Default over/under - the playoffs!

OK - so we had three rounds where 10 people qualified, and a special all-star round where Claudius came out as a qualifier at the end. With some people qualifying more than once it brings the total number of playoff participants to 22, including last season's champion - Super_Size_Swag!

Going into the playoffs each participant that finished first in the three rounds gets a bonus point. Those points go to JeffB, Psi, and lankganglia. And any player that qualified more than once gets a bonus point for each additional top ten finish. So going into this round we have standings that look like this -

-o/u- -bonus- -total-
pzabby 0 2 2
jeffb 0 2 2
Psi 0 2 2
lankganglia 0 1 1
RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 0 1 1
Super_Size_Swag 0 1 1
iRaptor 0 1 1
Rudy-T 0 1 1
Metallikid 0 1 1
Alex 0 0 0
eazy187 0 0 0
raptorsfan345 0 0 0
Shifty.py 0 0 0
DanH 0 0 0
js12 0 0 0
Bankiz 0 0 0
‘trane 0 0 0
Claudius 0 0 0
numbah eleven 0 0 0
LJkAze 0 0 0
Mr. Mxyzptlk 0 0 0
Windex 0 0 0


The first playoff round will feature the same format as always, but with all the Eastern conference games in play each night (or day). At the end of the first round of the playoffs, 6 players at the bottom of the standings will be eliminated, bringing us to a sweet 16.

In the second playoff round we'll do all the games, east and west. And at the end 6 more will be eliminated to bring the field to 10 players.

In the third playoff round we'll take the top five to move on to the Finals.

The points will not be reset from round to round, but instead points accumulated will remain throughout the playoffs.

I'll post the threads for each day in the NBA section, starting Thursday or Friday, and leave a link here as well.

Good luck to everyone!

You start with 22. Then drop 5 after first round and 6 after second and then have 10 left. I think thats a goof

you're right - I knew there had to be something. It should be 6 eliminated each of the first 2.

everyone can still vote in the polls. If someone wants to keep score for the non-qualifiers I have no problem with that.
