anticipation (n.) - the act of looking forward; visualization of a future event or state
With the off-season winding down, it's time to start looking forward to training camp for the Orlando Magic, which will take place in roughly two weeks. For the past few months, general manager Otis Smith has been constructing a roster that many within the organization anticipate being better than last year's Finals team. The questions surrounding the new additions will remain unanswered until October 26th, when the defending Eastern Conference Champions begin the regular season at the Amway Arena (the building's last opening night) against the Philadelphia 76ers.
But before then, it is at the RDV SportsPlex where the foundation will be laid for what everyone around the City Beautiful is hoping for, another championship run.
