Is This Gonna Get Butts In Seats?

The Orlando Magic are undoubtedly coming off the 2 worst seasons in franchise history. After losing Tracy McGrady and subsequently, the GM that dealt him away, the team has failed to make the playoffs for two straight seasons. Fan support is at an all-time low, and THIS is supposed to get people excited about the upcoming season?

I’m not saying that there are a lot of great free-agents out there…but this is the only move the Magic has made thus far. I’ve been a huge fan since the inception of the franchise, and like so many other Magic fans I’m looking for a reason to believe this season. Keeyon Dooling doesn’t quite cut it for me. Jameer Nelson is a more-than-capable point guard, and if we’re going to keep Steve Francis…then he’s our starting shooting guard.

I really hope the team has something in the works, because I’d hate to see the Magic miss the playoffs for the third straight year. The dwindling fan base needs a shot in the arm, and the attendance at last year’s games was just sad.
