Full story: Orlando Sentinel

Alston pushed the tempo, passed more, shot better and most importantly dribble penetrated way more. He is Magic MVP for this game period. Keep it up Skip.

I agree. Nelson is in this series to replace Johnson, not Alston.

Im tired of people tryin to say Alstons minutes affected his play.. I like Alston, but the point is. Alston is a HOMETOWN shooter, meaning he shoots great during a home game, and horrible on the road.

Game 1 Cleveland Alston 4-10, game 2- 1-7, Game 5 1-10.. It wasn't Jameer.. Just alston isn't a great shooter on the road like at home..

The people who know basketball realized this. The people who listen to ESPN's talking heads ate up their manufactured controversy. You give me hope that there are still some of us out there.
