The Prediction Contest is back for the fourth straight year.  Think you have what it takes to take the crown of Nostradumbass from Slam_Dunk?  Get your prognostication caps on and join us before every game (and certain special occasions) to make your predictions.  At the end of the year we'll tally our scores and appoint a new Nostradumbass of the Year.

As always, we start each year with a prediction kickoff of the upcoming season.  On to the questions:

1. What will be the Kings record this year? (5 points for a correct guess)

2. Who will score the most points in a single game for Sacramento and how many points will that be? (2 points for guessing the correct player, 5 points for guessing the correct point total and player)

3. Who will tally the most assists in a single game for Sacramento and how many assists will that be? (2 points for guessing the correct player, 5 points for guessing the correct assist total and player)

4. Who will grab the most rebounds in a single-game for Sacramento and how many rebounds will that be? (2 points for guessing the correct player, 5 points for guessing the correct rebound total and player)

8. How many games will the Kings have 25 or more assists? (5 points for guessing the correct total)

9. What opposing player will score the most points in a single game against Sacramento? (5 points for the correct player, 10 points for the player and the total)

10. What will be the average attendance at Sacramento Kings games this year? (2 points for the nearest hundred, 5 points for the nearest ten, 10 points for guessing exactly)

¡¡¡BONUS POTENTIAL PLAYOFF QUESTIONS!!!
