The Rules
Make your selections in bold. Please also include how many points you think the specific team will win by (e.g. Los Angeles Lakers by 10 vs. Los Angeles Clippers).
You have until Tuesday, Nov. 5th, 2013 at 5 PM PST to make your selections. Any picks made after this set date and time will not count. Anyone who edits their post after this set date and time will face consequences.
Read the rules here for more details.


The Bets
In your initial post where you will cast your picks, you may make a bet challenge to anyone willing to accept. If someone accepts, he will have to quote your post. Only one person may accept any one bet. You may only bet up to 5 points. Person who made the bet may have to shoot me a PM if the bet is not acknowledged by me in a timely manner to let me know the bet has been accepted. You have until Tues., Nov. 5th at 5 pm PST (8 Eastern) to cast your bets. You may NOT cast bets for games or NBA related events that have passed (eg. do not make a bet saying, "Miami will beat Bulls on opening night" since it already happened).

The Wagers
Read about these here. Please understand the rules before posting. If you clearly did not understand, I will ignore your wager.

Pick one that you DISAGREE with (meaning, you don't think it will happen) if you want to risk a point (Note: You may only choose one):

1) Kevin Love will attempt more 3-Pters than Stephen Curry in the Golden State Warriors vs the Minnesota Timberwolves game on Wed., Nov. 6th.
2) Michael Carter-Williams will score 30 or more points vs the Washington Wizards on Wed., Nov. 6th.
3) The Miami Heat will out rebound the Los Angeles Clippers on Thurs., Nov. 7th.


Wagers are optional. Do not choose one if you don't want to risk losing a point.


THE PICKS:
Game One (Tues., 11/05/13): Atlanta Hawks @ Sacramento Kings
Game Two (Wed., 11/06/13): Washington Wizards @ Philadelphia 76ers
Game Three (Thurs., 11/07/13): Los Angeles Clippers @ Miami Heat
Game Four (Thurs., 11/07/13): Los Angeles Lakers @ Houston Rockets
Game Five (Sun., 11/10/13): San Antonio Spurs @ New York Knicks


Good luck.




Quick Note: If you feel I made a mistake in the standings, please let me know and give me actual concrete evidence that you deserve more points or someone deserves less points than I tallied here. Please also remember that everyone started with 5 points in Week One. All points include the initial 5 points, all picks + predicted "won-by-X-pts" totals, bets and wagers.
Though I believe I got it 100% accurate, I am only human after all and may have missed an accurate or inaccurate prediction.

Yeah, same here. I also struggled deciding the Heat vs Clippers game.

Eh... I probably should have, but now it's too late.

For next week, I'll come with better wagers. The Steph Curry wager seems too easy.

Maybe that's a stupid question, but English isn't my 1st language and I'm not sure if I got this right...if I take the Curry wager, I'm betting that he isn't attempting at least 5 3pt attempts, right? That's how I understood you specifically saying I have to pick a wager I disagree with. Or is it the other way around, and I'm just dumb as f*ck?
