After The Bulls And Thunder PlayOffs

I wonder what's the two team doing after the lost? they maybe enjoying their break.. most of them gone for fishing to join Kobe.

Dwight Howard Tells The World That He Wants To Stay in Orlando!!!

Or something like that. This Dwight Howard video from the Memorial Day BBQ is even more enjoyable than the transcript. Just hearing the man's love for Orlando makes a big difference than just reading it. Also, good to hear that Gilbert Arenas apparently lost 15 pounds (No clue from what period). If this is all an act from Dwight, then give that man an Oscar. 

Why It's Not Good To Trust Ping

Well folks, David Pingalore has decided to 'break some news' once again. I do not follow him on Twitter, nor do I care for CBS' WKMG Local 6 News mostly because of him. As far as his Twitter use goes, he's an incompetent tweeter.

I have zero respect for the 'work' he does and his sources are no better than my grandparents in Greece, who are living deep in remote villages, when it comes to Orlando Magic insider rumors. I'm not the only one with this opinion. Ping apparently came down here from Ohio, and they couldn't even stand him.

I despise his unprofessional sports attire. You're not on a beach, you can't wear flip-flops everywhere. Most Orlando Magic fans are aware of his level of 'expertise'. We all know that when it comes to all local news, the sports segments are dying. Some are lucky to get a minute per broadcast now it's been cut that much. So it's no surprise to see the occasional desperate attention grabber for ratings and internet web hits.

He supposedly broke the Orlando Magic's signing of Rashard Lewis when Ping first came here. He also supposedly broke last season's Magic-Suns trade that involved Jason Richardson and Hedo Turkoglu.

That is all false. Anyone with a laptop and an open eye can easily follow other, more credible, sports journalists that reveal all of this information first. Ping is just quick enough to 'report' it and some locals have fed off of that reciprocation of news. Just look back to last year, around NBA Draft time, to see how he brutally failed in his Chris Paul rumors. The man is reckless and jumps the gun on everything, desperate to get it right. I have no idea how he's still employed after that disregard for getting the facts straight.

So now, come to the Dwight Howard situation. Dwight hosted a free BBQ yesterdayto reassure Magic fans of his commitment to this city and franchise. He made a few remarks to reporters but this was fun time for the 25-year-old. There, Dwight expressed even strongly his desire to stay in Orlando. Howard wants to work with Hakeem Olajuwon again this summer as he did last year, something I am glad to hear. He also, for the first time, really wanted to separate himself from Shaq. Josh Robbins wrote the piece:

Responding to speculation that he wants to jump to a bigger market when he can became a free agent next year, superstar center Dwight Howard indicated Monday that his strong preference is to remain with the Orlando Magic for the long term.

"I'm not trying to run behind nobody like Shaq or be behind somebody else," Howard said, referencing Shaquille O'Neal's decision to leave the Magic following the 1995-96 season and sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I want to start my own path and I want people to follow my path and not just follow somebody else's path. I want to have my own path, and I want to start that here in Orlando. But I can't do it alone. Not only do I need the right teammates, but I need the city behind me. That's the only way it's going to get done. We can change this small city that we have — this small market that we have — and we can make it a big market."

Howard made his comments in a one-on-one interview with the Orlando Sentinel during a free barbecue that he held for fans Monday afternoon at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake. Howard came up with the idea for the event around 1 a.m. Monday; one of his goals, he said, was to ease fans' concerns that he might leave the team.

Late Monday night, Ping reports on Twitter that Dwight's been working to get an extension signed with Otis Smith. Since then, today, guys such as Jarrod Rudolphhave denied Ping's allegations. Howard's close-knit posse has also denied it. Then again, that's a standard thing for most athletes. Odds are, this was Ping jumping to conclusions based off some internet rumors and a Memorial Day BBQ. 

The good thing coming out of this is that if Dwight were to sign a 2-year extension, he'd actually be committing himself to Orlando for the next 4 years because his opt out clause would be nulled thanks to this impending lockout. So he wouldn't be a free agent until 2014-2015. It's been said before, this is Howard's best chance to maximize the capital he can make as a player. It's also a risk because he could potentially waste his prime as Kevin Garnett did in Minnesota for staying so long. The other fantastic thing to note, is that Gilbert Arenas was at the BBQ as well.

