The Ultimate Hoops Dream League is the closest thing to playing in the NBA. It's a true, individual experience where your career begins at a player showcase followed by an annual Dream League draft, 16-game regular season, then playoffs where $5,000 in cash prizes is on the line.
Every skill level has value and a place in the Dream League. Why? Because with the league's $100 million Skill Salary Cap, GMs must build the best team, not simply draft the best players. Based on how players perform at their player showcase, they get assigned a skill salary ranking ranging from $1 million to $25 million. A GM must draft a team of 9 players while staying under the salary cap.
