Predictions contest

Recommended Posts

Soooo, I had mentioned this to a few people back and now I finally had time to create the spreadsheet for it.  On another board that I used to post on  a long time ago a poster created a contest where everyone would post their predictions for the entire Western Conference.  It was usually fun to look back on.  The small prize was that everyone would have to post whatever tagline that the winner wanted under their name for a week.  Idk, yall can come up with something better.

Basically the spreadsheet is simple.  You make a prediction and for every spot that you are off in the standings, you get a point.  So the lowest point total wins.  As a short illustration

Actual Standings:

1. Warriors

2. Spurs

3. Rockets

4. Grizzlies

Predicted Standings:

1. Grizzlies = 3 points

2. Warriors = 1 point

3. Rockets = 0 points

4. Spurs = 2 points

For a total of 6 points.

If enough are interested I can keep track and update periodically.  Atleast 10 probably need to participate for it to be fun.  Let me know and post your predictions here if interested.

Wow 11 chip? Ouch 

Everyone should know by now I always lowball pre-season predictions. I’d rather be surprised on the upside than crushed on the downside.

Actually, I'm feeling incredibly optimistic today for some reason.  Therefore it is reasonable to assume this will turn out horribly.

1. Warriors

2. Spurs

3. Thunder

4. Rockets

5. T'Wolves

6. Grizzlies

7. Nuggets

8. Clippers

(Pelicans, then Blazers)

Exactly.

The Grizzlies are going to surprise. I think Parsons will rebound from last year's disaster.

Its ok to doubt but they are just too stacked paper to not be a playoff team. 3 players with top 10-15 talent. And veteran support to boot. And bench weapons.

No. Considering my “Subshine predictions” actually turned out slightly worse on average than I predicted. I’ve always tried to be honest and then take a few games off my expectations so I can be surprised on the upside.

i just seemed like a blind sunshine supporter compared to the Debbie Downers of the past. 😉

Some of you (and most of the national media, as usual) are burning the chances of this team to make the playoffs, I'm not ready to make a prediction myself, too many ifs. I honestly think this could be a great season or a horrendous one and I wouldn't be surprised with any of the outcomes.

But, if we finally don't make it and we enter the lottery, what the hell is the status of our 1st round pick and Boston?? I've read it's 1-9 protected in 2019, 1-6 in 2020 and unprotected in 2021, but what about 2018??

Its ours in 2018. Future picks have to be 2 years apart when traded. So when the deal with Boston was made, the pick was to be conveyed two yeara after the Cleveland/Denver/Portland pick was conveyed, which was this summer.

First 4 teams with much better records than the rest.  Teams 6 through 11 will all be very close record wise.  Tiebreakers will be needed. 

1) Warriors
2) Spurs
3) Rockets
4) Thunder


5) Wolves
6) Blazers
7) Jazz
8) Clippers

9)  Pelicans
10) Grizz
11)  Nuggets

 


12) Mavericks
13) Lakers
14) Suns
15) Kings
