late season run for the Playoffs.

Season, Adrian Lecesne (15.2 ppg, 7.0 rpg). GM Arvin

rpg while Mike Ratliff leads the team in scoring with
17.8 ppg on 42% shooting.

Jonathan Wynn cemented his All Star spot with a Player of
the Week honor and he is averaging 10.6 ppg on 44.9% shooting.

Rock tries to sneak in to the Playoffs.

sits in 8th place with a 1-3 record. East LA Dream Team,
defending Champions from a season ago, is in last place with a
Derrick Tamanaha has been East LA Dream Team's most
consistent scorer this season and is a heavy favorite to make
the All Star game for East LA Dream Team.
Kenny "Action" Jackson earned his All Star Game spot on Week
5 after scoring 29 points on 53% shooting. If The Rock continues
to climb the standings, a second All Star could emerge from
previously last place team, The Rock.
Chicle vs. We Tried
All Star spot and a chance to play at Staples Center is
plenty of motivation for We Tried, a team that has slim
chances of making the Playoffs.
Defending Champions, Chicle, are tied for 1st with a 4-1 record.
MVP favorite, CJ Pang, is averaging 17.2 ppg on 65.2%
shooting. They take on We Tried, a team looking for their first

for their All Star spot. GM Anthony Meltcher (14.6 ppg),
Carlos Nava (13.6 ppg) and Cody Rote (12.5 ppg)
are all averaging double-digits along with rookie C, John
Paul (10.3 ppg).
Relics vs. Try Hards
Hards are holding on to the 7th spot with a 2-3 record while
Defending Champions, 19x Champions Relics, are tied for #2 with
a 4-1 record.
Cisco Acevedo is averaging 21.0 ppg and is shooting 35.9%
from 3-point range. Acevedo headlines an All Star squad from the
Eastern Conference that features Sean Harris and
Jonathan Wynn. Yayo Yaisreal (13.6 ppg) and
Terrence Martin (14.7 ppg) are capable of putting up big
numbers as Relics attempt to try and get a second Relics player
to play at the All Star Game.
Without Ryan Carter, Try Hards upset Renegades and the
team showed they were capable of competing without their best
individual player. Ryan Carter is averaging 38.5 ppg on
64% shooting and if the rookie can find a way to utilize his
teammates, Try Hards should be a Playoff team this season.
Killmonger vs. Monstars
Killmonger hasn't lost and they put their 4 game winning streak
on the line against Monstars and Prodigy Plug. Monstars are
currently ranked #5 with a 2-3 record.
Andrew Martinez, last season's Rookie of the Season, is
averaging a team-high, 20.8 ppg on 52.5% shooting. Martinez is a
favorite to represent Monstars at the All Star Game but veteran
PF Xavier Morelos is also making a case and he is
averaging 14.6 ppg, 5.4 rpg.
Sean Harris, MVP favorite of Gold Division, is averaging
16.3 ppg, 4.5 rpg. Harris was named Player of the Week and is a
lock for an All Star spot at Staples Center on December 11.
Johnny Blaze (19.3 ppg) and Shad Earby (14.0 ppg)
could be joining Sean at the All Star gala.
Killmonger vs. Prodigy Plug
Prodigy Plug is 3-2 and is currently at 4th place in Gold
Division. They take on #1 team, Killmonger, a team that is
undefeated and playing a double-header.
Isaiah Watson (20.0 ppg, 9.4 rpg) and rookie F Marcus
(10 ppg, 11.5 rpg) could make the All Team with a Player of the
Week honor but the competition is stiff. Paul Magaway is
hoping to make it via 3-point Contest, on Week 8.
