Has anyone here had a chance to see the Magic play this year? I'm really curious about how Grant Hill looks. His stats look OK - does he have his quickness, or does he look gimpy? Does he look strong? Is he back?

Also, how is the Howard kid looking? His stats look pretty good too....

I've had a chance to see them play.

Hill looks good. He has lost the quickness to his game, but the shot is still there. He can drive to the whole and finish around the basket - and his ankle looks fine while doing it. But like I said, the shot hasn't gone away.

Howard looks amazing. He is going to be a good player. He can run the floor, and is very athletic. He's a good rebounder and has a good NBA body for an 18 year old Power Forward. I find it real awkward to look at him and realize I'm older than him. :shudder:

Ha! Wait until you're Reggie's age, like me! That's awkward. I keep pulling for Uncle Reg to stick around the NBA just so I can pretend like I could still be playing like him. Kind of Nolan Ryan-type fantasy!

Good luck to Grant....thanks for the update.
