    If the Orlando magic fans want to know the work ethic of Chuma, go watch his highlights, especially against the blue bloods of the NCAA tournament. The guy is an absolute workhorse and great instincts. Great pick for the Orlando organization. War Damn Magic!

      @Jairetariq dont you think the fact that he was there for 3 years doesn't play a part in it, of course he would be better in his later years

    They don't want to be in the NBA Playoffs next year. 😞😞😞
    Drafting an already injured player, let the Philadelphia 76ers Sam Hinkie-style 5 years of losing before reaching the playoffs again.
    Free Vucevic from this madness, let him go to Conference champion.

    Dude is the epitome of an all around player. Even inbounds plays for the other team aren't safe when he is on the court...even when they seem safe. He cares about winning more that his personal stats. I'd take him every day of the week if I was building a team. He can play 3, he can play 4. He can play 5 if he wanted. He can guard anyone. What I also like is that he never seemed to get into foul trouble ever either.

    We should have got Kevin Porter Jr we have a log jam at the forward spot ......This is ridiculous we need a guard

      That’s the exact player I wanted. We need a guy that can get his own shot.

    TBH i was shocked that the Magic picked Chuma O-keke dO You Luv Me at first because i was so adamant of getting a guard but after punching a hole in the wall i realized that this pick was a smart move by the front office. The kid was considered a lottery pick to most before his ACL injury. Chuma is a very skillful big who can shoot and play defense and that is something the Magic need more of. He's going to get consistent minutes behind Isaac and Gordon and those minutes could increase if the magic plan to play small ball which is more than likely. In addition, this also must signal the return of Markelle Fultz 🔥🔥🔥 He's going to be either our new PG or SG of the future and i think a lot people forget how talented he was. I think the Magic are going to address the 1 or 2 in free agency or in a trade. At the end of it all, the Magic are staying the course and the new FO is doing a solid job from what Rob Hennishit left on the platter.

    I like this kid don’t get me wrong. But I’m just so confused on why we drafted ANOTHER forward instead of a 2 guard.. are they planning on replacing Isaac or Gordon with this kid? Do they want him to just be a bench player?? Or are they LITERALLY trying to go positionless and have one true guard and the rest switchable bigs.. It’s just such a questionable move especially since we’ve seen what Orlando truly lacks from being in the playoffs.. Guard Presence..

      We lacked shooting, we lacked versatile defenders, we lacked ball handling and creation. No one left on the board fit better than Okeke. NAW is worse, less versatile defender, not good enough creator. We have many guards on the roster who are better than NAW projects to be : Fournier, Fultz hopefully Ross and we have Frazier. Pg is steady with DJ who was lottery pick in 2009. We lack wings and forwards with high intelligence, shooting and good feel for the game.

      Jay 2Cool who you think REALISTICALLY Orlando try’s to throw some money at if we package Evan and vuc walks

    • Jay 2Cool
      Jay 2Cool 28 days ago +4

      We gambling on Markelle to be at least half the player he once was and i also think we trying to trade Fournier and let vuvu go in free agency🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

      Late round young Guards are hard to develop. It’s better to sign an established one on free agency. They already have Markelle to develop, don’t need another one.

    His game reminds me of Klay Thompson. 39% from 3's 65% from the post. And top 5 defender

    Ever since we fired rob hennigan the Orlando Magic Front office has done everything right I see some magic fans are unhappy with the pick but fans should believe in Jeff Weltman and John Hammond There draft resume proves that they know what there doing Welcome To Orlando Chuma Okeke!!!
