Second Annual NBA Predict the Future Contest
November 3rd, 2012 by Chris Humpherys
Ladies and gentlemen, we are back by popular demand. Last year’s NBA Predict the Futures Contest was such a huge success, I’ve received tons of fan mail asking if I was going to host it again.
Okay, so only two people asked but still, it’s the thought that counts.
As most of you recall, prior to tip-off last season, I posted ten questions for all of you to answer, assigning different point values per question. Tophatal took home last year’s honors and is currently sporting some pretty cool SportsChump gear around Polk County, Florida. As a result, he’s very popular with the ladies.
This year’s format is similar, however, I am adding a few more questions, upping it to 20 to increase the difficulty. As usual, the winner will receive bragging rights for the year as well, as a fabulous SportsChump prize pack. Additionally, the good people at A&E Sports have graciously offered a “The World Series: History of the Fall Classic” Deluxe gift set as a grand prize and even though this it’s a baseball-related prize for a basketball pool, I figured you sports junkies wouldn’t mind much.
Since the season is already underway, the deadline to have your picks, entered in the comments section below, is 8 pm Friday, November 9, so act quickly and choose wisely. Best of luck!
