You guessed it. We are halfway through the Fantasy season. Week 12 of 23. The mid-point. 50% done. I gather you get it, so I won’t continue to belabour the point. If you’re in a keeper league, now’s the time to figure out if you’re going for it this year, and if so, you might think about the risk/reward trades a little more. Will Marc Gasol get back to form, is he a buy low(er) candidate? Or, if you find yourself hopelessly buried from a Felton/Nash/Kobe/Tyson early gut-punch, you may want to sell for draft picks. Decisions, decisions. Alas, the Razzball Commenter Leagues are of the redraft variety, so the only motivator is GLORY! And to see the most Glorious of them all, Check out the master standings.

Shall we take a look at how these Inglorious Bastards are fairing at the halfway point?

JB’s Random Commenter League. This was a hard fought week for the JB 1. Nobody ran away with their week, but like in Sean Connery reminded us in the Highlander, there can be only one. This week that one was Baby Got Back, beating Dunkin’ Donuts by a score of 6-2. As Of Week 12, King James still sits atop the overall throne, with a 67-41-0 score. And yes, I know, there can be more than one in Fantasy basketball, but I defy you to not think of Sean Connery’s impeccable Spanish accent he donned.

All Country Ball Club.  My man, Greg Kite, he be high, knowhutimsayn? But High as Greg Kite isn’t a mellow, “let’s order a pie, bro” kinda kush-er. Last week his elevation was at a Biggies Smalls anger level, laying the smack down on poor Moskow Spartakers 8-1. All Spartaker asked him was if he was gonna eat that last twinkie, and Greg went off. High as Greg Kite’s twitchy trigger finger has him sitting in first overall, with a score of 75-32-1. King Kong has nothing on him, Greg asked me to inform you all.

JB’s Random Commenter League 2.  The deuce never fails to entertain. This week was no different, and I do believe this league has set a precedent: 5 of the 6 matches were won 6-3, with the last one just missing, finishing 5-4. If Cronos’ Crazy Team had just put up 20 more points for the week, all 6 matches would have been won 6-3. Way to screw it up Cronos. The winners last week were: JB Gilpin-Human, Carmelo Me Maybe, Slippery Squirrels, and Durant’s World. The last winner was the goofball who put up the emoji of a dude flipping the double bird as his team name. The overall leader for the deuce is Durant’s World, with an overall score of 69-36-3.

Razzball League 3 the Ringers.  The ringers league has two ringers this week. Beeeenga, and Team Tough Guy Town beat Whatup Whoadie, and Champagnezees, respectively, by a score of 7-2. This keeps Team Tough in a tie for  the overall lead with The New Day Co-Op, both boasting a score of 68-38-2. Good parody in this league, only 9 points separate first and seventh. Ringers indeed.

Razzball Hardwood Classic.  Ahh, another 7-1 victory for Smooth Like Butter, beating Chump Change. If you read my reviews on the RCL – and there should be no compelling reason at all to – you would know that I have in the past compared a 7-1 win to a vegan Tofurkey soup. I can think of nothing to add to that tasty dish, other than to point out that Foot’s Flight Crew is the classic’s supreme leader, by a dominating 74-33-1.

The Double Bonus Fan League.  SlickPunn did his best American History X boot-stomp impression on tragic, simple Spencer’s Super Team, cracking out an 8-1 win. Nasty. With his show of intimidating show of force, Slick stays atop the Double Bonus, with an overall score of 72-34-2. Just remember Slick, rulers never retire, they are taken out. watch your back, son.

Ok, good to be back, I hope all your wishes come true. See you all in the second half!

      @Daniel Miller: Maybe Blatche or Gerald Green are expendable, but both are hot right now, and with Bled likely out for the season, I expect Green to get solid minutes. In short, stick with what you’ve got, it’s a good line up. You could think of doing a bigger trade, like your 2 for their 1, but only if it suits your needs.

    Hey Dan. thanks again to you and the rest of razzball. you guys seriously rock.

    would trading my burke and kobe for lance stephenson sound fair to you? i picked up kobe off waivers just for trading leverage.

    here’s my team:
    lowry, kobe, wall, tyrke evans, reddick, chalmers, oladipo, burke, mo williams.
    dwight, AD, robin lopez, favors.

      @Kevin: I would definitely do that deal. I might not accept that deal if it was proposed to me, FYI, but give it a whirl.

    Hey buddy.. Real quick if your around anytime soon. I picked up Josh McRoberts and he’s been doing real good lately. Should I grab Derrick Williams for him or just hold off?? Or Taj Gibson??

      @Frank White: hold on to McBob while he’s hot.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Yeah I’ve been loving him but do you think he can keep it up for a ROS guy or do you think Taj has that upside?? I kinda need blocks but Taj don’t give 3’s and ass like he does. Plus FT%..

          @Frank White: no, I would hold onto him for now.

    Wut up Dan, so I see an opportunity for sum possible buy lows that can possibly be huge in the 2nd half, but still unsure, there’s this cat that owns both Wade/Gay was thinking about offering up West/Gordon or maybe even a little more like a Lopez or Jonas to acquire them, and im pretty sure this guy wants to get rid of them..thoughts? Thanks

      @Aj: I would do that deal, based on what you’re giving up. But the reason someonw would be willing to trade talent like that if due to the frustration they cause. Buyer beware.

    Hey Danny Wutup!! Would you trade Rondo for Augustin if you had Rondo?? If Augustin is starting all season then his numbers would be better. When I traded Jameer Nelson for Rondo I never realized Rondo can’t score much or FT%, FG% or 3′s. What you think??

      @Frank White: When you traded for Rondo, presumably you knew you would have to wait for him to shake off the rust. You would be selling at his absolute lowest point. I know you’re impatient, so do what makes you feel most comfortable, but he couldn’t be any less valuable than at this moment. DJ is a waiver pick-up, who admittedly is producing at this moment, but he’s not worth too much. So decide, but don’t bitch about Rondo if he’s killing it in a month :).
