2K9 SPR Players of the Week (Wk 3)FBNYC, 4.1.09
N. Echevestre (KBG)
F | 6-4 | 200 lbs
Week 3 Stats
PPG: 25.0
RPG: 6.0
BPG: 4.0

Well, it was just a matter of time before Echevestre made PoW. The Bangers just had to win one. That rare combination of height, athleticism and skill, he just makes it look so easy.

RU: H. Chung (SLA) 23 pts, 5 3FG
Rob Chanth. (GOD)
F | 5-11 | 175 lbs
Week 3 Stats
PPG: 25.0
RPG: 8.0
APG: 3.0

Truth is, "Black Rob" could've won it any of the last 3 weeks so we'll give it to him now. He's the the league's leading scorer at 24.0 ppg and shooting a red-hot 65% from the field.

RU: J. Kim 26 pts, 8 rebs, 1 blk
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers

Jeremy Ueno (KBG) 22 pts, 7 rebs

Ueno was an unstoppable force with the diminutive Quicks yapping at his feet. His elbows repel humans on the way to layups and FTs.


Runner-Up: S. Young (QIK) 9 rebs, 4 stls
Defensive Player of the Week

Jeff Moy (GOD) 7 rebs, 3 stls, 4 blks

Moy returns to the league like he left it, flying up and down the court and making plays on defense against much bigger opponents.

RU: Nic Echevestre (KBG) 6 rebs, 2 stls, 4 blks
Fantasy Line of the Week

N. Eche. (KBG) 25 pts, 6 reb, 3 ast, 2 stl, 4 blk

RU: J. Moy (GOD) 14 pts, 4 3FG, 7 reb, 3 stl, 4 blk

Discorama Rookie of the Week

Nic Echevestre (KBG) 25 pts, 6 rebs, 4 blks

RU: Jeremy Ueno (KBG) 22 pts, 8-10 FGs, 7 rebs
The "John Starks" Award

Shaun Young (QIK) | 1-11 FG (.091)

He's undersized and the only big QIK has on the roster. Even working his ass off in the paint, the rookie's gonna see some days like this.

Runner-up: Kwan Lim (NGC) | 1-8 FGs (.125)

The "Chris Dudley" Award

Rob Chanth. (GOD) | 5-9 FTs (.556)

You win some and dim sum you lose. Justice actually made 3-4 from the charity stripe which leaves Rob the default Dudley.

Runner-up: None worth mentioning.

FBNYC Game of the Week


NYF (C) Rich Chang wins the tip over SLA (F) Harris Chung, a sign of things to come.
MLK HS, NYC -- Saturday's much-anticipated rematch of last season's finalists started with the kind of searing intensity it finished with in the 2K8 WIN Chip. Only this time it was the offense of both teams on showcase, which seemed to give the Fury the advantage.

But, the Slayers with (F) Harris Chung taking over as the featured scorer, have found a shooting touch they lacked last season. Even as Chung has struggled percentage-wise from deep, his ability to draw double-teams and use his height as an advantage to find open teammates over the top, has given SLA better looks than they saw last season.

2K9 SPR Week 2 Power RankingsFBNYC, 3.26.09
Parity or disparity for new teams on the block

Overall talent level has increased but has the number of competitive teams?

Three new teams in the "B" and one's 2-0, one's 1-1 and the last is 0-2 but its that last team that's turning heads. (G) Young Yu's KBG squad has played only contenders so far this season and they have competed. But they didn't win. The only team that can say they beat SLA in their franchise history is the NYC Gritty Committee. There's some teams to be reckoned with this seaon. And some teams that might not. Ever heard of cubic zirconia? That's what that is. Peep the rankings! -- C. B. Lee

Diff. Rank Team Record Comments
N/A


1.


NYF


(2-0)


Fury look good. 'Cause (F) Joe Kim is finally playing like he oughta. He ain't ust gettin' cake, he's takin' his cake. And eatin' it all in your face. As long as (G) James Choi keeps hittin' that jumper, NYF is the frontrunner.
N/A



2.



NGC



(2-0)



Gotta give it up, two games, two solid wins. They have a go-to man in (G) Kenneth Van who hits big shots and they got a frontcourt big enough to compete with any team in the OCC. For the sake of the highlights, (G) Jason Chin, take care of that back and get well soon.
N/A


3.


SLA


(1-1)


They didn't look good in their season-opening loss and they had to shoot .500 to beat KBG. Not really a good sign but (G) James Choi will help. He's got enough firepower to take some heat off (F) Harris Chung.
N/A



4.



GOD



(1-1)



I still don't even know if these guys can play D. But they can sure has heck score. Now (F) Jeff Moy joins the team just as (G) Ren Hsieh sits out with knee surgery. Hope (G) Ryan Aguila is up to running the team. They need a true point to keep the engine running.
N/A


5.


KBG


(0-2)


If it wasn't for 0-2, they'd be higher. Don't make sense to put a winless team in the top half of the board. (G) Young Yu and (F) Nic Echevestre is helluva scoring combo. Now (G) Derik Kumigai just needs to pick it up.
N/A


6.


QIK


(1-1)


The Quicks proved they in both games they can score. They also proved they can't play defense. But with veterans (G) Dave Wong and (F) Can Zhu filling in, that should improve. Both know how to win games.
N/A



7.



TAJ



(0-2)



TAJ picks up another solid rookie in (F) Ed Fish who might be the fourth Joe to win the Rookie award. Unfortunately, his play hasn't turned out wins. The truth is, as good as (G) Charles Lam and (G) James Lam can be, they're streaky. TAJ needs a lights out shooter to spread the court.
         

Observations... Quicks are giving up 86 ppg... yes, that's a record... Jiang Yu is 8th in the league in FT% at 17%... that's 1 for every 6 FTs... Elbert Kwak AKA "Dr. Giggles" went on vacation to keep his 7 bpg on the leaderboard an extra week... who's benefited most from the upgraded GOD run & gun... "Black Rob"... because he follows the shot... BIRTHDAY SHOUTS to Bobby Kwak, Roger Redhead, Bryant Picone and Commish, Ren "the Golden Child" Hsieh... but call him "Rain" till he gets a hair cut.
