Look Who Showed Up

Look Who Showed Up

Every now and then you get that wow-this-guy-could-be-really-good performance from Lamar Odom and last night was the night. Give the Lakers credit – they played defense (12 blocked shots, Denver shot 38%) and Kobe (8 assists) passed the ball to guys who made plays (Odom 19 pts, Ariza 12 pts, Fisher 12 pts). Denver may [...]

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

I told ya'll the other day that we find it really disrespectful that everybody seems to be pulling for LeBron and Kobe to get to the Finals. Every time I look at TV, it seems like that's all anybody is talking about. It's like nobody is even giving us a shot at winning this series [...]

Is Dwight Really Dominant?

Is Dwight Really Dominant?

SevenSecondsOrMess does a great job breaking down video.  Today, it's Dwight Howard and his offensive game under the microscope.  Once again, TV analysts seem to accept some misconceptions about Dwight Howard being a dominant player.  Even last night, in a monster game, he didn't score very often on an offensive move.  He dominated the boards.  [...]

“We are going to win this series”

“We are going to win this series”

Getty Images Dwight Howard kissed and made up with SVG yesterday… and then came out with a guarantee "We can't give up hope," Howard said Wednesday. "We're in this series to win it. We are going to win this series." I get why athletes say these things.  And Orlando winning twice wouldn't be the most [...]

The Implosion Is Nearly Complete

The Implosion Is Nearly Complete

  I've said from the beginning of this season… check that… since the beginning of LAST season that the Magic are not built for the playoffs.  I think the world is starting to see why I say that.  Horrible shot selection when it matters most.  Lack of heart.  Suspect coaching moves. And it's that last [...]

The Pass From Pierce

The Pass From Pierce

A lot of talk this morning will be about Big Baby nailing that shot a the buzzer.  And it should be. That was a cool as ice moment and clearly the biggest shot of his life.  But some of that talk should go Paul Pierce's way, too, because I don't know if ANY other star [...]

Attack. Dwight. Howard.

Attack. Dwight. Howard.

Dwight Howard blocked a million shots last night… and once again… always from the help side.  He's just lying in wait.  And he's proved that you can't just loft one high off the board because he can go get that.  In fact, those little floaters are just begging for him to show off his jumping [...]

1 @ 0 Wednesday, May 6, 2009 8:00 pm ET TD BankNorth Garden (Boston, MA) The outcome of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals was a tough one to swallow for Celtics supporters. Nothing went right in the first half, and that had everything to do with the intimidation factor of Dwight Howard. The [...]

I swear I started this post at 7 AM with the intent on finishing it later in the morning and posting it for the lunch time web surfers.  Imagine my dismay at 9:30 when I checked in on Celtics blog with the same headline and the same picture.  Oh well… I'll chalk it up to [...]
