Week 6 Power Rankings



1. () Big Poppa PUMPIN 5-0: Another week, another challenge, another win. Mantains his #1 spot for the 2nd week in a row. Has gone through some tough opponents recently but just has kept on winning, though did have a close call against the defending champion. Will face another challenge this week hopefully to keep his undefeated season continuing.

2. () D.R.A.K.E. 5-0: Another team that maintains its undefeated season. Hasn't really had any trouble this season either, as he claims to have never trailed all season long. But this week he really showed what a difference a healthy Kevin Durant can make, his team looked even more unstoppable beating an opponent that played quite well.

3. () Iamgine 2-2: Ok he is no longer the team to beat. Nonetheless, still one of the strongest teams this year. His only losses came against the 2 undefeated teams. This week he lost in a very close battle to the #1 team by just 1 three. He finally gets an easier team, as he looks to get back on track after losing 2 weeks in a row. Still the defending champion still a lot of respect.

4. (+2) Mulan 3-2: Ended his 2 game slide with a big dominant 7-2 win. It wasn't easy, trailed 2-7 coming into the weekend, but turned his fortunte completely around. So far 3-2, with his only 2 losses to the Top 2 teams. Honestly, not a bad season so far. He still has Anthony Davis and as long as he can stay healthy this team is a force.

5. (+4) GUWOP 3-2: This team goes back and forth with big wins and big losses. Has followed a W-L pattern so far this season. This week was his Win week, and his team never looked any better this season everything just seemed to click together. However, next week is his "Loss" week, luckily he faces the worst team in the league so he maybe able to avoid it.

6. (-2) Dream Team 3-2: Tough loss this week, blew a big lead on the weekend. Celebrated being 4-1 too early. Had a Sadurday. Was upset. But has made big changes and pledges to start winning reguarly now.

7. (-2) Triple D 2-3: Lost soundly 3-6. And I would say he is lucky that was the final score. Was down 0-9 at 1 point. Still is one of the most talented teams in the league, but this was a big letdown week. Sitting at #7 right now, still uncertain if he will start winning and prove himself as a upper half team or losing and a lower half team.

8. () Keyser Söze Reborn 1-3: Honestly, has faced really good teams and fought hard, but come up short. But still has played well. Unfortunately, faces the #1 team this week. Truly big tests for his team right now, on the bright side he is healthy, he just needs 1 of these big wins to really prove himself.

9. (+1) Young Thugs2-2: Back to back wins for this team. Beat up a team that plays his style. Honestly a BIG win for this team giving him the sign at least whatever he's doing he's doing a good job at it. Has made many trades to improve his team. Faces a middle #7 team this week who plays a different style to really see where he stacks up.

10. (+2) G-train 2-3: Time for this team to unleash itself? Has LeBron James with the 3 monsters of the NBA Whiteside/DeAndre/Drummond. Yes very very scary. Got a solid 6-3 win this week against a team ranked higher than him, and now his new team faces the ultimate test this week vs. #2 DRAKE.

11. (-4) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 2-3: Honestly, got some sort of reality check this week. Got beat at his own game. The problem really lies in his 'projects'. MCW, Lawsn, Parsons, Chandler etc. are really wearing his team down right now. May need to get rid of some of this dead weight if he wants to start winning again.

12. (-1) Definitely Wont Win 2-3: Back to back losses and questionable trades has sent his season spiraling down again. Having Jonas watch from the sidelines also really hurts. Not sure if this team can turn around his season again like he did earlier, goes against a very beatable team this week, chance to save his season.

13. () Overdosed Redux 1-3: Got his 1st win of the season, but it didn't say much considering his opponent. Still has made many trades to improve his team, but question is can he defeat a real opponent? This question may be answered this week. Really needs Cousins on the court for this.

14. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 0-5: Wost team period.







Matchup of the Week

3 Iamgine 2-2 vs. 6 Dream Team 3-2


Storyline: The actual champion from the past year vs. the self-proclaimed champion this year. This is the 3rd week in a row Iamgine has been in the matchup of the week, his record is 0-2. He faces perhaps is easiest opponent in the past 3 weeks, but against a team that is going through major changes. A team that is angry. A team that knows it needs to win this week or stop talking.

Looks like you aren't learning from your mistakes, time for you to take some more losses and pray that I slip up. It's not going to happen...

Week 7 Power Rankings




1. () Big Poppa PUMPIN 6-0: 6-0. That is officially the record for consecutive wins to start a season in premier league history. The previous record was 5. And he also has the largest margin of victory in the league. Enough reason to be #1? Think so.

2. () D.R.A.K.E. 6-0: Now has started the season with 6 straight wins and STILL has not trailed once the entire year. Wow that's impressive. As I've always said, is like a 1b. Intrestingly 6-0 also is the record for most wins to start a season, tying him with another team in this same season. Will be interesting to see which team stays unbeaten the longest to keep the record.

3. () Iamgine 3-2: Defending champion gets back on track after losing back to back weeks against the top 2 teams. I think this week was important for him to prove he is still one of the best teams in the league as he beat a respectable opponent. Schedule will finally get easier as he faces one of the worst teams this week.

