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

I ddin't see one, but you may have done it, but you hsould send a reminder to anyone on the list who hasn't sent their picks just to let them know they can now.  I'd hate to lose guys from the contest just because they forgot about the first week.That is exactly what I am going to post a friendly reminder on the NBA main board in a few minutes because some members don't check their PMs.  I hate to lose guys from this contest, either.  Let's keep fingers crossed that some guys or ladies should look up at my reminder post on the NBA main board.

NBA Pick'em Week 1

Logic,
Guess CBS doesn't like my picks, I got a -72 score Have you ever used the notepad for copying and pasting?  I have done many times to prevent my post from getting screwed up at the CBS Sports community.  For an example, when the picks or latest updated voting-off list is posted, I copy them, paste them into the notepad, copy them from the notepad and finally paste into the new "post" box.  I always click on the "Preview" button to make sure that my post looks good and doesn't get screwed up prior to submitting my post to be publicly viewed.  Hope it helps.
It was a joke, I could not care less about my score and reputation.  People here who know me, know me and will pay attention or not regardless if my rating is 98 or 7.  I used word out of habit, it looked fine in preview and then posted the stupid xml tags in the final post from word.  I don't use notepad because it doesn't do the formatting, I like the bold to make sure my picks are obvious, but will do it in wordpad next time to try and avoid the stupid microsoft xml.

Seems like a heck of a lot of work on your part, but thanks for doing it.Sure, you're welcome anytime!  Smile

I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right and what team I'm selecting is pretty obvious, but let me know if I'm wrong.Your picks look fine.

Yeah, -72 is pretty bad.  It doesn't really matter, though.  We're all just competing for second place.  No one's going to beat dharmapunk's 120.  Cool

If you think 120 is good, wait till a drop a plus 130 score on you guys next week.  You should all just give up now.   Laughing
