Losing in the NBA Finals isn't fun, but who would have thought the Orlando Magic would be playing basketball in June? Despite the many peaks and valleys during the season, Magic fans should be proud of how the team represented Orlando.
Tt was one doozy of a year. Here are some of the highlights:
- made NBA-record 23 three-pointers against Sacramento Kings.
- team had three All-Stars (Dwight Howard, Rashard Lewis, Jameer Nelson)
- Dwight Howard named Defensive Player of the Year
- Dwight Howard, All-NBA First Team
- Dwight Howard, All-Defensive First Team
- won 59 regular season games
- won Southeast Division Title
- won Eastern Conference Title
- played in NBA Finals
As my colleague stated early this morning, keep it tuned to 3QC throughout the summer for comprehensive Magic coverage. With Hedo Turkoglu's contract talks, player evaluations on the site, the 2009 Orlando Pro Summer League, training camp, and more, there should be plenty of news to cover & talk about during the off-season.
