Last year, the Magic were knocked out in the first round of the playoffs by the Toronto Raptors 4-1. This year, the Magic appear to be heading back to the playoffs and will either take on the Milwaukee Bucks or Toronto Raptors, depending on if the team can overtake Brooklyn for the 7th seed.
How valuable is this playoff experience? Dennis Neumann explains that even if you're bounced early, the experience is still valuable, "Anyone that watches the NBA playoffs knows it's a different game. It's different than the regular season and rightly so. You earn your way there and then once you're there (we've seen it over the years with Magic teams), you see guys develop their games from the experience of playing in the postseason. It's such a different game and the intensity is heightened so much and the experience, I think for those guys to get that, which Magic players, a lot of them got it for the first time last year, I think the value, there's no question about it."
