This Orlando Magic selfie is literally everything that is right with the world. In honor of the viral Oscar selfie organized by Ellen DeGeneres, the Magic organized around sideline reporter Dante Marchitelli to replicate the Oscar moment.

If you need any reminder about what the original looked like, here it is for comparison’s sake:

Ellen’s tweet became the most retweeted in history, the first to reach the 1M and 2M marks. While the Magic had a lot to live up to, their own version did it justice.
The real winners here? Kyle O’Quinn and Victor Oladipo, which makes sense, because they have been winning at life lately. You may notice that Arron Afflalo is absent, but don;t worry, he’s not being too cool for school. He was on the fringes and got cut out.
This picture took place at the 24th annual Black Tie and Tennies Gala held on Saturday night. Tobias Harris was named the 2014 Rich and Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award winner, with $50,000 dollars going to his charity of choice. Jameer Nelson won the award last year, and before that Dwight Howard was a 4 time award winner (sharing his last one with JJ Redick).
While this might not be that news worthy, it does show an impressive level of maturity and engagement from Harris. At only 21 years old he is making his mark on the franchise on and off the court.
