08:11 AM ET 10.12 | The Magic's kingdom is certainly a gentler place these days under Jacque Vaughn. On Thursday night, in his home preseason debut, Vaughn radiated serenity. ... No yelling. Little play-calling. An occasional pat on the back when players exited the game. "They say it's all about the delivery," Magic big man Glen Davis said. "Some coaches' delivery is not as sweet as others, but the message is there. The message is in the delivery. As a player, you don't want to take advantage of that. You want to run through a wall for a guy like that." ... [Observers from the scorer's table] couldn't hear Vaughn's voice at any point in the game. That's a distinct -- but not necessarily more effective -- contrast in style with his predecessor, Stan Van Gundy.

Anything is better than Stan's screeching and sideline demeanor.

I suspect they will miss Dwight much more.

That's a closed chapter. Miss Dwight's presence on the defensive side of the ball? Well, of course. Miss the drama and the missed free throws? Not a bit. But all that's over. Time to look forward.
