Image result for best of the best

It’s baaaaaaaaack. I know the wait was excrutiating. The eye fatigue from those countless hours staring into the digital dojo. The clicks. Oh, the millions of clicks on the mouse button that turned you into a one-armed Popeye. What was it all for?… <in a voice that echoes and decreases in volume each time the phrase is repeated> What was it all for?…What was it all for?….

The chance to be the best of the best of course!

I’ve been told that the RCLs are populated with some of the sharpest fantasy basketball minds in the land. Do you have what it takes?

For those of you new to the game, RCLs stand for Razzball Commenter Leagues. It’s not one…not two…not three….not four….but an infinite number of 12-team leagues all vying for one spot atop the RCL landscape. You can both join AND create a league. One may even have your favorite writer or commenter. Since you will be in multiple leagues, make sure to use the RAZZBALL TEAM NAME GENERATOR. It’s been proven to be a hit with the ladies. At the end of the season, the overall best team will win a Rotowear Razzball T-shirt, $50 Amazon gift card, and be immortalized in the RCL Hall of Fame. 2nd place will get a Rotowear Razzbal T-shirt and forever be the bitch.

The leagues with be on Fantrax (first year, moving over from Yahoo). H2H cats: FG%, FT%, 3PM, PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLK, TO. Rosters will be: 10 starters (1 PG, 1 SG, 1 G, 1 SF, 1 PF, 1 F, 2 C, 2 FLX), 3 bench, and 2 IL. The overall winner will be the team that:

  • Wins their playoff/league title then….
  • Out of all the champions, the team with the best overall ranking determined by a formula that Rudy is creating.

You ready?

    Hi SON,

    Back from Razzball 1 to join your first league again from Tokyo. I was so ready for the playoffs…

    Crossing fingers for this year!

      Let’s go!!!!!

        Hey someone left SON Razzball league drafting on 1 Dec.

        Can you update the link to let someone join the last spot which is vacated now?

          done. thx

          • Tokyofantasy says:
            (link)

            Thx boss! Hope someone joins b4 the draft.

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              Me too!

              • Tokyofantasy says:
                (link)

                I see that someone had joined indeed and draft room is now open! I’m picking #11 and you #5. Guess we are not taking KAT/AD/Beard, shrug emoji.

                I’ve noticed something else actually. Playoff schedule is now set as follows (by default?), but the regular season is scheduled to end on May 16th.

                Playoffs will begin in this Scoring Period: 21 (May 11/21 – May 17/21) and last for 3 periods (rounds).

                Perhaps Fantrax will address this default setting later, but it may be better for you to set it earlier proactively? Say week 18-20 or 19-21?

                Thx again for setting up this league, on top of your brilliant writings!

                • Son

                  Thanks!

                  I have too much AD as it is, so will be nice to go in another direction.

                  As for the playoff schedule, will change it later because the schedule isnt out yet

    So I just had both of my long term dynasty leagues cancelled because the commishes of each league think basketball was too political last year and they are now done with sports. Large rosters, huge benches, g league stash slots, decent prize pools…what a waste. Has anyone else heard or experienced this? At a loss now where to find similar dynasty leagues.

    • Son

      Son says:

      Wow. That is lame. Sorry to hear. I can put you on the waiting for the RDA, a 30 team dynasty league, if you want. Send me email addy to [email protected] if interested

    Thank you

      Sent. For everyone else, all the projections will be up soon

    May be a question already answered but when do you expect to start putting out rankings?

      Son says:

      I just finished my projections. They have been sent to Rudy. Once he’s done with his magic, I will be posting

    SONNN, what’s good my brother? I am eager to talk shop, and I’ve jumped in one of your leagues, “Killian Softly” is ready to dominate like The Fugees in their prime.

    Let’s kick off with some keeper prep questions! 12 teams, h2h cats – std 9 plus off reb and def reb, keep 5 by round (moves up a round each year kept)

    Harden (1st) & 3rd pick or Kawhi (4th) and 4th round pick?

    Thank ya, sir.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Sup, Jon!!!

      Such a good name. Well done, sir. Sir Jon it is.

      Man, that’s tremendous value on Kawhi, but I gotta go with Harden. Sure, there are concerns, but if the situation doesn’t change too dramatically, he’s the number one player.

      • Jon says:
        (link)

        I feel like I’ve been knighted – very cool! 😂

        I was leaning the same way as you on this one – so, tertiary question following that one…same league settings, Baynes in 15th, Miles B (12th), PJ Washington (12th) or Jaylen B in 9th?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Really depends on your vision. It’s between Jaylen and Baynes for me. I lean Baynes due to value and chance he gets close to 28 minutes for the Raptors

          • Jon says:
            (link)

            Man, I’m thinking the same thing!

            I was a little worried about age and Boucher, but it seems like he could eat in Tor sans Gasol and Ibaka.

            I’m glad you like that move too. I didn’t want to miss on JB if he becomes a star, but seems like Baynes is the right call.

            What are your expectations for Wiseman as a rook? And long term?

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              Does that mean I’m a knight too? Sir Son has a nice ring to it!

              I don’t think Wiseman does much this year. I think he has the chance to be good, but I need to see it. With that said, I had a good feeling that Bam would be something after I watched him play in Summer League. I need to see him play first

              • Jon says:
                (link)

                I am down with some knights play – Sir Son it is!

                That’s a good call. Which rook do you like the most long term? I think Wiseman could be a monster in the sense of boards, blocks, and fg% – I’m thinking a more athletic Gobert is possible, but summer league will tell us a lot on a rough draft class.

    • Boris Dvoskin says:

      Hey Son,

      I have been wanting to ask you why you are so high on luka even calling him potential first round pick when he has so many weaknesses such as fg and ft percentage at high volume and blocks/turnovers as well?

      • Son

        Son says:
        (link)

        Cuz he’s basically a trip-sub threat every night. I’ve seen some who are taking him #1. I can’t do it over KAT and AD due to the weaknesses that you highlighted

  6. Son

    Son says:
    (link)

    Probably Killian Hayes but I’m not a prospect guy

    • Jon says:
      (link)

      What’s your read on Ayton and Sabonis this year? For some reason, I feel like both those bigs fly under the radar more than others.

      • Son

        Son says:
        (link)

        like them both

  7. Maarten says:

    Perhaps a dumb question but how/when is the draft? I live in the Netherlands so I probably have to set my alarm 🙂

    • Son

      Son says:

      There are leagues at different times. Choose the one which fits you. Sign up links are in the google sheets doc

    SON, does your top 10 overall factor in turnovers?
    Just wondering because the 8 cat no turnovers spread sheet u sent me has identical top 10. Just wondering if it was a coincidence. Thank you

    • Son

      Son says:

      On your sheet, go to the OVR column. At the top, sort sheet z to a.

      • Slimbo says:

        Field Goal Percentage (FG%), Free Throw Percentage (FT%), 3-point Shots Made (3PTM), Points Scored (PTS), Total Rebounds (REB), Assists (AST), Steals (ST), Blocked Shots (BLK), Turnovers (TO)

    Hey Son!

    Hope you’ve found some joy during this difficult 2020. Super excited to to be back though. I’m in Son 1 and 3. See you in fantasy land! I have zero clues as to who I’m drafting tomorrow, so I’m just gonna wing the hell out of this. Haha!

    SON, in your 8 cat no turnover rankings u have Hollis-Jefferson ranked 24 th overall. Was that just an error or not?

    • Son

      Son says:

      You have to sort by OVR again. He was a late addition to the list
