Rashard Lewis was part of the Orlando Magic team that played in the NBA Finals in 2009. The former Magic sharpshooter talked on aν Instagram Live Q&A about the current team, which is bound to make the second consecutive playoff appearance, should the season returns.

Lewis is a big fan of the team’s young talent, including Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz, who can lead the team to new highs in a couple of next seasons.

“What I want to tell the Magic fans is you have to be patient. Nothing happens overnight. It’s a building process,” Lewis said, per

“I think they have great young talent that they’ve drafted the last couple years. It’s going to be some bumps in the road. A lot of ups and downs. That’s a part of life, that’s a part of basketball. You just have to stick with them like they stuck with us and eventually they will break through and I’m sure they will break through soon.”
