Repost: Forum Writing Contest
Alot of ppl are asking for some sort of contest, so here's the deal.

Here's the contest: Anyone can enter. Due date is Midnight, Friday, Aug 7th. Send a top 10 list with comments (related to the upcoming NBA season or offseason) - for instance top 10 worst moves made during the offseason - to my email - [email protected]. I will decide who wins. The winner's "article" will be posted on the site, and you will have bragging rights until the next one. We'll do this again soon but change the topic.

Dhamp

What about a competition to see who's the smartest on the site? I don't want any drama when I say this but writing an article doesn't prove who's smater.

Dhamp...the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.

I agree With Dhamp.This by no means is going to proclaim the smartest person on the site.

guidelines
criteria - articles will be based on all the above. - creativity, writing skills, insight, and entertainment value. (obviously it's opinion based so your opinion doesn't need to be exactly the same as mine, just back up your statements)

i don't agree with a lot of what you say, but I think that you are an excellent business man. This is yet another good idea... props.

One other thing... I think it'd be great if, on the draft history pages, you could scroll through the draft years with an arrow like :

<< 1999 2000 2001 2002 >> I'd like that a lot.

I got your back man

That topic was jumping around a lot. It's one thing to hype and believe in Jennings, but top 7 right now is silly

yeah

I'm thinking about doing the top 10 most dissapointed teams this off-season. It will include moves made and not made, picks, where they a year ago compared to this year, how they sit financially for next off-season etc. Unless i think of something better. I don't expect to win, but I enjoy arguing and writing about basketball.

I don't like this. Sure it's what some people are asking for, but the topic and 10 things just isn't something I would want to have bragging rights over.
