In Game 3, the hot picks are Tony Parker and Tim Duncan with almost half of the gamer base having either in their lineup, mainly because of the "rule" that players generally ball well at home. By breaking that rule and picking Chris Bosh, one gives himself a chance to catch a player's better performance on a time when nobody else did. That was the pick I was leaning on for Game 3 even before the Finals began anyway.
Gamers tend to follow the cold pick strategy tightly, that soon it too becomes a... rule.
Second, Break The Rules That Broke The Rules. No, that is not a book yet, but I am sure that breaking the rules beget breaking everything eventually. It's a vicious cycle. In Game 3, I really strongly feel that the Spurs, Parker and Duncan will bounce back. But, half of the fantasy gamers are getting in my way of picking them. Well, not anymore. I am breaking away from the cold pick strategy for Game 3. Tim Duncan gets my pick.
Don't get me started on rules-are-meant-to-be-broken thing. They're not "meant" to be broken. They're just simply being broken.
(Btw, Dwyane Wade may have injured his left knee. The right knee was the one already hurt before. If he continues to dip in minutes, Manu Ginobili may be a nice pick.)
