SCOUTING REPORT: You could not have scripted a better championship game than this. Before the 2K11 SUM season, the respective captains of our two finalists who happen to be long-time friends, (C) Len Kamdang (GOD) and (G) Andrew Hara (BLB), had already begun a war of words. Kamdang had pegged Hara's BLB team as no better than B League competition, which is how B League At Best's franchise tag was coined. They have come along way since then.

There are parallels between B League At Best and last summer's Game of Deatheaters, known then as Audacity of Dope. Both were on the low side of the playoff seeding and both made improbable post-season runs in a series of upsets over heavily favored opponents. But, AOD fell short in the finals to a powerhouse NYC Fury team. The Deatheaters are now that powerhouse team but there's a bigger chip to be reconciled here
. This is a genuine grudge match, this is going to be one to remember. -- FBNYC

GOD Scouting Report: They are led by (G) Garrett James, a shoe-in now for the season MVP. He is their focal point, thriving on turning TOs into easy points. GOD also has (G) Kash Miah, one of the league's premier sharpshooters, always a threat on offensive. On D, they are anchored by (C) Brian O'Neill's size and (F) Lamar Smith's attitude and killer instinct. The supporting cast is built on that approach with (G) Drew Chen's D and breakdown ability while Kamdang and (F) Jeremy Bell provide plenty of beef. (F) Dave Liu also gives a more mobile look at the (F) position.

BLB Scouting Report: The Besties have a similar approach, they grind it out. BLB is a physical team led offensively by shooter (G) Karl Gusner and athletic (F) Pascal Dabel. Rumor has it, however, that Gusner is out. They do, however, have a not-so-secret weapon in HS senior (G) Josh Coleman off the bench. The young spark plug is like lightning in a bottle and, as he displayed in last week's upset win over top seed MNK, he can take over games when they need it most. (G) Dennis Blanchette and (C) Tracy Wright, a machine on the glass, are both very capable of filling in for Gusner offensively. They have won without him before and may have to do it again.

SCOUTING REPORT: The Kings have been the most dominant team in the league with an unblemished record but no undefeated team has won a BLUE chip yet. The pressure is on MNK. B League already upset their 1st rd opponent, defending champions NYC Fury. Everything now is gravy.

MNK will go through (F) Paul Flowers on the perimeter and (F) Tony Hu in the paint. A tough 1-2 punch, then add in (G) Nick Mui out on the break and you have an offensively explosive team. BLB will do their best to contain the Kings with physical defense and timely baskets. BLB (G) Karl Gusner has been lights out lately as well as (F) Pascal Dabel.

X-FACTOR
: Whether or not Mui can create easy transition buckets for MNK will be key to making it easier for the Kings. But, even if he doesn't, they have plenty of weapons. If BLB can get solid play from (G) Josh Coleman, they'll have an explosive weapon off the bench.

SCOUTING REPORT: After an early season no. 1 ranking, GOD has had their ups and downs. Good thing for them, they're up right now, looking primed for a championship run after dispatching last season's finalist, Paid in Full. The Turtles, however, still look like a work in progress. Albeit, a very talented work in progress. They could get this thing together.

GOD (G) Garrett James will lead the way with his ability to get to the rim, which opens up gunner (G) Kash Miah, a knockdown threat. The guards are then backed up with defense. (G) Drew Chen, (C) Brian O'Neill and (F) Jeremy Bell are active on D led by the intensity of (F) Lamar Smith.

The Turtles have lightning quick (G) Troy Talbot leading the way with (G) Marlon Santos starting to find the range. (F) Kareem Corprew was deadly to begin the season but has since tapered off. The Turtles hope to get him going again. This one will go down to the wire. -- FBNYC

James and Talbot will be a fun match-up to watch as it's hard to say if either can stop the other. Both offenses run through these two guards. It will be a battle.

If you want a knockdown shooter, Miah is your man, never lose sight of him. Santos has been inconsistent but can score with the best of them. Defense is the question.

(F) Keith Drysdale

It starts with D with Smith, he wants to and is capable of locking down the other team's best. And, he's been scoring, too. Drysdale is athletic and can knock down the 3.
(F) Jeremy Bell

(F) Brian Womack

Bell is a physical bruiser who is crafty around the paint. Womack is the kind of player you hate until he's on your team. He is fiery intense and has the stamina turned off.

O'Neill is an athletic beast and the lynchpin in GOD's defense. He will make buckets in the paint tough to come by. Corprew has a lot of talent but has been inconsistent.
