(Re-posting to the top one last time, with the same SUPER LOGO!  Last chance to create an RCL league and try to topple the field, or fill out on of the remaining leagues that needs owners.  Let’s get a few more leagues together before Opening Night next Tuesday!)

The RCLs are back, baby!  Ugh, I am eager to win some titles this year after getting bounced in the finals in not one, not two, but THREE different leagues last year.  Infuriating!  I think that just proves I need to be in like, 15 RCLs this year.  You should too!

With the new season upon us, it’s time to round up the competitors in Razzball Nation for a chance at RCL glory.  Try for infamy and join legends High as Greg Kite, Akron Lebrons, & Nick is Razzy in the RCL Hall of Fame by beating the best & brightest fantasy basketball community in the land.  And if you’re stumped on a good team name for your 2016-17 RCL squads, be sure to use our RAZZBALL BASKETBALL TEAM NAME GENERATOR with some Razzball-exclusive terms in there.  Robin Lopez TOTALLY sucks at basketball!  While getting your name immortalized in the Hall of Fame is obviously priceless, 1st place will receive a $50 Amazon gift card and the power of puppetry by subjecting me to another YouTube shaming video.  I’m totally up for suggestions here, just no tattoos, gross out challenges, or things that would get me in trouble with my wife…

Just like the queen in GoT, I deserve to have the bells rung and “Shame!” chanted at me walking naked across town as well…  I haven’t completed my video for Nick is Razzy yet!  It’s going to happen!  I’m still gearing up for a volume eating challenge which will be posted in mid-September.  In previous seasons, I shaved my head for High as Greg Kite and ate some nasty-ass, spicy wings for Akron Lebrons to commemorate their destruction of the RCL field.  Nick is Razzy is about to make JB is pukey!  And not to be left out, 2nd place will get a $20 Amazon gift card as well.

We’re going with our standard head-to-head 9-cats this year (FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLK, TO), which Yahoo smartly reverted back to as their default.  RCLs will again be 12-team leagues, same roster comp as last year (10 starters by your standard positions breakdown, 3 bench, 2 IL) 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 survive the playoffs yet have a dominant record in the regular season.  This takes out any crazy logarithms, any of that internet magic Rudy does for baseball, and any of that math stuff that confuses me that goes beyond counting to 10…  Why Slim handles the numbers!

We’ll all be chasing defending champion Nick is Razzy, so come one, come all, and start up an official RCL Hoops league today!

I can keep your email and be sure to let you know right before I launch my next RCL though, I’ll be making a few more through the offseason, so you’ll def be in one, if you need to delete your team in this first one

      @MAC: Razzup man?! Damn yeah I don’t like to move draft times since hopefully everyone that joined is avail for the time I set up and I don’t wanna make it a time someone else can’t join. As I said above to mak, if you need to drop out I’ll shoot ya an email when I launch my next league, before I put it live!

                @Aaron: Hah sure thing, I’ll comment back to ya here if he leaves when the time comes! And keep your eye out for more leagues I’ll def be making 1 or 2 more on top of our Slim vs. Jb league 🙂

                    @Aaron: Nice!! I’ll still let ya know for the next one too if you’re still interested – yeah someone commented on another post I think they had to leave the league, so you got in before I updated it haha. Welcome to the league man!

                    • Aaron says:
                      (link)

                      @JB Gilpin: yeah im still interested in the JB vs slim one!! will you let me know through the pod or what???

                      (link)

                      @JB Gilpin: by the way do you know if theres any way where i can upload my own rankings on yahoo’s drafts?

                    • JB Gilpin

                      JB Gilpin says:
                      (link)

                      Yeah we’ll do Slim vs. JB with a contest on the Pod. I was gonna let you know when my second RCL comes out though too! For ranks, go to Draft -> Predraft Rankings then a blue button that says “Edit my Pre-Draft Player Rankings. There ya go! And in that final link there, standard is 6 team playoffs, 1 and 2 get byes

                    • Aaron says:
                      (link)

                      @JB Gilpin: when will your second RCL come out?? 😛 and by ranks i mean like when i do a mock, i get to see my own ranks because when i edit the pre-draft rankings and save them i cant see them anywhere when i do mock drafts. Is there any way I can see my own ranks instead of just yahoo’s ranks when I am mock drafting

                    • JB Gilpin

                      JB Gilpin says:
                      (link)

                      Hah prob last week of the month, still a while to go!

