As of Tuesday this week, the National Football League began its new league year and, with it, offseason free agency began. A flurry of moves have already happened and the free agent frenzy is only beginning. An unfortunate side effect of free agency is seeing beloved players get cut—especially when it is unexpected and seemingly unwarranted. As popular as the NFL is, its reach goes well beyond everyday people—fans and media alike. Many celebrities, including All-Star NBA athletes are included among NFL
Over 2,000 entries fought it out for a top prize of $10,000 in the Wednesday 50K yesterday. “Marblesnap” finished with 270.0 DraftStreet points to triumph, only a half point better than “scoobylov3r”. Your humble scribbler had two entries, one of which finished tied for 37th place. If you missed out on some of the best value anywhere in daily fantasy, you have another chance next week. If $10,000 isn’t quite enough to whet your appetite, how about $50,000? The winner
First, the good news. Among rookies, the top four scorers behind Philadelphia’s Michael Carter-Williams all got a recent chance to pad their stats against the sickening 76ers. Now, the bad news. Only one gets another chance this season. In case you haven’t noticed, the Sixers have lost 18 straight games. The last time they won, Time Warner and Comcast hadn’t announced their merger, the Super Bowl hadn’t been played and the greatest single-take shot in television history hadn’t yet aired.
After March 1st had passed, most fans assumed there were no difference makers left to help NBA playoff teams. Those who follow the D-League would beg to differ.
Wednesday, March 12 was a day of significant proportions for the NBA. A legendary player moved into 12th on the all-time scoring list, a preseason title contender continued to display signs of life and a new chapter was written in a budding rivalry. Here’s everything that you ned to know about last night’s action.
It’s the time of year when everything is coming into focus. The big powers in the West are jockeying for the inside track to get to face the Heat in the Finals, and everyone else is trying to align their stars to attract the big free agent prize. This year, it’s Carmelo Anthony, and the Knicks desperately want to keep him, but the Lakers also want to team him with Kobe Bryant, and don’t rule out the Bulls, with a
Father time gets the better of everyone from time to time. Just this afternoon, I played pickup ball at the local gym and he gave me the business; knees sore, hip sore, back sore, muscles fatigued…and I am no elite athlete. Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant, however, is. But, like myself and many other individuals in this world—All-Star athlete or not, time and injury often prevent us from doing what we love most. For me, I love art—whether drawing or writing—as
Another Wednesday, another shot at chance at $10,000 in the 50K . Registration is open and the contest is a little over half full, so overlay is a distinct possibility. If $10,000 isn’t quite enough, how about $50,000? The winner of the DraftStreet NBA Big Score will win $50,000 out of a total prize pool of $150,000, with the top 400 finishers winning at least $100. All it takes to enter is a DraftStreet account and $55. If you
