Similar to last week, community members will have an opportunity to play in a FanDuel tournament among their favorite commentators, writers and editors. Unlike the $25.00 top prize though, this week we're playing for big money! Could you use a cool $8,000? That's right, nearly everything you could want for Christmas could be taken care of with a measly $2 bet. Here is the link.
If you haven't set up an account yet and live outside of Louisiana, now is the perfect time. When you sign-up, FanDuel will match your deposit, up to $200. Remember, once you've created your lineup, go hit twitter and be sure to use the hashtag #FanDuelSBN.
Curious as to my current lineup?
Undoubtedly, I'll probably make a tweak or two before tip-off, but I'm liking most of these guys as of this writing. When you go with a couple of expensive players, you always need to find a couple of diamonds in the rough. With both Nene Hilario and Rudy Gay currently hurting, it's not hard to like Omri Casspi and Drew Gooden to succeed in their limited opportunities.
As for some of my other players, Nerlens Noel has been trending upwards, Ty Lawson has found a nice groove and Gorgui Dieng continues to get all the run he can handle with Nikola Pekovic still sidelined.
