The Orlando Magic's Wild Ride Since Trading Dwight Howard

  • Published on Nov 28, 2018
  • Customize hats on:
    Ever since the Orlando Magic traded away Dwight Howard in 2012, it's been a wild ride. In this video, I go into detail about all of the seasons they had since the Dwight trade, including all of the trades and signings that helped or crippled the franchise.
    I make all kinds of NBA videos which include trivia, analysis, player stories, countdowns, conspiracies, and mysteries. Make sure to leave a like and subscribe if you enjoyed this video!

    Two words for you "Upper Management" .. that's all this really comes down to, either you have really good upper management or you don't, its the most vital component in sports yet its hardly ever talked about.. they made ALL the draft picks, in charge of ALL the scouting, make ALL the trade decisions, it can set your franchise up really good for about 10 years, or you can be set back for about 10 years

    Hey Andy! I always watch your videos. This year the Denver Nuggets has a big chance on making the playoffs again, and maybe go to the WCF. It would be good to see a video of the 08-09 Nuggets, the last team of the Nuggets who make the WCF and it's a little forget. Regards from Argentina!

    Ever notice that lesser NBA teams ALWAYS get fleeced beyond reason when they trade their stars? No other sport sees the non megamarket teams get screwed this badly, this consistently.

    Hate to say it but if you think the difference between Peyton and Saric is minimal you need to watch more tape. Elfred is not only extremely inconsistent with his performance but when he does score a lot it's on awful efficiency. He also turns the ball over way more than Dario. All in all, one is good and the other isnt

    yea but to be fair dwight howard has been on just as bad of a downward spiral since wanting out. WIth the magic he was a top 3 mvp canidate cause they built around him. grass isnt always greener on the other side, he was exposed in La

      to be fair the Miami Heat have spoiled newer nba fans cause expansion teams haven't won it all since the mid to late 70's when the aba merged into the nba and we got the spurs nets nuggets pacers and clippers but besides them spurs recent success after 25 nba years of failure to begin their nba reign until they finally own it all in 99, really Miami with its 3 titles within its first 25 years has been the only team that's come into the league and won it all since the late 70's aka aba merger days...we talking about the thunder, the jazz, the raptors, the magic, the t wolves, the hornets, the pelicans, the clippers, the kings, the nets, the pacers, the nuggets, the suns, the hawks, the grizzlies have all failed to prove this theory correct...its pretty hard to win when your new or move or change names...its Miami and everyone else..and that's cause they got pat riley and shaq LeBron and d wade aka 3 of the 20 best players ever in their primes to come and stay for long period of time...the nba has 12 teams without a title and only 15 of them won their title in the current city their in...cough kings hawks thunder and won their titles in other cities...

    Let's look at who our owners are. The mothafucking DeVo's!! Their agenda is make a pure Christian world. This team resemble this same ideal. I know many of you look at it from a surface level but it's so much deeper than that.

    Now I will take this all back if we sign Rondo next year.

    Great video! I'm a Magic fan but I have questioned all the trades and acquisitions mentioned on the video as well. They have no patience and horrible player development. I'm not sure if it's a question of the GM's but sometimes I think the owner had a hand in all of this. They got back a lot for Dwight so the organization is faulty.

    I hate the fact that I'm a loyal idiot and support a franchise in a shitty city on the other coast. Been horrible watching Hennigan Draft Great Players but have 0 idea how to put the pieces together. Tobias, Oladipo, Sabonis, O'QUINN, HARKLESS. All given away for no value, on top of paying an unathletic egotistic frenchman.
