What? You Didn't Expect The Magic To Hit All Their Threes, Did You?


I guess someone forgot to tell Orlando that if you press left-right-left-right-up-down-"B" as the ball is tipped you will unlock the can't miss a three cheat.

Orlando was 8-of-23 (34.8 percent) from the great beyond and in turn, fell in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, 100-75.

Kobe Bryant went bonkers on the Magic as he poured in 40 points to go along with 8 assists and 8 rebounds. There are truly no words to describe the look of determination Bryant is wearing around the Staples Center.

It is not as if Orlando is out of this series just yet. The Magic came back from a 2-1 deficit to knock off Philadelphia. Then they bumped the defending NBA champs on their home court in decisive fashion despite being down 3-2. And unless you've been sleeping under a rock, you know they eliminated King James and his Court Jesters in the Eastern Conference Finals.

But if they continue to struggle with their outside shot, and Dwight Howard only posts 12-and-15 by taking only six shots and making only one, Kobe might need to make room for a fourth ring.
