February 21st, 2013 at 7:44 PM
It's going to take a while to get used to writing "former Orlando Magic shooting guard J.J. Redick," but Magic fans are going to have to suck it up and move on, despite the fact that an excellent 3-point shooter will now be taking his talents to the Milwaukee Bucks. It...

February 20th, 2013 at 3:26 PM
Just a few weeks ago, I voiced my displeasure with the fact that Orlando Magic shooting guard J.J. Redick was left out of the 2013 Foot Locker Three-Point Contest, which he has deserved to be in for several years. As such, I have decided that it's never too early to start...

The field for the 2013 Foot Locker Three-Point Contest at All-Star Weekend has now been announced by the NBA and — surprise, surprise — Orlando Magic shooting guard J.J. Redick isn't in it.

October 25th, 2012 at 11:33 PM

Orlando Magic Guard Jameer Nelson’s Poor Play Related to Dwight Howard Trade Talk
January 22nd, 2012 at 11:03 AM
It was only a matter of time until this story came out. Jameer Nelson's play has been sub-par so far this season, especially his normally consistent jump shot. Nelson and star center, Dwight Howard, have been tight since they became teammates after the Magic acquired them in the 2004 NBA Draft. Howard has openly stated that he would like to play...

JJ Goes Redick-ulous on the Houston Rockets for the Orlando Magic
December 27th, 2011 at 6:26 PM
Dwight Howard has been asking for help for years from the Orlando Magic, and maybe, just maybe, it's been right under his nose. Quite possibly, literally, right under his nose. 6'4" JJ Redick barely comes up to Dwight Howard's shoulders, so you can forgive Dwight if he hasn't exactly seen eye to eye with JJ, but JJ just might...

Orlando Magic Guard Jason Richardson Guard Surprisingly Resigns
December 10th, 2011 at 10:56 PM
***PHOTO1*** The NBA has been nothing but strange since it has resumed action from the dreaded NBA Lockout. Chris Paul was initially traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, but then was blocked by the NBA. Dwight Howard asked to be traded by our beloved Orlando Magic. But perhaps the strangest of news since the start of the NBA free agency period happened today.  ESPN reports that Jason Richardson has resigned...
