The Majic had 6 players in double digits in scoring and used to dedication to former player Marcus Brown who passed away in Feb as motivation. They were all focused from the tip said coach Brandon! You can always find ways to get off track or take things for granted when you have won 3 Championships in a row. This team is different said Coach Brandon. We have veteran players like BJ Puckett, Adrien Borders, Javon Randolph, Reggie Anderson and Wayne Arnold but we also have some new young guys right out of college with something to prove. First year player Brandon Obrien from Clark Atlanta who scored 30 Points and grabbed 8 rebounds went right to work and hats off to the veteran players who played unselfish and let him go to work.
"We saw a miss match and went right after it" said coach Brandon. The Majic also got solid games from Javon Randolph 21pts 8 assists and Wayne Arnold 22pts and BJ Puckett with 18 pts and 12 rebounds. Reggie Anderson and Antron Pippen also scored 11 each and Alex Weeks had 9 and a poster dunk that brought the crown to its feet in the 3rd quarter. On a night when you had a NBA playoff game 7 and a big fight the attendance was a little down but the fans that were there and DJ Joseph C bringing the beats along with one of our most talented teams its was fun from the start. This one was for Marcus Brown said Coach Brandon during the halftime tribute. If your free next Saturday and you want to watch one of the best Minor/Pro teams in the nation then come out to Bogan Park next Sat night at 7:30pm.
Last night was the first game coach David Akin was not on the sidelines for the Majic as he accepted a full-time job with Milton HS but Coach Steve Melnick stepped right in a coached great. The Majic travel to Rome GA next Friday to play the 2-0 Gladiators at Shorter College before our next home game next home game Sat at Bogan Park!

Majic Welcomes a new head coach - Steve Melnick
Gwinnett Majic would like to announce assistant coach Steve Melnick has been promoted to Head Coach effective immediately. Coach Steve has worked with the Majic program for two years now. Coach David Akin took a job with Milton HS a few weeks back so it opened the door for coach Melnick to step in. I don't think any of us were expecting Coach Akin to leave so quickly but we are proud of him and his new job at Milton. Steve has been helping me with Clinics for 4 years now and has done a little bit of everything in this organization. Steve knows what kind of program we run and knows most of the players and what they bring to the table. Steve has stepped up in the last few weeks since Dave has left and now it's his show. Once I hand the head coach duties over I will make comments and give advice but I let the coach make the moves and call the shots. I have full confidence Steve will guide this team to another title this year! Congratulations Coach Steve!

Three-peat for Gwinnett Majic Hoops
The end was anticlimatic, yet still pretty satisfying.
Playing some of their best basketball of the season, the Gwinnett Majic won their third straight World Basketball Association championship this past weekend with a 113-91 rout of the Conyers Court Kings in the finals. Up 71-41 at halftime, the local team cruised to the title behind three-time league MVP B.J. Puckett.
The Dacula grad had 21 points and 14 rebounds, despite spending more time on the bench than usual in the blowout. The 6-foot-9 Puckett had 33 points and 13 boards in a 103-96 semifinal win over the Rome Gladiators.
"B.J., it's all centered around him," said Majic head coach David Akin, a Berkmar grad.
Shiloh grad Jon Mandeldove also had a huge title game with 25 points, 11 rebounds and six blocked shots. Norcross' Reggie Anderson (14 points, four steals) and Berkmar's Adrien Borders (14 points, five assists) also were big contributors.
Fellow Gwinnett products Alex Weekes and Mike Konanec of Berkmar and Jesse Wheeler of Duluth also were on the championship team this season.
"It just goes to show you how much basketball talent came through Gwinnett and is still coming through Gwinnett," Akin said.
