Simply put, the Orlando Magic are shocking the NBA community, and there are a plethora of awards that should be handed out for the first quarter of their season. While this slideshow won't give the rightful credit to all individuals who deserve recognition, including the players, coaching staff, management and fan base, there is no denying the heart and character of this squad.
Just a few months removed from the "Dwightmare" that literally shook the franchise to the core, this organization has rebounded in tremendous fashion, proving to the NBA that this roster is still a force to be reckoned with.
Even without their All-Star center, a franchise cornerstone for nearly a decade, the Magic have salvaged an 8-12 record, which is third in the Southeast Division.
In the end, this squad may even surprise their impressed fans even more, as it is possible this gritty squad acquires a playoff berth. For right now, though, let's focus in the present and serve out a few awards to some worthy recipients.
