Ok... Just a warning that this might end up being a bit of a ramble from me. But here are my thoughts on the Magic in the Playoffs.
Last year, I remember being upset by the LeBron/Kobe puppet Nike commercials. While they were funny, it bothered me that everyone assumed from the very beginning that we were going to have a Lakers vs. Cavs final. And of course, our Magic boys proved everyone wrong and shut the Cavs out.
This year, I feel like when we make it to the finals and when we win the championship, critics will say, "Well, the Magic didn't have the competition in the first two rounds that everyone else did. The Cavs/Celtics were so tired by the time they got to the EC Finals that they just didn't have the energy. It wasn't a fair matchup. LeBron's elbow, blah blah blah."
I'm going to say what I said last year... I feel that the Magic have the HEART that no other team does.
