Our contest participants continued their improved performance with their Conference Finals selections (and we’ll have more on that at the end of the playoffs). How will they fare in the NBA Finals? In graphical form, here are the entries for the fourth and final round of the Wages of Wins NBA Playoffs contest:
There was an almost 60-40 split for this series, with participants favouring the home team, the Miami Heat. The most selected option was Miami in 6 (32%), followed by San Antonio in 6 (28%) and Miami in 7 (18%).

Can the Heat regain homecourt advantage and make us look good? We’ll know the answer in less than two weeks!
Reminder: once the Finals are over, not only will we review how all of our participants fared throughout the contest, we’ll also be crowning our own Wages of Wins playoffs contest Champion. Stay tuned!
