Community Predictions

It’s time for our annual Western Conference Prediction contest!

Use this comment thread to share what spot (1-15) you think each WC team will finish the regular season. Lists will be scored at semi-regular intervals by figuring the sum of all the differences between the spots you predict for each team and each team’s actual current standing. Of course, lower scores are ranked higher. (More scoring details and info about tie-breakers to come.) We play, as always, for bragging rights.

Standings updates:

  • Your total is the sum of all the differences between what you predicted for each team and the team’s actual current standing.
  • Scores are ranked from lowest total to highest.
  • The numbers in parentheses reflect the color-coding . . . the number of greens (exact), yellows (off by 1 or 2), sunsets (off by 3 or 4), and reds (off by 5 or more).
  • The tie-breaking is fine-tuned a bit more beyond the simple color coding. After looking at total, ties are broken by number of exacts, then number off by 1, then number off by 2, and so forth.
