The 1992–93 NBA season was the Magic's fourth season in the National Basketball Association. This season held a lot of promise as Shaquille O'Neal was drafted first overall by the Magic in the 1992 NBA draft. Meanwhile, the Magic signed free agent Donald Royal during the offseason. There were predictions that O'Neal would become the next dominant center in the NBA. Shaq became an instant superstar with merchandising that rivaled only Michael Jordan. The Magic started to show improvement winning eight of their first eleven games, but then lost six straight afterwards. In December, the team acquired Steve Kerr from the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, the Magic had various problems with injuries as midway through the season, Dennis Scott ruptured his Achilles tendon. The Magic lost a tie-breaker for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference to the Indiana Pacers with a 41–41 record.
