Realization Of The Day: I Think These Guys Hate Each Other

This week has turned into a rather Magic-centric week, thanks in large part to them being tops in the league and yours truly being a fan of them...I'm a transparent mofo. -But in THF's coverage of the Magic, one thing has shone through: There seems to be a burgeoning rivalry developing between the Celtics and the Magic. Their game last night had the feel of a playoff series, and these two teams have done nothing but talk about each other lately.

-You had Doc Rivers saying the Magic were the best team in the league right now.

-You had Stan Van Gundy telling us that no matter what his team did, at the end of the day the Celtics were the champs they had to measure up with.

-You had me talking in the 2nd person like Hubie Brown.

But above all you had this...which was dangled out there January 12th and has largely gone unnoticed:




Thems fightin' words. It's like Larry Bird nonchalantly telling people in an interview that his buddie's nickname should be "Air Kevin McHale"...the meaning is lost on no one. I can only hope someone shows this to Dwight, because it would be fun to see him smash a car in half in rage.


On that delightful mental image, have a fantastic weekend folks!
