Portland Lumberjacks Press Releases

  • There is just nothing to say +

    Portland, Or. Boy its been quiet in Portland this season! We are not just talking about the crowd numbers either that are hovering just over 9,000 a contest, creating an eerie feeling in the stadium. From the flamboyant rookie Ronald Richardson to the GM and all the media and staff in-between, there has just been nothing of note from this team. Obviously the results have not been of note, 7-44 is terrible. Last in the categories of points per game, rebounds per game, FGM, offensive efficiency and (tied for) defensive efficiency and finally turnover %. The team have sucked, and although their last 10 games have seen a 3-7 record, its still all quiet in the locker room. New recruit Albert Read More
  • Senior citzens only +

    Portland, Or. With all the glamour and expectation of the new season well and truly a distant memory, the hype and introduction press conferences like settled dust in the rear view mirror, we sit down with key FA signing Albert to talk about how he’s going out here in Portland. Tell us your thoughts on the season so far? “Well it is still only young, but I am here to be the face of this franchise. I am not concerned that we are 2 games in and haven’t won, last game we push the tritons to the end! It will come. It will come Albert we are sure of that, our concern is that you will be retired before then. Read More
  • Rookie draft review +

    Portland, Or. With the third pick in the 2021 draft the Portland lumberjacks took a chance on the 19year old kid Ronald Richardson. 6’10” and out of California, Ronald has already divided the fan base with his loud mouth and louder predictions. Already the youngest has protested the fact that the club will sell his jerseys with Richardson on the back instead of the RR he so desperately wanted. “Im the cream of the crop! These other cats are like the Ford, Toyota or Hyundai’s of this league, but me, I’m the Rolls Royce, When I roll, heads turn, when I move and play, you know you wanta have a look and let me tell you, you know you want Read More
  • Here we go again +

    Portland, Or. As we sit and contemplate what lies ahead, most lumberjacks fans seem to have a sense of excitement! What, excitement? Yes, for the readers from beyond the most loyal lumberjacks fan, the word excitement and Portland basketball have not sat well together for some time now. But there is excitement here in town and let me explain it to you. 1: There is no other city domestic or abroad that has a kick ass lumberjack as their logo! I mean in an age of political correctness, our beard wearing, axe carrying lumberjack is an anomaly that we cherish, we cherish it slightly more than the beaver that we wore with pride in the seasons leading up to the Read More
  • EXIT interview GM Trent +

    Portland, Or. With a record of 15-65, one less win that last year, you would think that GM Trent would want to flee town asap. However the still relatively young GM put himself in front of the wolves and as expected was eaten up. Credit to him for trying to shine light on the darkest of situations, but none of the old heads in the room were having any of it. Time is running out for the GM and unfortunately we are not sure he is aware of that fact, the 50 minutes press conference he gave was all about the future and little about the problems about to slap him in the face. Thanks to the editor and chief Read More
  • what did we expect? +

    Portland, Or. The season was never meant to bring a title shot. The season was never meant to produce all stars, all OBWL team awards or many other highlights that would inspire the city. We knew all this, so what did we expect? To be honest not this. What is this? William Cole. The 7’2” Centre who has been potentially the only bright spot this season. He has been averaging 12.3 points and 6.8 rebounds a game. Locking in the starting centre spot for the Lumberjacks, his PER is at 17.9 and has a fair bit of room to grow. It is hoped by the lumberjacks staff that he will continue to develop and become a menacing force in the Read More
  • Dont let the door hit you on the way out +

    Portland, Or.   An unnamed source has given us this information on the last and possibly most explosive conversation GM Trent had with Mack Lavoie, a conversation that took place just hours before he was traded to the knights.   Mack was the last remaining piece from the team  GM Trent inherited when he first started in Portland. Well Lawrence is still there, but he just keeps hanging around, so I guess they give him a jersey and let him play a few minutes each night – I think it’s their community service to be honest?   When pushed on the Mack trade, the GM offered this.   “We wanted to make him our franchise guy. We had moved EVERY SINGLE Read More
  • First six pack of the season +

    Portland, Or. Even the most loyal and passionate Lumberjacks fan couldn’t have imagined their team sitting at 6 wins at this early stage of the season, this pen book rebuild that has seen some turbulent times in Portland has previously dampened fans expectations of this team. “Six wins this early, that to me is a massive credit to coach Broom who has really pointed the ship in the right direction, we had 16 last season for the whole season!” On fan chimed in. Another said, “the team plays with a grit that represents the city! Something we can connect with, this kind of play will bring fans back, regardless of the result. When I see Cole knock players like Flowers Read More
  • At the foot of hte mountain +

    Portland, Or. “We are not as good as our record” Head coach Broom said after the lumberjacks finished off their second home win of the season. At 2-3, nobody thinks the lumberjacks are either! Broom went on to say. “We are still trying to find our identity, after last year this franchise needed some direction and identity, that is what I have been trying to do this off season and into this season. Our expectation is the be the worst team in the league, when asked what would a successful season look like for us, I commented the No 1 pick, but that is not fair to the guys on this roster. Nor to those we feel can actually be Read More
  • Portland Draft review +

    Portland, Or. It was an interesting draft haul for the Portland Lumberjacks. With the 12th pick being their only first round shot, it was important that they made a selection that would move the team into the future with a sense of hope. So when Tony Myrick’s name was called out, there were some relieved coaches in the Portland bunker. New head coach Morris Broom was most relieved, he had this to say about their new first round addition. “ Tony is a young 19 year old with superman like strength! This team was shoved around by every team in the league last year, and getting strength was the biggest need we had. Tony has great FT ability and the potential Read More
