Jameel
Watkins
American Jameel Watkins (211-C/F-77) had a very impressive game in the last round for second-ranked Panasonic T., receiving a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 5.
The 35-year old player had a double-double of 23 points and 12 rebounds, while his team edged out Mitsubishi DD (#6, 3-7) 77-74. Panasonic T. maintains the 2nd position in Japanese JBL. They are still close to the very top. Panasonic T. would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 8-2 record. Watkins turned to be Panasonic T.'s top player in his first season with the team. Former Georgetown University star has very solid stats this year. Watkins is in league's top in points (3rd best: 17.6ppg), rebounds (2nd best: 11.5rpg) and averages impressive 1.9bpg and 59.5% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 35-year old American Ron Hale (203-F-77) of Mitsubishi DD. Hale had a very good evening with a double-double of 28 points and 15 rebounds. Bad luck as Mitsubishi DD was edged by the higher-ranked Panasonic T. (#2, 8-2) 68-67. Mitsubishi DD is still second from the bottom in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 3-7 record. Hale is one of the most experienced players at Mitsubishi DD and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Nick Fazekas (211-F-85) of Toshiba BT (#5). Fazekas scored 19 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Toshiba BT, leading his team to a 71-49 easy win against the higher-ranked Toyota Alvark (#1, 8-2). Toshiba BT needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 6 victories and 4 lost games. Fazekas has a great season in Japan. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.1ppg (2nd best) and rebounds with 9.8rpg (3rd best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. J.R. Sakuragi (206-F/C-76) of Aishin SH - 11 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Joji Takeuchi (207-F/C-85) of Hitachi SR - 19 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Tilo Klette (206-C/F-77) of Hokkaido L. - 20 points and 15 rebounds
7. J.R. Sakuragi (206-F/C-76) of Aishin SH - 17 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
8. Magnum Rolle (211-C/F-86) of Mitsubishi DD - 32 points and 6 rebounds
9. Jamar Smith (206-F/C-80) of Hitachi SR - 20 points and 7 rebounds
10. Kosuke Takeuchi (206-C/F-85) of Toyota Alvark - 14 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists

The Player of the week is choosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3*(REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4*(2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3*(2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3*(3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
