2009-2010 NBA Expert Picks: Results

Lebron James and Kobe Bryant were once more the top superstars. They aim to face off four to seven more times before the season is through. (

The season is now over, and there have been plenty of dark horses that have made quite an impact. Oklahoma’s in for the first time as the Thunder, Milwaukee and Charlotte are in, not to mention the #3 Suns. On the other side of that coin, who could have foreseen the Spurs’ poor season? For that matter, the Celtics have struggled a lot more than people though they would; at least they’re in a weak conference and division.

Prediction-wise, the three East division winners were all picked successfully, while the West was harder to pick. I was the only one to pick all three correctly, being the only one to pick the Mavericks as division winners. But I was also the only one to not pick the Heat to make the post-season, so karma is alive and well. I was also the only one with three correct seed picks in one conference.

Despite all that, I only finished 6th in the standings; I was agonizing over whether to put the Cavaliers or Magic first. Oh well. Thanks to a strong finish by divisional picks, the winner is … Brian. Brian correctly picked both top seeds, as well as a middle seed to put the icing on the cake. Kudos, Brian. Be sure to check below to see how everyone finished, and how their picks turned out:
