2014 Threadhead NBA Playoff Pick 'Em
« on: April 17, 2014, 09:16:50 AM »
This game will be set up like the Hockey Pick 'Em as that seems to be a popular and fun way to do it. Like the hockey pick 'em, I will make the questions such that even someone who doesn't really follow the NBA can participate.

It will be set up and scored per round (4 rounds) with the finals being the Championship series.

Like the hockey pick 'em, if there is a tie, a secondary question will be thrown out, so don't pick ties (i.e. the 2 players in the secondary question will have the same number of rebounds.

The deadline for picks will be 5 minutes tip-off of the first game of the NBA playoffs. Which will be Brooklyn vs. Toronto on Saturday at 12:30pm EST.

Changes can be made to any of your picks prior to opening tip of that series. Just post the change in this thread.

Let's have some fun with this.
