The 2013-14 RCL season is in the books, and congratulations to High as Greg Kite!  Great, now I have to shave that into my head… Ugh!  Which sucks because I’m tall too.  People are going to think it’s some statement or something…  I really hate I made this the grand prize!  Of course Greg also wins a championship jump suit and Razzball T-shirt as we went over in the launch.  And second place Slippery Squirrels also gets a T-shirt as well.  Huzzah for prizes!  Updated in the Master Standings are the league champions in bold, but High as Greg Kite went in the #1 RCL team, and came out with the league title and overall RCL Championship as well.  You two lucky winners shoot me a comment or e-mail (jb at razzball.com) to claim thy prizes (well, I have yours Squirrels).  And I’ll post the video of my haircut and public shaming sometime over the summer, but it will be done sooner rather than later.  Here’s how the rest of the leagues shook out:

The Razzball Elite League has it’s first champion!  And not to spoil who won the inaugural year, but I think a certain Razzball staff member might finally be able to shave!  Congratulations to Slim for winning the REL league and keeping some respect for our staff players in the league.  Pete Nice had injuries and I had awfulness!  Tough hurtles to overcome in 20-teamers.  So without any more ado, Slim and his opponent weigh in on their thoughts of the season and the championship battle:

Final Four is here, finally. Not that one, Pffft. The Random Commenter League Final four. Each league is down to the semis. Bye weeks are done. Let’s dance! Who’s the champ gonna be? Not this fella, that’s for certain. This will be this year’s last article for me, so let me say that is was an honour compiling information for you guys that you could have easily looked up yourself. We laughed, we cried, we all grew up just a little bit, and I hope you enjoyed. As always, remember that the RCL champ will be whomever wins their league, along with the best season record, so the master standings are set , as the regular season is done. But for those of you still in the fight, let’s see who whupped whom:

JB - Welcome to the first annual 2013-2014 NBA Razzies!  A celebration and a spectacle of everything that went wrong for fantasy owners in the 2013-2014 NBA season.  We opened polls for fantasy owners to submit their votes on deserving nominees, and the tallies are in, the nominees are here, there really isn’t a more spectacular night for NBA fans, is there Slim?

Slim - That’s right JB, the entire Sydney Opera House is teeming with excitement as we welcome in the nominees, celebrities… I just talked with Jack Nicholson a moment ago, so glad he could make it out to support his Lakers.

JB - You know, I was surprised we could book this at the Sydney Opera House – -

Slim - Don’t doubt the straws I can pull in my native country!

Awkward Silence

We all knew it would come, but, like your winter religious holiday of choice, it’s finally here! And if you had the steam to make the finish line, well done. It was a great regular season, ladies and gents, but now the REAL season begins. And we hope you enjoy the playoff run. If you’re like me, you lost your first round pick, Kyrie Irving to a biceps strain, and he will effectively be out for the playoffs.  So I’m at a real disadvantage. But this isn’t about me, entirely! There were some photo finishes last week in the Razzball Random Commenter Leagues. Lets take a look as to how it all shook out!

The regular season hath ended!  The final regular season standings are below in our inaugural Razzball Elite league with one Razzball staffer making the postseason.  We’re hitting .333!  Dammit, everyone is shifting over to baseball…  The office is eagerly cheering on Slim to keep the title within our cubicle walls.  Maybe Grey will give us corner offices if we get this one!  But probably not…  The playoff schedule is below with reactions from Slim and I and happy dynasty-ing-ing-ing this year!

This is it. It’s go time. Play your angry music, and paint that Mike Singletary look of intensity on your mug. I suggest you give yourself the “This is what we play for” football speech. We are lining the last few weeks of NBA fantasy, and those of you on the bubble, you have precious little time to make it in. And to you just mentioned, I hope the NBA gods are smiling on you. Let’s see what action played out in the Random Commenter Leagues. And don’t forget, you can always check where you are in the master standings.

With week 19 wrapping up in the Razzball Elite league, that means it’s it!  Fin!  One week left of the regular season.  Wait, that means it’s not done then… Well it is for me!  Hah, it has been for a while, I’m a week early with this intro!  Only one matchup remains in the regular season to finally round out our six playoff contenders.  Slim’s squad has been dirty for a while (I was ahead of him about a third of the way through!), and just put the icing on a 9-0 cake.  I think it’s the only 9-0 win all season!  Reactions from a few owners below, including Slim who can now walk around his native Outback as a fearless domineering warrior:

With the fantasy playoffs so close, I always start to worry about the health of my players.  And, I must admit, I have to resist the urge to tinker with my squad. If you learn anything from my mistakes, gentle readers, I do hope it is the following: do NOT mess with your line up while intoxicated! I woke up this morning to discover I had dropped 2 players to pick up 2 additional Bucks, adding Ersan Ilyasova, and Khris Middleton. I already had John Henson. That’s a lot of venison. Yeesh. Some of the RCL league players may be feeling like their roster is a bit gamey as well. Let’s see how everyone fared this past week, and be sure to see where you rank in the master standings:
