07:16 AM ET 10.22 | The Magic are on the verge of making an age-old element of the game disappear. This preseason the Magic have done away with morning shootarounds, choosing instead to hold afternoon shootarounds on their Amway Center practice court before home exhibitions and afternoon walkthroughs in hotel ballrooms when they've been on the road. It appears that coach Jacque Vaughn made the switch to improve players' retention of specific gameplans and to keep his players fresh. ... "Have I made a conscious effort to not have some shootarounds? Yes," Vaughn said. "And will that continue throughout the course of the year? Probably yes. I took a scope of all the things that we did last year -- what I liked, what I didn't like, what I thought was efficient. And that's what I'm about. I'm about being efficient."

Hey, interns. You've got the NFL thread links going to the NBA threads.

How are the spammers supposed to figure this out, so they can tell us about how their cousin's half-brother's illegitimate son made 52,529 rupees last month for just working a few hours a day on his stolen laptop? www.wtfhasgottenintofnthisweek.com

No, tanking means doing it deliberately. The magic just suck.

So instead of 10AM players they become 2PM players? If you play better in practice than in a game you are a bench warmer bros.
