First off I should let you all know that, as you can see, I'm a Rockets fan first. I've watched a little of what I could catch of the Cavs this season and I think I would like to count myself as a fan. ( I think I need to see more games before I can honestly say I'm a fan though)
I'm also a Magic fan. I've been with them since around 1993. Penny Hardaway used to be my favorite player.
Also I'm not here to tell you why Orlando will win or why their better. I think anyone that looks at playoff games like this and sees that each one was basically decided by a posession can see that either team is not clearly better than the other. Having said that I'll give you my questions.
1. If Orlando does win the series who would you guys root for in the Finals? Of course you'd like the Cavs to be there but any true basketball fan will still watch the games and root for one team over the other, as I'm doing now that the Rockets are out of it.
2. If the Cavs pull off the miracle and take the series, which I still believe to be possible, who would you guys rather play? Of course the media wants Kobe/Lebron but I'm not convinced that Cavs/Nuggets wouldn't be a great series either.
3. What do you guys attribute to the Cavs not being able to hold on to built leads in the second half against the Magic? Is it the 3 point shooting? Laziness? Seems like you guys never gave up a lead in the first two rounds and comes off as uncharacteristic of this team.
Thanks for any feedback from you guys and best of luck from here on out. I can't say that I'm rooting for you to win it (unless you make it to the Finals) but I'm definitely not rooting against you.
