Who would have thought that 2029 would be the year that Renato Ardoin would get his shot at a ring. Of course he is not the player he once was and is no longer the star of the Chaos, but he is still playing an important role for a team that is setting records for the franchise. Ardoin signed a 2 year deal last season to rejoin his old team, after spending 4 seasons with the Americans. It was his hope that he could help the young squad get to the finals and win a ring. As of right now, the LA Chaos are battling it out with the London Knights for the OBWL Championship. 

This is uncharted territory for Ardoin, his teammates and the entire organization. GM Whetzel has tried building a competitive squad for the last several seasons, getting them to the playoffs nearly every year, but either losing in the first round or being blown away by the Pioneers or Tritons in the second round has been his prize. Whetzel's team not only has this veteran sharpshooter in Ardoin, but it has several young guns that are proving to be tough eggs to crack.

Nelson Jones was signed to a 1 year deal this season and although he was not on the All-Star team, he did participate in the festivities. He proved his worth shooting the long ball and won the three point shooting competition. His great shooting and excellent defense have helped propel the Chaos to new heights. Jones shot lights out from downtown in game one against the Knights, going 4-8 from three. 

Kenny Gott was another new addition to the Chaos roster and there were many critics of the high dollar signing. Gott signed a 5 year deal worth over 77 million. Many thought Gott was overpaid and would not live up to the paycheck. GM Whetzel believed otherwise and his gamble seemed to pay off. Gott earned 1st team All-Defense this season and his stat line showed he was a major contributor to the team's success.

Geoffrey Askew has continually improved and is now considered the team's best player. He also earned a 1st team All-Defense award this season and is playing incredible basketball.

Andrew Culbertson has been unhappy with the team in the last couple seasons. He was being shopped around in a trade at the beginning of 2029, but luckily a trade was not made, because the big man has really stepped into his role and the team chemistry for the Chaos is off the charts. 

This is exciting times for Los Angeles. There is still a lot left to do. We can only hope that the team stays healthy and strong for the rest of the series. LA leads London 1-0, but they need to be very careful. Jian Lian and his Knights have been here before and they know how to win.
