Orlando Magic


Despite sharing a city with the most magical kingdom of all (albeit one ruled by a mouse), the Orlando Magic have only sporadically managed to live up to their name. The Magic joined the NBA in 1989, one year after their fellow Floridians and soon-to-be state rivals, the Miami Heat. The team spent their first four seasons floundering in the basement of the Eastern Conference, but then made one of the most-anticipated draft picks of all time, the massive powerhouse center Shaquille O’Neal. After winning Rookie of the Year in 1992-93, O’Neal was joined by Penny Hardaway, and the two stars went on to lead the Magic on a playoff run in 1996 that took them all the way to the NBA Finals. Unfortunately for the Magic, b had just returned from playing baseball and was in no mood for fairytale endings. The Chicago Bulls crushed the Magic in four straight games and O’Neal left for the Los Angeles Lakers the following season. The Magic remained a decent playoff team in the ensuing years until 2009, when the defensive arts of Dwight Howard saw them through to the franchise’s second NBA Finals. Again, they came up against tough opponents, falling to the Los Angeles Lakers four games to one. After an Eastern Conference Finals appearance the following year, a 4-2 series defeat at the hands of the Boston Celtics, the Magic seemed to lose their touch in the following decade, making just four playoffs appearances and never going past the First Round. Their past three seasons have been particularly dismal, finishing well outside the playoffs at 14th, 15th, and 13th in the Western Conference. This season, Orlando Magic fans will be hoping that young talents like 2022-23 Rookie of the Year Paolo Banchero and Anthony Black can pull a few rabbits out of hats in 2023-24 and get their team back into contention.
