Sneaker News Fantasy Basketball: Week 8 Recap
At a quick glance, the Team SneakerNews fantasy basketball squad doesn’t look all that imposing. There are not many sexy names or perennial NBA All-Stars, but in fantasy just as it is in reality, sometimes a team with a star or two surrounded by the right role players can be far more more deadly than a collection of big names. Eight weeks in and Team SN is now off to a 7-0-1 start in the FLuD Watches “Barksdale & Bell” fantasy basketball league. We don’t always win big and we don’t always win pretty, but we have the balance to take you out in any category in any given week. Last week, Karmaloop was the victim of a 6-3 SN win and now, we turn our attention to the Week 9 matchup with the basketball minds over at SLAM. Check out some pics of the current roster and stay tuned for more updates as we look to continue on our winning ways this week.
