<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/the-chris-bosh-trade-talks-have-already-begun"> Riddle me this: when you're 6-foot, 30-inches on the basketball court, you'd think a 6'1" flashy, point guard would rather run up on the Secret Service with a water gun than test you in the paint, right? Well if you're <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/chris-bosh">Chris Bosh</a> and you have "kick me" sign on your Heat jersey, the answer is WRONG.

As your reward for knocking off the top seed, you've been tasked with taking on a well rested Orlando team that's gone through the playoffs so far looking like gangbusters. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to hand the Magic their first playoff loss. Four times.
