Hope all of you enjoyed your birds last night and I hope none of you are Lions fans. Just wanted to remind everyone that there are NO GAMES THIS SATURDAY (11/29) for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Hope all of you enjoy your holiday weekend and try to get on that exercise bike once or twice so nobody gets hurt in Week 4. See you next Saturday. -- Ren, Commissioner, FBNYC
FBNYC presents the Winner Take All Asian 3-on-3 Basketball Tourney
Thanks to all the teams and fans who came out to play and support FBNYC's 1st Annual Winner Take All 3-on-3 Asian Basketball Tournament. We hope all the participants had as much fun playing as we did running the tourney. MLK HS was buzzing with anticipation and competitive spirit from the first tip-off.
This event is just the first of many we have planned for the future, so stay tuned. Thanks again to all the teams and organizations for their support. SPECIAL THANKS go out to Mr. Choi's grocery and Larry Chow and Maximum Output for all their help and moral support.
Big ups also go to Coach Jake, the refs, Mr. Gay and Mr. Mobley, as well as Tony Hu, Mo Ghunman, Mark Lee, Sung and Andre from the DL for help getting the word out. Here are the results...
WTA 3-on-3 Champions, NYC Fury (L to R): (F) Rich Chang, (C) John Foss, (G) James Choi and (F) Harris Chung.
Though every team was able to make the playoffs, only (5 seed) Below the Rim, (3) Team SDR, 2) Maximum Output and host team (1) NYC Fury made it through to the Semi-Finals. Team SDR managed to upset the previously undefeated Max Out and the Fury (also undefeated) handled Below the Rim.
The Finals became a showdown between two big and versatile teams but ultimately, Team SDR, with captain (G) Shawn Delos Reyes hobbled by an ankle injury, was outpaced by (C) John Foss and the Fury. NFY jumped out to an early lead thanks to Foss' low-post prowess which better enabled the play-making ability of (F) Chris Youn and (G) James Choi. (F) Harris Chung was solid in his defense of All-Tourney Team (F) Nic Echevestre. The Fury never relinquished that lead despite solid efforts from Delos Reyes, Echevestre and their big man.

All-Tourney Team: H. Chung (NFY), N. Echevestre (SDR), J. Foss (NFY), J. Scheiman (BTR), A. Stewart (MXO)
INTERMEDIATE DIVISION Unfortunately, the INTERMEDIATE Finals were cut short due to unforeseen circumstances. Finalists (8) Hypebeasts and (3) Team Jason Chan relunctantly agreed to split the prize and the trophies. We can't say enough how much we regret the outcome and we will take steps in the future to prevent any such repeat occurrences.
