Lightning sparking the Storm

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals, SA — Monday, 7 Feb, 2022

ADELAIDE LIGHTNING captain Stephanie Talbot will be back for the Seattle Storm in 2022, the WNBA club keen to reassemble as much of its 2021 team as possible now it has retained Breanna Stewart who was being heavily courted by Sandy Brondello's New York Liberty.

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.

Bob's Corner: Danny's back, and over in Utah

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.

Reliving the WNBL, and now for Lightning!

MARK the date and don't delay! Tuesday is your last chance to buy tickets to the Free Throw Foundation's big pre-Christmas lunch at the Highway Hotel in Adelaide on Friday, December 10, featuring 40 years of WNBL history, a celebration of Adelaide Lightning's opening home game and a chance to buy my new basketball-based book!

The perfect stocking stuffer

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, SA, Misc — Friday, 26 Nov, 2021

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.

December 10 for a Lightning strike

In: WNBL, SA, Misc — Thursday, 25 Nov, 2021

THE history of the Adelaide Lightning with surprise guests, copies of my new book "A Type of Life" for sale, and news out of Basketball SA ... the Free Throw Foundation's pre-Christmas lunch on December 10 at the Highway Hotel is one not to be missed.

And yes, unfortunately we've stayed offline

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Tuesday, 23 Nov, 2021

APOLOGIES to regular readers and visitors here but as you will have noticed, your author has stayed out of commission for several weeks despite promising the website's imminent return. Sadly it's been the result of a series of back spasms that laid me out for several weeks and kept my chiropractor extremely busy.

Apologies for the temporary delay...

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Wednesday, 27 Oct, 2021

DEAR regulars, apologies for the recent lack of B.O.T.I. coverage but have had a lot on the old plate. One daughter's wedding and marriage, another one's birthday, the imminent release of my memoir. In the meantime, great basketball stuff has been piling up but back on deck now and will start clearing those same decks shortly!

My memoir 'A Type of Life' is six weeks away

In: SA, Misc — Sunday, 19 Sep, 2021

LAST year I dropped a couple of chapters of my forthcoming memoir "A Type of Life" into this website for your early perusal and I am beyond thrilled to report the full book will be released on November 1. It's as much the story of a migrant family, early basketball, life at a lively afternoon newspaper and some of the big crime stories of the day in SA.
