The Razzies are back!  Man, JB almost gets the Razzie for “Tardiness of the Year”!  Hey, better late than never!

Hard to believe this our fourth year awarding Razzies to the worst of the worst.  Screw all the “season’s best” awards everyone else likes to give out!  That’s trash!  Fantasy is more frustrating than it is rewarding, we all know that!  Let’s take a moment to look back at some of our former winners; so in your head, sing some dramatic music while looking back at our infamous acceptance speeches from our previous seasons:

2013-14 Razzies

2014-15 Razzies

2015-16 Razzies

And for our nominees below, they only need your vote to get their very own awards!  We’ve got Kevin Durant looking at his second “worst injury” award, the Lakers going for back-to-back worst fantasy team wins…  They’re getting repeats like the Kobe Bryant glory years!

So we call on you – yes, you Razzball Nation – to again vote for the worst of the worst of the 2016-17 Fantasy Basketball Season, by voting on which players, teams, and coaches spurned you the hardest.  We’ll be having our Awards Ceremony (winners awards solely off of your votes) and acceptance speeches on Tuesday, so get your votes in over the weekend!  Vote once!  Vote often!  Have your voice be heard, and let’s award some Razzies!

Thank everyone for voting, and of course let me know what we left off in balloting this year!  I’m sure there are several more rightful nominees that could’ve gotten some Razzie noms.  Let me know the snubs!  And thanks again for dropping by, Razzball Nation!

    Worst Injury, apart from KD, was for sure CP3, he is missing in the list!
    On the contrary, Millsap was so underperforming before the injury that I agree not to count him.

      @OSH: Ah yeah that’s a good one! Through a long season it’s easy to forget these things haha. Since CP3 didn’t miss any of the playoffs, I kinda forgot about it x)

        @JB Gilpin: Per BBM ranking, considering yesterday:
        KD Rank 1, 59 games
        CP3 Rank 9, 58 games
        Lowry 12, 57 games
        Kevin Love is Kevin Love
        And then Gay and EMBIIID with 30 games.
        But yes, the only positive thing of CP3 is that he was playing during the PO (if you managed to qualify without him!).

          @OSH: Yeah I think I had some recency bias going Millsap, but KD and Lowry out for the end were def killers. Maybe shoulda just had 4 and added Paul 🙂

    My best team this year was crushing fools left and right. Headlined by Durant and Lowry. Yeah, I’m that guy. I still managed to come in third, so I guess yay me?

    Durant went way low in some drafts this year. I nabbed him at 5 in the league above. Followed by Lowry and Jokic. That worked out well until, you know, it didn’t. 🙂

      @Fenris-77: Definite Yay! hah yeah that’s a death blow… Maybe I shoulda included Embiid, I had an Embiid Lowry team… It didn’t finish 3rd though haha.

      Whoa yeah i bet that was a fun team! KD down to 5, wow….

    What’s wrong with Gary Harris? I’ve held him since draft and he’s definitely rewarding my faith in him. I’m in the championship week now and wouldn’t have gotten here without him. One of the few guards/wings who gives you solid fg% and steady contribution.

      @Pong: Hah it was just a running gag. I argued without an IL spot in a 10 or 12er, he wasnt a must hold. And still think that was right. Of course if you had IL, you def stash him!

    • Slim

      @Pong: Yeah its the FG% combined with those 1.5 stl, 2.0 3s in the 2nd half. Gary Harris on a punt FT team was amazing since so few do what he does. Sure he was hurt to start the year and took a minute to get his legs but the minutes were never in question, even though I had to defend it several times. PostASB is definitely top 50 by any metrics, oh and he turns 23 in sept. But I’ve got him in REL so I have bias right? Although I did go out of my way to trade for him last year because of how impessed I was, it cost me Hood in the end. If that’s a bad call though just wait till I project Richarson next year. I’m thinking Middleton-esque.

        @Slim:

        I don’t think that’s too out there if he can bring his % back up. Those stocks from a guard is awesome. HE can be a steal next year depending on his playoff performance

        • JB Gilpin

          @Slim: @Pong: YOU HAVE SO MUCH BIAS! Haha. Yeah he played well, oh and 10000% like Harris, I always liked that trade. I’ll like Harris well over Richardson next year… Richardson can’t score consistently like Middleton can I don’t think…

    Worst player that was probably drafted, Emmanuel Mudiay.

    • JB Gilpin

      @Dusty: Brandon Knight I think went higher and did even less haha. but yeah maybe I make that a category next yr!

        @JB Gilpin: I went with both in a league or two! Good times…
