Dragoons Hopeful

Fans are still hopeful that the Dragoons can secure the last playoff spot in the conference.

However, they lost an important game to the Muscle just a few days ago.  A game that had meaning for the team and they just feel flat on their faces with against them.  It was a 24 point loss.

Now, they will have to beat good competition.  The team is two games down heading into the last week of competition.  The team could tank and secure a possible lottery spot or they can compete and not make the playoffs.

Early season rumors had Fort Worth trying to leave town in the years to come.  It is possible the fans and owner may want them out if they can't make a playoff run this year.

Still hope?

Is there any hope for the Dragoons this year?

There was plenty of hope at the beginning of the year.  The team is young and full of solid players.  It appears that they struck gold with this years first round pick, Lett.  Fort Worth is just 2.5 games out of a playoff spot.

However, the team has gone 4-15 in their last 19 games.  This has led to the lack of hope to get into the playoffs.  After all, their is eleven teams ahead of them in the conference.  If the season ended today, General Manager Hitch would have the fifth overall draft pick.

So, should the team tank and build again in the draft?  Can the team win enough games to get into the playoffs?  Can they win enough games to make the owner happy and get an increase budget?

"We have plenty of good players here.  We just don't have one player that acts as our superstar every night." Coach Kolby Kurzyna said. Many loyal fans thought the new coach could get the team to the conference finals this year.  Could it be the team isn't as good as many believe?  Maybe Kolby hasn't molded the players into his system.

There are so many questions.  There is a half season to find out what the answers are.

The Dragoons General Manager will look to an old face to bring success to his team.  Fort Worth is in the playoff hunt at 10-13.

Hitch decided to cut Charles Banks who was not getting much playing time this year.  He claimed Jose Peters off the waivers.  He was originally drafted with the eight pick in the second round by Fort Worth in 2019 and played through 2023. 

He is a double digit scorer.  Hitch is hoping he can get some scoring off the bench with Peters.  There is not much risk if the signing fails.

Dragoons start of season

The Dragoons have been quite in the off season.  With only about 7 million to spend in free agency, Fort Worth was not expected to be a major player.

Before the draft, General Manager Hitch made a trade with the Sharks.  He traded a second round pick for Budde.  He is a former Mr. Basketball and was a first round pick last year.  Hitch felt Budde would be better than any second rounder he could draft this year.  With the 15th overall pick in this years draft, Fort Worth added Earl Lett.  Lett grew up in Austin, Texas and played for the University of Texas.  He wanted to stay close to home and Fort Worth meets those wants.  Many feel he is ready to play now.  However, he will come off the bench behind Baranowki who just had a break out year.

In free agency, two former Dragoons players were signed.  Shows and Reece were both brought back, but they played with a different coaching staff.  The signings come as a surprise.  Reece is a little better shooter and has a lot more speed, but does he make enough of a difference to sign him?  The other signing was Shows who is a center that played for Fort Worth just last year.  Why is this a surprise? It is because Budde was just brought in.  Shows is bigger and stronger but lacks the stamina.

Will the Dragoons sign anyone else?  Who will make the team coming out of training camp?

Early line up possibilities include

Granger, Budde, Shows

Budd, Carver

Baranowski, Lett, Banks, Reece

Motley, Maxwell, Reed

Cottingham, Griffen

Dragoons long awaited press conference

There have been many questions about what is happening in Fort Worth.  There has not been many answers

Rumors were flowing that the Dragoons owner Blake Cain was looking to move the team.  It started with rumblings about a move to South Florida.  The Sharks had an opening for a new owner.  The team has a budget of more than 30 million more than the Dragoons.  It would be a bigger market with a dedication fan base and a decent economy.  Did the Fort Worth ownership actually look at this option?  The league office will not comment.

General Manager, Kevin Hitch, had to field more rumors in the days following the announcement that the Sharks had secured new ownership.  What were the new rumors?  There was an article in a small time newspaper out of Houston.  The front page headlines asked if the Dragoons were still interested in moving.  This in itself didn't seem like a question that had not already been asked.  However, there were more details in  the article.

The writer would not disclose his sources, but he stated that the mayor had been in talks with Cain about using a new stadium.  A new stadium one might ask?  Houston doesn't have a stadium but the city has a high demand for getting a team.  The economy is in good shape and it is a larger market than Fort Worth. 

What are the benefits to this move?  Houston is 275 miles up the road.  It is close enough that current fans could still come to a game.  The economy would drive higher ticket prices and a new city could bring new fans.  Would Cain sell the team or stay the owner upon a move?  What would it take to get a stadium built.  The reported would not give any more details other than his source said that the Dragoons had made a commitment to pay for part of a new stadium.

If this is true, what happens if the offer is turned down?  Will Dragoons lose their existing fan base.

Today, Hitch found out that potential coaches may be concerned also.  Two coaches accepted less money to take a position with other organizations.  He lost another coach to London by offering 10 million less than the Knights.  Would he have signed with a higher team budget?  No one will know for sure.  Hitch did convince Kolby Kurzyna to take the head coach position. 

