SLAMonline x Draftstreet Free $250 Fantasy Basketball Challenge


Season-long fantasy leagues are a grind, so Draftstreet.com has introduced the one-night fantasy basketball league challenge, and is giving away $250 in free prizes exclusively to SLAMonline readers who can build the best team of NBA players based on salary cap restrictions. The one-night contest will go down on Friday night—so here’s your chance to prove to the world you can build a contender. The contest is free to enter, and multiple winners will take home cash, so check out some of the other details and sign up today!

This free contest will be salary-cap style drafting where everyone tries to assemble the best team out of the available players. You will have a $100,000 budget to build a team of 2 forwards, 2 guards, 2 centers, and 2 utility players. Each NBA player has been assigned a price based on their expected fantasy performance—you’ll have to use your GM skills, since you won’t be able to afford an All-Star team. You can adjust your roster up until the contest starts on Friday January 13th at 7:00pm ET at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.

Remember, this freeroll is exclusive to SLAMonline, so not only do your chances of winning go up, but you’ll have the chance to compete against the rest of the SLAM family (maybe even some of our editors and writers), head-to-head. Click here to enter the freeroll!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Double J

    Can someone explain the scoring process?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    that is some bullsh*t. Y’all should put an asterisk next to the winners name.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Larry, let me use your address and we’ll split my prizes. lol

  • http://www.draftstreet.com Larry Axelband

    For the scoring process, if you guys go to draftstreet.com and then go to the “Rules” tab, you will see the scoring under “Rosters and Scoring Formats”.

  • http://www.slamonline.com megatron

    nbk, why not just put a relative or friends address?

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    This contest is a great idea.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Almost everyone I am close enough too for stuff like that lives in Phoenix. I aint ever lived anywhere else, and have lost touch with a lot of people cuz I am not on Facebook and sh*t like that anymore. I mean I got family in Seattle, but he works for Microsoft and is always traveling, getting ahold of him is a pain in the ass as it is. Asking him to accept some mail for me would be a huge inconvenience.

    NBK you’re just convinced that you would win this thing huh?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    I’m convinced I would win anything NBA related. It’s kinda just how I am though. Not trying to disrespect anyone.

  • http://www.twitter.com_dfrance dfrance21

    Not disrespectful at all. taken. I just found it funny you’re all like “asking my family to collect my winnings would be an inconvenience.” lol.
