It’s the most.  Wonderful.  Time.  Of the year!  Yeah, some legit winter wonderland going on up north, sheesh you guys must be excited to be snowed in and watch nothing but basketball the next few nights!

With the playoffs abreast, it’s time to start thinking about those payouts and get paid that money!

Hah, I can’t stop laughing at that silly GIF!  Effin hilarious.  And by money, I mean some Amazon gift cards and another YouTube shaming video, but you can’t really put a price on the latter!

With the regular season now in the books, the 2016-17 RCL Master Standings Table table is now locked in place as we play out the postseason.  Despite a hell of a final push from The Doc is In – going 22-5 over the final 3 weeks – Big Baby’s Lovechild secured the #1 spot through the regular season by a mere half point.  What a close race!  But it’s of course anyone’s game, as the top teams still need to secure their league championship to win the overall title.  So check out where your squads stacked up in the master standings, and here’s some highlights across our 23 RCL Leagues:

JB vs. Slim Year 3 – All bow down to Big Baby’s Lovechild!  Finishing 117-51-3, 237 RCL points were just enough to edge out the top spot through the regular season, and now it’s in the hands of Slim and co. to oust Big Baby Jr. from the title.  Ugh, this was the only stupid league where I didn’t make the playoffs, finishing 7th, and with a winning record!  I hate everything!

WE-GOT-A-TROPHY! – We almost got a redonk comeback is what we got!  The Doc is In went ham over the final 3 weeks, but came up just 1 RCL point – 0.5 games – short of Big Baby Jr. for the #1 spot.  But of course, the RCL title could easily go to the Doc if Big Baby can be knocked out of the playoffs.  Do it Slim!  Do it!

EmasculatingThroatLozenges RCL – Our only other RCL team to finish north of 230 points, Brad’s Awkward Team wrapped up a strong season going 115-55-1 for 231 RCL pts.  Way to be so awkward!  Being as awkward as Andris Biedrins at the FT line!

Kap vs. Razzball Round 2 – Falling to 9th overall, The Handsome Lads have turned ugly during the stretch run!  We can entirely chalk it up to losing Kyle Lowry and week from Vucevic, but there’s still a chance, you devilishly good looking lads, you!

JB’s RCL 3: “RCL Harder” – One of the closest chances I’ve had at contending for an overall RCL title, my JB Harder! Weird… squad comes in at 10th, but seems like I’m way outside looking in.  Ya never know, maybe I can be hard enough!  Damn, losing the final week 3-5-1 really hurt…  If I put together a big performance, and I coulda been right in the 5-6 range!  Who screwed this up for me?!  Ugh, one game from George Hill, a slippery court taking a game from The Omen, and stupid Wizards benching Gortat and the Ten Foot Pole shooting 40% from the stripe last week.  Stupid Gortat!  Never touching you with a ten foot pole ever again!

 

Let me know how you did/are doing in your RCL leagues, and if you didn’t make the postseason, hopefully you enjoyed the 16-17 RCLs!  As always, if you have any feedback for next season, lemme know!  Good luck in Round 1, Razzball Nation!

    Losing Lowry was such a bummer. I’ll have to get by on looks, charm, and shrewd FA moves from here on out.

      @Clyde Prompto: Yeah I had a Lowry/Embiid team. Was a sexy team for a while! Shrewd it up man!

    Well, for it being my very first RCL league, I went out and got the #10 spot.

    Chalking it up as a win for today, folks. Too bad I could never catch up to those Lads all season long.

      @GregorV: Hah could’ve been much worse! Yeah RCL leagues are tough, Slim is looking at winning another $250 dues league, while struggled in the RCLs , its crazy!

    What…now I need to win my title…I thought this was it…ahhhh more work! I feel like I’ve just run a marathon and now you’ve told me to run another couple of miles.

    Oh and it feels so odd to see you cheering for Slim publicly (it was JB vs Slim right, not JB cheers Slim)…hoping Zubac can lead me to glory but there are some teams flying right now who are going to be tough to beat.

    12-team, h2h, 9-cat. Yo JB!

    So as part of my neurotic tinkering, I dropped R-Jax for Brogdon. I know, I know. It was a sudden clunker last night for R-Jax! (Well, he’s had clunkers in almost every other game). And Brogdon is subject to Jason Kidd! (FU Kidd, but somehow Brogdon still does ok).

    I originally added R-Jax because he had more games this week, but I’m on an unexpected bye, and next week Brogdon gives me one more game, and we’ve all had our fantasy seasons come down to Sunday. Also, unlike R-Jax, Brogdon can be a keeper for me at an 11th round price, which isn’t nothing if Kidd ever stops screwing around.

    So. We ok with that move (it’s done, so I guess it’s dumb to ask…)?

    And, more importantly, would you rather have McConnell than Brogdon? He has the same keeper price and same number of games next week.

      @Not Your Average Joe: Hahaha yeah well not too surprised as the Cavs just dominated that game. Good point on the games and possible keeper aspect though, that does make it a little more interesting. As a keeper, I like Brogdon more though, Sixers are almost definitely getting a PG in the draft and gonna start em outta the gate. Don’t love losing Rjax, but don’t hate it either.

        @JB Gilpin:

        It was a tough call. But ultimately, Brogdon’s keeper aspect, and his extra game next week, made the decision for me right now. I thought both guys are close enough in performance that an extra game was sort of key. Also, I pretty much had no one else to drop.

      @JB Gilpin: thanks for the link, didn’t even know there [email protected]Scott: i’ve still got
      to get past slim and a few others, you may not need that point!

      Great end of season three weeks to catch up the gap. Made me work hard in the last week for a 7-1 win.

        @Scott: @Big Baby’s Lovechild: Hah you’re def in the thick of things Mr. Doc!

        Yeah man it’s tough to win the whole thing bc you have to kinda sell out for reg season wins AND be sure youre set for the playoffs

    I’m seriously considering dropping CoJo for Ulis. Joseph just doesn’t produce enough because DeRozan is an effin ball hog and kills ball rotation. Jeez

    • Shahed says:

      @Dante Green: Make that move.

        @Dante Green: @Shahed: Yeah absolutely, you have to. I think he commented this before we knew E Bled would be shut down, but now that we know that, have to swap the two

        @JB Gilpin:

        @Shahed:

        Hah. Yea, funny when I asked this there wasn’t still any news about Bled getting shut down. Lol. Anyway, just got Ulis for 2 dollars, I have 3 suns on my team now (Big Sauce and Matrix 2.0). I get the feeling that if the Suns see Ulis as a possible long term point guard, Bledsoe coule be shipped out next year or before the next season starts. Haha

          @Dante Green: Hah nice! Yeah I have 2 big sauce and chriss teams too, I might have gotten Ulis on one of those too! Mehhhh, I dunno, Ulis is kinda temporary I think, solid backup PG for them next year
