ANEZ SEZ: We Can Play Too!

By WDBO's Scott Anez                                              Ladies and gentlemen, your 2012-13 Orlando Magic! After all the negativity, the criticism and the ill-will that the Dwightmare produced;  after firing and hiring coaches and general managers;  after dealing Dwight in a deal that was viewed from afar as being extremely one-sided;  after dealing for ...

ANEZ SEZ: A Heat Re-Peat

By WDBO's Scott Anez As we head into the NBA’s regular season, it’s time for Sez to tell you what team will stand above the rest come June of 2013. I have a pool of three teams with an A-Grade shot at winning it all this season:  The Miami Heat, ...

ANEZ SEZ: My Magic Number is 35

By WDBO's Scott Anez Let’s face it---for the last five years or so, we’ve been spoiled here in Orlando. Every year, we would go into the season knowing that the Magic would be well on their way to a 50-plus win season. We would know that a playoff appearance would ...

ANEZ SEZ: Deep Thoughts From Game 2

By WDBO's Scott Anez Preseason game #2:  Sixers 102 Magic 95. …Jacque Vaughn is calm, cool, collected, and consistent on the bench.  At one point in the first quarter, Hedo Turkoglu customarily chucked the ball about six feet over Jameer Nelson’s head.  Having been conditioned to glance over at the ...

ANEZ SEZ: Will History Repeat Itself?

I will not sugar coat it. Never have, never will.  This is gonna be a tough year in some respects—a year of transition. There's no getting around it. Any time you lose a star player--a player who this franchise built around for eight years--it's gonna take some time to climb ...

One-on-One with Glen Big Baby Davis

WDBO's Scott Anez goes one-on-one with Orlando Magic big man Glen 'Big Baby' Davis: Scott Anez...Baby, it's a new year.  Some would say it's a transition year for the Orlando Magic.  Are you looking forward to year number two with the Magic? Baby Davis...Most definitely.  Ya know, I'm looking forward ...

ANEZ SEZ: What I Learned on Day 1

I attended my 24th Orlando Magic Media Day on Monday.  We've come a long way since those days at the Orlando Rec Center. I must tell you that this was one of the more subdued Media Days in Magic history. But, after last year's circus led by ringmaster Dwight Howard, ...

ANEZ SEZ: Stan Van Gundy--Coach Turned Politician?

Usually this time of year, Stan Van Gundy would be busy getting ready for the upcoming NBA season.  However, after being fired as head coach of the Magic in May, Stan now has some time on his hands.  So, he's leading an effort in Seminole County to raise money for ...

ANEZ SEZ: The Dwightmare Is Finally Over

BY WDBO'S SCOTT ANEZ How do I feel about the deal? Well, let’s put it this way. I feel like I’ve just undergone a root canal. The convoluted four-team deal is this:  Dwight Howard goes to the Lakers.  The Magic ship Jason Richardson to the Sixers.  We get Arron Afflalo, ...

ANEZ SEZ: What About The Kids, Dwight?

By WDBO's Scott Anez When I first heard the news that Dwight Howard would not be attending his own basketball camp next week here in Orlando, I'd like to tell you that I was shocked and surprised.  I'd like to tell you that I was baffled and bewildered. I'd like ...

ANEZ SEZ: What's The End Game?

By WDBO's Scott Anez                                               I was on a Cleveland radio station a few days ago and the question came up:  "What's the end game?" In other words....Where will Dwight Howard end up for the coming season and beyond? Answer: It is very possible that Dwight is back in a Magic ...

Anez Sez: Orlando A Great Place For Superstar

                                                                                                      By WDBO's Scott Anez So many topics, so little space. I return from vacation with tons of comments and questions in my inbox.  So let's get right to the highlights.... 'What do you think of the new whiz kid GM?" I will say this about Rob Hennigan--He's bold.  He's ...

ANEZ SEZ: Skiles is my guy!

BY WDBO'S SCOTT ANEZ I got an email the other day from a Magic fan who wrote... "Scott, why don't the Magic hire you as their next GM?" Well, if they really want to screw things up, sure, why not? For the record, I am not in the running and ...

ANEZ SEZ: Times, They Are A Changin'

BY WDBO's SCOTT ANEZ Frankly, I thought it would go down last week. Monday afternoon, it all hit the fan. Coach Stan Van Gundy fired.  G-M Otis Smith steps aside. Perhaps Stan sealed his fate when he, on April 5, stated that someone at the top of the Magic organization ...

ANEZ SEZ: What Next At One Magic Place?

By WDBO's Scott Anez   It is always so darn abrupt. I am never prepared for the end of the season. Even though we all sensed the end was near, Tuesday night's game five loss in Indiana brought to a close what has been the longest short season in the ...

Round One Breakdown

Point Guard…George Hill is a pretty solid defender. He has started just nine games this year and doesn’t have a whole lotta playoff experience. Jameer, on the other hand, has 34 career playoff games under his belt. I really like Jameer’s look right now. He started very slowly this year, ...

ANEZ SEZ: Why Not Wait, Dwight?

By WDBO's Scott Anez   I heard the news Thursday night and, frankly, I didn’t feel a thing. I am completely numb in this, our season of discontent, drama and dysfunction. Dwight Howard is done for the season. He has made the decision to undergo back surgery today in Los Angeles ...

There’s No Selfishness Whatsoever

By WDBO's Scott Anez   The Magic, playing without Dwight, Hedo and Big Baby, had just put forth one of their best efforts of the season. Monday night, they whipped the Sixers in total team effort, 113-100. Six Magic players scored in double figures.  The ball club played with an ...

ANEZ SEZ: My Top 10 Memories of O-Rena

The O-Rena is no more. Sunday, the old Orlando Arena/TD Waterhouse Center/Amway Arena bit the dust, literally, when it was imploded and crumbled to the ground.  I have been asked countless times between yesterday and today:  How do you feel about that?  After all, I spent nearly half my life ...

ANEZ SEZ: Can Magic Win Championship?

With Dwight Howard in the fold for the rest of the season, we now know what we have. GM Otis Smith says that, what we see is likely what we're gonna get come playoff time. So, here's the question I have for you.... As it stands right now, can this ...
