A Rivalry to Be, or Not to Be: That Is the Question

Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images There is no rivalry between the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat. There is no rich history between the two franchises. Celtics vs. Lakers it is not. History? Boston and L.A. have decades of it. Geography? They are the East vs. West. Bad blood? Five words: Kevin McHale clotheslines Kurt …

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade all pooling their talents is unseemly or just unfair … unless they do it in your town, of course.
