On Sunday the Orlando Magic downed the Los Angeles Lakers 89-75.

The Magic looked like every bit of the 2009 team that went to the NBA Finals, and proved to the NBA that they are still a contender not only in the East but for this year's championship.

This slideshow includes five reasons Orlando can stick with the big boys in the East, and five reasons they can't. The final slide is a verdict on where we will see the Magic come playoff time.

Feel free to comment below on where you think the Magic will be in June, and if the Celtics and Heat have something to fear.
