So, I can safely say that we all are feeling a little over indulged this week.

At times like theses, I simultaneously applaud the invention of jogging/sweat wear, and it’s practical comfort, while also making note of the most ironic departure from a genre of garment’s original intended use. Who ever sweats while joggging in this stuff anymore? Maybe everyone, but seeing as I’m not out jogging, in these garments, or anything else, I guess I can’t really be so smug about it. And this applies to some of our early leaders in the Razzball RCLs, you shouldn’t be so damn smug either, after last week 5. Are you true contenders, or sweat wear? Let’s take a look:

**The master standings are now up!  Check out how you’re stacking up against all RCL teams here, or hover over “Leagues” to check in with the standings updated weekly**

JB’s Random Commenter League Smackdown. Bitchslap. Whuppin. Ass Kicking. Grandma. I don’t know how to say it more creatively. Donna’s Mate laid the boots to his opponent, Dunking Donuts, with a 9-0 shellacking. Even the name, Donna’s Mate, strikes fear into his opponent. While Donna’s mate was able to climb the leader ladder, the top spot belongs to Baby Got Back. And thanks to 3 separate trades, involving 7 players, GP Gilpin was able to squeak out a win, 5-4.

All Country Ball ClubThe rich get richer, as High as Greg Kite, and Wrong Side of 30 both win their week with a score of 7-2, beating Polskie Murarze, and Mountain Dew Kid, respectively. With the win, High as Greg Kite retains the overall pole position. While the team names are creative, this does not trickle down to transaction creativity, as there is none thus far in this league.

JB’s Random Commenter League 2. In a League identified as #2, there is one #2 that reigns supreme. And that man is RazzleDazzle2, winning his week with a score of 6-3. There were other winners, who beat out their opponents but 6-2, but nothing so conclusive as RazzleDazzle2. And it doesn’t work for my description. Although when I think about it, I guess technically a tie in a category would equate a better week than RD2. Sorry, Dazzle, even when you win, you’re number 2. So the true winners are: Dan’s Dandy Team and Hobo Head Lice. All of the winners are down on the leaderboard, with Slippery Squirrels in top spot.

Razzball League 3 the Ringers.  The New Day Co-Op won the week with a decisive 8-1, pushing Green Street EliteSin City Sinners hold top spot overall with a score of 30-15, and while Drunk on Homebrew also holds the same overall score, he must settle for second, as the Sinners hold the tie-breaker.

Razzball Hardwood Classic Just like in Last Tango in Paris, The Mayo Clinic slipped it to Smooth like Butter, roughly taking last week by a score of 8-1. Foot’s Flight Crew is on top with a score 33-12. Sexy Sex is the subtext here, people.

The Double Bonus Fan League SlickPunn was the weekly winner, beating Kawhi Five-Oh by 7-2. The overall supreme leader title belongs to Draft Dodgers who boast a 31-13-1 record.

 

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. See you next week!

    I currently have Duncan that has been playing really well of late, would you trade him for Ryan Anderson or keep Timmy? Thanks

      @Aj: Hmm. I keep flip flopping here. Anderson has been murdering it since his return, but Tim is an all time great. In the end, I would say that you do the trade, because AD is out for the Pelicans, So Anderson should get more time, and Pop will manage Tim’s minutes, and he is 38, after all. But you may well end up with egg on your face, Every year folks say that this is the year that Duncan slows/breaks down, and he hasn’t yet. But you can console yourself in the fact that you’re not trading for a bum.

    Dan man,
    I followed your suggestion picking up Jason Smith by dropping Amir, and then quickly turned Smith+Jordan Carwford into Bogut. Now I should pick up a GF to address 3s and steal while a bit assists would be nice, too. Slim picking: Pierce or McLemore ROS? Thanks in advance!

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:

      @quintero: that’s a good evolution. Too bad Amir finally went off for a decent game last night. But no matter, he hasn’t shown any consistancy, you made the right move.
      As to your g/f, I have to say Macklemore, Pierce is out with an injury for a few weeks. But slim pickings indeed. Is Francisco Garcia available? He’s getting burn because Parsons is out. a better choice than Macklemore, IMO.

    What do you think about dropping J.R. Smith? He is killing me in FG% and has been mediocre the rest of the way. I was looking to add someone like Taj Gibson, DeMarre Carroll, or Wes Johnson. My team is in the bottom half at FG% and FT%(drummond), and pretty average the rest of the way around. Should I just hold on to him or should I cut my ties while I’m still ahead…

    • Dan A

      @Dominic: I hear you. JR is not performing up to snuff. I say you wait a bit, but I understand if you feel you can’t. So frustrating, but his knee is bothering him, and it shows. Plus the losing is making all the knicks play selfish, and force shots.
      Of the 3 you mention, I would take Taj, I guess.

