Who would want to go there? ****, the mop head they drafted last year said he wanted to go to NY during his first interview on the floor after Orlando took him!

We are one of the most poorly run franchises in professional sports. No question.

Additionally, it’s an issue that there are so few true Magic fans here in Orlando. I had season tickets and was always amazed by the support for the visiting team at almost every game. I went to the Finals against the Lakers, and you’d have thought it was a LA home game. Howard mentioned it once when he responded to me on twitter years ago. He said playing in Orlando just isn’t what it’s like to play in other cities. He was right.

I’m not a bandwagon fan, so I’d rather just not watch basketball at this point. But I think it will be fun to watch Bamba develop while he is here. I have no doubt that he will leave as soon as he’s a free agent and land somewhere like LA, Boston or NY. I’m used to it. I’ve watched Shaq, McGrady, and Howard leave.

A lot of sources believe LeBron is going to be a Laker. I'm excited about being a better team, but it'll be difficult to cheer for LeBron when I've rooted against him all these years.

As a Laker fan I'm sure you'll have no problem hopping on the bandwagon. :P

I've already jumped on it once in 1996. If that is a bandwagon, I'm sure I'll convince myself some how.

If Leonard goes to the Lakers it's reportedly a lock LeBron will. He's been actively recruiting people to LA

LeBron and Leonard plus whatever remains in LA are not enough to beat the Warriors or Rockets.

Rockets would lose to the Lakers, but Warriors would still come out of the West.

They are one of the bigger long shots, likely because they'd have to trade away contracts to afford him.

So very unlikely. He's having dinner with Magic tonight.

IDK why LeBron would leave the Eastern Conference. No matter what team he's on in the East next year, he'll go to the Finals. If he goes to the west, he may not make it to the conference finals.

1:10 p.m. ET: The Philadelphia 76ers will meet with LeBron James' agent, Rich Paul, today in Los Angeles, sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. James isn't expected to attend the meeting. The 76ers have also been engaged in talks with the San Antonio Spurs on a potential Kawhi Leonard trade, and so far, have kept three players off-limits in talks, team sources say: Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz.[quote]

Why would any Superstar want to team with Lebron James at this stage of his career? The team is run on his terms and if everything doesn’t go to plan, teammates get thrown under the bus and run over again with no second thought. HE was the driving force behind the Cavs re-signing JR Smith and Thompson and look what happened. Kyrie was aware of this and got out of town ASAP.

It’ll be more amazing if he gets this Laker team to the WCF.

Wouldn't it be crazy if the Magic actually went out and signed someone worth a **** at point guard since we missed out in the 1st round of the draft?
