  6. How To Play.
    • Overview. Players are assigned a rating value based on 2018-19 final standings and projected 2019-20 performances (the "Player ratings"). Entrants must select one player from each of the ten (10) player groups to form a complete active roster. Each player group consists of five (5) pro basketball players. Points are awarded following each day that includes a pro basketball game (see Scoring System below).
    • Weekly Play. The Contest will separate the 2019-20 Pro Basketball schedule into twenty-four (24) weeks ("Contest Weeks"). The weeks will run from pro basketball games starting on October 23, 2019 through the final game played on April 14, 2020. Points scored each week will carry over and will be used to determine your cumulative score. Player Groups (described above) will reset after each Contest Week. Also, player selections do not carry over from week to week so every participant will need to log-in to the Website and select new players prior to the beginning of a new Contest Week.
    • Scoring. From all eligible entries received, the weekly winners will be determined based on their ability to use their skill and knowledge of pro basketball to accumulate the most points during a Contest Week. In the event a scheduled pro basketball game does not occur as scheduled (e.g., the game is cancelled, postponed, etc.) no points will be awarded. Ties will be broken in accordance with the tiebreaker procedure below.
    • Tiebreakers. Should a tie exist between two (2) or more entrants eligible for the weekly prizes, the winner will be the entrant that has the highest score in Group #1. If a tie persists, the winner will be the team with the highest score in Group #2. Persisting tiebreakers will continue using Group #3, Group #4, and so on. If a tie continues to persist, the weekly prize will be split with all remaining entrants. Should a tie exist between two (2) or more entrants eligible for the overall prize, the winner will be the entrant who has the highest score in week 24. If a tie persists, the winner will be the team with the highest score in week 23 and so on. If a tie continues to persist, the prize will be split evenly among the remaining entrants. In all cases, an entry that does not win a tiebreaker is eliminated from consideration.
    • Alternative Entries. Roster selection for an alternative entry team can be done by placing all necessary details (your member ID, name, team name, player names and ID numbers) in a letter sized envelope and sending it to: Slam Dunk Pick'em Alternative Entry Trades, c/o Head2Head Sports, 4727 E. Bell Rd., Suite 45-328, Phoenix, AZ 85032. Alternative entry selections must be received by Tuesday of each week to be processed and valid for the immediately following week of play. H2H reserves the right to disqualify any alternative entry selections that arrive late, or are received with insufficient, incorrect or illegible information (e.g., insufficient Player ID number).
  7. Scoring System. Each entrant's team will be ranked by total points by applying the official scoring system:
    • Player Points. Each player receives 1 H2H point for every point, rebound, assist, steal, and blocked shot. Each player loses 1 H2H point for each turnover. In addition, each player will receive 5 H2H points for each game that he plays in AND his team wins.
    • Game Limits. Only a player's top four (4) games during the period will be used to calculate his weekly total.
    • Live Scoring. To the extent that this contest offers or displays live scoring, standings, results, statistics, or other information relating to the contest ("Live Information"), all such Live Information is unofficial and is offered for informational and/or entertainment purposes only.
  8. Contest Period. The Contest begins on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at approximately 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time ("ET"), 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time ("PT") and ends after the last scheduled pro basketball game played on April 14, 2020 (the "Contest Period").
    • Lock Time. All team selections will lock at the weekly trade deadline on Wednesdays at 10pm ET/7pm PT. All rosters must be submitted, received and recorded by H2H's computer by this scheduled lock time. Selections submitted after the deadlines are considered invalid. H2H's server is the official time keeping device for this contest.
    • Early Games/Flexible Trading. The NBA may schedule games to be played prior to the final trading deadline each week - ex: afternoon games, or games moved earlier because of weather, etc. In these situations, you have the ability to choose a player prior to the designated NBA start/tip-off time. Any players on your roster from those teams playing at the designated start time will be locked on your roster for that H2H period. After the designated start time, you will be unable to pick up or drop players or teams from the game(s) that have started. For the remainder of the period, you will be limited to choose from teams that have not played prior to the designated final trade deadline.
    • Schedule Changes. Scoring is based only on the games actually played each week. If, for any reason, a player's game is postponed (due to weather, etc.) you will only receive points for that game if you have the player on your roster the day the game is officially completed.
    • All-Star Break. Head2Head will take a "bye week" from February 12-18, 2020 during the NBA All-Star Break. Most NBA teams have only 1 game scheduled, and due to the lack of competition for that week, we take that week off from competition. For the first period after the NBA All-Star Game, the trade deadline will be extended to end on Friday at 10pm ET/7pm PT, due to a limited number of games earlier in the scoring period. Note that flexible trading procedures will still be in effect.
  9. The Commissioner's Office. An official standards and practices committee called The Commissioner's Office has been established to govern the rules and play of this Contest. You may address any questions, discrepancies, concerns or suggestions to The Commissioner's Office, c/o Head2Head Sports, 4727 E. Bell Rd., Suite 45-328, Phoenix, AZ 85032.
  10. Payment. All charges made through this website and our sports agents will be charged immediately to your credit card. By providing Head2Head with your credit card number, you agree to pay for all charges made in connection with this Contest. Head2Head reserves the right to suspend all contest activity, internet access and trading, for accounts that do not have a valid credit card number and expiration date, or a credit balance. PRIZES WILL ONLY BE AWARDED TO ENTRANTS WHOSE ACCOUNTS ARE PAID IN FULL BY FRIDAY FOLLOWING THE END OF THE PERIOD. If your account is not in good standing, any prizes won will be forfeited. Entrants are not required to open an account or pay an optional service fee to play and to compete for prizes.
  11. Prizes. The approximate retail value ("ARV") of all prizes is $1,289.92.
    • Weekly Prizes (24 winners). H2H will award one of twenty-four (24) weekly prizes to the entrant who accumulates the most points during each Contest Week (and wins any pending tiebreaker). Each Weekly Winner will receive $25 cash. Additionally, Second Place will win $10 cash. Third through Fifth place will be awarded 250 H2H Fantasy Buck$ each. ARV for the weekly prizes totals $43.33 per week.
    • Overall Winner (cumulative scores minus two (2) lowest weekly scores). H2H will award ten (10) overall cumulative point winner prizes to the entrants with the highest scores. The prize for first place will be $250 cash. The prize for second place through fifth place will be 2,000 Fantasy Buck$. Sixth through Tenth place will be awarded 1,000 Fantasy Buck$. ARV for the cumulative prizes is $644.44.
    • No Purchase Necessary to Win. A purchase will not improve your chances of winning. Odds of winning prizes depend on the total number of eligible entries received and the relative pro basketball knowledge of all entrants.
    • Substitution; Taxes. No cash or other prize substitution, assignment or transfer of prizes permitted, except at H2H's sole discretion due to prize unavailability. H2H reserves the right to substitute a prize with one of comparable value or greater value (e.g., H2H may opt instead to award the cash equivalent, up to but not greater than the ARV, of any prize in lieu of the prize itself). THE WINNER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL TAXES ASSOCIATED WITH THE RECEIPT OR USE OF ANY PRIZE.
    • Prize Delivery. Prize winners will receive IRS tax form 1099-M and will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and a liability release within thirty (30) days of notification.

Prizes returned as undeliverable or otherwise not claimed within thirty (30) days after being sent will be forfeited.
    • No Warranty.
