Dwight has grown a lot this year. His game has grown and himself as a person. This is the first season where I look at Dwight and actually see a man and not a kid anymore. He doesn't look like a kid and it seems like he smiles a lot less than he used to. Next year is going to be a hell of a season. (if there is one)
Let me contribute a thought.....first time for everything.
It's completely EMBARRASSING for the NBA to use local announcers for these playoff games, especially a Game 6. Just embarrassing. What if there's an amazing game ending play? You have some biased local yokel calling it? REEEEEEEEDiculous.
Well, that was a bit surprising. I didn't think the Hawks would be able to beat the Magic. First upset in these playoffs so far I think. D.Howard probably isn't happy at all, and he might get out of there unless they can land someone big, which isn't going to happen methinks. It was a good series though.
Magic vs Bulls sounds more interesting than Hawks vs Bulls. Regardless, I hope the Hawks vs Bulls have an entertaining series.
The last 10 times a team losing 3-1 won big in game 5 that team then went on to lose game six 9 out of the 10 times. Pretty ominous for Orlando:
