Tomorrow night baby!  The 2015-16 season is upon us, and thanks to all the readers and commenters, we’ve grown the staff to bring our deepest content in Razzball Hoops history…

We’re making a few changes from last year, mainly our awesome team helping with the daily notes.  Unfortunately we’re staying with bi-weekly podcasts, but with a big change!  A week or two into the year, we’ll be recording in the wee hours of the morning to bring you Pods for your drive to work in the Americas.  They’ll be much earlier from the start of games if you’re listening elsewhere.  Shout out to our international readers!  When I win the lottery, I’m going to visit all of you on a worldwide Razzball tour and share a beer!  I’ll be rich, so drinks on me!  And shout out to Slim, working around my crazy schedule as I get healed from being a vampire, and turned into a mere mortal.

With our growing team, “first, we would just like to get to know you!”  So meet our team below, and preview our weekly publishing schedule.  It’ll go into effect next Monday, and I’ll be carrying the torch with all the Daily Notes this opening week to kick off the season.

And no introduction to the season could be complete without 15-16 picks!  The writers stake their claims on their big calls for the season, with a few additional notes on their rationales.

Welcome to 15-16, a big welcome to our new writers, and let’s have an epic season!

[We’ve also got two RCL Leagues with spots still open drafting tonight; if you’d like one more team before the start of the season, join today!]

Slim

Podcast – Slim: It comes with a heavy heart and a tear in my eye that I do hereby announce my Razzball retirement. There was once a time I thought I would be here forever, whether that time was going back and forth with Kai about Nerlens Noel or discussing the finer points of punting FT% with Mac, it is now over. The plan now is to sell out as hard as I possibly can. My fantasy life will no longer be waylaid by knowledgable fans or reasonable questions. Instead I’ll follow in the footsteps of the great Yahoo and Rotoworld writers and focus all my attention on snarky anonymous questioneers. No longer will I discuss why Andrew Wiggins is so good and only focus on why his rookie numbers represent a harbinger of the second coming of DeMarre DeRozan. *wink wink* If I’m truly lucky then all my time will be focused on what the internet was designed for – Trolls – henceforth to be referred to as ‘Scott the Rattler’. Here at Razzball there just aren’t enough Scott the Rattlers for me to be able to curl up into my fetal position of despair and question whether my life has any meaning at all. I guess what I’m trying to say is that you, the one who is reading this, is the reason I do what I do. I don’t do this simply because of my ego driven desire to hear myself speak and have others confirm… Oops, I didn’t mean to say that outloud. I meant to say that I do this because of all the entertaining conversations I’ve had with each and every one of you. Yes even you, you cute little rattler. On second thought, check that, I’m not going anywhere.

422Dan A

Buy/Sell – What’s good Razzball faithful? Dan A. is back for year three doing the Buy/Sell article on Tuesdays. In Basketball terms, this is the year it all has to come together for me, or my option won’t be picked up. Editor JB has grumbled that I’m a ‘permanent potential’ sort, and he needs to see me justify my high draft position, and drive the lane, stop taking mid-range flyers. In real life, I set a hell of a pick, and have a fondness for longballs. In Razzball, I bring you rising/falling stock, break down trade scenarios, tell you which guys I think are undervalued, and crack wise. Oh, and I’m an unapologetic Raptors fan, but an apologetic Canadian.

429Pete Nice

Boards-N-Blocks – After a lengthy PED suspension (damn that herbal chai!), Pete Nice is back in the saddle again for another season of Boards-N-Blocks action. As the name implies, I’ll be looking at dudes who give you the best combination of both categories – think Anthony Davis, DeAndre Jordan, Rudy Gobert, Mark Eaton, Ewe Blab, you get the picture. I’ll also throw a few little guys like John Wall who can get you a block from time to time. And for all you D-League junkies out there: If you ever need some inside dirt, I live within three miles of the home court for the Delaware 87ers. You want to know what the center for the Reno Bighorns ate at Red Robin last night? I got you. You want to know if the Rio Grande Valley Vipers hit the local massage parlor last night? Razzball will cover my investigative piece into the matter. Right JB?

Daily Notes – What’s up, Razzball Nation? Matty here, coming to you from the Great White North. As a long-time fan and player of the game of basketball, I’m proud to be part of the outstanding stable of writers at Razzball for the 2015/2016 NBA season. I’ve learned a great deal by reading the articles and comments sections on this site and it has been a huge part of my fantasy basketball success to date. This year I have the opportunity to share my experience and opinions in what I hope will be a unique way that resonates with the community. Throughout the year you can look for my takes in the Wednesday morning daily notes along with some feature pieces that are inspired by events of the season. Hit me up on Twitter anytime @moneyballmatty or drop me a line in the comments section – always happy to chat roundball! Cheers.

