Ohhhh SVG. You old so and so!
Seriously, how do you not foul Derek Fisher?????
I’ve been saying for a good long while that the Magic simply are a mediocre team who can occasionally go on a great shooting run. Plus SVG is the certified “Master of Panic.”
And it was all proved last night.
Why coaches don’t foul when they’re up 3 is beyond me. Afriad they are going to take a “shot”???!?! Nonsense. The seconds it’s touched across half court. Wrap em. It’s that easy. Let em shoot. Do your job and rebound. That’s how you close games.
What SVG??? You like going toe to toe and LETTING Jameer Nelson give one of the ice cold closers of the game HAVE his 3.
And this is not take away from Derek Fisher. The guy was supposedly too old and busted to be effective. Over the course of the game he just can’t put 35 minutes together any more. All game he couldn’t hit the side of a bus. But in the last two minutes you STAY on him at the three line. He’s a great closer. He’ll hit that last one. Like big shot Rob. Like Ray Allen. Like Reggie Miller. You STAY ON HIM. You don’t give him three feet.
And you FOUL him before it even gets there.
And it helps prove why Orlando should never have been in this finals in the first place.
Just a joke.
I can’t believe I actually like the Lakers better in this series.
Is it possible to not want either team to win? How glorious would that be. Kobe not getting his ring on his own, and the Magic being laughed off the court.
