2011-2012 NBA Expert Picks Results

"Pro Wrestling," NES

After a season without much rest for the weary, the playoffs are upon us, also without much rest for the weary. But before we talk about the playoffs, we have to recap the regular season picks our experts made back in December, and see how everything shaped up.

Picking the field itself wasn’t much of a challenge, but the precise ordering was more of a challenge. The Spurs caught most panelists off guard and the Lakers a majority, as far as division winners go. The Heat once again failed to live up to expectations of a team that was thought to conquer the league. The Thunder were a great choice out West, though not quite as the #1 most expected. Bonus points for exact seeds weren’t numerous, but were still handed out here and there.

So where does that leave the final standings? Without further ado, the winner of the 2011-2012 NBA Pick ‘Em is…Gianpaolo. Being the only one to pick the Bulls to win the East really helped out, especially with Miami following at #2. The rest of the field was quite crowded, with a three-way tiebreaker and two-way tiebreaker needed.

So there you have it. Be sure to check below for the complete standings and results, and check back Sunday for everyone’s playoff selections.
