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.

In: NBA, Flashbacks — Sunday, 22 May, 2022

FLASHBACK: US correspondent BOB CRAVEN has delved into the NBA past for an exclusive feature on one of the league's early greats but now almost forgotten superstars, Bob Pettit.

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.

B&B: The GOAT on Bronze, Hawks, Dragons and more

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Friday, 20 May, 2022

BRAD Rosen and I had the GOAT of Australian basketball (if not pro sports) coaching, Brian Goorjian, as our interviewee on our Brad&Boti podcast well before the Tokyo Olympics. There's been two seasons with Illawarra in the NBL since, a Bronze Medal and now the region's "Euroleague" - the East Asian Super League.

WNBL in off-season overdrive, new owners, coaches

In: WNBL — Friday, 13 May, 2022

THE futures of multiple championship winners Adelaide Lightning and Bendigo Spirit appear assured with new ownerships at both clubs, several coaching changes afoot, but the downer of the off-season being the WNBL losing several marquee players ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

Kings crowned as Tassie goes down fighting

In: NBL — Thursday, 12 May, 2022

IT happened last year when a valiant but injury-cruelled Perth Wildcats were swept by Melbourne United and again this season as Sydney last night claimed its fourth NBL championship in a sweep over Tasmania, winning Game 3 97-88. On neither occasion did it feel like a 3-0 rout, which says volumes for the losing clubs in both cases.

B&B: Kev on the Kings, Wildcats, Boomers and more

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA — Wednesday, 11 May, 2022

THE NBL Grand Final series heads into Game 3 tonight with the Kings leading the JackJumpers 2-0, an ideal time for Brad Rosen and I to snare Sydney assistant coach, championship-winner, dual league MVP and naturalised Boomers Olympian Kevin Lisch for our Brad&Boti podcast.

NBL does a 'WAP" as Chase escapes ... again

In: NBL — Tuesday, 10 May, 2022

LET'S be blunt. Kevin Lisch should be interim coach for Sydney in Game 3 of the NBL Grand Final Series against Tasmania on Wednesday after Kings coach Chase Buford again was found guilty of breaking the league's code of behaviour after kicking LED signage during Game 2 in Hobart. But the NBL is as weak as urine.
