Happy 2017, RCLers! Sorry we’re just now updating again, lots happening in the early goings-ons of the calendar flip. Twas not my intent to have these turn into bi-weekly updates, but with things so busy, I decided to be bi-curious and see how this works until we get closer to playoff time. Not set in stone though! And I’ll be sure to run the standings every Monday either way…

In the past two weeks, we’re still all looking up at Brad’s Awkward Team! At 67-31-1, Brad has a share of the overall leader, so I guess one team is looking directly at Brad’s Awkward Team in the standings! Look out for surging The Doc is In, in the WE-GOT-A-TROPHY! league! Both squads have 67-31-1 records and 135 RCL points to set the pace for the final 9 weeks of fantasy hoop’s regular season action.

The Holidays are halfway over, we’re in that beautiful lull that is the Xmas-New Year’s Eve corridor, where if you’re going to work you’re half tuned out, and if you’re off work or school, you’re 100% focusing on fantasy hoops!  Tis the season!

And massively focusing on their RCL run is the gangly, embarrassing, just-hit-puberty Brad’s Awkward Team!  Moved to 58-23 to lead the RCL standings by a single RCL point, and ready to put the pedal to the metal in an RCL title effort.

Soooooo, a big mea culpa from your’s truly.  On top of an epicly busy weekend (is it epicly or epically?  Even online it’s hard to get a definitive answer!), I at least had an epic (no adverb!) epiphany…  Doing the RCL recap post on Fridays was just plain silly, as half of the next week had already gone by.  Due to having multi-posts dedicated on the other days, and two posts on my plate for Monday, I thought Mondays would be rough doing it then.  I mean, who wants 3 posts of “me”, and who would want the world to know I have no life and write all day on Sunday and Monday morning…  Oops!  Too late!  So we’re going to do these on Mondays now, except, well, probably not the next few Mondays…  Stupid holidays!  But earlier in the week than Friday, and on Mondays once we flip to 2017 and get through all this awful Christmas music…

We’re still all chasing Cronos’s in the Take on the Jay league, sitting pretty with a 46-16-1 record, good for 93 RCL points.  A 5 point lead on the field!  I’m going to yell at Jay, both for letting this happen, AND for my Panthers beasting his Bolts…

5 weeks down, 14 to go!  Well, 15 technically, as Yahoo smartly defaults to have the All-Star Break worked into a two-week matchup.  So 5 outta 20 means we’re 25% through the fantasy regular season!  But if that sounds like it’s going by too fast, remember how boring 1st quarters usually are in the NBA.  It’s not until the 4th or the 1st or 2nd OT (like last night) until things get interesting… That is, unless you own Kevin Love!

Through 4 weeks and halfway through week 5 and we’re still all chasing the powerhouse over at Cronos’s! 28-7-1 is our best RCL record, as the other 10 teams taking on Jay – and Jay himself – need to start banding together to keep this from a runaway. C’mon guys, we need one of you to Pass that Cro – what?! – nos’s of Narnia!

Want to hear something crazy? We’re 3.5 weeks in, and that’s about 17.5% of the fantasy regular season! In terms like that, sound the panic alarms! My crappy teams are toast!

As I mentioned on the Pod this morning, I have some RCL anger this week. Too much Goose. Goose on the loose! Ugh. But there’s still like, 82.5% of the season left, so everyone going against Goose can turn it around!

Week two has wrapped, week 3 is halfway home, and the RCL picture is starting to be drawn!  Welllll, that’s not exactly true at all.  We’re still barely scratching the surface on the NBA season!  So have no fear if you started slow, add some upside guys off the wire, and turn this baby around!  I already have a team or two that needs a full 180!

The REL season is back!  And I’m still as lazy as Brad Pitt in True Romance with paying off my YouTube bet to Nick is Razzy!  Nick, it’s coming my man!  It’s on the docket!  I have my food contest all picked out and everything…

With the season kicked off, we’re now 1.5 weeks in for our run at Hall of Fame immortality.  If you started rough, one week certainly doesn’t sink your chances at glory, and the first week of the season wasn’t even quite a full week of action…  So if you started with an L, keep your head high, and Keep Pounding!  Oh wait, that’s my real-life football team…

rcl-basketball-logoCongratulations to Nick is Razzy! Our RCL Overlord! Your name will forever live in infamy in the RCL Hall of Fame!

Now before we all bow down to Mr. Razzy, Nick, you 100% owe me for this honor. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT! As I mentioned in the regular season wrap, in the JB’s surprise RCL league, I put all my eggs into the streaming against Heat Apologist basket in the final regular season week, winning 7-2 and bringing Heat Apologist down from #1 to #4 in the overall standings. Apologist would go on to win the league, so he would’ve been the champ! Alas, my altruism to the field resulted in Nick is Razzy – the #2 overall seed – winning the overall title after picking up the championship in Khang’s RCL.

As promised in the RCL Signup post, Nick is Razzy picks up a $50 Amazon gift card, plus a JB shaming video (previous shaming videos for the 2013-14 RCL winner and 2014-15 RCL winner)! So hit me up at [email protected] and we’ll find a volume eating challenge that will almost certainly have me yack somewhere near where I live. This should be fun! Heat Apologist doesn’t go home empty handed at least, getting a $20 gift card. And well, I know you Heat Apologist, so I’ll get up with ya.

rcl-basketball-logoRCL Playoffs, baby!  Slim and I have mentioned several times on the Pod that the RCL difficulty level is sky high.  Slim had an easier time in a $250 league than the RCLs!  And we’re not saying this just to pump up your egos, Razzball Nation bee smawrt!

In our final regular season week, boy did I get a chance to play spoiler!  I faced off against #1 overall RCL team Heat Apologist in the JB’s surprise RCL, and you’re welcome alligno, Nick is Razzy, Smokin’ Fine Cubans and Big-O-Miller!  Shocked Mr. Apologist with a 6-2-1 victory bringing him down to tied-4th overall.  Of course all playoff teams are still alive in the quest for the overall RCL title, as the crown goes to the team that won their fantasy playoffs and had the best regular season record amongst the winners.  Best of luck to everyone in the playoffs, and my 4 RCL playoff teams hope to do some more spoilin’ these next 3 weeks!
