Exclusivity. Makes you feel special, empowered, embrazened. Embatlled, embaweome, Embiid-ish.
Yes, you’ve read that right, DraftKings – Razzball’s daily fantasy site of choice – has thrown us our first RAZZBALL EXCLUSIVE NBA CONTEST for tonight, which you can only join through that All Caps link. Yes, it may look like I’m yelling at you, but I’m pumped! You can’t enter through the main DraftKings lobby or from a URL scribbled down on a napkin by your lunch waitress, only that link right there will guide you into our VIP area.
And by exclusive, we mean exclusive. Only 20 spots will be open to readers, and well, it’s only 18 since Slim and I are in there. So you’ve gotta sign up quick, no dilly dallying! The entry fee is $10, with first place taking home a hunnet! $100 for first, $50 for second, and $25 for 3rd and 4th place. Using my Mickey Math (yes I had one of those as a kid!), you can add those up to get the full $200, so DraftKings is not taking any profit. Just giving us our own contest for our own bragging rights.
If you’re new to daily fantasy, it’s an exponentially growing segment of the fantasy industry, and unlike failing the Marshmallow Test, you can get immediate gratification without feeling bad about it. No more waiting the whole season before knowing if indeed JB BEATS SLIM!!!!, but I’ll know right away if I spanked his beard right off him. I’m “jbrazzball” for your tracking enjoyment through the contest, and let’s get it filled up fast so maybe they’ll give widen us up for a few more spots!
Scoring for DraftKings is similar to a points league, and you can find the breakdown here if you’ve never played daily fantasy or haven’t played on DraftKings yet.
Here’s five of my picks for tonight in a big slate of games, so choose wisely and may the best daily fantasy-ite win:Please, blog, may I have some more?
