2K10 SPR Weekly Player Awards (Week 7)
N. Echevestre (FAS) F | 6-4 | 210 lbs Week 7 Stats PPG: 23.0 3FG: 6.0 RPG: 6.0
Last week, it was partner in crime, (F) Nick Watson, getting the nod but this week, its "the other Nic" Echevestre earning his spot. This might be the only season he'll ever be an "other" anything but with this dynamic duo clicking, FAS is tough.
Runner-Up: Yoshi Kagitomi (AOD) 17 pts, 11 rebs
Joe Kim (NYF) G | 5-11 | 170 lbs Week 7 Stats PPG: 21.0 RPG: 6.0 APG: 7.0
Kim was the best of the ORC in a week short on BLUE league games. Despite the loss, this was vintage Kim. Setting the table for his teammates and breaking his man one-on-one, Kim kept the Fury in step with FAS until the end.
Runner-Up: Mike Chan (CRB) 22 pts, 6 rebs, 2 stls
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
NYC Fury (NYF) 29 rebs, 10 stl, 5 blk
The entire NYF starting 5 made it into the High-5 Club. There's something to be said about that. It was an extraordinary effort despite the loss.
Runner-Up: James Li (CRB) 10 rebs, 4 stls, 3 blks
Defensive Player of the Week
James Li (CRB) 10 rebs, 4 stl, 3 blk
The undersized Li did just about everything he could to give CRB a chance. Between him and (F) Mike Chan, that's a duo for the future.
Runner-Up: Nic Echevestre (FAS) 6 rebs, 3 stl, 1 blk
The High-5 Club Rich Chang (NYF) 7-4-3-2-1 Steven Chen (NYF) 5-3-1-1-1 Alex Cho (NYF) 12-3-6-2-1 Nic Echevestre (FAS) 23-6-5-3-1 Joe Kim (NYF) 21-6-7-1-1 James Li (CRB) 14-10-1-4-3 Nick Mui (AOD) 10-5-7-2-1 Bryant Picone (NYF) 15-7-1-3-1 Roman Perez (FAS) 16-3-9-1-1 Vince Southerland (AOD) 2-7-1-2-1
Discorama Rookie of the Week N. Watson (FAS) 22 pts, 5 asts, 3 stls
Watson led the charge in the 1st half for as he seemed to catch fire, so did his entire team, combining to make 15 3FGs in the game, a season best.
The rookie (F) is avg a league-high 20.8 ppg.
Runner-Up: Mike Chan (CRB) 22 pts, 6 rebs, 2 stls
The "John Starks" Award V. Southerland (CRB) | 1-7 FG (.143)
Southerland contributed a solid floor game but just couldn't get a layup to fall. Good thing Audacity got the win anyway.
Dishonorable Mention: Will Moy (CRB) 0-5 FGs
The Reverse "Chris Dudley" Award Joe Kim (NYF) | 10-10 FTs (1.000)
Forget the Dudleys, we're going with a reverse Dudley this week. NYF (F) Joe Kim went 10-10 from the line en route to 21 pts vs. FAS.
Dishonorable Mention: None worth mentioning

2K10 SPR WEEK 7 RESULTS
The Agents (3-2)
Player of the Game N. Echevestre (FAS) 23 pts, 6 3FG, 6 reb
FAS rookie sensation (F) Nick Watson sinks the game-winner over the out-stretched hand of NYF (C) Bryant Picone.
Agents outlast Fury in barnburner
MLK HS, NYC --This makes two weeks in a row that game the JerseyRack Game of the Week has gone down to the wire. Last week the NYC Quicks came back against the Hypebeasts to force overtime and won it there. This week, the NYC Fury would have the same chance against a fully-loaded FAS team. The Fury, however, led by (G) Joe Kim and (C) Bryant Picone's 21 pts and 15 pts respectively, fell just short in a game many considered to be the best so far this season.
The biggest reason for that is just plain old execution. The Fury ran their sets through Picone and off-the-ball screens for (G) Alex Cho, who set the tone early on for NYF(more...)

2K10 SPR Game of the Week (Wk 7)
NYC Fury (4-1) vs. The Agents (2-2) | Saturday (3/27) 3:15pm @ MLK HS
A. Cho 18.0 ppg 2.2 rpg 2.4 apg 1.4 spg
N. Watson 20.3 ppg 13.7 rpg 2.7 spg 2.3 bpg
ANALYSIS: Reportedly both NYF and FAS will be fielding full rosters which should mean one hell of a game. Though FAS has better overall height 1 through 4, they are undersized in the low-post with all their forwards being natural 3's rather than bigs. Both FAS (F) Nick Watson and (F) Nic Echevestre, however, are versatile and as capable on D as on offense. For the Fury, it's the same old story. They dictate the pace and get it done on defense. Easy points will only come in transition and that will mean stopping the dynamic duo of (G) Joe Kim and (G) Alex Cho.
X-FACTOR: Whenever NYF gets a good game out of (G) Steven Chen or (F) Rich Chang, they win. Both are very making big contributions. For the Agents, (G) Mike Ha has been their best hustle player and utility man but rookie (G) Leuis Ng will have to run the show now that (G) Roman Perez is back in the Dominican pro ranks. -- Jeff Van Ghandi
(G) Steven Chen
(G) Leuis Ng
Chen is a defensive maestro who can bully you physically while Ng has speed and youth. The latter also a weakness.
(G) Alex Cho
(G) Mike Ha
One of the league's most prolific scorers, the FAS tempo should suit Cho fine. Ha is maybe the hardest working man in show business.
(G) Joe Kim
(F) Nic Echevestre
Kim is a former MVP who can do it all. The only reason Echevestre doesn't have a + is FAS hasn't figured out how to use him yet.
(F) Rich Chang
(F) Nick Watson
Chang continues his premier sidekick status while Watson may be the league's premier player. He's the best athlete in the BLUE.
(C) Bryant Picone
(F) Jon Yevin
Picone has meant shut down paints for all other teams, but this one? Yevin, the former African pro is versatile and rugged.
Fury bench is thin this season but rookie (F) Seho Lee has been solid. FAS (F) Rob Toste is MIA for now but (F) Malik Taylor is tough for the Agents and regaining his bearings.
