#8 The Magics are Awesome
NBA’s Orlando Magic is the only team that is awesome. The reason why the Magics are awesome is because of their players. Their head coach, Stan Van Gundy led the Magics in the playoffs. Orlando’s starting point guard; Jameer Nelson has played for the Magics for 5 years. Jameer Nelson is a 6 foot tall point guard that averages 20.4 per game in the 2009-10 playoffs. He is one of my favorite guards because he is a type of player that leads his team.
The Orlando Magics hold the record for the most 3-pointer attempts and shots made. The reason why they hold that record is because of their 6 foot 10 forward, Rashard Lewis. Rashard Lewis’s 3-point percentage is 39.7%. He averages 15.2 points per game in the 2009-10 playoffs. Whenever Rashard hits a 3 pointer, I get excited and I salute him.
Another reason why the Magics are awesome is because of their 6 foot 10 center, Dwight Howard. Dwight has been selected to be in the All- Star game, USA team, Dunk Contest, and more. His nickname, “Superman” was earned by his defensive ability and his performance. Dwight has been a big part of the Magics for 5 years. He was the 1st pick by the Orlando Magics in 2004. He averages 18.3 point per game, 13.2 rebounds per game, and 2.8 blocks per game. He leads the NBA in blocks and rebounds. He earned the “Most Defensive Player” award two years in a row. That is another reason why the Magics are awesome.
