Apparently the holiday shopping season isn't going to hit my shop today (it's going to happen tomorrow right?)...So here's a little game I thought up.

We have a full slate of games tonight in the NBA.  Pick any player who's playing tonight (first come first serve).  The person whose player scores the most points over his season's average win a TP or two.  Players must have played at least 10 games.

Post your player with team and average  like such

REDZ - Joe Blow, Bobcats - 17.1



I'll start with

REDZ - Daequan Cook, Heat - 9.1


Looking for a big night against the Warriors

Start pickin!

(for the record Joe Blow was not my pick  ;D)

=========================================================

Rules of this game:

1) Pick a player who has played in at least 10 games this season (see exceptions in rule 9 for early season implications)

2) Post said player along with your name, the players team, the players average (according to ESPN.com and ONLY ESPN.com)...like such:  Joe Blow, Bobcats: 10.5

3) Picks may be submitted up until tipoff of the involved player's game.

4) You may change your pick at any time prior to the deadline 4

5) The player who scores the most points over his average wins the game for the person who selected him. If a chosen player has a DNP for the night he will be given a -5 score or 1 point less than lowest active participant's score for the night if their score is worse than -5.

6) Anyone can start a new game for any day that there are games on the NBA schedule.  Picks may be submitted no sooner than midnight Boston time for that days games. As long as there are a minimum of 2 participants - it's GAME ON!

7) START OF SEASON
We will use ESPN's averages from the previous season until a player has established a 10 game average for the current season.  Anyone who has played less than 10 games the previous season is not eligible until he has established a 10 game average for the current season.  If a player did not play 10 games the previous season either (rookies, injuries etc...) he is not eligible to be picked.

8) "VOID LIST" : IF YOU ARE THE WINNER ON ANY GIVEN DAY, YOU MAY NOT PICK THE SAME PLAYER AGAIN FOR A PERIOD OF 7 DAYS

I almost picked paul, just because he's at 17 even almost, and it seems like he's due to hang 26+ on someone.

I think perk will get helped out by brand's loss more though.
