The upcoming NBA season is a little over a month away, with players, organizations and fan-bases preparing for its inevitable arrival, the question is, how will your team perform for the 2019 – 2020 season?
While discussing all 30 NBA teams and predicting how each will perform, would allow many to see how his/her team will compare to others, today we’ll be discussing specifically the Orlando Magic.
As many of us remember from last season, the Magic have exceeded expectations, such as: having a better record than the prior seasons; making it into the playoffs; and landing Markelle Fultz in a trade deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.
If we are to use the Magic’s performance last season as an indication of what to expect, then it could be argued that the team would continue to win more games, while losing less games; in addition, if you’ve been keeping up with the social media accounts of Magic players and Magic fan-accounts, you’ll notice that there have been talks of players improving engaging in personal development.
One example that many fans are aware of is the rumors of how the Magic may have Fultz be ready much sooner than anticipated. For those unaware, Fultz was a player who has had a history of injuries that has impacted his shooting ability; and as a result, many fans have speculated that his time in Philly has negatively affected his shooting form.
But on social media such as Instagram and Twitter, there have been short clips of Fultz in the gym shooting around, and while it isn’t on the same level as someone like Stephen Curry, the fact that Fultz is engaging in shooting drills should excite Magic fans everywhere.
Another player that has made strides this off-season is Jonathan Isaac. Isaac who was a bit smaller and a few inches shorter, has some fans and insiders speculate that the big man may have gained muscle and a few inches in height. Additionally, the way Isaac has performed in the Team White v. Team Blue games during the Team US scrimmage, showed that the big man is playing with more confidence.
In addition, another Magic player that did well this off-season would be Evan Fournier, who helped Team France win bronze during the FIBA World Cup this past summer. Fournier a heavy contributor to France’s success, helped the team win crucial games against competitive teams such as: Australia, Lithuania and the U.S.
Magic pre-season begins October 11th and will be an away game against the San Antonio Spurs.