THURSDAY

Daily Notes – Glad to be back for a second year. This year, I’ll be writing Daily Notes and occasional injury updates. As a DC sports fan, I’ll be rooting for John Wall and Bradley Beal to carry the Wizards far into the playoffs. Hopefully we can make a deep run to entice Kevin Durant to come back home. One can dream, right?

492Adam

Waiver Wire – Hey Razzball Nation!  Adam here!  I’m currently a Junior at USF getting a degree in IT, to work towards a career in sports analytics.  Basketball and stats in general have always been a love of mine, so this career seemed like a perfect marriage of the two.  It’s been awesome connecting with everyone during the off-season, and I’m sure we’re going to have a lot of fun this year!  I’ll be writing the Waiver Wire column. (Name tbd, but thanks everybody for the input so far!)  I’ll probably end up helping with some of the other content between semesters, but we’ll see.  Best of luck on the season, may your players stay injury free, and may your waiver pick-ups prosper!

 

FRIDAY

Daily Notes – Ending the week strong!  Should be getting a lot of premiere Thursday Night matchups, so expect a lot of LeBron fart jokes and Russell Westbrook fashion slams.  It’s going to be high-brow humor!

507Drew

Whose Line Is It Anyway? – Drew came up out of the swamps surrounding Washington, D.C., and is an NBA junkie with a deep and conflicted love for the Washington Wizards– deep because they’re great, and conflicted because they’re terrible. Drew is a total stat-head and line junkie (not those kind of lines) and will be doing a weekly article on Fridays called “Whose Line is it Anyway?” that will highlight the craziest stat lines of the week, providing some thoughtful insight and irreverent analysis on the week’s nuttiest numbers.

502Stro

8-Cat (every other week) – I’m Dan, I go by the alias stro as that is my team name in the league I play in. I’ll be providing articles and insight into 8-cat rankings for Roto leagues. I reside in Melbourne, Australia and I’m happy to answer any questions you guys needs help with. Follow me on Twitter @stroswift.

danb C.J. McCollum Ty Lawson Greg Monroe Anthony Davis Cleveland Cavaliers San Antonio Spurs San Antonio Spurs Anthony Davis

A few notes on the picks from the brass:

JB – Of course I’m the only one who has seen all the picks put together before this went live, but interesting to see 4 writers (including me) going with Cavs v Spurs with the Spurs winning it.  Slim and I obviously love our Wiggins, with charlie on the complete other side.

Slim – Obviously Wiggins is the sleeper since everyone else seems to think he’s DeRozan.  Bust = Bennett, looked that one up in a thesaurus.  By Y! predraft ranks it’s gonna be hard to top Capela. Closest thing to real answers I’ve got.

charlie – IT2 had 19.0 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.1 rebounds in 21 regular-season games with the Celtics last year, and I think another year of development in Brad Stevens’ offense will help his efficiency stats as well. Thomas should get all-star consideration as the best player on a playoff-bound Boston team. I think he’s going to fill up the stat sheet as the most exciting sixth man in the league this year.  Love the talent of Andrew Wiggins. Love his potential. But I don’t see him making “the leap” in his second year on a rebuilding Minnesota team. Wiggins will score around 18 PPG again, but this preseason has shown he needs to increase his assists, rebounds, steals, and blocks to be a true fantasy force.  Hard to see anyone stopping LeBron, Love, and Kyrie right now. When they were healthy last season, this team looked destined for greatness, and I think they are only scratching the surface of what they can do offensively. Even with LeBron coasting through the regular season, there is more than enough firepower to win the East. Atlanta, Washington, and Chicago are all the biggest challengers in my opinion (also in no particular order) but it won’t be enough to stop LeBron from reaching his fifth consecutive finals appearance.  LeBron almost singlehandedly won the Finals last season with, arguably, Matthew Dellavedova as his sidekick.  Substitute Delly, JR Smith’s awful performance, and horrible injury luck for a motivated Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving and I don’t see another team matching the Cavs in a seven game series.

