The simple rules follow:
There will be about 25-30 NBA games, but each player makes up to only 20 picks per week.  No more than 20 picks per week.
Each player will receive 2 points for a win and 1 extra point for picking the correct margin.
The margins you choose from are as follows: 1-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-19 and 20+.

An example of a pick: Charlotte Bobcats at New Orleans Hornets = Hornets by 15-19
Another example of a pick: Minnesota Timberwolves at Memphis Grizzlies = Wolves by 1-4

You have 2 options:
1. Post your predictions on my blog
2. If you prefer to keep your predications in private, please PM yours to me.

It is very important to remember that all picks must be made by 30 minutes prior to each week's first game tip-off.  I will post the deadline's specific date and time so you should not forget.

Please note that I have to be fair to every player:
1. If any player misses a pick'em week, he or she will receive zero points.
2. If any player submits his/her picks after each week's first game starts, 5 points will be deducted from his or her weekly score total.

Good Luck!

NBA Pick'em Week 1

Wed Oct 28

4   Indiana at Atlanta Hawks by 5-9 
5   Cleveland Cavaliers by 1-4 at Toronto   
6   New York at Miami Heat by 1-4 
7   New Jersey at Minnesota Timberwolves  by 1-4  
8   New Orleans at San Antonio Spurs by 5-9
9   Sacramento at Oklahoma City Thunder by 10-14   
11  Utah at Denver Nuggets  by 5-9
12  Houston Rockets  by 5-9 at Golden State 
I'm too lazy to figure out how I did (that's what we've got LA Lakers Town for--LOL!!), but I will say that the Cavaliers are not pulling their weight in assisting me to get a high score.  Cool  I'm 0-2 with them.

NBA Pick'em Week 1

I didn't expect the Wizzards to run over the Mavericks by 11, that's for sure.Yeah, I didn't expect it either.  It was stunning.  Only Lakers2408 made the correct pick that the Wizards would win over the Mavs.  As for the Celtics/Cavaliers game, only 4 out of us made the correct picks that the Celts had won the first game.  Lakers2408 and Michigan Sports also received one-point bonus apiece for the correct margin.  Sometimes, odd picks can be very tricky.  Let's continue having fun!

NBA Pick'em Week 1

Tues Oct 27
Boston Celtics  at Cleveland Cavaliers Cavs By 5-9
Washington Wizards at Dallas Mavericks  Mavs By 15-19
Houston Rockets at Portland Trail Blazers Blazers By 5-9

Not a good start for the kid.  Whiffed on the first two.  LOL!  Luckily, the Trail Blazers came through twice (by winning and by winning by 9).  I didn't expect the Wizzards to run over the Mavericks by 11, that's for sure.
