May 17th. That’s the day we ran the contest. The premise was simple- name the starting five for the Cavaliers on opening night. Sounds easy right?
Well, we know what happened at the SF position. And we know about the 2 centers that jumped ship. Even heading into training camp, with most of the roster decided we weren’t real sure about who would start that night. In fact, if you remember there was some question even the day of whether Jamison or Hickson would be the starter at PF. It turns out that was an important decision in our contest. It made the winner a clear-cut decision.
Octavio, comment number 50 predicted the following five starters-
Daniel Gibson, Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon, JJ Hickson and Anderson Varejao. He also predicted 92 points scored for the Cavaliers.
The actual line-up for the opener against the Celtics-
Ramon Sessions, Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon, JJ Hickson and Anderson Varejao. The Cavs won the game, scoring 95 points.
Well played Octavio. He wins a pair of tickets to an upcoming Cavs game. Congratulations, a well deserved victory!
