The ads remind me less of New Coke and more of Dan and Dave in the Olympics. For those not old enough, we had these two decathaletes shoved down our throats by Reebok. Dan vs. Dave. Right up until one of them failed to even qualify for the Olympics. The Magic can slam the door, but if they let the Cavs off the hook...well, we haven't seen anything yet is my fear when it comes to Kobe and Lebron.

Lets talk about "Too much respect". Somehow this hack made the all star team, thats too much respect. I am sick and tired of loosers like Mo Williams putting a guarantee on games. Im glad his eye got busted, I hope he goes down again tonight.

Mo Williams, a loud mouth guy who announced he guaranteed that Cavs will win the series and that it is no way for Magic to beat Cavs 4 times in the series.

Again, Mo complained that Magic gets "too much respect"? What!

Give Magic a break.
So far, Magic beat Cavs 10 out of 14 games. Why? Because Magic is a very good team!

Mo can always make a new career as a comedian once his contract is up. AJ got in his head with that elbow, and the Cavs won't have any new answers for their lack of match-ups.

If the Magic are up by 20 and time is almost up in the forth quarter Mo might take a swing at Anthony (knowing its all over)

Williams statements ARE welcome... they DRIVE US!

Teams with one superstar win ONLY when paired with a GOOD SUPPORTING cast. Remember Jordan; he had Pippen, and Grant, Paxton, etc... San Antonio had a super, Duncan, supported by TWO very good players, Parker and Manu Ginibili. Also, Kobe, when the Lakers won, had Shack, plus a good surrounding team. Even now, the Lakers have Gasol, Odom and Ariza to back Kobe, although their reliability it's still an issue...

LeBron has Williams, BUT, Williams is NO Pippen, a Shack, or even a Parker... He's making very close to his average max, 15 to 18 points per game. The rest of the team has maxed out! They CAN'T do anything more! They just can't. They can... are, and WILL be shut down by better players.

The Magic, in contrast have PLENTY of SUPPORT within the TEAM. Turk, Lewis, Pitruos, and Lee are a couple of notches ABOVE their supporting cast, just like LeBron is (for now...) above Howard. Above all, they play group, unselfish ball. And when Cleveland tried to guard ALL four, they left Alston, who proceeded to burn them for 18 points. And he's the WEAK link in the Magic team! Then there's the Magic bench which is so much stronger and reliable, that it has outscored the Cavs 3 to1.

Williams statements can't change those facts, and in fact only help the Magic...

There you Magic fans go again. I hope you stop crying long enough to enjoy what remains of your series lead. You've only got four hours left before your second-tier team loses the lead for good.

"Second-tier team"?? Lol There must be something in the water up there that's frying you people's brain cells. If it wasn't for a lucky, fade-away, buzzer beating three by Queen James, your beloved, over-hyped, over-matched Cavs would be faced with the very real possibility of being swept tonight at Amway.
P.S Trashtalking when your team has lost 10 out of the last 14 to us really makes you look moronic.
Go Magic!!!

Well, if Mo makes his shot in game 1 and Lebron misses his shot in game 2, then it would be Magic 2-1, and this would be an entirely different series than it is now (Magic currently being up 2-1 and all).
