NBA Survivor Pools
for the
2021-2022 season

You asked for season-long NBA pools, so we made season-long NBA pools! Even better? This year's on us.

For years, our loyal fans have requested that we make regular season pools for the NBA. So, we caved to all that well-meaning pressure and finally did it. We created an NBA Survivor Pool and we didn't just make it great, we made it free for this season as a one-time gift to our fans.

With one stipulation: All you've got to do is create your own NBA survivor pool and invite at least 5 members to it and we'll comp you for our inaugural season of basketball pools.

It's 25 weeks, 30 teams. Can you, or anybody you know, last all the way until the NBA's regular season's ending in April?

Only one way to find out!

Basketball Player

How does the NBA Survivor Pool format work?

  • The name of the game in any Survivor Pool (also known as Eliminator, Suicide, Knockout, Last Man Standing, or King of the Hill pools) is to make it to the next week.
  • Members in your NBA survivor pool will get the chance to select one game of all the games in that given week (unless you, the commissioner, decide you want to dial up the difficulty and to choose multiple games).
  • If members choose the correct winner, they move on to the next week.
  • The last player standing wins.
  • Your pool's pick sheet will become available at the start of each week.

Survivor Pool Options

NBA pool commissioners are provided a number of ways to customize their Survivor Pool, including the options to:

  • Pick winners (Survivor pool) or losers (Loser pool)
  • Allow multiple pick entries per member account or limit members to a single entry
  • Choose the week to start your pool
  • Automatically pick assignments (in the event that members forget to pick)
  • Provide "Mulligan" options for automatic or manual revivals after incorrect picks
  • Include the regular season only or include the playoffs and NBA Finals
  • Allow members to pick an NBA team more than once
  • Customize dashboard messages that your members see upon signing in
  • More ...

How RunYourPool Saves You Time

We make running your own NBA Survivor Pool both hassle-free and mistake-free!

  • Automated pick collections. You no longer have your members send you their picks. They login to the website directly to make their picks.
  • Error-free pick sheet. We make it impossible for your members to make technical errors when submitting picks.
  • Automatic updating. Pool standings are automatically updated in real-time.
  • No more need to distribute standings. Members simply login to the site to see updates.
  • Did we mention it’s free for this season (if you get 5 members)? Because it is.

Brand Your Pool

If you’d like to run an NBA survivor pool as a business promotion, you’re one smart cookie. We’ve accounted for this by allowing you to add your company or organization logo and customize the look of your survivor pool. For more information, see our Brand Your Pool page.

Private Message Boards

What’s a season-long NBA survivor pool without smacktalk? Every NBA survivor pool hosted at includes a free, private message board. Your pool's message board, accessible only to your pool members, is a great way to communicate with members.
