The only people now who think there will be an ORL/DET game 7 are the guys in Orlando who guaranteed victory in Game 5.

I know this site is awful announcing, but its good to give props to guys when they actually deserve them. The commentary after the Spurs-Hornets game (talking about both that game and the Pistons-Magic game) was so dead on it was scary. The great thing about Barkley, Magic and Kenny is they have so much actual, game knowledge, and they're not afraid to say things that other people won't. And Ernie does such a good job moderating. The entire commentary after the games was just great, I really enjoyed it. Props to TNT.
