2K10 SPR Week 2 Power RankingsFBNYC, 2.18.10
Hypebeasts impressive atop league's elite

Three teams look strong in the early going but none more than HYP

After a strong start by the NYC Quicks, it looked like the power structure was ready to change but an impressive 2nd half rally by the Hypebeasts in their Week 2 match-up kept things basically as they had been predicted in the Season Preview. There are some bonafide scorers in the league this season but so far, it's been defense that's secured the W's. Peep the rankings! -- Kenny "The Jet" Li

FBNYC 2K10 SPR Power Rankings (Week 4)
Diff. Rank Team Record Comments




Last season the Hypebeasts went in to occasional scoring droughts. Now, with (G) Sam Jenkins assisting reigning MVP (G) Ian Yu, that shouldn't be a problem. (F) Amin Gillespie and (F) Mamadou Hanne have been solid on D, filling in for the departed (F) James Li and (F) Jason Wu.




The Quicks have a lot of skill players and veteran leadership. They are significantly slower than their first incarnation that went to the Chip but they have another full season to adapt.




Fury looked rusty as a unit on Saturday but still manged to hold off a scrappy Crossbearers team. NYF might have their deepest line-up in recent history as rookie (F) Seho Lee has fit in well and (G) Joe Kim, despite some rust, hasn't missed a beat.




This team already looks much better with (F) Yoshi Kagitomi and (G) Jason Chin taking significant roles. (F) Wilson Wang should give them enough firepower to really start making waves.




The Crossbearers are the youngest team in the league besides maybe the Hypebeasts but the significant difference between the two teams is killer instinct. They have the talent. They just need to play to win.




Default low-ranking for a free agent team but they won't be here long. Much-heralded RED league rookies (F) Nick Watson and (G) Leuis Ng, make the jump to BLUE. (F) Rob Toste and (F) Malik Taylor will join as well as the one and only (F) Nic Echevestre.

Observations... T-Mac to the Knicks, who wants tix? ...big ups to FBNYC Fury repping Asian Americans in the Houston St. YMCA league... Double-OT win vs. the defending champs last night... lot of candidates to lead the league in scoring this season... Joe Kim, Sam Jenkins, Ren Hsieh and yes, Nic Echevestre...  Ian Yu is now the self-proclaimed "Yulogy"... where, oh where can George Chan be?

2K10 SPR Weekly Player Awards (Weeks 1 & 2)FBNYC, 2.16.10
Sam Jenkins (HYP)
G | 6-2 | 180 lbs
Week 1 & 2 Stats
PPG: 18.0
FG%: .500
RPG: 6.0

He's led the team in scoring in their two wins, making 8 3FGs in the process, more than any other player in the league so far. There's no doubt, Jenkins has been an instant impact as HYP's latest backcourt addition in a team full of solid guards.

Runner-Up: Yoshi Kagitomi (AOD) 18 pts, 14 rebs
Ren Hsieh (QIK)
G | 5-9 | 160 lbs
Week 1 & 2 Stats
PPG: 17.5
FG%: .591
APG: 3.0

Hsieh has been working almost a year recovering from a torn meniscus and osteoarthritis. It looks, through 2 gms, like he's back. The veteran is shooting more efficiently than ever and leading a talented QIK team that should be a contender.

Runner-Up: Shaun Young (QIK) 15.5 ppg, 6 rpg
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers

Yoshi Kagitomi (AOD) 18 pts, 12 rebs

The former JBL pro is simply ageless. Even at 36, Kagitomi will likely be the league's most complete big. Scoring, defense and everything in-between.

Runner-Up: David Li (CRB) 6 rpg, 1 bpg
Defensive Player of the Week

Bryant Picone (NYF) 12 rebs, 3 blks

The defending Defensive MVP might just be the best ever in the league. And, he looks like he keeps getting bigger. Dominant in NYF's opener.

Runner-Up: James Li (CRB) 7.5 rpg, 2 bpg
The High-5 Club

Eugene Cleghorn (QIK) 1-6-2-2-1

Shaun Young (QIK) 15-4-2-2-1

Discorama Rookie of the Week

Mike Chan (CRB) 11 pts, 6 reb, 4 stl

Chan has been up and down on the offense end but the skill set is there. A silky smooth scorer, Chan's made his biggest impact on D so far.

Runner-Up: E Cleghorn (QIK) 4.5 ppg, 5 rpg, 2 spg
The "John Starks" Award

James Li (CRB) | 3-14 FGs (.214)

Don't mistake this for Li being a selfish player. He's too unselfish and not shooting good shots with enough confidence. Shoot the ball.

Dishonorable Mention: Mike Chan (CRB) 4-13 FGs

The "Chris Dudley" Award

Dave Wong (QIK) | 1-5 FTs (.200)

Wong is a 70% FT shooter which isn't great but 1-5 FTs in a close one won't do. QIK, uncharacteristically lost this game at the line.

Dishonorable Mention: E. Cleghorn (QIK) 1-4 FTs

FBNYC Game of the Week

After 4 1st qtr 3FGs from QIK (G) Ren Hsieh, HYP (G) Samuel Jenkins returns the favor with the last of his 4 3rd qtr 3FGs, almost single-handedly erasing HYPs' 15-pt deficit.
Hype overcomes 15-pt deficit in comeback win

MLK HS, NYC -- In the lead up to this Game of the Week, much was made of the amount of firepower each side did or didn't have. What was erroneously overlooked was the defense. In a game that saw two one-man offensive explosions, from (G) Ren Hsieh to kick things off with 13 pts in the 1st qtr and HYP rookie (G) Samuel Jenkins with 14 pts in the 3rd, it was the defense that made the sealed this win for the underdog Hypebeasts.

With Hsieh (20 pts, 3 asts) rolling in the 1st half and a carousel of defenders unable to stay in front of him, the Quicks jumped out to an early 13-pt lead. (F) Shaun Young also chipped in 16 pts and rebs as everyone on the roster seemed to be feeding off the hot shooting. (more...)
Week 1 & 2 League Highs... Points: Samuel Jenkins (HYP) 24, Ren Hsieh (QIK) 20... 3FGs: Samuel Jenkins (HYP) 6, Ren Hsieh (QIK) 5... Rebounds: Yoshi Kagitomi (AOD) 14, Bryant Picone (NYF) 12...
