The Magic made huge moves last week, completely restructuring the team’s roster. If any, how big of an improvement was made?
What are your thoughts on the new-look Magic?

until their first few games, its hard to tell
They no longer have a capable wing defender. Both J and Q Rich are offensive threats. This trade was better for the Magic offensively rather than defensively. When it comes down to it who is going to be their stopper when they play MIA, BOS, or LAL? I hope they don’t expect Arenas to guard the better 2s and 3s that they will face.
Defense wins championships, nuff said.
The Magic said their biggest issue was defense but as someone who watches every game religiously, what they really lacked was offensive creators. The trades address that issue.
They better hope they catch fire. Without unlimited turbo and the right to goaltend, this team can’t win in the playoffs.
Man, I WISH I could say they’re behind Chicago, but that can’t be the case when they whip our asses every time.
They still need to trade Jameer for a decent backup for Dwight
The Magic defense will be fine in time. Defense is about the system. Unless you think the Magic been among the best defenses in the league the past three years with lock down defenders like Vince Carter, Rashard Lewis, Rafer Alston, Hedo Turkoglu, Courtney Lee, Jameer Nelson, etc.
