Twenty five years ago Orlando got an NBA team, all thanks to a man named Jim Hewitt. The sports landscape in Orlando was forever changed when Jim told Pat Williams, the Orlando Magic co-founder, “Orlando is the place to be”. In 1986, Hewitt brought investors together and talked Orlando city officials into approving an arena project, originally called the Orlando Arena.
