    Just pick the opposite of Demographic Shift
    The world needs seat of the pants iconoclasts on the weighty topics of the day.
    Such as the WNBA draft.
    Synchronized Swimming fantasy rankings.
    and
    The NBA play in tournament.

    Tonight is the first leg of the west play in tourney.

    The PlanetMars and KeonClark school of handicapping has proven to be like chalk and bears a remarkable resemblance to F1.
    Once the qualifiers are done and the starting grid is set there is no passing..

    Howerer !!!

    Undaunted here are the picks for the west.

    Spurs over The Grizz in a battle of former Raptor favourites facing off. The Spurs have moxie. They have Pop. They also have experience. The Grizz are knocking on the door out west for the second year in a row now and posses an uber talented PG in Morant and a Jamal Murray clone in Dillon Brooks. They have old friend JV to get points down low when they need them. But the primary ballhandlers and scoreres on the Grizz don't have experience in a playoff game where the rules simply change and what was foul is no longer a foul.

    Warriors over Lakers. Curry is having an MVP year and has been putting up 30 burgers all year long. Draymond Green everyones favourite loose cannon is relatively healthy and will be focused on Lebron all night long. Keyvon Loney is a B lister when we think about defensive C's but he is quicker than most and will draw Anthony Davis as his raison d'etre tonight.
    Lebron is a little knicked up and Davis the same. The Lakers supporting cast is pretty average.
    Curry goes nuclear tonight and Draymond finds it in himself to channel his inner Lance Stevenson on Lebron and does enough to annoy and harrass and check Lebron that Currys explosion beyond the arc carries the day..

    WHICH SETS UP THE

    Demar Derozan Revenge Game. The Lakers bench is exposed. Jacob Poeltl holds his own against Davis and Demar finally wins one against Lebron in a mamoth upset. yeah.. thats the ticket. .

    Whiz beat Chowders Jayson Tatum without Jaylen Brown is empty calories. Lots of points but in losing games. Kemba is hurt. Again. Marcus Smart is "who we thought the was" . The Russell Westbrook traveling salvation show moves into 7th.

    Hornbobnetcats whup Indy Indy for whatever reason is going through the motions. Its generally an indicator light that a coach is about to be whacked. The gap between expectations as the season started and where they are now is pretty wide. They have good players. Sabonis and Turner in the middle. Brogdon running the point or playing off ball and Caris Levert is the scoring wing. Yet here they are scuffling along in the 9 hole. Welcome back to Trawna Nate. The Hornets want to, (unlike Indy) want to fight another day. And why not.. every passing day gets Gordon Hayward closer to return and this is a young team with an actual likable pretty much here star in LaMello Ball. They gonna whup Indy.

    AND SET UP

    The Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward Revenge Game Yep... chisel another commandment on the stones. After trading both Rozier and having Hayward walk away they both play the games of their careers and send the Chowders not only to the lottery but back to the chalkboard to figure out what to do as well ? Tear all of it down and start over or tear some of it down and start over around the wrong player. Fuck Boston.
    I really wanted to see the Terry Rozier and Gordie Hayward revenge game.

    0-1 and going for 0-2 so far. Glad I put no bets on these games.

    I forgot to say it but pacers for sure were my bet and I think between Memphis and spurs its tough but I WANT Memphis. I think Lakers lose the first one.

    Alot of teams would be better off losing these. That's the problem with the play in games. Unless you're small market and really need the revenue, or you're a unique situation like the LA lebrons, I think I'd prefer the lotto to the 8th seed
    I thought it made sense last year when you had teams that could be prejudiced by the scheduling. Don't like it otherwise. Too many perverse incentives for a league already suffering from 1/3 of teams tanking each year (not to mention all the players 'resting'), plus, you have the possibility for some absurd results, which they've luckily dodged so far (some team in 10th 8 or 9 games back beating out an 8th seed).

    Then, as you mention, all of these teams are getting smoked anyway, so there's very little upside. Something like this would work better in a sport with more parity like the NHL but we really don't need more games of any of this stuff.

    Yeah.. would be pretty funny (but mostly sad) to see Boston lose the play-in and then win the lottery as the 14th team. #Tanking

    The Celtics can't afford to get that cute, plus, this isn't the Celtics team that beat Philly last season. They might lose to WSH but it won't be on purpose....
    Nobody loses on purpose (unless your LAC I guess to avoid LAL). I just said this in jest. They have no chance without Brown anyway.. and they've been mediocre all year, but still have a dominant player on their roster. That guy killed us last year.

    Would make sense for Boston to lose on purpose, and then win against Indiana/Charlotte as the 8th seed. Boston can get into Philly's head (they've swept them I think twice now). I think the Nets are too dangerous.
