[Reposting to the top!  We have many spots open, but more importantly, need more leagues!  Plenty of time to launch and commish an RCL league for the season.  

I lied.  The most important thing is ideas for the YouTube prize!  Read below and post your thoughts!]

The time is here.  The calling, early.  The draft day prep work, extensive.  JB’s hair, slowly growing in.  Yes, RCL Basketball is back!  And we’re as pumped as ever to see who will be the next champion among champions.  The smartest in the room amongst the moderately intelligent people in the room.

So I know what you’re all thinking…  What is JB going to embarrassingly do this year?  If you missed it, I shaved the 13-14 RCL Grand Champion’s team name in my head, and I’m going to do something goofy again.  Well, you’re the biggest part of the site (talking to you readers!) and so I think the Youtube video prize should be something suggested in the comments.  Something that majestically displays the RCL Winner’s team name that I can spread to the world, but doesn’t involve a big monetary investment.  Nothing illegal!  Or tattoos, I don’t have Birdman’s budget!  Low key, but funny.  That would be my tagline if I was single and online dating…  Be sure and share your ideas, reply on comments/suggestions you like, and we’ll have another public shaming in 2015!

But you don’t get only the humiliation video; as usual, Razzball loves to pimp out our gear and we have another official 2014-2015 RCL Champion Jumpsuit (branded basketball of course) to tailor to the official winner (cost of tailor not included).  Most importantly, an everlasting shrine in the annals of history.  Wow, that sentence is fun!  And just as fun, we’ll have the weekly updates tracking the standings throughout the season as we did last year.

We’re going to do the standard head-to-head 9-cats again this year (FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK, TO), 12-team leagues (Yahoo defaults), and the same easy way to track the overall winner.  The top prize will go to the team that A) won their playoffs/league title and B) of the champions, had the best overall W-L-T regular season record.  So to topple the RCL field, you’ve got to weather the playoffs yet have a dominant record in the regular season.  This takes out any crazy logarithms, all that Moneyball math, and makes it an easy way to determine the winner.

We’ll all be chasing defending champion High as Greg Kite, so come one, come all, and start up an official RCL Hoops league today!

TO CREATE A LEAGUE 

  • Create a league with your desired league name in Yahoo using this link
  • Set your Draft Date/Time, but leave everything else DEFAULT.  (NOTE – you must leave your original draft time the same or have unanimous agreement to change the date once your league is set to ensure everyone that has signed up for your league can make the draft.)
  • Make your league public (Commish Tools – Edit League Settings – the last option under “League Settings” – “Make League Publicly Viewable” – “Yes”)
  • Add the league info to the Spreadsheet (which you see below).  You can’t add into the spreadsheet directly in the post, you have to go through that Spreadsheet link.  To get your link to allow RCLers to join your league, go to Commish Tools – Invites Settings – (scroll to the bottom) – Invite URL.  Copy and Paste that link in Column G of the spreadsheet.
  • Update how many spots are filled when you can and enjoy your RCL League!

TO JOIN A LEAGUE

  • Click the Link of the league you’d like to join in the spreadsheet below and sign up.  That’s it!

I’ve already got my JB’s Random Commenter League ready to be joined, so good luck in RCL action this year and we’re looking forward to a big 2014-15!  If you have any questions/comments for setting up or joining, shoot your comments below or if you really need me via e-mail, hit me up at jb@razzball.com.  Thanks for checking out RCL Hoops!

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Bye Felicia: Hmmm good question, I’m not sure…I can check it out when I do my first draft here in less than 2 weeks

    • Richo says:
      (link)

      @Bye Felicia: Nah you can’t. I tried on iphone and ipad with no luck. Need flash player.
      When are the next lot of rankings out JB? My draft is Saturday and I reckon I’ll be throwing blind haymakers after 100. We’ve got a 14 team league- drafting 180 players.
      I’ve created a pretty handy spread sheet to print out that I can send in when I’m done. Colour coded high/low value in cats and has yours, espn and yahoo ranks.
      Thanks mate.

        @Richo: Ugh that sucks, I know on iPad you can get a browser in the app store that uses flash but I got it and didn’t like it.

        We’ll have all top 200 up this week! Finishing up 150 by tomo morning I’m hoping then maybe Thursday to wrap it up.

        Oh sweet man! I hope the Razzball leanings brings ya the title! Huzzah for early drafts!

    whats up man, stop crushing me on WWF….

    Since the Paul George leg incident my 18 team keeper plans have been totally destroyed…. what’s your thoughts, who do I keep now, still Keep George? Here’s my options, can keep 4 guys, add their salary together and subtract from $200 and that’s what I go into our LIVE auction with to purchase the remaining 4 guys, then we do a 5 round snake.

    SO, name your 4 keeps outta this group taking salary into account:

    James Harden $54
    Paul George $27, so cheap, so nasty, so hurt
    Millsap $35
    AL Jeff $$45
    David West $22
    D. Carroll $1
    John Henson $9

    THANKS MAN. anyone else who wants to take a shot i appreciate it as well…..

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tony: Haha sorry man, getting some good letters!

      Sheesh yeah that’s a huge blow and a toughie… Damn the international ball! I’m probably throwing George back, no guarantee he’s the same player although he should recover. Probably keeping Harden, Millsap, Henson and debating Carroll vs. Jefferson depending on how far your budget will go on draft day. I know the $27 for George is a great value but I dunno…

    Hey guys join my league the Ottawa Gatineau one! Looking for dedicated people who will stick it out till the end! Perhaps a small cash pool?

    Just joined Slim’s league! Can’t wait for the season to start. I can assure you I will bring my A-game this time around.

    Is Aladipo going to be close to Kemba this season?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Baezaworldseries: I like Oladipo more – Kemba for treys and assists, but I think steals will be close and Kemba is trending down with all those playmakers now and Stephenson with the ball.

  8. OldMilwaukeePounders says:

    JB, can’t wait for basketball season to start up! I just inherited a team in a long running keeper league and had some questions regarding who to keep, I’ve got two that I will keep for sure in Paul and Griffin…12 team league, keep a max of 4, H2H, standard ESPN scoring. Here are my other decent players:

    Lowry, Deron Williams, Rondo, Parsons, Stephenson

    I could always roll with Paul and Blake and take my chances with the other players cut, just wanted to run it by the best NBA guy in the fantasy business for an opinion.

    Thanks for the great work!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: Can’t wait either man! So if you forfeit a keeper, you get an earlier pick right? I would hold Lowry, but the rest I might walk, assuming you get a 4th round pick there. Parsons is close, but you can roll the dice and could get someone better. Appreciate it man, thanks for droppin by!

      • OldMilwaukeePounders says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Forfeiture of a keeper would give me the 4th round pick, yes. I agree, a start of Paul, Griffin, Lowry, and a chance that someone else makes a mistake is a good place to start.

        I’ll be back frequently, my Blazers have work to do and so do my fantasy squads!

  9. Lasandro says:

    Gentleman, I’m in a 12 team H2H with whacky settings: Pts (1), Blks (5), Stls (4), Asts (3), O Brds (3), D Brds (2), Pfs (-1), TOs (-2), 3PM (1). My current lineup:
    AD
    Ibaka
    Millsap
    Ty
    MCW
    Favors
    Jennings
    I have three more picks to go and need SFs and SGs to fill out my roster to be eligible for the league. The only notable SG/SF players out there (if they dont get picked before my next pick) are Ariza, Knight, Beal, Giannis, Beverley, Stuckey, Bradley, Draymond, JR Smith. Based on the league settings and their heavy mins, I’m leaning towards Ariza and Giannis (shame he seems to only be listed as a SG). But would love your input @jb Gilpin and @Slim

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Hmmm Ariza only SG? That’s kinda funky, but yeah he’s my next pick for ya if he’s there. Doesn’t turn the ball over and should be a great fit!

