I am a very realistic Magic fan however I do think that this will be a sweep. ESP.com is saying Magic in 5. They also underestimate this team every chance they get.

Rafer is going to step up and help to lead this team. Watch.

Yea, Dwight and Rafer should be the leaders. Turk and Lewis are the vets who should be consistent. PG and C leaders, just like it was with Nelson. Rafer needs to push the ball and really kick into his "PG senses" to make some incredible passes. He also should drive penetrate alot like Nelson did. Then to be smart to know whether to finish or pass to whom. Oh, defense is very important too. Alston is cited for possible 2nd All-Defense Team, so he needs to show it. But this is the ONLY player on the whole team that I'd actually put a greater emphasis on his offense. He's got to really run it like he knows he's going to get 10+ APG. Nelson is going to be soo missed for his highly accurate and clutch shooting, but Alston can run it just as well as Nelson did or even better, and Lewis, Turk, and the others can take care of that scoring.
