Welcome to all readers young and old, new and tenured, lurking and commenting!

This will mark GBB's 3rd season of hosting the Grind Prophecies competition that was started by Mr. Ryan Hoover back in 2013. For those of you who are unfamiliar with our sacred tradition, I present to you ... the official rules.

Grind Prophecies Rules November 2014

But honestly, that's our legal form that's extremely tedious and painfully boring. So here's my abridged version:

  • The Grind Prophecies are a monthly contest, in this case it also includes the two games from October 29th and 31st and ends on the final game of the month on November 30th.
  • The goal is to earn points every game (contest) and to have the most at the end of the month.
  • Points are earned by participating in the contest post I'll publish for each game. You'll guess or answer (4) questions pertaining to the outcome of the game with an optional fifth question in which points are wagered.
  • You MUST submit your answers PRIOR to tipoff in each game. Late answers are thrown out.
  • The final two game submissions will be emailed directly to me so that the leading scorers can't play it safe and base their answers off of those who are closest in score.
  • The first place prize is a replica Memphis Grizzlies jersey of your choice! ($100 value!)
  • Second and third place prizes will also be awarded this year! They'll be some form of Grizzlies merchandise valued around $30 and $20, respectively.
  • Anyone is welcome to play, but prize winners must be 18 years of age and live in the USA or Canada (excluding Quebec), but if you have a US address we can work something out.

  • Questions 1 & 2 will always be the same. Questions 3-5 will always be changing up.
