A random logic 2: Anagrams for Orlando Magic’s newcomers

New, comments

We are so, so sorry for these.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Orlando Magic Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Barring an unexpected trade or free-agent signing, the Orlando Magic’s offseason appears to be over. New front-office heads Jeff Weltman and John Hammond brought to Orlando two NBA Draft picks and four free agents. With some assistance from the Internet Anagram Server, let’s welcome the newcomers to Orlando with a bit of wordplay.

Note that for two of these players it was necessary for me to incorporate their middle names.

If this former Florida State Seminole visited a popular Mexican affair on Washington Street and witnessed it being robbed by villains from the Daredevil television show, he might exclaim, “Aha! Taco ninjas!”

In keeping with the theme of food mistreatment, this former Utah Jazz point guard could shout “Milch Knaves!” were he to see a band of ne’er-do-wells harming a cow.

When this Kansas State product makes a mess of his Gotta Have It™ but still manages to eat the whole thing, he might say, “Whew! Unwieldy sundaes!”

If this Olympiacos standout missed some shots really badly in the former home of the Charlotte Hornets, there’d be brick harm at the ex-Hive.

One wonders if, when he is introduced for the first time since returning to the Magic, this veteran swingman will hear the roar of all fans at Amway Center. *

*: yes, this one is recycled from the first edition of A random logic. No, I’m not sorry.

If the Magic were to cover every Amway Center seat with t-shirts as a giveaway item, and their veteran reserve big man observed during his pre-tip routine as the arena operations crew prepared them all, he would see shirts pregame.
