Orlando Magic Suffered Unusual Turbulence on Flight


"That was the worst flight I’ve ever been on," veteran PG Rafer Alston said. "Forty straight minutes of turbulence."

As the plane violently rocked, Magic personnel became concerned when the flight crew told the passengers to utilize the shoulder harnesses at their seats if they were available.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said several players vomited and he quipped, "I was about one bump away."

Veteran PG Tyronn Lue said, "It was unbelievable. Man, I was like, ‘I’m going to be like John Madden and take the bus.’ "
