Official Orlando Magic Schedule (‘11-‘12)

If you’ve been living under a rock, then you know by now that the NBA has released the schedule for the 2011-2012 season. No one said it would be easy having a 66 game schedule. Multiple back-to-backs, and even some back-to-back-to-backs. Rest is going to. Be key this season, and injuries, well let’s hope nothing like that happens.

Yes, everyone is excited about the Christmas Day match-up with the Oklahoma City Thunder. But there are 65 other games to look forward too, and even a playoff run. Good thing about the shorter seasons is that Howard has less games to rack up the 16 technical fouls needed for a suspensions.

Key games:

Jan 6 - vs Chicago Bulls

Jan 16 - @ New York Knicks

Jan 20 - vs Los Angeles Lakers

Jan 26 - @ Boston Celtics

Feb 8 - vs Miami Heat

Feb 19 - @ Miami Heat

Mar 30 - vs Dallas Mavericks

Drunk Dial Gate

So you’ve probably heard by now that Magic CEO Bob Vander Weide has retired. Mr. Weide did admit to calling Dwight Howard at 1am after having a ‘few’ glasses of wine. Mr. Weide allegedly told Howard how much the Magic want to keep him.

The Magic will promote Alex Martins to the new CEO of the Orlando Magic.

Christmas Comes Early

As we wait for the CBA to get ratified, there are many things to look forward too.  Such as the Christmas day match-up between The Magic and The Thunder. This will be an early test against a very young and very talented Oklahoma City team.

But on to the Magic, before the start of training camp we are already surrounded by Dwight Howard controversy. Is he staying or is he going. Depending on who you listen to some say he will be traded, while others say he will leave after the season, and there are the few that say he will stay. If you saw the same report I did and if you listen to Skip Bayless, then there is some hope. Also Dwight is expected to meet with Orlando Magic GM Otis Smith today. But there is plenty more to worry about than one player, this is a team game.

What is Mr. Smith going to do to try to keep Dwight. Is he going to try to bring another superstar here, or is he just going to keep the same MO. By that I mean trading for washed up overly paid players that use to be stars. Such as Vince Carter, Gilbert Arenas, and everyone’s favorite Turkish player Hedo Turkoglu.

If we keep the same team this year, what are we capable of? Can we win it ALL, will we make the playoffs, or will we be on the outside looking in.

We have much to look forward to this season, even though we will only have 66 games instead of 82.
