SLAMonline x Draftstreet’s Free $250 Fantasy Basketball Challenge Starts Tonight

We told you about Draftstreet.com‘s one-night fantasy basketball league challenge, giving away $250 in free prizes exclusively to SLAMonline readers. The one-night contest will go down on tonight—so be sure to set your lineup and submit before tonight’s games begin at 7 p.m. The contest is free to enter, and multiple winners will take home cash, so remember the details, below, and enter now:

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 February 10 at 7:00pm ET at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.

Click here to enter the freeroll!

In the January edition of this challenge, you guys killed me. I think I finished somewhere in the 130s. But I’m pretty sure that’s because I selected an injured Dwyane Wade or a terrible Byron Mullens. Excuses aside, I’m back and ready to dominate this time. Join me in the competition! Here’s my team:

    If you live outside the US, then unlucky, you can’t participate.
    (Even though, Slam’s wbsite is an international site, with many commenters from Europe, Asia, and Australia)

    Even if you live in the US there are certain states that can’t participate. Like mine.
