Orlando Magic: A Storybook Waiting To Be Fulfilled

Matt Shea@isheax407Correspondent IApril 15, 2010

Oh to be young, yet experienced. We need this banner Magic fans. Our home court, our team! The last year in this arena that was filled with such great memories: Beating LeBron in the ECF last year, Nick Anderson's running layup with time expiring to beat the Bulls, Hedo Turkoglu's game winner over Rashard Lewis of the Super-Sonics when any win was huge, and Kobe Bryant's fist pump after beating us in game 5 of the 2009 NBA Finals....Okay, that last one wasn't so great. Such a good reminder of what we have yet to do.

Get this fans, we are 1-12 all time in the NBA Finals. Kinda scary considering most of the losses came by under 10 points and a missed layup on the road in L.A. at the buzzer. Case in point, nothing is EVER easy in the NBA. The main issue, we don't have enough consistency on defense, and take too many threes. As fans, we can increase their stops on defense from our noise and intensity.

So I challenge my fellow fans, let's make it happen this year. "16 More to Go!" -Vince Carter (16 wins that is). Let's jump on Charlotte early and get some time off after a sweep guys! GO MAGIC!
