Here’s another installment of the Magic Basketball Mailbag.
Is this year “THE year” for Orlando to win it all? Won’t one season of gelling and next year’s mid-level exception make Miami unstoppable?
It’s way too early to tell.
There are too many variables involved.
The Miami Heat could be unstoppable as the years go by, but there’s no way to be sure at this point in time. That being said, this year is probably the Magic’s best chance to beat the Heat considering their roster is at its infant stages. Even then, that didn’t stop the Boston Celtics from winning it all in 2008 under similar circumstances. Plus, the Celtics still have to be dealt with in the Eastern Conference. Oh yeah, and then there’s the Los Angeles Lakers.
It’d be a mistake to label Orlando as title favorites because they’re not, but they do have a chance.
For the Magic, that’s all that matters.
