    and with game predictions, its an 82 game season, every team wins game it should lose and loses games it should win over the course of a season. for example, i have no idea whats going to happen in the next game the knicks play, but overall, i can predict that they wont make the playoffs and finish below .500.

    i like doing pregame analysis and just noticing general trends and other important notes (like nba.com does in its previews of each matchup), because thats more interesting and more useful.
    yea i agree with "a knick fan". it's sorta pointless predicting all this stuff....its not a big deal anyways....i juss hope the knicks actually "rebuild" and get sum big men and perhaps make the playoffs sum day lol

    Don't be so pessimistic it wasn't suposed to be something big, it was just a place where you could make some predictions - all for fun!
    anyway, a knick fan, if you have any ideas, something that can be played by everybody, let me know

    i cant think of anything, because on a day to day to basis, just like with any sport, anything can happen in a game of basketball. i can only think of talking about general trends, trades, and overall ideas.

    we were prediciting the high scorer before which isnt as much a crap shoot as is guessing exact statistic ... i think sticking to that would be best

    why do game picker?? it's fun!! chill out.. If you don't want to do game picker then dont do it, there are a lot of people who find it fun, and makes the actual game more fun, if you picked the knicks to win, and they do win.
