Welcome to the semis!  If you’ve survived this long in your standard H2H formats, then you’re merely 2 wins away from a title.  Hard to believe after the marathon!  Just think of how many more games the NCAA title hopefuls have to win to get a National Title!

With a mere two weeks left, there’s only 14 more days of streaming on the docket, making every add/drop count.  So now’s the time (if you haven’t yet, whaaaaaaaaaaa?!) to check out The Stocktonator!  Check out or new short-shorts robotics to help with your streaming decisions for each and every day this upcoming week.

And well, I have one RCL team that WON’T need The Stocktonator, due to The Omen getting absolutely possessed last week!  Damian Lillard is now my least favorite player, after going 49/1/5/0/1 with 9 treys last night on 14-21 shooting.  He scored 141 points last week, hitting 19 treys, and shot 55% from the field while doing so.  Cost me the playoffs with narrow wins in FG% and points for my opp in a 4-5 loss.  I’m done with you, Omen!  Doesn’t help he shot 36-36 from the FT line either.  What a preposterous week.  Not to mention that after their bad loss to the Pels last Tuesday, he held a players-only meeting which led to a huge win at San Antonio Wednesday, followed by two big wins against the East besting Hotlanta and HotMiami over the weekend.  Why is Atlanta hot, but Miami isn’t?!  Whoever named it Hotlanta hasn’t been to many other cities!  Portland is the hot city right now though!  Here’s what else went down over the hot weekend in fantasy basketball action:

Super-charged, lightning round edition of the Podcast!  So much to cover, so little time!  On today’s show, we run through tons of fantasy-impacting news like must-own Suns, guys getting shut down, and vets working their way back in.  It’s been a roller coaster these past few days!  We then run through the RCL leaders through the completion, a quick edition of Can We Make Slim Look Stupid, make our 30-point challenge picks, and even have time to check in with our Razzball Fantasy Movie League.  Told you it’s a lightning round!

Ugh, rebuilding teams are starting to rebuild earlier, which is good for the waiver wire hounds, but sucks for our stars!  I wish teams would avoid the backlash of the shame they get by just shutting guys down like 2/3 of the way through the season.  Suns even did that more-or-less with Tyson Chandler!

Last night we got word Eric Bledsoe wouldn’t be starting, then after the game we got confirmation the Pee-nix Suns are shutting him down for the rest of the season with “knee soreness”.  Here’s Bledsoe’s response.

Hah!  Well fantasy owners’ emojis would be a lot angrier than that!  A few commenters have posted about a Bledsoe shutdown, but I certainly didn’t think it would be this soon…  Redraft leagues you obviously have to cut him; in keepers – at anything beyond about a 3rd round value – you’re holding on.  Which brings us to one of the of big nights from emerging must-adds from Wednesday’s action – Ulis S. Great!  Big night in the start for Tyler Ulis, going 13/1/13/2/1 in 39 minutes in the youthfest against the Kings.  Yeah, he’s pretty much must-own now.  Above Cory Joseph, Malcolm Brogdon, all those iffy PG that are hanging around as your last roster spot or two in 10/12ers.  So be Great, and add Ulis!  Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy basketball action:

It’s the most.  Wonderful.  Time.  Of the year!  Yeah, some legit winter wonderland going on up north, sheesh you guys must be excited to be snowed in and watch nothing but basketball the next few nights!

With the playoffs abreast, it’s time to start thinking about those payouts and get paid that money!

Hah, I can’t stop laughing at that silly GIF!  Effin hilarious.  And by money, I mean some Amazon gift cards and another YouTube shaming video, but you can’t really put a price on the latter!

With the regular season now in the books, the 2016-17 RCL Master Standings Table table is now locked in place as we play out the postseason.  Despite a hell of a final push from The Doc is In – going 22-5 over the final 3 weeks – Big Baby’s Lovechild secured the #1 spot through the regular season by a mere half point.  What a close race!  But it’s of course anyone’s game, as the top teams still need to secure their league championship to win the overall title.  So check out where your squads stacked up in the master standings, and here’s some highlights across our 23 RCL Leagues:

No, it’s not the title of some campy 1970’s Sci-Fi movie – Zubac really IS the savior of the world!

I don’t need to keep tooting my own horn – if I was a dog I would – but Ivica Zubac continues to impress, and I’m happy to have the big fellah leading the charge in my RCL playoff efforts!  Getting his second consecutive start, the Zubes tore up the Nuggets for a career-high 25 points on a 25/11/1/0/1 line.  Now, now, I know Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets in general have putrid interior defense, but I don’t care!

