We Win... Kind Of

Just a few days after declaring that the Lakers would win the NBA Finals, we had a Free NBA Pick proclaming the Magic as the likely Game 5 winner.

The bad news for us is that the Lakers won it in five. The good news is that we can still claim that we were right about the final outcome!

Unfortunately, the Lakers beat the Magic 99-86, giving our Free NBA Picks their first loss in the post season. The Free NBA Picks finish the playoffs with a 5-1 record, and a 13-6 (68%) mark in 2009.

It was a good season for our Free NBA Picks, few and far between as they might have been down the stretch, but there was clearly a method to our madness.
