With all the hoopla surrounding the Miami Heat we’ve almost forgotten that there’s another NBA team in Florida and it’s a good one and getting better. Orlando Magic tickets holders got a little pre-Xmas gift when the Magic went on a trade spree.
Orlando let go of Vince Carter and Mickael Pietrus, along with Marcin Gortat to land some bigger fish. Or at least they hope winning fish. Try Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, and Hedo Turkoglu for a Magic roster boost. $3 million to the Phoenix Suns and you have a new Orlando Magic, one capable of dealing the Miami Heat some losses. being pushed to the wall in your own division is always a good way to shake things up. With this trade the Orlando Magic become a member of an elite group that seems willing to do what it takes to become a contender.
