Rebuilding and realizing they might get beat up this season, the Magic created an upbeat slogan: We Will.
Only a handful of games remain, so it's time to update the club's message with next season in mind:
We Will… burn all footage of the 2012-13 season during a mass rally in downtown Orlando.
We Will …not blame Dwight Howard.
Wait a minute. Yes, We Will.
We Will …make sure that center Nic Vucevic toughens up and adds strength.
We Will …also make sure that Nik doesn't drink out of the same bottle between bench presses as Hedo Turkoglu did.
We Will …monitor Big Baby Davis' weight so he doesn't arrive for training camp by barge.
We Will …put everyone on the trading block except Vucevic, Maurice Harkless and Tobias Harris.
Because, like Bogie and Bacall… We Will always have Harris.
We Will …say goodbye to Hedo's agent with a $6-million phone call.
We Will …celebrate the final season of Gilbert Arenas' contract. Gilbert is owed $22.3 million, roughly what the Sacramento Kings are actually worth.
We Will …never forget you Al Barrington, er, Harrington.
We Will …beat out the Charlotte Bobcats and win the Biggest Losers lottery.
We Will …bring along a rabbit's foot, a four-leaf clover and Pat Williams, plus Chesley Sullenberger to pilot home the lottery prize.
We Will …not pay attention to Bobcats owner Michael Jordan sticking out his tongue as the ping-pong balls bounce.
We Will …not trash-talk Michael. Even at 50, Jordan could score 25 now on Orlando.
We Will …not share a speck of our top-secret info about our draft leanings to the Orlando media, which is, apparently, an arm of WikiLeaks. Or We Will have to kill them.
We Will …take point guard Marcus Smart if we have the No. 2 pick. Smart is 6-4, 225 pounds -- or the equivalent of two Jameer Nelsons.
