* Just three of my prognosticators chose the correct Finals matchup: fellow bloggers Kurt from Forum Blue & Gold, Matt from Bulls Blog, & mainstreamer Kelly Dwyer from the corporate offices of SI.com.

* Only two foresaw Detroit repeating as champions. Unfortunately, of those two, none can finish in the top half. If the Pistons win in 6, Father KnickerBocker takes 9th place.

* Seven bloggers envisioned the Spurs to take the title, but only two have a chance of taking the title. If the Pistons fall in 6, Dwyer can claim half the crown. If not Kevin Broom of RealGM gets to take home the trophy1 all by himself.
