Take a look at this snazzy highlight package, Lakers fan, and convince me it doesn't get the heart pumping:



Great stuff, right? Well, the Magic are back in town tonight, putting these teams back on the same floor for the first time since Game 5. But as we talked about with Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times in our newest PodKast, there doesn't seem to be all that much buzz surrounding what should be an anticipated game. Some of it comes from the Magic's recent struggles (and L.A.'s, as well, at least until Wednesday's win over Dallas). There's not much history between the teams, either. But seriously, it's a Finals rematch. That should count for something, right?

Or does it? You tell us.