                      Hmmmmm, not sure on Mocks. I don’t think so though, because your actual league draft has to load before launching which takes a minute.

                      What you could do, is join a public league just for the sake of drafting, and use your ranks there then barely pay attention to that league?

  10. Dante Green says:

    Just finished doing a 14-team league draft. Mann I must say, it’s kind of hard to assess your team when it is your first time to draft in a 14-teamer (I’m so used to drafting in 12-teamers). And to be honest I really don’t know if whether I drafted well or poorly! Hah So here’s how I drafted my team:

    #5 Towns
    Not much to say here but that I loved this pick. Dude’s gonna kill it under Thibbs.

    #24 McCollum
    I know you wouldn’t like this but I really wanted a guard! Hah. I was hoping to land IT but someone else took him at 19. And just a side story, I almost had a chance at landing Kemba bcoz he was taken at 23!! If only the guy went for Irving instead! Anyway, love me some last season’s MIP!

    #33 Hayward
    Again you may not like this one. Hah!

    #52 Schroder
    Damnn this could very well be a reach…….. You ranked him at 57 though. With my 4th round pick I was contemplating between him, Teague, and DAngelo. I don’t like Teague with the Indiana George, and Rusell… I mean aint Schrod sexier than Russ? Haha

    #61 Crowder, #80 T. Harris, #89 Clarkson, #108 Nurkic
    I consider these four my value picks. I mean you can say that these guys should be off the board much earlier am I right?

    # Kief Morris, #136 Korver, #145 T. Chandler
    I’m not so sure with my final picks though. Kieff has the potential to bounce back this season and I kind of like that. Korver battling injuries last season made him look like trash and I don’t know if he’ll be able to bounce back this year. Meanwhile, if Tyson could just stay healthy and provide my team a 10/10 a night I will be more than happy.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Nice! Yeeah 5th is locked in as KAT. Hah, yeah that’s too early for CJ for me 🙁 Hurts your dimes, then you have some FG% struggles with your other picks too. Hayward at 33 is fine, I am all about some Schroder, then yeah – love those next 4. Tobias fell to 80?!?!?!?!?

      So your FG% is rough, but TO look great, just might lose AST most weeks. STL look good though with the wings. If Nurk can be all he could be, I think you’ll have enough big man stats too. Pretty solid!

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Argh yeah, FG’s kinda might be an unintentional punt! Still have time to fix it though. Maybe I could move CJ. Yea, Assist department I’m planning on punting so it’s alright. I did place a $1 bid on Capela (dropping Korver in the process) to help build around KAT–FG/REB/BLK. But those FT drain though… I have Gordon who’s my FT anchor and I don’t know how it will pan out if I do manage to get Capela. Hmmm Still the focus is to be really competitive in FG/BLK/REB categories. 3PM, I got enough guys to help with that. STL, yea it’s good with Crowder there and Schrod! Hah. TO looks good if Schroder’s gonna be the only guy to ruin it. Lol

        I’m making a move on Rondae HJ, I’m dropping Tyson for him. Is that OK?

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Hah yea I can’t believe he fell that low, I think he’s going to be great with the Pistons this season.

        Nurkic is going to need his minutes!! Ughh I’m liking the Towns/Nurkic/Harris big man trio. Just going to need to add another serviceable C to compliment them

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Dante Green: Yeah hopefully Capela can be like 60%, he’s still mad young, ya never know! I def would add him over Korver, surprised no one picked Capela in a 14er.

          Yup totally good getting RHJ for Tyson as well! I still think nurk in 25 minutes is going to be a huge contributor

          • Dante Green says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:

            Got both RHJ and capela with a dollar bid for each. Hah Can’t wait for the season to start, I was 11th (12er) last season, but this is my year! We’re going to take home the championship trophy. Hah

        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: dropped duchess not a big fan of holding him in il spot for five months. Really can’t get married to these guys they’re just stocks in the portfolio.

        Bought the brogdon shares then sold for some Beasley aft the deal was announced.

