NBA Playoffs: Series Calls in Review

For those of you keeping score at home … there are any number of pseudo ‘NBA Experts’ in the blogosphere today but … as far as I know … none of these forecasted correctly 12 of 13 ‘Series Calls’ (92.3%) during the 2007-2008 NBA Playoffs.

When it comes to ascertaining which so-called ‘experts’ have an accurate understanding of the NBA (or not), as the old saying goes,

“The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

    LOL, I thought you meant “bad ref calls” during the playoffs. I wonder what the count would be on that?

    What qualifies as a “bad ref call” during an NBA game … might actually be “One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the Ancient World.”
