Los Angeles Chaos Press Releases

  • Personality Clashes Lead To Big Changes +

    In 2023, the fans in LA will see many changes. Everyone knew about the big squabbles between Horace Robinson and Renato Ardoin. When Horace left the team in free agency a couple years ago, Ardoin took over as the clear team leader and in some cases, was the starting point guard. A late season trade last year, brought the potential superstar PG back to LA and many thought this would be a great mix of talent. Everybody might have been right about the talent, but they didn't plan for the ego and attitude problems that started immediately. LA went on an 8 game losing streak and endured lots of locker room and practice facility turmoil that ultimately ended with Coach Read More
  • A Little Known Vet Named Cecil +

    Imagine a young kid from Henry Senior High School in San Diego, California, getting a call from the athletic director at Texas Tech in 2010. Hey, Cecil... we want you to come play for us. What a thrill! Why Cecil, you might ask? He was a 6'1", 190 pound SG that can't really shoot all that well and plays bad defense. Well, Texas Tech saw something that they liked. They immediately made him a starter in 2011. He averaged 12.5 ppg while shooting 42%. His percentage from beyond the arc was not good. He had a decent year, but it wasn't what the Raiders were hoping for. Cecil was benched the next two years and saw little time on the Read More
  • Chaos On Track For The Home Stretch +

    This was supposed to be the best year yet since GM Whetzel took over. There was more talent and a midseason trade brought an old friend back to the lineup. This hasn't been the case as the Chaos struggle to keep above .500. The first problem was ball hogging issues with Lenny Davis. He and Ardoin both demand to have the ball in their hands and it proved to be a bit of an issue. The two scorers managed to work it out and came together. Both Davis and Ardoin were selected as All-Stars. The next problem developed after Whetzel pulled the trigger on a trade that brought PG Horace Robinson back home. Robinson's ball handling and passing skills are Read More
  • Ardoin and Robinson Butting Heads +

    It was an exciting homecoming for Horace Robinson when he was acquired in a trade with New Jersey, to bring him back home to the team that drafted him. Everyone associated with the team was excited, but it was a short celebration. In Horace's absence, Renato Ardoin has been the teams clear leader in all topics of conversation. Even when Lenny Davis joined the team and took some of Ardoin's touches away, it was still clear who the leader was and everybody was good with it. Upon Horace's return though, it has become clear that he thinks he is the leader and focal point of the team. So far, this has done nothing but cause massive turmoil to the flow Read More
  • Horace Homecoming? +

    A shocking trade rumor hit the news wires last night. Could Horace be headed back to LA? The trade was confirmed late last night and we are told, Horace will suit up at home against the Lumberjacks. What did Whetzel have to give up to get Horace back? Well, it seems that the Chaos traded away a first round pick in 2024 and Daniel Brewer. Other players were added to the package that included Kenny Balt, Kade Kramer and Troy Benson. Lets talk about that. Kade Kramer has not been happy in LA for years. He has wanted out, but his contract of 8 million has not had any teams drooling. The guy is probably a future Hall of Fame Read More
  • Chaos Free Agency and Preseason Review +

    The Los Angeles Chaos landed one of the top free agents in big man Lenny Davis. Vitamin D as he was called in Boston, was a major part of the Buzzard's gameplan for this season, but the Chaos stole him away. Bostonians were outraged that Davis left for the West coast. The Buzzards front office was extremely upset with Vitamin D's agent, who didn't even attempt to see if GM Warnke would offer a more enticing contract than the Chaos had offered. It seemed clear that Davis wanted to go out West. Perhaps Whetzel had a really good sales pitch, but what we have heard is that Chaos team Captain Renato Ardoin and the Chaos' most improved player, Carl Terwilliger, Read More

  • Chaos Draft Second Round Big Man +

    The Los Angeles Chaos only had a second round pick in the 2022 Draft. They had pick number 49, which is a late second round pick. Chaos GM Travis Whetzel chose to go big as he has done in recent drafts. Whetzel has drafted past big men like Erwin Offutt, Carl Terwilliger and Daniel Brewer. Terwilliger has become an elite big man, but the others have some room to grow. This year the Chaos selected 21 year old Geoffrey Askew from USC Upstate. The 6'10" center started in 79 games for USCU throughout his career there. Askew was a two time 1st Team All-Conference player and a Freshman All-Conference Player in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Askew is a shot blocker, Read More
  • Twiggy Taking Care of Business in Vegas +

    Las Vegas, NV - Not many people imagined that after two playoff games in Las Vegas, the LA Chaos would be leading the series 2-0. In fact, I don't think anybody thought that. Game 1 was handled impressively by the Chaos. Ardoin was super efficient, scoring 28 points and doing it at a 70% accuracy rate, but the story of the series so far has been Carl Terwilliger, or "Twiggy" as his teammates call him. Twiggy is in his 7th season in the OBWL. He was drafted 8th by Vancouver and soon found himself playing in the D-League at LA's affiliate, but it didn't take long for him to show the franchise he was a valuable asset. Twiggy has been starting Read More
  • Chaos End of Season Report +

    The good news is, the Chaos are back in the playoffs for their fourth consecutive season. They finished the season with 47 wins and 33 losses. That's GM Whetzel's best record since taking over the franchise. The bad news is that the Chaos lost the battle for home court advantage. The last game of the season ended in a disappointing overtime loss to the Blackjacks at home. The Chaos were down all game long, but made a huge 4th quarter comeback to send the game into overtime. The Chaos would completely choke in overtime as the Blackjacks outscored them 13 to 3. This means the Chaos are packing their bags and headed to Las Vegas for the week. They will Read More
