5 Things We've Learned About the Orlando Magic, Post-Dwight Howard Era
Brad Barr-US PRESSWIRE

The Orlando Magic are just beginning the post-Dwight Howard era, and the identity of this season's team is starting to take shape. 

Young players like Nikola Vucevic and Andrew Nicholson will be given a chance to contribute, while it might take slightly longer for 19-year-old Moe Harkless to break into the rotation.

In an effort to put the Howard era in the past, new head coach Jacque Vaughn is attempting to prove that his team can play tough interior defense without the league's best interior defender.

The expectations have been lowered in Orlando, but optimism remains as the fan base and players have bonded together in an effort to prove that the Magic aren't irrelevant without Howard. 

Under Vaughn, the Magic players will fight hard on a nightly basis but will be undermanned in the majority of their contests. 

Even if the Magic do have a rough season, there are still plenty of reasons to watch them, as there are numerous story lines to follow.
