Good old George Karl is even curious as to whom everyone is picking as he peers up to the jumbotron for all the blogger and expert picks.

Nuggets Bloggers:

  • You know I have Denver in 6.
  • Andrew at Denver Stiffs, in the spirit of the summer, has broken out the flip-flops by first taking the Lakers in 7, then re-reviewing himself and taking Denver in 6.
    Jeremy at Roundball Mining Company thinks, "This is going to be an uphill battle and there are plenty of reasons to be concerned, but not all uphill battles are lost." Though he takes the Lakers in 7.
    Nick the Nugg Doctor has written his prescription and says Nuggets in 7.

Johnny at Nuggets' Nuggetz also is taking the Nuggets in 6.
