i don't think Orlando is a small market. Memphis, Milwuakee, to a lesser extent Cleveland and OKC: those places seem like small markets. Orlando seems like a middle of the pack franchise as far as market size is concerned.

Actually, Orlando is a smaller market than Cleveland and in the bottom half of the NBA.

I think when Dwight talks about big markets, he means top 2, maybe top 5 places. LA, NY, maybe Chicago, Dallas, SF?

It doesn't matter if Orlando is top half or bottom half, it clearly doesn't compare to the very top.
And sure, Magic got media exposure last year, because, you know, they had Dwight Howard. If he goes to Charlotte, they'll likely get even more exposure because Charlotte will have Dwight Howard. Besides, change = media stories.

But the very top markets have their advantages. Especially when you factor in Magic's cranky contract situation.
