The Razzball Commenter Leagues are about set. The original RCL got wet, spawned slime cocoons, and are waiting to hatch and take over the city as we speak. The details of the leagues were posted last week. Click this link, or search for the post the old fashioned way. Smoke signaled Morse code? Not quite that old fashioned.

We’re going to run this league similarly to how we’ve run both Razzball baseball and football. We’ll start with three leagues of 12 and adjust accordingly after that.  Each league has an organizer.  The duties of the organizer will be to accept 11 other people into the league, and set it up at ESPN at the most conducive draft time and during the season post league updates in the standings.  Just choose one of the organizers from the three RCLs (listed below) and contact them.  If we don’t get enough to fill the leagues, we’ll combine them. And then I’ll project my disappointment onto all of you for not getting your friends involved. Then I’ll feel bad about freaking out on you, because, really, you’re a great group of people who didn’t deserve my attitude. Then I’ll send you an Edible Arrangement and we’ll be good because people love eating pineapple slices made to look like tulips.

We’re aiming to have all the drafts completed by December 23. Posted along with the organizers, are the dates and times of the draft. Go ahead and sign up according to which draft is most convenient for you to participate in a live snake draft. Once the organizer has a full league, he’ll alert me and I’ll close it off.

If you haven’t already, leave a comment if you’re interested in playing (do this in addition to signing up so I can keep track of when we need to open a new 12-man league. As soon as one league closes, we’ll open another). If you want to be an organizer – and we could use at least two more! – leave that in the comments as well. Also, Razzball hoops is Tweetering. We invite you to join in and skip to our loo as we’ve stepped up the tweet game a ton in the last six months and we’re hoping it’s more entertaining for our followers now. You be the judge.

    I will admit when I woke up to rush to my computer(knocking over my one year old) this morning. I was hoping to see the top 20 for SG’s and a post about the RCL opening up. If you could see me you would see a :(

    @DWRlovesKAR_OLR: Ha! I got you half-covered. That counts for something, right? (approximately 50 percent, I believe). Go ahead and e-mail Chris (if you haven’t already about joining the Shimmy). Top 20 SG are coming up tomorrow. For now, here’s a little preview: Dwyane Wade made the cut.

    @Adam – Drafting 1st in 12 team H2H/Roto. Last year from number one I took Durant and ended up with ‘Reak and Horford on the 24-25 turn after watching all the elite PG fly off the board (ending in 9th place). This year I’m going with LBJ and hoping that Eric Gordon, Wall or Nash are available next. Which 2 out of the 3 do you like with LeBron? Thanks!

    @Sol: I’d like to. Lord knows it’s a helluva resource. I won’t likely have time to do it myself, but if anyone out there takes the initiative to create them, I’ll put ‘em up on the site and pump it hard on Twitter.

    @Jon: Cool. Thanks.

    @AnotherFalstaff: I kinda like Nash a little more than Wall and Gordon because of those threes and percentages.

    Hey Adam,

    In an 18 team, 9 cat H2H what’s your auction strategy? Reach for two multi-cat studs and then wait for value? Wait and load up on the $20-$30 players?

    Joining the Chili Shimmy.

    Will you be participating in NBA fanduel games as well this year?

    @Jon: Generally the former option, but it kinda depends on the specifics of each league.

    @the Real KG: Probably not. Though I can be convinced.

    I emailed Chris. I’ll get down with the Chili Shimmy League.

    Looks like i didn’t make the cut for the Shimmy league. Can’t draft on the 18th, any other league opening up?

    Where is the special league you were talking about? I haven’t received any information about it?

    I was one of the top 15 guys last season, with team name as With a bad back.

    @THC: Still a possibility, but haven’t received enough e-mails from last year’s top finishers.

    I would love to play in a RCL league. Any spots open?

    @MR T: We’re opening a new league in the next day or two. Just organizing a few last pieces. Keep an eye out. We’ll make an announcement.

    @Adam: A fourth league was opened and closed within six hours. If you’ve e-mailed, Tweeted, or left a comment requesting a spot, I’ve recorded it and an invitation to the fourth league is coming up shortly.

    If you contacted me after 1 pm (EST), I’m working on finding a fifth commissioner to open up another league, as I suspect we’ll have more interested people trickling in for the rest of the week.

    Hi adam,
    I finished high enough last year to qualify for the champions league, and I didn’t remember until today that there was actually going to be fantasy basketball this year. can i still be invited to that champions league, or am i too late? my fantasy name was either joniuscaesar pham or jonny rancher (can’t remember).

    I would be fine with being the commissioner of the fifth league if you don’t have anyone lined up already.

    @cam: Unfortunately, all our leagues are closed. We’re hoping to start another group of mid-season leagues in early February.
