I know this sort of post has been done before, but I was watching a youtube video of Orlando vs Chicago from back in 1989 and it got me wondering about all these old players on that first team. Then it got me wondering about what would the best starting five would be of Magic players all time. I was thinking about limiting it to players who were in their prime when playing for the Magic. Then the first question that popped into my head was Dwight or Shaq? Now that is a tough question, if you were assembling an All-Time Orlando First Team, who would your starting five be? See mine after the jump:
g. Anfernee Hardaway - Sooooo much talent, it wasn't even fair.
g. Tracy McGrady - Soooooo much talent, it felt like everything he shot was going in.
f. Horace Grant - Finally, a player for the Magic that would do the dirty work.
f. Rashard Lewis - The perfect complement to Grant, could make the inside outside offense look easy.
c. Shaquille O'Neal - I don't like Shaq, but you cannot argue because his scoring ability was just ridiculous.
g. Scott Skiles - All time single game assists record, great decision maker, pure point guard.
g. Nick Anderson - Up until recently, the all time scoring leader.
f. Bo Outlaw - The only other power forward that comes close to Grant, defensively, imho.
f. Ryan Anderson - He's new, but he is killing it this year.
c. Dwight Howard - Better defender than Shaq, but has never quite refined his offensive skill set in comparison.
