Orlando Magic 2014-15 Thread

Orlando Magic vs. Miami Heat: Round 1

MIAMI -- Where's Don King when you need him?

Actually, the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic are doing just fine on their own stoking the flames of a simmering in-state rivalry that's reached inferno status entering Friday's showdown at AmericanAirlines Arena.

"Our personal relationships are great," Magic center Dwight Howard insists, despite rolling his eyes at every mention of the Heat during the offseason. "But when we step on the floor, we're not friends anymore. And we're trying to take their heads off."

Makes perfect sense, doesn't it? By a show of hands, who doesn't get the urge at least four times a year to decapitate a best friend?

Don't worry, Dwight. The Heat feel just as fondly about the Magic. Welcome to unconditional love in the Sunshine State, where the Heat and Magic are about as harmonious these days as Democrats and Republicans and have as much in common as South Beach and Downtown Disney.

Why would you paste the entire article, and then link it?

Why do you got to be a hater?

Actually, I've been wondering about this.

Has the webzone ever received any complaints from newspapers about users pasting entire articles within threads? They'd no doubt prefer we paste a short blurb with a link.

I was told a long time ago to post links w/ full articles.

I think you misunderstood. Instead of posting a full article, post a blurb with a link. That's always been the rule.

Really? See that surprises me. If you post the whole article other users will not click the link ... thereby reducing the traffic to the original newspaper's website.

It seems the best thing to do is post a paragraph and a link.