He may not have been the top pick but he was among them.  This man took his team to the conference finals and has been Coach of the Year.  Kolby has made the playoffs for seven of the last eight years.  He has a career 552 winning percentage and came from the Americans.  When asked why he was hired, Hitch stated that he needed a coach that could handle change.  He showed this with a general manager who actively traded players?

Hmm, change?  It sure sounds like change of some kind is coming!

 Head Coach Kolby Kurzyna decided to take t

Sunkings fake injury?

"I don't know about these injury reports.  The leagues tells us Adler is out for the series after play had to be stopped during game two for him.  Then, he shows up for game three and plays 39 minutes.  Did he have a miracle cure?  I think the league should fine Dom and the Sunkings." Hitch stated with anger in his voice.

Now to play on the court.  Game one was all Sunkings in their home opener.  The Dragoons staff tried to utilize match ups and moved Motley to point guard.  After one game, he was moved back to shooting guard.  He immediately led the team to an upset with a 40 point effort.  He was 10-21 from the field, 7-14 from behind the arc, 13-14 from the free throw line and added 14 rebounds.  The Dragoons had stolen home court advantage but could not hold it.  At home, the game was within three in the last minute of the game, but Fort Worth lost.  "I heard many general managers saying I couldn't lead our team.  They said that the team could not compete and that I am not a star.  They can say what they want, but my team has come to play against the champs.  We will fight to the end." Motley explained after the tough loss.

Play resumes tonight.  The Dragoons are expected to see Adler for the entire game unless he mysteriously has another injury.  "They say he has migraines.  He better not come in the paint tonight," Newhous emphasized, "We will knock him around a bit and make him pay where ever we can strike him at."

Dragoons: Playoff bound

The Fort Worth Dragoons are once again in the playoffs.

Gone are the days when Denis lead the team at the point and Montes was in his prime hitting the basket.  Hofer, no longer defends the rim and Newhous is on the downside of his.

This team has a group of young talented players.  None are considered a top player in the league, but Hitch has brought the team concept to the players.  His coaching staff has the youngster believing that anything is possible.  With that said, they will have to step up to beat last years champions, the Sunkings.  The team will have three starters 24 and under.  The team has only 39 games of playoff experience.  Granger is the only player who has been playoff tested.

Hitch has promised that changes will be made for the playoffs.  There have been no clues on what they will be.  However, most experts believe that the Sunkings may sweep the series unless Fort Worth can come up with a perfect game plan and the play to go along with it.

Dragoons: Playoff bound

Fort Worth could be returning to the playoffs this year.  The team has missed them the last three years.  Last year, Coach Booker was able to get 32 wins.

This year, the Dragoons have 38 wins.  There are six team fighting for the last five positions.  The magic number for General Manager Hitch is three.  So, a combination of three wins or losses by the Dragoons or the Blackjacks.  Las Vegas has been playing well. They have won eight of ten and are just two and a half games out of the eighth spot themselves.

"We just have to take care of business during our last seven games.  If we do so, then we will find out if we can secure home field advantage," Hitch stated.  The team has some tough games ahead of them.  However, they secured a big win today against the Demons.  The experts feel that the Dragoons should get wins against the Blazers and two against the Lumberjacks.  The magic number to secure home field advantage is six.

At the beginning of the year, not many general managers had Fort Worth in the playoffs.  Some wondered if Hitch was over his head.  Many wondered why he was giving all the young players time.  As the year went on, he was questioned by fans on why he didn't go after players to make the team better.  There were trade talks but Hitch did not make a move.

In the end, the organization appears headed in the right direction.  No assets have been given up in future years. The team will have cap money next year with Newhous coming off the books.  There is a chance of increased budgets next year with a winning season.  On top of it all, the young players have developed.

Dragoons still competing

Dragoons fans are celebrating at the mid-year point.

There have been hopes that Fort Worth would be play-off bound his year.  However, General Manager Hitch didnt't go out and sign any big time free agents.  There were hopes that Hitch would be a trade to improve his team.  None came along as he didn't want to give up draft picks or his young talent.

Coach Booker is in the last year of his contract.  He may be having his best coaching year ever.  The record doesn't look great at 27-24, but it is good enough currently for fourth place and home field advantage in the play-offs.  There are sevn teams competing for the final five positions.  There is still a lot that could happen before the end of the year.

Can the young talent keep playing well?  Will the rookies tire out from the professional season?  Will the team remain without any major injuries? 

Fans remain hopeful that the team stays competitive.  "We aren't here for a good draft pic.  We are here to win games now." Coach Booker stated.  His job may depend on it.

Dragoons season

The Dragoons have stayed in playoff contention.  They have been inconsistent at times. 

The team has had highs and lows this season.  There have been wins against the Knights and Archers.  Then losses to teams like the Blackjacks.  It goes to show that the team is young and still learning.

The young players continue to get experience that should help when playoff time comes around.  Fort Worth is seventh in the play off race, but only a game and a half from the number five seed.

Although there has been trade talk, it appears Hitch will stay with the guys he has.  He does not want to give up the future for a player who can only help down the stretch.
