SportsNation is willing to cut Magic rookie Courtney Lee some slack for putting the "oops" in alley-oops with his near-miss at the end of Game 2 -- two out of every three voters think it was at least a difficult shot (as for the one out of three who think it was easy, remind us not to play you in H-O-R-S-E). But with Lee's team down two games after eventually falling in overtime, you're not giving the Magic nearly as much breathing room.

When the NBA Finals began, 41 percent of SportsNation thought the Magic would silence the hype once again and beat the Lakers. After the first two games, well, see for yourself how things have changed. It's enough to make even Kobe smile.
