Evan was in the zone 🇫🇷 ...

Evan was in the zone 🇫🇷

So glad we chose to go with him over Oladipo. Was a great season for all of us. Really happy with our management.

Great! Now let's trade him for a second round draft pick or cash consideration while his value is at its peak!

In the zone???? You’re paying 17m a year for some bum to average 18 a game??? JUST THROW YOUR MONEY IN THE TRASH. Save us all the time!

Getting really tired of reading all these comments about how great Oladipo was. Be mad at the "return" they got in the trade, sure, but don't make him out to be more than what he was. He showed flashes here and there, but nothing consistent that proved he was anything more than a 15-5-5 guy. Maybe that was coaching, or had more to do with the surrounding talent, but if that was the case, what happened in OKC? Personally, I think coach Mac has reached him in a way others couldn't, and that the "disrespect" he was shown in the trades has given him motivation to take it to the next level. Good for him, he's out of the cesspool and doing well. But it wasn't guaranteed that if he stayed he would be doing what he's doing now, so stop being guilty of revisionist history.

Why do you keep making this posts in order to be roasted in every single one of them?

He also makes $17 Million/Year. So basically we pay this man $1 Million for every 1 PPG. Trash contract. NEXT.

They need to hit the reset button, they've had pretty much this same team for a few years now with no improvement

Can you guys just stop posting?🙏 You're embarrassing all of us 🤦

Y’all trade Oladipo but keep this clown smh

The only Zone he should be in is Auto Zone testing batteries. This guy is a fraud of a Basketball player and so is this so called Basketball franchise that should be purchase d by a real Basketball fanatic who knows Basketball 😐

What zone? He was out half the season pretty much and won what? 26 games out of 82....let’s no celebrate 10 place trophies here ...we need change from the higher ups to change this organization

Sooooooo in the zone. That is why we finished 3rd to last in the league?

Every fb post the Magic makes becomes a roast session lol

That’s so bad. How does that lead an NBA team? This is not something you should post Orlando Magic.

No player averaged 20ppg. Thats embarrasing.

Evan was in the zone, and Evan was on the IR. I had the mf on my fantasy team too, so it was a double L for me smh...

Orlando will trade all the good players for less , way to go Orlando

Please get rid of this ball hog... I can't believe we chose him over Oladipo.. big mistake.

Really Orlando Magic you can't be serious with this post.

Evans more worried about becoming bald than getting better at basketball

Should have never been more than a 6th man.

He’s still garbage. Him or oladipo and u keep him

That’s a wicked scrape he’s got there.

In the zone on the bench!

Ted Hedden all the good it did is tho amirite???

Who do you want as Magic coach?

Anyone else could draft better talent. The magic have always been afraid to spend money on players. Same reason why shaq left and the same reason why prime howard left ( even though he wasnt much after from injuries )

That's nice and all, but did we win that game? Probably not.

Ana Mon Gar pedí una repetición especial para seguir analizando

It won't matter. They have almost no real talent, and they don't know how to draft.

nice!

One of the best jerseys ever. Was the first one I ever had. Loved it so much! 🏀⭐1⃣

The good ol' days when u were proud to be a magic fan. Its embarrassing to say I'm a magic fanatic these days.

Remember it well. He was such a good shooter you just knew he'd eventually get that record. Of course it's been eclipsed since then but 3-D was such a gunner.

Dennis Scott??

Red Collier Robert Collier Jennifer Wilmot these were the GOOD years for the Magic!

The past is where continue to live because the front office doesn’t care about the future!

still living in the past

Those were the days! Never mind the players, Lord only knows why they don't at least bring back the uniforms!

Awesome player

What a smooth jumper

3D was fun to watch

I was there!!!

WOW!3D!

You doom the player to frustration when you surround him with an organization whose leadership is now interested in building a winner. Why do we lose awesome coaches and players? Look at the owner.

One of the dumbest signings Magic ever did! No one will take his expensive contract so Magic are stuck with him for 2 more years!

Worst signing in Magic history.

The Magic traded Serge and Olidipo for this? ?? Look at the pacers and raptors respective game 1's and see what could have been. Smh 😐😐😐😐

That’s great but Victor Oladipo took Pacers to the playoffs....could of been the Magic had the owners and Martinez believe in his talents 😒 <Magic trades him>

Isn't blocks and rebounds his calling card? That's 1.16 per game. Please make wise decisions this summer and make this team respectable again. Call me, I have ideas and it won't cost you nearly as much.

Maybe magic need to bring in Bo Outlaw to teach him how to get his blocks over 200 next year.

Stop with these statistical leaders. You’re embarrassing yourselves.

He also led the team is highest salary to lowest quality play ratio

Getting paid 250,000 per block. GG

Anytime you can pay 178,000 dollars per block, you gotta do it.

Sell this team to Bezos and move it to Seattle then get a NHL franchise.

$17m for 1 block a game. Now that's what I call #MagicTime!

Please stop. This is embarrasing. Can we talk about the lottery. Oh we stuffed that up too by winning the last game.

Please please go away. This is a freaking joke and this guy salary and for the number of minutes he played his completely embarrassing. Please take a four month vacation

Only 250,000 per block this year!! Stupid signing. Lucky lottery winner that year in the nba!!

Oh goodie, lets close Orange Ave and have a parade for him.

Pay him more. That right there is a contract extension. 200mill.

We paid all this money with 0 offensive game.... Trash

Lol I'll take the wins over a mediocre (with a stretch) player leading in blocks or rebounds

Had a career season high 7 points, too.

Erick Hayward David Levitt this is obviously fake because I had 200+ 🙄

Trash. Everything about the magic is trash

I'm convinced this is a parody account

Along with most dollars stolen.

It's Heartworm Awareness Month. Let's bust a few myths ...

🚫Heartworms are caused by fleas - FALSE! Heartworms happen when an infected mosquito bites your pet. Flea treatment alone will not protect your pet from heartworms.

🚫Heartworms can be cured with dewormer - FALSE! Heartworms live in heart, lungs and blood vessels of your pet. They can grow to be 12 inches long. Prevention is key.

🚫Heartworm-positive dogs cannot be adopted - FALSE! At JHS, many families adopt dogs who are heartworm positive and JHS pays for the treatment. This way dogs can recover in loving homes and get a second leash on life. (Fun fact - you can purchase discounted heartworm prevention from JHS when you adopt, too!)

🚫Heartworms are #NBD (no big deal) - FALSE! Heartworm disease left untreated is fatal.

Remember - heartworm disease IS preventable. Keep your pets safe and on prevention. Just one pill a month! Share this information with a friend so pets everywhere can stay safe. ❤️

Starsky had heartworms when I adopted him from JHS. With all the help from JHS to get him treated and taken care of, He's almost a year past all those problems. :)

We got Bella from JHS 3 years ago. she had heartworms but was cleared up before we got her. All we do is give her heartguard once a month and the vet does the heartworm test once a year which is always negative.

Another favorite: “my dog doesn’t go outside/only goes out to potty, he can’t get heartworms.”
