Otis Smith and the Average Fan

I recently saw the results for the GM poll (with 28 of the 30 GM's polling, and I believe that the Clippers currently do not have an official GM) and noticed that not one GM picked the Orlando Magic to win the championship. No surprise there, I thought. Until I realized, again, that this was a GM poll. Otis Smith probably voted in this (unless he is the one other exclusion) and if that is the case did not vote for the Magic to win the championship. Granted, this poll is not a be-all-end-all, but can it be said that it refelects the "actuality" of the situation versus the "inspiration" of it? In other words, does Smith WANT us to win the championship (who doesn't?) but THINKS that Miami/Boston/Los Angeles (the only three teams to poll) will win?

Then I wondered about us- the Magic fans. Do we WANT the Magic to win, but realize deep down the Magic WONT? I wanted to get the general atmosphere of fellow fans.
