Do you want to know why the Cavs have been called more fouls? DWIGHT HOWARD..MIKE BROWN MADE A GAME PLAN TO FOUL DWIGHT EVERYTIME HE GETS THE BALL..There is no way Lebron should be shooting 20 free throws a game..its ridiculous how gets calls. The only reason the Cavs have been in any games is because of the fouls James gets..It seems if somebody breathes on him wrong a foul is called.
Same goes with Howard, except he can bowl people over by lowering his shoulder and pushing off with his off forearm and the foul is ALWAYS on the Cavs - even when they are just standing there with their arms straight up - so it goes both ways - wake the hell up.

Basically Agree Brandon, however lj SHOULD get 20 FTs a game, and they should ALL be BEFORE the end of the 3rd quarter, because he should foul out by then.
The Magic, like Mike Brown, MUST have a foul STRATEGY to foul out Lj AND PROTECT dh. The Magic must go after him and STAY after him. We need to send substitute after substiture after him and wear him out.
The Magic's foul strategy MUST go both ways. On defense to hit Lj and prevent him from making easy shots (because dh backs off for fear of fouling) up the middle. On offense, we need to send offensive players at lj to force HIM to guard or foul.

Cavs didn't have to cheat in order to beat your scrub Hawks team. Get out of that east Atlanta hood and get some class hood rat.

Hey ! Having a great time at the game !

I LOVE this tweeting thing. Am I tweeting, now ? Is that what they call it ?

The "foul strategy" as you guys call it, works for James because HE'S ACTUALLY RUNNING TOWARD THE BASKET WITH THE BALL. I can't seem to get Dwight to do that. He stands around, and somebody passes the ball to him, but he doesn't go far with it, so it's kinda hard for him to ACTUALLY GET FOULED MAKING A SHOT.

And as for Dwight making foul shots, he's gotten better at it, but it's still smart to use a Hacky-Dwight strategy against him, since otherwise he'll just dunk it for two. So instead, he only hits fifty to seventy percent of the points he SHOULD be getting.

Whoops -- I just missed the beer vendor. I gotta go. WISH US LOTSA LUCK.

The difference is that I have enough class to accept it if it happens and not call for someone to injure their star player. I will also congratulate them for having the better team instead of crying that they cheated, like you do. Matter of fact, if the Magic hold on to win, I'll be pulling for them in the finals. You on the other hand are a classless ghetto rat and a punk.

Reggie Miller is STUNNINGLY FULL OF S%!T.

"LeBron had to play SO MANY MINUTES IN THIS SERIES, THAT'S WHY THEY LOST, etc."

The Magic starters had to play 200 MORE MINUTES PER MAN THAN THE CAVALIERS TO GET TO THIS POINT.

I'm no Magic fan, but they beat the Cavaliers to a pulp. They deserve to advance.

And a broken Celtics team took the Magic to seven. The Cavaliers barely made six. Pierce can be proud of that.

That's really funny hood rat. I know for a fact you live in the ghetto of east Atlanta. I, on the other hand, live in beautiful southwest Florida right down the street from the beach. Oh, in response to your other lame post, I have no interest at all in living anywhere in Ohio. Thanks for playing though. Look forward to sweeping you guys again next year unless someone else beats us to the punch.
