Razzball Nation!  If you have made it this far, you are either in the championship of your league or semi-finals.  Or you play roto, which, let’s face it, almost everyone saves for baseball.  However, the end of the season is more like the end of fantasy football than baseball with teams benching their stars with the playoffs a mere few weeks out.  It’s the perils of owning great players on the elite teams.  Just ask my buddy who I knocked off in my fantasy football championship years ago when the Eagles benched McNabb and Westbrook on Monday Night Football.  Then the Eagles lost to my Panthers in the NFC Championship (I think it was that year, might be wrong – can I have another fact checker? I’m too lazy for Google).  But I digress. The Heat benched both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade with “injuries” on Sunday, and both are listed as questionable for tonight’s game against the Knicks.  What, are they the new Patriots?  Actually it’s a lot closer than you’d think.  You have Brady/Br

LeBron, Wade, Chalmers all out vs. Spurs

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Sit for Heat, Presenting David Stern With Dilemma of Own Making

Good luck digging yourself out of this one, David Stern. On the seventh day, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers rested. That was precisely what their absences on Sunday amounted to, and not the injury-related DNPs the Heat claimed they were. Nine games remain in the regular season, making this the time when teams in comfortable playoff position begin to rest their stars...

Worth betting on the Miami Heat to win it all?

Heading into the NBA playoffs, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh simply look unbeatable. They blowout teams, make monstrous second-half comebacks, and make the rest of the league resemble a JV squad.