Dan A – I know everyone’s down on Valanciuans, but GM Ugiri re-signed him to a big deal, and stated in his exit interview that he’s our guy, and that coach needs to go to him more. Given his ADP, of 8th round or so, he will be a steal.  Like much of my writing at Razzball, I’m going with my gut on this next one, like Dubbya did. But with a mess of a team, post surgery, and the triangle offense for a post up guy, I say you could do much better than Carmelo Anthony’s ADP of around 20.  FT are a concern for Elfrid Payton, but he was on fire the last quarter of the season, and I love his upside. JB has him ranked at 42, and I’d love to get him there with my 4th pick.  And I think Kevin Durant will be a monster this year.

danb – McCollum can score and Portland will realize he’s better then the often injured Gerald Henderson  Bust – Ty Lawson: off-court issues and Harden wants the ball in his hands as much as he can get.  Greg Monroe will have his best season to date.

 

We’re looking forward to an awesome 2015-16 season, and thanks for being part of the Razzball Nation this year!

    FYI – I was kidding about the Raptors winning the East. Another year, another 48 win regular season and first-round playoff exit. We are the NBA poster children for mediocrity. But hey – we get the All-Star game this year! That’s not nothin’.

    It’s obviously going to be the Cavs coming out of the conference…unless my LeBron James voodoo doll starts working a bit better.

    I started reading the daily notes at the very end of last season. Led me to win 1 of the two leagues I was in.

    I did categories for the first time this year so if I can get any opinions on my draft. It’s H2H, 9cat, 10 teams.

    8. Chris Paul
    13. Rudy Gobert
    28. Andre Drummond
    33. Rudy Gay
    48. Derrick Favors
    53. Kemba Walker
    68. Elfrid Payton
    73. Ricky Rubio
    88. Jordan Clarkson
    93. Deron Williams
    108. Robert Covington
    113. Alec Burks
    128. P.J. Tucker
    133. Stanley Johnson
    148. Aaron Gordon
    153. Marcus Morris (streamer)

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Thanks man, glad we helped out! Cool, well damn you’re loaded at PG! Nice position to be in, but watch the TO as the week moves on. I think after a week or two I would look to deal either Elfrid or Rubio. BLK is nice, FT% is a little low though, all the more reason to maybe deal Elfrid. Lovvvvve Gordon that late. Like this team a lot!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Connor: I’ll just add that I’d move either D-Will or Rubio. Between those two and CP3, there’s a lot of injury risk, so anything you can do to take some of that uncertainty away, is helpful. Great values through the whole draft though!

  4. Blint says:
    (link)

    Yo JB just got done with the draft. Dont think I did too well. Its a keeper league I can keep as many players as I want next year . 12 team and we have 18 roster spots. so deep league

    PG- Elfrid, Rubio, Avery Bradley,Brandon Jennings, Zach Lavine, Mo Williams

    SG/SF- Hayward, Giannis, Gallinari,Harden, Draymond Green,John Jenkins

    PF/C- Faried,Nurkic,Myles Turner,Kanter,Capela, Gobert

    Right now I can put Jennings and Nurkic in the IR spot. Picking up your man Nate Robinson in one spot 😀 what do I do with the other should I pick up Neto too?

    From the transaction trends on yahoo the people I can pick up are
    Bazemore, Snell,Humphries, Pachulia,Aaron brooks,Varejao, Steven Adams, Biyombo, McDermott,Brewer

    What say you ? Also the last podcast the joke about the crickets was hilarious!!

    Thanks!

    • Ryan says:
      (link)

      @Blint: Really dude? I think you f’ing killed it. You somehow managed to get Harden, Gobert, and Dray? Did you start the keeper league last year, or did one of those three somehow slip out of the second round in this year’s draft? Getting high upside guys like Giannis, Turner, and Lavine is a huge plus as well.

      FG% and maybe TO looks a bit weak, but other than that you seem solid everywhere else. I have a feeling some might say that you didn’t you didn’t get one of the “elite” PGs, but IMO Elfrid+Rubio & Harden+Hayward should be enough to do well in the guard stats.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Blint: @Ryan: Yeah I like this team too! I was about to say light on bigs, then you sneak Gobert in there!

        Yup Robinson is def an add. If it’s not too late I’d get Bazemore for game 1, if you can’t make a move for today’s games, I’d get Adams for the other open spot.

        Agree FG% and TO are the issues, I’m good losing TO most of the time and Adams will help FG%.

        And thanks for listening man! That cricket was crazy!

        • Blint says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin:

          Yeah yahoo league I can add a player right now for Tuesdays game. Is bazemore only a streaming option for this week? or I cut him and add adams later!

      • Blint says:
        (link)

        @Ryan: It was a keeper league . 🙂 Kept those 3 from last years team. Going forward we can keep how many ever we want .

