During the 1989-1990 season the National Basketball Association added four new teams to the league in an attempt to do an expansion within the league. During this expansion the league introduced the Orlando Magic to the world. This new Orlando based team was the first ever professional sports team to be in the Florida city. It didn’t take long for the Orlando Magic to grow within the league and to establish themselves as a dominant force within the NBA. By 1992, just a few short years after they were formed, the team was viewed around the league as a dominant force with the National Basketball Association. This was thanks in big part to the team’s 1992 draft pick when they got Shaquille O’Neal as their first round pick.
Today the team is still seen as such a dominant force within the NBA, particularly in the Eastern Conference where they currently play. During their time as an organization the team has won several conference championships, made NBA finals appearances and more providing that despite being relatively new in the NBA; they have a reason for being one of the most feared in the entire organization. A great deal of this reputation is thanks in large part to the number of big name and hall of fame players that have come from this organization in the past including Jameer Nelson, Dwight Howard and Shaquille O’Neal.
It is big players such as this that have not only helped the Magic find a great deal of success but they have also helped the Magic garner a huge following and a massive fan base. On game nights, fans from around the city of Orlando will find the Amway Center overflowing with tens of thousands of screaming fans every home game night. Whether the Orlando Magic are taking on any of the teams in their conference of one of their rivals you can always expect a big matchup when the Orlando Magic come to play. If you want to get Orlando Magic tickets, you will want to make sure that you get yours in plenty of time. Since the Magic are the only professional sports team in the city of Orlando their tickets often sell out quickly far in advance of game in order to make sure they can see the Magic play live.
