“That’s what it’s all about, just inspiring kids, being role models,” the second-year Magic forward said. “I'm sure they are having the time of their lives right now."

Imagine you’re a kid, you’ve recently started playing basketball and Evan Fournier gives you ball handling advice, Nikola Vucevic shows you how to box out and grab rebounds, Jonathan Isaac explains to you the art of making driving layups and Steve Clifford demonstrates how to get into a proper defensive stance.

A dream come true for young players and fans who idolize their favorite sports heroes, right?Well, believe it or not, this was a reality for 75 children of Magic season ticket holders on Thursday. They were on the Magic’s practice court at Amway Center learning the fundamentals of the game from the team’s coaches and players.
