    Absolutely fantastic with the 24 nationally televised games for the Magic.

    Needless to say, the Magic more than deserve it.

    The schedule is a good one,having only 2 four game west coast trips is really good (Its those 5-6 game trips that suck). Then all the national attention,thats pretty cool to.
