Some may of seen this game on other team forums so thought I would do the same here and see how it goes. First before I plan on doing it next season I want to see a good amount of people interested and that you all see it through and don't bother losing interest after a few months as it will be alot of work for me to do but It is very enjoyable at the same time...

here is how it will work

for every game the Lakers play throughout the season you will get the chance to predict the scores for each game where you will get different points for that prediction. Here is the points system.

Correct winning team - 10 points
Correct score spread - 20 points
Correct game score - 30 points
Correct Top Scorer for the game-10 points

here is an example of how It would work for each game

Lakers 100 Magic 90

Top Scorer- Kobe Bryant

There is a max of 70 points if you get the correct game score right who which team you pick and the top scorer for the game.

I will post a predictions game standings thread which will be updated after each game. Which a mod will hopfully sticky for me..in that thread I will update after each game and it will give you a chance to talk about who is leading and any errors from me inputting your scores.

In terms of picking the correct top scorer you pick who is the top scorer for the whole game not just for the Lakers. Otherwise It would be abit too predictable.

I will post a thread for each game with the headline for example

Lakers Predictions Game- Tuesday 10th november

and all you have to do is predict the score and the top scorer in the game and then you will get points for what your predictions is. I got this idea from a Suns and Kings forum and it worked very well there.

So please reply below if you are interested and want to play this game for next season.

I will list all those who are interested at the bottom of the page..I really hope you are all interested as it is a great game and very enjoyable throughout the season

but if you aren't interested no worries...

One thing, the 'Correct score spread' means the difference? For example the game is Cleveland@Lakers and i lets say 'predict' Lakers by 30, the real result turns out Cleveland 80, Lakers 110...in this case i get 20 points?

Years ago I ran one of these on the old ESPN board. Even with an Excel spreadsheet it was a nightmare to maintain.

I'd like to propose an idea. For every ten posters, one poster should handle the statistics and every few games or so the guys handling the spreadsheets should come together and post a leaderboard. Just a thought because it's going to be really hard to maintain, if even a twentieth of this board decides to join you're f'ed.
