On the last day of games before the All-Star break, Joel and Stan take a tour through the NBA’s basement to get a sense of the potential risers and fallers in the NBA’s upcoming silly season. Who stands to gain if (when) the Wizards shut down Kyle Kuzma? Please, blog, may I have some more?
On the heels of a thoroughly meh trade deadline, Joel and Son break down all the big moves, including Dejounte Murray, D’Angelo Russell, and Bruce Brown! [inter whispers in ear] Or not! Instead, the duo discuss Dallas’ new frontcourt of PJ Washington and Daniel Gafford, Buddy Hield’s fit in Philly, and consider the redemptive possibilities of Richaun Holmes in Washington. Please, blog, may I have some more?
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. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Taking a break from the January grind, Joel is joined by Ossie from Razzball to discuss differing strategies for managing inherited dynasty teams. Ossie walks us through how he approached his first offseason and rookie draft in the 30-team salary cap league and explains why he tends to be more aggressive when revamping a roster. Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re back from break and podding in the new year! After spending a week in a basketball deprivation tank, Joel and Son kick off 2024 by surveying their fantasy teams and discussing what’s gone right (Alperen Sengun for Son, Grayson Allen for Joel) and what’s gone wrong (Cade Cunningham and Devin Booker for both.) Please, blog, may I have some more?
After spending a few days in the woods, the Razzpod returns with Joel and Ossie breaking down the rest of their rosters for Racco’s Mid-Season draft. Together they tease out how to navigate a slow draft after previously healthy players go down while you’re still drafting (looking at you Evan Mobley and Darius Garland), how to target late assists and points after paying early-round prices for defense and big man stats, and figure out just how long you can wait to draft a big in a two-center format. Please, blog, may I have some more?
While Racco’s Mid-Season draft hums along in the background, Son and Joel pivot their attention to their 30-Team Dynasty squads. After claiming victories last year (Son snagged the roto title, Joel the H2H chip), they reflect on their build strategies and consider what they’d do differently if they were drafting all over again. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another draft? In this economy? Fiends that they are, Son and Joel find themselves in a draft room once again, this time for Racco’s Midseason Roto draft. The duo discuss how the fantasy landscape has shifted since opening night, consider what they’ve learned during the still-young season, and try to avoid making last year’s mistakes this time around. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Following night one of the Knockout Round of the In-Season Tournament, Son and Joel discuss the success of the IST and bat about other potential improvements to the NBA. Then, the pair redraft the 2021 NBA rookie class from a fantasy perspective. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Back from Turkey Day, Joel and Son wonder when it’s too early to start worrying about roto percentages and then take a deep dive into Boston’s starting five. Should managers feel burned about spending a first-round pick on Tatum? Will Porizingis’ efficiency gains hold? Please, blog, may I have some more?
Back from his bye week, Son returns and chats with Joel about approaching the Head-to-Head format. More of a strategy chat than a breakdown of this week’s action, questions like How many roster spots should be dedicated to streaming? With limited benches, how tightly do we hold onto upside? Please, blog, may I have some more?
With Son on a Bye, Joel flies solo and digs into some offensive numbers from the first fortnight of NBA basketball. After a league-wide overview, the sputtering Kings, the relentless Thunder, and the breakneck Pacers all go under the microscope. Plus, a verdict in the case for Aaron Nesmith and redemption for Jalen Smith? Please, blog, may I have some more?
Son hands over the podcasting reigns to Joel and together they discuss the fantasy fallout from another James Harden trade. From there, they discuss the point guard play in San Antonio, evaluate the strong starts from Cam Thomas and Jalen Johnson, and consider the future of Utah's guard rotation.
We are blessed to chat with Michael Kimball, who dominated and was crowned the 2022-23 RazzJam Champion. Kimball provides excellent insight into his process and how he plays...uh, sorry...dominates fantasy leagues.

Joel and I highlight some players who could benefit in the upcoming silly season. We also talk about some of his teams, including an epic sweat in our 30-team salary cap league. I also touch upon my Main Event team, which has a chance of doing some things.
Jay recaps the Monday games for hoops, but he is my Miyagi, the one who brought me onto Razzball way back in the day. We talk about the state of the NBA, being asian in this space, get nostalgic about 90s basketball and just rap about his background and history.
Joel and I are joined by Ehran, who writes the Thursday recap for Razzball hoops. We rap about in-game entertainment at arenas, ways to make the game better, most memorable games that we've attended, and a bunch of completely useless stuff about hoops. Enjoy!
Rory writes the Wednesday DFS article at Razzball. We get into his DFS process and talk about how the trade deadline and end-of-season funny business can affect teams like the Spurs, Hornets and Pistons.
Joel and I talk about a ton of random stuff like nature vs. nurture, what differentiates greatness from the rest, injuries, not needing to galaxy braining it for fantasy, making the NBA game better, and players such as Michael Porter Jr., Walker Kessler, and Victor Oladipo.
