First off, big thanks to all those participating in the first the Lakers Nation’s Post-Season Prediction Fantasy League. Don’t forget that the winner will be getting a special prize from the sponsor of “EJ’s Neat-O Stat of the Night.”

They will also get a surprise package in the mail from the guys from TLN.

Special thanks to all those who stuck with it till the end, and to all those who remembered that it was okay to post on varsityoptimism‘s preview too. Haha. We’ll definitely be looking to bring this back for the regular season, only its going to be revamped, reloaded, and it’s going to bring Los Angeles a Championship, I guarantee it!

Now, without further ado…

LakersAllDay wins with a point total of 60.4!

Please e-mail me where you want your surprise package to shipped to at

It was tight until the end though, as Machinehead18 was a close second with a point total of 59. BringDFishBack was a distant third at 34.6 points while The Mamba (also known as Kobefan11) came in fourth at 21.3 points. K0be08-09 was close on his heals, rounding out the top 5 with 20.2 points.

Congratulations, guys!

    Ahh!! Man, it sucks that it was so close. If I lost by like 5, Id be fine but thats just heartbreaking. Oh well, congratulations to LakersAllDay and everyone else in the top 5.

  • LakersAllDay

    Wow thats really close! I thought i would have been in second cuz i wasn’t really accurate the past few games. Wish we all could have done just one more prediction for game 7 but unfortunately…yeah…

    Thanks Machinehead! u did a good job yourself.
    Also thanks Jonny for starting this contest. i’m looking forward to seeing it again for the next season!

    Bynum’s back, another year of Kobe, and hopefully an improved roster…08-09…GO LAKERS!
