First game - Some call it Karma

Some call it Karma. (See the bottom of this post for the prediction game. Prediction game points will be used for your player. I am taking applications for the 2013 draft. See link on the right for more information)

The season opener looked like it was going to be a nail biter. It took both teams a while to get going. After the first quarter the score was tied at 10. During the second quarter the Bobcats held their own and had a 20-16 lead with 1:50 left in the quarter. It was downhill from there. The Magic went on a 9-0 run to finish the quarter. It would have been worse except for some good defense. The Bobcats tried to push the ball up the court and had it picked off three times. The bobcats had some good defense around the rim and blocked some shots. But, that did not help when the bobcats turned it over and then promptly fouled the other team.
The second half was a complete route as the Magic came out of the locker room smelling blood. They went on a 37-21 run to finish the game. The Bobcats kept leaving Jason Richardson wide open behind the three point line.

Participation points

 c. submit via message to me, a player story during scouting or during season and if I post it = 30 points.

Win points lottery. 10 Lottery points will be put into the pot when nobody guesses a correct answer.

Ways to lose points (you will not lose skills by my command)
1. Inactivity over a 30 game period = -30 points
2. Attempt to post smack without kosher language/subject (ie. no slurs or "F" words) or being trollish = -10 points
3. 20 game prediction losing streak without any points = -20 points

Everyone will start out with a 45 OVR prospect. Get a bunch of points and you might become a 70 OVR prospect.