    • Mora Best says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Bradley Beal is a pretty decent option at SG! He’s definitely up and coming… Ariza’s stats will go down with his change to HOU. We’ll see though… Also back that up with Stuckey towards the end of the draft if you get the chance.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Mora Best: I actually think Ariza won’t lose too much except some points, I think he can still be solid. Beal doesn’t do much besides score yet, I think the ancillary stats develop, but why I like Ariza :)

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @Mora Best: thanks for the input guys! @jb Gilpin I meant that Giannis only comes in at SG unfortunately, but yes, ariza is in fact a great next pick for me in this format. And the other two picks? Giannis next, with all that multi cat potential? If stuckey does indeed take over the assists in Indy, he would certainly be interesting in my format @mora best

        • Lasandro says:
          (link)

          @JB Gipin: nope, I was wrong! Giannis is both! And now Ariza has been picked up haha. Well, wish me luck..

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Lasandro: Ahhh gotcha. Yeah I made the mistake in my ranks seeing Giannis on Yahoo as only SG because his name is so big the “SF” got blocked by the little news icon! I like Stuckey a lot, but Hill is still there too to distribute, so he’s still only 100ish for me.

            • Lasandro says:
              (link)

              @JB Gilpin: Well, I only have one last pick to go and it HAS to be a SG. I’m sad panda that Payton or McDaniels dont qualify. Am gonna have to sift through the likes of Stuckey, Martin, Meeks, Brewer, Burks and the likes. Thoughts? If Meeks does anything close to what he did last year, I’d love him with all those stls and threes

            • Lasandro says:
              (link)

              @JB Gilpin: nope, just need a SF as giannis is SG eligible. Who between mcdaniels, t Harris or draymond? @ctmn thanks man, ended up with knight :)

          • Lasandro says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Cheers bud, Giannis is on the squad, along with my peeps listed above. Have two more spots and need one of them to be a SG, so am thinking of either B Knight or Beverley, considering the emphasis on stls. Then for my last pick, who do you like more in this format between rooks Payton and McDaniels? My only concern is McDaniels mins in that cluster poop in Philly. But 4 blks in today’s preseason is kinda nasty! Payton is obviously nice too

            • CTMN says:
              (link)

              A@Lasandro: I would take Knight and Elfrid for overall and JB’s rankings probably say the same.

        • Lasandro says:
          (link)

          @jb Gilpin: forget all them other posts I wrote – thing of the past. My team:
          AD
          Ibaka
          Millsap
          Favors
          Lawson
          Jennings
          MCW
          Giannis
          Knight
          Stuckey
          With this strange league setting, I’m hoping I hit all the important cats hard, while making sure pts, 3pts remain high overall. Thoughts?

    Greetings RazzBall,

    Are you guys open to the idea of me starting an Auction league with everything else as listed above? That would be pretty awesome, so let me know if I can and I’ll start up a Mawk RazzBall ASAP!

      @Mora Best: Greetings sir! I am totally for it! Just be sure in your league title you mention it’s an auction league, like Mawk Razzball (auction) as the title or something in the spreadsheet. Thanks man! Really appreciate it!

                  @Mora Best: Hey JB,

                  I understand the rules about not changing draft date! However no one has signed up yet and I totally would be able to make the draft 10/18/2014, 3 PM EST so that the people from the other league can join us as well! Wanted to get the green light because I understand switching the draft date is a no no; however no one was signed up anyways so it’ s not really affecting anyone but the people I accidentally blocked from signing up by making my draft time during their draft like a smart guy, smh. Let me know the feasibility, thanks.

                  There’s no need to overreact. My personal life isn’t your business, so don’t tell me what I should or shouldn’t prioritize. I have other commitments to other people, and saying I’ll “try to figure something out” is nothing like a guarantee. I wasn’t checking the league times all day so I didn’t see the time until after, and even then it’s not like I was trying to trick you or something. I made a team thinking I could try to figure out my personal schedule, and I couldn’t. So I deleted it. I’m sorry if I inconvenienceed you but as I said, there’s really nothing I can do about my own life and yeah, fantasy basketball is not the #1 thing on my to do list.

