…

  12. Magic get building sponsor — for their parking garage

    Sep 2, 2010, 10:55 AM EST

    The Orlando Magic will play in the brand-spankin’-new Amway Arena this season. If you go to a game there, you will park in the new Geico parking structure — yes, Orlando has secured a sponsorship for their parking garage. Seriously. Sports Business Journal has the story (via TrueHoop’s twitter feed). The insurance firm signed a…

  13. Report: Allen Iverson linked to the Hornets and Magic

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:10 PM EST

    UPDATE 1:10 PM: Marc Stein of ESPN.com refuted part of the initial report via Twitter. Stein says he has “been assured Hornets have not/will not express interest in Iverson.” No confirmation if the same is true for the Magic as of yet. 10:59 AM: According to Sam Amico of NBA.com, the New Orleans Hornets and…

  14. Adonal Foyle retires, but he has a long journey ahead

    Aug 17, 2010, 8:45 AM EST

    According to Brian Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Adonal Foyle has decided to retire. That’s not “Magic center Adonal Foyle,” or “twelve-year veteran Adonal Foyle,” even if he happens to be both of those things. Rather, the NBA’s most renowned renaissance man, one of its most inquisitive minds, and one if its most philanthropic individuals…

  15. Bollywood basketball in the rain — all we need is Dwight Howard

    Aug 5, 2010, 10:30 PM EST

    Hey, are you like, checkin’ me out? Dwight Howard is headed to India to promote the NBA in a country where basketball is the sport you play as a child, until you grow up and play cricket like real men. Unless it is a sexy basketball scene in the rain, then Bollywood is good with…

  16. Can the Heat be beat inside?

    Aug 5, 2010, 12:15 PM EST

    Nobody is going to be better than the Miami Heat at the two, three and four spots. But picture them playing Orlando. Jameer Nelson has the ball (guarded by Mario Chalmers) and Dwight Howard (covered by Joel Anthony) comes out to set the high pick. That is a hard-to-stop P&R combo for any team, and…

  17. Jason Williams set to re-up with Orlando, securing a three-deep PG rotation

    Aug 3, 2010, 1:36 PM EST

    UPDATE 1:36 PM: According to Tim Povtak of NBA FanHouse, Williams’ deal with the Magic will be a one-year affair for the veteran minimum ($1.36 million). 11:24 AM: Jason Williams was a fine backup for the Magic last season, albeit one who completely disappeared in the playoffs; his three-point shooting percentage dropped from .380 to…

  18. Ryan Anderson isn't messing around this summer

    Jul 31, 2010, 7:30 PM EST

    Ryan Anderson was considered a throw-in in the Vince Carter deal for the Magic last summer. A promising power forward with some range that would make a nice end-of-the bench guy. But those in the know recognized that Anderson wasn’t only tall with promising rebounding numbers (19% rebounding rate- percentage of all available rebounds obtained),…

  19. All of a sudden, Dwight Howard is the voice of reason

    Jul 31, 2010, 2:25 PM EST

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has never been accused of being the coolest cucumber in the refrigerator. He’s generally considered a silly young buck. But in a recent interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he showed a tremendous amount of perspective regarding how teams build themselves for the playoffs, and the treacherous nature of building…

  20. Orlando Magic keeping Stan Van Gundy, Otis Smith around a few more years

    Jul 28, 2010, 10:48 AM EST

    Bombs away, Orlando. The system of Dwight Howard in the paint and host of guys chucking up threes around him is not going anywhere soon — the Orlando Magic have extended the contracts of coach Stan Van Gundy and General Manager Otis Smith through 2013, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Smith is now the president…

  21. Dwight Howard on the Heat: "They're not going to be the best team in the NBA next year"

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:27 AM EST

      Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have been sharing notes in class, apparently. No shock that the top teams — led by the top competitors — see what happened in Miami and want to take it on. There’s no shortage of people around the league that want to knock the Heat down a notch or…

  22. Summer Lovin', featuring Kobe Bryant and Matt Barnes

    Jul 26, 2010, 12:44 PM EST

    Matt Barnes has an incredible tendency to get on his opponents’ nerves, and it’s easy to understand why. Barnes never stops talking. He’s no stranger to the hard foul or the occasional cheap shot. He holds, he pushes, he yaps, and he plays hard. That’s not the kind of thing that makes for an ideal…

  23. LeBron's rooting interest in the Chris Paul ordeal. Also, Freemasonry.

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:45 AM EST

    If we’ve learned anything from free agency this summer, it’s that NBA superstars are a part of some secret, underground, Freemason-esque society. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh have been conspiring to team up for the last 15 years, and only now, with all of the planets in perfect alignment in their orbits and…

  24. Chris Paul may want to go to the Magic, but a trade to Orlando looks fairly improbable

    Jul 26, 2010, 10:38 AM EST

    It’s easy to understand why Chris Paul would want to play for the Orlando Magic. Stan Van Gundy may be more demanding than most coaches, but he produces winning teams that dominate defensively. There’s also a guy there named Dwight Howard, and most online forum commenters seem to think he’s pretty good. The Magic could…

  25. Chris Paul has a Magic preference

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:01 PM EST

    After Chris Paul’s list of places he’d like to be traded to came out, the natural response was to seek out a preference of Paul, the Hornets, and King of Mardis Gras. Just as it was with LeBron, only without any sort of leverage on the part of the player, every city of fans believe…
