We can thank Clifford Ray for Dwight Howard

We can thank Clifford Ray for Dwight Howard

Photo from reader Jesse Haley's parade photos on Flickr Clifford Ray and Robert Parish run a big man camp every year… and one of Cliff's former pupils is Dwight Howard.  With Dwight now in the spotlight and about to lead his team to a sweep of the Lakers (hey, I can dream), Cliff has reason [...]

Welcome to “Pat’s Army”

Welcome to “Pat’s Army”

There have been a lot of suggestions about what to call ourselves in our continued war against anything "Lakers."  I appreciate all of them, but I'm going to go a different route.  I'm sticking with the theme of naming the site after a key historical figure.  And who's more key to Orlando's history than Pat [...]

No Confidence in the Magic

No Confidence in the Magic

  While I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Orlando Magic manhandle the Cavaliers, deep down, minus all the talk about x's and o's, I doubt their ability to beat the Lakers on the biggest stage in basketball. You can't underestimate just how bad Kobe Bryant wants to redeem himself after last year's embarrassing performance. As for [...]

Top of my free agent list: Marcin Gortat

Top of my free agent list:  Marcin Gortat

It's time to be real here.  Kevin Garnett has a lot of miles on his legs.  He's not fragile, but after a while, things start to break down.  And we're getting to a point where a stiff breeze can hurt Kendrick Perkins' shoulder.  We need a solid big man who can come in, bang, rebound [...]

Nike’s gonna need new puppets

Nike’s gonna need new puppets

A funny thing happened on the way to Kobe vs. LeBron in the finals. The Orlando Magic figured out how to play good basketball.  Actually, they figured it out during the Celtics series when they stopped just bombing from 3 and got aggressive.  Now, Orlando is one win away from eliminating the Cavs, and giving [...]

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 [...]

The Cavs Take Another Beating

The Cavs Take Another Beating

“They create so many matchup problems for us,” Mo Williams said. “I know it. They know it. Everybody knows it.” Dare I say it, but is this series is over? This one reminds me of last year's finals. One team simply cannot stop the other. Mo Williams is pulling out his best Ray Allen impression [...]

They don’t teach this stuff in journalism school

They don’t teach this stuff in journalism school

That’s Cleveland’s Newschannel 5 team at the tail end of their news cast the other night… just as the Cavs won the game.  I’m impressed at the way they kept their composure.  Too bad anyone who cared about the game was actually watching the game. (Via Ball Don’t Lie) [...]

Offseason Questions: Gabe Pruitt

Offseason Questions:  Gabe Pruitt

The Celtics have turned to Sam Cassell and Stephon Marbury to back up Rajon Rondo during the Big 3 era.  Meanwile, Gabe Pruitt has pretty much just hung out on the bench.  He did have a stretch through January and February where he got some playing time… and his best game of the season was [...]

KG would have played

KG would have played

If the Celtics had beaten Orlando, KG would have played in the Cleveland series.  At least, Gary Tanguay says so. "I was told that he was going to play in the Cleveland series, if they got that far. That was an opinion I was told." I have no reason to doubt Tanguay… but the obvious [...]
