“I’m Coming Home” And Other Free Agency Buffoonery

We all know the story.  Cleveland fans burn things, then stage apology videos.  Yeah, let's put the ashes from last night's barbecue and put it on top of my LeBron James Cavs jersey and pick it up.  Sooooooooooo symbolic.  Somebody is already halfway through the 30 for 30 special... But I got an advanced look at LeBron's first press event with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert...

Free Agency Update And NBA Players Inexplicably Playing Pickup At The Y

Free agency is here!  It has been a bit mum since the FA pool is awaiting that LeBron James cannonball, leaving us without a good snapshot of how the league will look in 2014-15.  But we've got Summer League getting into gear and a couple interesting FA moves. With the The Decision 2.0 on hold, even P.J. Hairston is antsy and trying to get some ball in.  According to reports...

Knicks/Mavericks Trade: Instant Karma For The Zen Master

Thursday night's Draft was as exciting as advertised.  Some of the top prospects we've seen come around in a while found homes amongst the NBA's 30 teams -- yet, there were very few surprises, outside of maybe Aaron Gordon getting picked No. 4 overall by the Orlando Magic. Those of us expecting some big trades to go down were also disappointed.  There was really only...

2014 NBA Draft Recap: The One You’ll Be Telling Your Grandkids About

What a night, what a night!  While we didn't see the fireworks of say, a QB drafted by San Diego saying he'd only play for the Giants, but we had some interesting reaches, some surprising fallers, and one very happy/newly re-acquainted Hornets fan! The crew and I had a blast tweeting through the draft, so I have a few other thoughts sprinkled in the first round recap below...

2013-14 RCL Champion Branded On Scalp

The debt has been paid!  I'm not a Lannister, but I did go out and get "High as Greg Kite", our RCL winner from the past season, shaved into my precious fair-skinned head.  I hope you enjoy the fun little video, and don't forget to listen to our premiere Razzball Basketball Podcast on Friday Morning!

Westbrook v Wall: And Why Godzilla Is A Mistake

In general I think it's a good idea to say, "Spoiler Alert: Plot Climax", but I don't need to do that when talking about the new Godzilla movie because I haven't seen it.  It's not the plot I take offense to anyway, I'm disappointed in the choice of lead monster.  With today's CGI the giant, furry, and oh so cute Mothra could still wreck havoc...

JB & Slim Mock The NBA Draft’s First Round

Razzball Nation!  You've seen a dime a dozen... And no I'm not talking about lady parts or buttcheeks on Game of Thrones.... But mock 2014 NBA Drafts!  And since Game of Thrones is the hottest thing on TV, Slim and I decided to join the fray.  Let's pretend he's built like Drogo, the facial hair is fa rizz folks,  and I back-and-forth with him like whatever the...

Way Too Early Rankings: Top 50 For 2014-15 Fantasy Basketball

Happy draft lottery, Cleveland-ites!  Is having another 1st overall pick enough to lure LeBron back?!  I think chances of that are as good as Anthony Bennett turning out to be a good player... And now to the fun stuff... Figuring out where to rank the volatile middle-tier guys.  As Paris Hilton once said, "Studs are studs!  Except for when they're busts!"  Wow...

DeRozan v Hayward: And How The New King Was Crowned

It doesn't bother me in the slightest that life is just one big competition.  Like when JB thought he would oppose me for class president back in our days at Fantasy U.  I took pride in wearing the crown for FU and it was well known that I would even acknowledge the little people whilst being carried on the backs of peasants towards my concubines.  But for our senior year...

Way Too Early Rankings: Top 20 For 2014-15 Fantasy Basketball

Razzball Hoops Nation!  Wow, typing 2014-15 already just feels weird...  I'm not ready to quit you 2013-14!  Although, the disappointing image of the face of the Luminescent Lithuanian makes it easy.  We're done, ya ho!  I'm just not that into you... As I do every season during the NBA Playoffs, I think it's a fun way to kick off the year with some way too...

Rankings Recap – 2013-14 Fantasy Basketball Top 100

...And we're here!  Finally wrapping up a recap of the top 100 and how much I hated Andre Drummond coming into the year.  It's not my fault!  He still can't hit free throws!  Aherm, cough, I think I'm going to miss today's class with the flu. So far, and I'm not just saying this for my ego, I think I did the Nation better than I expected.  Sure there...

Rankings Recap – 2013-14 Fantasy Basketball Top 75

So we're through my top-50 and now getting into the mid-rounds.  We're taking this through the whole top 100, but some of these are going to be gold and some fool's gold.  As in, Larry Sanders' gold.  If I got to the end of a rainbow and Larry Sanders was there, I'd ask for a refund... Through the Top 20 and Top 50, I think I've done the rankings pretty...

More rankings, more "hindsight is 20-20"-ing!  Damn man, seeing LaMarcus Aldridge carve up the Rockets after his huge season is bumming me out - even before I hop into reviewing 21-50!  Get the red marker ready Slim!  Get that F ready! Just like we reviewed in the Top 20, rankings are based on my final updated top 200, comparing them to the FantasyPros aggregate...

The Season Wraps Up Here Baby!

What a 2013-14 Fantasy Basketball Season its been!  There have been tears, there have been laughs, there have been [formerly] Luminescent Lithuanians... Hard to believe a mere six-and-a-half months ago, we were launching into the season.  Man, was I right to be scared of Tobias Harris' ankle!  It ended up being scarier than watching Alien as a 10-year-old!  Something was...

Tyreke Plundah’s Da Thundah

I don't know today's title has a Boston accent, just sorta happened!  Tyreke Evans absolutely tore up the Thunder last night, slashing-n-gashing his way to a 41/9/8/3/0 line with only one turnover.  I don't know what's crazier, that line or a Pelicans win!  That starting NO line-up other than Evans was scrub city.  If you followed the news leading up to this game...

Brewers Of The World Are On Fire!

Brewers baby!  Best record in baseball.  9 in a row.  Oh yea, this is basketball, but man!  My Brewers are unstoppable!  And it carried over to the hardwood, when Corey Brewer had maybe the most preposterous, out-of-nowhere game all year.  I actually did highlights for the Wolves Rockets game Friday night, and it was like watching a pickup game where one guy was just light...

The 2013-14 RCL season is in the books, and congratulations to High as Greg Kite!  Great, now I have to shave that into my head...
