Contest! Predict the Christmas schedule and win

We will likely have the NBA’s 2021-22 schedule in our hands by week’s end (or next week at the latest).

As I reported Saturday in the enclosed tweet, we are closing in on the league’s annual schedule release now that most offseason business is behind us.

So …

Let’s open the floor for schedule prognostications. If you can successfully predict all five Christmas Day matchups by Tuesday at noon ET — and if you have signed up for our mailing list in advance and adhere to the rest of the rules — you’ll receive a one-year membership to this Substack.

Those rules:

  • You must, again, be signed up for our free newsletter to participate. You can do so here if you’re not already on the mailing list:

  • You must clearly make your five matchup picks (Bucks vs. Suns, etc.) in the discussion thread below by the deadline or before comments are disabled — whichever comes first. I will disable the comments if most or all of the full five-game slate is reported by trusted news outlets or officially announced by ESPN before Tuesday’s buzzer.

  • Only one prediction per user is allowed. Submitting more than one prediction results in automatic disqualification from the contest.
