Cohen 8-Ball: The NBA Cycle
Josh Cohen’s Analysis: NBA success works in cycles. We tend to be narrow-minded when we scope out the league, but generally speaking, NBA franchises ride a looping, spinning and rather bumpy roller coaster. After trading Dwight Howard this past summer, the Magic began a renovation and are presently in the infantile stages of such a rebuild. With several promising young players, like Nikola Vucevic and Maurice Harkless, impending salary cap space, high draft picks on the horizon and a slew of trade assets, the Magic will rise again and it will probably happen relatively quickly.
