Wish I could go a week and a half back in time and take the Magic +800.
They are one circus shot away from sweeping the invincible Cavs. Incredible. They're also 2 bad calls away from being down 3-1, too. So there's that.

^ And one bone spur away from watching the C's and Cavs in the ECF

I'm thoroughly enjoying the gigantic Cleveland steamer the Magic are dropping on the NBA marketing machine. It would be sweet icing on the cake if Denver could add their own shitburger to the pile. I mean seriously, puppets?

Growing up in Daytona, I used to head down to Magic games in the early Shaq years. A business friend of my dad's had courtside seats, so my first real basketball experiences were very Magic-centric. I'm by no means a fan (I think you're a fan of one team and that's it), but I'm certainly happy seeing them do well.

Yes, and the steamer ref had me reeling.

That's cool. I'm with you on the one-team allegiance things, but I do wonder about people who don't have a team in the immediate area. Do they latch onto their parents' teams? Or whatever team is geographically closest? I guess those people end up preferring college ball anyway.

I got to Texas as soon as I could, at which point I became not only a Texan, but an indie hipster and thief.

Obviously I think geography is the chief determinate, but if you're in a city in the middle of everything, I don't know what to tell you. For example, I have no idea who you should be a fan of between the Rays and the Marlins.

My dad was born and raised in Chicago, so it was always Chicago teams when I grew up. Somehow, I became a Cubs fan even though my dad was a White Sox fan.

I grew up on both sides of Wisconsin. The teams to go for there were the Bucks, Brewers, Packers, or the Minnisota Twins, Timberwolves, or Vikings...and the North Stars, but I am not a hockey person. I am still disappointed that the Brewers moved to the NL. I used to go for them and the Cubs. Now, they are the "enemy."

Then I moved to Iowa. The team to go for there was the Hawkeyes. I now hate the Hawkeyes more than any team. They also had the Iowa Cubs. That was cool when the actual Chicago Cubs players were on their rehab assignment.

Now I live in Michigan. What...I'm supposed to be a Lions fan?



Headache, I found another great "taunting" play including your favorite, Mr Oakley.

Tampa's closer, but I'd be hopping on the bandwagon at this point. If I loved baseball as much as I loved basketball, I'd have picked by now, I guess.

I guess Fisher actually making some of his shots tonight should be considered a good thing.

Higher score also tends to favor the Lakers...

Updated: Make that Fisher AND The Machine.

You mean the Sammy D elbow? Don't tell me you're siding with Skip Bayless on that one.

My choice was easy, living 30 minutes from the sports complex in South Philly. Though my mother is a St. Louis fan due to her roots, so it doesn't all run in the family.

I'm personally rooting for the Cavs and the Nuggets.
