2K8 WIN Top Plays of Week 2
Finally, Week 2 brought to you live and in color. You know with the economy and all, the record companies are gettin' tight with the copyrights. For those of y'all that missed the Choir Boy gettin' okey-doked... enjoy.
2K8 WIN Weekly Power Rankings (Wk 3)
Fury and Slayers look to be new contenders
League's undefeated continue to impress This Saturday, one of these teams, SLA or NYF, will still be undefeated and the other will get their first loss. Naturally, it's the Game of the Week. NYF's speed and opportunistic defense should be a good matchup for the considerable size of the SLA frontcourt. Should be a doozy. My prediction: SLA [-1] in OT. Peep the rankings! -- K.J. Li
FBNYC 2K8 WIN Power Rankings - Week 3 (11.22.08)
Fury keeps the blowouts coming and it starts with the D. Their perimeter defenders might be better even than the old ORC Champion INI teams.
Slayers finally put down a convincing win on an overmatched GOD squad. Though its been the role players that had been most impressive, captain (G) Kevin Park reminded GOD what kind of singular impact he can be.
Dogs barely slipped by a Joes team that didn't exactly play their best. Of the old "B" squads, TAJ is probably the best but RVD shouldn't be too proud of that win. Offensive cohesion is a little suspect.
Joes took the defending Champs down to the wire. And if (F) Dave Liu (prior to the game, the league's leading scorer) had shot better than 2-11 FGs, they might have won.
INI might take solace in that they probably can't shoot much worse than last week. As seen in 2K8 SUM with BTP, (F) Dave Kim is capable of turning around a season. The sooner he arrives in D-Town the better.
Team idle in Week 2
As if they weren't struggling enough already, 2K8 SUM MVP (G) Ren Hsieh is out with an MCL sprain for at least 4 weeks. At least they get (C) Alvin Wang back and an extra bye week to regroup.
Observations... if you didn't already get the memo... Joe Kim is AKA "Sonic" now... we were gonna call Dave Liu "the Finisher" but after last week... we'll come up with something else... Champions League Fantasy Week 3 Standings (Top 4 of 12): Go Get Your Refund (B. Sun) 36-16-3... Kazakhstani Killers (N. Scuola) 32-22-1... The Project (R. Hyun) 31-22-3... Duke's Revenge (D. Hogwild) 31-23-1
