rcl-basketball-logo

[Re-posting to the top!  Last time, I promise!  We still have spots open, and would love a few final leagues to come to the RCL battlefield.  Hop on in and start up a league today!  100% free, 1,000% fun, I’m going to eat 10,000% too much!]

Chug some Pepto-Bismol, down some glasses of milk, and be sure there’s a lot of toilet paper because we’re back with the Razzball Commenter Leagues!  That’s right, after embarrassingly not coming close to the RCL title last year, I burned out my insides beating a hot wings challenge for reigning champion Akron Lebrons.  At least it was only a day of pain, not a month-long shaming of having High as Greg Kite shaved in my head.  Well, now that I’m married, that latter one is definitely out…

And now it’s your turn to beat the best fantasy basketball community around in the RCL leagues, and immortalize your 2015-16 season with a spot in the RCL Hall of Fame!  Not only does your banner fly forever, but 1st place will win a $50 Amazon gift card, along with the JB YouTube shaming video.  I think the eating challenge went really well last year – after, well – the head shaving wasn’t too legible…  So this time I’ll do a volume eating challenge of the winner’s choice somewhere in the NC area, but nothing disgusting!  I’m not chugging a jar of mayonnaise, aight!  I’m thinking 5-pound burrito, 72-oz steak, 30 happy meals… whatever you’d like!  2nd place gets a prize this year as well, with a $20 Amazon gift card.

We’re going right back to our standard head-to-head 9-cats this year (FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLK, TO), even though Yahoo currently has H2H Pts as the default.  Last year they changed this mid-preseason, so they may change it again; we’re gonna stick with 9-cat H2H.  We’ll have 12-team leagues (Yahoo default – the only Yahoo default change this year is Yahoo has defaulted to 2 “IL” spots for players with the “Injured” designation, which should make streaming even more interesting) and the same easy way to track the overall winner.  The top prize will go to the team that A) won their playoffs/league title and B) of the champions, had the best overall W-L-T regular season record.  So to topple the RCL field, you’ve got to weather the playoffs yet have a dominant record in the regular season.  This takes out any crazy logarithms, any of that technical wizardry Rudy does for baseball, and any of that math beyond 7th grade algebra that I can’t understand…  Why Slim handles the numbers!

We’ll all be chasing defending champion Akron Lebrons, so come one, come all, and start up an official RCL Hoops league today!

TO CREATE A LEAGUE

  • Create a league in Yahoo using this link.
  • Type in your league name.
  • Change League Type to “Head-to-Head” (changing it off from “Head-to-Head – Points”) from the drop down menu.
  • Set your Draft Date/Time (leave draft as “Live Standard Draft”).  (NOTE – you must keep your original draft time the same or have unanimous agreement to change the date once your league is set to ensure everyone that has signed up for your league can make the draft.)
  • Click Finish.
  • After completed, ***Make your league public*** (click “Commissioner” – Edit League Settings [3rd link down under “League Management”] – then scroll down to “Make League Publicly Viewable” – “Yes”)
  • Add the league info to the Spreadsheet (which you see below).  You can’t add into the spreadsheet directly in the post, you have to go through that Spreadsheet link.  To get your link to allow RCLers to join your league, click “Commissioner” – “Invites Settings” – (scroll to the bottom) – Invite URL.  Copy and Paste that link in Column G of the spreadsheet.
  • Update how many spots are filled as frequently as you can and enjoy your RCL League!

TO JOIN A LEAGUE

  • Click the Link of the league you’d like to join in the spreadsheet below and create your team.  That’s it!

I’ve already got my JB’s Random Commenter League ready to be joined, so good luck in RCL action this year and we’re looking forward to a big 2015-16!  If you have any questions/comments for setting up or joining, shoot your comments below.  Or if you have RCL questions for me via e-mail, hit me up at [email protected]  Thanks for playing in the 15-16 RCLs!

I’m in!

This’ll be my first kick at the RCL can and the 9-cat H2H format will be a bit different than what I typically play…so I’m looking forward to the challenge.

Can’t wait for the draft…should be good for a chuckle when JB burns a fourth rounder on a Pacers rookie!

@JB Gilpin: Thanks, man. I’d love to commish a league, but I’m about to start a new job just after Labor Day and my schedule will be a bit all over the place (and I get it week-by-week so it’s tough to forecast availability). I’d hate to commit to something and not be able to follow through on it. The 9:45pm (EST) draft time is about the earliest I could draft too since some of my shifts will end at 9:30pm, plus I’ll need to drive home and fire up the draft app. This way, at worst I’ll only have to rely on the pre-draft rankings list to take care of the first round or two and then I’ll be ready to rock & roll live with the rest of you degenerates!

@JB Gilpin:

Definitely agree on the position eligibility with ESPN, it gets frustrating at times.

That said I still play all my fantasy on ESPN, tried yahoo last year and I’m not sure if it’s just because I’m much more used to the platform on ESPN but I definitely prefer it.

Will probably pass on playing as I have other leagues to commish etc but will watch with interest!

Hey guys as an incentive for joining my league and keeping it competitive, I am personally offering a $50 prize for my league. $40 will go to the champion, and $10 will go to the winner of the loser bracket.

It’s still free to join and play, I am just offering this out of pocket so that we get a good group of committed managers. Also the small prize for the winner of the losers bracket will hopefully keep everyone playing till the end.

The only catch is that it’s $50 CAD, so that’s worth about $2 US these days haha

For the past 2 seasons our league (composed of buddies) drafted a week before the NBA season starts. But this year I’m planning to have the draft on the 1st week of October bcoz I want to take advantage of the stupid ESPN rankings (tho I don’t have an idea when they’re gonna start updating). LOL. But isn’t that too risky? I mean players could still suffer some injuries in the preseason.

