2010-11
NBA
Tipping Comp


The NBA season is just under two months away. Come one, come all and tip your way through the NBA!

Rules:
  1. One point for a correct tip.
  2. Deadlines will be Friday midnight FT with about a three hour grace period thereafter. The tipping comp organizer will determine if a post is late.
  3. Default is equal to the number of away wins each week.
  4. Tips not in by the first game's tipoff will receive default score.
  5. We will tip the opening day games, then 15 games each weekend (all Saturday and enough Sunday/Monday to equal 15).
  6. As per last year, the midpoints around the All-Star weekend will not be tipped.


Bonus points:
  1. One point for picking a result solo, or one of two, provided 12 tippers apply.
  2. One point for picking 13 or more of 15. There were enough weeks last year that earned a near miss bonus, and this year's comp will determine next year's eligibility.
  3. Tippers will be ineligible for bonus points if they tip all homes or all bar one.


Sign up here if you are interested.

I'll do this again here's hoping that the Heat finish 0-82 proving you can't buy championships.

What about the Yankees in baseball? They do it all the time.

*indicates late tips



Welcome to the 2010-2011 NBA season! Will paper_aero retain his title or will see a new champion this year? We have 24 more weeks to find that out.

Welcome new tippers N-Bomb, who takes the first weekly win, George95, and BxBarracuda. No shows from last year are alphabetical ASA (long term NBA tippers know his style), ElfTwinkle, and brownie83.

How many teams score 128 and lose? Ask the Rockets, because they did, but against any other team, they'd have won the other games.

The Nets have more wins (one) in one game than they did (zero) in their first 18 last year...way to go New Jersey and Avery Johnson. They beat the Pistons to keep from extending their now-NBA record worst start to a season. Will someone threaten that this year? Are any of the teams that bad? We'll see...by week 4 or 5.

The new look Heat were beaten at Boston, who then lost to Cleveland on the road. Didn't LeBron once play for Cleveland? He can't beat them, but his old team can. How many wins will the Heat have? One prediction by ESPN put them at 78-4...don't see that happening. Sixty-five is possible, but to eclipse the 72-10 Bulls? wink

Until next week, everyone, sink a 3-ball!

Yeah, I have to admit I'm a fairweather Cavs fan. Definitely not a fairweather Browns fan, obviously. I'll probably catch a game here and there, but won't be following as closely as I did when Lebron was here.

Welcome ConzaBhoy to the NBA comp. He didn't get a weekly win, but sure came close, and moved from default last to 8th...midpoint.

Four players went out on a limb by picking solo (or one of two)...LeoDaVinci for Sacramento to win in Cleveland, ConzaBhoy for picking New Orleans to win at San Antonio, and both ozzz2002 and George95 for picking the Jazz to win in Oklahoma...thejazzkickazz would be proud of both of them.

Sypher also went out on a limb by saying that the Lakers would lose at home...what was he thinking? And against Golden State too? shocked

No one scored less than default this week, and themonarch edited his tips after deadline, incurring the late point deduction.

Until next week, everyone, sink a 3-ball!

We tipped our best overall so far this season, with an average of 10/15.

Not only did George95 take the weekly win, he also was the only one to take a bonus point by tipping at least 13, and has skipped to a six point lead after only three weeks!

Our organizer must not be good at basketball, as he has now dropped to the cellar. He and gtho4 both take the cutlery of the week, and they both scored over half!

Two games were not decided in 48 and literally took five (one did twice as five wasn't even enough)...extra minutes.

Five games were tipped by everyone this week...that's one of every three!

Until next week, everyone, sink a 3-ball!

Outside of two, we all tipped ten or more this week. Those two are the Spoon taker and the cellar dweller.

The rate we are going we should break 70% next week, since we've gone up each week tipping.

We had three pick up bonus points. Both dg_dave and Sypher picked the Pistons to win in Sacramento, and themonarch picked the Suns to win at Staples...we all were saying "what was he thinking?" when we should have been on his track.

Five games were tipped by everyone again this week...after having five tipped by everyone last week as well!

Until next week, everyone, sink a 3-ball!

We went 0-fer-Miami this weekend, as Miami lost twice! Boston at least got us one, but not against Toronto.

Only one did worse than default as he takes his 2nd Spoon.

Three games were tipped by everyone this week, compared to the five the last two weeks. If Miami and Boston had gone 2-0, we would have had six all correct this week! There are three teams that we should go with as they've all lost only one or two (I won't mention them to jinx them, but you know who they are).

One game was not decided in 48 and literally took five...extra minutes.

This was the third week in a row where the R-H was 8-7...six players scored that eight point level this week!

Until next week, everyone, sink a 3-ball!

Miami lost again, and seven of the 13 decided that Miami would beat Dallas in Dallas, considering Bosh is now 0-8 in Dallas for his career, and Miami is 0-13 in their last 13 in Dallas.

Two players went out on a limb and scored bonus points; Sypher did it twice.

N-Bomb fell to his lowest point of the season, in fourth...even though he scored nine.

Outside of ozzz2002, all other tippers have at least broken the top 10 now...and ozzz is not far from it, even in 13th.

ConzaBhoy has gone inactive, but will continue to earn default scores. If someone tips and his score is below 2nd last, he will come even with 2nd last and score correct tips. If his score is above 2nd last, he will not gain points as he would be over the bottom.

This was the fourth week in a row where the R-H was 8-7!

Until next week, everyone, sink a 3-ball!
