Orlando’s Core Beams Optimism at Media Day

Well, we’re here. Time to shove the 20-win nightmare to the side and start from scratch. The best thing about Media Day is that everyone is smiling. The day before tip-off of Training Camp also brings hopes, dreams, and high expectations for an individual and an organization as a whole. Ignore the numerous viewpoints that another season of tanking is the assumed solution and that the playoffs should be the last thing on the Magic’s mind. Enjoy interviews from GM Rob Hennigan, Head Coach Jacque Vaughn, and the ‘core’ group of Magic men.

 

Rob Hennigan:

Notice that even ‘Henny’ isn’t hiding the fact that Hedo Turkoglu is done in O-Town.

 

Jacque Vaughn:

 

Jameer Nelson:

If you go in with a ‘Last of the Mohicans’ mindset, you appreciate this interview even more.

Arron Afflalo:

Tobias Harris:

The 17 pounds of added muscle are not a lie, T12 is going to terminate some folks.
Nikola Vucevic:

Nik’s disappointment over EuroBasket will be some great fuel to continue improving. Also, he legitimately appears 7’0″.
Andrew Nicholson & Maurice Harkless double interview edition:

I never want to deal with that again.
