No, this isn’t a joke … although, with the season going the way it is, you’d think it might be.

But really, what’s the harm in Flip Saunders & Co. using one play selected from a pool of civilian submissions. At this point, it can’t hurt. Right?

The details of the contest, via ESPN, are below … and more can be found by following the link at the bottom. (However, this will take you to an ESPN Insider page, so you might need an account).

The contest says it will be an inbounds play, but doesn’t really indicate if the play will be an ‘Out-Under’ (an inbounds play from the baseline under the basket) or a ‘Side-Out’ (an inbounds play from the sideline), so I guess you’ll have to use whichever one floats your boat.

They will start accepting entries after 5:00PM EST today, December 16th, and all entries are due by 5:00PM EST on Wednesday December 23rd.

So, uhhh … Good luck!
