A couple days ago I made a post starting a draft pick prediction contest. The draft has since concluded and I sorted through all the entries, so here are the results.
The correct answers were MarShon Brooks, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Jordan Williams, even though Brooks and Bogdanovic weren't actually selected by the Nets.
Incredibly, none of us guessed Jordan Williams, out of the 26 entries that were put in. (Not counting the people who said "no one", thus going against the purpose of the contest)
Only one person, Andres B, guessed Bojan Bogdanovic as one of the Nets picks, so congrats to him.
Many more people picked MarShon Brooks, including netsareboss, dwill8, Nets 12-70, BigTom, mikequick23, and KingofDenial.
So all of these people are tied with one correct pick. The tiebreaker was what overall pick Josh Selby would be selected with. Everyone was way off with their answers, because Selby dropped much farther than anticipated. He was eventually selected #49 to the Grizzlies.
The closest person to his pick was smp369, who predicted pick 41, which was still eight picks off. Unfortunately for him, though, he didn't get any picks right.
Of the people who got one correct answer, Nets 12-70 was the closest with a prediction of pick 32, 17 picks off but close enough to win!! Congrats to Nets 12-70 for being the first winner of the NetsDaily Draft Pick Prediction Contest!!
Hopefully I'll be back next year with another contest, and hopefully more people take part. Thanks.
Again, hat tip to thejetsblog.com for the idea.