                    @CTMN: Also, don’t assume that I can do other things whenever I want, you don’t know my personal situation and why I’m more serious about working out, I have other goals and people who are helping me aren’t gonna go out of there way for me cause of a fantasy basketball league. You should really give people the benefit of the doubt if you don’t know enough info, instead of just being cynical about it.

However when you inconvenience me into switching my personal schedule around to accommodate you and you give your word that Youll be there, then you set an expectation. I had three people drop out after I switched the draft date which I did for YOU. On top of that you didn’t even have the courtesy to hit me up and let me know you were dropping out after I did all of that (Switching draft date, running it by JB, changing worksheet, etc,)! You said I should have told you the date but I did so don’t say I should have done something if when I correct you and tell you I did, you’re going create another excuse. I’m not being cynical, rather Im irritated by how rude You are and the lack of courtesy that comes with it. You inconveinced me major then dropped out after I went through Alot of trouble. Like you don’t get it and I’m sure you won’t. I could care less how you prioritize working out or if fantasy is important to you or not. However I do value sticking to your word when you give it. Youre rude and a Flaker in my book, PERIOD. Last time I ever accommodate a stranger, who obviously doesnt get common courtesy. Look we can agree to disagree, but you suck in my book Corn Flakes. #Flaker @CTMN: Noy only did I post time before I changed it but you didn’t even say anything before dropping out AFTER confirming on here that you would work it out. Lastly you’d rather work out at the gym instead of drafting Fantasy Basketball as you’ve stated so there’s nothing o can fo about your Corn Flaking nature. S

Look we can agree to disagree, but you suck in my book Corn Flakes. #Flaker @<a href="#comment-27

                  @Mora Best: I’m not sure how I’m the “rude” one when you’re the one who keeps throwing insults at me. I made a mistake and I didn’t see what time you had changed the draft to until later, after it was too late to tell you to make it later. I never meant to tell you that I was 100% in, that was a mistake. Clearly you DO care what I prioritize and what I wanna do, because you keep mentioning it! I also never told you to switch the draft, in my first comment all I said was that I couldn’t do it BECAUSE the draft was at a bad time for me. Never said you HAD to change the draft time or anything, so don’t blame me for people leaving your league. You could have kept it at the same time if you wanted, but you didn’t because you thought people weren’t joining because of the other Rcl that day. You don’t have to call me out like I purposely tried to snake you, it was more like a misunderstanding and I admit I made a mistake. Just don’t act like it was all my fault.

                    @CTMN: @CTMN: Look man, you didn’t keep your word and in my eyes that makes you less of a man, PERIOD. We can agree to disagree and move on… I’m done #Flaker

                  @JB Gilpin: Might have to delete league as no one is really signing up… CTMN nothing more than a flake, smh. Still don’t get it why he acted like he wanted to join and had me switch the draft date #Flaker .

                    @Mora Best: Maybe you should have asked WHEN is a good time for me instead of just changing it…the middle of the day was not a good idea.

                      (link)

                      @CTMN: First Off I posted the time and date BEFORE I switched it and made it clear I was doing such to accomodate your request. You said NOTHING… so I switched it. Second, you deleted your team after RE-affirming that you would work it out and make sure you made it. Third, Fantasy Basketball is obviously not serious to you as you would rather work out then draft and work out later like any other fantasy head would do. There is NOTHING I can do to control or dictate your corn FLAKE nature… That was my fault for accommodating a stranger who obviously places no value in such a thing. #Flaker

      @Pops: Love at 6 seems a little steep for me… You pass on Paul or Harden I assume? And while I love your top 3 bigs, I think you’re a little light on PG. Other than that, %s and everything else looks really solid

      @Clyde Prompto: Haha, well right now I’m thinking of doing maybe a food challenge. Might be funny, but unsure how to tie it into the RCL winner’s name…

      • Clyde Prompto says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Haha hmmm. Do you mean like an “Eww I can’t believe someone would eat that!” challenge or a “Lord have mercy how can one man eat so much so fast!?” challenge?

