Fall 2017 Season - Championship Teams and Top League Scorers Announced!

FanCam!

"Well, we didn't help the old team!"

"My guy is MVP of Elite!"

"If I can't play with these boots, you're on your own!"

"Be nice to us refs!"

Elite Division!


As predicted, Ninja takes it all, but just by one 3-point difference!  With the win, they caught the Repeat Offenders with the most championships!  That will make the Winter Season extra interesting!


Top 10!

MVP John!

Ninja!
30+ A/B Division!

The younger Woodchippers overpowered the venerable Elders, who seemed to run out of gas by the end.  They just couldn't keep up with the run and gun strategy of the champs, who successfully defended their title from the Spring Season, now with a total of 7 titles to match Ninja and RepeatOffenders (all tied for 3rd in the all-time list) - do we hear Elite for the Winter Season?!

Top 10!
MVP Darien!

WoodChippers!


30+ B/C Division!


Uncle Hoopsters pulled off a thriller win over the very competitive Killers, that went down to the last seconds to determine the winner!

MVP Raj!

Uncle Hoopsters!


Top 10!

40+ A Division!

We've not seen such a perfectly played game in Legends for awhile!  Two teams that should have produced a close game, turned into a rout, as the Woodchippers-2 could not miss!

MVP Christian!

Champion WoodChippers-2!

Top 10!


40+ B Division!


Ok, so the Commish's Office blew this prediction, as the BlueChips proved everyone wrong by running the table in the playoffs after a 2-5 regular season...go figure!  That's what can happen in Legends, you can't count any team out!  The BlueChips got hot, and that's that!  Hats off to the champs!

Champion BlueChips!

MVP Akinlabi!

Top 10!


40+ C Division!

Champs at last! Their twin (3?!) Towers all showed up...BIG!  So their previous 0-3 playoff record is now on the upswing, and B Division, here we come!  

Champs BucketList!

MVP David!


Top 10!

Weeknight B/C Division!


Volume Integration would not be denied!  They played a great team game, that thwarted the young guns of the HD Chasers, as well as their Hall of Fame bound leader, Lance!

MVP Michael!

Volume Integration Champs!


Top 10!

Commish Short - Fall Finals - Predictions Update!


Fall Finals - Predictions Update!



We made it through the semis!  See below for the Commish Office's update!





Elite Division

Sorry Expansionites and Mighty Men, it will be Ninja and Repeat Offenders making it to the final for another epic battle in their long-standing rivalry!  They’ve met three times before in the Finals, with Ninja up 2-1, but RepeatO has the edge 7-6 in overall championships.  Avoiding players getting mad, the Commish’s Office will refrain from picking the winner!  Needless to say, it’s a must-see game!

Update! Repeat Offenders disappoint!  Ok, so the Expansionites pulled off the big upset!  Yes, they played well, but let's be serious - Ninja Looms!  Without RepeatO in their way, Ninja ends the Expansionites' lofty dreams of reaching the mountain top!

A/B Division

With the star-studded roster of the Elders, we cannot see Farmers taking them down, or even the vaunted Woodchippers, whom we think they will meet in the Finals!  PROCON has had an amazing season, and they are the dark horse!

Update! We nailed this Finals match-up!  Now it's time to see the Elders shut down the Woodchippers with their incredible team play!

B/C Division

Seeds 1 and 2 (Uncle Hoopsters and Killers) will meet in the Finals, dispatching Cordia Heat and Grindfathers (who pulled off a great upset in the QFs!)  Mr. Legend and Hall of Famer Dick Beville has put together a winning squad, but it won’t be easy against the Uncles!  It all depends who shows up for the game, but we have to lean to the Hoopsters to pull out the win!

Update! Nailed another Finals match-up!  To complete the prediction, we stand by our original - Uncle's win!

40+ A Division

This is a very even division with any team able to make the big run!  We think the Woodchippers-2 will defeat the Clydesdales in the Final!

Update - Right again! But this one will be a nail biter!  Again, we stand by the younger legs of the Woodchippers-2!

40+ B Division

This division is almost unpredictable!  But we have to go with the #1 seed in the Barnsters to defeat TGX in the finals!

Update - Hey, what can we say....can't be right all the time!  We did say i was almost unpredictable!  And what the heck went on with the Barnsters!  Bad time to lay an egg!  However, we must swap to TGX for the win!  So the Blue Chips got lucky catching an ice-cold Barnsters.  Did you see TGX crush the HoundDogs?!  TGX wins!