4. () Mulan 4-2: Another team whose claim is I've only lost to the clear cut top 2 teams. Hey 4-0 vs. the rest of the league gives him a strong case to be up here already. His season will rest on Anthony Davis's health, weeks Davis has been healthy he has won. He didn't face anyone good this week and barely got by, next week will be bigger test.

5. () GUWOP 4-2: Finally ended his W-L pattern that has stayed with him all season. Granted it came against a pretty poor opponent, but this is a great sign for one of the more talented teams in the league. He faces an actual test this week against the #4 Mulan team lead by Anthony Davis. A win here could finally prove his team as a legit playoff team.

6. (+3) Young Thugs 3-2: Make that 3 wins in a row. That makes him the 3rd hottest team in the league besides the 2 undefeated teams. This win was maybe his most impressive out of the 3 wins. He really has made a lot of trades and really changed his team around. Best part is he has a great shot at making it 4 in a row, faces the clear-cut worst team this week.

7. (-1) Dream Team 2 3-3: Made moves to improve his team, but injuries got the best of him this week. Looking a little healthier for the next week, almost in a must win situation if he wants to still claim his team as one of the best.

8. (-1) Triple D 2-4: Another week and another sound loss. Has had 2 tough losses the last 2 weeks where his team was just outplayed. The positive part is the teams he lost to were the #5 and #6 teams, but still there is growing conern here. He has playoff talent, but team built may still not be quite right.

9. (+2) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 3-3: Back to .500! Has actually played pretty well recently, won the last 3 out of 4 weeks. But 2 of those 3 opponetns are from the bottom 3...but the positive part is some of his dead bodies are starting to come alive. If they really can do that, this team maybe dangerous. This week is a big test to see how good his team really is against #8 Triple D.

10. (-2) Keyser Söze Reborn 1-4: Honestly, this team is one of the most talented in the league, but injuries really are starting to take a toll on his early season results. Really needs Kyrie to come back as soon as possible, in the meantime just is trying to hold on and compete on what has been a very tough schedule to start out the season. Things will get a little easier thsi week, as he still searches for his 2nd win.

11. (-1) G-train 2-4: Just lost his 4th time in 5 weeks. There really is growing concern if this team build will be successful. On the bright side, he is keeping it close vs. some of the best teams. Unfortunately, schedule will remain tough as he faces another tough team vs. #1 PLR. But a win here could make a huge statement to the rest of the league.

12. (+1) Overdosed Redux 1-4: Another week another loss. Score was much closer than the week actually was. Was trailing all week practically. On the bright side, has made many moves that may turn his team around. Still will need to prove it by actually getting a win. Won't be easy next week against the defending champ.

13. (-1) Definitely Wont Win 2-4: 3rd loss in a row. Season is starting to fall apart. Is it panic time? Yes I think so. Also forgot to edit his lineup today, inactivity perfect recipe for falling apart. Worst part is, he faces #1 and #2 in the next 3 weeks. It is going to be a tough road ahead for this team. Recent moves have been questionable.

14. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 0-6: Wost team period.







Matchup of the Week

4 Mulan 4-2 vs. 5 GUWOP 4-2


Storyline: Two teams both 4-2. They are part of the 2nd tier after the Top 2 teams. Both look like valid playoff teams right now, though very early, this is a type of 1st round playoff battle you should expect to see. Both teams also are trying to prove which one is more of a playoff lock and which one will have to fight, after all winner will be a very impressive 5-2. AD (3 games) will need as much support as he can get as Griffin/Leonard each have 4 games.

Week 8 Power Rankings



1. (+1) D.R.A.K.E. 7-0: What's there to say, hasn't trailed for 50+ days (record). Has started the season off with 7 straight wins (record). I mean, without a doubt deserving of #1 at this point. But he does face his biggest test of the year next week...

2. (-1) Big Poppa PUMPIN 6-1: Finally lost his 1st week of the season. It was a major upset against the previous #11 ranked team, but what he had to face this week made it really tough for him to win. Ended with a close 5-4 loss. But has knocked him from the top spot....but he has a shot to get it back next week.

3. () Iamgine 4-2: Back to the dominating days for this team. Only 2 losses has been against the top 2 teams, but otherwise has been rock solid this season as usual. A playoff apperance is almost guaranteed for this team, but question still remains is he good enoguh to win it all? The top 2 teams seem a step ahead of him right now.

4. (+1) GUWOP 5-2: Well things are looking great for this team. Has won 3 in a row, and this was his biggest challenge of the 3 weeks as he was in the matchup of the week, and he won pretty comfortably. But no time to rest, next week he faces an even tougher challenge #3 defending champion iamgine.

5. (-1) Mulan 4-3: Honestly struggled most of the week as he was throughly outplayed in this one ending his win streak. Still, his record is 4-0 vs. teams below him but 0-3 against teams ahead of him. Has made a huge change acquiring LeBron James, not sure how long he will last but the AD & LBJ duo is easily the best in the league.

6. () Young Thugs 4-2: He is the 2nd hottest team in the league with his 4th straight win. This one however it was not pretty, as he barely squeaked by the worst team in the league. He made a lot of nice manager moves to get past him, so good job there. But an effort might like that might not be enough against a better team, which he will facet his week.

7. () Dream Team 2 4-3: Finally got back to the winning track. Desparetly needed a win here and got his big time win. Nonetheless, it was against a pretty weak team. Has 1 more week before he faces the 2 top dogs of the league, says he is ready for them.

