Championship or Bust for Orlando?
According to Rashard Lewis, a title is the Magic’s sole aim this season: “Rashard Lewis stood up and addressed his teammates the first day the Orlando Magic gathered this season, delivering a message that gave the happy-go-lucky session a more serious tone. ‘It’s championship or bust,’ he said. It was a fitting way to begin a pressure-packed season with such high expectations. After falling short in the NBA finals, Orlando is hoping a series of offseason moves — highlighted by the addition of Vince Carter — will be enough to bring the franchise its long-sought first title. The defending Eastern Conference champions are stacked with four All-Stars and a deep bench. But with so many new players, the overriding question entering this season is will it all work?”
