Jameer Nelson is my favorite player, but I love Alston's style and passion alot. I think Alston can do it too, he sounds like he's ready to show 90% of the media as total idiots when they fall on their faces with Celtics-Cavs ECF prediction not happening.

Nothing like a little motivation to get you going for the playoffs. Keep talking s h i t media pundits. Only adds fuel to Orlandos fire.

Maybe he should show them why. This team can beat any team on any given day, the problem is you cant count n them! Who can blame the pundits, the team dropped 3 games straight going into the playoffs, they are suspect!

Magic eat tainted Philly CheeseSteak sandwiches and come down with salmonella. This is all caused by Jameer who knows where all the BAD food is served in Philly and he's jealous be cause he cant play and is to short to be in the NBA.
Philly (and Jameer) has this all planned.

Ummm...yeah we know the real reason.....because he calls out Tmac/Yao all the time because they are either too soft and slow or just always injured....You didnt want your stars feelings to get hurt since Rafer is full of passion and wants to WIN.
Yeah we know the real reason....lol.
Please...Bricks??.....Didn't rafer pretty much carry houston while YAO's toe was hurt and Memac started chosing which game he would like to play or sit???

Yeah..I know...Truth's a B!*tch!! lol

Funny stuff! I hope the boys represent this year. I hope the rest helps our money makers. Rashard needs to show everyone he's no slacker. Turk needs to find his rhythm, Rafer needs to show Houston that he can take a team to the top, and Dwight just needs to drop some bows and show Philly who's in charge!!!

Let's not hop off the bandwagon so quick people. The Magic will win the first round. The 2nd round will be a challenge. No KG is huge. Magic in 6. And we know how they treat the Cavs! Do you really think that 3 game skid means anything? My gosh I saw Adonale Foyle playing big minutes in one of those games. When did we get him back? They have beaten the best all year!!!

If you think they way the Magic finished the season is indicative of anything then you are clueless. They were throttling back and resting for the playoffs. If you don't realize that then you aren't familiar with basketball NBA style.
