Random Stuff

Next game is potentially the last game of the series, and in the Drive To The Finals everyone is forced to put their best remaining player forward to get that last bit of PRA.

For a few at the top of the standings, it's a battle of Chalmers versus Barea to get that Autotrader prize. BTW, I am rooting for Shanks014 who turned out to be my kababayan (fellow countrymen). Go Shanks, proudly Pinoy!

For the rest of us, it's about getting that sprint towards the finish line just to see how we can fare against the others.

For some of the leagues, it's about getting to page 1 of that league. In one league, a father and son duo accepted my challenge for a race, and they have constantly had me eating their dust. I just need 3 more PRA as I pit whoever I pick against their Bibby, Haslem or Miller. Whatever happens, it's been fun trying to catch them.

For Mavs fans in DTTF (go Mavs!), it's about feeling good about picking a Mav in Game 6 or feeling antsy about picking a Heat (so anti-climactic).

For Heat fans in DTTF, it's about being forced to pick their best player (most probably one of the Big 3) even as they continue to hope the series won't end for them abruptly.

For me, it's about getting as high as I can to set a bar to beat for next year's DTTF.

Here are the PRA power rankings for your reference, pick the best player available to you..

Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Jason Terry, Jason Kidd, Tyson Chandler, Shawn Marion, JJ Barea, Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, Mike Miller, Mike Bibby, DeShawn Stevenson, and the rest.

There are 2600+ drivers picking from the Big Three and 400+ for Dirk. Good for them to have that player saved for this game. Picking Chalmers next.

  1. Okay, so your from the Philippines, cool. I myself am from Iceland, this is truly a global blog.

    Got Wade for game 6 and for some reason im leaning towards Haslem instead of Barea if there will be a game 7.

  2. I still have LeBron left, but I am picking Chalmers for game 6 and saving LBJ for game 7. Why?

    Well, I think Miami is going to wing game 6, they can only win if Chalmers contributes and then I´ll have James for the biggest game of the season.

    On the other hand I´m from Germany, so I´m rooting for the Mavs to win. I would gladly miss out on LBJ because that would mean there is no game 7. Right now I really really hope the Mavs can close it out as soon as possible. If that means no LBJ in DTTF for me, then so be it.

    I´ll take one for the team.

    Go Mavs!

  3. A big shout out to our drivers from Iceland and Germany!

    @Rebound, I am blogging from Australia, too. So yeah, got all four corners covered. Good of you having Wade in Game 6. I wonder how long have you endured temptation to pick him early :) Gangi þér vel!

    @Alex, Ich liebe deine Kampfgeist. Let's keep believing. Go Dirk!

    Toi, toi, toi!

  5. tao- Congrats to the Mavs! And to you for winning our league. I was a little surprised that the Heat didn't foul more in the final 90 seconds.