        Should I stick w that move and absorb the beaz inefficiency for some hopeful def stats w a lil scoring or how about Chan in den what are we thinking he does in that ridiculously busy rotation?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Osama: Yeah agree… I took him out of my top 200 entirely. Yup Beasley could start – only concern is he’s not a 3ptm shooter either, and they were worst in the NBA in 3s made and now no Middleton, their only shooter! So I’m not sure Beasley has this “epic” upside.

          Def like Beasley more than Wilson Chandler, I’m not even ranking Wilson. Bench fodder I think

          • BopBop SimSim says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:

            def wouldnt use epic to describe any part of MB game. just looking for some scraps to offset the loss of a top 30 player before season even starts. since that does take a shit all over my playoff chances.

            zeller is floating and worthy of a wire claim how about him over MB, he has a clearer role and obv as the starting C in clt is gonna get touches.

              @BopBop SimSim: Depends on needs, I don’t think Zeller really has much upside with what he did over last year, and Beasley had some surprise D stats. In a vacuum I actually like Beasley

But %s, TO rate, and everything else looks pretty good, you’ll just be looking for some help from an AST-source ThrAGNOF. Hope that helps!

      @bucabrera: Damn, sucks you got such a late pick! I think you did pretty well! TO rate is decent even with Mudiay (who you got at a great value), %s are good, Henson was a HUGE pick for you for BLK… I think you did pretty well! Nothing POPS off the page, but in a deep roto like that, this should be a contender

    Hello experts! Loving your work as usual. Hey…I’m wondering if you all know the scoop on something. It’s sort of a large elephant in the room for me about Yahoo roto leagues. I apologize if it kills the fun for us, but is it me or are most of the teams bots?? I find it hard to believe with the new constant drafting feature that all of those teams are real–and with the auto generated names that never seem to change all year–all those teams making no moves or checking their teams? It just seems like the last couple years have gotten SATURATED with bot teams–like I am lucky if I have 3 other “real” managers in a public league. Really makes your RCL leagues stand out because you’re playing against other humans! Is there any chatter on this–do we know if they are real or bots?

      @Jim: Yeah I’ve given up on public leagues. I’ll either play RCLs or the Y! money leagues whenever they open up. I won a Y!-$250 league last year and it was MUCH easier than a free RCL…

        @Jim: @Slim: What’s up man?! Thanks for stopping by! Hmmmm good question, I dunno… I haven’t played in a free Yahoo roto league I think ever… Maybe some people don’t want to do a mock draft for some reason, and hop in some of those just for shits and giggles? Not sure… But yeah that’s always the peril of free public leagues with no stakes. RCLs are more fun since we’re all interactive the whole season! Wave of the future we hope! Hahaha

    I did my 1st draft last night…
    Pick 12… UGH!!!!!!!

    1st turn, Whiteside/Wall.
    2nd turn PGs are hurt bad and my best bets were Teague or Reggie at 36 or Dragic. A bit of a stretch so I went, Favors/Hayward.
    3rd turn PGs were destroyed, best bet left was Elfrid, Rondo, Knight, Collison… pick 60 is rough so I went Parsons/Fournier for some big 3s and some assists from my wings.
    4th turn I was kind of happy these guys fell and I went Monta/Hill at 84. Felt like a bargain at the time.
    5th turn I liked what I did with blocks early so I was looking for all around type bigs so I went Markieff/Sully.
    6th turn, just looking for some guaranteed minutes here with a smidge of upside so I went KCP/Winslow at 132. Once again felt like a bargain.
    Last pick I was looking for some assists and someone who played on the 1st day of games (OCT 25th) so I went with Mr. Turner.

    Wall, Monta, Hill
    Hayward, Fournier, KCP, Turner
    Whiteside, Favors, Parsons, Markieff, Sully, Winslow

    Not much in the way of youth but sticking with guys mostly in that 26-28 year old range. All in all picking 12th sucks!

      @Slim: Nice, you love that Whiteside Wall combo at least! Damn, yeah as always in our RCLs, PG dries up sooooo fast. I like Monta and HIll that late though. I still dunno if you have enough AST though! At least TO is good, and %s are pretty good. Hope you had a fun time and had a chatty draft room!

