The Second Best Player on the Court?
Hedo Turkgolu is really, really good. I thought he was an impressive talent back when he was with the Kings. But because I'm not a fan of Orlando -- or much of anything in Florida, to be honest -- I haven't paid as much attention to the development of his skill set as I should have. The Magic have a lot more firepower than the Cavaliers, though LeBron's greatness has somewhat concealed the disparity. But it's Turkgolu who holds everything together.

The Magic, like the Cavs, are subject to hot and cold spells. Luck has been with them, but it could turn at any time. Turkoglu benefits from the fact that you can't breathe on him without him getting a foul, as well.

You are admirably partisan, as a long-time Cavs loyalist should be. I think LeBron draws fouls pretty easily on his drives into the paint, too, though he looks a lot tougher doing it. I think Ilgauskas is the key. They need to feed him closer to the basket and work the ball inside out more.

Hold on now Charlie! We do have Dwayne Wade so, Florida ain't all THAT bad! If "Z" was a more dominating force inside, the way Shaq is, they would have a better chance to win in my thinking because "Z" could open the floor up more the way it was for Wade when we won the title, although James and Wade are different players.

And Florida has you!

I mean in terms of rooting interest, more than anything.

I totally agree that they need to do more with Ilgauskas. The guy is huge. And he shoots at a high percentage.
