Not so fast, Philly has only won game 1.
They finish the season as a very hot team, but I'm not sure they are good enough to beat Detroit.

It will be interesting to follow...

So you are saying Fred that the Magic can't beat Philly.
Yes lets face reality right now the Pistons are down 0-1 to Philly that means they lost home court advantage to Philly everything has changed.
So Fred what were you saying about reality???

Explain to me why this was a negative post? The Toronto news papers were saying that the Raptors cannot beat the Magic.
Sounds really positive to me for the Magic.
Not your post.
I meant that was a negative post on that newspaper for toronto....I just put them down instead of putting something positive.

Now this part of your post fits LMAO to a T as in You have a moronic attitude
So we have learned that you hate Redick and all those white Duke basketball players. Your words not mine.
Plus you don't like Coach SVG. Anybody that you like besides your self. No I thought so.
You are a total fool. For months on end all I have ever wanted is JJ to get a chance. I now want him traded, period. He will never get a shot here.

But you did get 2/3's of your response correct... I hate Van Gundy he only has 2 seasons plus 21 games as an NBA head coach.

Once again: He was 42-40 1st year.
He was 59-21 when Riley got him Shaq.
That next season he went 11-10. He got fired and they put him back in an office where he belongs.

Lastly...I like Duke and all the things it stands for and I like many things...and, YES, I LIKE ME!

You were the one making statements about white players and Duke and Redick all in one post. Most of your posts have been plain mean spirited. I haven't seen any that would be considered supportive most are just .......... but considering the source I guess we can't all expect anything better.
Your statements about SVG's coaching record are not correct, but like I said we can't expect you to post anything..........that says it all.

Dwight Howard all over you Dwight Howard!!!!!!!!!!
Way to go Dwight You da man
my first born will be named Dwight
Seriously though- nobody can sleep on Dwight or the Magic anymore. No center or power forward in the game can gaurd him, and if he starts hitting that 20 footer like in game 1 he might end up being among the greatest the game has ever seen!