8. (+1) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 4-3: This team continues to rack up wins. Gets his 4th win in 5 weeks now, very very impressive. This week was as close as ice as he barely got by with a win sunday evening. He has a very good chance to win 3 in a row and make it 5/6 as he faces worst team in the league next week.

9. (+2) G-train 3-4: What an upset. So far the upset of the year beating the undefeated #1 team. The way he played, if he plays like that NO ONE could beat him. But the issue is can he play like this consistently? Time will tell as we get to see him again this week.

10. (-2) Triple D 2-5: Make that 3 losses in a row. Its been a tough stretch, this week could've gone either way, but didn't go his way. But the slump is real. On the bright side, faces the 2 worst teams the next 2 weeks, perfect time to start and turn things around.

11. (-1) Keyser Söze Reborn 1-5: The losing just continues. Still had too many players miss games due to injury. On the bright side, Kyrie is getting close and closer to return and is as healthy as he's been in a while. When Kyrie returns, expect this team to go on a run.

12. () Overdosed Redux 1-5: Honestly faced a very tough team this week. 'Guaransheeded' a win this week, but just did not happen. Instead got crushed, again. His team still looks better than it did 2 weeks ago, but desperately needs a win now. Facing another struggling opponetn next week.

13. () Definitely Wont Win 2-5: Make that 4 losses in a row. This week lost 8-1, 1st team thsi season who went through that. Honestly, this team may need a big makeover. He is trying that at this moment. But we'll see how that goes.

14. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 0-7: Almost won?





Matchup of the Week

1 DRAKE 7-0 vs. 2 Big Poppa PUMPIN 6-1


Storyline: Matchup of the year. There are few matchups as heavily anticipated as this one, ever. Many know its been coming for weeks. Finally here. It's the top 2 teams by far face off with one another this week in an ultimate showdown. The result of this match has lots of implications, who will be #1 in standings, who will be able to talk shit rest of the season, etc. Its 49 players vs. 49 players. No excuses. May the best team win.

You're 4 weeks late, but well done coming to terms with reality, YOU CAN DELAY, YOU CANNOT DENY, BE UNDENIABLE.

There really were many questionable picks on this roster and this team is looking very very weak. KD injury away from a bottom 2 finish. In fact, the only reason he is even ranked as high as he is, is because the manager has a strong reputation. Otherwise, aside from Lowry round 2, flopped on most his remaining picks.

Week 9 Power Rankings



1. (+1) Big Poppa PUMPIN 7-1: Proven himself as the #1 team. It was the matchup of the year, and he came on top, quite easily in fact as he lead almost the entire week and won by a solid amount. He was already a clear cut Top-2, might be a clear cut Top 1 soon.

2. (-1) D.R.A.K.E. 7-1: Never trailed in the entire season, until he faced his toughest challenge. After never trailing, he never didn't trail this week and was controlled by a team that was simply superior through the team. He has fallen quite distant from #1 after this week, but still is secure at #2.

3. () Iamgine 5-2: The champion continues to find ways to win. This week he had one of his toughest challenges of the year in a big test to prove he deserved this Top 3 spot, he proved himself. It wasn't easy, he was trailing big time in the beginning of the week, but as a champion fought back and won.

4. (+2) Young Thugs 5-2: The new hottest team in the league. Has won 5 in a row. Not many teams even in premier history have accomplished this, but he's done it now and is looking like a serious threat. The credit has to go to the manager, he has fought aggressively each week and made nice changes. Look out.

5. (+2) Dream Team 2 5-3: Back to back wins now. This one was really impressive, he promised to lead all week, and did just that. He even rested so many players and still the win was not in question. Gets his biggest challenge of the year next year. He says he is ready and won't even need a move.

6. (-2) GUWOP 5-3: Had some tough competition this week, but just couldn't do it. He had a great start and looking like a Top 3 team, but in the end couldn't hold the lead against the champion. Still a solid playoff team, has looked like this all year.

7. (+1) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 5-3: This week really didn't say much about him, he was facing the worst team and won. Finally gets an interesting opponent next week to finally show how good/bad he is. Finally made some moves after a while, will be interesting to see if he got better or worse.

8. (-3) Mulan 4-4: There were concerns that this new trade hurt rather than helped his team, and those concerns might be more legit. I mean, he fought to the end against a great team, but that's 2 losses in a row. Almost in a must-win this week if he still wants to prove himself as a legit playoff contender.

9. (+1) Triple D 3-5: Finally ended his 3 game losing streak. But shouldn't get very happy as his team beat one of the worst teams in the league. Will have another week where he faces another awful team, good chance to get some wins on the board.

10. (+1) Keyser Söze Reborn 2-5: Don't look now, but he's finally healthy. He didn't beat anyone good, but he won quite convincingly. Kyrie Irving is back, and he officially has no injured players on his roster. Don't take this team lightly based on his record.

11. (-2) G-train 3-5: Honestly, was an embarrassing loss. This week really showed the flaws in his team. He may have a lot of talent, but its a total misfit and is built to lose every week unless he gets lucky. Needs to change it up or will just lose & lose.

