2K8 SUM Week 7 Power Rankings
Dogs still on top
RVD keeps the pressure on the rest of the league to keep up
It's been the season of the hustler. Almost every team has a potential "Larry Flynt" winner on the squad. GOD has (F) Joe Ahn, last season's Sixth Man Award Winner, TAJ has (F) Kane Kim and (F) Sung Choi, RTS has (F) James Tao, BMS has (F) Alex Shu, BTP has (F) Sam Lo, FAD has (G) Jon Wu... and now RVD has energizer bunny on a pogo stick (F) Jae Won Joo back. It never gets any easier does it? Peep the rankings! -- C. B. Lee
FBNYC 2K8 SUM Power Rankings - Week 7 (08.23.08)
Juggs is back with a brand new invention. The returning Champs just keep looking better. (F) Jae Won Woo is back, (C) Elbert Kwak and (G) Henry Jun are returning. The path to the Chip runs through here.
This is Joes' business as usual. Rookie (F) Kane Kim makes up with strength and fire what he lacks in height, the logjam of guards also means they have superior ball-handling. Backup rookie (G) Dan Kim could be a starter on any other team in the league. Having (C) Mark Kiang might make TAJ the team to beat in the ORC.
Tough loss for GOD, offense looked surprisingly out of sync despite (G) Ren Hsieh's 28 pts. 15 TOs is out of character. Hsieh can use the Labor Day weekend to recover. The stretch run lies ahead.
This is what happens when you're idle.
Suddenly FAD has some depth and they're right in the mix. (F) Nick Gao's size and versatile game will be a difference over the stretch run. More consistent 3-pt shooting, though, might still be on the wish list.
The House didn't look so good last Saturday. No transition defense, means easy baskets for the other team, which means fewer transition baskets for HOP, meaning the House has to work for every shot. Who knew the way to stop HOP's offense is with more offense?
(G) John Park pulling time at the point lets (G) Alex Cho be the scorer he needs to be. New addition (F) Dave Kim is a one-man game changer; these changes all make it easier for everyone else.
Team didn't make game. Replay is scheduled.
Now the roster is just not showing up at all. Desperation time for the Bombers here. Even if it's just to keep this season from becoming a win-less one.
Observations... Kerri Walsh award for the best volleyball spike again goes to Dave Kim... more Dan Kim... more Dan Kim... more Dan Kim... and while we're on Kims, Kane Kim is the Pacifier... Jae Won Woo is The Rocketeer... AKA Captain Kangaroo... Nick Gao is Unicron...
2K8 SUM Players of the Week (Wk 7)
Min Park (RVD) F | 5-11 | 175 lbs Week 7 Stats PPG: 35.0 RPG: 6.0 APG: 3.0
This is the 2nd time Park has put 35 pts on the board in 2K8 SUM and there's still 4 gms left for the Dogs this season. RVD's dynasty hopes look like they're in good hands. RU: C. Youn (RVD) 19pts, 10rebs
Yea, G.o.D. lost but this idiot dropped 28 pts on a bum right knee and sprained left ankle. At one point he hit 4 straight 3FGs in 2:30. And most of those 28 pts came off one leg.
RU: J. Choi (FAD) 19 pts, 6 asts
The "Larry Flynt" Award Kane Kim (TAJ) 7 pts, 6 rebs
It's getting to be that every team needs one of these guys. They get down and dirty, clean up the boards and do whatever it takes to win.
Runner-up: J. Joo (RVD) 14 rebs, 3 stls
Defensive Player of the Week Jon Wu (FAD) 6 rebs, 1 stl
A week after Stephen Chen harassed James Choi into 1-12 shooting, Jon Wu pesters no less than HOP (G) Kevin Park to 7 pts on 2-9 FGs.

The "John Starks" Award Kevin Park (HOP) | 2-9 FGs (.222)

Runner-up: Richard Lee (TAJ) 1-7 FGs (.143)
The "Chris Dudley" Award N. Choo (BMS) | 5-10 FTs (.500)
Choo got to the line plenty, he even shot technical foul shots for the Bombers, he just didn't make too many of them.

FBNYC GAME OF THE WEEK
GOD, without captain (G) Ren Hsieh, regroups on the team bench after their Week 7 loss to the Reservoir Dogs.
Res. Dogs (69) v. G.o.D. (65)recap Player of the Game Min Park (RVD) 35 pts, 6 rebs, 3 asts
MLK HS, NYC -- RVD (F) Chris Younstarted this season off like it was business as usual. 15 pts, 14 rebs and win vs. GOD. Then he seemed to lose interest, prioritized other tourneys and suddenly, Youn found himself injured for 2 gms. His return to the court last week vs. HOP couldn't save the Dogs from their first loss of the season. Youn didn't look too strong either, finishing with career lows in scoring and assists, not to mention a dubious fall that became the highlight of the week.(more...)
