Am i the only Orlando Magic fan that is amazed at THE NERVE of Boston Celtic fans are trying to wrap their arms around us and pat us on the back...all the while asking us to join them in cheering on the Celtics in hopes of toppling the Lakers?!? Are you frigging serious?! I would rather be on the receiveing end of a trademarked Dwight Howard 'Bow to the head.
First of all, you guys are winning hardware (street slang for championship rings) with a coach who we felt was unworthy of coaching on the NBA level (Coach Doc Rivers). Yes, he used to coach the Magic!! Much respect for Coach Rivers, and i was even a fan of his when he played with the Atlanta Hawks with 'Nique, Spud Webb and Co...Coach Rivers turned the Celtics from the laughing stock in the league (5-6 years ago, they had less than 20 wins a season, i believe..Google it!) into a force in the Eastern Conference. Yes, having good players helps, but throwing together good players alone does not equal success in basketball. For an example of this, see the United States Olympic team from years back who lost games to Puerto Rico, Spain, ect...
And if any of you so-called Magic fans agree to now cheer on Boston, then please remove yourself from this post, because you and i know that you're no fan of ours. As far as i'm concerned, the NBA season ended after that Game 6 loss in Boston...point blank. Basketball is done for me until the Magic begin preseason conditioning. See you then.
