The Orlando Magic recently acquired Gilbert Arenas, among other players, in hopes of building a strong team that can win a championship as soon as possible. It took Orlando’s new core a little time to get going, but they seem to be off and running with a couple of big victories over the past week, including one on Christmas Day that snapped the Celtics’ winning streak at 14 games.
As for Arenas, Monday night’s game against the Nets may have given the guard a better understanding of why his new team is called the Magic. Agent Zero (actually it’s Agent One now) hit nearly a full-court shot at the buzzer in the first half. Unfortunately the shot didn’t count, as you basketball geniuses have figured out by reading the title of the post. In any event, it was pretty impressive.

Now if I were reffing the game, I would have given the Magic one point for the difficulty of the shot. That would also make me a cheater and a fraud, so it would be a nice way to get to know my peers and start fitting in.Google+
