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, Oct. 29, 2013 at 4 PM PST to make your selections. Any picks made after this set date and time will not count. Anyone who edits their post will face consequences. Read the rules here for more details.

Everyone will be starting off with 5 points each. This is just to allow you all to make your bets.

Betting
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 must shoot me a PM to let me know the bet has been accepted. You have until Thursday, Oct. 31st 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" if it already happened).

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) Dwight Howard will make 50% of his free throws on Sat., Nov. 2nd vs the Utah Jazz.
2) Either Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili or Tony Parker will play 40 or more minutes on Fri., Nov. 1st @ Los Angeles Lakers.
3) Carmelo Anthony will score a minimum of 30 points on Sun., Nov. 3rd vs the Minnesota Timberwolves.


Wagers are optional. Do not choose one if you don't want to risk losing a point.
An example of a winning wager: You choose #1) D12 will make 50% of his free throws on 11/02 vs Jazz. If Dwight shoots below 50% or above 50%, you win a point. If he shoots exactly 50%, you lose a point.


THE PICKS:
Game One (Tues., 10/29/13): Chicago Bulls @ Miami Heat
Game Two (Wed., 10/30/13): Memphis Grizzlies @ San Antonio Spurs
Game Three (Thurs., 10/31/13): Golden State Warriors @ Los Angeles Clippers
Game Four (Fri., 11/01/13): Miami Heat @ Brooklyn Nets
Game Five (Sat., 11/02/13): Houston Rockets @ Utah Jazz


Good luck.

I think instead of the +10 you should just say like Heat by 10. Because with real gambling spreads the +10 means that x team should lose by ten. So really your pick would mean you have Bulls winning by ten. Just saying, if you wanna keep it the way it is, that's fine too.

You're right. I didn't think that through. I'll edit my post to show this.

Did I do it right?


Not at all. The games being chosen are in the OP. Please read through the OP, and if you still don't understand, re-read the rules.

Yeah. You can make a Bet, too, if you have one in mind for anyone to accept and you can also accept a Wager; if not, you're good for the remainder of the week until the Week Two thread goes live.

BTW, any chance you can sticky this thread until the next thread & sticky the rules thread? I will be updating the rules thread whenever the standings reflect a change, and this thread being stickied will help the rest of the participants see it and join in.
I'd appreciate it if you could. If you can't, don't sweat it.

Yeah what I will do is sticky each week...and when you start the next week will unsticky it. If Jeff has an issue with it he will unsticky it...doubt he would though.

just update the standings onto each week thread.
