Week 17 in the Razzball Elite league has wrapped up, with Kap’s Team continuing his reign of terror over us dynasty-ers. A very hard-fought 5-3-1 against Razzball’s Slim keep him ahead while hurting Slim’s playoff aspiration. Slim thinks his playoff hopes are… slim. But they’re not!

What?! My $1 wasn’t enough to land JaVale McGee?! At least I was close… Pshhh! Nice 7-2 win for me as I trounced a dead team. La Di Dah. My season is over, with my only goal to make one last trade to help my keepers and to finish in the top 10 and over .500. Against the last place team this week should solidify my .500+ aspirations, and the rest will depend on the teams above me. I need LaMarcus and Kawhi to get healthy to be sure and finish in the top half.

I was more than a little disappointed to not get either McGee or Bazemore in the FAAB this week. Specifically Bazemore as I was waiting to grab him from the moment he got out of GS. Unfortunately he had to go and play well in his first game for the Lakers, and then get Dantonied into the starting lineupon Sunday.
Who messes with their lineups more now, the Bucks or Lakers? I think at the very least the Lakers mess with their roster more, cutting guys who were starting (and playing well) just the day before, benching guys who are playing well, starting guys one day then not the next. Insanity!
Thanks to the NBA trade deadline I had a couple of changes to my roster. The biggest one is that Arnett Moultrie looks to be a starter for Philly now. I’m not really buying the Byron Mullens hype there, but then again, as a Moultrie owner I’m bias. Gary Neal also moved at the deadline, then did me no good by missing both games last week after the deal while it was being “finalized”. Other moves that helped were Jordan Hamilton getting out of Denver and giving a little breathing room to Quincy Miller, and finally the Magic cutting Big Baby. Gotta love the 30+ minutes that just became available for Magic bigs when you own both Kyle O’Quinn and Andrew Nicholson. Here’s hoping they do something with it.
Finally, despite my team not being in the hunt for the last playoff spot, and so far not being able to play spoiler at all, it’s looking like a great battle that will go right down to the wire. Somehow Scurry has gotten himself into the hunt and it’s looking like a 3 team race. None of the 3 have a real tough matchup this week, but, next week Breaking Batum has to go up against The Nature Boy. Luckily for them, the following week has Slim against The Nature Boy, and Scurry vs Like A Josh so it all evens out in the end. Should be exciting.
