Orlando Magic Playoff Details
The Orlando Magic have had their share of playoff success, thanks largely to the presence of some of the best big men in the NBA during their respective eras. These shot swatting, slam dunking titans have combined with elite perimeter players to make the Magic a very dangerous team when the playoffs come around, also leading to rivalries to develop among some of the game's greats.
Perhaps the most intriguing team that the Orlando Magic ever sent to the playoffs came in the mid-1990s, when Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway went from being one of the youngest dynamic duos in NBA history to elite level players who could carry a team to the NBA Finals. They got to the Finals together in 1994, where they went up against the Houston Rockets. And despite the Rockets winning that series, seeing O'Neal go head-to-head with the great Hakeem Olajuwon was one of those moments that NBA fans will just never forget.
The Magic of that era were so much fun, mostly because of how limitless their potential felt. And given the career of O'Neal and the level of talent that Hardaway played with, it's not hard to see why it felt that way. In an era where small guards and big men often formed these sorts of duos, it wouldn't be a stretch to suggest that O'Neal and Hardaway could have been the best of them if they had remained on a roster together.
Speaking of big men pairing with someone on the perimeter to form a tough-to-beat squad, the Orlando Magic of the late-2000s fell into that category as well. They did so with Dwight Howard and Hedo Turkoglu, who were able to merge the old-school back to the basket scorer's approach through Howard with the emerging reliance on the three-point shot through Turkoglu. It didn't always look pretty, but the Magic figured out a way to get to the NBA Finals with those two as their core, putting up a great fight with the Los Angeles Lakers once they got there.
During that era of Magic playoff basketball, a rivalry developed between Orlando and the Boston Celtics. The two teams were often among the best in the Eastern Conference, and as such often met up in the playoffs. For those teams, that often meant that Howard would be opposed by Celtics big man Kendrick Perkins. And when those two locked horns, fireworks were likely to follow.