12. () Overdosed Redux 1-7: Team is just terrible. It's really just a flawed strategy built team. He may have talent, but its just not going to work the way he's built it. Honestly, 1 or 2 more weeks of playing like this and his season is over.

13. () Definitely Wont Win 2-6: 5 straight losses. He used to have a good team. But at this point is just a doormat everyone takes turns stepping on. Faces the top team in the league this week.

14. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 0-8: No comments.




Matchup of the Week

2 DRAKE 7-1 vs. 5 Dream Team 5-3


Storyline: A matchup that has been talked about before the season even started. There is bad blood, hatred, trash talking, and a need to win this week. Both managers know loser is going to have to hear a lot of shhit. And both managere are extremely confident they will win. DRAKE is coming off his 1st loss of the year and needs to bounce back, while Dream Team 2 is finally showing how strong his team really is and this week will be the ultimate proof.

Week 10 Power Rankings



1. () Big Poppa PUMPIN 8-1: And the top team keeps on rolling. The scoreboard didn't show the matchup as close as it really was. Even though he won just 5-4, it was an easy 5-4 win. Nonethless, he faced one of the worst teams this week and still only 5-4? Faces a much stiffer test next week.

2. (+2) Young Thugs 6-2: Make that 6 wins in a row. Not many teams in premier league history have won this many games in a row. What a turnaround really, after the 0-2 start, has won 6 in a row, and this 8-1 win against a similar team build was his most impressive win of the year for this team. He has done it through impressive strategy and outstanding managing. Many still doubt his talent, but for now, he deserves this top spot.

3. (+2) Dream Team 2 6-3: Make that 3 in a row for this team. Really is coming together with an extroadinary amount of talent on this roster. Speaks of being unbeatable at this point. He knocked off the #2 team last week, this week gets a shot at the #1 team in the league.

4. (-2) D.R.A.K.E. 7-2: He was #1 for a week. Since then has lost 2 in a row. His combined record against the teams above him is 0-2. Seems like 4th is the best place he could be after losing back to back weeks. Good news is his schedule will finally get easier as he faces one of the worst teams next week.

5. (+1) GUWOP 6-3: Continues his winning ways against an underrated Meek's squad last week. Has now won 4 out of his last 5 matchups. However, things may get ugly soon, just lost Griffin for at least 2 weeks. He was his 2nd best player. On the bring side, has a very winnable matchup next week.

6. (-3) Iamgine 5-3: Honestly, last week was just embarrassing. Losing 8-1 with a team running his style. I hate to say it, the champion doesn't seem to have it anymore. No excuses on last week. Get a much easier opponent however next week in a must needed bounceback week.

7. (+1) I SERVE THE BASE 5-4: Yes this team has hope. With the season crumbling, he made some more major moves in an attempt to save his season, and so far it seems like it may have worked. Bounced back in a big way this week with a huge win. Nonetheless, still has a lot to prove with his new team. But hey as long as you have Anthony Davis, you should be good.

8. (+1) Triple D 4-5: Not really much to say here again, got his 2nd win in a row but last week it was against the 2nd worst team, this week against the worst team. Really still hasn't proven he is a winning club again yet, next week finally gets a legit opponent to prove something.

9. (+1) Keyser Söze Reborn 2-6: Yes he lost but I'm moving him up. He gave one hell of a battle to a Top 5 team. His squad is healthy again, and as I've said all year, underrated teams in terms of talent. He still only has 2 wins and needs to beat someone good to prove he is a playoff contender, gets a shot next week against the #2 ranked team.

10. (-3) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 5-4: Got totally bullied this week. That was one of the big reasons to drop 3 spots. The other reason was the loss of Bledsoe. After Paul George, there is a pretty big drop in his roster. Its kind of concerning. How bad he really is still unclear, but not going to get a chance to prove much as he goes agaisnt the defending champion next week.

11. (+1) Overdosed Redux 2-7: Snapped a 3 game losing streak with a win. His new team is slowly starting to look better, however, still his only 2 wins have come against the #12 and #14 ranked team. Not pretty. His upcoming scheudle is not pretty either, faces the #4, #1, and #3 ranked teams. Hey maybe a shot to actually beat someone good for once?

12. (-1) G-train 3-6: 3rd loss in 4 weeks. Though he is slowly starting to make changes, his team still isn't quite there where it needs to be to start winning. He has had some clutch FA pickups recently however. Overall, team still has a lot of talent, I feel like eventually he will make it work.

13. () Definitely Wont Win 2-7: 6 straight losses. The bright side, the final score was close this week?

14. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 0-9: No comments. He sucks.




Matchup of the Week

1 Big Poppa PUMPIN 8-1 vs. 3 Dream Team 6-3


Storyline: After taking out #2 DRAKE, Dream Team and has super power roster moves onto the #1 team in the league. Dream Team manager has already said he will "humiliate" PLR's team this week. He has the squad to maybe back that claim, they just beat #2 team, are on a 3 game win streak, and now are healthier than ever. But on the opposite side the #1 team in the league is 8-1. Only 1 team has beaten it and that was a fluke 4-5 loss. This should be good.

Week 11 Power Rankings



1. (+2) Dream Team 3 7-3: And we have a new #1 team. Well deserved. The 3rd, better than ever, version of Dream Team. This team has won 4 straight games including knocking off the previous #2 and #1 teams to get this top spot. With the schedule now becoming easier, may stay at the top for a while.

