JB – The glitz, the glamour, the Razzies!  Slim we’re back, for the 4th Annual Razzies, I can’t believe we’re now simulcast live on ABC, NBC, and Skinamax!

Slim – Yeah, I dunno how you sold that third one…

JB starts to sheepishly unbutton his tuxedo.

Slim – STOP!

JB buttons it back on…

JB – …Well, simulcast on ABC and NBC then…  The cameras are out, our NBA nominees are arriving on the red carpet as we speak.  Our Razzies are backstage with THE CORRECT award cards set up by our PAs for each 16-17 Razzies, with the Razzie awarded to each esteemed winner by your votes.  There’s Chandler Parsons sporting a walking cane, I guess there’s no hope that it was all an act and he goes into a front somersault like Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka, right?!

Slim – …I’m surprised he’s not in a wheelchair…  Ohhhh, entering in the west entrance, let’s hope he can fit that hat in under the doorway!  It’s…  Coach Asshat!

JB – Nice spot Slim, yes Coach Asshat looks like a total Mess, fitting for his season, I just love this time of year!

Slim – Speaking of love, remember last year when I showed you some pictures of Gary Harris I was hoping he would see, this time I have a video!

Slim pulls out his phone [NOT an iPhone!], and starts playing a video.  There is so.  Much.  Hair!

JB – No!  NO!  Make it stop!  Well, we got Skinamax back, but lost ABC and NBC, 1 outta 3 ain’t bad!  Speaking of, there’s Andre Drummond!  Waving at the crowd, shoulder hair busting through his tuxedo.  What a illustrious night.  Slim, I think everyone has about filed away into our ballroom, Let’s award some Razzies!

Slim is disgustingly still holding his phone up to the camera.  JB just shakes his head…

Razzball Nation!  For most of us H2Hers the season is over, but we’ve still got Roto wrapping up and some ill-conceived H2H finals pressing through, so I wanted to take a quick look at some Daily Notes over the last stretch of action.  Really the only reason it would be fun to still have games matter is if you own superstars on teams vying for the 7th or 8th seed.  Enter Omen, stage left!

Damian Lillard showed Utah why he really hates jazz music, going 59/6/5/1/0, and somehow dropping that kind of line without a TO.  Hit 9 triples and 14-16 FT, on his way to a career and franchise high…  It’s a horror film watching him slice up oppo D’s!  Career-highs in FG%, FT%, scoring, and he’s dropped his TO rate from 3.2 last year back down to 2.6.  Funny how no one complains about his sub-1.0 STL rate though, unlike Dennis Schroder!  But when you’re hitting 3 treys a game at almost 45% from the field, you get a pass!  What a year from “Baby”, as he plays his way into a clear early-to-mid second rounder for drafts in 2017-18.  Can’t wait to unveil some ranks!  Tomorrow we’ll have the Razzies Presentation (if you haven’t voted yet – vote now!), then Wednesday my 2017-18 Top 10.  Fantasy never sleeps over here on hoops!  Here’s what else went down over the past week in fantasy basketball action:

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!

Most were busted, but some were bested, it’s time to announce our Razzball Basketball Bracket Pool winner!  All hail Anthony and his “Is this real?” bracket!  At least I’m assuming it’s a he…  I don’t think Casey Anthony is doing Razzball Bracket Challenges!  With 142 points, they crushed the bracket, getting 12 of the sweet 16 teams, including all 8 from the right side of the bracket.  Then as several did, had the final game correct, and “bah bah bah bah, bum bum bum, bah bah bah…!” [Chapel hill fight song] of course got the Tar Heels right winning it all.  So did I!  But my bracket was pure Scheiße otherwise, still got 6th out of our 57 entries though!

Congrats to Anthony, and to claim your $50 Amazon Gift Card, shoot me a dime – [email protected]  Thanks to everyone for playing in the Bracket Challenge this year, and let’s keep growing our Razzball Pool for years to come!

Well, despite my best efforts and a dominant regular season, I fell short in the semis in my run to finally get one of these golden things…  Stupid Clippers and their 5 games!  I had a huge Finals week as well to win 3rd place in the consolation game, but it was little…  consolation.

Anywho, congrats to our new REL Champion – Hard-N-Tha-Paint!  A well-deserved victory from the the 4 seed entering the playoffs – topping a strong year from (former RCL championHigh as Greg Kite – assembling a strong, deep team to bring home the gold jersey.  I fell to Paint in my semis loss in a bad 8-1 defeat, but it would’ve been a neck-and-neck 5-4 loss to them in the Finals, only losing by 2 treys.  And I had someone injured I would’ve streamed, just needed one extra ThrAGNOF and a different opp in the semis, and it coulda happened…  Well, woudla-coulda-shoulda for me, but didda-gotta-golden jersey for Tha-Paint!  Great season from both of these owners to make it through the grueling season to get the title, and without further ado, here’s our new graphic immortalizing their season!

