Bob's Corner: Gone but not forgotten

In: NBA, Misc — Sunday, 9 Jan, 2022

THE year 2021 wasn't too thrilling for many but it would be remiss to watch it pass into obscurity without some measure of Memorium. Fortunately our USA correspondent and former import, big BOB CRAVEN, is always at the ready and was moved to give us an update on who we lost.

Bob's Corner: Happy New Year

In: NBA, Misc — Saturday, 1 Jan, 2022

BOB'S CORNER: Our USA correspondent and former ACT import Bob Craven is back to farewell 2021 and launch us into 2022, bearing in mind the spectre of COVID is forever hovering. But in good news, the NCAA has confirmed "March Madness" will be happening regardless. Oh, and Kyrie Irving is due back.

Farewell to a giant who was never an "average Joe"

In: SA, Misc — Sunday, 19 Dec, 2021

JOE Clarke was a master on the basketball court, a wizard on the footy field and a champion in the boxing ring. As a leader in the vanguard of Aboriginal and Indigenous sportspeople capable of making their mark at the highest levels, his legacy sadly is somewhat underplayed.

In: NBA, SA, Misc — Saturday, 18 Dec, 2021

BOB'S CORNER: Our US correspondent Bob Craven has been hard at work this week, compiling notable articles on Boston Celtics star Danny Aine, revisiting our own late, great Lorraine Eiler, the ravages of COVID-19 on US sports, timely anniversaries and so much more.

One of a kind, Lorraine may also have been the GOAT

In: Boomers & Opals, SA, Misc — Tuesday, 14 Dec, 2021

SHE was the first Australian - man or woman - to win a US college scholarship, instrumental in basketball for women becoming an actual "thing" in the 50s, helped create the national championship between states and was an original Opal before they even knew they were such gems. Lorraine Eiler passed away this week, one of the greatest identities in our sport's history.

THANK Naismith for our US correspondent BOB CRAVEN, who kept sending his popular column for publication during my recent back spasm cataclysm. He's on holidays now but here's another anniversary update I found in my B.O.T.I. Inbox. And once again, Bob has spread his wings beyond the boundaries of a basketball court.

THANK you very much from the bottom of my heart to the people already purchasing copies of my basketball-based memoir "A Type of Life" which, I am reliably informed, has been flying off the shelves at Dymocks.
