FBNYC presents the Winner Take All Asian 3-on-3 Basketball Tourney
Thanks to all the teams and fans who came out to play and support FBNYC's 1st Annual Winner Take All 3-on-3 Asian Basketball Tournament. We hope all the participants had as much fun playing as we did running the tourney. MLK HS was buzzing with anticipation and competitive spirit from the first tip-off.
This event is just the first of many we have planned for the future, so stay tuned. Thanks again to all the teams and organizations for their support. SPECIAL THANKS go out to Mr. Choi's grocery and Larry Chow and Maximum Output for all their help and moral support.
Big ups also go to Coach Jake, the refs, Mr. Gay and Mr. Mobley, as well as Tony Hu, Mo Ghunman, Mark Lee, Sung and Andre from the DL for help getting the word out. Here are the results...
WTA 3-on-3 Champions, NYC Fury (L to R): (F) Rich Chang, (C) John Foss, (G) James Choi and (F) Harris Chung.
Though every team was able to make the playoffs, only (5 seed) Below the Rim, (3) Team SDR, 2) Maximum Output and host team (1) NYC Fury made it through to the Semi-Finals. Team SDR managed to upset the previously undefeated Max Out and the Fury (also undefeated) handled Below the Rim.
The Finals became a showdown between two big and versatile teams but ultimately, Team SDR, with captain (G) Shawn Delos Reyes hobbled by an ankle injury, was outpaced by (C) John Foss and the Fury. NFY jumped out to an early lead thanks to Foss' low-post prowess which better enabled the play-making ability of (F) Chris Youn and (G) James Choi. (F) Harris Chung was solid in his defense of All-Tourney Team (F) Nic Echevestre. The Fury never relinquished that lead despite solid efforts from Delos Reyes, Echevestre and their big man.

All-Tourney Team: H. Chung (NFY), N. Echevestre (SDR), J. Foss (NFY), J. Scheiman (BTR), A. Stewart (MXO)
INTERMEDIATE DIVISION Unfortunately, the INTERMEDIATE Finals were cut short due to unforeseen circumstances. Finalists (8) Hypebeasts and (3) Team Jason Chan relunctantly agreed to split the prize and the trophies. We can't say enough how much we regret the outcome and we will take steps in the future to prevent any such repeat occurrences.

Dogs win in dominant fashion RVD leaves no doubt they're repeat Champs
GAME 1 RECAPby Charles Bok Lee
MLK HS, NYC -- For one half, GOD played perfect team basketball with balanced scoring and tough defense, both things they might've been criticized for not having during the regular season. On the back end of back-to-back playoff games [after a 2nd rd win over TAJ], captain (G) Ren Hsieh knew it was too much to ask his team to maintain an uptempo style. They had to play half-court ball.
And they did to the tune of 34 1st half pts. GOD was shooting 52% (11-21 FGs) from the field, with (F) Johnny Lam leading the way, connecting on 3-3 from behind the arc. Throw in a few gimmick defenses, they shifted from man double on (F) Chris Youn and (F) Min Park to 2-3 zone to triangle-and-2, and GOD had the Dogs baffled in the 1st half. If not for a late RVD run to finish out the half, GOD would have carried a double-digit (more...)
GAME 2 RECAP by Kenny "The Jet" Li
MLK HS, NYC -- After dominating most of Game 1 and letting it slip out of their hands you couldn't blame GOD for looking a little defeated. Battered and beaten up over the Championship weekend and without key big man (F) Kaivan Khoshroo, and potentially (F) Rob Chanthavongsa due to a sprained ankle, the prospects of GOD pulling out two-in-a-row looked bleak at best.
This one was for pride and sometimes those are the hardest ones to play. The Dogs are nothing if not strong closers--they know how to close out a series. They came out strong with no signs of any let-up and forced early GOD TOs. From those TOs, they created easy transition buckets, beating an obviously tired GOD squad up and down the court. (more...)
