Aw, Here It Goes!
In the ORLANDO SENTINEL, Brian Schmitz writes that "they are still missing a few ingredients, but the Orlando Magic believe they are cooking up an appetizing pot of potential this season." Orlandoâ€™s "season largely will be determined by the growth of youngsters Dwight Howard, 20; Jameer Nelson, 24; and Darko Milicic, 21. Nelson's midseason foot injury likely cost the Magic a playoff spot: They were 5-15 in the games he missed." Health is always a concern, "particularly when the roll call includes veteran Grant Hill. Entering the final year of his contract, he is recovering from a sports hernia injury. Hill will be restricted by the team in camp, as will rookie J.J. Redick, who spent the summer rehabbing a herniated disk in his back."
