TODAY JIM SAID THIS:

Yeah but David I am gonna GUARANTEE a Sixers win tonight. That's right folks. I

GUARANTEE a Philly victory tonight.

And after tonights game I expect someone to save these words and repost them to the

forum where I can soak in my much deserved props.

Save this GUARANTEE here folks. And repost it after the game.

Iguodala and Miller will both have their way tonight folks.

Once again the 3 point shooting will not be there for the Magic. Turkoglu and Lewis

will both be non factors.

This is an easy call to make folks. NEXT!

“If you say it, back it up”

good for the magic getting home court advantage back, if it hold true the magic should win the series at home in 7. I still have my doubts about the magic going past the second round with what they have showed so far.

Did you hear the Sixers coach claim Dwight was in the lane all night? What a crock. SVG had a great response during his interview.

Magic looked more like their 59-win selves tonight. Hope Lee is fine, as that would be a huge loss. Boston's showing determination in their series with the Bulls. Be interesting to see if either Magic or Celtics win Game 6, and if either team gets extra rest. Having played three OT games, I imagine Boston could use an extra day or two before facing Orlando...

I have to respect Philly these guys play hard and really want to win. We are getting their very best shot but we just have more talent than they do especially at the center position. Howard is a monster and is only 23. JJ and MP were 2-9. Sooner or later our bench not coming through is going to kill us. AJ and Gortat filled in well when we needed it. Once again JJ gets a chance and flops. He hits a couple of shots and this game is a blowout. Hope Lee can play, we cant afford JJ and MP's inconsistantcies. I think we can go up to Philly and finish this out now. Hedo not a good game but both him and Lewis look like they are getting over their injuries and personal issues.

Wow you kind of sound like an dummy yourself. Who cares its nice to be able to call a game. So maybe you should calm down a little bit. But all in all we are on the same side here.

The hit cheer of the night was - Ref, you suck - which interrupted a jump rope game during a time out. Ref you suck was repeated by the crowd many times. The Houston, Portland and Boston coaches were just fined $25,000 for comments critical of the refs. Fire all the refs and replace them with High School refs. Maybe the High School refs could see how Howard is abused on every play.

Stan is in a feisty mood in the post-game press conference tonight... you go SVG!!!

Tony DiLeo sounded like a moron - begging for calls and whining and crying.

NBA refs are in a professional league of their own when it comes to bad calls. The double foul called with 5 minutes left in the Boston-Chicago game which gave Ray Allen his 6th foul is a perfect case in point. And then again last night in the LA-Utah game, there were baffling no-calls at the end.

Barkley and Webber are calling for Dwight to be suspended in game six for that elbow. In fact, that was the only highlight TNT bothered to play at halftime. No actually game play, just Dwight throwing an elbow. Give me a break.

TURN OFF TNT!!!(Unless the magic are playing, which is rarely.)

few things to address one i respect the philly players but i have lost all respect for the philly coach to leave a remark like that after 1/2 of the fouls on dwight are border line flagerant fouls where there almost throwing him down to the floor by yanking his arms and he wants to bitch about howard moving around near the post just shows you deserve to lose the series thats number one

number 2

who would expect jim to respond or to come on here as i called it fokes as everyone knows thats his moronic self!he is as good as making predictions as ms cleo and we all know the legal ramifications that she went through lol jim is just another moron who likes to post 100 comments back to back to just to read his moronic ideas to himself

That's weak schit if Dwight gets suspended a game for the elbow. NBA is officiated for pansies, if they get upset about that.
