Here's a little game I thought up.

We have a full slate of games tonight in the NBA.  Pick any player who's playing tonight (first come first serve).  The person whose player scores the most points over his season's average win a TP or two.  Players must have played at least 10 games.

Post your player with team and average  like such

REDZ - Joe Blow, Bobcats - 17.1

If the next person could paste the list of players taken into their selection we can keep a running tab of whose been taken.

We'll set a 6:30 PM Eastern deadline



(for the record Joe Blow was not my pick  Grin)
Yup

Yeh, Edgar I checked in after finally getting a chance to watch the C's game and saw that.  My head was about to pop from seeing the syllabus for my next months course so I missed the joke, sorry.  Redz is gonna be busy busy busy soon (and may lose some hair)

Anyhow here are your big results

cordobes - Kevin Love, Minnesota: 7.6 / 19 = +11.4
Redz - Kosta Koufos, Jazz: 5.1 / 8 = +2.9

Congrats on a fine one-on-one whoopin' cordobes

TP from me!

Yup

WOWO! Finally, a win! When I first read Edgar's post I was truly disappointed... I was on the verge of retiring myself from this game. TP for a fierce battle Redz, it was a good night for the rookies.

Could we do this fantasy style?? Where every night, you pick a starting 5 at every position (nba.com positions apply only) and whoever has the best plus minus wins??

Great thread idea Redz... glad to be back to find this game.

Hoyo, I'm constantly coming up with new fangled ideas for this sort of thing, but I like this one for its simplicity.  The only element I thought might be nice was doing some cumulative stats for each participant, but honestly I'm going to have a lot less time for all of this sort of stuff really soon.

But I all means, invent away.  If it's fun people will play (I just can't run it  ;) )

That's the other part I like about this, is that it's pretty easily maintained by the people playing it.
Yup
