It's been a long road to get here. Stewart, owner of Upper Decker, had never finished higher than 6th in any previous D League year. In a matchup that literally came down to the last game, Stewart was saved by a miraculous performance by Russell Wilson that tied him to The Phuket Rippers going into tonight. Only by an intervention by the Fantasy Gods striking down AJ Green did Upper Decker pass the Rippers to take the Gavel, flying high on the legs of Connor Barth. Stewart does this with the second worst regular season points record in the President's League, almost 300 points less than the Phuket Rippers.
Although the Rippers broke off an incredible streak to get here, it ends in tears for one Cinderella story, and glory for the Upper Decker.
Mike Stewart will be handed the Gavel at the next years draft, will be eligible for his first number 14 Championship Jersey, and will be selecting 3 locations for the next draft voting.
