Cleveland would be the easier matchup but I think we can still beat the Magic. The series will probably go 6 or 7 games perhaps but I'm not terrified about the thought of facing Orlando but at the same time I'm aware that they aren't going to just lie down and not give us a run for our money.

This should be a good series.

Despite the "Lebron vs. Kobe" hype, I don't think the Cavs-Lakers would've made that entertaining a series. The 2 games they played this year were disappointing. The Magic-Laker games I saw (with Nelson playing PG) were exciting.

I was rooting for the Magic beacause:

a) Jameer Nelson isn't playing (he was responsible for their 2 wins vs LA)
b) We'll have home court advantage

I apologize for bringing it so hard in this post, because I know the silent majority of Lakers fans weren't cheering against LeBron just for the sake of cheering against him, I aimed this post at the ones who were. Should be a fun series to watch but I warn you Lakers fans, this Magic team is scary. I have Lakers winning game 1, if you don't win game 1 the fat lady will already be warming up her vocal cords. From game 2 and on I can realistically see the Magic controlling this series. Better close out on the perimeter and no way will the Lakers bigs be able to contain Dwight. Bynum will be in foul trouble the entire series.

Lakers fans better not get too over-confident against these Magics.

This reminded me of when Lakers fans wanted to face HOU rather than POR, and got a little too over-confident, and the next thing you know the Rockets took them to 7 games.

"Be careful what you wish for?"

Lakers fans better have learned from this.

Should be cheering for the Cavs. IF the Magic close this series out, which it looks inevitable, you guys will get what you wished for. Be careful what you wish for.

-Lakers suck at defending the pick n roll, the Magic are great at getting open 3 point shots off a high screen

-Lakers will not have an answer for Dwight Howard

-Lakers bigs will be neutralized by Dwight

The Magic will crush the Lakers if LeBron doesn't pull a historic performance to bring the Cavs back in this one (cavs are down by 15 points in the first half as I type this)


It must hurt to have sand in your vag*na, doesnt it?
