With the new NBA season now merely days away, it’s time to really get excited about what this season could hold for the Orlando Magic. While expectations remain pretty modest, a new head coach in Scott Skiles and more young talent mean this is a team that could make a bit of noise in the less competitive Eastern Conference.
