Anaheim Archers Press Releases

  • Building a Wall +

    ANAHEIM, CA - Five months ago, the Archers, by way of San Diego, drafted a young, exciting point guard John Wall at pick number five. Wall was a gifted athlete with one eye glued on the rim at all times but many had doubts about how his ability would translate to the next level. Lacking the court vision of traditional point guards, at 6'1" tall, Wall was considered by many to be too small for the shooting guard position. "There was no way we could pass on him. We were tempted by others but could not shake the memory of another exciting young PG we drafted in the ABL the year prior to merger. That player was the multiple time all Read More
  • Archers say goodbye to an Unsung Hero +

    ANAHEIM, CA - Ambrose Brown, long time scout for the Anaheim Archers, announced his intention to retire at the end of the regular season. GM Eric Stelle presented Brown with a set of TaylorMade golf clubs and a lifetime membership to the prestigious Riviera Country Club in Santa Monica as he and Brown faced the press. "An organization is only as good as those directing it and the Archers have had the privilege of having some of the greats on staff. From the fantastic years and the championship earned under Coach Kolby Kurzyna to what I hope will be many more successful seasons under Irwin Bennett. Today, another one of the greats, Ambrose Brown, has decided to retire." Brown, who just Read More
  • Archers Enter Playoffs in "Unique" Position +

    ST LOUIS, MO - Like clockwork the machine in Anaheim has cranked out yet another fifty win season but as the regular season closes and eyes turn to the playoffs, the Archers find themselves in a position they've never been in before... the visitor. For the first time since the OBWL was founded, the Archers face the prospect of being the underdog in the playoffs. "In the entire history of our organization, the Archers have never been anything less than a home court seed in the playoffs," said general manager Eric Stelle, "that is less an indictment of the Archers' success and more of the increased competition we see within the league. To win 50 games and not see home court Read More
  • Lions Youth and Atheticism on Display in Ottowa +

    PARIS, FRANCE - While the OBWL took a pause to celebrate all things basketball, a similar, less heralded celebration was being held in Ottowa home of the reigning OBDL champs the Ottowa Omnipotence. The Omnipotence, affiliate to a struggling New Jersey franchise, steamrolled over the Lions last season in an impressive sweep behind the inspired play of Zachary Stubbs' MVP performance (23.1 points on 51.3% shooting). Yet, half a season later, the winds of fate are fickle in the development league and what was once talked about as a younger Logan Goloboy, wilted in the furnace of the OBWL. That's life in the development though players are called up, sent down, and abandoned to their fate each season. The Lions de Read More
  • Archers Backcourt in Disarray +

    In what seems to be an annual story, the Anaheim Archers' back court is in disarray again and knotted with controversy. Since trading start PG Jeramy Evans, the Archers back court has struggled to find any consistency. In 2011, the Archers started with (then) youngster Hao Billups. After Billups left via free agency, Stephan Steinmuller was brought in but he was immediately enshrouded in controversy as he skipped many of the Archers off season camps and came into the season out of shape with eroded skills. He stayed on for a bit but Jeremy Evans was soon acquired to take the wheel in midseason and that one and a half seasons from 2012 to 2013 represent the second longest tenure Read More
  • (Off)Season of Change +

    ANAHEIM, CA (AP) - Despite fighting against it for quite a while now, a season of change is upon the city of Anaheim. The city has enjoyed a long history of success and it's become a matter of pride that the Archers have won at least 50 games every season since the OBWL's inception. During that span, the Archers habitually made the playoffs with runs to the Conference Finals and League Finals reaching the pinnacle only once in the 2016 season. Now after, nearly a decade of success, large scale change has finally made it to Anaheim. End of an Era --------------------------- From the beginning, the Archers were lead by one man, head coach Kolby Kuryzna. "Coach K" as he because known, Read More
  • ARCHERS SNUFF BLAZE, TURN GAZE TO PIONEERS +

    CHICAGO, IL - To many teams, just getting to the playoffs is an accomplishment but, for the Chicago Blaze and Anaheim Archers, the represent the next step along a path fraught with expectations. The match-up itself is the stuff that OBWL Marketer's dreams are made of. Two teams from what financiers would call "major markets" representing approximately 115.5 million in television revenue between the two. Both teams bring star power to the table but represent polar opposite styles. The Blaze bring a hard nosed interior boasting 1st team all defense and Defender of the Year Armando Bass, three time all star Orson Almonte, and 2 time all star (4 time all defense) Layne Rollins. To augment this, they bring slashing wings, Read More

  • Banana Bender Provides Mixed Dividends +

    ANAHEIM, CA - Calendars have changed over to 2019 and the OBWL approaches the halfway mark. With 32 games played (32 on the road), the Archers find themselves in the same position as the beginning of the season, doggedly striving to take the American Conference but only managing to hang on to a wafer thin mint of a margin between teams. "Ultimately, that home court right is an important one to us but the prize... the prize is home court throughout," said GM Stelle of his team's place in the standings, "To do that, you have to win the conference. To do that, you must slay giants." The giants alluded to are the perennial juggernauts in the American Conference, the Kansas Read More
  • Road Warriors in an OBWL Wasteland +

    ANAHEIM, CA - As the Archers continue their 8 game road trip that zig zags across the US, they look to keep their traditional spot in the push for the playoffs but, as the early standings show, holding on to home court in the American Conference is no easy thing. "I'm seeing some promising elements at this point of the season," said general manager Eric Stelle, "Would I prefer to be tied with the Pioneers and Tritons for the Conference right now? Sure, but expectations have to be realistic at this point. We've played nine games on the road vs. three at home and there is something to be said about the comforts of home.
