    So ESPN did this awesome thing years ago, and I don't think they do it anymore. So I want to revive it, and bring in a beer gambling element of course...

    Rules:

    For each round of the playoffs you will select 5 players. Using either Fan Duel or Draft Kings scoring, you will accumulate points. Most points at the end of the playoffs wins.

    Easy right?

    Here is the twist.

    Once you select a player, he is eliminated from your pool for the remainder of the playoffs.

    Entry Requirements:
    - 44 oz of good beer. We know what is good.
    - Beer must be shipped by last game of NBA Finals +3 weeks.

    This is going to be a good amount of work to track/record for me, so I am hoping to get a minimum of 15 entries. Payouts will be decided based upon interest.

    If you want in, please respond to this thread and send me a PM with your shipping info.

    One last desperate plea to garner interest in this so I can continue my life of obsessive fantasy basketball participation and beer related gambling for the next few months.

    ABSTRACTlegend can you confirm?

    So my initial goal of 15 is clearly a bit fool hardy.

    Assuming ABSTRACTlegend is in, we would have the following

    Me
    pdurrrr
    johnyb
    BrandoSF
    ABSTRACTlegend

    5 total

    With Playoffs starting Saturday, I still think this would be fun/interesting to do. If people are good with winner take all, I say we go ahead. If we get more people than maybe we split the pool.

    Sound like a plan?

    Still need more people? For only 44oz (hah yeah right) I could do this one and would make me pay more attention to the playoffs.

    Alright Gentleman, not everyone sent me an email address, but this should work.

    With seedings being finalized tonight, please submit your first round choices by the noon on Friday. Use the link below to access the Google Form. If you have problems, please let me know.

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1NdAh16RzuJsVsg2PUcJU-t6UMwh1kAWaLAGArle2WRs/edit

    I will share the tracking sheets sometime Friday Night/Saturday morning.

    Last minute tips/reminders
    - We will use Draft Kings Scorings. I like rewarding Double/Triple Doubles.
    - Remember you only get to pick a player 1 time for the playoffs. If you pick LeBron Round 1, he is ineligible for your team the rest of the way.
    - Whether a series goes 4 or 7 games, you will get points for every game they play.

    Thought for next year:

    Could make it slightly more exciting/cut throat if the bottom 1-2 participants are eliminated each round? And also results in less recordkeeping as it goes on.

    just pdurrrr ponderings
