Congratulations again to the Akron Lebrons, our 2014-15 RCL Champion!  As part of the winning bounty, Akron enforced an eating challenge of spicy wings as my video punishment for being unable to topple the field…  I blame Kevin Durant!  Hey, I might have looked ridiculous in the 2013-14 RCL Champion video, but at least that one wasn’t painful!  I finally know what it’s like to be the pilot at the end of Airplane! and covered in sweat…  Winter didn’t come fast enough!  Here’s the eating challenge video in honor of the 14-15 RCL Champ, Akron Lebrons:

JB – We’re back with our second annual NBA Razzies, awarding the worst of the worst from the 2014-15 NBA Season!  Last year’s ceremony was a pop culture sensation, a slamming of the dysfunctional Bucks and the [former] Luminescent Lithuanian.  Speaking of luminescent, I’m here with Slim who looks radiant.  What is that, some Oil of Olay exfoliant you’ve been using lately?

Slim – Really…?  I mean, that’s my intro…?  Really…?

JB – Yes, “really” as in I’m “really” happy with the turnout at the polls, as many of you patriotic citizens of Razzball Nation made your voices be heard in our 8 categories to be awarded tonight.  And I have to say Slim, I got a sneak peek of the results, and I have to agree with most of our winners.  Razzball Nation is so wise!

JB begins stroking Slim’s beard

JB – How did YOU get to be so wise, Slim?

uncomfortable pause

Slim – I’ve got to sit here and put up with this AND do a Podcast with you in a few hours?!  I’m firing my agent…

JB – …Speaking of firing, Brian Shaw is here!  Donning a “please hire me, seriously ANYONE!” suit made by the fine tailors of Larry Drew.

Slim – Yes and Michael Carter-Williams is here, excited for tonight’s festivities as he’s up for multiple awards. I’m really having trouble figuring out what he’s showcasing on the red carpet…  Looks like he’s in 4 XL jacket, but his pants barely go past his knees…

JB – Yup, that MCW has never been good with his ratios, Slim!

Slim – Correct you are JB, and with that, it looks like we’re ready to hand out our first award, so let’s tune in to the stage and start awarding our second annual Razzies:

RCL LogoCongratulations to the juggernaut that was The Akron Lebrons!

For the second straight season, the best team in the regular season across all the RCL leagues also won their league title.  Dominance is dominance!  Is that on the 50 Shades of Grey movie poster?

As detailed when we opened the 14-15 RCLs, Akron will receive a champion jump suit and gets to choose an eating challenge for me to attempt (and hopefully conquer) in their honor.  Oh man, I didn’t even finish my Mexican food entree last night!  So hit me up in the comments Akron, or e-mail me jb at razzball.com (sometimes the links screw up those pesky e-mail clients!).

And an added bonus, you will forever be enshrined on our Hall of Fame page to show to your doubters in life.  “Why are you 15 minutes late to work?!”  “Why aren’t you good enough to be in the Hall of Fame, Mr. Boss!”

You can check out how your teams compared to the title-winners in the final 2014-15 RCL Master Standings table, with the league champions in bold and enlarged.  I’ve DEFINITELY seen that on the 50 Shades of Grey movie poster…  Here’s how the finals wrapped up across our 12 RCL Leagues:

We all tip our caps to the Barking BassetHounds!  Congratulations winning the 2014-15 Razzball Elite League, in one of the most nail-biting fantasy hoops championships I’ve ever seen.  The Hounds win the second year of our deep dynasty, with titles for them and Slim last year.  I feel so inadequate!  At least I got further than Slim this year!  Stupid Rubio…  I’ll let our title contenders recap the tight matchup, which looked to go to runner-up Breaking Batum until the final games last night.  Thanks again to everyone playing in the REL League, and we’re looking forward to another great season in 2015-16!

RAZZBALL ELITE LEAGUE

[Reposting to the top!  Remember, polls close on Saturday night, so be sure and get your votes in for the 14-15 Razzies!]

The Razzies are back!  You’d think we’d want to distinguish the best across the NBA with our annual awards show, but where is the fun in that?!  Especially after this past month of injuries, DNPs, and tanking buffoonery.  Buffoonery I say!  So the second annual 2014-2015 NBA Razzies are here, a year after our debut awards gala.  Who could forget all our Larry Drew bashing?!  Our decorated awards panel have painstakingly put together the candidates for the prestigious Razzies, and once again, the results are voted on by you Razzball Nation!  Polls will be closed at the end of this Saturday night on April 4th, and we’ll release the winners in our awards ceremony next Tuesday.  We have 8 awards to bestow in the wall of shame, so vote once, vote often, and let your voice be heard Razzball Nation!
