Welcome back to The Abode. If you missed the genesis, click here.

After a blowout-infested playoffs, the hype leading up to Warriors/Cavs III in the NBA Finals almost reached Mayweather/Pacquiao levels. Almost. Nothing will surpass the chicanery of Mayweather/Pac, though. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey would’ve been most impressed. Anyways, storylines and narratives were tossed around and many thought (perhaps wished?) that a heated, epic Finals would be showcased.

Game 1. Warriors 113. Cavs 91. The Cavs had 20 turnovers and the Warriors made 15 more field goals on 20 more attempts.

The Warriors Voltron’d up, while the Cavs were a bunch of scurrying ants trying to escape the ray of death from the magnifying glass of a nine-year old.

The Cavs did not panic, though, and Game 2 was an epic battle for two and a half quarters.

Please, blog, may I have some more?

Welcome to The Abode.

Please take off your shoes. We are not freaking savages. It used to boggle my mind when I’d go to a non-Asian home and just prance around with my shoes on, literally wiping shit all over the floor. Made no sense to me. That is…until someone with stank ass feet would take off their shoes and leave a trail like Pepe Le Pew. I got it. I get it. I still prefer the taking off of shoes, but I now have a deeper understanding and respect for why certain households would choose to leave their shoes on.

Which brings me to why The Abode was created.

The Abode is a place where WE can all exchange ideas and perspectives to better understand, not only hoops, but the world around us. The great thing about Razzball is the community and interaction in the comments section.

The Abode will be a place where anyone can talk about anything at anytime.

You wanted to punch your co-worker because he said some stupid shit at the water cooler? The Abode is a place to vent. You knocked down the game-winning shot at your rec league game? Come gloat at The Abode. But bring video evidence or it didn’t happen. Want to get down to business and discuss fantasy strategy? I hear the hoops commentators are very sharp and they don’t call me Sontzu for nothing.

The Abode will also be a place where I can just take a dump with my brain on anything hoops related. Why is the color of the basketball orange? I mean, I know why because I just googled it, but the question remains. Why? Like why not use the red, white, and blue ABA ball?

I’ve spent a ridiculously stupid amount of time debating whether it’s better to be lucky or good. So much weed. So much time. Wasted. I never go to Roscoe’s and debate the merits of chicken or waffles! It’s both! Always both! The Celtics reiterated that simple concept last night at the NBA Draft Lottery, where the balls bounced up-and-down, side-to-side, and all-around to give them the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Is that going to be Markelle Fultz? Did you know that Fultz’s wingspan is longer that Josh Jackson’s? Crazy. Anyways, must be nice Celtics fans. Must be nice…As a Lakers fan, it pained me to put that logo up top, but I give props when props are due.

JB has been your Grand Poobah of Fantasy Hoops for the last few years. He took Razzball Basketball from Ashy to ClassyUnfortunately, like Ryu at the end of Street Fighter 2, JB has walked away to seek his next challenge. Wishing you nothing but the best JB!

With that said, I want to introduce myself to all of you. I’m SON. No, not Stream-O-Nator. I started out on the football side, then contributed for baseball. Now, I’m taking over for JB on the hoops side. I’ve got big shoes to fill, both literally and figuratively. I thought it only appropriate to start things off with this:
