Now all three teams did come up with big wins, but the odds of them winning the series is still remote at best. Out of all three teams, Orlando has the best shot of pulling the upset. Why Orlando? Since the All-Star break, they have been playing very well. We all know how Toronto seems to shrink in the playoffs so I give Orlando the best shot.

It was so bad for the Cavaliers they could only muster nine points in the fourth quarter. Right now the Cavaliers are a real bad basketball team and the future is not looking very good in Cleveland. James scored 25 points but besides that James got no consistent help all night long. Next up for the Cavaliers a home game against Minnesota.

Did it surprise me when Orlando beat these two teams? I will tell you it was a big shock to say the least. Can Orlando keep it up? I really hope so, but I am realistic and I think it was just luck. I hope I am wrong and the Magic continue to play well. Only time will tell if that actually happens.

Dwight Howard is heading back to Orlando for the first time and the welcome he may get could just shock him. Howard eft on bad terms and we have learned that NBA Basketball fans do not take kindly to superstars jumping ship and landing somewhere else. If you do not believe me ask Lebron James how tough it was to play in Cleveland his first time back. Dwight better be prepared for the worst when he steps onto the court in Orlando. Maybe Dwight can talk to his old teammates, but he also burned some bridges there as well.
Howard was quoted in an article saying his teammates were people nobody really wanted. That was probably not the best thing to say in the press even if it was true. Many Orlando Magic players did not take kindly to those words and they will be out for revenge tonight. Even though ony one player will be in uniform I'm sure he is still not happy with Dwight Howard's comments. Howard still has not grown up yet and his comments continue to get him in trouble. It should be an interesting game in Orlando tonight that's for sure.

Mr. Howard has really become a disappoint to the NBA and himself in my opinion. He was at one time one of the most popular NBA players, but he is also losing his fan base. Lebron James was the most hated player at one time, but I'm starting to think Dwight Howard is inching up on that title now. Hopefully, the Orlando Magic will get smart and cut ties with Dwight Howard as soon as possible.

Orlando have been dealing with stories like this most of the season and this is nothing new. Over the last few years stories have trickle out about this rocky relationship. This is probably just another installment in that relationship. I look for Orlando to get bounced from the playoffs quickly and then Stan Van Gundy will be fired. I do not see any way they can bring him back into the fold with all the stories going around.

This season Orlando just has been to inconsistent and you cannot win an NBA Championship that way. With Dwight Howard out for an extended time do not look for the Magic to go very deep in the playoffs. They could be out after Round one and if that happens Stan Van Gundy could be out as well. These next two weeks will be interesting for the Orlando Magic and it will tell us a lot about the players they have on the roster right now.

Everyone now knows that the reason Dwight Howard stayed with the Magic is he was promised input on many different things. I guess the next coach was one of them. Yes, Dwight Howard is a talented basketball player, but that does not mean he should be running the Orlando Magic. It goes to show you when you let players make decisions like this the team struggles. If you do not believe that look at the Orlando Magic the last month of the season. They have been horrible, and the sad part they will get no better.

Here is what Dwight had to say about his teammates:
“It hurts to get out there and you play your hardest and you expect everybody to play the same way, and I’m not calling anybody out by no means because we all have to get better … but if you don’t want to be out there, don’t dress up,” Howard said. “If you don’t want to play, stay home. People work too hard. I want to win a championship. I work too hard every night for anybody to not want to go out there and play hard. …
Now Dwight Howard 28 points and 16 rebounds, but was the only player in double figures in any statistic for the Magic. This is why Dwight Howard wants out of Orlando and it has been this way for a number of years now. He is frustrated and wants to play with guys who want to show up every night. You really cannot blame Dwight Howard anymore for wanting out!

First the Orlando Magic really do not want to trade Dwight Howard, but if they cannot work out some kind of an extension with him they have no choice. In the end, it is a business and you must treat it as such. Believe me Orlando would rather have Dwight Howard retire as an Orlando Magic then trade him somewhere. If the Magic do trade him you will be assured they will get as much as possible for their superstar. In the end, the Orlando Magic are a loser in all this trade talk.
Fans love Dwight Howard in Orlando and his creditability will take a big hit when he leaves Orlando. Just like Lebron James besides being hated in Orlando he will be hated in other venues as well. Howard better be ready for the backlash that will come from more than just Orlando Magic fans.
The NBA is another loser in this whole scenario as well. Once Dwight Howard is traded he will go to another big market team and the Orlando Magic will not be as good as they once were. The NBA wants more of a level playing field, but when Dwight Howard gets traded the NBA realizes one of the big markets will get even richer. This does not help the NBA and they know it.
In the end, there are no real winners in a Dwight Howard trade. The NBA, Orlando Magic, and fans lose out. Sure Dwight Howard will be paid millions, but as Lebron James found out being a bad guy is not always the way you want to go.

The main reason no trade was done was Orlando wanted a lot and no team had enough to make a trade go. Any team that wanted Howard would needed other trading partners to jump in to make it work. I just do not see other NBA teams help another one get Howard. For now he will be an Orlando Magic and it will be interesting in the coming months to see how this all plays out in the end.
Orlando did trade for Glen "Big Baby" Davis from the Boston Celtics in exchange for Brandon Bass. I think Glenn Davis is going to do well in Orlando and will play a big role in what the Magic will do this season. If Orlando does trade Dwight Howard look for Davis to have an even bigger role in the team.
The 2011-12 edition of the Orlando Magic is still evolving and could for some time. Gauging what kind of team or season Orlando will have is tough, but with or without Howard they will still be a decent team. Magic fans would like to keep Howard, but that may not be in the cards no matter how much they hope for that.
The Orlando Magic should be done with him and get as much as they can. All this drama is doing is making it tougher to have a good season for the Magic. Getting him moved will let the Magic start getting people in here who can help the team and does not have another agenda. Howard first game is coming up and I look for Howard a fan favorite to get booed pretty good.
You would think that Dwight Howard would have learned something through the whole James fiasco, but he has not. Now the Orlando fans will have their chance to show their displeasure with him shortly. I think Howard could be surprised by the rough treatment the fans give him. He really only can blame one person for it himself.

First I have watched a number of your games and there has been times you have not given 110 percent. You may think you have, but the tape does not lie. I am sure you try hard, but no player can say they give there all on every play it just does not happen. I will agree with you the crowds should be louder, but that won't happen unless they want to do it.
People in the stands pay for their tickets and have the right to cheer, boo, or just sit and do nothing. That is their right when they plunk down their money for the ticket. Getting Amway as loud as possible would be nice, but the chances it happens night after night is really just a pipe dream. Mr. Howard be happy with the fans that yell and scream as getting them all to do just isn't happening.
