Where The Magic Show Happens

In case you're curious about what in heaven's name the Orlando Magic players are up to when they start breakdancing, clapping, throwing down ridiculous dunks, and generally being silly just a few minutes before tipoff of each game, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel has you covered. It's the Magic Show.

Actually, "The Magic Show" provides more of a look through the keyhole into a team's psyche as a rising title contender.

The Magic are supremely confident after reaching the NBA Finals last June and proving their breakthrough ride was no fluke this season, posting the league's second-best record.

With their mix of colorful personalities and high-wire performers --- [Dwight] Howard and [Vince] Carter are former slam-dunk champs; [Jason] Williams all but channels Pistol Pete Maravich --- their role as league-wide entertainers comes naturally.

They give you the sense of a veteran club that feels it has earned a license to put on a show, too. And they are all business once the monkey business is over.

Fox Sports Florida has video of the most recent Magic Show here. Though it's hard to pick a favorite element, I'd have to say Mickael Pietrus getting down with Anthony Johnson takes top honors.
