Well...that's one way to do it.
You know it's been a forgettable NBA season when the highlight of the year for Magic fans came Tuesday night when a few hundred of them cheered loudly at the Amway Center as they watched on TV as bunch of guys dressed in suits prayed for their bouncing pingpong ball to finish No. 1.
Then again, it could have been worse.
They could have been watching the Magic lose 120-91 to the Washington Wizards.
As it was, the Magic played a much closer game Tuesday night, but still lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs came away with the No. 1 pick while the Magic will draft second in the upcoming June draft.

Orlando's very own Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans is going into this upcoming season with a newly revamped offensive line with promises of a running attack that brings him back to his rookie season. He now shares the backfield with bruiser and former Jet Shonn Greene. A punishing downhill runner to match CJ's home run ability... he should fit in perfectly. In his first season in the league he found himself paired with former USC stand out LenDale White, a head down, goal line runner much like Greene. Although, Greene has plenty more upside than now former NFL running back, White, it reminds us of a potential second coming of Tennessee's "Smash 'n' Dash running attack. We all know that if a hole opens up and CJ sees it, he's a threat to any defense with his speed and now with Greene, on short yardage 3rd downs or goal-line situations he's sure to get the push needed to convert. I predict this offense to flourish on the ground this season, making every team they face game plan just a little longer week in and week out. Who knows, with Greene taking some of the attention away from Johnson... we might just see a 2,000 yard rusher out of CJ2k again. Also, if Johnson has production issues like he's had the past few seasons, Greene could step right in and take the bulk of the carries. It's a win, win situation in Nashville this season and me, being the die-hard that I am, am ready for a Titans post-season appearance. One can dream, right? Predictions: Chris Johnson: 1,467 yds, 10 TD's and Shonn Greene: 855 yds, 15 TD's. -Percey

The growing feud between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia took a turn toward Fuzzy Zoeller territory Monday night at the European Tour player’s gala. The Guardian reports Garcia was asked by the Golf Channel whether or not he’d invite Woods over for dinner prior to next month’s U.S. Open.
The Spaniard was then quoted as saying:
“We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.”
Not a good look, Sergio.