2. (-1) Big Poppa PUMPIN 8-2: Gets his 2nd loss of the season. Was in control of the matchup in the 1st half, but fell apart in the 2nd half of the matchup. By Sunday, just didn't have enough to win. That makes 2-2 in the past 4 weeks after starting 6-0. The worst part is the injuries he suffered this week. Needs to prove he is still a top contender again.

3. (-1) Young Thugs 6-3: Finally his 6 game win streak snapped. He has a good excuse he was in Dubai and couldn't manage this one properly. He could be out for another week. This is 1 team that the manager really made a big impact in getting wins. Hopefully he can win without all of that as he has a beatable opponent next week.

4. () D.R.A.K.E. 7-2: The good news is he ended his losing streak. The bad news is he ended with a tie against the #11 ranked team. This team has been hampered by injuries as of late really slowing him down from what he was earlier in the season. Hasn't found a way to win in 3 weeks now. Gets a respectable opponent next week as he should be healthier coming into that matchup, almost a must win at this point to prove he still belongs at the top.

5. (+1) Iamgine 6-3: Bounced back from his last week embarassing loss with a close win vs. #10 team. It wasn't pretty, but a win is a win and he should be glad he got it. He still hasn't quite looked like a champion yet but has another mid tier opponent to prove he is above all of them next week.

6. (-1) GUWOP 6-4: 1st week without Griffin wasn't so good. Lost to a team that really went through a lot of changes and shouldn't have been that good. He also got Avery injured this week too which could spill over to next week too. Not looking so healthy right now as he faces another tough opponent.

7. (+1) Triple D 5-5: Make that 3 in a row and this time against a respectable opponent for once. He actually had a very strong week, his best showing of the season. Maybe all these trades aren't so bad after all, his schedule will continue to get tougher as he faces the defending champion next.

8. (+1) Keyser Söze Reborn 3-6: After giving a great battle to a top 5 team last week, he comes and beats the #2 team this week. Granted the #2 team had managerial issues, but this was still an impressive win. Everyone has talked about how scary this team can be when healthy and I think we starting to see it. The Whiteside trade is interesting for him.

9. (-2) I SERVE THE BASE 5-5: Lost a tough battle against a tough team. Well the team wasn't that tough, but played really really well making winning almost impossible for him. On the bright side, faces the 2 worst teams the next 2 weeks. Time to turn things around and start winning again.

10. (+1) Overdosed Redux 2-7: Didn't quite win this week but should have. He was winning almost all week and just choked at the end. The positive here is he still tied a top 5 team. Even a bigger positive is the changes he has made to his team have really made his team better. Now its time to actually get some wins and make up ground. Unfortunately faces the #2 and #1 teams the next 2 weeks.

11. (+1) G-train 4-6: Has completely turned his team around and is starting to actually be a team that competes every week. Beat a pretty good team, though that team did have some injury issues. Still really hasn't had a full week test with his new team, gets a tough on this week vs. #3 team in league.

12. (-2) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 5-5: I'll be honest, this team doesn't have much hope. He may still be 5-5, but without Bledsoe I don't see this team going anywhere. He is like the Suns of the league. Paul George is his only strong talent, after that, not a very deep roster either. Could become a doormat.

13. (+1) SO SWAG @navidsworld 1-9: Yes he's not last anymore. Beat #13 to earn his spot at #13. Do I expect him to move higher? No.

14. (-1) Definitely Wont Win 2-8: 7 straight losses. Lost to Navid last week. Enough said.





Matchup of the Week

4 D.R.A.K.E 7-2 vs. 6 GUWOP 6-4


Storyline: A big matchup between 2 teams who aren't top 3, but legit playoff teams. It's a matchup that they need to win if they want to be considered a real contender. DRAKE has gone 0-2 the past 3 weeks with not much signs of life almost trailing the entire time, is he finished or can he return to stardom? GOWUP is the one really hurting right now with injuries, are they too much for him or can he continue being a playoff team with the injuries? These questions will be answered this week.

Week 12 Power Rankings


1. () Dream Team 3 8-3: The new #1, defends his crown. Though it was a pretty lousy performance trailing most of the week, this team once again took another gear in the weekend and had the game well in control by Sunday. It's yet another 5-4 win, missed opportunities once again to win bigger. Promises to get a bigger win this week.

2. (+1) D.R.A.K.E. 9-2: This team has definately broken out of their slump. Only moving this team up 1 spot from last week as they were actually 3rd not 4th due to yahoo correction. But when you go up and win 8-1 without one of your top players Derrick Favors? Yes you have to be excited. Is #1 in standings and W-L record overall, definately a strong championship contender.

3. (+1) Young Thugs 7-3: After having his 6 game win streak snapped, pulled a very close win over G-Train. He was back in town for this one and it really paid off as his managing has been spectacular this year. Still the only thing that people talk about in relation to his hot 7-1 run is, has he beat any of the elite teams? Well fear no more he faces the #2, #4, and #1 ranked teams next 3 weeks to see how he stacks up.

