Relive one of Orlando’s finest seasons with the premiere of ‘Inside the Magic: 2008-2009 Run to the Finals’ on FOX Sports Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 18, 2019) – FOX Sports Florida, the exclusive television home of the Orlando Magic, will premiere an all-new episode of “Inside the Magic” this coming Saturday, Jan. 19, upon conclusion of Orlando’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. “Inside the Magic: 2008 – 2009 Run to the Finals” brings Magic fans behind the curtain during Orlando’s run to the 2009 NBA Finals, as told by the members of the team. Former teammates Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick, Rashard Lewis, Head Coach Stan Van Gundy and General Manager Otis Smith are just a few of the key individuals “Inside the Magic” interviewed to look back on one of most memorable seasons in franchise history.

From discovering the mindset and strategy that went into building the team, starting with selecting Howard in the 2004 NBA Draft, to finding out why Van Gundy was the right coach to lead the squad, this special hour-long episode is a must-watch for Magic fans. “Inside the Magic” relives the ups and downs of the regular season that saw three teammates get chosen to represent Orlando at the All-Star Game, a starting point guard go down with a shoulder injury and ultimately, the team elevating their play to prove prognosticators wrong on their way to the NBA Finals.
