    Okay, we are a little over 2 weeks to go before the tip off to the first regular season game.

    Most people will want to wait until the last minute before making their picks, but I figured I would get this going now for those who dont frequent as often and would like to get it in sooner.

    You have until tip off of the first game of the regular season to make your predictions. I will then keep track throughout the season.

    The winner will win some Blazers Swag.

    We will include a tiebreaker question.
    The tiebreaker question will be:

    How many 3pt shots will Dame Make?
    Last year he made 214, but the year before made 229.

    Get your predictions in before tip off!!!!!!

    49-33

    Dame will make 189 3pt shots. I think with the ball going into Nurks' hands more, Dame will not be forced to shoot so many long bombs and will have more cutting opportunities to slash to the basket more often, resulting in less 3pt attempts and makes. I also think his 3's will be less contested and he will shot the best percentage thus far in his career.

    Wow. That was mean- spirited. Did HCP accept your plea to be your teacher in trolling?

    Ha!!! I have him spinning in circles completely confused by me, lol. I think i'm teaching him a thing or two about just how hard core one can troll, lol.
    But actually it was Sly who was teaching me the ways of trollmastery. I let him down though. He cut me loose to live like a mutt in the alleys instead of a life of grandiose mutt-trollary of the masses.
    I dont recommend him as a master to anyone. He will leave you to starve the moment you show weakness.

    Sly is still a Troll Master you just weren't worthy of being his apprentice and learning his teachings.

    You can Fed Ex one of those signed Blazers team shirts from Media Day to my house @SlyPokerDog . I've earned it.

    I'll go with an even 50 wins. So, 50-32.
    @HCP can give me shit all he wants, but until the season starts I'm a big fat hairy Homer.

    Dame will hit 231 3 pointers.
    Nurk will win MIP.

    So I take it you think the Blazers are a top 4 team in the west then? I'll say 44 wins.

    I'm being optimistic. Using more reason and logic I would put us fighting for the 6th through 8th seeds.
