LOL HEAT SUCK!!!!! MANY TEAMS HAVE WON A CHAMPIONSHIP LIKE THE HEAT, BUT FACE IT THATS THE ONLY WON THEY WILL GET, MEAN WHILE MAGIC COULD BE A POWER HOUSE FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS AND "MAYBE" GET A COUPLE OF RINGS. BUT HEAT ARE HORRIBLE AND EVEN WITH A HEALTHY TEAM THEY SUCK AND MAGIC WILL DESTROY THEM AGAIN THIS YEAR. D-WAYNE IS JUST LIKE T-MAC WHEN HE PLAYED WITH THE MAGIC. GOOD PLAYER, SHITTTYY TEAM. HEAT SUCK

ummm - not sure why you quoted me. I hate the Tragic just as much as you do - but for much different reasons.
I hate them because of people like you that are so fanatical about something so meaningless as a guy putting a ball through a hole that it justifies these ball-stuffers getting paid millions while our teachers and other public servants have to take up a second job just to get by.
Get a life and get off the balls of the ball-stuffers.
****.
then why the heck are you here! GTFO you bandwagoning piece of crap hater. if it bothers you so much that they make money then dont read their stories retard. dont jump on the bandwagon this year either cause it doesnt need jerkoffs like you on there. i bet the only guy on the team you know is dwight and you try to act like you know everything about them.

You are funny! LOL! Is that you Hardaway? LOL Even if they are a powerhouse (Just as the Mavericks are, just like the Raptors are, just like the Cavs are just like the Hornets are) they will still probably NEVER EVER MAKE OR WIN the NBA Finals! Your team always gets knocked out in the 1st round! What a waste of effort eh? Enjoy the Magic's 3 seconds of fame in the playoffs....before they go home!

Heat rock!

True...The Magic are getting it done now!! I don't see many posts about how they will not make the playoffs or have a loosing season. The Magic are rolling with a key injury

Don't forget the tougher games are coming up now in December, but nonetheless, incredible win and great record so far. Dwight/Lewis/Turk played good like I thought according to match-ups, esp. Dwight. I think against Indi, they will win because they saw how good they are in their bare-escape win last time. No Jameer again though I think, so it could be a tough one again. Im looking for a good game again out of Pietrus this time too, esp. on the defensive end.

Remember Magics fans! Just because your team is "rolling" does not mean you will be good! Right now tons of team are "ROLLING" HORNETS, MAVS, ROCKETS, SUNS, ETC ARE ROLL BUT THEY STILL FAIL!!!!

What happen when you play BOSTON CELTICS? I PREDICT YOU LOSE BY 25+ POINTS! final scores:

BOSTON-102, ORLANDO-77 ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!! magics Suck go heat!

go ahead win 50+ games so your team get PWND in the first round! waste of efforts!

It is a fact folks that the Magic will in fact lose to the Boston Celtics on Monday night. That one will not even be close. I am sure all of you will agree with this assessment. Even the most optimistic of fans will agree that the Magic have no chance of winning in Boston.

In fact if the Magic win in Boston this Monday night I promise to stop making predictions in here for the rest of the season. You may cut and paste accordingly here for future reference.

JIM, I beleive you said something like that last year....and then....HEDO happened.!!!
YOu just never know man...You just never know which MAGIC team will show up. MAGIC always usually shows up against contenders. I say this again....If MAGIC shoots 48%+FG....Any team is in trouble.

This one's pretty obvious, but if you don't care (to quote, you 'HATE' the Magic) why A) Read a Magic article and B) Bother to comment- TWICE?
Fair point about teaches etc being underpaid, but why weigh in on a topic you have no interest in? even if you managed to get salary caps reduced and NBA players paid less, it does not put more money in teachers pockets, so let them earn their Millions ****.
You assume I read the article. I didn't.
I didn't even comment on the article.

I just wanted the opportunity to voice my distaste for the Tragic and what better place than in a forum where they're discussing the Tragic? Then some moronic basketball fanatic attacked me as if I were actually a Tragic fan.

Good point about the salaries correlation though.

It's just a sad, sad commentary on our society.

Actually, the only player on I know on the team IS Dwight Howard and the only thing I know about Dwight Howard is that he's got a baby.

And since everyone apparently cares about my opinion - I've got 3 words for Dwight:

You blew It!

You are running out of excuses. That one is by far the worst I have seen.

This does not count as a blown prediction for me folks. And I have a legitimate excuse this time. I had no idea that Gilbert Arenas was sitting this one out tonight. Therefore that wipes the slate clean.

To all REAL magic fans! To the fans who have been fans through thick and thin. To the fans who watched the magic when they were a laughing stock. To the fans who ALWAYS think the magic can win every game, and get sad and it ruins their day when they lose. Remember, BIG men win championships. Its always been that way and it will always be that way, the only exception way Jordan, who is a once in a lifetime player. We have Dwight now and we WILL be good for a very long time, and he seems loyal to the magic and the magic seem loyal to him, he might be one of those few players who stay his whole career with a team. So, lets ignore idiots like Jim who was NEVER a fan, and idiots who think the HEAT are the best team lol, give me a break. Lets ignore these morons and only respond to REAL fans posts. Lets just pretend their responses are not even there, dont even respon to it. Loyal magic fans unite baby! Go magic, I see a championship coming soon, maybe not this year, but soon baby, and the bandwaggoners will say they were always fans, but remember, they lie, we're the real fans. GOD BLESS THE MAGIC BABY~ 12-4 keep them wins coming ****.

Thanks Jim! You try hard to help the Magic by picking against them and I get you even though many dont. Whatever works man, Boston is a tough but douable matchup for the Magic and they have a chance against anyone in the league.

I wish we wouldnt have traded Ariza, man he is an impact player. That was one of Otis bad moves. He has made some good and bad decisions. That was a bad one for sure.

YUP! I see you watched the Laker game tonight too...WOW I KNEW when Otis traded Ariza away it was a BAAAD move. But I loved it when they got him from the knicks (my 2nd team) so I knew alittle about him. If we (MAGIC) had him now we would be contending for a title!!! He could have been the missing piece!!
