2K8 SUM Top Plays of Week 9
Got buckets? We got 'em right here. With Harris and the Commish pulling out the bag of tricks on the assists. And "Messiah" and "Choir Boy" explain themselves. Name those tunes first and get a free JR lanyard. -- C. B. Lee
2K8 SUM Week 9 Power Rankings
The Contenders are ready
Playoff picture is already clear heading into Week 10 There isn't too much left to settle in Week 10. Dogs are still the favorites. The best contenders GOD, RTS and FAD can still build momentum moving in but they'll all have to survive the 1st rd single-elimination. TAJ still has an outside chance of winning the ORC regular season Championship if they beat GOD and FAD loses. The rest just want to win one--it might be their last of the season. Peep the rankings! -- C. B. Lee
FBNYC 2K8 SUM Power Rankings - Week 9 (09.13.08)
2K8 SPR MVP, 2K8 SPR Scoring Champion, 2K8 SPR Championship MVP, that's translated to an 8-1 record this season. Dogs are ready to repeat.
Convincing win vs. HOP means they can half-court well enough to back up their full-court. Depth in the front-court--see (F) Kaivan Khoshroo--looks good for the playoffs. A win this week secures the ORC Championship.
Bomb Squad sure knows how to make a team look good. (F) Harris Chung is back for the playoff run; he's like Cup o' Noodles... he makes RTS instant contenders.
Again, BMS is like having Nicole Ritchie around. You always come out looking better. With (C) Brian Strebel returning to the line-up and (F) John Lim increasing his role, Death definitely looks good for the playoffs but it's just not all that convincing, what do they do when Ritchie bails?
Joes are sliding no doubt, they lost 2-in-a-row now, but a win this week will not only give them another shot to win the ORC but give them a lot of momentum going into the postseason.
It won't matter if they win Week 10 or who HOP plays in the 1st rd of the playoffs. It only matters that they win. They create the matchups, they dictate the pace. They just need to win.
Pats actually look pretty good out there. Solid win over TAJ without (F) Dave Kim on the floor. BTP has an undersized but athletic and very deep frontcourt; and (G) Alex Cho and (G) John Park hitting their strides at just the right time. Pats can definitely play spoiler.
SoJu has one more shot to stay avoid the 8th seed. They'll have to beat the surging Pats. Either way, the best they can do might be to go Butch Cassidey and take out as many teams as they can on the way out.
One more chance to prevent a winless season.
Observations... BIG UPS TO SAM "TAZ" LO IN HK!!! ...hope the site isn't banned in China... get me a bootleg Takashi Murakami/Louis Vuitton print basketball! ...the "Khoshroo curse" is broken... for now... Harris Chung is a robot... no, an agent... choose the blue pill... or is it the red? ...John Park is back

"The Phenom" is back on the court after an extended stay on the injured list. He looks like he's back to speed. After a career-high 19 rebs vs. GOD, Chung follows with 18 more. RU: J. Park (BTP) 20 pts, 10 rebs
