Redick S*cks

Show up in GM3 OR ELSE

So let's see. Magic up by 2 in OT. Reddick misses a three, which results in LA scoring. Then, next play, Reddick passes the ball to.... LA! Result: LA up by 3. Thanks a lot, JJ...

A fluke team that's showing they don't deserve to be on this stage. Congrats, Orlando fans. Your team will be the answer to this trivia question: "Which is the Worst Finals team in NBA history?" LMAO!! F'n LOSERS!

Well, the Orlando fans were right; Orlando would definitely shoot better in game 2. Actually, it would have been harder to shoot any worse. So, they were better. Still lost, though.

Heartbreaking!! Tough tough loss. Rashard and Hedo showed up so that's good. Not sure why it takes the magic - at times a few quarters to get going.

Time to show JJ Redick the door. Sat the entire Cavs series, and is supposed to be the hero in the NBA Finals? Bad idea, Stan.

Big ole boner-biter there.

That's what happens when you don't plat a whole lot. When you get in especially in the playoffs you freeze.
This was a game we had to have and when the time came to perform we couldn't close the deal. Good game though.

Come on Magic you can beat this team.

Unfortunately, this will be a sweep for LA. Maybe force Otis to do something with Reddick and Hedo in the off season. He has made some pretty good decisions so might be interesting. Good season Magic, but the fat lady in singing.

Wow, is all I have to say. The Lebron love-fest carries over into this series. I swear, the Magic are playing 5 on 8. How many times did Ariza slap the crap out Hedo and Rashard? And Fisher with all his flopping? And the supposed foul on Kobe that Dwight happened to block so cleanly? The Lakers are scared and they want no part of the Magic in an evenly called game. Gasol is a big flopping bitch and hopefully the Magic can push through this garbage and even it up at home. The Lakers will not win a game in Orlando! Magic in 7!!

the officiating is still horrible-in fact worse in this series. the announcers said "that wasnt a foul" at least 6 times in the 3rd and 4th quarter all going against the magic. so sick of hearing how this league isnt fixed when the proof is right in front of everyone to see-im done with the nba.

Better luck next year Orlando. Now you need 4 out of 5 and that's just not gonna happen.

You LA fans just stole one so I wouldn't be talking so much. It was either teams game. LA just got the breaks at the end and converted. Both teams are good and should be there.
You guys amaze me. What did you say last year? Boston got lucky.

Give me a break. Gloat if you want just do it on the LA blogs.

Anyone care to take a guess as to by how many points the refs altered the game with their lopsided officiating?

How many times did Dwight get fouled down low with no call? 10? 15?

How many times did the Lakers benefit from phantom foul calls on the Magic which coincidentally awarded the Lakers much-needed extra points?

Seriously, anyone care to guess the number of points this game was altered by?
