When a week has fewer than 6 games, would you like to see NBA TV games added to get to that number?

I'm good with that decision

Would it be possible to get the post the day before games start for the week? I don't know where to find which games it's going to be, so there's often a small window for seeing the post and making picks in time.

And sure, I'd be down for picking NBA TV games. I watch Mavs (or Thunder if Dallas isn't playing) games most nights anyhow, so watching the games we pick isn't necessarily a motivator for me.

My performance in the pick 'em this year seems to be much like that of my Boston Celtics, very erratic. Maybe it will straighten out soon.

Thursday, Nov. 29:

Warriors are a bit like a failing Thai or Indian restaurant -- no Curry. Toronto by 10 SLAM

Kings are a bit of an enigma this year. They occasionally play well, but the other shoe will drop before too much longer. Los Angeles (non-purple variety) by 4

Friday, Nov 30:

Are the eyes of Texas really upon this one? Houston by 13 SLAM

Nuggets have been shining of late, while the Blazers have been up and down. Denver by 9

I'll try to start doing that again. It's how I'd like this to work.
