A common cliché often used in the game of basketball is that you can’t win a championship in January. It was used especially often last night as the Oklahoma City Thunder topped the two-time defending world champion Miami HEAT in convincing fashion.
That cliché is very true, last night’s win will be meaningless come playoff time, but it does not apply to fantasy hoops at DraftStreet. Because there, a win in January can have you feeling like you just won the championship. Like in the case of Gator2291, who is now $1,000 richer because he invested $2 last night and drafted the top scoring team in the league.
If you didn’t finish in the top 250 last night or just simply didn’t have the chance to draft a team, worry not, there’s another chance today! DraftStreet is offering another $2, one day league. The top 200 finishing teams will be rewarded $4,000 in prizes, with first place bringing in $800!
