Jeff Ma, Blackjack, and ESPN's TrueHoop's Stat Geek Smackdown

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

As you know (assuming you actually read this blog) I'm an NBA fan - and I'm getting ready for the Celtics/Cavs matchup tonight (can't time move any faster?).

Being the prepared armchair coach that I am I like to see who the experts are picking and what they have to say - even though they aren't even close to being right all the time.

So which one of the experts is doing pretty well?

That would be Jeff Ma, aka Kevin Lewis from "21", co-founder of the Citizens Sports Network who is currently holding 3rd place in overall points at ESPN's TrueHoop's Stat Geek Smackdown where he's even ahead of ESPN's resident stat geek John Hollinger (by 1pt - but check the Detroit series).

And he's picking the Celtics in 5.
