OK. Now the NBL is rolling

In: NBL — Saturday, 30 Sep, 2023

SENSATIONAL. It took until the third game of the NBL’s new season, but fans finally saw a cracker, Perth Wildcats staving off Tasmania JackJumpers 101-95, Jordan Usher delighting the 12,000-plus at RAC Arena with a club record 35-point debut at 65 per cent.

Great night. Pity about the basketball

In: NBL — Friday, 29 Sep, 2023

WHAT a ghastly tip-off to the NBL season. Melbourne United, shooting at a mind-numbing 35 per cent, saw off crosstown rival South East Melbourne 82-67, who, while managing to deliver a total only Aaron Fearne could love, shot the ball at an unconscionable 29 per cent. Magnificent opening night crowd, celebrity row fully in tow and Scottie Pippen along for the ride, it sure turned bumpy fast.

FANS of the Boomers need to have no illusions about the difficulty of the task ahead at the Paris Olympic Games.

Boomers World Cup a small F fail

In: Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 12 Sep, 2023

NOW the dust has settled on the FIBA World Cup, it’s fair to say Australia delivered a small ‘F’ fail in Okinawa and Manila. You cannot fly out spouting “gold vibes only,” then not make it to the quarter-final round after promising a podium finish. Sorry. That’s a fail. It just isn’t a crisis.

THERE are major scores to settle when Slovenia takes on Australia tomorrow night in Manila to open the second group stage of the FIBA Men’s World Cup, the Boomers needing two wins to go through to the quarter-finals, having successfully qualified for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

In: NBA — Wednesday, 7 Jun, 2023

IT was business as usual for Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets in the first game of the NBA Finals, but it came to an abrupt halt in Game 2 when the Miami Heat struck back with a withering final quarter avalanche to tie the best-of-7 championship at 1-1 as the series shifts to Florida.
