Howard against the Lakers big men will be interesting; I think LA should use Bynum and all 6 of his fouls to keep Gasul out of foul trouble. How does Orlando handle Kobe? I say let Kobe get his and try to contain the rest of the Laker players, it might work in some of the games. The more I think about this series the more I think it will be a good one. My guess Lakers in 7.
Kobe and Gasol will get theirs no matter what. The Magic have no one that can guard Gasol if they put Dwight on Bynum. and if they switch Dwight to Gasol, Bynum would annhilate Shard in the paint.

I think you right. The Magic has to continue to hit threes and hope the Laker roll players take some games off like they did against the Nuggets. Kobe will get his and Gasol will be a problem as will Howard be for the Lakers. I'm guessing Ariza will cover Lewis, with Kobe on Turk? Man I think this will be a good series!

I really want to see how Rashard Lewis is going to handle himself now that Dwight will not be able to move as easily in the post.
If he can move well without the ball I think he may end up being one of those guys who can make the difference

And yes, I realize Kobe and Dwight will dictate the series, I just think that if Rashard can take advantage of the size advantage he'll have and use the open floor it will be a huge asset to the Magic

funny thing on lebron-kobe matchup too

This series should be a real good one.
Kobe is going to really have to man up his troops to beat the Magic.
Can't wait for game 1 on Thursday.

GO LAKES!!!!!

I had no faith in the Magic going into the playoffs because of their reliance on the 3 ball, often times stagnant offense, and lack of mental toughness. But those things have disappeared since the 1st round. Well they still shoot a lot of 3s but they're making them. A month ago i would have said Lakers in 5, but now I think this could go to game 7. can't wait for thursday.

Magic will have trouble with Kobe, he had 41 in the first game and a rare triple double in the second game.
