If guys weren't afraid of commitment, so many of them wouldn't have banged Samantha when Charlotte was obviously on the block, and a group of Chi-based fantasy sports junkies behind Draft Day wouldn't have started a stupid-simple fantasy sports platform that offers shloads of customizable options, but doesn't tie you down for an entire season. Of course, if being tied down is your fantasy, don't worry, there are websites out there for that.
On any given day there're a huge array of user-created, open-to-the-public leagues one can join, which range from free entry to $250 buy-ins, but all operate on the same premise: field a cap-friendly squad based on individual player salaries (which reflect their perceived fantasy value, not their actual paycheck, Rashard Lewis) to compete in that night's slate of games, with the winner taking home the cash.
Those who dislike strangers can also form password-protected private leagues, from high-stakes, head-to-head matchups, to ones in which the available players are limited to those on specific, agreed-upon teams, so maybe there can be a meaningful Pistons-Celtics game this season.
And because Thrillist readers are special, they're offering up a $100 prize for an NBA league tonight that subscribers can enter free of charge, just like Samantha!
