Clockblockers (72) v. Fury Black (86) recap Player of the Game George Chan (FBK) 17 pts, 10 rebs, 3 asts
Below the Rim (54) v. DL East (58)recap Player of the Game Yoshi Kagitomi (DLE) 17 pts, 9 rebs, 3 blks
The Fury love to run and gun, but they've never done it as well as they are now. And this without the athletic (G) Phil Moon. TCB (G) Young Yu and the Clockblockers did their best to keep up but it wasn't enough (more...)
Every team who's played a game now has a loss which means the mighty Below the Rim has finally fallen. DLE (F) Yoshi Kagitomi was huge in the best match-up this season with BTR (F) Christian Stevens (more...)

2K7 FALL Weekly Power Rankings (Wk 4)
K.J. Li, 11.15.07
Below the Rim still in top form
Rimmers haven't missed a beat since last season's Chip
Below the Rim's 2K6 Fall MVP (F) Christian Stevens is back and better than ever. And BTR is welcoming him back with open arms, making the difference in each of their 3 wins. Meanwhile, the Fury Black still looks tough, even after losing 2K7 SPR MVP (F) Darren Jiang. Adding (F) Tony Hu and (G) Phil Moon to the roster doesn't hurt. Rounding it out is the Fury Blue with another formidable front line and the two newbies, the Clockblockers and some of the Dreamleague's finest on Dreamleague East. -- K.J. Li
KENNY "THE JET" LI'S GAME OF THE WEEK Below the Rim [-3] v. DreamLeague East | O/U: 125
DLE is going to be looking to make some noise all season. None better than to beat the defending Champs. But that's easier said than done. BTR is a 3 point favorite but they're gonna have to score more points than they're used to to win this one. -- K.J. Li
FBNYC 2K7 FALL Power Rankings - Week 4 (11.10.07)
This is the most complete team in the league. The bench is a little short but they have a premium player at every position. Without a doubt, they're the mid-season favorites.
Black just want to get back in the big one and they've committed to that by making some major roster moves. Getting (G) Ren Hsieh back closer to 100% doesn't hurt either.
DLE might be the most talented team in the league. (G) Banglee Takenouchi, (G) Usama Nasrudeen and (F) Yoshi Kagitomi are perennial All-Stars in the DL. Add to that some bigs and last season's slam dunk winner, (F) Varun Bhartiya, and you got yourself a contender.
The Fury Blue have just as formidable (if young) front line as anyone in the league and their young guards are starting to get in the swing of things. They'll need the regular season to build chemistry, but a deep playoff run is more than a possibility.
The Clockers have talent at the guard spots but they're struggling to find consistent scoring in the paint. Shooters they got, but they're gonna need (F) Kevin Forde to start dunking more than drop passes.
No games played yet.
Observations... DLE (G) "Bang" Takenouchi just might get the most highlight clips this season, but the Commish shouldn't be far behind... Roger Redhead will shoot and when he's makin' them like he was last week, lights out... FBE (C) Rich Chang is quietly putting up a solid season... poor segue, dunks... the question isn't IF anyone will dunk anymore, but when and who... I've got my money on Pogo... but K-Forde looks ready to blow... no games next week for Turkey Day... have a good one.
