As we get to the few games, let me know if you wish to PM the picks rather than
post. The only way that I can win is to hope the leaders take the same side and force my hand.
I will make my pick first if that is what you guys prefer.

You guys fight this out. I don't deserve to win. Put me down for Los Angeles in games 4 and 5.
Good luck down the stretch boys, I think I just shit myself again. I'm happy to have made it this far.

Might have to pull a switcheroo. How about playing all 7 games series's to this point 2-2-1-1-1 then the Finals 2-3-2. Could very possibly force my pick to be Orlando tomorrow. Lets see what happens at barbooth tonight then I will decide.

Nice job, winners, although Junior second-guesses himself out of an outright title.

As is tradition, the highest finisher who has never cashed in the pool's history is responsible for the bill at the restaurant of the winners' choice.
V has chosen Upstairs. Cas, let us know which day is good. I can pick up your credit card if your schedule is too tight.

For each day that an NBA playoff game is on the board, select one game ATS.

Most wins at the end of the NBA Playoffs wins. We may pay two places if we get enough entries.
