Clifford exit interview proves what we’re all thinking about poor Orlando Magic leadership

Former Orlando Magic head coach, Steve Clifford, gave an interview to the hometown paper about his recent departure from the team after this terrible season. You can read it HERE. Go ahead. I’ll wait.

Clifford took the high road during that interview. This is because he probably wants an opportunity to win with another team that actually has people in the front office that know what they’re doing. Because that’s not what we have here in Orlando right now.

We have a team that still doesn’t have a head coach. That finished dozens of games below .500 this season. And traded away three star players for a number 5 and 8 pair of picks in the upcoming draft.

And on top of that, they’re likely going to hire another assistant to be head coach, who will subscribe to their wack philosophy that has put us in this entire terrible situation.

Now, it’s important to point out that Clifford had to go. Much respect for him for not “riding this into the beach” and giving us another bad season while picking up a paycheck and pretending to care.

But we are also so lost right now. And a bad Orlando Magic team is bad for downtown Orlando. We’re building an entertainment complex for a team with no stars and no coach. Church street will remain empty when it should be full because this team doesn’t know what it’s doing.

Hire Becky Hammon to be the next coach. Someone who is qualified and will make some history. Package those two picks and move up in the draft.

And show us that Clifford had it wrong. Because he’s looking like he knew what we are all thinking.

That this organization is lost.
