Question NBA Prediction Game

Only because I'm totally not creative as well feeling lazy right now, but would anyone here be interested in doing a similar "Predictions Contest" like the one supersub15 from the RealGM is running currently? I mean, it obviously doesn't have to be identical to theirs, but along the same lines.

How points are earned:
5 points for each Eastern Conference playoff team guessed right - 40 total available points
5 points for each Western Conference playoff team guessed right - 40 total available points
10 points for each team in the second round of the playoffs - 80 total available points
15 points for each team in the conference finals - 60 total available points
20 points for each team in the NBA Finals - 40 total available points
25 points for the NBA champion - 25 total available points
10 points for the Rookie of the Year Award Winner - 10 total available points
15 points for the Defensive Player of the Year Award Winner - 15 total available points
15 points for the Sixth Man of the Year Award Winner - 15 total available points
15 points for the Most Improved Player Award Winner - 15 total available points
5 points for each player named to the All-Rookie Team - 25 total available points
10 points for each player named to the All-NBA First Team - 50 total available points
Total available points: 410 points

First tie-breaker: Poster that has the most correct playoff team guesses in the first round.
Second tie-breaker: Poster that has the most correct team guesses in the second round.
Third tie-breaker: Poster that has the most correct team guesses in the conference championship round.
Fourth tie-breaker: Poster that has the most correct team guesses in the NBA Finals.
Fifth tie-breaker: Most Raptors picks.

I could have added more categories (like COY, etc.), but there's enough stuff here to please everyone.
List of participants to date:

Snoochie
Belsius
CG
Gurkang
Raptorman
Thriller
Fancy

Kay, I'll wait for more of a response from others before I put something together. I don't want to prep it and have only a couple members participate.

I use to run 10 game prediction games elsewhere. That way, new people can join the next one. They were tons of fun.

I suggest some of that guys guidelines for scoring, but over a shorter period of games. And maybe a whole season as well.

Thanks for the input Raptorman ..... I know Major (one of our members here) did a similar contest like the one you described at the end of last season. So he might do one again for the entire season this year that way people can jump and join at anytime. We'll have to wait and see though because I haven't seen him around lately.

Good call CG and in a sec I'm going to post something in the "Moderator" form about another contest that Raptorman might help us with. Just need to run it by the big chiefs lang and Jay first before you move forward.

Possibility, but that might be too thorough if you ask me. Might be tough for me to keep track of and manage. Keep in mind I have various other things on the site that will keep me occupied throughout the season too.
