We are just days away from the start of the 2012 NBA playoffs which should be excellent once again. Absolutely my favorite sports time of year. As mentioned, Hoops Hobby will be hosting an NBA Playoff Survivor pick’em. Each day of the playoffs, Hoops Hobby will post the games for the day. Each contestant should respond with a comment containing their pick for the day. Pick any team playing that day. If they win, you move on to pick another day. No limits on how many times you can pick a team. If you want to pick the Bulls every time they play, for example, go for it. Last contestant alive wins a card of their choice from the prize list below. Additional prizes will likely be added to this list. Once we have one winner we will start up again for as many rounds as we can throughout the playoffs.
The prizes are as follows:
1999-00 Stadium Club Chrome Eyes of the Game Refractors #EG8 Allen Iverson
2005-06 Topps #224 Chris Paul RC
2006-07 Bowman Elevation Power Brokers Relics Blue #RCB Chris Bosh

Spread the word- this will be fun. First post will go up when playoff pairings and times are announced.
Once the playoffs begin, Hoops Hobby will hold a survivor pick’em contest on the blog. Each day of the playoffs, participants must pick a winner of a game. One wrong pick means elimination. The last contestant remaining will not only earn the title of ‘Hoops Hobby Survivor Champion’, but a prize as well. More details to come- stay tuned!
