It’s been a while since the Orlando Magic have really mattered in the NBA. But Paolo Banchero is ready to change that as he presents himself as someone who is a “savior” of the franchise, something the Magic obviously hope will come true. If nothing else, Paolo Banchero loves the fact that he now plays on the same team as the guys he watched as a kid, particularly Markelle Fultz and Terrence Ross.
“I grew up watching t ross. (Terrence Ross ed.) and markelle (Markelle Fultz ed.) to the Washington Huskies going crazy at Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. Now we’re on the same team and it’s amazing haha 🔥”.

Paul Banchero played in college for the Duke Blue Devils, but he’s also from Seattle, so before he became Mike Krzyzewski’s centerpiece, he was apparently a fan of the Washington Huskies. Unfortunately for the Huskies, Paul Banchero’s sweet memories of seeing Ross and Fultz were not enough to successfully recruit him as he decided to take his talents to Durham.
Now with the Magic, Banchero’s goal will be to do the best for the team and take them immediately to the playoffs where they have been out in 8 of the last 10 seasons. The Orlando Magic have not gone beyond the first round the last four times they have made the playoffs, dating back to the 2010-2011 NBA season. Along with the likes of Franz Wagner, Cole Anthony, Wendell Carter Jr. and Mo Bamba, Paul Banchero will try to lead the young Orlando Magic team to greater success, starting in his rookie year.
