Let's go over how the game is played for the uninitiated and let's review our now glorious history:
As always anyone can join in on the fun at anytime and take their shot at being a winner. There is no long term commitment. Stop in and make a pick for one week, one game, or all season! It doesn’t matter. Every season people play as much as they want.
Last year there was a tight race. We only had 15 weeks due to the lockout and games came fast and furious. Leading all player with 3 victories, our 2012 champion was...
THE J ROCKA
Congratulations! You have joined the other past champions of this storied game. Who will come out on top this year? Will The J Rocka come back and repeat? Will anyone be the first to two championships in this games history or will another new name enter into the pantheon of greatness? Join in and start playing so we can find out.
Some important information for those new to this game.
The Game: Playing the +/- game is simple. You pick any player before the game and you watch them play. Anything that player scores above his average gives you + points. Anything the player scores below his average give you - points. The goal is to have the most + points by the end of the week. Whoever has the most points by the end of the week is the weekly winner.
Example: You pick Nikola Pekovic and he goes off for 30 points. Since Pekovic averages 15 PPG you would get +15 for that night. Conversely if Love played and got 1 point, you would get -14.
Important Rules and Guidelines:
-You can change your pick at anytime before the game*
*(You can not change your player if he is already started playing.)
-Numbers WILL NOT be rounded. If a player is averaging 19.9 PPG it will count as 19.
-If you pick a player and they do not play you get 0 points, you don't lose or gain anything.
-You can pick any number of "insurance" players if you are unsure if your player will play.
-Do not make your picks for the next days games until after the current game is finished.
-The Calrissian rule: This rule states that any player who is coming back from injury or newly signed and has yet to play a game and thus has zero points to their average, cannot be used until they have at least 3 games under their belt.
-You can not request one player for multiple games. Eg: You can't say "Give me Rubio for the week.
After 5 seasons of this game many of you are now hardened vets. Think wisely before you make your picks and consider all factors. You never really know who will go off or who will be cold. What new player will produce? Who will hit that mid-season stride, who will over perform? All important questions to consider but the one that really matters has been the same question from day one, Who ya got!?
