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)
Eastern Conference Finals (ECF): Heat/Bulls – Heat in 5
I made this selection before Rose tore his ACL and I’m keeping it. The Heat did it last year in 5 without Rose missing significant playing time so I didn’t see much reason to pick the Bulls this year (What about Rip Hamilton you say? I say, what about Rip Hamilton?). Even with Rose being out I think the Bulls defense is too good for the aging Celtics or Hawks to overcome.
Western Conference Finals (WCF): Thunder/Grizzlies – Thunder in 7
Love them Grizzlies. The best defensive team in the western conference is going to be hard to take do...
