Magic Thanksgiving

ESPN.com - NBA - 2007-2008 Hollinger Power Rankings

It might not last, then again Dwight Howard may make it last for another 6 to 8 years. It's at least worth taking the time to savor as we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Your Orlando Magic are the second best ranked team in the NBA by John Hollinger after last nights win over New Orleans. According to Hollinger the only statistically better team at the moment is Boston who lost on Sunday to the Magic.

The Magic are first in the Southeast Division.

They are 0.5 games better than Boston for first place in the conference.

They are 7-0 on the road.

The last time they were 10-2 they were a playoff team.

They are finishing games and winning where they used to give up and lose.

Stan Van Gundy would win coach of the year if the vote were today.

Dwight Howard was the Eastern Player of the Week last week.

Dwight Howard is now getting press about being a candidate for league MVP.

They are currently on a 68 win pace.

Yes, it will all quiet down sometime soon. And it's way to early to get excited. But we can still be thankful for a wonderful start to a long NBA season.

Go Magic!

    I remember when the Magic drafted Dwight Howard number one in 2004, how some "experts" thought the Magic made a huge mistake by not taking Emeka Okafor instead. Three and a half years later, the Magic look pretty smart now, don't they. At least former GM John Weisbrod did one thing right.

    Okafor is a solid center, no question, but he probably won't ever be better than he is now, while Dwight, who is rapidly turning into a superstar, still can get better... that's the scary thing.