Post move O face!  Look at how smooth he is!  Well, despite the fact Jokic has no interest in playing defense, I concede that haha…  Zubac is going to promote World Peace (not the Metta kind though!), figure out how everyone is going to get water, and we’ll be building statues of him by the 2050s.  He shot 12-15 from the field, but weirdly only 1-4 FT as that is a little bit of an issue lately, despite profiling as more of an 80% FT shooter…  So don’t let that bugga-ya-boo, I think that’ll improve.  Just let our future defeater of invading aliens and our inventor of light-speed travel take you to the promised land.  Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy basketball action:

The tournament is back, let’s get some-a-dat mad-ness!

It’s the best time of year to hope to get lucky when randomly picking names (like Santa!), and join the 5th annual Razzball Basketball Bracket Pool, which through the power of hyperlinks, can be joined by clicking it right there.  Damn, after finishing 2nd outta 27 in 2015, I got only 13th outta 37 last year.  I’m ready to win it this year, dammit!  My alma mater, UNCW, going all the way!  But goddamn, why we gotta play an ACC team outta the gate again?!  Stupid Virginia…  At least we got a higher seed!

The prize this year is going to be pretty epic!  Yup, if you get a perfect bracket in our pool, I’ll pay you $1 fiftillion dollars!  Hah, I keed of course; while Razzball is da shiznit, I’m not exactly Warren Buffet out here!  We’re going to award the winner a $50 Amazon Gift Card, just for besting us schmohawks in the Razzball Pool.  The pool is private this year since I don’t want any internet trawlers (trawlers?  trollers?), so the password to join is “razzball”.  I know right, tough to crack that code!  I employed a Navajo Windtalker just to make it!  So join in the Madness, make a bracket, vie for the free price, and cheer for those Cinderellas!

Join the pool and set up your bracket today!

REL Basketball1The playoffs are here!  The playoffs are here!  It’s like Christmas morning for H2H leagues!

The final week of the REL season brought some shuffling with the 3-5 seeds, but the playoff teams were pretty much set, and we’re looking at week 1 matchups of #3 seed Yappers vs. #6 seed Mr. Kite and #4 seed Metamucil (why you changing your team name at the end, bro?!) against #5 Slim.  On top of the determination of the playoff seeding, we had a monster week on the waiver wire!  So if you’re in the super deep leagues, check out who was added in our REL for some streaming ideas.  Best of luck to all in the playoffs!

Here’s how week nineteen in the 2016-17 REL went down, and how we’re looking heading into the first week of the playoffs:

Timing.  It’s a bitch.  Losing one of your bedrocks the weekend before the H2H playoffs is the injury gods spitting into our faces and hitting us across the jaw!  No joke, last night I had a dream that DeMarcus Cousins straight cold-cocked Salah Mejri in the face.  Must’ve lingered from a convo I had with Grey last week about how there’s no more NBA fights, and Mejri always seems to wanna mix it up.  Weird how spot on that dream could be!

Anywho, my trip out West certainly didn’t help my focus!  We got some awful news Saturday that LaMarcus Aldridge is going to be out indefinitely with minor heart arrhythmia.  He missed the final 9 games in his rookie year and 10 days in 2011 due to heart-related issues, so if the further testing done today is positive, maybe we could get him back by the semi-finals next week.  For teams scrapping their way in a do-or-die quarterfinals in the playoffs, unless you have an open INJ spot, Aldridge can probably go.  Get well soon, LA!  In the meantime, David Lee (12/6/2 – 18 mins) and Dewayne Dedmon (9/7/0/0/2 – 22 mins) should get a little added run, but those numbers quoted there were in that weird game Saturday night against the Dubs, with Kerr and Pop benching everyone.  I’m sure ABC was THRILLED when they heard GSW was DNPing everyone and the Spurs were going to be without Kawhi Leonard and LA!  I’m not huge on Lee, but I think he’s your biggest benefactor, and could help deeper leagues or be a streamer for those boring Pts/Reb cats.  Hopefully losing LA doesn’t make you a Ded Mon!  Here’s what else went down over the weekend in fantasy basketball action:

We’re back with the specialist of editions of the Razzball Hoops Pod – on location podcasting! Today we air from sunny Florida as JB continues his Spring Training extravaganza, and I catch up with Slim for basketball talk on the road.  Sorry the audio levels are a little wonky, I told Slim I was going to be way louder than he expected with my Podcast voice!  Shun the unbeliever!  When we’re back with our normal set-up next week, we’ll be straightened out…  Anyway, on today’s show we catch up on fringy PG to own, big man injuries, and where we think we’ll draft Derrick Favors next year.  Plus we make our 30-point challenge picks, and as always, wrap our week at the movies.
