Ju Ju Mansour (PLZ) G | 6-0 | 190 lbs Week 3 Stats PPG: 24.0 APG: 8.0 SPG: 3.0
Mansour certainly knows how to introduce himself. The Peoplez Choice guard has a lot of swag and plenty of game to back it up. Mansour set the tone for his team, playing their first game with a full roster, they will not back down from anyone.
Talbot often made it look easy as he seemed to walk into the lane for 16 pts on a whopping 6-6 FGs. The only thing was missing was his FTs. Other than that, MON had little answer for his ability to get to the rim and create for teammates.
Runner-Up: Rahmel Miller (PIF) 15 pts, 4 reb, 2 stl
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
Anthony Plunkett (MON) 12 pts, 8 reb
Plunkett took over in the 4th qtr as the MonStars staged an unlikely comeback that just fell short. He was a man possessed.
Runner-Up: Mike Nelson (MON) 5 reb, 1 stl, 1 blk
Defensive Player of the Week
Kareem Liebert (TUR) 4 reb, 4 blks Liebert sent shots back with such a sneer of disdain it was as if he was questioning whether the other team even bothered to shoot.
Runner-Up: Rahmel Miller (PIF) 4 reb, 2 stl, 2 blk
The High-5 Club Rahmel Miller (PIF) 15-4-2-2-2 Mike Nelson (MON) 9-5-1-1-1 Steven Rivera (PLZ) 2-2-2-1-1 Will Smallwood (PIF) 10-4-1-1-2
Discorama Rookie of the Week John Quintana (PLZ) 20 pts, 6 3FGs
Mansour's backcourt mate Quintana made quite a splash himself, hitting his first five 3FGs without touching the rim. He was lights out.
Runner-Up: Mike Merritt (TUR) 8 pts, 6 reb, 1 blk
The "John Starks" Award BJ Grant (MON) | 3-13 FGs (.231)
Grant started off hot but then fell off as the game worn on. Not that he wasn't close, those were some of the prettiest misses we've ever seen.
Dishonorable Mention: J. Velazquez (MON) 4-15 FGs
The "Chris Dudley" Award Troy Talbot (TUR) | 3-9 FTs (.333)
Talbot did pretty much everything well in his debut except shoot FTs. If he hits all 9, he cracks the 20-pt mark. Turtles won anyway.
Dishonorable Mention: K. Liebert (TUR) 0-4 FTs
2K11 SPR Top 10 Plays of the Week (May 16-22)
The last of our backlogged 2K11 SPR videos. It's summer time and the living is easy from here on out. A Robby Huang joint.
Ga. James (GOD) G | 5-11 | 185 lbs Week 1 Stats PPG: 32.0 RPG: 7.0 SPG: 4.0
Under the oppressive reign of Fury coach Ren Hsieh, James never got to let his freak flag fly. No more, under the "steal the ball and throw it to Garrett" regime of GOD captain (C) Len Kamdang, James will lead the league in scoring, bet on it.
Runner-Up: S. Rivera (PLC) 13 pts, 19 reb, 5 ast
Joe Kim (NYF) G | 5-11 | 185 lbs Week 1 Stats PPG: 21.0 APG: 5.0 SPG: 4.0
Kim returns to the Fury and with it he brings his versatile game. Kim was virtually unguardable against BLB as they struggled to find a suitable match-up and the Fury made sure Kim was in position to take advantage. He leads NYF to their first win.
