We all tip our caps to the Barking BassetHounds! Congratulations winning the 2014-15 Razzball Elite League, in one of the most nail-biting fantasy hoops championships I’ve ever seen. The Hounds win the second year of our deep dynasty, with titles for them and Slim last year. I feel so inadequate! At least I got further than Slim this year! Stupid Rubio… I’ll let our title contenders recap the tight matchup, which looked to go to runner-up Breaking Batum until the final games last night. Thanks again to everyone playing in the REL League, and we’re looking forward to another great season in 2015-16!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, remember about a month ago when the Paul George news seemed more optimistic than the Knicks season outlook?! OK, maybe that’s not too optimistic, but ya know…
Slim and I both maintained you can leave George on your wire in H2H leagues as a stash, and it took until the final Sunday of the H2H championship to get back on the court. So maybe we were wrong! Hah, I doubt anybody in a H2H final was able to stash him that long… PG13 returned from that horrific injury last summer for 13/2/2/2/0 on 5-12 FG (3-6 3PTM). Did have the 3 TO, but man, even the most die-hard Pacers-hater has to be happy to see George back on the court. Obviously in Roto, he’s a must add for this final week plus. That said, played 15 minutes off the bench and I doubt he gets to 30 in the remaining week in a half. Oh yeah, assballs and a bump of coke! Needed to be sure this was legit rated PG-13 for “some language and drug use”. Here’s what else went down over the weekend in fantasy basketball action:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another night, another round of injuries to thwart title-contenders hopes and dreams…
Dwyane Wade is sorta a given though… Pick any player for any given night to go down, and Wade is numero uno on that list. Slipped on a banana peel last night, and hit his knee hard on the floor. Couldn’t get to 13 minutes, and made the big time national TNT game even more a disappointment. Plus Wade was scoring early, and shoulda gotten to 30! Later in his game, Chandler Parsons left early with a “sore right knee” limping off into the locker room. Ugh, with no specific impact causing the injury and the Mavs gearing up for the postseason, Parsons can go in H2H leagues and might even be a cut candidate in Roto if you’re not against a starts limit. The Mavs go again tonight (Chandler is almost certainly out) then are off until next Wednesday. Wade on the other hand has an extra day, and has said he’s “hopeful” to play tomorrow. I’m “hopeful” to play 1-on-1 against an NBA player before I get to age 30 and lose the 1 or 2 iotas of athleticism I have left, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen! I could give Scalabrine some size, ya never know! Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy hoops action:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Slim & JB react to a night of elite fantasy lines including triple-doubles from Evan Turner, DeMarcus Cousins, and Russell Westbrook, preview tonight’s games with our 30-Point Challenge picks and preview this weekend’s SideLeague contest, then wrap up the week with what we’ve been watching on TV and at the movies.

Everyone put on their big boy, triple-double pants last night, that’s for sure! Imagine the same pants Fat Albert would wear… With extra room built in for his Prince Albert!
First there was Bootstraps Bootstraps (!!), Evan Turner raising fantasy-owners’ Jolly Rogers for his patented tripdub with nothing else. 13/11/12/0/0 on 6-17 FG with one trey. But hey, a tripdub is a tripdub – and only 1 TO! Then, just a few minutes later, Boogie was like,”Ello Poppet!” Miss Turner was easily upstaged by DeMarcus Cousins, who had one of the best lines on the season. Tripdub? Check. Goromotaro? Check. Rainbow line? Check. Double rainbow line? Almost! 24/21/10/3/6, but did only hit 2-6 FT. And Beard may have upstaged EVEN THAT himself in that game, but more later… Then Russell Westbrook went into double-digits with his triple-doubles! 31/11/11 for his 10th tripdub, but took him a bajillion shots for 10-32 FG (2-11 3PTM 9-11 FT). Man, just a great night of NBA basketball, and hopefully your championship teams reaped the rewards from this all-you-can eat stats buffet. A few more nights like this, and we’ll forget all about the tanking and DNP-rest issues impacting the NBA!

….And we’re back with our regularly scheduled programming! If you missed it yesterday, our polls are open for the 2014-15 Razzies, our prestigious ceremony awarding the best of the best… of terribleness! Larry Drew is like, “Finally! Someone else has to put up with this ish!”
Speaking of putting up with ish, geez navigating all these DNPs is a near impossible chore for championship teams! The finals of the H2H playoffs are often won and lost by waiver fodder, and if you’re in need of some ThrAGNOFfing, Anthony Tolliver is getting some run! Sure most of his stats will make you exclaim with defiance, “please sir, I want s’more!”, but he’s at 3+ treys and 11+ Pts in 3 of the last 4. Got a crazy dose of 40 minutes for 13/10/1/0/0 last night, hitting 4-9 FG (3-7 3PTM 2-2 FT). And like your perfect little ThrAGNOF, he almost never turns it over, with only 2 TO in the past 6 games. 9-catters needing some treys should certainly take a look, and the Pistons have three games in four days – tonight, Friday and Saturday. Threes ain’t got no face! That phrase is so perfectly used here it has got me a little excited in my Dickens.

It’s championship week baby!
144 teams entered, only 24 remain, and we’re less than a week away from crowning the 2014-15 RCL Champion. And the champion will be a… champion (?) of endurance! Navigating these DNPs, injuries, and tanking teams have driven many-a-fantasy-player to neurosis! So may the healthiest and strongest, and well – sanest team prevail!
Check out how your teams stacked up in the final 2014-15 RCL Master Standings table, and here’s how the finals will look across our 12 RCL Leagues:Please, blog, may I have some more?
And the finals are here! Congrats to Barking BassetHounds knocking me off and Breaking Batum pulling off the upset as the 6 seed beating #2 Martyball. David vs. Goliath final! Sheesh, I was going to say I think I had a great team minus the injuries, but I would’ve been bludgeoned by both Batum and Martyball as well! My comeback this year was an illusion… “Magic tricks are what whores do for money…. OR COCAINE!” Good luck to our finalists, and here’s how the semi-finals of the REL playoffs went down in the Razzball Elite League:Please, blog, may I have some more?
