Orlando Magic-Cleveland Cavaliers: 10 Messages for LBJ and Gang

YvetteAnalyst IMay 21, 2009

Just a few notes for the Cavaliers from a Lakers fan who witnessed the intensity of what a passionate team is capable of accomplishing.

Hypocritical as it may sound, I’d like to venture into tonight’s Orlando Magic-Cleveland Cavaliers matchup to point out a few things.

The final score, 107-106, ending in a Magic victory, is not as important as the message delivered to the Cavaliers this evening.

Just a few notes for the Cavaliers to mull over:

1) Memo to LeBron James: you can be stopped, you can be defended, and you can be beat.

2) An 8-0 record means nothing if you lose the series to the underdog.

3) You’ll need more than King James if you want to be crowned victorious.

4) In your first real challenge of this postseason, you failed. No, we don’t care that you had an 8-0 record. No, we don’t care that you can play better. No, we don’t care that you have the league’s MVP on your side. No, we don’t care the margin of victory was one.

5) The Magic have passion too. We just don’t need the clapping “poof” powder to get us going (visualize LBJ).

6) What goes up, must come down. That means you, Cavs.

7) We don’t care that you only lost two games at home during the regular season. We only care you lost this one.

8) From Dwight Howard: Did you see what I did to that clock? I’ll do it to your team, too.

9) We’re hungry. We just beat the defending champions. Do you still doubt us?

10) If you didn’t believe in Magic, start. We can make you disappear.

You’ve been warned, Cavaliers. Don’t you dare take us for granted.