          @Clyde Prompto: More of the “those wings are so spicy, it’s like the sauce is made from the blood of Alien” type challenge since spicy is my strong suit haha, but I’m down for whatever! We could make it the winning team gets to decide what kind of food challenge I have to try and do…

    Are you going to do it for roto leagues ?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zuzana Drabinova: Nah, only H2H because we need to crown the overall winner and it’s tough to translate the best roto team vs. best H2H team. Went for H2H since it’s the most common format for hoops.

      • Zuzana Drabinova says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Too bad, roto is way funnier… H2H is just maths, Roto is anticipation & hardwork !

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Zuzana Drabinova: H2H is just as much anticipation and takes more week to week hard work! If you win this year maybe we can switch it to Roto if you wanna start an RCL team :)

          • Zuzana Drabinova says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Sorry I don’t play H2H anymore, boosted roto (oreb, to & a/t ratio) is way way funnier. IMO, of course !

              JB Gilpin says:

              @Zuzana Drabinova: No prob! Yeah I’m def roto only for baseball, but for hoops I like H2H myself.

    Drop Stuckey, T. Burke or Draymond Green for Alec Burks?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @SMLV1: Nah to all 3 for me, I moved Burks way down in my ranks re-thinking it. If I needed points only, I might drop teammate Burke

    • cleanuptheglass says:
      (link)

      @SMLV1: drop Stuckey or Trey. Alec has actual NBA skills and tore up the end of season. Almost as important… do not drop Draymond

      @Sam from Team: What Would Jrue Do?:

      great job!

      we got a 12th and got our draft done!

      saw some hard core razzball fandom at work in the draft! tough drafting against guys who are all getting the same information source ;)

      should be a great season.

      heres my team

      westbrook 7
      milsap 18
      vucevic 37
      ellis 42
      matthews 55
      calderon 66
      jones 79
      r jackson 90
      afflalo 103
      hawes 114
      chalmers 127
      kanter 138
      asik 151

      have to say the last 6 picks are incredible VALUE. a lot of guys were complaining in our draft at the end and it seemed they just mailed in the 2nd half of the draft.

      let’s hear thoughts on my team build!

      thanks

                @JB Gilpin: i wasn’t going to consider throwing another monkeywrench into my fantasy b’ball learning curve,but can you guide me to or explain the difference in an auction league and h2h. i’m worried after i beat you and slim i’m going to get bored with h2h…..uhhh ohhhh!!!!

                  @dan-o1: pssshhh what league did you beat us in?

                  Auction I’m definitely getting PG and C with big money. Then filling in with wings. PG with heavy money since theres some decent upside bigs out there.

                  • dan-o1 says:
                    (link)

                    @JB Gilpin: lol I’m pretty sure you misread/interpreted something that i wrote. was asking what the difference between an auction and h2h is, last season was my first team and it was h2h. no worries, that’s one of the google benefits. was gonna sign up for phil’s league, but better i don’t at this point.
                    “what league did you beat us in”-i was gonna say the jb beats slim league, but dont wanna sound my death knell anymore lmao

                      @dan-o1: Ohhhhhhh my bad too, too many beers last night :) I got ya man. I’m bringin my A game this year so that doesn’t happen!

                      I sorta answered with strategy not the real question, yeah auction is still a H2H league it’s just what google probably told ya over the standard snake draft. So you can get anyone you want. I kinda lept from saying that to saying in an auction, that’s how I build my team.

                      I’m pumped for SF @ DEN tonight, tons of fantasy players in that, so if you comment during that game I might fuck up another answer haha :)
