If I were betting moolaH i'd say the Lake Show, but my gut is sayN pick OrLandO!!! Rashard is a tough matchup, but Pau lays down the law! It's even on most levels, so it comes down to which supastar has the best Series!!!!! Superman Vs. Kobe!!! Get ready!!!!!!!

The match-ups in this series are pretty interesting. I'm excited to see the front court match-ups. Hedo and Ariza/Odom seem to match-up fairly evenly. But the match-up of Dwight and Bynum and Gasol and Shard should be good. Will Bynum get destroyed by Dwight? Can Pau keep up with Shard? Can Shard handle Pau in the post? A lot of people are taking the Lakers to win in 6 or fewer but I don't think it's going to be that easy. When you have a team like the Magic that can score in bunches, and do it quickly, no lead is safe. Should be a very good series.

I think it would be good if the Lakers avoided doubling Dwight. Orlando's too dangerous of a team to just have their shooters open. This should be a tough series for the Lakers, but I see it ending in 6 or fewer. The Lakers are too hungry, have the experience and have the go-to closer in Kobe to take it in the home stretch. Pau will also provide problems for Shard in the post, also.

Yeah, helluva formula the Magic have. They DARE you to double-team Dwight
It's crazy: every last ONE of them cats can shoot the three:
Rashard can bust
Hedo can bust
Nobody told Lee he was a rookie....HE can bust
Skip can pop one every now and then
A VERY under-rated Pietrus will fuck you up if you don't pay attention.
Jamir MAY be back and you KNOW HE'LL pop one in yo mouth.

When the Magic say "team", they mean team. The Lakers don't have enough good defenders to go around, simply put.
Magic in 5.

and the question isn't whether Lewis can handle Gasol in the post....
It's what's Gasol gonna do if he has to come out on Lewis...or Hedo....Get took to the hole where a soft ass Bynum will be waiting to get yanged on.

The Lakers will try to counter all that by sticking to the shooters and letting Dwight do his thing w/o doubling him. Pau can stick with his man on the perimeter. The matchup problem for the Magic is Lamar. And if Jameer comes back, dude will be far from game shape and could possibly be more of a hinderance to the team and its chemistry. The Magic are effective shooters on the perimeter, but they're still a team relying on their jump shooting to bail Dwight out. The long rebounds from the missed shots the Magic create will play well into the Lakers starting fast breaks, which they're known to do much damage from. Besides Dwight, the Magic aren't all that physical of a team. The series will end quickly in LA's favor.

I see this going 7 and i'm gonna lean towards the Lakers as a fan, but I wouldn't be shocked in the least if Orlando pulled it out, they've closed out Boston in Boston and beat the Cavs at home, the whole home court advantage theory is bunk

no sir, we dont got this, we still need to win Game 2, letting them tie the series, then have 3 home games in a row, especially for a so clearly nervous team would not be good for us at all

Wow the lakers are showing the magic they are for real right now. Bryant did his normal thing but Odom and Gasol both stepped up big specially near the end of the game

I must say Lewis played hell of a game but in the playoffs its never a one mans game....

Just like I said, Kobe is having a MUCH better series so far than Superman that's why the Lakers are winning. The Laker bigs are not letting Howard get anything off in the paint, but the scary thing about Howard is he said recently that he knows he's not a good player yet :o and is only about 20% as good as he's going to be... so the Magic may lose this year, but Howard WILL get multiple rings before his careers over... count on that.

yeah right now, he relies on his quickness, strength and athleticism...but once he learns good footwork and a great back to the basket game, then watch out

well they pulled it out in game 3 the magic shot great throughout the game

Howard will win championchips no doubt in my mind, he also needs to work on his free throws damn does this sound similiar to anyone?

He'll end up being a much better FT shooter than Shaq when it's all said and done.

Damn... Magic gave away another one. DFish is a dream shatterer. I'll NEVER forget what he did to my boys with 0.4 on the clock in 04, that bastard!!! I got mad respect for the guy though for real.