There's been buzz about him restructuring his contract to lighten the load on Orlando's cap situation. All in all, it's nice to see 'Hibachi' out there interacting with Dwight and the fans. Magic fans should know that we are stuck with Gilbert and that we need to give him all the support possible to have a fantastic 2011-2012 season. There's a good chance he could be our starting point guard, mostly due in part to Jameer Nelson being one of our few assets that we can trade to hopefully improve our roster situation.

Loyalty can be a massive thing to some people, and mean nothing to another. We'd all like to think that Dwight is a loyal guy and that he will stick with a franchise and town that adores him and that will do everything possible to win a championship. Trust is also as important. We all want to believe Arenas will indeed turn his life and playing career around and start showing his value.

Cross your fingers and pray that ONE TIME, JUST ONE TIME, Ping gets it right about Dwight. It would completely change the outlook of this offseason. It would also keep Laker, Net, Mav, and Bull fans away with their mouths zipped.

LAKERS 3Peat is Over

Sad to hear or maybe not too sad that the reigning champ didn't make it to their ambition to have a 3peat. After they got swept by Mavs and left by their all time best coach they're not back to zero and finding their luck next season.

Gay Moments in NBA (Part 1)

Ok most of the photos are taken accidentlly and intentionally but hell its so funny to see those guys showing intimacy. No doubt they're straight no question about it... don't even miss out with them.


Lebron James Haters

Here are some photos I found all over the net, guess what most of them are Cavs Fans that can't move on.


Dallas Mavericks 2011 Western Finals

The Mavs in 2011 Western Finals Series.. the old hogs done it again.. no Big-3 just pure skills and experience .

The Best Sports Birthday Present Ever

So here we go, May 30th, my now 23rd birthday. Unfortunately, the Magic are not around to make it even better. 2009 really was quite a phenomenal run to our second NBA Finals. Ultimate underdogs in the Eastern Conference Finals, the NBA world was stunned to see the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James get destroyed by a superior team. Amway Arena was host to Game 6

Win, and we'd meet the Lakers. Lose, and the Cavs could overcome disappointment being at home for the deciding game. Fortunately, Dwight Howard was godly. 40 points and 14 rebounds, something LeBron couldn't counter. I was at a watch party, but you could feel how intense that Amway Arena crowd's energy was. 

Such a fun 21st birthday in the end. I'd waited 14 years for the franchise to get back to the Finals. Can't wait for when we do it again. 3rd time is the charm.

Chicago Bulls 2011 Eastern Conference Finals

On This Day, May 28th: Some Deep Playoff Losses



Orlando had to look back upon getting swept for the 3rd playoff run in a row. Not only did we get swept out of the Eastern Conference Finals, we got swept in the O-Rena. It was the end of the road for Shaq. Of course, at the time, there were just slight rumors of that possibly happening. Injuries had crushed us, but we all knew Michael Jordan was back for real after he carved us up:

Jordan hit 16-of-23 field goals and 10-of-14 free throws while making good on his promise to deliver the clincher in Game 4.

''I tried not to force the issue,'' said Jordan, league MVP and leader on a Bulls team that won an NBA-record 72 regular-season games. ''I tried to let the game come to me.''

Scottie Pippen and Ron Harper scored 12 points each. Dennis Rodman added nine points and a game-high 14 rebounds, but this Memorial Day and this game belonged to Jordan, who was not 100 percent healthy.

''We were fortunate this afternoon to ride the coattails of Michael Jordan,'' Chicago coach Phil Jackson said. ''We were watching him closely. He did not feel well today. He rolled his ankle the other day (Saturday in Game 3), but Michael has a penchant for coming up with these kind of games under duress.''

Speaking of duress, that would aptly describe the plight of the Magic. They trailed the series, 3-0, and had a virtual Who's Who list of injured players on the bench.

Power forward Horace Grant had been idle since injuring his left elbow in Game 1.

Shaw sat out games 3 and 4 with muscle spasms in his neck. And Anderson, who would have drawn the defensive assignment against Jordan, severely sprained his right wrist in Game 3, keeping him out of Monday's action.

''What can you say about the guy?'' Anderson said of Jordan. ''You're not going to stop him. He's going to get his share of points and share of shots. You just have to play him to your best ability. But he's the baddest dude to ever lace up a pair of shoes.''

