2014 DFBC Finalist: Harsh Criticism Drives Lateshow to Victory

Lateshow is a man of many talents. Not only is he a closet Missy Elliot fan, but he’s one heck of a fantasy baseball player. So good, in fact, that he qualified for the ultimate Vegas weekend and a ticket into this year’s $3,000,000 DFBC. We sat down with the man to discuss the night of his Qualifier win, his wife’s classic reaction, and his plans for the $1,000,000 top prize should he emerge victorious.

How long have you been playing fantasy sports/baseball?

I vaguely remember breaking my pencil while making a blockbuster deal involving Dante Bichette. 

 

In your opinion, how does daily fantasy compare to season-long?

 I think season-long players that have had success will have no problem transitioning to these new daily leagues they keep hearing about on FanDuel

 

How would you describe your overall approach to drafting?

I put my thing down, flip it, and reverse it.

 

Describe the night of your DFBC Qualifier win.

The person who was in second place sent me a message around 10:00p.m.  He said he already knew I was going to win, and that he was just going to bed because he is old and still recovering from a fall he took while trying to climb onstage to get his picture taken with DJ D-Wreck from the hit MTV show Wild N’ Out.  

 

Then after extra innings on the west coast that kept the contest alive into the wee hours of the morning, I emerged victorious. I climbed into bed and tried to wake my wife up.  She was pissed that I woke her and told me “You didn’t win anything yet”.

What are you looking forward to the most about Vegas?

Free breakfast and hanging out with my internet friends.

 

What would you do with the $1,000,000 if you did win?
