Orlando's Unexpected Playoff Run

I'm like most sports fans who has been watching the NBA Playoffs and didn't expect for the Magic to end up where they are now. Even though they did get the third seed, respectively, I still didn't think that they were the best team in the Eastern Conference. But I will give them props for playing like a great playoff team. I mean they beat a tough Philadelphia team in six games and ended up beating Boston in game 7. Let's remember that Boston has had the experience in playing in Game sevens, especially at home. I don't care if Garnett (my boy) was not in the lineup at all. Boston still had a good team out on the floor. The team who I wanted to win the whole thing, Cleveland Cavaliers, showed that Lebron couldn't do it all on his own. Orlando simply played better basketball than Cleveland even though most of the games were decided by few or very few points. I still think that the Lakers will win even if they were to go onto a Game 7. I just want to see a good series between these two teams. Even if Orlando was to lose the series in games 4 or 5, they should still feel proud on the accomplishments that they have achieved.