    Hey Dan,

    i’m dropping derrick williams for someone who can give me more some more 3pts, assists, and steals. who do you think would be best to pick up? alec burks, francisco garcia, or jodie meeks? i’m also thinking about picking up michael beasley.

    • Kevin says:

      @Kevin: *or alan anderson?

      • Dan A

        Dan A says:
        (link)

        @Kevin: Risky. He’s a good blue collar guy, but he will get the start for sure for the next few weeks.

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:

      @Kevin: Garcia is a good short term get, as Parsons is out, and he’s making good on the extra minutes. But it’s not a long term injury, so watch that.

    Man looks like Terrence Jones Value is dropping with him splitting them minutes with Casspi, thinks its time to drop him, better pick up Korver who came back draining them Tres or Hinrich? Calderon, Vasquez, Martell Webster available as well.

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:

      @AJ: If you can get Korver, do it.

      • AJ says:
        (link)

        @Dan A: sweet will do, what you think about dropping Tyreke Evans for any of those Cats? He’s had some Weak back to back games, kinda wanna add Hinrich but not sure he can get 10+ assist on a consistent level

        • Dan A

          Dan A says:
          (link)

          @AJ: Hinrich will not average 9-10 dimes, but he is the starter for the Bulls, so he will get minutes, and 6-7 dimes is what you should expect from him. But Tyreke has been playing very well lately, I would suggest you hold onto him, and choose someone else. If he is the least of your performers, you’re doing well.

    hey i already asked jb this but i want your opinion, my dmc and pek for horford and pau… also, tyson chandler for my gerald henderson? thanks!

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:

      @mUshi: You’re swapping a wonky ankle for an injured ankle. Pau has practiced twice, and should be going Friday. Cousins just got a DNP due to his ankle. I like how Pau is coming on, but Boogie has been a beast. Horford for Pekovic is nice, if you can get that done on it’s own, but truthfully, their stats are pretty similar, Pek just annoys me that for one of the biggest specimens in the NBA, he doesn’t get more blocks. I say stick with Cousins.
      I know Gerald is stinking it up lately, but he had a good game last night, and Tyson is still a ways away from returning. Also, He broke his leg, dude. Don’t expect Chandler to be a world beater for at least 1-2 weeks after he does finally come back. I would hold off on that deal as well, IMO.

    Sup Dan… I”M gonna drop Nate R cause I got my games out of him but I need assists and steals n 3′s will help. Should I grab Blake again or do you think he’s not going to play?? If I can’t grab him then you got any early names on the buy list you could hook me up with cause I have to grab a guy for tomorrow today..? Lol

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:

      @Frank White: Get Blake if you can, or if not, try Aaron Brooks, or even Randy Foye.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        good looks.. I’m hoping Marvin Williams and Paul Millsap are going to play tomorrow cause that would kill me!! Do you have any inside info on them?? Lol

    Hey man… I was offered B Lopez and teague for my drummond and hayward. Do you think i should do it?

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Robert: I wouldn’t. Lopez is always close t being injured, just came back from one, Brooklyn is a mess, and while Teague is an emerging star, so is Drummond, despite his awful FT%. Hayward also no slouch. Basically it’s not enough along with Teague to make it a good offer

  9. teeque says:

    Do you like Pat Bev more than Middleton with Middleton starting now? His stat seams better.

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @teeque: If you need 3pts, he’s clearly hot in that cat. Other than that, he has “meh’ stats. What you’re gaining in 3pts, nominally more points, you’re losing in steals. Bev even gets more blocks, and boards, so depends on your needs.

    Sometimes I feel like a couple of my players are, what do you guys call it if i’m using it right, THRagnofs. If it means that lower value players are getting the same numbers as a high caliber or valued player gets. Like Carmello.. Sometimes I feel like trading him for 2 lower valued players that get the same stats as him. Do you agree or am I wrong??

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Frank. Dude. You are too impatient. Carmelo is a perennial potential scoring leader. The team is in a swoon right now, and to trade him now would be trading at his lowest value. He was a beast last night, enjoy that. Diluting your talent is never a good move, unless you’re addressing a complete lack of depth, or specific needs. Keep your panties on, and don’t trade Melo unless the deal is of good value, meaning first round value, and nobody will give you fair value at this moment.
