Orlando is now 0-1 in this latest series with the Boston Celtics. That qualifies them as the worst team in the history of the NBA. The Nets had a winning percentage of .146 this season. The Philadelphia 76ers of 1972-73 featured a winning percentage of .110. Both are better than the Magic's .000 in this series.
Dwight Howard was ineffective offensively. He shot poorly. He played like a player who was ineffective offensively and shot poorly. If John Wilkes Booth and Dwight Howard switched places, Abraham Lincoln might still be alive today.
The Magic's style of play is terrible and their coach sucks. They'll never win another game again playing this way. They need to switch things up and fire the coach.
But let's not take any credit away from the Boston Celtics, the greatest team in the history of sports. Not only do they have a 4 game winning streak, the longest such streak ever attained in the NBA, but they are filled with a team of twelve future Hall of Famers. And while we're on the subject, why isn't their coach in the Hall of Fame yet? They should have a special ceremony just for him after that game. Rondo plays like Jesus, only better.
And the Celtics won on the road. Incredible! The team that wins Game 1 goes on to win the series about 3/4th of the time. Of course, that statistic doesn't matter in this series. What does matter is that the Celtics are a franchise that knows winning. Just ask Bill Russell and Sam Jones, because their play does have an impact on this series.
So, to reiterate, I'm crowning the Celtics as NBA Champions for 2010 and the Magic should just quit now.
