    Well deserved,hedo hit so many big shots for us this year. Also the fact that he elevated his team,a winning team,to the play-ffs has to be rewarded. None of the other candidates had a combination of stats and acheivements to take hedo's spot for the award in my opinion.

    Closing out the raps wont be easy,so a heavy dose of dwight howard should be on the agenda. Hit them first with the one player they havent been able to stop all series,then everything opens up outside. Continue to play sound pick-and-roll defense on the other end as well. Not sure what adjustments the raps will make for game five,we basically got what-ever we wanted at the rim last game so they might try and keep everything in front of them and make us shooters again. So throwing it in to dwight and letting him direct traffic seems like the proper choice,hopefully playing at home he/we can take better care of the ball.
