    I did this contest elsewhere and have a couple of radio hosts into it from Sirius.

    Just one simple rule. Pick one player EACH DAY of the playoffs from any team playing that day. (i.e. Pistons v Magic and Mavs v Warriors play on the same night, only one player from all those teams)
    2pts for basket and 1 pt for rebounds and assists.
    The trick is: you only can use him once! Pick Dirk? can't pick him anymore in the entire playoffs.

    TNT did this last year between Ernie and Kenny and Charles.

    How many of you are up to it?

    This thread will record all picks and can be used for reference. I'll also keep tabs and score here. Including the Sirius guys. One radio host is Mike Yam from NBAtv who does the fantasy show.

    Roscoe, if I understand this game correctly, you can only pick ONE PLAYER per day. Is that right?

    I'm in, by the way.

    Just pick one player from these games:

    Pistons v Magic
    Raptors v Nets
    Bulls v Heat
    Rockets v Jazz

    Then for Sunday's games, one player from these:
    Mavericks v Warriors
    Cavaliers v Wizards
    Suns v Lakers
    Spurs v Nuggets

    When those are done, I'll post the next set.

    yes----- 2pts for basket and 1 pt for rebounds and assists.
    That's 1 point for EACH REBOUND AND EACH ASSIST.

    Example: Rip 32pts, 7rb and 4 assists = 43

    As I understand it, I cannot use these two players again the entire playoffs. If that is correct then these are my two picks for the weekend.

    Sat: Apr 21

    Dwight Howard

    Sun: Apr 22

    A. Jamison

    If this ain't dumb---forgot to make my own picks. I'll only take one from the Magic/Pistons or Rockets/Nuggets game. Anyone else that hasn't yet can as well. Only other rule is no picks after game starts.

    Today: Jamier Nelson
    tomorrow: A Jamison
