Let’s take a momentary break from fake basketball to focus a bit on Razzball’s real basketball predictions for the 2011 season.

Firstly, Raise a glass (or a highball if you’re reading this in the offices of Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Price) in honor of Razzball Basketball, which turns a year old today. It’s been a long ride. It’s been approximately 365 days – which I think everyone can agree is a long time to be a-ridin’.Please, blog, may I have some more?
