Toronto Raptors vs. Orlando Magic series preview

Magic Johnson cites Westbrook as he shockingly resigns from the Lakers

Magic Over in LA as Johnson Abruptly Resigns as Lakers President

The Lakers would go back to being amongst the NBA's elite, while the Clippers would slide back into obscurity. The 28-year-old has recorded 60 double-doubles and one triple-double.

"Just know that he's happy and we're happy for him", she said.

"I think it's easy for any player to lock in on just one team". Suffice it to say, things didn't go quite as the Lakers would have planned and/or hoped. "I'm not sure. I don't know".

D'Angelo Russell, Atkinson's All-Star point guard, is seen as the other leading candidate for the Most Improved Player award after leading the Nets to a surprising playoff berth.

Isaac is believed to have been hurt in Orlando's win Sunday against the Celtics. "I have a long time to even start thinking about that stuff".


Clifford's experiences shaped his decision to have his shorthanded Magic pour everything into Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Charlotte Hornets even though they had already clinched a playoff berth. The Hornets have only been to the postseason twice during that time and have never gotten out of the first round.

Johnson's departure, while certainly hard to deal with, does provide Buss with the opportunity to put the franchise back on track if she can bring in the right person to replace him.

"We love Luke [Walton], so I got to make a decision and that's a tough thing", Johnson said.

If he does not re-sign, though, then that would signify a major rebuild for the Hornets. Walker said Thursday that "nothing has changed" in that regard, but his enthusiasm has clearly waned over the past seven months.

"It's nearly like I don't want to talk about it no more", Fournier said of ending the postseason drought. I don't want to be nowhere else.


Hornets shooting guard Jeremy Lamb is coming off the best season of his seven-year National Basketball Association career, averaging 15.3 points per game while making four game-winning shots.

"It shocked me, like it did the rest of the world", Ball said. In response, Green praised their versatility and depth, saying this is one of the most talented group of players he's "been with in a while".

Neither does coach James Borrego. This is a Toronto team out for blood, but a first-round scare could give them flashbacks and severely damage their confidence.

LAST 10 GAMES: Magic: 8-2, averaging 117.2 points, 48.8 rebounds, 29.6 assists, 7.4 steals and 5.7 blocks per game while shooting 47.4 per cent from the field.

"It was a different year for me - different roles, different positions", Batum said. Leonard (with 75 post-season appearances) and Green (with 100) both are National Basketball Association champions, cornerstones of some of San Antonio's finest post-season moments.


What happens when Kawhi Leonard, the soft-spoken superstar of the Toronto Raptors, is asked to eat bull penis pizza made by Serge Ibaka? The four have been friends for years, their bond immortalized by a photo of James, Wade and Paul riding a banana boat together while on vacation in 2015.
