YOU ARE RIGHT! THERE ARE a LOT OF MORONS POSTING HERE WHO DONT KNOW BASKETBALL, SO-CALLED MAGIC FANS and HYPOCRITES. WHEN HEDO MAKES EACH LAYUP AND 3PT PLAY I HOPE YOU ALL SUCK UP YOUR UTTER NONSENSE!
Hedo better deliver because his game has been really lacking in the playoffs this year. I would love for him to find his legs and have a great game. It won't erase the stinker games he has had but it will sure get him some love and props if he does have a big game.

Seriously though Hedo has been playing bad. For you go call people morons for pointing that out just shows that you are a nuthugger and you can't really assess Hedo's peformance properly.

Brian, I about choked when you said Hedo is our go to guy. He's a good player, but he's only a role player. After watching him and the rest of them clank 3pt attempts off the rim in the 5th game, it was clear that they needed to go inside to their "go to guy." When they finally figured that out, Howard was really scary in the 6th game. Please Mike, Who do you think opposing teams really fear?
The "go to guy" is Dwight Howard. What/who the heck made you say that? I think you've been hanging around too much with the wrong Mike.

No. Just another lie.
LOL why do you think i rejected his offer? I mean, i planned and did sit lower bowl center, but if i believed him i would've taken them and sold them or given them to friends... I gave him time to grow on me, but the guy is a complete joke. Just as he enjoys enraging people, i enjoy watching people make him look like a fool. He's worse than LMAO imo because lmao only posts once per game. Besides, with lmao we know it's because he has a homosexual crush on JJ.

I figured he was lying right off the bat because when it first happened I gave him my email address and he never contacted me. He's just a troll that likes messing with people.

I agree, that kid is amazing. She sang for them 3 times and all three times the Magic won. I was close enough to see the players faces and I think she had an effect on them too inspiring them as well as the crowd. Hope they bring her back she's a lucky charm.

As a season ticket holder I think the reason the Magic won 2 home games against Boston was the 7 year old girl who sang the National Anthem both times. The crowd really gets into it. When she stepped on the floor Thursday we all went nuts. I hope she sings at home before Sunday's game and does her emphasis on ..the land of the Free and the home of the Brave. Wow!
I got chills when she sang she was the best Anthem singer they have had.

I think that Courtney Lee or Rashard Lewis have to be one of our go to guys in a tight game. I agree with the previous post. Hedo is no hero when it come to playing consistant and sound basketball. I have never seen a player take so many driving shots and just throw it up without any chance of scoring,so many times. Rashard is good but he has to be in a more focused attack mode, where he drives more to the basket instead of those turn around jumpers. Personally, I like the rookie Courney Lee as the go to guy. He is very aggressive. He doesn't just throw the ball up and he has nerves of steel.
GO Magic!!!!!!!
What am I missing here? Hedo, Courtney, Rashard? There all very good, that's why they're in the finals. But when their 3's are clanking, "Who ya gonna call?" When the game's on the line, who ya gonna give the ball to? Who can take over and dominate a game when all the marbles are on the table? Dwight Howard, that's who. Smilin' Dwight, he's the guy other teams REALLY fear. Dwight Howard is the Orlando Magic's "Go To Guy." He's the guy who say's "This is my team and my responsibility."
Am I missing something here?
What are you people smoking?
