It’s March Madness time, and in honor of Duke and their successful season, the first without a certain GOAT coach who looks like a rat, I’m gonna focus on the Dukies in the NBA. No, not Doookies, don’t be haters. One of the best things about being a fan of them lately is the many fantasy contributors from the best college hoops program in the land. It’s not their fault that they are better than whatever lesser team you follow.Please, blog, may I have some more?

If you’re still reading these, and I’m glad you are, as it means one of three things.
You’re still in the playoff race
You love my writing, in which case you’re my mom or you need to read a lot more good articles.
You’re out of it and trying to get a leg up for next year.
As we know, this is the silly season for basketball. Resting, tanking, and weird rotations are the norm in March. It’s March Madness, baby. I’m going to try to focus on the weird rotations thing from each game to see if we can decipher any meaning from said weird rotations.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Congrats to all who are reading this, as this means you probably are in your fantasy playoffs and have had much success. May my nuggets of wisdom tide you over for a day as you work towards victory. And if they aren’t nuggets of wisdom, may your disagreement of said nuggets further assist you.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Regular season time has ended, children. Here’s how the Razzball season seeds have worked out:
PB and G, owned by Eric, is the first seed and has a bye.
JokerSmoker was two games back and also has a bye.
Some great matchups in the first round:
The Oracle vs. Kostas
PhilOssie vs. Beats by Dray.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Bulls lose and refuse to play Patrick Williams and Coby White in an effort to make the play in. Noble goal, but I was hoping to see more minutes go to these guys. Nikola Vucevic ruined a 4 three-pointer evening with 6 turnovers. Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan both disappointed with less than 20 points. The Bulls really aren’t interesting, but keep an eye on them if they tank and go to young guys at the end of the season. Keep in mind though that Williams and White aren’t actually very good.Please, blog, may I have some more?
You read that right. Valentine’s Day is an objectively stupid holiday, and after 18 years of marriage the wife and I were good with a nice cup of coffee and takeout for the day. Then I watched the Bucks vs. Celtics game on TNT, and took a huge gamble at that! It paid off though, but please honor my sacrifice for your benefit and click on this article multiple times. I took the huge risk for all of you.Please, blog, may I have some more?
JokerSmoker and PB and G have a 7 game lead over everyone else. They also at the top in number of transactions in the league. Not all work out, but these two have just done a great job all year. Well, of course, JokerSmoker took the big fat L last week to yours truly!Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ll start with the TNT game, which I almost didn’t watch because Devin Booker and Kevin Durant were out.
Wait, what was that? Is that………
Devin Booker’s music???????
Yes, Booker returned with 19 points and six assists and the Suns are whole again. Torrey Craig has lost what little value he had (3 points in 25 minutes). Chris Paul did have 12 assists with his 9 points, but the guy just looks slow to me. He’s thicker than he used to be and seems like he’s a step slower. Still good, but I’m wondering how long this will last before he craters. I’d get off him and trade him to someone who isn’t watching. And what happened to Deandre Ayton? 35 points and 15 boards, keep that going.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Five game slate on a rainy Tuesday evening. Well, might not have been raining in your neck of the woods. I hate ice storms more than I hate this year’s Bulls squad and watching LeBron James complain about every game mattering, the refs screwing us, and then resting the next game so he can break a scoring record later on TNT.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I watched the stupid Bulls lose to the stupid Pacers last night and am in a bad mood. So in honor of my bad mood and in an effort to put myself through self therapy, all of my takes in the recap are going to be people to move off of or avoid altogether. Seriously, blowing a 21 point lead to the Pacers without Tyrese Haliburton…Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m a big fan of sports of all kind, and spend most of my free time doing some sort of activity involving them. I’ve been accused of having “narrow interests” and “not being well rounded.” I resemble those remarks! If left to my own devices, I would not work, spend my time watching replays of the previous nights games, and using all sorts of different simulations. This recap pays tribute to my stupid one track mind.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Four game slate, let’s get to it! I’m paying homage to a favorite song, It Takes Two by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock. Just a great jam.Please, blog, may I have some more?
