The Orlando Magic made former player Bo Outlaw a Community Ambassador yesterday. Here's the press release:

Outlaw will join Nick Anderson as community ambassador and take part in a variety of community outreach efforts.

Among his initial efforts, Outlaw will take part in the Magic's check presentation to the New Image Youth Center, 212 South Parramore Ave., Orlando, 32805 on Thursday, March 6 from 3:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Outlaw also will visit with the children at the facility. Anderson will be on hand as well.

Outlaw spent six-plus seasons (360 games-222 starts) with the Magic from 1997-2001 and 2005-07. He ranks on the Magic's all-time career lists in blocked shots (2nd, 536), rebounds (5th, 2,160), steals (7th, 401) and games played (9th, 358).

It's hard to find anything negative to say about Bo. Even as his skills declined, he always played hard. And in his prime, he was actually a damn good glue-guy. Look at his 1997-1998 stats: 9.5 points, 7.8 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.2 blocks on 55% shooting. Outstanding. He's one of only four Magic players to record two triple-doubles in their Orlando careers, joining Scott Skiles, Penny Hardaway, and Tracy McGrady.

I won't be surprised if Pat Garrity joins Nick and Bo in the Community Relations department sometime this summer. The Magic will probably extend a job offer to Darrell Armstrong once he hangs 'em up, but I suspect Flash would rather pursue a career in coaching.

Congratulations, Bo, and thanks for all you've done for this team and for this city.
