Cohen Courtside: Storylines vs. Heat
Josh Cohen’s Analysis: Will the Magic try and imitate what the Heat accomplished in 2010 when they masterfully persuaded LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to unite and form arguably the best compilation of talent in NBA history? After trading Dwight Howard this past summer and purposely not accepting any encumbered contracts, Orlando will likely have a plethora of salary cap space in the next two to three years to also attempt to form a star-studded anthology. Remember, back in 2000 the Magic nearly became the first team to congregate a trio of superstars in free agency when they acquired Tracy McGrady and Grant Hill and almost sequestered Tim Duncan away from the Spurs. If one team in Florida can do it, there is no reason why the other can’t.
