In terms of NBA franchises, the Orlando Magic are one of the youngest in the league.

Formed in 1989, the Florida team has only been in the NBA for 28 years, but have already had a huge amount of talent walk through their doors, including two Hall of Fame centers in the form of Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard.

But for as much talent that has played for Orlando, an equal amount have left them and went on to do bigger and better things in the league, as proven by Redditor pluginmatty.

Pluginmatty has formed an NBA roster comprising of players that have previously played for the Magic, and have left the team, either through trade or free agency, and the team he's come up with is pretty damn good. So good in fact, it may hurt some Orlando fans who are reading this right now to know that they could've had this team if they managed their franchise a little better.

How well do you think a team with these players would go? An eighth-seed in the East? 45-50 wins? NBA Finalists?
