2K11 SUM Season Preview
Every summer it just gets better and better. The competition level is at an all-time high, this should make for some great games and some even better highlights. The defending champs are back but missing half their roster, who knows how they'll pick up the slack. 2K10 WIN finalists Paid in Full is back as well but stumbled in their opener. Can Game of Deatheaters really be the team to beat already? We'll just have to play it out and see. It's gonna be a doozy. -- The Jet

|2K11 SUM PRE-SEASON RANKINGS
||The two-time defending champs are back so they're the default no. 1 but they've lost (G) Garrett James to GOD. Now, for even worse news, it looks like they've lost (F) Shawn Delos Reyes for the season and (C) Ezra Hoover's knee has kept him out indefinitely. Not a good start.
||Paid in Full fell just short of a championship in their first season. They're athletic and bring a lot of energy. (G) Will Smallwood and (F) Rahmel Miller might be the best athletes in the league but (G) Antonio Hunter and (C) Eldridge Bracey are their anchors. They will contend
||You want beef? Game of Deatheaters has it. With a front-line of (F) Len Kamdang, (F) Lamar Smith and (C) Brian O'Neill, GOD might have the toughest interior in the league. And, they have (G) Garrett James and (G) Jon Scheiman in the backcourt with (G) Drew Chen. Not too shabby.
||Captain (F) "Crazy" George Chan brings back his lovable band of misfits. But, these guys are ready to make a move. (G) Nick Mui and (F) Joe Vines are playing their best basketball right now and a championship run this season is not out of the question.
|| They were the surprise of 2K11 WIN as the Ninjas but the Fire Turtles roster will be slightly different. (G) Wilson Lew brings back athletic (F) Keith Drysdale and introduces former Rutgers-Newark (G) Kenny Yu. Lew will also bring in some younger players. It's a youth movement.
||Real People is still trying to decide on their status for this season but if they play, you have another potential contender right away. (F) Kevin Green was the biggest and most powerful player in the league last year and few are as versatile as (F) Mike Barnes.
||We weren't sure what to make of BLB when ranking the teams but after seeing them beat PIF in a gritty defensive battle, they will surely finish better than 7th. They have a lot of new talent but lightning quick (G) Josh Coleman will be one to watch.
||The MonStars struggled in the 2K10 SUM season, mostly due to poor attendance. But, when (F/C) Nick Harrington (21.2 ppg, 9.8 rpg) shows up, they have a chance to win every game.
||We don't know too much about their roster but (F) Nate Igbowu showed solid work in the paint and on the boards in their opener. Sharpshooting (G) Andy Singleton and (F) Telly Avilla return.
||This is a default rating for the Free Agent team until they get their roster straight. Right now, they're not looking too shabby. (G) Marlon Santos and (F) Steve Liebert along with (G) Leuis Ng are the returning players who are committed so far. (G) Arnell Milton may also join.
This probably doesn't need to be said but none of this is meant to be taken too seriously. Play on, players.
