NBA Champs?

Well, you heard it here first…Dwight Howard, resident Orlando Magic star (sorry, Grant), has predicted that we’re going to the Finals.

No, not just GOING to the Finals. Winning a championship.

Well, that’s one way to get a new arena…

ESPN.com had a smug little reaction, which I shall quote here for you:

‘No matter that the Magic finished 36-46 last season and haven’t been to the playoffs since 2003. Kids say the darndest things. “I think our team has the chance to go all the way. We got all the tools,” Howard said, straight-faced. “I think this year we can go all the way.” It didn’t appear he was joking. Perhaps some clarification was in order. You mean all the way to the playoffs, Dwight? “All the way to the championship,” he said. Ah, they’re so cute at this age.’

Yeah, you forget–they’re also fast, agile, energetic, and hungry at this age. If we can’t resurrect Church Street Station or Light Up Orlando, I think a victory parade right down Orange Avenue would be a nice substitute.
