You knew it was coming eventually. Franklin “Nitty” Session is the Week 4 Player of the Week. 

After Elevate’s 74-66 victory over Reapers Black Ops on Sunday in which he turned in a vintage Frank Nitty performance (37 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists), Frank said he’s back to having fun at the Drew – and he shared the wealth, putting on a show for fans, complete with his signature trash talk for his opposite number on the Reapers, the Reapers bench, the refs, and fans all over the gym. 

His game was punctuated by high-flying dunks, 40-foot jumpers, unstoppable drives powered by that impossible-to-time first step of his, and of course, a crazy lob, this time to new addition Doc Bradley (although it wasn’t Doc’s biggest alley-oop of the day, which came from the finally recovered Markus Monroe throwing it from half-court and finishing over two defenders). 

The four-time MVP is quick to tell anyone who’ll listen he doesn’t want a ‘ship this year, but the way he’s playing, it doesn’t look like it. Elevate’s got back-to-back Players of the Week and still looks like they’ll be one of the teams to beat for anyone looking to replace their Tuff Fades banner next summer.
