Current Standings

There will be more games to pick this week once we know on Tuesday night which teams are playing in the In-Season Tournament semifinals on Thursday. I'll update the pickem and put up a new post.

Wouldn't mind seeing LeBron win this thing. The Lakers have already beaten the Suns twice this season.

The explanation of what would happen with the regular season games on the Celtics schedule marked 'TBD' ran about 3 paragraphs. These were marked for December 6 and 8, and are contingent on the In Season Tournament. If the Celtics continue to the final, there are 2 games that will need to be made up. The explanation told me only that I won't have to pay anything extra, and that's all that counts.