Orlando wasn't supposed to be in this position. Up 3-1 over the mighty Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James in the Eastern Conference Finals. So Game 5 in Cleveland was a chance for the Magic to put it away on the road and take the franchise's second trip to the NBA Finals. It was a close game up until the final 2 minutes or so as Dwight Howard had fouled out.

It's quite a boxscore to examine. Hedo Turkoglu, Dwight, and Mickael Pietrus did there thing while Rashard Lewis and Rafer Alston had very forgettable performances. It was a bump in the road though as we knew what would happen for Game 6 back in Orlando.


The Magic had stormed back being down 3-0 to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, having saved off being swept in Boston, then winning a game at Amway Arena (The last game in our old building, so at least it went out on a high note), then trying to pull the improbable and try to win Game 6 in Boston. Dwight had a fairly good game as usual, but after that, not much production from anyone else.

Miami Heat 2011 Eastern Champion

Its huge victory over the Chicago's homecourt as Miami Heat got their glory as the Eastern Champion. Now they made all the haters damn fool and all those bad criticism false, the Big3 is the key for bringing home the trophy. From Bosh, Wade to James with chemistry solution from their good Coach.Spo , its a big success and hoping it will continue against the Mavs.

Congratulations Miami Heat!

For the Bulls hope you'll find the same energy in the next season.

This is the reason for taking the victory from the Chicago's Arena withness thousands of Chicago's fans.


Of Course We Don't Want Miami Winning Another Title

Tuesday May 31st will mark the beginning of the rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals between Dallas and Miami. This will be both teams' second trips to the championship series. As all of us Magic fans know, Miami took the title in 2006 from Dallas thanks to Shaq, Dwyane Wade, and partially because of officiating.

This rematch is all about the revenge of Dirk and how 90% of the world will be praying that good prevails over the evil 'Decision' empire. We Magic fans should be at the head of that Dallas bandwagon. Yes 5 years has drastically changed things, but the same rules apply. Miami is evil.

They have Pat Riley still and even if you may like Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh have replaced Shaq as the hated party. No Orlando resident should be cheering for the Heat. None. I don't care if you have a soft spot for Mike Miller or Juwan Howard. They're not as likable as Antoine Walker and Gary Payton.

Since the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat were created over 20 years ago, there's always been one eye keeping watch of the other. It's been the big community of Miami against the small town of Orlando.

From '92 and on is when Orlando got a death grip on the rivalry with Orlando ultimately reaching the 1995 NBA Finals in just its 6th season of existence (Which is quite remarkable). But we saw our youthful team get swept by the Houston Rockets in what would be their 2nd, and last for now, title as part of their back-to-back run of greatness. Miami had some decent playoff runs under the watch of Pat Riley in the late '90s but really didn't become relevant in basketball until 2004.

Orlando still was viewed as the better franchise even though the Magic had entered the dark days by 2003. In fact, before that, Miami was better known for the DolphinsMarlins, and Panthers football, baseball, and hockey franchises. The Heat franchise was 4th on that professional league list. Almost invisible for the most part. Now with the Big 3 in town, Heat Havoc has hit South Beach once again after the departure of Shaq.

Once the Heat won that first title in 2006, the picture changed and both Florida basketball teams have never been viewed equally again. Miami has the superior NBA reputation as a winning team because of that one trophy. The Magic could have evened things up in 2009, but unfortunately Kobe and the Lakers were too good for us. Now, the Magic are at the start of a tough calendar year or longer period in the franchise's history. Meanwhile, Miami can grab a 2-0 lead in the sunshine state NBA championship battle.

The fate of the basketball world and humanity is in the hands of the Dallas Mavericks. We're approaching a lockout and we know David Stern got the Finals matchup he wanted based on the Conference Finals matchups. I'm not saying the league is fixed, but it definitely got the best ratings duo possible.

If Miami were to win, it gives stars like Dwight Howard and Chris Paul a lot to think about when it comes to loyalty and whether it is better to join one or two superstars in one city. Now, hopefully the new Collective Bargaining Agreement that will be passed in the near future (We wish) will help keep some form of parity throughout the league.

If Dallas wins, it means Dirk's patience of staying with that Mavericks franchise will have paid off and that a medium market like Orlando can stay attractive in comparison to New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles. All I know is Orlando has 2 NBA Finals appearances and no titles to show for it. Miami can go 2-for-2 with this possible 2nd title jump starting a dynasty. It's scary to fathom.
