First off, big thanks to all those participating in the Lakers Post-Season Prediction Fantasy League!

(You can still join if you want, go to this post and look under Statistical Predictions to find out what you need to do.)

Don’t forget the that winner gets a special prize from the sponsor of “EJ’s Neat-O Stat of the Night.”

[Important Notice]
Still seems like nobody realizes that they can post predictions for the games previewed by varsityoptimism.

Updated Standings (current as of Game Six win over the Jazz)

1. Machinehead18: 25.4 (he got pretty lucky with the point margins)
2. LakersAllDay: 14.9
3. BringDFishBack: 9
4. The Mamba: 8.3
5. Lakerfan4life: 8.2
6. SiKWiDIt: 7

Everyone else is pretty much out of the running at this point, although if you actually post your predictions for every game and happen to get lucky with the final score prediction then hey, who knows. This is the NBA Playoffs: Where Amazing Happens.

Just so you know guys, this is kind of a beta run to see how popular this sort of thing is with the Lakers Community. If there isn’t a whole lot of interest then we’ll scrap this for next season, but if theres enough interest we might be looking into expanding on this for the upcoming season, so look out :D

Question, TLN Members… Is this something you would like to see for next season?

Sound-off in the comments and tell us what you think!

    Nugget, You forgot the “h” in the link for varsity’s shootaround therefore it is not working.

    Fixed. Thanks for the heads-up. :D

  • Jonny

    yeah guys i mentioned this in the very first preview of the post season, and I’ve also done an update for how it’s going already (after the nuggets series)

    anyhow, the point isn’t really that you knew about it or not, the question is “is this something you guys want to see next year?”

  • Machinehead18

    Wow. I’m getting really lucky. Man, Id be up by like 40 if I was predicting on varsityoptimism’s posts. Haha.

    I would like to see this next year, and the year after and so on. I like predicting the stats and scores. It’s fun.

    Good luck to everyone else who’s predicting.

  • BringDFishBack

    Im kinda surprised im up there considering im pretty sure on all of mine i’ve picked farmar under 3+ 3s hoping he breaks out of his slump, haha.
