They popped champagne in honor of winning their second of THIRTY ONE games. This is a team that has last year's scoring leader and was picked by a few pundits to come out high or on top of the east. only in the nba...

The Suns have underperformed this year, and the loss of Staudemire isn't going to help. Who'da thunk that they and the Jazz would basically switch preseason predictions for 7th/8th place potential spoiler? That said, the fact that the Magic are being so smug in getting their first win since October speaks volumes about what is wrong with the team. Sure, be relieved that the streak is over (for now) but if you don't have some humility after this shit, then you have a long road ahead of you.

I think technically the champagne was for Johnny Davis' first win as head coach. :P

"We had that music crunked, man," Tracy McGrady said Whaa?! I saw a brief post-game interview on the sports news earlier, and McCrady was going on about his leadership and how he helped turn the team around. With attitude like that, here's to a 2-38 record! As an aside, the post-trade Raptors are absolutely crunked! They're actually fun to watch again.

The funny thing is how hard Orlando kept trying to hand the game back to Phoenix with a bunch of stupid turnovers and poor shot selection. Phoenix makes 1 or 2 more shots down the stretch and the Magic collapse.

T-Mac can always come back home if he doesn't like it there.

Tracy won't go back to Toronto. Too many bad memories. I know that Sam Smith is a crackpot but nonetheless.

After all the who is better Kobe or McGrady discussion that has clouded the media over the last few years, after reading the Sam Smith column linked above; I'm inclined to believe it may be another case of Jordan vs. 'Nique.
