2K8 WIN Top Plays of Week 5 & 6
Week 5 & 6 are finally up... we apologize for the delay but aside from Duke attending to "family" business, we're getting a lot of copyright heat from YouTube... sell outs. But Duke always comes through with a hot piece. So, without further ado... -- FBNYC
2K8 WIN Weekly Power Rankings (Wk 7)
Who wants to play Initial D?
As the Top 3 teams assert themselves, the bottom angle for INI in the 1st rd
Well, right now it's pretty clear who the big dogs are... Slayers, Fury and Dogs in that order, the three best teams in the league. INI is salvaging what might've been a wasted season and they're looking a little respectable. They just need to work on locking down that interior D. The rest all have some positives but a whole lot more negatives. They're fighting just to avoid the Top 3 in the 1st rd. Peep the rankings! -- C. B. Lee
FBNYC 2K8 WIN Power Rankings - Week 7 (01.10.09)
The league's best D has a genuinely explosive offense so long as (F) Harris Chung shows. (C) Jiang Yu and the vets have been solid in supporting roles all season. If there was MVPs for sidekicks, (F) Jeff Tu and (G) Drew Chen would be front-runners.
Team idle in Week 7.
Those weren't the real Dogs on Saturday but (F) Min Park is back and he doesn't look like he's lost a step or that trigger finger.
INI's finally getting their bearings, finding an identity. (C) Tim Chi gives them presence in the middle and (F) Young Yu is that perimeter threat they've needed. Now if they can only talk (F) John Han out of retirement.
With (C) Alvin Wang and (F) Dave McInnis in the line-up, they kinda look intimidating, especially with the way Wang is asserting himself in the paint. But they still need a healthy Commish to get to the next level.
Against slower teams, they keep things close but they haven't won since Wk 1. (G) James Lam needs to get outta this slump. Lam was one of last season's most improved players, is there an award for the least?
Titans are only as good as captain (F) Brian Sun. When he's hungry, so are they. If TNS are the Constructicons then Sun's the head of Destructor, they can't transform without him. Everybody's gotta play with injuries.
Observations... KP3 KP3 KP3... too much sweet potato pie? ...Harris Chung still looks rusty... if 21-9-8 is rusty, take it... Andrew Hara is just the kind of team-first player GOD needs... too bad he's injured... "Mr. Smiley" is picking it up now... and just in time... Champions League Wk 6 Standings (Top 4 of 12): Go Get Your Refund (B. Sun) 75-42-4... Nvr Gona Give You Up (A. Wang) 68-48-5... The Commissionaires (R. Hsieh) 70-50-1... Duke's Revenge (D. Hogwild) 66-53-2
2K8 WIN Players of the Week (Wk 7)
Rob Lee (RVD) G | 6-2 | 190 lbs Week 7 Stats PPG: 27.0 RPG: 13.0 APG: 5.0
The Dogs don't have a lot of depth but anyone of their starters could be an All-Star this season. Sharpshooting (G) Rob Lee proves the point with a stellar all-around game. RU: H. Chung (SLA) 21 pts, 9 reb
Young Yu (INI) F | 6-1 | 190 lbs Week 7 Stats PPG: 19.0 RPG: 8.0 APG: 3.0
"Butter" keeps doing it and doing it well. He's got INI on their first win streak of the 2K8 WIN season and back into relevance. D-town finally has their scorer.
RU: A. Wang (GOD) 23 pts, 4 blk
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
Dan Kim (TAJ) 17 pts, 12 rebs, 3 stls The "Underpants Gnome" stole more than just that in an uptempo game vs. INI. How about a career-high 12 rebs for the diminuitive guard.
Runner-up: A. Wang (GOD) 6 rebs, 3 stls, 4 blks
Defensive Player of the Week John Lim (INI) 3 rebs, 5 stls
Lim was flying all over the court vs. TAJ. His key steals in the 2nd half helped INI secure their 2nd straight win and third of the season.
RU: J. Yu (SLA) 3 blk; H. Chung (SLA) 3 stl, 2 blk
Fantasy Line of the Week H. Chung (SLA) 21 pts, 9 reb, 8 ast, 3 stl, 2 blk
INI (F) Young Yu goes down the pike for 2 of his 17 2nd half pts, leading D-town to their 2nd straight win.
MLK HS, NYC --INI vs. TAJ has never been an easy game to call, with TAJ garnering its share of upsets through INI's dominant seasons. Both of these long time ORC stalwarts entered Week 7 trying to solidify or improve their playoff position.
The Joes started off with higher energy, looking to push the ball in transition every chance against the bigger but slower D-town. Despite a strong half from TAJ (G) Dan Kim (9 pts, 6 rebs in the 1st) and his work on the offensive (more...)
