Orlando was awarded an expansion franchise in 1989, but actually had a name all picked out before they were confirmed to have
the team. Never hurts to be a little cocky I guess, especially in the basketball universe.
To get their name the prospective owners held a name the team contest. Hundreds of names were submitted with Challengers, a
reference to the region's space program, being the most popular. The ownership group must not have been too keen on naming their team
after a space shuttle, and instead decided to go with Magic as their team name.
