Kobe Bryant, for all his competitive fury, is not bold (re: stupid) enough to predict an impending for the Los Angeles Lakers. But Dwight Howard -- who was once quoted as saying "Aw man, don't do it to me...NO, AW MAN...AAAHHHHHHHHH!!" -- believes his Orlando Magic are right there. Aw man!!
"I think our team has the chance to go all the way. We got all the tools. I think this year we can go all the way."Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? No, really. What?!
"All the way to the championship."Did I miss something? Did David Stern move the Magic to the NBA Developmental League? Maybe Dwight stopped by Amsterdam on his way back from the FIBA World Championships. I don't know. But even without looking, I'm pretty sure no team has gone from 36-46 to an NBA title, especially without adding a Shaq or Wilt or something. Good luck with that, Dwight. I only hope the Earth doesn't explode off its axis due to the gravitational displacement caused by your rapidly expanding cajones.