40+ C Division

Bucket List, Bucket List, Bucket List!  It’s their season!  They are 0-3 in the Finals (not including a watered down Summer Season win!) but upped their game with some key off-season pickups!  They should down either the FCC Clipboards or Dealers in the Finals!

Update!  A caveat here...as long as the Bucket List's Twin Towers show, this game is theirs!  If one doesn't show, they could be looking at an 0-4 Finals record!

Weeknight League

Wow, it’s the Finals on Tuesday!  Volume Integration pulled off a huge upset of #1 seed X-Factor in the semis, but we think the run-and-gun HD Chasers will be too much for them in the Finals!

Update!  We are switching to Volume Integration winning it all!  Oops, they already did win - CONGRATS and see you in DisneyWorld!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL, and See you Sunday!

Spring 2017 Season - Championship Teams and Top League Scorers Announced!

FanCam!

Daddy, I won!
It pays to be a Legends player!

Don't worry, we got this game!

Too close a game! Should I clap?

My team needs to win, and I need new pants!

Too cool to smile!

Coach, can I go in now?
A packed house for the Finals!

See all the season's pictures here:

Elite A Division

The RepeatOffenders lived up to their name, returning to the top of the Elite division while locking up the OutlawzMarcus Passmore, however, did not (pass more!), as he put up 21 critical points! League MVP Art "Big Man" Crowder offered more than his immense court presence, following up with 14 points. 
RepeatOffenders also broke the total championships logjam with Ninja, as they both were tied at 6 Legends championships going into this season - fitting they defeated Ninja on their way to their 7th title!

MVP Art "Big Man" Crowder!

RepeatOffenders!

Elite B Division

Colonial's Revenge exacted their vengeance on Team Glow, coming back from a huge point deficit in the last few minutes of the game to successfully defend their title! Down by as many as 15 points, the Colonial's MVP Scott Bauer put away 20 to help pull his team up and over Glow, securing their second championship in a row.  Team Glow members can get a discount for off-season therapy sessions after losing such a commanding lead in the waning minutes of the game - sorry guys, come back and make things right in the fall!

MVP Scott Bauer!
Colonial's Revenge!

30+ A Division

The Woodchippers shredded the Dukes, ending their miracle run in the playoffs. Coming off an 0-7 season, the Dukes defeated the number one seed in the quarters and fought all the way to the finals, where it seems the magic ran out against the Woodchippers, and their MVP Terrell Barnes' incredible defense. Jon Mukri scored the highest, with 14 points to secure his team's victory. 

MVP Terrel Barnes!

Woodchippers!

30+ B/C Division

HAVOC wreaked themselves upon Vorsprung as they blew past them to take the championship in dominating fashion! Jason Burston and Didier Ngay's combined 18 points helped HAVOC put their victory away. MVP Miguel Marti's voracity contributed heavily to his team's win!  A great team effort, as no member scored more than 9 points!

MVP Miguel Marti!
HAVOC!

40+ A Division

Resistance was futile for Z2 as Borg added the title of 40+ A champs to their cabinet! Chris Quinn's 20 points served to end Z2's chances and put his team on top, while MVP Kevin Nearpass completely shut down Z2's offense!


MVP Kevin Nearpass!

Borg!

40+ B Division

The Barnsters were forced to fold as Ante Up took the win in this nail-biter that came down to the last seconds. MVP Robert Taylor's 11 points nailed the Barnsters coffin shut as he and his team fought to the very end and secured themselves the slimmest margin of victory.

MVP Robert Taylor!

Ante Up!

40+ C Division

TEAM Glauser (no imagination in that team name!) had a triumphant end to the Spring season as they quite handily crossed off Bucket List with a 20+ point margin. Larry Baccari scored the most for his team with 14 points, backed up by MVP Ryan David with 11.


MVP Ryan David!
TEAM Glauser!
Top 15 Season Scorers for the division:

Tuesday B/C Division

Tuesday turned into Blues-day for X-Factor as the HD Chasers took the win in this hard fought battle! X-Factor was 9-0, looking for a championship ring to seal the perfect season - but alas, such as it goes for some hugely talented sports teams.  Just ask the 2007 New England Patriots!  Lance Posey's 15 points were key to securing the close game for his team, while MVP Will Turner's massive court presence and timely foul shooting helped push his team over the top!

MVP Will Turner!

HD Chasers!
