I am not sure if you guys noticed the trade deadline yesterday, but apparently Boston no longer views you, the Orlando Magic 2 time Eastern Conference Finals finalist, 1 time Eastern Conference champs, as a threat to them. They seem to think they will get the number one seed and eliminate you guys in the second round should you get there. They think Old Superman can defend Real Superman. They do not view you guys playing on the perimeter as real championship material. They are are also attempting to mimic your style from 08-09. Stretch four and now they are trying to play KG at center.
If you guys say you are tired of being underrated, overlooked, discarded then now, starting today against the new darlings of the NBA, Oklahoma City Thunder, is the time play with anger and passion. Tonight is the night to go out and drub a team. If everyone says it takes a sacrifice, then please play like it. Orlando seems to be on DEFCon level 1 right now. Everyone is tense. I am not sure if some guys were nervous about the deadline and if they would get traded. Maybe you guys took the Kings too litely. I am not sure, but today is a new day. ESPN, bright lights, pressure on everyone, this what the Magic live for. Philly series, down 2-1 three straight win. Boston series, down 3-2 and facing elimination at home and then facing a daunting task of going to the Real Garden and closing the Celtics out in a game 7. Magic pass with flying colors. Down big game 1 of the 09 ECF. Magic come out on top. Game 6 of those ECF, Magic put the clamps and close them out.
So in conclusion, yes we, Orlando Fans, believe in you guys. We have seen you guys play elite basketball. Physically seen it with our eyes. We know what you are capable of. You guys know what you are capable of. Time to go to work.
