London Ends Season

As the OBWL Finals is about to get underway, London finds itself in an all too familiar place – vacation.  The past two seasons have seen the Knights get ousted in the conference semis.  Last year it was the Huskies, this year it was the Demons.  Two consecutive early exits have fans wondering if this is it for this talented group of underachievers.  Crumley, Larry, Owens and even Lavoie have become recognizable names around the league.  Most would agree that they are near the top in their respective positions but in 3 years the Knights have won 1 division crown, made it to the conference finals once and 2 flameouts in the conference semis.  Not the results that fans and management expected.




Rumors from the front office is that they are looking for change.  League sources have confirmed that Lavoie has been quietly shopped around.  There’s been rumbling that inquiries have been made for Crumley.  Would the team part ways with their entire backcourt and the face of the franchise?  Its unknown at this point and the GM has been silent and unresponsive.




“Something needs to be done.  Maybe you can say we lost cause Val was hurt but I honestly don’t know if it would have even mattered.  We just didn’t look good out there.  To make matters worse we have to listen to that sloppy slob out in Denver talking sht to us.  I hope Fore sprain both his ankles.” said one unidentified and disgruntled fan




London fans will recalled that Denver predicted a convincing win over the Knights before the series started.  Most took it as just weed induced noise coming out of Colorado and chest thumping while the Knights were without their top playmaker.  But nonetheless the proclamation did not sit well with the city of London. 




“I really hope no one gets traded and that we come back with the same squad, fully healthy.  I want to see the smirk knocked off their pasta smeared faces.” said another fan




Regardless, this season has ended for the current iteration of the Knights.  The team has seen Owens become more assertive and a focal point of the offense.  Larry won another DMVP.  Lavoie has settled into the small forward position and had his best season.  The only question remains is the health of Crumley and how the organization will remake the roster.
