2022 - Year of the Sad Farewell

In: Misc — Monday, 15 Aug, 2022

WHAT a terribly sad year 2022 has been, with so many iconic sporting and entertainment figures passing away and we're not even two-thirds of the way through it! I've put off writing this for a while because every time I'm ready to type, another significant figure seems to die, further adding to our collective sorrow.

Get in early for dad's big day

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Tuesday, 26 Jul, 2022

THE NBL may be busy with its draw for the 2022-23 season, open roof game on December 23, Christmas Eve matches and even a breakthrough Christmas Day (Night?) fixture. But coming up much faster is Father's Day and maybe this year it's time to start thinking early to find dad the ideal gift.

Taking a (short) break

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Misc — Friday, 15 Jul, 2022

JUST finished a terrific project for WILKINSON PUBLISHING so taking a few days off to recharge the batteries. Guessing you'll survive without the website's take on what should have been a Boomers' avalanche over Saudi Arabia. Looking forward to being back next week. Cheers all.

It's time Australia had a new celebration

In: Boomers & Opals, Misc — Monday, 4 Jul, 2022

THERE hardly would be a single Aussie oblivious to the fact today is July 4, American Independence Day. Yet it says volumes about us that almost exactly a month ago on June 3, only a small group of mostly First Nations people celebrated or were even aware of Mabo Day, arguably Australia's most significant reconciliation development in 50 years.

East Asia Super League plans to leapfrog NBL

In: NBL, Misc — Thursday, 2 Jun, 2022

THE new East Asia Super League expects within three years to be one of the top three leagues in the world by audience numbers and commercial revenue. If we're ranking leagues, that would mean NBA first, Euroleague second and EASL third, suggesting our NBL needs to get a piece of this action sooner than later.

Look out! Here comes the new Euroleague

In: NBL, Misc — Monday, 23 May, 2022

THE exciting new East Asia Super League has aspirations to become the Pacific region's equivalent of the Euroleague and by luring former Illawarra Hawks NBL coach Brian Goorjian to coach the Bay Area Dragons, it already is off to a flyer.

Bob's Corner: Storming home, Seattle rolling

In: NBA, Misc — Saturday, 21 May, 2022

BOB'S CORNER: Our USA correspondent BOB CRAVEN is based in Seattle which is great news for Storm WNBA fans - hey, that's where the GOAT, Lauren J, dominated so who ISN'T a Storm fan? - and also for WNBL fans as a couple of our Opals Olympians reside there too, as this report ecapsulates.

Bob's Corner: Griner a Russian political tool

In: NBA, Misc — Saturday, 14 May, 2022

BOB'S CORNER: THE situation for imprisoned American WNBA star Brittney Griner has become a little clearer since this report from our US correspondent BOB CRAVEN, with a prisoner exchange now likely. But it remains unclear when or where this will occur. Here's Bob's update.

Bob's Corner: Griner being illegally detained in Russia

In: NBA, Misc — Sunday, 8 May, 2022

BOB'S CORNER: There's not a lot happening for WNBA superstar Brittney Griner, stuck in a Russian prison, but that is all about to change says our USA correspondent BOB CRAVEN. She now is on the US's official "wrongfully detained" list which means it is time to act, and the WNBA also is reminding the world of her plight.
