Introduction

After a few weeks to digest and contemplate the events surrounding the Orlando Magic, the picture remains partly cloudy. The one thing we know for sure is that the local newspaper completely and totally failed. The Orlando Sentinel has two reporters assigned full time to cover the Orlando Magic, and several of their other reporters and columnists pride themselves on being well connected into the local sports scene. It is interesting then that it was ESPN in Hartford, Connecticut, rather than the local paper which broke the story that Matt Goukas was pushed or jumped up the stairs at One Magic Place.
