Fall 2018: A Draft League Champs: Circle of Life

    Do you guys like a nice sliced hot dog cmon who doesnt like that
    Circle of Life 73 Mid-Life Crisis 63

    Matt Roberts C-
    Roberts played ok but not up to what his team needed and missed a wide open layup and some bunnies inside on easy matchups when his team was trying to gain momentum in the second half.

    Evan Korda ?
    I give Korda a C on offense and a F on defense, you are getting a C for only taking two shots and missing a wide open layup, and a F because you let sydorko hit 4 3’s during your teams comeback run.

    Sam pollack D
    Hurts me to do this but you clearly did not read my preview where I said it was all on you to minimize turnovers, as you had back to back turnovers to start the game. also attacking the rim while being covered by a shot blocker is not a good idea.

    Kevin Clarke B-
    Dominated the mismatch when he had it, but Gets a B because teammates had to tell him when he had the mismatch and to get in the post. Few missed open 3’s hurt also. Played hard defense on Yates, but didn’t fight over screens well.

    Eric benvenuti B-
    Eric settled way too much in the second half after personally putting circle of life in foul trouble himself. 3-12 from the field will not cut it from your teams only viable 3 point threat.


    Lyon can voorhees A
    There was a fast break layup that could have been a dunk. Only thing stopping Lyon from getting the A+ here on a great defensive showing. His size alone intimidated nutes to shoot from further and further away. That baseline dunk was nice.

    Jeff Yates B+
    Got exposed on defense by Clarke but did a good job not fouling and giving Mid-Life Crisis extra opportunities for more points. On offense tho, Yates was holding a clinic for anyone who wanted to learn how to shoot from distance. Even taking a page out of scrub mazz’s book and was looking to shoot no matter how open teammates were.

    Adriane Massone A+
    On defense Mr Patience was a nightmare. Getting steals and sending the outlet pass for an easy dunk before M-LC even knew to get back on D. On offense massone scores when needed and kept feeding the hot hands in sydorko and Yates. I talked to Adrian after the game(he is going to Disney world btw) and I noticed that he didn’t once reach for a steal. Every steal was either a bad pass or a bad decision and led right to easy fast break layups.

    Mike sydorko A-
    Can’t really nitpick on the X factor’s game. Played great defense. Switched and shut down nutes when he didn’t foul him. HIT EVERY 3 HE TOOK IN THE SECOND HALF. Only thing I can say is that he fouled too much. Great game overall tho.

    Matt despots B+ can’t give any negative grades to the winning team, but Matt has held his own against some of the better players, championship game was no exception. Matt rebounded, played hard defense, hit easy shots(except that 3) and used his fouls well to frustrate nutes.
