Big Baby is never one to mix words. He’s a pretty candid guy, but you never want to hear this. It’s hard for big guys to come back from foot injuries (Bill Walton, Yao Ming) and it seems like he knows that. It’s a shame because he was playing at such a high level before the injury too.
Bill Simmons believes the Magic are going to have the third worst record in the league. Like typical Bill Simmons things, the video is produced well and is entertaining. But take a lot of what he says with a grain of salt because, somehow, no one at Grantland realized that this is Jacque Vaughn’s second year with the team. So how much insight can he really have into the Orlando Magic? That’s a pretty big mistake. Simmons does, however, pick Oladipo to win Rookie of the Year.
Tickets for Magic for all Magic home games until December 31st go on sale tomorrow. Probably the best thing about have a team of this caliber is that it won’t cost you much to watch a professional basketball game. And hey, the Magic might be better than you think.

No surprise here. What is a surprise is that Joe Johnson is 15th globally. JOE JOHNSON.
