Unlike Lebron, Howard and the Magic continue to fight

Dwight Howard is setting the tone

Dwight Howard is setting the tone

You gotta give the Orlando Magic credit. Unlike Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who showed no heart against Boston when the series was tied at two games apiece, the Magic continue to fight even after being down 0-3. Orlando is still a dangerous team that is now looking good to push the series to a game seven. Especially if Perkins is suspended for game 6 after receiving his 7th technical of the playoffs and with Baby Davis recovering from a concussion. Is it the “master of panic” Stan Van Gundy who is pushing all the right buttons or just the fact the Magic didn’t want to go out with their tails between their legs? Either way it’s an impressive showing and one Lebron hopefully is paying attention to. Lebron can fool himself into believing the Celtics were just a better team than they were, but the fact of the matter is that Lebron gave up on that series and showed no thumbheart or leadership when the team needed him most. Unlike Dwight Howard who is battling to the end, Lebron looked like a guy who had one half of his mind on free agency and the other on a sunny vacation destination. I just hope he’s able to receive TNT or ESPN wherever he is so that he can see for himself how a team and especially a leader is to play when fighting for it’s first championship. -DM
