Ok why aren't they getting any recognition? They're 1.5 games behind the cavs and are currently on a 16-3 stretch. Dwight Howard is the defensive player of the year IMO, and Rashard, Hedo and Jameer look great as usual. Anybody see them beat san antonio? They out spurd the spurs (spurd meaning the adjective for spurs). After Atlanta almost beat Boston twice people are talking about them as Cleveland and Boston's biggest threats, but Orlando is 4.5 games ahead of them! This team is really good and yet they unfairly get no recognition.

I agree, but they've been around the same level the past two years. They're not there with Cleveland and Boston, so its hard to think they'll get to that next level with the way they play. they're good no doubt, but they're not on another level like the Cavs and Celtics.

I've only seen them 2/3 times. Wasn't aware of that 16-3 streak.

What I know is that Turkoglu is killing me with constant turnovers in fantasy.

They are a really good team. They have a grea mix up of outside shooters and low-post threats. Jameer Nelson, Hedo, Rashard are all lights out from 3 point land.

Wow... It's very rare that fans say this kind of stuff. Lakers' fans have a lot to learn from you.

Well, they did beat San Antonio, but S.A. didn't get into Orlando until about 3:AM, and N.O. wore them down for Orlando to beat them......Back to backs make teams exhausted....It's not an excuse, it's just reality.

Because they didn't provide any scare in any team in the playoffs last year despite them having the same team this year.

4th best team IMO

Theyve had an easy schedule thus far, thats probably why people have yet to take them as a legit threat yet, but winning vs San Antone was a step in that direction.

They have offense,and are a good team.. but for them to be a true contender, they will need to step up their defense IMO. If we would have made all the open shots we had last night, this thread wouldnt have been made.

You say that like your WONDERFUL laker pals are silent and sweet. Every teams fans will talk ****. But it hear i mostly from the laker fans. Hell im most active in the NBA forums because of it.


Back on topic

Magic have looked nice this last month but im still waiting to see it happen when it matters. I dont care they've gone 16 and whatever or Hedo is on fire. When playoff time comes call me and we can talk Magic.

they have nobody to take over a game IMO. Rashard and Hedo can hit 3's and thats it. And dwight cleans up inside. And defensively they cannot stop anyone as a team.

Just look at the match up between them and boston

Rondo vs Nelson - I think rondo would run all over jameer.

Allen-Pietrus? - Definitly allen

Pierce-turkoglu- hedo would et some points, but wouldnt stop pierce

KG-Shard - Shard would be able to pull KG outside a little but KG would dominant him inside

Perk-D12 - Obv. howard would kill perk. But as long as boston bigs (perk,powe,davis) muscloe up and foul him when needed. they couldnt CONTAIN him

Interesting. If it were in the news tomorrow that the Celtics traded Rondo for Nelson id be pissed, angry, mad, upset, sad, confused. Nelson cant run a team imo. Hes a score first point guard. At St Joe's he was the main option. Now in the NBA hes hopeless. Magic would be better of with Rondo getting the TEAM involved.

They're a regular season team with regular season players. No defense at all. No reliable scoring options. Their best player for when the game is on the line is Hedo, and he's not going to win you a championship anytime soon.
