The participant with the most correct selections out of 15 will win a prize (TBD). Since, obviously, the winner will not be known until the conclusion of the season, the prize won’t be something silly like a Detlef Schrempf trading card (packaged with a reverse dunking Keith Van Horn card) or a ticket stub from a Pistons-Jazz game in 2003. The prize will be something more like a Ben Wallace bobblehead (if I can part ways with it) or a Terry Mills signed mini basketball (if I can find it amongst my disastrous basement). However, like I said, prize is TBD– hopefully the creative minds here at LoD can think of a splendidly awesome prize by the time April 15th rolls around.
**As a reminder this post will appear again shortly before the first regular season game on October 28th.
** Weekly updates of these matchups will be posted as well
I believe most if not all of these pairs will be pretty close at season’s end. If you think any of these are ridiculous and won’t even be close, tell us why in the comments. If you got any others, please post them in the comments as well. And by golly, make some selections too!
