NEW YORK CITY -- We finally have a championship game. This one has been in the making since July 25. Its gonna be a David and Goliath type of match-up. The powerhouse Monkey Kings will take on a surprising BK All Day squad that has upset their way through the playoffs, knocking off the 3rd and 1st seeds to reach the chip.

The Kings have the best roster in the league up and down with former MVP (G) Nick Mui at the helm. He will keep the game uptempo and (F) Paul Flowers will back him up on the finish and on D.

Perhaps BKA isn't that much of a surprise, they aren't that far removed from a championship themselves. But, its a new roster with (G) Rommel Dolar leading the way. He's been unstoppable this season but its been a long layoff. This game is as easy to call as a coin flip. -- Jeff Van Ghandi

Match-Up
(G) Nick Mui



A



A



(G) Rommel Dolar



Mui may be the fastest end-to-end player in the league but Dolar may be the hardest to keep in front. They are former teammates, and have seen each other many times.
(G) Mike Chan



B+



B+



(G) Taha Allasari



What you get in Chan is a fundamentally sound (G) with great footwork and a reliable jumper. Allasari is a bit more of a wild card but he is streaky, and can light it up if hot.
(F) Paul Flowers



A+



A



(F) Honey Tufail



Flowers is probably the RED's best all around player and perhaps most athletic. He can do it all. Tufail has been a complete surprise in the post-season, nearly unstoppable so far.
(F) George Chan



C+



B+



(F) Cedric Baptiste



The captain, Chan, brings playoff physicality to every game. He will do the dirty work, so to speak. Baptiste has been solid all season on the boards and scoring when needed.
(C) David Wiggins



B+



B



(C) Will Rodriguez



Wiggins hasn't played much but at 6-7, he will be the biggest player on the court. For Rodriguez, he needs to do what he does best, eat up the paint and rebound.
BENCH
(G) Ian Yu
(F) Kevin Quach


B+




B




BENCH
(G) James Gonzales
(G) Shaun Gonzales
(F) Tom Allcox

Kings have a former MVP off the bench in Yu and a knockdown 3-pt shooter with Quach but not much depth. BK brings in veteran play with pedigree. Gonzales brothers know how to win. Allcox is a great utility man.

As usual, Picone was the most imposing big man in the paint this season. Just his presence is enough to alter shots. His hustle makes it even tougher.

You always know what you're gonna get with James. A hard nosed effort with composure of a champ. TAL was never out of a game with James at helm.
