Per ESPN, Shaq is a legitimate candidate to become the Magic’s GM and Doc Rivers sits on their dream list to replace Stan Van Gundy:
The mere mention of Shaq, even if he turns out to be something more than a courtesy candidate, surely (and sadly) overshadows the most interesting part of Broussard’s notebook-on-TV report, which revealed that the Magic’s secret dream is trying to find a way to convince Doc Rivers to leave the Boston Celtics to come back to Central Florida.
Now THAT makes sense. It’s the longest of long shots with Doc only just finishing Year 1 of a new five-year, $35 million contract to coach the Celts, but Orlando’s thinking there is steeped in sound logic. If they could somehow convince Rivers to rejoin the Magic — even if Doc insisted on a management-only role — Dwight would surely be wowed. And the number of true stars in the Magic Kingdom would instantly double.
Don’t have a clue how the Magic plan to convince Boston to let Doc out of his contract, but why let details get in the way? The mere idea is the smartest we’ve heard out of Orlando in years.
Yeah, and I’m sure the Bobcats would love to sign Kevin Durant, and I know I want a night with Kate Upton. Those things aren’t happening either, although Kate, if you’re reading this, hi.
Alright. Let’s move on to more important things, like what I’m going to eat for dinner.
