The Magic hired Scott Skiles before this season, and he guided Orlando to an underwhelming – though not unexpected – 35-47 record.


Um, what?

The Magic’s front office has been notoriously demanding. It was possible to see a season that fell short of the playoffs leaving the brass unsatisfied.

But this comes so far out of left field, I wonder what else is going on here – especially with Skiles resigning, not the team firing him.
