|2K14 SUM Week 2 Power Rankings||FBNYC, 7.15.14|
|Summer 2014 Premier Division Power Rankings - Week 2
||The Breakers get the default no. 1 to start the season due to their back to back championships, but the talent is deep this season. Both titles seemed a little unlikely, but if adding former MVP (G) Garrett James to the roster is any indication, they're not resting on their laurels.
They're back. From what we've seen so far, this is the same roster from last season. It's always been about the playoffs for Basketball Reasons, but just once they need a full roster in a crucial playoff game. The comp isn't getting any easier. Teams are gearing up holding BBR as still the team to beat.
||After a surprise run this spring, MediaBrix looks to build. Back is the dynamic duo of (G) Jason Crowell & (F) Askia Davis, but helping them in the front court is athletic (F) Isiaih Reed, who might rival Davis for dunks this season.
||The Goat Herders are making the jump from 1st Div, but this isn't the same team. MVP (G) Morgan Blakely is back, but with him a number of new faces that have the potential for big games, notably (F) Seamus McKiernan who already has, and (G) Milan Prodanovic, Iona's 2nd All-Time 3-pt shooter.
||They don't always have a lot of flashy numbers on their stat sheets, but the Seamen always compete. Versatile (F) Chris Tavantzis returns with new adds that have seemed to fit in well so far. (C) Ace Pidoriano will man the middle, but overall size will again be their Achilles heel.
||Team AXA may be new to FBNYC, but they've been around for a long time. This is a veteran team that knows how to grind out wins. (G) Sam Deadwyler is as crafty as they come on offense (and defense).
||Renegades have lost some key pieces, but their floor leader is back in (G) Ian Yu. He will keep them competitive. Additions (F) Nefty Martinez, and (C) Matt Collazo have looked solid so far, but Yu has some work to do.
||Also making the jump from 1st Div are the Top Stars. What constituted a big front-court in D-I is suddenly average at best. That could hurt, but (G) Max Masucci has already shown he can make the jump with a huge Week 1. TOP may also have another player with significant pedigree up their sleeves.
||Last season the Monstars looked like a team on the verge, but (F) Kaylen Gregory wasn't quite the same after coming back from injury. (F) Brett Marfurt was a big time scorer, but he hasn't shown up yet. Even if Gregory is healthy, MON may need another contributor on offense.
||It wasn't a pretty start for the Free Agents, and these kind of teams can be a crap shoot sometimes. But it's a long season, and hopefully they can come together as a team, and compete night in, night out.

|2K14 SUM Week 2 Player Awards||FBNYC, 7.14.14|
| UNDRCRWN™ PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Zack Simmons (BBR) | 4th Season
|Pos: G, Ht: 6-2, Ht: 190 lbs
After teammate (F) Will Johnson's monster of a spring, it felt as if the former MVP Simmons had disappeared. He hadn't, his #s were as strong as ever. And, now he's back in the PotW box.
R-Up: Brandon Hines (MBX) 34 pts, 5 reb, 6 stl
|The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
S. McKiernan (GOA) 16 reb, 2 blk
The rookie big man dominated the paint against a smaller SEA team. He got pretty much anything he wanted in a big opening night win.
R-Up: Zack Simmons (BBR) 11 reb, 2 stl, 1 blk
|Wat Misaka Defensive Player of the Week
Sam Deadwyler (AXA) 8 reb, 7 stl
The veteran guard is one of the best we've seen at using his deceptive quickness and length to bait you into bad looks. Don't sleep on him ever.
Runner-Up: Brandon Hines (MBX) 5 reb, 6 stl
|The High-5 Club
Matt Collazo (REN) 17-6-4-3-2
Jason Crowell (MBX) 21-9-6-1-2

Ian Yu (REN) 11-5-5-2-1
|Spot Dessert Bar™ Rookie of the Week
S. McKiernan (GOA) 25 pts, 16 reb
There are a lot of new faces that look like they'll put up some big numbers this season, but McKiernan takes the double-up prize in Week 2.
R-Up: Nefty Martinez (REN) 23 pts, 7 reb, 5 ast
|The "John Starks" Award
Y. Joseph (FAS) | 4-19 FGs (.211)
FAS started off with a tough match up to open the season. They struggled all over, but someone had to take the shots. Joseph tried his best.
Dishonorable Mention: B. Ansari (FAS) 2-12 FGs
|The "Chris Dudley" Award
S. Deadwyler (AXA) | 5-14 FTs (.357)
They got the win, so there's that, but Deadwyler's gone 8-21 in the last 2 weeks from the line. The team is a collective 16-40. Ugly stuff.
Dishonorable Mention: S. McKiernan (GOA) 6-12 FTs
