It’s Week 2, and things are just warming up. The leagues are starting to show some separation. Some with pure dominance, others with smoke and mirrors. Let us begin:

 

 

JB’s Random Commenter League.  The league leader, Baby got Back, was overtaken by Handsome Lads, who also won his week, going 8-1, and sits in first with 15-3. Baby got Back also sits at 15-3, so I’m sensing a rivalry taking shape… JB Gilpin, clearly dissatisfied with his team, made 2 trades that involved numerous players on his roster. All for naught, though, as he still lost his week, posting a 3-6 week, and currently sits 10th of 12. Our fearless editor will, no doubt, totally redeem himself in the coming weeks. We hope.

All Country Ball ClubWe should all aspire to be As High as Greg Kite, who won his week with a dominant week 2, going 8-1, and sits high at number 1 overall with a lighter than air record of 14-3-1. It appears there are no panic trades so far, as 2 weeks have gone by without a transaction. Solid. And Just because it’s dope, I make an honourable mention of team name, Heinrich Maneuver.  That’s how you bring the creative double entendre name, folks!

JB’s Random Commenter League 2. Number 2 Commenter League, but Number 1 in our hearts, we are affirmed of a simple truth. Royal Flush beats a Douche, going 6-3 in week 2, and sits in first overall with a record of 12-6. That is, Royal Flush took down a fella who could be a fantastic guy, who maybe even gives to charity, and donates blood to orphanages, but since he elected to go with a symbol/emoji of a face flipping the double bird for his team name, he can not be named, and hither to will be called Monsieur LeDouche.

Razzball League 3 the Ringers. The Ringers league is a tight race, with only 4 points separating 1st and 7th. Currently The Akron Chosen Ones are in the lead, with an overall score of 13-5, but Larry Moses and Team Tough Guy Town also have the same record. Week one winner, Beeeenga, in a bold move, gave up on young big man, Jonas Valanciunas, in a trade that netted him George Hill. In a vacuum, I believe that JV was the better of the two talents, but Beeeenga was woefully light on PG, and had to give to get, I gather.

Razzball Hardwood ClassicOne day, soon, I will be able to announce that Pippen Ain’t Easy won his week. But not this week. So I award him an Honourary “slick name” award. That talent is being wasted on the bench, son! As for the actual winner, it came in the form of Foot’s Flight Crew, going 7-2 this week to take the overall lead, 15-3.

The Double Bonus Fan LeagueThe Draft Dodgers went a respectable 6-2, to take an overall lead of 14-3-1. Dikembe Says No deserves honourable mention as well, that team name made me laugh. Perhaps due to taking my advice to see what shakes out before blowing up their teams, there have been no trades so far.

 

Well, that’s all you need to know from the world of Razzball Random Commenter Leagues. May I suggest that a little smack talk takes place in the comments below, to generate some friendly rivalry? Should you partake, keep it clean and clever. No need to post: “you Suck, JB!” dozens of times. His records speak for themselves [editor's note - I can put smack talk in the post itself, Danny Boy!  You suck! You SUCK! twice seemed appropriate for you, I'm not a monster...].

    Owner of The Handsome Lads here. I’m afraid JB’s climb up the standings will have to wait another week. I think at the end of the year and we’ll look back and realize that this was the week that Steve Blake’s MVP campaign really took off.

    Pierce vs Sac
    JJ Hickson vs LAL
    Beverley vs PHI

      @Frank White: Hey Frankie, I would say that Chandler is the biggest risk to underperform, it’s his first game back, they will limit his minutes.

        @Dan A.: sorry, sent that off before I was done. I’ll say keep Beverly and Pierce in, I also like Manu, but my gut says the first two. Hope it works for you.

          They say Beverley might be sick… No hickson?

            @Frank White: didn’t see that, but he was listed as sick against the raps, and still started 2 days ago. JJ is fine, too.

            • Dan A

              @Dan A.: Frank. Go and see if John Henson is available. If he is, nab him! That team is full of injured players, he will do very well in the short term.

    Good reads the last few weeks! love it.

    hey would u accept a Isaiah Thomas for DeRozen trade?
    Both are kinda question marks but meh I dont like betting on anything raptors
    thought id ask u!

      @Moez: You are right to not trust the Raps, I don’t know what that team is. They are the best offensive boarding team in the league so far, one of the best second chance point teams, but horrible shooting %. That said, Demar will play a lot more than IT2, nobody will push him for playing time, and he has the green light to shoot. A lot. I guess it depends which stats you need more help in. DD could give you the odd 30+ point game night, and he’s a great FT% guy. Average boards for a 2, Bad on 3pt and shooting %.
      I would say demar by a hair. But that’s just me, not exactly a lock decision.
      Boy, I’ve said little to nothing of use. I should go into politics.

        @Dan A.: lol thanks a lot
        act what i was thinking!! perfect :D

    9 CAT roto. Who is a better fantasy player, Ibaka or Howard? Is Wade-Ilyasova too much for Ibaka or Howard?

    • Dan A

      @John:
      I would do Wade?Ilyasova for either. But, full disclosure, I don’t trust Wade’s health, and always expect him to go down. He has managed to stay healthy for a while now (going back into last year), so, thus far, I’ve had egg on my face. Still, both Forwards are fantasy beasts, and Wade doesn’t give you the stats you would get from these defensive dudes.

    DIKEMBE SAY NO here. So I scooped up Jordan Hill in my RCL this morning. My questions is how the hell was he still available after putting up 21/11 and 18/15 in his last two games? You guys taking naps with your boyfriends? Seriously though, the razzballers are a very attentive bunch so I was surprised (and thankful) he was still available. Would appreciate if you gals could continue this trend going forward

    NO NO NO NO NO NO (finger wagging)

    9 Cat Roto with 9 teams in a weekly basis. I’m last in blocks, turnovers and field goal%, below average in 3PM. So I made some changes. Do you think this one will work?

    My lineup looks like:

    PG: Westbrook
    SG: Kevin Martin
    SF: Nicolas Batum
    PF: Anthony Davis
    C: Marc Gasol
    G: Brandon Jennings
    F: Lamarcus Aldridge
    Utilities: Rubio, Ibaka, Al Jefferson

    Bench: Korver, Jose Calderon, Jonas Valanciunas, Tobias Harris, Ilyasova

    I think I can survive in steals, assists with Rubio, Jennings, Westbrook. In 3PM, I got Martin, Korver, Jose Calderon. In FT%, I think I have no problem, since all of my bigs and guards can shoot well. I purposely get all those bigs so I can increase my FG%, blocks and boards in no time, while reducing turnovers in a fast rate. What do you think? What are my weaknesses? Thanks!

    Sup Dan A… I picked up JJ Hickson for a stream and wasn’t happy.. lol but I’m looking for a long time pickup that can help me across the board, especially FG%.. Do you think I should grab Martell Webster or Lou Williams?? If Lou is gonna come back very soon that is

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:

      @Frank White: go for John Henson.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        He’s good across the board, not for just a stream??
        Also is Lou Williams any good when he’s not hurt?? Just for future reference.. lol

        • Dan A

          Dan A. says:
          (link)

          @Frank White: Lou is slated to play tonight for the first time. He will have his minutes capped, but eventually he will be good for points and 3s.

            @Dan A.: Damn it! wasn’t finished. He is definitely a good streaming option going forward.
