Kyle Hightower of the Orlando Sentinel has some details on how the Orlando Magic plan to celebrate their 20th season. Chris D'Orso, the Magic's V.P. of Marketing, told Hightower the following:
"This campaign embodies the history that has prepared us for today and the great moments to come. Every game, every play, every moment really is history in the making."
- At the end of this local-politics piece, Scott Maxwell, also of the Orlando Sentinel, has a brief note on Jameer Nelson's wedding, which took place last weekend.
- Fred Kerber of the New York Post says Keyon Dooling is the New Jersey Nets' most coveted free-agency target. Dooling played himself out of Orlando's price range, and the Nets might not be able to land him either unless they trade one of their surplus power forwards. Can the Magic execute a sign-and-trade with the Nets? That's a question I'd like to have answered, because Sean Williams is a shot-blocking machine. (Hat tip: NetsDaily)
- Another potential trade partner, at least in the minds of Magic fans, is Memphis. The Grizzlies have a bevy of point guards who could capably back-up Nelson. The web's best Grizzlies blog, 3 Shades of Blue, argues the team shouldn't trade any of its point guards.
