Orlando Magic Tickets

Orlando Magic Tickets on Sale

The Orlando Magic are one of the NBA basketball teams hampered by contracts. The Magic have eight figure contracts for point guard Gilbert Arenas, center Dwight Howard, and small forward Hedo Turkoglu. Last season Arenas and Turkoglu did not earn their paychecks. Turkoglu was an important part of the NBA finals team three seasons ago, but Jameer Nelson has taken his game to another level and is capable of running the offense.

The Magic also have a host of shooters coming off the bench. Shooting guard Quentin Richardson, forward Ryan Anderson, and shooting guard J.J. Redick are a potent trio from three. Point guard Point Duhon is a decent backup. These players might have to step up their productivity because Jason Richardson is going to be too expensive to resign.

This is thought to be the final year for this roster to succeed. Howard has two years left on his contract, so if he does not show a willingness to resign, the Magic will be busy ensuring they get something more in return than just $18 million in cap space once he departs.

Orlando Magic History

The Orlando Magic has a history of falling just short with terrific centers and losing them again. First, they had Shaquille O'Neal in the early 1990s. He, Penny Hardaway, and a host of shooters took advantage of Michael Jordan's absence to develop into the best team in the Eastern Conference. They went to the NBA Finals in 1995, just six seasons after first taking the court in Orlando as an expansion basketball team.

Shaq would leave via free agency after the 1996 offseason and Penny Hardaway became the focal point of the franchise. The tall guard could play three positions, but injuries began to mount and the Magic's postseason success waned as Hardaway deteriorated. Orlando turned to a new guard, Tracy McGrady, from 2000 to 2004. McGrady was coupled with small forward Grant Hill, but Hill had become plagued by injury. In the end, the Magic were perennial first round losers.

Then, in 2004, Orlando embraced its history and drafted an athletic but skinny center just out of high school. Howard began working out and putting on the weight necessary to hold his own in the post. Coach Brian Hill began to develop Howard's post game and defense. Howard became a 20 point Ð 20 rebound threat and would eventually develop into the best center in the league. Now he is the focal point of the defense and is becoming a better and better offensive player with a few post moves to accentuate his athleticism. TheSeats has the Magic tickets to enjoy the new season as Orlando is out to reach the finals once again.
