<a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/05/how-could-things-be-worse-for-the-magic-hiring-shaquille-oneal-as-the-gm">As we discussed yesterday</a>, people were a bit perplexed when TNT NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal was suddenly mentioned as a candidate for the vacant Orlando Magic GM position, because he’d spent the last decade completely pissing all over the franchise that drafted him No.

How Could Things Be Worse For The Magic? Hiring Shaquille O'Neal As The GM

Have you heard the one about the superstar free agent center who left his team, citing myriad problems within the organization as well as his desire to leave behind a “small pond” market for stardom, and then spent the next decade constantly ripping that team at any chance he got for no good reason, ultimately focusing on its new superstar center, who admired and idolized him enough that he used the same nickname, with an inexplicable vitriol that was later passed off as “all in good fun”, eventually finding himself out of the media spotlight when his career ended, only to use that once-again-hurting franchise to make people talk about him, because, hey, what’s a river of bad blood beneath a burned bridge anyway.

The Hottest New Dance: The Traveling Duhon

By | 3 Comments

<a href="http://s977.photobucket.com/albums/ae252/AshleyBurns1979/?action=view&current=DuhonDance.gif" target="_blank"> The majority of the national media picked the Indiana Pacers to beat the Orlando Magic in 4 games, and the Florida sports media is so convinced that the Magic are going to lose quickly that they just stuck to making up news about Dwight Howard instead of predicting the series outcome. But on Saturday night, the Magic had other ideas, as they defeated the Indiana Pacers 81-77 in the first game of their incredibly boring first round matchup. The Magic went on an 11-0 run to close out the game, and the victory was sealed when Indiana’s Danny Granger traveled with less than 8 seconds left and down by just 3. And all the way at the end of the Magic bench, Chris Duhon, of all people, turned Granger’s one stupid play into the weekend’s best sports meme not involving Dontari Poe trying to make out with Roger Goodell. So of course the crafty minds of the Interwebs took some musical liberties with <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1n75Me7zn4&feature=related">the original video of Duhon’s travel dance</a>.
