I don't know what the tracks are... somethin' by Serge Tankian sounds like but both of 'em work for me. Min Park is a lefty! Take notes! -- C. B. Lee
2K8 SPR Week 10 Power Rankings
OCC comes right back and sweeps 'better' conference
Does D-town's 31-point loss to the Pats show signs of weakness?
Well, I'm not ashamed to admit when I'm wrong. ORC, you can blame me, just when I go and say definitively that the ORC is the best conference, the OCC comes in and spanks every last one of y'all. So I don't know who should be more embarrassed. Peep the rankings! -- Charles Bok Lee
FBNYC 2K8 SPR Power Rankings - Week 10 (04.12.08)
Ugly... and they have no excuse. The Pats simply enforced their will on D-town, something even the mighty RTS never did. That makes two letdowns this season. But in the playoffs, that's all it'll take.
Nobody handles D-town like that... nobody but a real contender. If (G) Alex Cho is on, the Pats defense is good enough to do the rest. That's dangerous come playoff time.
Gunners got cocky, tried to coast through PS1 to gear up for ORC rival, Fury Grey. Didn't work but it was a wake-up call--even if it makes it real tough to hold 2nd in the ORC. RNG handled the Fury like a team on a mission, the only way they'll advance in the post-season.
(F) Chris Youn and (F) Min Park gave you a taste last Saturday of just what its like when they're both on point. Michael Jackson dangerous. If the Dogs take the OCC, give Youn the MVP trophy.
They've been a little short-handed lately, but not without talent to win. (F) Andrew Deleon's just gotta get his FG% up if he's gonna be the squad's primary scorer. Otherwise, feed it to (G) Eden Chuang of (F) Sonny Wang. (F) Jason Chan could be tough down the stretch.
Time idle during Week 10
They need (C) Mark Kiang back. He solidifies the middle on offense and defense and is the kind of all-around player that his teammates can benefit from. Without him, this is about what you can expect.
PS1 proved you can't look past any team in this league. The energy they brought to TAJ two weeks ago combined with a rejuvenated (C) Alvin Wang is the old OCC Champion 1-ers shining through. Bringing (F) Will Lee Manu-style off the bench is genius.
Observations... did anyone else see NFG's Jason Chan volleyball spike the Commish twice... was it just me or was there a bit of extra spicy in that sauce for a former teammate... o where, o where has Dave Kim gone... while we're at it, where's "Butter" Yu... "Minigun" Park is hitting the mark and he's got a full clip... Alex Cho will temporarily be known as "Red Dragon Gang Member #6"... look it up.
KP3 was on fire in March and he had to be with back court mate (G) Young Yu out of the line-up. After a slow start, Park was back to his MVP form averaging 20.3 ppg, 8.0 rpg on .489 FG% in 3 straight games after an early March loss. (HOP March record: 3-2)
After an early March loss to the Average Joes, Son led his INI squad to 4 consecutive wins which including a near quadruple-double (12 pts, 8 rebs, 7 asts, 9 stls) vs. fellow stat-stuffer RVD (F) Chris Youn and the Dogs on March 8th. (INI March record: 4-1)
