For the first time since 2005/06, the Orlando Magic find themselves out of the postseason. They missed it by a mile, finishing with a 20-62 record, the league's worst.

Orlando's season is over, but the NBA marches onward. With the playoffs set to begin Saturday, now's an appropriate time to pose this question: which team are Magic fans supporting in the postseason?

Some choices are more obvious than others. Former Orlando fan-favorite J.J. Redick leads the Milwaukee Bucks against the Miami Heat, but Milwaukee doesn't stand much of a shot against the defending champions. Doc Rivers won Coach of the Year honors with Orlando more than a decade ago, and his Boston Celtics are set to take on the New York Knicks.

Of course, Magic fans don't necessarily have to support a team with a player or coach who has Orlando ties. The Denver Nuggets, for example, are one of the league's most fun and exciting teams, and they stand a decent chance of advancing deep into the postseason.

Which team has your support and attention now?
