Orlando Magic vs. Philadelphia 76’ers 1st Round NBA Playoff Preview

Posted in Blogroll on April 19th, 2009 by Michael Tillery

I actually was going to pick the Sixers here because of how they limped into the playoffs. 1-6 the last seven might give one the impression the Sixers are gonna get blown out, but dude, they’re playing Orlando. Orlando is not an elite team in this league…yet. If they punch the Sixers in the mouth and then defeat the winner of Bos/Chi with the same precision, then I’ll be down. I’m expecting gigantic things out of Dwight Howard. it’s time for him to put up or shut up. If he really wanted the MVP this year, he could have won it. Crazy you ask? Not so much. Where is his true competition? Who is his peer? Yao? Yo…say no to drugs please. There is no one in the league who can stop Dwight Howard when he truly wants to get it done. He needs to work on his post game, a little baby jumper and get a little meaner before I believe him to be one of the best. I think playing for a soft team (they rely on way too many jumpers) might have something to do with it. The Sixers will look to create turnovers and get out on the break. We’ll see what happens in the half court. Click on the flick for the preview on SLAM. Enjoy what’s left of the weekend. Thanks for the pic Webster. Be Peace.

His personality is not typical. I know some of you thought he would have been better off in Miami, but trust he’s good in Chicago. Dude went off! Read more »
