Networks and Channels Streaming the Magic This Year
The Orlando Magic is a famous, well known American, professional, all-star basketball team based out of the city of Orlando, Florida. The Orlando Magic competes in the NBA, the highest level of pro basketball, as a part of the league’s Eastern Conference Southeast Division along with Atlanta, Washington, Miami, and Charlotte. The franchise was first established in 1989 as an expansion franchise, so the team is still to this day pretty young. Certain notable NBA stars as Shaquille O’Neal, Penny Hardaway, Patrick Ewing, Grant Hill, Tracy McGrady, Steve Francis, Dwight Howard, Vince Carter, and Rashard Lewis have all played for the team throughout its young history, boosting the team up and giving it much better statistics than young teams generally speaking have. Another notable thing about this team is that the Orlando Magic has also played in the NBA playoffs for more than half of its entire existence (14 playoff appearances in only 27 years), and twice went to the NBA Finals, in 1995 and in 2009. The Orlando Magic has continued to surprise us, and they’ve built a strong following as a result.
