Update on the Lock of The Century 2
Bulls 5-19 through 24 games.
On pace to go 17-65.
Will need to go 23-35 over the final 58 games in order for the lock of the century part 2 to be a winner.
However, earlier in this thread we learned the following :
-the nba is fixed
-healthy Bulls players are sitting out pretending they are hurt
-there is a franchise-wide conspiracy in Chicago to keep bettors of an obscure season win total prop from winning
We will stick with the above bullet point excuses for now, and if the bulls start winning we will switch to the “I told you all it was a lock “
Why are you trying to rub it in implying I was wrong when you clearly know my bet was assuming the team would be healthy. When 4 of your best players are out the first half of the season why would anyone try to make fun of my lock pick if my analysis was related to the team actually being healthy? No one can predict 4 of the best players all going down. It has nothing to do with me being wrong if they dont cover. 4 of their main players have been out.
It has everything to do with you being wrong. Lets face it- you were wrong. Trying to make excuses for your being wrong is the problem, not being wrong. All of us are wrong on occasion, some more often than others but everyone is wrong sometimes. You made a claim and it looks like you were wrong. Embrace it and move on. Men accept their mistakes. Children make excuses. Injuries are part of the game, otherwise we wouldn't need to speculate on how great Bill Walton or David Thompson would have been. You said they would cover. If they don't, you were wrong. No excuses. If you had bet, would you ask for a refund based on unforeseen circumstances? Would you get one?
I wouldnt ask for a refund because a bet is a bet, but that doesnt make me wrong. Yes, inuries are part of the game, but not like this. Maybe its common throughout the season, one or two players go out for a week or so a couple of times throughout the season, but all at different times. But when 4 MAJOR pieces of your team all go down for 3+months at the SAME TIME, that's an anomaly and if you cant see that, you simply have an agenda and just want to make me seem like im wrong like you already have.
You simply cant sit here and say thats 'part of the game'. But i love how you try and make it seem like I was wrong and that its just another common thing that happens and relate it to 'injuries are part of the game'. Yeah go ahead and tell me how many times 4 of your best players go down for 3+ months all at the SAME TIME and then get back to me. This isnt just another 'injuries are part of the game' BS.
So were you wrong or not?
No, regardless if i lose the bet or not. If i win, it has nothing to do with my analysis because it would be lucky to do so. I would never bet if i knew 4 players would go down so you wont see me bragging if they still cover. The same thing if i lose, it had nothing to do with my analysis either as I didnt expect 4 main players to all go down at the same time for 3+ months.

So were you wrong or not?
I have yet to be wrong about one call that I've made on this forum
this is the 2nd LOCK of the century
The pick is to take the Bulls OVER 27.5.
The bulls at 27.5 wins is way undervalued. Take the over. You'll be glad you did.
The bottom line is , you made a bet, it’s goinh to lose
Saying a bet is a lock as long as everything goes perfectly is a contradiction of the term “lock”. Injuries are part of any sports betting analysis. The Bulls have injuries, the teams they’re playing have injuries.
I’ll take a survey of everyone holding a Bulls over 27.5 ticket and see if they’re as thrilled about it as you said they’d be