        @JB Gilpin: oops… yeah Schroder at 59 killed me. I’m gonna have to stream assists and probably boards until I find another PG. I thought I did OK making up for the lack of 3s early. Percents aren’t terrible but they aren’t good either. I’ll be lucky to finish 50-50 in both. Points are solid, Sully isn’t a scorer but other than that I like it. Steals are solid if not dominant, blocks are real solid too. TOs aren’t crazy and yeah I think I should win it against the top teams without much issue.

        For the assists, I’m hoping Parsons can get to 3.5+, 3+ for Fournier, 3+ for Sully, if I had gone Lowry or Lillard I’d be soooooooo screwed. Yep, I think Wall is the top 2nd round PG because of the assists.

          @Slim: Meh, 3s are always fixed by savvy ThrAGNOFfing…. Now an adverb!

          Wall def fits next to Whiteside, but a lot of the first rounders still offer AST, I still like Lowry next to Giannis more than Wall for example

    Woah, just realized you’re hosting a 3rd one, JB and managed to get in this time. However I’ll actually be on vacation with a +12 hour difference. Might have to rethink this decision…

      @Pong: Oh damn! Well you can always just stay up really late! Haha. Yeah I decided to do a weekend one in the afternoon as a few others wanting to join the first couple RCL leagues I made couldn’t due to the time zone issue.

    Jbizzle forgive me if you’ve already done it, but are you going to compare rankings to Yahoo or other sites? Drafting tmrw, looking for best values.

    Chuch

      JB Gilpin says:

      @SheriffMcRawDawg: Nah I haven’t, I stopped doing these because Yahoo and ESPn arbitrarily change their ranks a few times, and I always would do them a day or two before a big change. Yahoo actually just changed everything again today. I do have this article of me vs. the experts, which is a fairly similar idea, me vs. the consensus: http://basketball.razzball.com/jb-vs-fantasypros-like-fantasyschmos

      Hope that helps man! Good luck in your draft!

    Namaste JB! Joined Matt Haye’s team after you posted the link on twitter 😀

    So my keeper league these were my keepers

    Keeping

    PG : Rubio, Avery Bradley, Elfrid Payton,Exum,

    SG/SF – James Harden , Draymond Green,Hayward,Gallinari,Josh Richardson,

    PF/C – LaMarcus Aldridge, Myles Turner,Gobert,Nelens Noel,Kenneth Faried,Clint Capela,Joel Embiid,

    so the draft was 5:30 am India time and I missed the draft and couldn’t pick the two remaining players! Auto draft got me Wade and Gortat! We roster 180 players in total not counting IR slots
    So I have Noel and Hayward who I put on IR and picked up Delly and TJ McConnell only because both have starting jobs right now 😐
    Lemme know if I should drop any of these two or Faried and pick up somebody else
    The FA pool is …..
    Michael Kidd Gilchrist , Bayless,Amir Johnson,Hibbert , Tyson Chandler, Thon Maker,Trevor Booker,Bjelica, Beverly,P McGaw( Why is he so high n transaction trends on yahoo?), Hernagomez,Kilpatrick,

    Please haaaaaaalp JB!

      @Blint: Awesome, thanks for joining that one for us! Was one of those leagues full for a few weeks, then someone dropped out last minute 🙂

      I wish we had a little more info on Bayless, if he’s out for a long time, then I like McConnell. But I think I would own PBev over him for now. Def like the Delly add! McCaw is up just because he’s recently playing really well in preseason. He’ll be one of the biggest drops once people see he isn’t playing much haha. Hope that helps!

        @JB Gilpin:

        Not a problem at all 🙂 I always wanted to join and this kinda just happened to fall in my lap
        😀

        Yeah will make the Beverly from Mconnell switch right away!

        Whats your take on MKG? hes not having a good preseason!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Blint: Glad it worked out! PBev is scaring me more and more with this knee. None fo thsoe other guys excite me too much. Meh, MKG has always been pretty blah. Pts/Reb and not enough D stats given his pedigree as a good defender

    I claimed a spot in the third JB league, couldn’t be more excited. Being from Europe, these last years I hadn’t been able to make the draft time due to the time difference, but with this one on a Sunday I could finally claim a spot. Really looking forward to the season now. Thanks!
