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

by April 20, 2012

We told you about the one-night fantasy basketball league challenge from Draftstreet.com, giving away $250 in free prizes exclusively to SLAMonline readers. The one-night contest will go down 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 (same as always) 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 April 20 at 7:00pm ET at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.

As always, I’m putting together a squad of almost-definitely terrible fantasy picks. Don’t let me beat you. Here’s my team this time around, which I actually think is the best roster I’ve had since starting these contests:
