LeBron Drops 51 As Heat Beat Magic
Do NOT anger this man!
There is one universal truth that Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith must come to realize. And that is, don't make LeBron James angry. Otis Smith wouldn't like him when he's angry. During the off-season, Smith smugly questioned LeBron's competitiveness after King James decided to sign with Miami. And clearly, Smith is now learning the hard lesson that talking shit about LeBron is up there with New Coke and George Clooney's batnipples in the pantheon of bad ideas. Dwight Howard is also learning this lesson (the LeBron angry one, not Clooney's batnipples).
It's always a hoot watching the Heat play the Magic, if just to watch Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy waddle down the court exasperated, or the way his face progressively disappears into his neck as the game gets tougher. And with LeBron starting things off by hitting his first eleven shots, and scoring 23 points in the first quarter, Van Gundy quickly took on the incredulous look of a man whose son just told him he wants to sing show tunes for a living. Always a delight to behold!
