Say Goodbye To The House Shaq Built

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — We thought it only right that we all take a moment to say goodbye to the house Shaquille O’Neal, Penny Hardaway, Lil’ Penny, our main man Dennis Scott, Nick Anderson and the rest of the old school Orlando Magic built.

The Amway Center, the house Dwight Howard built, is fully operational and one of the finest basketball buildings on the planet. But we’ll always have a soft spot in our hearts for the old place:

    shouldnt they have donated or used that as say a care facility or even a rec center for kids?

  2. Chucky says:

    I think with the economy the way it is. The league should just spend more money but expanding the arenas. For example, Instead of the Lakers moving to the Staples Center back in 2000. They should have expanded the Great Western Forum! The house Magic built and it’s still atanding today. I miss the Forum!

      Damn right, made me feel the same… Where were the members of the Bush family on the day of the implosion of the old arena ?… Maybe it could spur a war against Iran…

  6. To me NBA should kept same buildings because the heritage. Same case in Seatle Supersonics. ………………….