        I actually wasnt happy getting Lavine. But I was so thin at PG had to take him. Kinda feeling better now that you consider him a good pick! Thanks!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Blint: Def just a streamer, I’d get Adams afterwards. Yup I like the LaVine pick too, another tough season and the Wolves seem like they want to be done of Rubio, could be a starter sooner than later

    Hi JB & Slim:

    Had a pretty horrible draft despite having the 2nd pick. while i may have gotten value at where I got these guys, i still feel its not cohesive. I know drummond and wade are huge mistakes, so i’ve been shopping them (ibaka, m gasol – rejected). only thing on the table is drum for pau, but i feel drum is better overall. i offered drum/wade for pgeorge/noel, but that probably gets rejected too.

    Please help!

    1. (2) Stephen Curry
    2. (27) Andre Drummond (last elite center)
    3. (30) Jeff Teague
    4. (55) Karl-Anthony Towns
    5. (58) Kemba Walker
    6. (83) Gorgui Dieng
    7. (86) Dwyane Wade (value?)

      JB Gilpin says:

      @hamtime: I don’t think you did that bad! FT% looks protected, nice low TO most of the way through, Wade yeah wasn’t the best fit, but at 86 I agree it was a value. He might be better to trade after a hot week or two. BLK looks good, I think you did awesome!

      @DK: Thanks man! Yeah we’ve doubled our writers this year, for more diverse voices and opinions and more content! Very excited to read these guys.

      Wow, Jokic at $9 compared to your values late is crazy! Lovvvvvve Oubre at $3. I had to spend friggin $15, but values by year 3 are different in that Gobert/Drayomd/Whiteside are all $1, so there’s more value on the table as each draft goes on. You definitely have depth which is nice, if Jrue can be healthy you have nice dimes. $15 is a hell of a value. BLK and REB look kinda low to me, even for this being a deeper. You’ll be surprised at how wel your nice depth will help, I think you did pretty well!

      • CTMN says:

        @JB Gilpin: All the values got messsed up at the end because of 3 autopickers. DK smartly saved his money and got all the young guys cheap! By the way DK, I’m playing you week one!

      @Jerry: Hey man, appreciate it, can’t wait! Just 18 hours away now!

      I gotta go Joe Johnson, but both should be owned even in 10ers. JJ should get nice out-of-position dimes and some 3s, I am kinda a fan this year, for the first time in a long long while. Any time!

    It’s so nice to see(i.e. write) you guys again.
    Let’s have a great year of fantasy basketball!!

    Could you look at my draft team? I put them in the order I picked them. It’s a 14-team h2h each cat. League.

    John wall
    Draymin green
    Pau gasol
    Hassan whiteside
    Trevor Ariza
    Ricky Rubio
    Tyson Chandler
    Jordan clarkson
    Joe Johnson
    Marcus Morris
    Joakim Noah
    Tony Parker
    Isiah canaan

    I seem to be really low on trey, %, and points.
    Any feedback appreciated.
    Should i pick up capela instead of anyone on this team?

    Thanks

      @Bulldogs: Haha, great to see/write you too! Yup 3s/Pts look like the big ones to me too. I think FG% is pretty solid, FT% is the tough one with Whiteside and Noah hurting you without huge helps. I’d probably hold off on Capela, I think your REB/BLK are solid. I’d be sure to stream some 3s early. ANy time!

      @Bryan: Thanks so much for reading man! Pumped as well!

      Yeah bigs look light, I’m fine losing REB and still trying for blk, and you have a few guys that help a little there. I might look for one more blocker who is also a shooter/low FG% to fit the build. Also looks like TO will be high. Nerlens Noel would fit perfect, btu I’m not sure the best deal for him. That would be the kinda player I’d look for off the wire early. Looks good otherwise, any time man!

        @JB Gilpin:

        Thanks for the feedback. I will see if I can work my magic and trade for another big. Myles Turner is also on the waiver. So might pick him up instead

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Bryan: Ah yeah Turner helps a ton, I’d nab him for KCP after tonight

    Thoughts on my team? 10 team H2H 9 cat

    Lillard
    Jack
    D Green
    Ibaka
    Horford
    Rubio
    Faried
    Monroe
    Gallinari
    KCP
    Myles Turner
    Gerald Green
    Burke

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @JJ: Great %s, Rubio really helps the dimes, Monroe and Faried help FG%, TO very manageable, it looks really solid. Only hole I see is a Lillard slow week and scoring might be a tad low, and I think you might need to stream for 3s, but those are easy cats to stream!

    Thanks, JB! I’ll try and pickup Joe Johnson. Should I drop Josh Smith or Harrison Barnes for him?

      @Jerry: Any time! I’d lose Smith
