Move over, Christmas. No offense, but we think it’s suffice to say the NBA Playoffs are, in fact, the most wonderful time of the year. With the first round almost finished (we see you, Denver and Memphis), the postseason will soon evolve from a dogfight into an all-out war. Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Paul Pierce, Tim Duncan and plenty others are all dialed in and ready to win it, but as we know, only one team will emerge. Twelve more wins, fellas, 12 more wins. Word to LeBron’s mouthpiece.
Today, in the spirit (and craze) of the most wonderful time of the year, we are giving away two fresh, stylish, extra-dope SLAM snap-back hats (pictured above).
To win, make a bold Playoff prediction by dropping a comment on this post (please provide your real email address, so we can contact you if you’re the winner) and presenting a plausible argument for your prediction. You can predict a series upset, an unexpected team making a deep run, an unexpected player that’ll catch fire, or anything absolutely crazy (as long as you back it up). For example, you could explain why Chris Bosh will win Finals MVP. Or you could explain why Corey Brewer and Ty Lawson will lead the Nuggets on an improbable run to the Western Conference Finals, only to lose in Game 7 on a Matt Bonner four-point play. Or you could explain why the Clippers will be on the brink of elimination in the WCF, fire Vinny Del Negro mid-game, promote Chauncey Billups to head coach, then go ahead and win the ‘Chip.
Get your Nostradamus on, and if we like your random hunch, we’ll hit you with a fresh snap-back. It’s that simple.
The winners will be selected this Monday and contacted later next week. Good luck!
