If you've listened to In The Zone, you probably already know that I consider myself the bus driver of the Bol Bol bandwagon. While I'd like to take credit for being one of the first to believe in what's becoming a growing movement, Bol has had a bit of a cult following going back to his college ball days at Oregon.

Paolo Banchero certainly has been popular since his Duke days..combine that with being drafted number one overall and being thought of as the potential savior of the Magic, make him a candidate. Also, "the real ones know" that Franz Wagner is one of the more underrated young players in the entire league.
Who is the bonafide fan favorite for Magic fans? Kravitz and I discuss the recent overtime win over the Clippers, Bol Bol, and more in the podcast clip below.
