It’s playoff time in the NBA and we here at Razzball would like to share our picks.  Please feel free to comment and/or mock (strongly encouraged) our picks and share your own.  NOTE:  The selections were made before Derrick Rose tore his ACL (and Iman Shumpert but if you picked the Knicks to beat the Heat then you either are 1.) from New York or 2.) a huge LeBron/Heat hater)

James Redacted:

Yeah, you caught me.  You didn’t believe it because there aren’t any grizzly bears in Memphis.  Look how smart you are!  ESPN readers would have tweeted the headline without thinking.  Now if the headline read “Gilbert Arenas Fights Grizzly Bear In Vancouver” then you totally would have believed it.

As I’m not sure if James [Redacted] wants his entire name out there for people to know, we’ll just call him James [Redacted], or if you’re feeling particularly saucy, let’s see if we can’t get RedJam to stick.
