Shaq to Cleveland, what a trade!

If ever the Cleveland Cavaliers were ever to emphisis the fact that a NBA championship was expected out of them as a NBA franchise, that moment is now. Although the approach seems like more of a passive request to those that may follow the actual statistics and analysit commentation behind the play of NBA teams, then the agreement that Shaquille O’Neal made with the Cleveland Cavaliers was indeed unexpected.

Since the last appearance that he had with the Miami Heat the hunger to attain NBA glory once again still lingers in the mouth of one of the most seasoned bigmen that the NBA may come to know in the of the 7-foot center that last season only averaged 18 points a game to finish the season with the Phoenix Suns.

With the trade of O’Neal to the Cavs, is this indeed an approach by the Cavs to express the fact that the need to bring in that awsomelly explosive shooting guard may be the next move. Beware NBA!!

Keys to a Orlando win Tonight!

As if the momentum is not enough to inspire the Magic to a win tonight, defense will be the considerable factor to bringing the Eastern Conference trophy to Orlando.

The way Rafer Alston played in game 4 against the Cavs the potential and level of play is sure to be expected of him again tonight, althought the Magic bench is already notorious for bringing up the rear as the Orlando style of play just may place them in the finals.

Allowing the three-point play to develop and bringing the paint into the equation as an option of scoring will keep the Magic a scoring threat as the ranked defense of Cavs has began to show signs of weakness.

Indeed Rashard Lewis (with an expectional three pointer in game three) is also expected to put up numbers as well as to maintain an offensive front. the Magic have brought forth an impressive display of transition play in the two last games against the Cavs to keep them depending on a sole effort of Lebron James and possible defensive rebounds to keep them within range of Orlando’s productive scoring tactics.

In theory “king” James should be phased out (so consistant pressure on him should make him stoppable) after being tested game after game with no sort of help from the rest of the Caviliers offense as they have now lost to the magic a number of five times between the play-offs and this current eastern conference finals series, as it is expected that the Magic will close this off and advance into the finals tonight.

Orlando wins with a new tune at Home!

As the Orlando Magic began to prepare to face the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night at home I’m sure a couple of senerios run through the head of the players heads as a historical factor of the Magic style of game play is considered. As the half-time festives transpired and game play continued you could tell the anticipation of entering into the NBA finals was a factor as Alston came out strong with an outstanding opening drive of 13 unexpected personal points in the matter of less than a minute and a half of game play.

No one has ever came out that blazed and expected to play as the now infamouos Nick Anderson once played as a Orlando Magic guard. As an unstoppable force, my lou skipped to a new tune as the Magic guard came ouot with a strong opening to advance the magic to lead the series three games to the cavs one.

Eastern Conference Finals!

Magic V.S Cavs!

What are the Orlando Magic facing as they enter into the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals as contenders against the Cleveland Cavaliers?

As the Cavs stretched the ranking’s to lead the eastern conference as a dominate force, the popularity of Lebron James seems to have taken new height as his reigns supremacy as the leagues MVP and the driving force behind Cleveland’s NBA championship run. In the post-season alone, James averages 32 points per game as the Cavs thrashed past both Atlanta and Detroit to contend as the Eastern Conference top seeded team into the Eastern Conference Finals. Having already lost to the Magic 2 games to 1 during the regular season, the Cavs have to be careful of the defensive front that the Magic have as they face off in the eastern conference finals.

Orlando has a couple of advantages in that they just beat the same team that put the Cavs out last year in the reigning champs of the defeated Boston Celtics. Needless to say that there seems to be some momentum that the Magic have, as the Cavs have set around watching the continuation of the playoffs having defeated rival eastern conference opponents in the first four games. A response as Cleveland advanced past Detroit in first round and the out-come of the semifinal round as Cleveland advanced past Atlanta.

As the magic as a team have progressed, it seems that so have individuals such as Hedo Turkoglu as he single handedly scored 25 point in the game against the Celtics to advance the Magics into the eastern conference finals and history as favorable playoff opponents as a NBA franchise.
