2018-2019 Season Predictions Update

Okay, so now that the regular season is over, we can see where everyone is at. Here's the link for the predictions this year: https://www.nbadraft.net/forum/season-picks-game-2018-2019-edition

In the East:
1. stifler101: 37 points (nailed Toronto, Philadelphia, Indiana, Detroit, Charlotte, and New York)
2. mamadou: 35 points
3. nbadraft consensus: 33 points
4. dmo21, Zouldiers, BallerScript, tblazer_NZ: 31 points
8. OhCanada: 29 points
9. festar35, chewy: 27 points
11. llperez: 26 points
12. morestealsthanscores, thenilonator, cheetosjalapeno17, Dc Fraz: 25 points
16. Andrew1984, r377: 21 points (both of you only got Detroit right)

Some fun facts: Nobody had Brooklyn or Orlando making the playoffs. Everybody had Washington making the playoffs (seems like this happens every year). Most accurate choice: Philadelphia at 3.

In the West:
1. stifler101: 35 points (yeah, first again...)
2. DC Fraz: 33 points
3. tblazer_NZ: 31 points
4. Zouldiers, mamadou: 29 points
6. cheetosjalapeno17: 28 points

11. dmo21, BallerScript, morestealsthanscores, r377: 23 points
15. thenilonator: 21 points
16. Andrew1984, OhCanada: 19 points

Fun facts from the West: Everyone except 2 people (thenilonator and DC Fraz) had GS getting 1st. Everybody had the Lakers making the playoffs except for DC Fraz. Majority of people had Portland missing the playoffs. Majority of people had New Orleans making the playoffs. Everyone had the Clippers missing the playoffs.

Overall Standings on Standings:
1. stifler101: 72 points (surprise, surprise)
2. mamadou: 64 points
3. tblazer_NZ: 62 points
4. Zouldiers, nbadraft concensus: 60 points
6. DC Fraz: 58 points
7. dmo21, festar35, BallerScript: 54 points
10. llperez, cheetosjalapeno17: 53 points
12. chewy,: 52 points
13. OhCanada, morestealsthanscores: 48 points
15. thenilonator: 46 points
16. r377: 44 points
17. Andrew1984: 40 points (Andrew, I think you go too bold every year in the standings, always near the bottom)

And now for the statistical portion (PPG, RPG, APG, BPG, SPG). Rankings are:
1. dmo21, chewy: 16 points (the highest amount to date in my records)
3. mamadou: 15 points
4. Andrew1984, BallerScript, morestealsthanscores: 14 points
7. llperez, tblazer_NZ: 13 points
9. stifler101: 11 points (oh, how the mighty have fallen)
10. OhCanada, Zouldiers: 9 points
12. festar25, thenilonator, cheetosjalapeno17, DC Fraz, r377: 8 points (atleast y'all have company in last)

Now we have to make the long wait until the awards are announced (hate how they pushed it back so far now). But here are the rankings as of now:

1. stifler101: 83 points (not gonna call it a run away, but I think it's in the bag)
2. mamadou: 79 points
3. tblazer_NZ: 75 points
4. nbadraft consensus: 74 points (proving we are smarter as a group)
5. dmo21: 70 points (woot, woot!)
6. Zouldiers: 69 points
7. chewy, BallerScript: 68 points
8. llperez, DC Fraz: 66 points
11. festar35, morestealsthanscores: 62 points
13. cheetosjalapeno17: 61 points
14. OhCanada: 57 points
15. thenilonator, Andrew1984: 54 points (Andrew, you're not in last!!)
17. r377: 52 points (maybe this is karma for you always pulling up old posts to prove that you were right about something... haha)

Well that's the update for right now. Remember to check back later once the regular season awards are announced!

Final Outcome!

So now that the NBA finally announced their regular season awards (I hate that they wait this long, so dumb), I can finally do the last update to the 2018-2019 Season Prediction Game.

Here is how everyone did in the awards portion of the event:

1. Zouldiers with 20 points (nailed the MVP, DPOY, 6MOY and ROY)
2. festar35 and nbadraft consensus with 18 points
4. dmo21 with 16 points
5. cheetosjalapeno17 with 15 points
6. tblazer_NZ with 14 points
7. llperez and r377 with 13 points
9. morestealsthanscores with 12 points
10. BallerScript, thenilonator and mamadou with 10 points
13. OhCanada, stifler101 and DC Fraz with 8 points
16. chewy with 5 points
17. Andrew1984 with 4 points

Nobody got any points for Siakam winning MIP, which is always the hardest award to predict.

The final outcome came down to the wire with stifler101 not doing well in the awards portion while Zouldiers came on strong at the end. Here are out 2018-2019 Season Predictions final standings:

1. stifler101 with 91 points (had enough points from the standings portion to hold off several worthy competitors)
2. Zouldiers, tblazer_NZ and mamadou with 89 points (y'all came on strong at the end to challenge stifler101)
5. dmo21 with 86 points
6. festar35 with 80 points
7. llperez with 79 points
8. BallerScript with 78 points
9. cheetosjalapeno17 with 76 points
10. morestealsthanscores and DC Fraz with 74 points
12. chewy with 73 points
13. OhCanada and r377 with 65 points
15. thenilonator with 64 points
16. Andrew1984 with 58 points

Fun note: the nbadraft consensus scored 92 points (which would have been first), so I guess we are smarter as a whole.

Congrats to stifler101 on winning all these bragging rights which you can now use on the forum to prove to other posters you are smarter than them!

Looking forward to doing this next year. Hopefully we can get more posters and make this a grand event!