4. (-2) Big Poppa PUMPIN 8-3: Things are going downhill very fast for this team. After being at the top of the league 2 weeks ago, has lost back to back weeks. Overall is 2-3 in the past 5 weeks. The opponetns have been tough, but really needs to get on the right track again. Faces another cold team for a perfect chance to get back in it.

5. () Iamgine 7-3: Here is a team getting back on track. Really in the softer stretch of his schedule with opportunities to rack up the wins as easy as possible. He is barely winning 5-4, but has been in well control of his matchups recently. The defending champion is still a strong team and you should definately expect to see them in the playoffs.

6. (+2) Keyser Söze Reborn 4-6: Honestly, it's time to give respect where it's due, this team has played outstanding recently. He came with a slow start to the season, but since he has gotten healthy has knocked off 2 tough opponents the past 2 weeks. He is a team no one wants to face right now. Westbrook and now Whiteside, good luck league.

7. (+3) Overdosed Redux 3-7: 3-8 is still a very ugly number, but this team has done a complete turnaround. Right now the scariest team in the league. It has a build that will give almost anyone matchup problems. Last week he easily dominated the #2 team in the league. This week he gets a shot at the #1 team. Should be a great battle.

8. (-1) Triple D 5-6: He lost to a respectable opponent, but the matchup was over pretty quickly. One of those matchups the score didn't really tell how close it really was. Has done some questionable trades recently, so it's very questionable that his team is still a legit playoff team. Gets the ultimate test this week against #6 team.

9. (-3) GUWOP 6-5: Falls to 0-2 without Griffin. Honestly has gone from a playoff team, to a joke squad. He was absoluately dominated this week. And his schedule will just get tougher the next 2 weeks as well facing the #4 and #1 team. Really needs Griffin to return...

10. (+1) G-train 4-7: Yeah he lost but props to a neck to neck battle with the #3 team in the league. Here is another team who has really turned his team around as of late, still no telling how good he really is. But 1st looks say he's pretty solid. Will need to find some consistency to actually prove something however.

11. (+1) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 5-6: Yes he lost, but we got a 1st look at how good his team could be post-KCP trade. Pretty damn good. He almost beat out one of the hottest teams in the league. These moves sure seem to be helping. Looks to actually get the job done next week against the team ranked 1 spot ahead.

12. (-3) I SERVE THE BASE 5-6: You lost 6 to 3 vs. a 1-9 team? Ouch. AD has been unreliable and it costs him again.

13. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 2-9: Never thought I would say this but, Navid actually might be a respectable opponent. He has 2 wins in a row. I say 1 more week to prove this is not a fluke and he is for real, gets a much tougher test this week.

14. () Definitely Wont Win 2-9: 8 straight losses. But I have a feeling that losing streak should end soon, Damian Lillard is back.







Matchup of the Week

2 D.R.A.K.E 9-2 vs. 3 Young Thugs 7-3


Storyline: A legit showdown, #2 vs. #3. DRAKE has once again found his winning ways looking absolutely great the past 2 weeks. He hasn't become 100% healthy, but could be this week. There is also doubters that say, even as talented as DRAKE is, he can't beat other elite teams. Gets a chance to prove those doubters wrong. He goes up against a team that has only done 1 thing in the past 2 months, win. With a combined record of 7-1 in the past 8 weeks, this team is more than legit. Should be a tough matchup for both teams.

Week 13 Power Rankings


1. (+2) YoungThugs *RIPteam* 8-3: It's time to give some credit where it's due, he might not have the most talent, but this goes to show what intense managing can do. It can win you the last 7 out of 8 matches. In fact, the only match he lost was when he couldn't intensely manage as he was out of country. Definately a team to be reckoned with and not underestimated when the manager is around.

2. (-1) Dream Team 3 8-4: Just 2 weeks at staying at #1, Dream Team has fallen down. He had one 5 straight before this close 5-4 loss against a red hot team. The good news is he has made some big moves acquiring Westbrook and pledges that this will make his team unbeatable.

3. (-1) D.R.A.K.E. 9-3: Gets upset by a pretty strong team in his latest loss. He has now lost 3 out of his last 5 weeks. Not a nice trend. All 3 of these opponents are ranked in the Top 4. Might be time to look at this a team as a team that can feast on the little ones but can't beat the top dogs.

4. () Big Poppa PUMPIN 9-3: Ended a 2 game slump with a much needed win. With that said, he beat the coldest team in the league. Will need to do more to prove he is a top 3 team still. Has made many changes to his roster, mostly positive, and has a chance to prove once again he belongs in the top 3 with a big matchup this week.

5. () Iamgine 8-3: Honestly the defending champion continues to keep rolling. That's his 5th win in 6 weeks. I mean, he's still a major threat. He stayed good all year last year, and took home the championship in the playoffs. Still one of the best and most dangerous teams. Relatively easy schedule moving forward.

6. () Keyser Söze Reborn 5-6: Make that 3 in a row. Really making up ground after early season struggles. He still hasn't had the overall success the Top 5 teams have had, but he's slowly getting there. Made some big moves this week, needs to prove that his team is still at the top without Westbrook. Won't be able to prove it next week vs. Navid.

7. () Overdosed Redux 4-7: Really wish I could move this team higher, but 4-8 is still a very ugly record. But right now he can't be playing better, he has knocked off the #1 and #2 teams in the past 2 weeks (now #2 and #4). What more can you ask? Will just need to keep winning consistently like all the teams above him have all year. Schedule will get easier upcoming weeks.

8. (+3) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 6-6: Honestly, having all those moves may not be a bad idea. Starting to frustrate opponents to losing. Overall this year has won as much as he has lost, doesn't have the talent to win so much, but is taking a page off the #1 ranked team and doing some intense managing to victories. Could be enough for playoffs.

9. (+3) I SERVE THE BASE 6-6: Here's a team who has made some sneaky moves to improve himself. He really needed a dominating win last week to stay alive here. And he got it. But just how good is this team with AD healthy and a few other pieces now? Next week's challenge against a Top 5 team will tell.

10. (-2) Triple D 5-7: Honestly just isn't getting wins like he was before. There isn't any injury to point to, it may just be this team isn't as good as it used to be. I look back at the Brook Lopez trade as a turning point. In fact, made many trades with STAT, but progressively losing and making his team worse. Now we look after all the trades between these teams, STAT is much improved and he is much worse. It's a tragedy.

11. (-1) G-train 4-8: Just had a very tough matchup against Attila. But that's 4 losses in the past 5 weeks. If he wants to make a playoff run with his new look team, it has to be now. Gets a matchup with a team just ahead of him, must-win week to stay alive here.

12. (-3) GUWOP 6-6: From a sure-shot playoff team, this team is now the coldest team in the league. He is now 0-3 without Griffin and just can't win. Has really hurt his playoff chances. Good news is Griffin is expected back soon, potentially this week.

13. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 2-10: Still a nice turn around. His 2 game win streak snapped, but he went neck to neck against the defending champion. I'll still say no one should go facing this team and expect an easy matchup.

14. () Definitely Wont Win 2-10: Really blew up his team. And why not? That's 9 straight losses.






Matchup of the Week

1 YoungThugs *RIPteam* 8-3 vs. 4 Big Poppa PUMPIN 9-3


Storyline: Another big showdown, #1 vs. #4. YoungThugs was in the matchup of the week last week, and came thru as the underdog. This week he is the favorite and now the new #1 seed. And right away has a big test to defend it. But winning, though not easy, has become a habit of his, having won the last 7 out of 8 weeks. He faces a team, #4 BIG Poppa PUMPIN, that has been at the top most of the year, and has been retooled after 2 losses in a row. Is he a Top 3 top contender team again? This week will tell us the answer to the question.

Week 14 Power Rankings



1. (+1) Dream Team 3 9-4: Back at the top. Got back to his dominating ways with a huge 7-2 victory. He did it with so much ease it was amazing, one of the few matchups you could say was over on Monday. Never looked back. Pau Gasol and a bench makeover should boost this team to unbeatable status.

2. (+1) D.R.A.K.E. 10-3: Quickly rebounded from his last lost with a dominating 7-2 win. The score board doesn't really tell the whole story as the matchup was close than the score. Nontheless, good win still fighting without Favors, faces another mid-tier team next week.

3. (+1) Big Poppa PUMPIN 10-3: Is officially BACK. Back to back wins, is saying his team is recovered from the mini-slump and his new look has a lot to do with it. Lots of star power in the perimeter, enough of it that the slight imbalance shouldn't really hurt him.

4. (-3) YoungThugs *RIPteam* 8-4: Finally got beat. Was simply outplayed most of the week. It was his 1st week at the top, and maybe his last. Simply did not level up. Nonetheless, gets another chance to prove he still can be the best, gets another shot at the top team.

5. () Iamgine 9-3: Steady as usual with another win. Make that 7 wins in 8 weeks. I mean, can you do any better? The only comment of concern is he is 1-3 against the Top 4 ranked teams...making it hard to move him higher. But he has shown great consistency against the rest of the league. Will have a shot at the Top 3 teams again at some point this season to prove if he belongs there or still a step below.

6. () Keyser Söze Reborn 6-6: 4 straight wins and now .500. Always thought this team had the great talent to turn things around and he finally has after starting just 2-6. But when will he face someone to really test his team? His time will come soon, meanwhile should keep rolling.

7. () Overdosed Redux 5-7: Was an ugly win, but still a win. That's 3 straight wins, and besides for this week, has been full of quality opponents. His team is looking very difficult to beat in H2H, but all that might still be short for him to get to the playoffs.

8. (+2) Triple D 6-7: Welcome back to winning. Ended his 2 game slide with a much needed must win. What's next? The top 3 teams in the league.

9. () I SERVE THE BASE 6-7: I give him props for going neck to neck against a Top 5 team last week. He played it very strong and it came down to the wire. Has a very key matchup against a team that isn't quite Top 5 but looking playoff caliber, finally time to answer the question if his team is good enough or not.

10. (-2) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 6-7: Took a huge blow this week. It was a pretty epic choke Sunday, could've won, and instead lost 2-7. Still you have to respect he kept it close till Sunday vs. #2 ranked team. Will face another tough opponent this week vs. #3 PLR.

11. () GT4-9: It was close, had a shot till the end, but just couldn't do it. He loses his 3rd in a row and the 5th loss in the past 6 weeks. Not pretty. He has and continues to make many changes, but the magic forumula just isn't working yet. Good news is he faces one of the worst teams next, if he wants to maek a run, it has to start now.

12. () GUWOP 6-7: Ice-cold. That's what his team is right now. Getting blown out left & right. Griffin and Dragic may return this week, much needed return really.

13. () SO SWAG @navidsworld 2-11: Has gotten better of the past few weeks, keeping things competitive, but still sucks. Sorry.

14. () Definitely Wont Win 2-11: 10 straight losses? We should've all believed him when he said he "Definately Won't Win".








Matchup of the Week

1 Dream Team 9-4 vs. 4 YoungThugs *RIPteam* 8-4


Storyline: 2 hot teams face off this week. Last week's #1 vs. this week's #1. Dream Team has won 6 out of its last 7, has been claimed by many as the best team in the league. The starpower it has right now is unreal. Young Thugs comes in with 8-2 the past 10 weeks. That's pretty damn good. Has only lost to good teams. Also looking for revenge off the Week 1 beating where he was simply embarrassed.

Week 15 Power Rankings



1. () Dream Team 3 10-4: Reaches miletone 10th win...officially a winning season. It was a very tough test in the "Matchup of the week", trailed most the week, but like all championship teams, fought fought and Sunday took the win. Great dominating week.

2. () D.R.A.K.E. 11-3: Kept his #2 spot with another dominating win over a weak team. He is #1 in yahoo standings because of this trend all year, has a knack for blowing out bad teams. Still, the reason he still hasn't captured the top seed, is his lack of success (for whatever reason doesn't matter) against other great teams. Is a very sorry 0-3 against the Top 4 ranked teams.

3. () Big Poppa PUMPIN 10-4: Really a big upset this week as his team just was controlled throughout the whole week against a mediocre team. After a 6-0 start, the past 8 weeks has gone 4-4. Nothing special. Seems to be the case of a team peaking early in the season and now back to reality. Still 10-4 overall is pretty impressive. Needs Knight to get back to the top 2.

4. () YoungThugs *RIPteam* 8-5: Brought some fierce competition against the #1 team, leading most of the way, but just was unable to finish it off. Nonetheless, great effort. He has really proven himself a solid playoff team and last 3 weeks against the Top 3 showed he belongs right there with them. Schedule finally gets easier and will look to make a run again.

5. () Iamgine 9-4: One of the biggest upsets of the season. The defending champion loses to a team on a 10 game losing streak. It was a shocking one. Still one of the best teams in the past 9 weeks, going 7-2 in that stretch, but another loss and it might be time to hit the panic button.

6. (+1) Overdosed Redux 6-7: Another ugly win against a pretty bad team. But still a win is a win and he now has 4 wins in a row, the longest streak in the league. Schedule will get a little tougher the upcoming weeks, and still has a lot of ground to make up for playoffs.

7. (+2) I SERVE THE BASE 7-7: What an important week for him and what an important win for him. He finally had a matchup where he could really make a statement and he took full advantage. He is still suffering from some serious injury/trade mistakes, but hopes to make a KC Cheifs run here.

8. (+2) DETROIT VS EVERYBODY 7-7: Very impressive win over the #3 ranked team in the league. Has split against the #2 and #3 teams now going 1-1 as he hopes to keep the playoff hopes alive. This week however he will face his biggest test vs. #1 Dream Team 3. The bright side is after this week teh schedule will finally get easier.

9. (-3) Keyser Söze Reborn 6-7: Kind of a steep drop for a team that had won 4 in a row. But last week was embarassing. Bad 1st half of the week, never got better. His team has changed quite a bit, and the reality maybe, the change hasn't been positive. Whiteside looks like a big letdown, while no one really can replace Westbrook. Kind of needs to reprove himself, next week is the time to do so.

10. (-2) Triple D 6-8: Started his trip vs. the top 3 teams in the league with a big loss. This one was ugly from the beginning and it didn't end so well for him. His team really needs change at the top, but he just hasn't gotten the right deal. Maybe too late soon...

11. (+1) GUWOP 6-8: Not that he won but he almost did against a respectable opponent. The trend for this team will be up, he is finally getting healthy and I really like the AD trade for him. He has had some rough weeks, but might finally turn it around and start getting some wins and become a playoff team again.

12. (+1) SO SWAG @navidsworld 3-11: Get another shocking win. This one really was a shocker, trailed all week and then took home the win. Is now 3-2 in the past 5 weeks, seems competent. But another loss maybe looming as he faces one of the top teams next week.

13. (-1) GT4-10: Ouch that must have hurt. To lose like that at the very end. Make that 4 losses in a row and 6 out of the last 7. Things just aren't going so well for this team.

14. () Definitely Wont Win 3-11: Finally won! But that was after 10 straight losses. Will need to win more to show decency.







Matchup of the Week

4 YoungThugs *RIPteam* 8-5 vs. 6 Overdosed Redux 6-7


Storyline: Ah how times have changed. When these 2 teams faced in week 2, they were 2 of the worst teams in the league. Now they are 2 of the best. B4life is just getting through the toughest part of his season, and so far he's actually done well holding his own. But this will be his last test. Coming from the hottest team in the league, winners of 4 straight, and a completely different style of play. Should be interesting matchup as 2 teams who are so different yet have played at a similar level of late.
