Power Rankings: 2013 Week 9

Note from the editor: The Power Rankings Presented by Gary have really taken off! This segment has outgrown the original “Power Rankings” page. In addition, Erik, aka “E”, reviewed the Power Rankings and noticed that it would be helpful for the visual learners in the audience to have a graphic display of the Power Rankings over time. His work is fascinating. It appears below the text of this post, and you may look forward to updates.

To better accommodate the thriving Power Rankings and Erik’s latest contribution, these will now be posted on the main blog page. The old rankings have been copied, posted separately to the main page, and backdated for your reference.


Ok…..it is with much pain I must rank the players for the week of 2/25/2013-3/1/2013;
we had some participants playing only one game this week and others playing 3 games this week, so it is especially difficult to do this on the fly…..so here goes….
Numero UNO (that is number 1 to those of you who do not speak spanish);
1)Jorge…..what can I say…he did just enough today to keep his reign of consecutive numero unos going, he got his WHOLE team involved, was a spiritual leader and made his fair share of baskets…….he narrowly escaped the brilliant game of Phil on Wed., who played only average on Monday so by a slight hair, he retains his hold on this coveted spot!
2) Phil………played an excellent game on Wed…….but a relatively weak one for his normal participation on monday so it is with great fervor that I place him ever so gently here at number 2!!!!
3) Jimbo was Jimbo…….some days better ….some days not so much better….but steady as she goes……….
4) Adam…..played like the dickens this week! Great rebounding and passing and wonderful defense………a real energizer bunny that made his team so much better than usual!!!!! the whirling dervish was “in da house” and made a big splash this week!
5) Matt and Darrin tied for 5th this week……………..both played well in spurts and made excellent plays for their respective teams………hard to say who outplayed the other but they were both pretty consistant….Darrin played with less errors and Matt made more baskets and rebounded a ton!
6) Eric…….was a lightning bolt of offense on Friday and was all over the court…….other days was less impressive and fell a bit in the rankings due to turnovers and missed shots on the other games…..
7) Skooter…..played with little impact defensively and pooped out late in the game…but made some tough shots and great passes!!!!
8) Jacob…….played some tough D and had a good game, an average game and a bad game playing all week…..pretty steady player……but needs to make better shot selection at times and settle down and play the game slower and more efficiently….
9) Kracker……..played some tough D and made some nice shots on Wed……did not gun as much as in the past and learning to pass more and shoot less and this only helps his game!
10) Jr. ……played ok in spots and spotty in others….needs more improvement to move up in the rankings…….but is a good player for the most part and a nice guy.
ok…there you have it ….feel free to make any rebuttal….come strong or dont come at all!
till next week….peace/out…………G$..
