The last of our four divisions kicks off tonight! The other 3 nights have gone fairly smoothly, everyone just wear your mask and don't fuck this up for us, k?

8 - The Slom Donkers 2.0 - The Donkers have allegedly revamped their roster in anticipation of making a run at simple respectability, but maybe they should have played Monday nights? On paper this looks like the deepest of the 3 team leagues, so good luck with that!   

7 - Walking Buckets - This ranking doesn’t really mesh with this team name, do it? Sure Maalouf can bang inside with anyone no matter their size, but if he and Tuskan are all that this team is bringing to the table it’s going to be a looooong season.

6 Seal Team 69 - At the moment I just don’t see a legit go-to scorer for when things get tough. Maybe I’ll learn more tonight, but will I apply what I’ve learned? UNLIKELY! 

5 The Young Bulls - I struggled with where to place this team. They’ve got enough swagger for an entire league and championship pedigree to back it up, but that was back in B2 4v4. This is the big boy court and they're up against big boy men. Or something. 

4 AB Alums - Gotthelf has had to remake this team in his image, it it remains to be seen how that shakes out. This is 100% respect for the franchise's history and ability to compete season in and season out. Now it AJ tarnishes that...

3 Boston - The team gets this high rating based on the presence of Warfa Abdillahi alone. That’s it, that’s all i’ve got.

2 Pylons - Lotta scoring output on this team, but can anyone other than McDermott hoist 3s? They’re going to need to be able to space the floor for Lorden to operate inside the paint. 

1 The Cat Guys - Musse, Mazz and Ryo might make up the best backcourt* across any of the 3 team divisions this season. Is that enough to overcome the obvious lack of any real size (of quality) in the front court? I actually think so! Look at me having trust in a roster that looks like this. Teams have shot fairly terribly to start the season, so if they can buck that trend I don’t see anyone taking this team down.

 

*even with Tommy kahana’s team killing ‘tude lurking on the bench

WEEK 1 LINES

6:00 PM AB Alums  vs. The Cat Guys (-11.5)
Should be an exciting game #1 ! It's early enough for Tommy to be in attendance after his early bird special dinner and still get to bed at a reasonable hour. I hope the only CAC Hall of Famer in this league is enjoying seeing his name online right now, because it's probably the only time I'll mention him this season. He'll bring it on himself after he starts 0-2 from 3 in his first 30 seconds of action before being looked off by his teammates the rest of the night (and/or season).


7:00 PM BOSTON  vs. Young Bulls (+7.5) 
GAME OF THE WEEK! I’m excited to see these teams go at it and learn a bit about them. Both rosters have had names being added and dropped for the last two weeks, so are they even correct online? Someone let me know before tip-off tonight!


8:00 PM Pylons  vs. Seal Team 69 (+14.5)
Like most of you, I watched a LOT of pandemic tv in the last year. I ran through all the good shows, all the meh shows, and now I’m on to all the bad ones. And I can’t stop. Outlander is a TERRIBLE romance novel brought to life, and yet I’m almost at the seafaring climax of season 3, ya ken? It’s so bad, no one would call it bonnie. But dinna fash, I won’t focus on it too much

9:00 PM SlomDonkers 2.0  vs. Walking Buckets (-4.5)
Well, if you’re going to start the season at the bottom of my power rankings the best you can hope for is a match-up with another lowly ranked team. Whoever gets a win here will still stay at the bottom of my very consequential rankings, but still, a win to start the season would be nice.

I think I'll have had enough time to digest my 3:30 dinner that it won't affect me too much. But how is the heat in the gym? Just curious if I should be bringing my throw blanket.....

I think the vitriol between these two is far greater than anything I would bring....besides, I'll likely be napping midway through the game so they won't even have to worry.....

Tibbs has clearly been reading Harry’s past few seasons of Franchise coverage.
