Congrats on a hell of a season, way to stay classy and keep your heads up cuz Dwight is only 23 and he's only gonna improve.

It's hard not to keep your head up when no one expected us to make the Finals this year, including the vast majority of Magic fans. We have a lot of youth, an injured PG, and a star that isn't there yet offensively. Howard's offensive game is going to be what either holds us back, or eventually gets us over the hump. It's up to him. Saw flashes of it vs. Cleveland (thank you Illgauskas), but besides that, he disappointed me. Hopefully he works very hard this off-season now that he knows how good he can be, but isn't yet. We'll be back.

They get some props from me. They are a great team and have a great future. Dwight is only going to get better. I have lots of respect for this team.

They played tough all playoffs long, but it helped that KG wasn't there. Regardless, if Dwight ever figures out offense and FTs, they'll be a LOT better.

Dwight Howard is going to come back from this offseason tougher, angrier, and probably bigger.



and that's SCARY.

I'd rather he came back and looked more like Gasol than bigger and tougher. He needs to touch, finesse, skill and grace more than anything else. He's big enough, tough enough...maybe not angry enough. He just needs to get skilled enough...offensively.

It might be good for Orlando that they choked so bad. They might come back with a chip on their should next year.

The Magic are a very respectable team...SVG too. Of course they deserve more credit than they got from the media.

I loved the fight in this team, but hope that they'll take the lessons of this series and improve next year. They have a shot to be in the hunt every year, if they improve.

Congrats Magic. I look forward to seeing Dwight in the Finals again. Hopefully a Bynum v. Dwight rivalry will spark.

I actually want to see Dwight vs Shaq

Shaq is 38 years old. How can they start a rivalry?

Bynum is 21. Dwight is 23. They can be rivals for the next decade.

....always...

I meant in a finals, yea i know Shaq is almost done but he talked alot of crap about dwight. I would love to see them both in there prime but thats not going to happen.

You gotta fail to succeed. It happened to Jordan, Shaq, Kobe, KG, Wade etc. etc. etc and it's gonna happen with LeBron and Dwight.

The Magic were a Hell of a team and I honestly think that they are a backup big away (Sheed) from being the champions

Give it up for what? For ruining the playoffs by doing exactly what i knew they would? Knocked out the two better east teams with hot 3 point shooting, then get to the finals and shoot like crap? What a fraud the magic are and Howard is nowhere near what Shaq was at the same age. Pathetic losers.

I agree (because Im a LeBron fan)...but at least 3 of the games were close and entertaining...i dont think this team was better than the 1995 Magic; they have a bright future though

He desperately needs to work on his lower body strength. His upper body is already that of a body builder but if can get half the motivation to get a butt so he can push people out then he'll be a beast.

Congrats magic. Great job making the finals really suck. I would rather get a rash on my di** then to watch that crap again.

If it was not for the magic's tall shooters the cavs would have won. Then we would have a real matchup with the cavs and lakers.

The magic classy? dude they stole the cavs intro saying. '' one goal ''. lol, ya thats classy.

Thanks again for killing the finals magic.
