1) Life for Jameer Nelson has changed drastically since he was at St. John's 10 years ago. It has changed dramatically since the team began its rebuild. But if he could not handle it, he would not have signed up for it and kept his family in what has become his second home, Dick Jerardi of the Philadelphia Daily News writes.
3) Sam Vecenie of Fear the Sword and Tyler Lashbrook of Orlando Pinstriped Post exchanged e-mails to talk about Marcus Smart of Oklahoma State.
4) Michael Carter-Williams is the leader of the pack when it comes to NBA rookies so far this year, John Smallwood of the Philadelphia Daily News writes.
5) The Magic are not worried about Playoff seedings quite yet, Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post writes. They are a half game back of the eighth seed, for what it is worth.
6) Al Harrington kind of wants to forget last season with the Magic, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
7) The Magic are in day two of the longest road trip in the team's 25-year history, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com writes.
