|2K11 SUM Power Rankings||FBNYC, 7.1.11|
Deatheaters first in class
Game takes down Fury to top power rankings
This wasn't all that unexpected. With a great mix of offense in (G) Garrett James and (G) Kash Miah and defense in (F) Lamar Smith and (F) Brian O'Neill with plenty of glue guys in between, GOD may be the deepest and most balanced team in the league. But, there's no rest for no. 1, the Peoplez Choice is looking just as strong right now with a full roster. And, a new addition by the Fire Turtles has suddenly taken them to another level. This is a four horse race right now and maybe more. -- FBNYC
|FASTBREAK NYC 2K11 SUM Power Rankings (July 1, 2011)
||There is no better combination of offense and defense in the league that we have seen so far. (G) Garrett James is the motor on offense, (F) Lamar Smith pushes GOD on defense. (F) Jeremy Bell has been a hoss on the boards. This is a deep team with only one goal in mind. To win.
||It's always hard to know what to expect from a new team but (G) Andy Singleton's team has shown us something now. They have tons of guard talent and very big men in the paint. (G) Ju Ju Mansour and (G) John Quintana are a deadly combo. And, (C) Steven Rivera is a load.
||Despite the loss, the Fury are still a very balanced team of veterans that have played together more than any other team in the league. They're still easing (C) Ezra Hoover (knee) back into the fold. (G) Joe Kim will take over the reins as the Fury's go-to guard.
||The Turtles were already athletic with plenty of talented perimeter players in (G) Troy Talbot and (F) Keith Drysdale. The addition of (C) Kareem Corprew gives them an elite big that lifts them to a new level.
||Without even playing one game yet this season, the Monkey Kings retain a 5 spot. It's because of who is on the roster. 2K11 SPR Red MVP (G) Nick Mui will helm with (F) Joe Vines and (F) Tony Hu to assist. Also, word has it that the Kings have a 7-footer on the roster.
||What B League At Best has clearly shown is that they will compete. They are a scrappy, physical team that just needs a little more consistency on the offensive end. (F) Pascal Dabel and (C) Tracy Wright has made for a very solid front court.
||This isn't the fast start Paid in Full jumped out to last season but with a win under their belt, they can regather their bearings. (F) Rahmel Miller is coming on so don't expect them to stay in the lower half much longer.
||The good news is that United Nations (C) Nick Harrington has finally joined the roster. And, they have been playing teams well, keeping it close. They'll just to find a way to close out now.
This probably goes without saying but none of this is meant to be taken too seriously. Play on, players.
|Observations... looks like a lot of candidates for scoring champ this season... PIF's Chris Johnson did a great job of coaching vs. UNA... if you didn't already know, Jeremy Bell is aka "Captain America"... but then Garrett James is now aka "Batman"... so how do you reconcile the crossover? ...Kareem Corprew already gets a nickname... aka "Godzilla"... terrorizing little people since 1954

|2K11 SUM Players of the Week (June 20-26)||FBNYC, 6.28.11|
|Ju Ju Mansour (PLZ)
G | 6-0 | 190 lbs
Week 3 Stats
Mansour certainly knows how to introduce himself. The Peoplez Choice guard has a lot of swag and plenty of game to back it up. Mansour set the tone for his team, playing their first game with a full roster, they will not back down from anyone.
Runner-Up: John Quintana (PLZ) 20 pts, 6 3FGs
|Troy Talbot (TUR)
G | 6-1 | 165 lbs
Week 3 Stats
Talbot often made it look easy as he seemed to walk into the lane for 16 pts on a whopping 6-6 FGs. The only thing was missing was his FTs. Other than that, MON had little answer for his ability to get to the rim and create for teammates.
Runner-Up: Rahmel Miller (PIF) 15 pts, 4 reb, 2 stl
|The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
Anthony Plunkett (MON) 12 pts, 8 reb
Runner-Up: Mike Nelson (MON) 5 reb, 1 stl, 1 blk
Plunkett took over in the 4th qtr as the MonStars staged an unlikely comeback that just fell short. He was a man possessed.
|Defensive Player of the Week
Kareem Liebert (TUR) 4 reb, 4 blks
Liebert sent shots back with such a sneer of disdain it was as if he was questioning whether the other team even bothered to shoot.
Runner-Up: Rahmel Miller (PIF) 4 reb, 2 stl, 2 blk
|The High-5 Club
Rahmel Miller (PIF) 15-4-2-2-2
Mike Nelson (MON) 9-5-1-1-1
Steven Rivera (PLZ) 2-2-2-1-1
Will Smallwood (PIF) 10-4-1-1-2
|Discorama Rookie of the Week
John Quintana (PLZ) 20 pts, 6 3FGs
Mansour's backcourt mate Quintana made quite a splash himself, hitting his first five 3FGs without touching the rim. He was lights out.
Runner-Up: Mike Merritt (TUR) 8 pts, 6 reb, 1 blk
|The "John Starks" Award
BJ Grant (MON) | 3-13 FGs (.231)
Grant started off hot but then fell off as the game worn on. Not that he wasn't close, those were some of the prettiest misses we've ever seen.
Dishonorable Mention: J. Velazquez (MON) 4-15 FGs
|The "Chris Dudley" Award
Troy Talbot (TUR) | 3-9 FTs (.333)
Talbot did pretty much everything well in his debut except shoot FTs. If he hits all 9, he cracks the 20-pt mark. Turtles won anyway.
Dishonorable Mention: K. Liebert (TUR) 0-4 FTs
