On a peculiar February 1, Joel and Son look back at January’s risers and fallers across the fantasy basketball landscape. The pair discuss OG Anunoby’s opportunity in New York, Pascal Siakam’s ceiling in Indiana, and draw parallels between Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle. Should the Thunder trade Josh Giddey? Is LeBron finally old? Where did […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome back to the third post of this mini-series as we take a moving snapshot in time, even if that sounds like an oxymoron. But basically, we’re taking this point in the season to take a look at the NBA landscape through the meta-fantasy lens. Sounds like it’s from the future, with robot dragons wearing […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Three game slate last night… I watched the TNT game; Sixers vs. Nuggets, and was highly entertained. The Nuggets continue to have a very stable rotation and there’s not really any takeaways unless someone gets hurt. Nobody got hurt. Same with the Sixers. Just sit back and enjoy Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid go head-to-head, […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Back in my day [classic way to captivate an audience from the get-go], we just called it the night before Thanksgiving. But kids these days [mmk, Gramps] have to slang up everything [even my Zyn] to make ‘em feel special. So now they call it Blackout Wednesday, or Drinksgiving. Well those days are a bit […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
I started writing a movie plotline starring Damian Lillard in Canada as a male counterpoint to Stella in the Bahamas, but decided to spare you fine readers that pending trainwreck (and possible violation for racial insensitivity from the Razzball board of directors) and get right down to basketball. With Giannis taking the night off, Lillard […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The end of each year is now deemed “Silly Season,” when resting vets on contenders and breakout youngsters on tanking teams play havoc with lineup decisions. Three weeks into the season, I now declare this time of the year “Wacky Season,” with Wednesday night a perfect example. There are players who started injured coming back, […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last night had two unfortunate injuries. Wendell Carter Jr. broke a finger, and Devin Vassell broke his groin. My advice is to try to look beyond “player B will replace player A” because that isn’t always a swap. Like Mo Wagner will probably start in Orlando making Ma and Pa Wagner happy to see their […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The season is all but here and it is time to lay all the cards on the line. And what a great natural segue, as where do you find playing cards and basketball? That’s right folks, at the casino. And while we do things with the fantasy tilt here at Razz, unfortunately it’s nye impossible to talk anything sports nowadays without the almighty dollar attached to it. You know because I brought out the Olde Ye English. The technical term for serious talk between us and you shan’t forget it. Anyways, we’ll have the usual “potentially” entertaining analysis and content below plus the New World Order (aka the Vegas SPREAD) and my takes on the O/U. So let’s get to the Eastern Conference, a setting that generally feels a lot less competitive than its Western counterparts, but still offers an interesting blend of playoff juggernauts, underperforming teams, and everything in-between. There’s also the Hornets, but really, that should be a category in of all itself. Maybe the “hide your women when they come to town” type of category. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to the 2023-24 Fantasy Rankings! We’ll continue this wonderful (is it? Yes!) journey with other positions and formats, including all positional rankings for both Roto and Points leagues, and then of course wrapping it all up with our Dynasty Rankings. What will be released is just the pure rankings; analysis and other amazing draft preparational content (ooooh, sounds so official) will be released after our aforementioned rankings “journey”. Remember, it’s not about the destination, but the friends we made along the way! Especially if it ends in a Fantasy Championship, in which case, it is sorta-kinda about the destination, which is also fine. Because who cares about friends when you can hoist a trophy in their general direction? I mean, I’m talking both literally and figuratively here folks. Just as long as you hoist, it counts. As they say, it’s all about the hoisting… (I think.) 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?
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?
Wooooooooo, the NBA trade deadline is cookin’ now!
Wednesday night shook up the landscape of the league, as D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, Jarred Vanderbilt are now Lakers, Mike Conley is a Timberwolf, Josh Hart is a Knick and Russell Westbrook is playin’ the blues in Utah (for now). But more on that later. First, let’s get into our regularly scheduled programming: My Wednesday fantasy recap. Please, blog, may I have some more?
