Just a day into Summer League and my Twitter has been blowning up with over-reactions. Trae Young chucked bricks, Jaren Jackson Jr scored quick, and Marvin Bagley III looked slick. But you’re not here for the rhymes, so let’s take a closer look at the action that went down in Utah and Sacramento last night.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So here we are. Time for those Dynasty Deep Dive rookie rankings that you have been clamoring for. The draft has come and gone and we now know the landing spots for those who had their names called out on draft night. In addition, many of the undrafted rookies were fortunate enough to find themselves a home as well.
Remember that these rankings are for the entirety of a player’s career arc, not for 2018/19 redraft leagues. They are also representative of my own thoughts and not of anyone else at Razzball. We all have our personal biases and preferences in how we evaluate the long term future of NBA players. As always, I am happy to answer questions.

We are on the eve of the 2018 NBA draft and what better way to celebrate than to bring you a Razzball mock draft special. Joining me in exploring where we believe teams will go with the first 20 picks in this draft are Razzball’s very own Brent ‘The Fantasy Dick’ Carlson and one of the Dynasty deep Dive research team members Brett Nelson.
We start off talking about the minefield of potential trades that might affect the draft and then delve into who we think each team will take from picks 1-20, finally finishing off with 6 guys who we feel might well be a fantasy steal in the long term.
Sit back, enjoy, and let us know where you see picks going in the draft and who you want your team to draft. Don’t forget to join us next week for a post-draft reaction and whose stock rose and fell with their landing spots.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s that time of year again Razzball Nation! The pre-draft edition of the Dynasty Deep Dive rookie rankings, and what a treat I have for you, as I am not only sharing with you my rankings, but the rankings of two of the great minds that do a lot of research and discussion behind the scenes that inspire the Dynasty Deep Dive articles. I can’t stress enough how influential these brothers from different mothers have been, as they scout games, debate, and open my eyes to different paths of thinking. Not only that, but our leader here at Razzball basketball has dropped in to give a few of his thoughts and top 15.
For those of you that are new to Dynasty Deep Dive, these rankings are for the entirety of a career. Therefore, should not be used for redraft leagues. It’s also important to consider that these are pre-draft, so landing spots will shake things up. I will make the necessary adjustments for my post-draft rankings, so keep an eye out for those.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After a long hiatus, the Razzball Basketball Podcast returns! Brent and Craig give their predictions for each series in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

Yes Razzball nation, Dynasty Deep Dive is back. I was nearly out for the season, Greg Odon-style, but the current recovery from back surgery has allowed for a swift return back to prospecting and podcasting for your basketball needs on my 2 year anniversary of serving up delicious offerings for those dynasty teams of yours.
The season might be over for fantasy basketball, but now should be the time that your research and scouting clicks into overdrive.
Now for some time of a little self indulgent reflection. For those of you that are new to Dynasty Deep Dive, this was the article in the pre-season that recommended you draft Donovan Mitchell, Jayson Tatum, Lauri Markennan, John Collins and Malik Monk. Ok, it might have took Monk three quarters of a season to get going, but there are many a championship team out there that owe thanks to his late season production. Don’t believe me?

This week I will be focusing purely on where I see potential fits for guys in the upcoming draft class and ease my way back onto the court with a minutes restriction. But it is good to be back and make sure to tune in throughout the off season for your prospect draft breakdown.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Whatup Razzball Nation!!
All good things come to those who wait. In what has been a challenging few months with my own health and the passing of a family member, I am back with another portion of Dynasty Deep Dive, as those of you who have been keeping up to date with the Razzball Basketball podcast would know.
So where are we at? What has happened in my absence?……………
Only the development of yet another superb freshman class, in what has been a topsy-turvy, can’t miss season in college basketball. The action hasn’t stopped there, though, as we have witnessed what no other 18 year old has done before and that is dominate the Euroleague (Europe’s highest level of basketball) with a mixture of wizardry and masterful shooting from one of the best European basketball prospects to have stepped foot on the court (and I believe that to be no exaggeration).
So who are these pretenders? What makes them so special? Well, keep reading and let me take you on a little journey of why I’m drooling over the 2018 NBA draft class.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The season has come. I started by feeling excited and anxious during the day on Tuesday, knowing that my favorite past time was about to start. The clock struck midnight (living in the UK I am five hours ahead of EST), my Astros were leading 4-0 in game 3 of the ALCS, life felt good, great in fact and then……………………………. BOOM!!
Quicker than you could say Georgios Papagiannis my whole world came crumbling down. Not only did I see my Astros blow a four-run lead, but simultaneously witnessed the potential career-ending injury of Gordon Hayward (of which I can gladly say, he is expected to make a full recovery).
Sport has it’s funny ways, and Tuesday provided one hell of an emotional roller-coaster. Wednesday was no different. Armed with some expensive gourmet shit (as Samuel L Jackson would say) and NBA.TV I felt like a kid on Christmas, not knowing which game to watch at any given time, attempting to watch four at once. Not well I might add.
So, to reestablish order, let’s take a few deep breaths and go back to my bread and butter, Dynasty Deep Dive style and take a look at next years top-heavy draft class.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tehol is back with me to update everyone on the newest developments around the NBA! We start off focusing on Summer League in a number of facets. Surprise players, how each of the top picks looked, who disappointed, fantasy values for the rookie class, we got it covered! I gush over Dennis Smith Jr. some more after I declared future greatness on the previous podcast while Tehol loves him some Lonzo Ball. Afterwards, I get Tehol’s opinion on some of the big summer moves that Son and I discussed on the last podcast and also hit on the Avery Bradley trade plus Kentavious Caldwell-Pope signing. From there, we hit on the rumored Melo to Rockets rumors and our thoughts on its potential impact. All of that and more on the latest edition of the Razzball Basketball Podcast!
Note: We recorded this right before it was reported Kyrie Irving wants a trade. A new podcast will drop if Kyrie or Melo are officially moved.Please, blog, may I have some more?
