2009 NBA Playoff Betting Challenge of Rad!

Alright: the contest I've always talked about is finally here! The Nextian NBA Playoff Challenge. Yeah! Sweet!

Please click on, enlarge and print out the attachment to get your official Nextian bracket. You must have it completed by Saturday 4/17/09 by 9:29 am Pacific time. The Celtics/Bulls tip off at 9:30 am tomorrow morning. You can either email ( or fax completed brackets to me at 415.883.2553 so that I can get everyone's date stamp. One bracket per person. Buy in is $10 and we'll have a 1st and 2nd place payout. Incredible.

The rules are as follows: write in your winner of each matchup. Next to their name, write what you think the final results were for that matchup. For example: if you think the Lakers are going to destroy the Jazz in Round 1 with the Jazz only winning one game, write "Lakers" and then (4-1) next to their name. Do this for the winner of every matchup through the finals.

You will get 5 points for correct 1st round predictions, 10 points for correct conference semi-finals predictions, 15 points for the conference finals and 20 points for picking the NBA Champion. Points will be deducted from your round score based on how many games you were off for the series. So if the Lakers take it in game 7 and win 4-3 while you predicted 4-1, you will get a -2 since you were two games off. Your score for that matchup would be 5 minus 2 equals 3. Get it? Nice work genius.

Please send your $10 buy-in to me at:
21 Commercial Blvd., Suite 4
Novato, CA 94949

Thanks for the memories and good luck on predicting NEXT
