This year marks the 25th Anniversary of Orlando Magic basketball. The team itself will be celebrating with look backs at the team's stories history and recognition of the team's greatest players (Nick Anderson will be up next for his night Friday against the Celtics). Orlando Magic Daily loves celebrating Magic history (probably too much). And so each day this season, we will dig into Magic history a little bit and share the team's history.
The Magic made their 2014 home debut with a 110-90 beating of the newly rebranded New Orleans Pelicans. It was a great night for the Magic on the court and off it with Tracy McGrady receiving a warm reception.
It all started with the Hall of Fame announcement in the morning and the opening night festivities. That included a video commemorating the Magic's history.
In case you were not at Amway Center, here is the official intro video for the Magic from Opening Night. Enjoy!
