Am i the only one that thinks orlando got better this year and will be back in the finals? The shaq trade hurt cleveland he will be in lebrons way the alot and he's just as bad on pick and roll as big z. Carter is much better than tunk and he will post up clevelands small guards how turk should have. Bass also brings some toughness to the lineup. I liked all of their moves and they seem to just have clevelands number on speed dail. They will have their hands full with boston but I think thats the only team in the east they need to worry about. They wont win the ship but with the moves they made dont be surprised to see them back. Nobody in the east has somebody to match up with Rashard and all those shooters that was the problem last year and now they have vince who can create for himself and others they might just surprise everybody and win the whole thing.
i love what orlando did this off-season. Bass, Carter, Andersen, and Barnes will all help. Plus they get Jameer back to full health and Pietrus should only get better. Dwight will be motivated after a poor finals performance. I have them 3rd in the league right now behind the lakers and boston, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Magic got back to the finals over boston. It's almost a toss up for me between those two teams. Cleavland did make some changes that should help them against Orlando. Shaq won't get bullied by Dwight and Moon is the perfect answer for gaurding Lewis, something they couldn't do last year. But I still have cleavland third in the east.
I have them behind boston also but wouldn't be surprised if they beat boston. I do think they will beat cleveland easy again tho
Yap and if JJ Redick can produce at all this year thatd be a huge boost and i think he played pretty good D in the playoffs he jus needs his J back