Here’s how the Finals went down in the REL:

1617-rcl-logoIt’s time to hand out some hardware!  Drop the confetti, grab your Star Wars gold medallions, polish off R2D2, and queue the trumpets, because…  The UNC Tar Heels are National Champions!  Wooooooo!  Man, what a season from the Heels… My terrible bracket in the Razzball Pool had the final game right, so I still ended respectable!  More on that later…

Anywho (as my ADD takes over and buries the lead), the 2016-17 RCL Champion is…  The Doc is In!  Besting the WE-GOT-A-TROPHY! with a 117-52-2 regular season record, the Doc got a trophy indeed!  Led by the all-around superstars of Kawhi Leonard, Otto Porter, and of course the tripdub machine Elfrid Payton, the Doc will forever live in infamy, and is our newest member of the RCL Hall of Fame!  Long live The Doc!

With the first place finish (as detailed in the Sign-Ups post), The Doc will get a $50 Amazon gift card, plus an amazing Shaming Video that we’ll work out.  Ugh, I dunno if I’m ready for this again!  And not to be overlooked, 2nd overall finisher A Very Solid Team in the Philzilla’s Pac Coast Razzer league has secured a $20 Amazon gift card.  Both you guys reach out to me at [email protected] to claim your prizes, and Doc, go easy on me with the eating challenge ideas!

Be sure and check back with us in September, for your shot to join legends High as Greg Kite, Akron LebronsNick is Razzy, and now The Doc is In for your shot at RCL infamy in 2017-18!

You can take a final look at the RCL standings updated on our Standings Page, and here’s a breakdown of all of our 23 RCL Champs, in order of how they finished by reg. season record:

The H2H season is in the books!  Well, at least if you did a standard format, ain’t no reason to play out games the final week-and-a-half!  People getting sat with hangnails!  Even James Harden missed a game…  Say it ain’t so!

Quick scheduling note for this week.  Tomorrow we’ll announce the RCL winner, then Wednesday unveil the REL champ with their gold jersey.  We’ll catch up with the Pod either Wednesday or Thursday and some daily notes by the end of the week for you Roto-ers still trucking through to the finish line, and then start up the Way Too Early Ranks for 2017-18!  That’s what I’m excited about.  Mostly just to never see Chandler Parsons in my ranks ever again…

So who were some unlikely heroes over the championship week?  How about stupid, no good, can’t-take-a-shower-without-breaking-his-wrist Rajon Rondo just running game, and knocking me out of my one title-contending RCL.  What a joke….  10/9/9/3/0 last night against the Pels, giving him a 42/29/30/8/1 line over the Thur/Sat/Sun 3-games-in-4 nights stream if you used him in the Finals.  Who woulda thought my death knell would’ve been made by Rondo…  Eh well, baseball is here at least!  Here’s what else went down over the weekend in fantasy basketball action:

If you recognize this picture, then you’ll certainly understand the title.  If you don’t, then how dare you call yourself a basketball fan… Also, you should check out Vince Carter in the 2000 slam dunk contest.

We have reached my final recap of the season.  It has been a long journey.  We have laughed and cried, we have shouted and groaned, but most of all, we have experienced the deep love of fantasy basketball that transcends us all.  For the good times we’ve had, I thank you.  For those who have offered comments, compliments, and constructive criticism, I appreciate you.  And for the haters, I say fuck you.  Wait, am I allowed to say that??? Well shit…

We start our night in Detroit, where the Pistons barely manage to edge the Nets 90-89… Let’s dive in!

Final week for most leagues.  It’s that one time of the fantasy season when it doesn’t matter who you’d drop (unless it’s a keeper/dynasty), ‘coz if you’re still managing your team, then it must be playing for something.

In my opinion, the moves available this week is very limited unless one of your top guys encounter an injury or team setup is where you have 2+ guys playing for the teams not playing on Friday and/or Sunday.  This is because there are 11 games that will be played on those days.  So really if you haven’t streamed on Thurs, you really probably want to load up for Saturday’s slate especially if the players’ last game for the week is Friday or Saturday (MIN, LAC, DET, ORL, POR, SAC).

So for today, I’ll only focus on Saturday’s games.  Tad anti climactic being the final edition of this series for this fantasy season.
