Power Rankings: 2013 Week 4

Ok….so now I have the unenviable task of ranking the players of lunchketball for yet another week, the week of 1/21/13-1/25/13 ( a shortened week for us);
Some of the regulars did not play this week as we were dealing with many different issues of business meetings, vacations, sickness and rain…..so I will do my best to rank those of us who actually participated this week!
Number one is the spot EVERYONE wants to occupy, and this week was a difficult one for me……but here goes……..I must qualify this by saying that you DONT have to win every game to be in the number one spot, but it helps….and every so often there are performances that are so inspired that even the fact that that player did not win a game in a particular time frame, he should still get ample consideration and this is that time!
1) virtual tie between Jorge and Nick ……the reason is as follows…..Nick led both of his teams to victory by exemplary shooting and defensive skills and has to be considered a top dog this week! Jorge, even though was not able to win this week, fought through very tough odds and matchup problems and led his team to comebacks that were very inspirational and earned himself the energizer bunny of the week award! Yes this is not an official award as of yet, but bears some consideration for the player, who by his efforts and determination and refusal to give in and throw in the towel, leads his team to “almost” win!!!!!!!!!! it is because of his stellar play and skills that the games he lost were as close as they were! So there you have it…..a tie for first this week with Jorge and NIck!!!!!
2) Charlie, while posting some very average shooting numbers lost both times this week but did some amazing things and kept his teams close as well
3)Jimbo…………….was pretty good for the whole week and monday shot the lights out…..he is steadily one of lunchketball’s better contributors, even though he is constantly bickering during game with commish on matters of scoring and fair play (ps…he kicks the ball a bit much)
4) Eric…..played his tail off on monday and could NOT miss……had some average games during the rest of the week but still a dominant force out there on the court
5) Micheal Lucero ….a young lad that had a very very nice game on monday and carried his team to victory with some nice shots, steals and passes!
6) Phil ………….one game…..pretty good stats……..decent ranking for this week
7) tie this week between Darren and Chris……both played in one game this week and both played very well on all aspects of the game, defense shooting and team play!!!!
8) Jacob……………..an average week for Jake………sometimes shot well and sometimes didnt….good rebounding and defense puts him here………….
9) Jr………..played pretty average and did not hurt his team as they won with his good steady play in the games he was part of
10) Kracker……….pretty good defending Phil, made some steals and did not shoot too much to hurt his ranking…….but I cant realistically put him above anyone this week…… so let the challenges begin and see what happens in the power rankings after the one of one games are in progress……next up….tues. game between Jacob and Kracker to see who is the top dog between those two!!!!!!

ps…kudos to George for an inspirational speech on his donation seeking spot on the blog…………I feel like donating just to get the autographed sleeve ! How cool is that? and doesnt he just look like someone you have to donate money to? He sold it well…..nuff said….peace/out……..Commish (with a capital “C”)
