Wow Bynum & Pau? I bet Dwight is very scared of those 2. Dwight will get 20 & 20 against those two soft 7 footers you got. By the way, which 1 of those guys is gonna go out to the perimeter to check Rashard Lewis? His 3 point range must be respected. The Lakers will be the heavy favorites but the Magic have the better team.

I love how all the Kobe fans are all cocky now. LOL.

Phil Jackson is smart enough not to play Bynum and Gasol at the same time. Ariza or Odom will probably be inserted to cover Rashard with Gasol starting at C (Howard should spend most of the game dominating him) with Bynum coming off the bench.

The Lakers definitely match up better with the Magic than the Cavs did with Ariza and Odom able to cover Hedo and Rashard, but they still can't match up with Alston and Howard on defense. At the same time, the Magic have no one to guard Kobe so it should be interesting.

if only nelson was healthy for the playoffs. i think orlando if much better inside, but without nelson, dwight will have to win this one. brooks and billups abused the laker pgs, as nelson did in the regular season. without him i think LA might be able to atleast cover the 3pt shoots of the magic, score more than the cavs could and win it (even if dwight goes nuts). nelson gave them 2 weapons on offense that the lakers had to deal with if they stayed at home against the 3pt shooters. also nelson took advantage of LA's biggest weakness pg play (all around).

hell birdman and scola gave the lakers trouble , and now they get dwight..... he might make this one a real special finals, one where the C is the MVP, like the ghost of kobe's past.

What happened to the Magic playing Reddick during the playoffs? He played a good amount during the beginning of the playoffs and I think he is a very good backup with excellent shooting accuracy.

Redick was filling in for Courtney Lee who got injured against Philly and missed some time against the Celtics. Since Lee's come back, Van Gundy has cut JJ's minutes. He didnt get much PT at all against the Cavs. JJ will probably see more time this series though.
