Welcome to the WSBA Sim Recap – a weekly blog piece to talk about the latest happenings in the WSBA – the first ever online league run by Wolverine Studios. If you’re looking for all the details on the league or to even join yourself click the button below and check out the league for yourself.
Chicago entered the sim with an 8-0 record and continued their unbeaten streak with seven more wins and even more impressive all of those wins were double digit victories. SG Ben Greer has been amazing leading the team with 26.3 PPG but he's not doing all the heavy lifting. SF Justin Brown has been no slouch himself averaging 20.1 PPG to go with 10.9 RPG, 7.3 APG and 1.9 SPG. As long as these two are healthy I'm not sure anyone can stop the Bison this season.
Charlotte, on the other hand, entered the sim looking for its first victory and they didn't wait long - dispatching of the Boston Irish 112-102 - at the beginning of the sim. The Wasps would go on to win one more game but at an overall record now of 2-13 their hopes are clearly of ping pong balls bouncing their way and not of the playoffs.
While the attention of the league has been focused on Chicago, Oklahoma City has been kicking up some dust in the West. The Twisters are 13-1 themselves and have a big three that would make anyone jealous. PF Shon Roberts currently leads the league in scoring at 29.9 PPG (to go along with his 11.3 RPG, 3.2 BPG and 2.2 SPG) and is possibly the early leader for MVP.
The Twisters also rely heavily on PG Shota Sumbatashvili and C Noel Bishop. This overseas dynamic duo from Estonia and Australia respectively provide the perfect compliment to each other and while either one could be a top option on any team here they represent the second and third options in the pecking order which is a fantastic luxury for the Twisters. Could we be heading to an OKC/CHI final? That's what it looks like after the first two sims.
