Orlando Magic Tickets
When you think of the most exciting teams in basketball to see on the court, few teams can currently match the Orlando Magic. Being one of the youngest teams in the NBA, the Orlando Magic has nevertheless managed to assert themselves as a team worth going to see in action. There have been plenty of amazing players to don the Magic uniform. That includes everyone from Shaq's legendary gameplay as well as his showstopping dunks (that would sometimes shatter the backboard) to point guard "Penny" Hardaway and modern players such as Terrence Ross, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic. The team has won two Eastern Conference titles in 1995 and 2009. In the 2018-2019 season, new head coach Steve Clifford brought the team to a division title. With the team reinvigorated and as strong as ever, it is a great time to catch a Magic game. Grab your tickets at StubHub.
