    sign me the f*ck up, Billy f*cking Hoyle!


    Who wins, NY or BK* - NY wins

    Statistical Category #1: Points Who will be the leading scorer when the night is done? The money is on Melo, but maybe some see a resurgence of Stat? How about another outburst from Dwill like we saw last year? Lets hear it. - LOPEZ

    Statistical Category #2: 3pt FG Made This one might just come down to who chucks up the most.
    MELO

    Miscellaneous Category #3: Who ends the night missing more FG, Melo or Johnson? In this category i'm bringing the spotlight back to the Melo JJ matchup. It's a simple question: Who misses more tonight, Melo or JJ? MELO

I'm hoping that adding the categories will get more people into this and posting. Anyway, expect some more creative stuff from the miscellaneous category, but I thought it would be good to spotlight that matchup this time.

    Here it is again:

    Preview:
    It's the regular season debut of the Nets in their new home, the Barclay's Center. Will we see frustrated Knicks fans from the southern borough donning black and white in support of the new franchise? Or will the makeup of this crowd be mainly commuters from Jersey unwilling to accept that their team didn't want them? Either way, the NBA needs this game to mark the beginning of an intense rivalry. The key showdown in this game will be between two men who each have something to prove. Both JJ and Melo are regarded as selfish players, and with the expectations high on each, it will be interesting to see who starts off the year hot. It's with this matchup in mind that I have chosen my categories. For clarification: stat categories 1 and 2 apply to everyone in the game, while the miscellaneous category is just Melo V JJ

    Who wins, NY or BK*

    Statistical Category #1: Points Who will be the leading scorer when the night is done? The money is on Melo, but maybe some see a resurgence of Stat? How about another outburst from Dwill like we saw last year? Lets hear it.

    Statistical Category #2: 3pt FG Made
    This one might just come down to who chucks up the most.

    Miscellaneous Category #3: Who ends the night missing more FG, Melo or Johnson? In this category i'm bringing the spotlight back to the Melo JJ matchup. It's a simple question: Who misses more tonight, Melo or JJ?

    Ok KO posters. Here's how it works if I haven't been clear. Edit your predictions into the post below at any time between now and the game (or if you haven't posted yet just make a new post). Once you have your predictions down, don't edit that post again until I have updated the standings because i'm going by the time stamp of last edit, which has to be before the game starts. Once I have posted these standings, if you think I got something wrong, let me know and as long as you haven't edited your post, I will gladly correct it. If you are worried about somebody else stealing your great pick, then I will also accept submissions by PM (I don't see this as being necessary until we are down to the final few weeks).
    Who wins, NY or BK NYK win.

    Statistical Category #1: Points Melo drops 29 to lead all scorers. I predict he shoots a lot of free throws, but has around .400 FG%.

    Statistical Category #2: Knicks - Novak

    Miscellaneous Category #3: Who ends the night missing more FG, Melo or Johnson? I'll say Johnson officially, but I think it'll be Melo. Can't go burning him on the opening night.

    - Thanks, Billy Hoyle!

    I'm in this MOFO

    Who wins, NY or BK*- New York

    Statistical Category #1: Points Who will be the leading scorer when the night is done? Carmelo has a streak I think of leading all scorers in his opening night game. Melo for 33

    Statistical Category #2: 3pt FG Made- Deron Williams something like 3

    Miscellaneous Category #3: Who ends the night missing more FG, Melo or Johnson? JJ, I think Brewer/JR/Melo slow him down

    Damn, everyone's gonna lose this challenge if the Knicks lose to BK!
    With that said, Knicks all day, everyday.

    Winner - New York Knickerbockers

    Most points - Carmelo Anthony

    Most 3 point FG made - Steve Novak

    Misses more FGA - Joe Johnson (Brewer will give him a hard time)

    Knicks Win

    Melo is high scorer

    Novak hits the most 3's

    Brook Lopez gets harassed into missing many, many shots by Tyson, Camby and Sheed! , but if it's between just Joe and Melo.....I'll choose Melo because he'll shoot a lot more than J.Johnson.

    Thanks for doing this, I'm in.

    Who wins, NY or BK - Knicks

    Statistical Category #1: Points - Carmelo Anthony

    Statistical Category #2: 3pt FG Made - I'm going to take a wild guess and go with Deron Williams, he chucks up a lot of threes.

    Miscellaneous Category #3: Who ends the night missing more FG, Melo or Johnson? - I think Melo will miss more since he will be relied on more than Johnson.
