Young Yu (TCB) G | 6-1 | 190 lbs Weeks 10 & 11 Stats PPG: 18.5 RPG: 4.5 SPG: 1.0
Despite their team's inability to win a game this season, Yu kept his Clockers squad in most of them with his ability to score in bunches. With TCB often short-handed and gunner Mark Yiin MIA, "Butter" often found himself the only option.
B. Takenouchi (DLE) G | 5-10 | 155 lbs Weeks 10 & 11 Stats PPG: 15.5 APG: 8.5 3FG%: .700
Bang makes this game look easy sometimes. A penchant for timely 3FGs, flashy dimes and a rough crossover dribble, Bang is making a name for himself in his rookie FBNYC season. Now, he's helped lift his DL East team to the playoff's no. 1 seed.

Part II of the Fury grudge match had Blue feeling they should win. Riding on the heels of a 4-gm win streak and feeling like the Black stole Game 1, the Blue marched in with only the no. 1 seed on their mind. more...
With Fury Black knocking off the Blue, all Dreamers had to do was beat the TCB to secure the no. 1 seed in the playoffs next week. Captain (F) Brian Yang made sure of it with his career-high 16 pts on 7-11 FGs. more...
Up yours, New England.
2K7 FALL Weekly Power Rankings (Wk 10)
Dreamers are coming together, but Fury Blue is no. 1
Season's longest win streak puts Fury Blue atop the rankings.
It must look a little strange to have a 4-3 team top two 5-2 squads in the PR but it's not where you been it's where you're at. FB squads are risin' and fallin' like the Dow Jones. Don't put the house on any one team to finish out no. 1... and don't bet that team is a lock to win it all. -- K.J. Li
FBNYC 2K7 FALL Power Rankings - Week 10 (01.26.08)
There the hottest team in the league and they had the week off. Four straight wins is no small feat. They'll try to make it 5 on Saturday to lock up the no. 1 seed by beating rival Fury Black.
They've looked inconsistent for much of the season, but it finally looks like DLE is starting to gel and just at the right time.
(F) Tony Hu and the Fury Black are an offensive powerhouse, but if you can't get guys to show, you can't win in the playoffs. Bringing (G) Eddie Shieh out of retirement to run point will be huge for FBK.
Rimmers are laying in the cut, waiting for the playoffs. The question is will their backcourt be available? Meanwhile, they've locked up the 4th seed and are looking forward to their matchup with TCB.
TCB is more competitive every game but for one reason or another they can't pull one out. They have bigs, they have scoring. They need (G) Mark Yiin back. Don't count TCB out yet, they don't want to finish 0-8.
Observations... I see George Chan on the FBK roster... where is George Chan? ..."Bang" Takenouchi was All-World last Saturday, 20 and 10, 7-8 shooting? ...berry bananas foster... and didn't break a sweat... seems like every season, just around playoff time, the Commish gets his shooting touch back... do you prefer "Butter" Yu spicy or extra spicy?
