I have to admit, I haven't followed the Magic and Howard much this year.
But Howard is a tremendous player.

It's all about matchups here, Boston took the Magic to 7 games without their best player, Garnett. But Cleveland was much better than Boston without Garnett.

Should be a really good series.  :cool:

NBA Finals. Played in Los Angeles, California to start because of better season record by the Lakers.

The format for the finals is 2-3-2. So 2 at home for the Lakers and then 3 In Orlando...

June 4 is a Thursday for those without a calender.  :)~

I really thought the Cavs would win game 6 and send it to 7.  That sux!

The Cavs should trade for Dirk Nowitiski. They would compliment each other. He is a more athletic version of Big Z and unlike Z, he can make his jumpers.
I lost the will to live mid way through the first set!

Z-unit is the best outside shooting big man that I can think of?  Isn't he over 7 ft. tall?  Who at 7 ft. tall has/had a better outside shot?

Dirk is an obvious one.  How tall is he?   I'd like to see stats on big men to prove what we are talking.

Are you testing me because I'm a female :)~ :mad1:

Anywho...most players add 2-3 inches to their height.
Dirk is 6'10
Kevin 6'9
But they are billed as 7 footers like Alonzo and Ewing were back in the 90's

No, I am not testing you, I just honestly would like to see FG% stats on some of the good outside shooter big men.  Dirk and Kevin are obviously both solid but their not big awkward goofs like Z-unit is.

Dirk is not 6'10 - he's 7 ft.  and WE are NOT interested in trading him to anyone! :)~

I like the Mavs but itís Mark Cuban is the reason I donít root for them.  He called Kenyon Martin a "PUNK" after a bitter loss in the playoff.   He did apologize but I donít think he sincere.

If you played for Cuban, you'd love him.  His players love playing for him because he does the best for them and will do anything for them.  So on the 'outside' a lot of folks don't like him, but he brought a winning team to Dallas and has done a lot of innovative things for not only the players but the fans too.  So he's actually loved down in these parts.
