ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic could have a 6-1 record since James Borrego became their head coach.
An argument can be made that they should be 6-1.

Scroll to the :19 mark and the chippy, borderline dirty play escalates to a vicious low-blow by Von Wafer. Wafer exits the court in style – by tossing a chair into the stands.
Wafer played in 58 games for the 2010-11 Celtics. Unfortunately, his most memorable moment may have been a locker room confrontation with Delonte West. Or maybe it was the time he posed after missing this...
