He should send a thank you note to Marcin Gortat. DraftStreet’s $40,000 Big Score tournament was held Tuesday and Wednesday, with a massive amount of prizes for those bold enough to risk a twenty and two singles. Flight 63 won it with a lineup of Gortat, LeBron James, John Wall,

DraftStreet Fantasy Spin, May 13, 2014: Wait a minute … Will Barton?

Click on this banner to sign up for DraftStreet’s two-day NBA playoff fantasy leagues First things first: Someone is going to turn $22 into $10,00o by the end of the night. That is a Donald Sterling-like return on your investment, and it will spur elation that will border on dementia. So good luck to all those who are in the running. IMHO, this contest is going to be won by the person who strikes it rich on one or

And to answer, I will make a vow: If it is me, that 10 grand will be reinvested as a seat in the World Series of Poker. You have my word. This is the best day of the playoffs at DraftStreet, because the $40,000 NBA Big Score is taking place tomorrow for games being

DraftStreet Fantasy Spin, May 10, 2014: The Steven Adams Strategy

money

Click on this banner to sign up for DraftStreet’s two-day NBA playoff fantasy leagues New Zealander center Steven Adams of the Oklahoma City Thunder grabbed nine rebounds in 18 minutes in Game 3 Friday night, looking a lot like a rugby player instead of a basketballer. Fittingly, Adams grew up playing rugby before taking up basketball at age 13. He also blocked two shots, putting together a DraftStreet score of 18.25. As I begin the weekend and devise a

Draft Street Fantasy Spin, May 9; 2014: Hibbert a Popular Guy

Click on this banner to sign up for DraftStreet’s two-day NBA playoff fantasy leagues Can lightning strike twice in the same spot? Folks seem to think so in Draft Street’s two-day fantasy contests, where an astounding 70 out of 100 players selected Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert in the $22 entry fee contest. I was one of them, and my goose is cooked unless Hibbert and fellow starting center Kendrick Perkins both have big games tonight, along with Blake

Click on this banner to sign up for DraftStreet’s two-day NBA playoff fantasy leagues You knew Roy Hibbert was going to bust out at some point. What? You didn’t know that? OK, I guess a bust-out game from an All-Star did not seem to not be within the realm of possibility — even though I kept playing Hibbert from time to time in DraftStreet’s two-night fantasy contests. As I wrote yesterday, I couldn’t help myself. I put Hibbert on one of

Two days into the new week, the profit is at $35. I won $50 for finishing 8th in an $11 entry fee tournament for Monday and Tuesday’s games, along with $10 for finishing 38th with the same lineup in a $2 entry fee contest.

DraftStreet Fantasy Spin, May 6, 2014: Double goose egg for Hibbert

Click on this banner to sign up for DraftStreet’s two-day NBA playoff fantasy leagues Please don’t tell me you got fooled by Roy Hibbert’s Game 7. One of us is enough. Yes, I took the big stiff and put $2 on the possibility that his disappearing act in the first round (along with the final 2 months of the season) was a mirage, and that $2 is now dead money. Hey, it’s only $2. I played three different teams yesterday