(Can’t join any of the RCL Leagues, I can only dragt if it’s set at 10PM onwards damnit)

I’d prefer to email you guys privately instead of post on here but I couldn’t find a way to do that. Myself and the other managers were ready and expecting to draft in Daddybigs RCL league and the dude never showed up. His team name wasn’t even changed which makes me think he never even visited the site page. Pretty disappointed at the unprofessionalism of it all. Heck I’d commish the league if I were allowed to. Anyways, just letting y’all know about it, and hoping for a better experience with the other leagues that still have openings.

i’m of the opinion that if you commish a league,you should be checking the league page every so often for messages and definitely find a way to be there on draft night as you’re the one who chose that date and time for a draft. not a good look for daddybigs

Heyo JB,

I started up a RCL again 😀

Can I get some feedback on a team?

1. (7) Chris Paul (LAC – PG)
2. (18) Serge Ibaka (OKC – PF,C)
3. (31) Mike Conley (Mem – PG)
4. (42) Derrick Favors (Uta – PF,C)
5. (55) Monta Ellis (Ind – PG,SG)
6. (66) Ricky Rubio (Min – PG)
7. (79) Robert Covington (Phi – SG,SF)
8. (90) Gorgui Dieng (Min – PF,C)
9. (103) Robin Lopez (NY – C)
10. (114) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Det – SG)
11. (127) Jordan Clarkson (LAL – PG,SG)
12. (138) Alec Burks (Uta – PG,SG)
13. (151) Zaza Pachulia (Dal – C)

I lost Henson a couple picks before i had to take Pachulia and Drummond before I took Conley. I think it might be too slim in rebounding and maybe 3s/pts. I like my assists and steals (Mancrush rubio) I think the most dubious pick might have been Robert Covington or maybe favors.

Hey JB! I had a draft the other night, 10 team H2H 9 cat, 1 point for a win per week instead of counting cats.

James Hardin (2)
Damian Lillard (19)
Paul Millsap (22)
Pau Gasol (39)
Goran Dragic (42)
Terrance Jones (69)
Tobias Harris (72)
Kris Middleton (89)
Ricky Rubio (92)
Robert Covington (109)
Jordan Clarkson (112)
Darren Collison (129)
Myles Turner (132)

What to do you think? My blocks are nonexistent, but there was always a far superior guard than the big men available. Thinking of trading Middleton for a big man, enough to boost boards perhaps. I feel like blocks are a punt which I never do.

Hi JB,

Thoughts on my draft from last night? 16 man/11 cat. Tried my best to stick to your ranks and do feel I got good value in most spots:

1. (10) Damian Lillard
2. (23) Serge Ibaka
3. (42) Derrick Favors
4. (55) Goran Dragic
5. (74) Robert Covington
6. (87) Terrence Jones
7. (106) Darren Collison
8. (119) Myles Turner
9. (138) Mo Williams
10. (151) Kristaps Porzingis
11. (170) Lou Williams
12. (183) Kelly Olynyk

Capela has been VERY intriguing. Would you drop lou will or kellyO for him? I feel they fit my team a little better, but I also don’t want to miss out on a potential shot blocking dynamo.

Hey mate

Tried hitting you up on the emails but figure this is better for team reviews. In order, 9-team, 14 cat (reb 3cats, a/to, fgm, all %s):

LBJ
Lillard (passed on Jimmy NOOOOO!… Should I trade for him? Haha)
Gobert (wow)
Draymond
Gay
Dragic
KAT
Payton
T Harris
T Jones
M Turner
Covington
Stan the man Johnson

Thoughts? Guys of note on the wire: JR Smith, J Johnson, E Davis, Vonleh, plumlee (POR), Tucker, Burke, Henson, W Chandler, holiday, colli, Lin. If I drop for a FA, Johnson, turner or Cov?

Cheers bro!

@jb Gilpin: not at all man, appreciate the response! Wow you do? I swear you woulda told me to upgrade in some areas. I do really like what Tucker brings to the table, particularly since our L includes O brds, but if Covington can indeed bust loose this season, I’d rather him. Outside of gobert, I don’t have any dub digit boarders so I wasn’t sure if you’d tell me to trade for a big or pick one up. Payton, Turner and Jones being injured right now is getting me a tad anxious.. I just wanna see them play in preseason already

We visited this one once, and we were both going for Thomas, but now that he doesn’t seem to be starting, and that 538’s “Carmelo” projects Middleton to have double the value of Thomas (about 7WAR vs. 3.5WAR), I wanted to pose it again.

Who would you keep from the following? (I’ve put respective keeper costs next to their name) in a 10-team league? To give some background, we get to keep 3 players and I’m already keeping Durant (R1 – pick 9) and Gobert (R11 – pick 109).

I get *one more keeper*, to be chosen from the names below. I can keep Thomas or Middleton for two more years at a rising cost of 1 round higher per year. Marc Gasol will basically be unkeepable after this year.

1. Marc Gasol: keeper cost round 3 pick (#29)*
2. Isiaiah Thomas: keeper cost round 9 pick (#89)
3. Khris Middleton: keeper cost round 10 (#92)

I would like to create a RCL league, are we able to use the setting – daily roster moves (today), instead of daily moves (tomorrow)?

@Andrew: It’s all the default settings aside from switching it from H2H points, to standard H2H. All the instructions are right above the spreadsheet.

Thanks! We definitely need some more!
