Magic stay second in East with win over Bucks

These are the games that are largely forgettable --- as long as you win them. A loss, however, to a mediocre opponent can haunt when the playoff brackets are announced. Full Story

I would keep Turkoglu as well. Yes he does make some stupid decisions at times, but he can create off the dribble and make things happen offensively. Plus he is one of the better clutch performers in the fourth quarter.
I'd miss turk if we let him go... unfortunately, if we ever want dwight to develop into a 4th qtr beast, turk needs to go because right now we're using him like he's kobe/mj/lbj in the 4th (worked last year, but this year it's been a gamble).

If Dwight ever develops a mid range jump shot he will totally dominate. Look for him to average 28 points a game at the very least...especially if he improves at the free throw line.

I mean right now he is averaging 21 or 22 a game with no mid range jumper and being horrific from the free throw line.

Dwight could easily have these kind of numbers: 28 ppg, 15 rpg, 5 apg, and 4blks per game.

Gentleman, Next week is going to be a tough week with MIA, TOR, CLE and ATL.
If we make it without loosing a game second place is assured.
Boston only plays CHA and ATL .
We have to assume that Boston will win both games and for us to stay in second is imperative that we win all 4 of our games.
Any thoughts on this?

That is a huge task to accomplish but if we take it one game at a time we should be ok. Cleveland is the only team in that list that is actually on par with Orlando.

That remains to be seen my friend.

If you guys are going to be champions you better hurry while your team is still in Cleveland. Lebron(your team) is moving on soon.

wow, people that dont know what they are talking about are fun to read. Lebron is staying in cleveland, the only people who say he is moving to another team are media members in New york and lebron/cleveland doubters.

Sorry Kenny but he is out of there. Lebron is as good as gone my friend. His personality craves attention so he will head to the larger city market New York where he can play King James. It will break your heart but you will be OK in the long run.

(you just won't have a team any more) ;)

lebron has already signed one extension since he entered the league, the only reason he would leave is if he felt that the team he was going to was more dedicated to winning a championship, or it the team he was going to was iin a better postion to win multiple championships with him as the centerpiece...lebron wants to be the best to ever play the game, and he knows he cant even be mentioned with the jordans, birds, and magics if he doesnt have at least 1 ring...and right now, cleveland is in a better position to win a rng than any team that has the means to sign him.

LeBron hasn't been helping the rumors this whole year... I see him moving if he doesn't win a championship or if cleveland doesn't sign another star like wade/bosh to join him. Remember he made it to the finals with a crappy cavs team, he knows he can move and succeed elsewhere, so something big will have to happen for him to stay.

See you think you know what Lebron is thinking but you don't. Neither do I but what we do know is Lebron loves attention and the whole "King James" crap. Lebron is going to head to the largest market that he can which is New York. King is about $$$ and he knows he can get the most $$$ and attention for his King James personna in New York.

Deal with it Kenny it is going to happen. You can then jump on board the Magic bandwagon. We are going places in Orlando.

Lets face it Cleveland fans:
It all come down to Money and fame their is no such thing as team loyalty any more.

We here in Orlando went through it with Shag as he said "the big fish in a little pond" and then moved to Los Angeles looking to become a movie star.

Lebron only has so many years to accomplish his goals and nail the big bucks.

Your only chance to keep him is if you win it all and then that chance is only slight.

As a Magic fan that suffer through the shag debacle I wish you all well but I know better.

Im sure he is ready to leave cleveland. Hes been there his whole life. I was there 2 hours a couple years ago and was ready to leave quickly. He and jay-Z have something in the works, no doubt about it.

Kenny,

I'm pretty sure that WHEN Lebron leaves Cleveland the Magic fans will welcome you here as a fan. Having tasted the pain of seeing our franchise leave we have more than enough compassion for soon to be disappointed Cleveland fans.

Now I understand why you hang around on a Magic board Kenny. No sweat we will embrace you in due time.
