March Madness Razzball Logo

The tournament is finally here!

It’s time to make our NCAA Tourney Bracket picks and join the 4th annual Razzball Basketball Bracket Pool, which through the power of hyperlinks, can be joined by clicking it right there!  Yours truly put together a 2nd out of 27 finish in last year’s Razzball Bracket, so take that everyone that probably follows college basketball more than me!  Hah, I keed, I’ve been pretty invested this season with Chapel Hill looking so good.  And look at my alma mater making it!  UNCW getting a ridiculous draw playing same-state opponent Duke in a 4 vs. 13 matchup…  Duke seems to choke when they’re not a #1 seed though, Gus Ayonin’!  Although I dunno, I went to a UNCW game this year and watched a handful of their other games… It’s gonna be near impossible for them to keep up unless Duke misses all their 3s, since that’s all Duke can ever do on a basketball court…

So come one, come all, and the winner of the pool will get a spot in the Commenters REL League plus lots of notoriety on the Pod.  Phrases like “___ is so much smarter than us!” and “____ will pick my lotto numbers next time!”  How is that not the coolest prize ever, Hurley?!

Join the pool and set up your bracket today!

    Battling for the ship this week, but always have the future in mind. Who are your 5 keepers on this squad? Pretty sure I have the first 3 down, but need another set of eyes, especially yours *wink wink*. CJ? Batum? Myles? Mudiay? My case for each is; CJ – elite scorer to offset not so elite scoring from Wall and Nerlens, Batum – He’s awesome, but I get it, sometimes old and injured, would hate to lose him, Myles – Upside is gorgeous and would absolutely set me up for blocks and could be #2 scorer kind of like CJ in that respect, Mudiay – LOVE the idea of having another Wall-esque player on the team and that Denver team is uggggggg, so he should be $. What do you think?

    C.J. McCollum, Por PG, SG
    Evan Fournier, Orl SG, SF
    Nicolas Batum, Cha SF, SG
    Myles Turner, Ind PF, C
    DeMarcus Cousins, Sac C, PF #1
    Trevor Ariza, Hou SF, SG, PF
    Nerlens Noel, Phi C, PF #3
    Emmanuel Mudiay, Den PG
    Alex Len, Pho C, PF
    Hollis Thompson, Phi SF
    John Wall, Wsh PG #2
    Gorgui Dieng, Min C, PF
    Tristan Thompson, Cle PF, C
    Mirza Teletovic, Pho PF, SF
    JaMychal Green, Mem PF

      @v00dr00: Hah glad to weigh in 🙂

      Yeah Cuz and Wall are the obvious pair. I may be a little slanted, but I think Turner with his youth and upside is right there with Noel. He might actually be my #3. Prob indeed Noel #4. My 5th is all over the place, prob between Batum/Dieng/Mudiay for me. Even in a 5 keeper, I bet you could redraft Mudiay without much issues with your 2nd or 3rd pick. Eesh I’m having trouble saying Batum over him though… 8 or 9 cat league? Either way TO is prob a punt with Wall/Cousins… Hell, let’s go Mudiay as your #5!

        @JB Gilpin: Worrrd. Also, I noticed CJ was absent from your analysis. No excitement there with him? Also wanted to make one more thing abundantly clear, these 5 keepers are also the first 5 picks in the draft and you absolutely have the option to not keep anybody, but I’m not doing that, obviously, with the wealth here. Does this change your original thoughts at all? Sorry for not being clear before.

          @v00dr00: Nah, not as a 5th keeper. 7-10 keepers? Sure. I think the Blazers add more pieces, so less shots and usage.

          Hmmm I honestly would consider throwing that 5th keeper back and securing a high draft spot. I think Mudiay or Batum might make it to your 2nd pick
