Here's the showcased fanpost for this week. With the news coming out of Boston that Leon Powe is out for the season with a torn ACL, the injury list is really piling up for the Celtics. Now, I don't like looking ahead at all but this is a series matchup that I'm keeping an eye on because it's clear that Chicago is going to give Boston everything they got. I don't think it's outlandish to say that the Bulls have a realistic chance to defeat the Celtics.
If Chicago does pull off the upset, then the road to the Eastern Conference Finals gets easier for the Orlando Magic. Or you would think. If Boston hangs on to win the series, the C's pay a price in doing so. It's obvious that some players on the team are both gassed and injured. Either way you slice it, if Orlando does its job and beats Philadelphia in the first round, you have to figure the Magic might be favored in either second round matchup (barring injuries, etc). So, blue-blood poses the following question below. What does the community think?

As much as it sucked to watch our team meltdown at the end of the year I think the present situation with no KG (or a severely limited one) may actually be the best case scenario for the Magic. Here's why . . .
The Magic STRUGGLED MIGHTILY against the Celts at full strength this year but were able to win (even at the Garden) without him.
Having said that I'd like to hear which situation would the 3QCers prefer if they had the choice . . . No KG or home court in the 2nd round?
