Thanks for doing this, Ufez.

So close! If I had just picked Cleveland in 7 instead of 6.

Thanks for running the contest, Ufez.

I picked Cleveland in 6 as well, on the theory that if it went back to Oakland tied, there was no way the Warriors would lose.

I'm rather surprised that I finished as well as I did. Before the finals I fully expected to have an outside shot at the Costanza. Thanks for running this, Ufez, these things are always fun. I guess I have a little of the Warriors in me, having torn up the regular season pick 'em and then doing poorly in the playoffs. I blame too much time on the baseball field, but it was more like too little time doing my homework.

I got Draymonded. Or Leboned, I suppose.

Vanna will sell you a "r" at a reasonable price. Unless you want to stick with Leboned.

If rcade ever wins one of these Pick'Ems, that's when we get trolled by a member of the Bulger family.

(Whitey won the Mass. State Lottery while his brother was President of the State Senate).

I've considered it and will stick with Leboned.

Wow, I just flat out suck when it comes to picking NBA games. Still fun, though. Thanks for doing this Ufi.
