2K7 FALL Conference Players of the Week (Wk 1 & 2)
C. Stevens (BTR) F | 6-3 | 195 lbs Week 5 Stats PPG: 13.0 RPG: 8.0 BPG: 1.0
Stevens saves the day as BTR struggled to keep up with the athletic Clock Blockers in the 1st half of their game. Pogo's athleticism was the difference in the 2nd half. He also made a huge difference in their Wk 1 win vs. the Fury Blue.
The Commish kept his team running and gunning against a much bigger Fury Blue team that looked by all accounts to be a heavy favorite. Somehow, they squeaked out a win, but he'll tell you first, it was a total team effort.

KENNY "THE JET" LI'S GAME OF THE WEEK
Fury Black (68) v. Fury Blue (65)recap Player of the Game Ren Hsieh (FBK) 21 pts, 8 rebs, 4 asts, 4 stls
It's always fun when the Black plays Blue... this one was the best game so far this short season. Down to the wire, FBE (F) Al Chung justs misses a 3FG to put this into OT. FBK (G) Ren Hsieh shows that persistent is sometimes better than efficient.

'DJ' is the unanimous choice
Fury forward takes MVP in record-breaking season
There has never been a string of more exciting players come through FBNYC than the past two seasons.
Last season, Christian "Pogo" Stevens swept onto the scene with a dazzling array of dunks, dimes, boards and blocks, easily sweeping up the MVP.
This season, Darren "DJ" Jiang did what should have been impossible. He topped that. With his own array of alley-oop finishes, facials and finding the bucket prolifically from inside and out, DJ's production was unprecedented in FBNYC. His selection as FBNYC MVP was unanimous. Finally finding a offensive system in which he could do his thing, DJ responded night after night with huge numbers, leading his team to a 1st place finish and a Chivas Cup appearance. -- FBNYC Runner-Ups: Tony Hu (CHR), Jon Scheiman (BTR)
The Fluctuations' frontcourt was impenetrable when (C) Brandon Chock, (F) Varun Bhartiya and (F) Punit Menda were --unfortunately, that would only be for three games. All three were Def. MVP candidates, Chock was a cut above.
Defensive MVP Runner-Up: Varun Bhartiya (TFS)
2K7 SPR Most Outstanding Rookie G | Phillip Moon (CHR) | Profile
