Re: Good If It Goes: The Story of the OBA

I’m loving the Carrot. A unique trophy befitting the league.

Irving Crows
The Irving Crows will be one of two teams joining the league from the city of Irving, the other being the Ricos. These players wanted to include a haunting bird reminiscent of darken skies and storms on the horizon. The Crows will be adopting an orange and black color scheme with silver on the outline. The two Irving teams will share a gym at the Alberts Mess Hall of Irving.

Irving Ricos
Up next is the Irving Ricos, the other team that will be playing in the Alberts Mess Hall of Irving. Named after the infamous racketeering schemers of the 1920s in the country, the Ricos will be sporting a red and navy color combo, while wearing gray on their home floor. The logo is merely their wordmark, in cursive writing.

Re: Good If It Goes: The Story of the OBA

The Bay Bishops
The Bishops will be representing The Bay, a large seaport between Gilroy and Murdlock. They chose the Bishops for multiple reasons. For starters, they will be playing in the basement of the town cathedral, known as the Green Center. The name "Bishops" has history; when neighboring countries landed their ships at port, Bishop Green would come on down and bless the cargo and the people who transported it. Bishop Green was well liked among the townfolk and visiting shipmates alike, and hosted many dinners and crews at the cathedral. Alas, Bishop Green passed away at the ripe young age of 102.

The Bishops' colors are green and gold. Their logo is a green mitre adorned with a golden crucifix, one that also appears on their center court.

Re: Good If It Goes: The Story of the OBA

Boothtown Mobsters
The city of Boothtown is the final team given a slot in the OBA for the 1974 season. With their addition, Boothtown becomes the farthest western team in the league. Boothtown was given the name of the Mobsters due to the ridiculous amount of crime going on in the city's underworld, impressive and frightening given the town's small population. The team is also run by a guy simply known as Jimmy "the Knife" and uh... I think it was merely a "okay whatever you say boss no questions asked" kind of deal. Anyway...

The team will be wearing red, black and grey as their colors and will play at the Boothtown Gymnasium.

Re: Good If It Goes: The Story of the OBA

Murdlock #1 Logo/Name Change
The team formerly known as Murdlock #1 have decided that they will only be changing their name and logo. As such, I bring you...
The Murdlock Monocles!

The Monocles chose their name as an ode to lawmakers who founded the city and were famous for sporting monocles. Their color scheme will remain the same.

Re: Good If It Goes: The Story of the OBA

Murdlock #2 Name Change
While maintaining their simple "M" logo and their color scheme, the team has decided to go with the Murdlock Razors as their new name. No real reason was given other than "we thought it sounded cool."

The 1974 Season

The OBA returned to the court (and future internet forums) after what seemed like forever. Four new teams made the league as intriguing as ever. Let's see how it went down:

The Desherd City Dachshunds dominated the season, winning all but three of their games and running away with the top spot in the league. The Desherd Dogs were led by Brian Williams, who took home the League MVP trophy for the second time in his young career.

Andre Oz carried The Team of the River Galloway, remaining one of the dominant two-way players the league had seen. The Team won many close games, sporting only one loss at their home, The River Centre to the regular season top dogs.

Two new teams joined the fray to much success. The Bay Bishops, despite not having anybody make either All-League team, played stout defense en route to the #3 seed and a playoff appearance in their first year. Following them is the Irving Ricos, led by Uisto Aldivando. When Uisto wasn't correcting news outlets on the spelling and pronunciation of his name, he was putting basketballs in the bucket. His 23.5 ppg contributed to his nomination to the All-OBA Second Team.

Despite finishing the regular season with the same record as the Ricos, the McQuelsey Woodpeckers found themselves on the outside looking in. Deacon Moss put together another great campaign, solidifying himself as one of the most dangerous players in the league. With the help of Isaac Revon, they made the Woodpeckers an exciting team to watch. The Woodpeckers were swept by the Ricos in the regular season, resulting in their exclusion from the playoffs.

The Murdlock Razors and Boothtown Mobsters put together solid showings, despite finishing with losing records. In the case of the Razors, Carl Baker led the league in assists, but had little help on the defensive end. Boothtown, despite boasting four players across both All-OBA teams, battled injuries and some disgruntlement from management throughout the year. Darnell Donald emerged as a force in the league, earning himself First Team honors.

The Murdlock Monocles, Irving Crows, and Ensylvan Drakes held down the bottom of the league. Although they played teams tough, they simply failed to eclipse as many wins as the teams above them. Highlights for the Monocles and Crows included a split in their respective in-town rivalries.

Ensylvan's bright spot included a new type of salt added in the popcorn sold at the concession stands so... at least there is that...

Re: Good If It Goes: The Story of the OBA

Shame to see the Drakes down at the bottom of the standings, they're my favorite team. I'll be pulling for Team because I find them to be different in a cool way.
