BOB'S BOOST: Matisse, Ezi need no defending

In: Boomers & Opals, NBA — Thursday, 11 Jul, 2024

BOB'S BOOST: In reminding us that "defence wins games" our US correspondent BOB CRAVEN is actually somewhat despondent that great Aussie defenders Matisse Thybulle and Ezi Magbegor have been given short shrift lately in areas in which they excel.

Brad&Boti: Our Olympians, middling or medalling?

In: Boomers & Opals, NBA — Tuesday, 9 Jul, 2024

WE'RE back, former Kings NBL captain and Sydney multi-media maestro Brad Rosen and I are back with our Brad&Boti podcast talking Olympic Games and whether selectors had it right or wrong on their Boomers and Opals picks for Paris.

Giannis leads Greece in hellish Boomers pool

In: Boomers & Opals — Monday, 8 Jul, 2024

AUSTRALIA's latest international rival Slovenia may not have made the final cut for the 2024 Paris Olympics, but the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Greek team did qualify and for the very first time in the history of Boomers basketball, we can finally legitimately claim we are in the fabled "group of death".

Glory road ahead for Opals in Paris

In: Boomers & Opals — Sunday, 7 Jul, 2024

OPALS coach Sandy Brondello really must have tossed and turned in her New York home before signing off on the totally predictable, completely unsurprising, risk-free Australian team selection for the 2024 Paris Olympics. Anyone who claims "reputations did not count" wasn't paying attention.

Opals: Such bull in a China chop

In: Boomers & Opals — Saturday, 6 Jul, 2024

DISGRACEFUL. If last night's 91-63 rout of China by the Opals was anything to go by, the visitors should simply skip going to Paris altogether, instead revisiting Basketball Basics 101. Led by Amy Atwell's 17 points, Australia humiliated the world No.2 at John Cain Arena. China was embarrassing.

No Thybulle but 'delly-oops' revisited

In: Boomers & Opals — Friday, 5 Jul, 2024

WHAT was the point of Australia's "friendly" international against China last night? It certainly had zero to do with Paris Olympic selection because newspapers and media running with the final 12 for the Games this morning meant the team was determined before last night's irrelevant 91-58 win at John Cain Arena.

No 'I' in TEAM as new Hall of Fame shows

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Friday, 5 Jul, 2024

IT always has been a source of amazement and amusement to me that for a team sport such as basketball, our state and federal "Halls of Fame' consistently induct individuals and overlook teams. So congratulations to Basketball Australia for today inducting its historic first ever TEAM into its Hall of Fame.

Paris contenders show their best cracking China

In: Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 4 Jul, 2024

LOOKING, moving and playing as though she was a decade younger, 43-year-old Lauren Jackson and Opals Olympics hopefuls Izzy Borlase, Darcee Garbin and Alice Kunek last night iced world No.2 China 94-66 to strongly push their cases for Paris Games selection.

Jacques McVeigh - Oo La La

In: Boomers & Opals — Wednesday, 3 Jul, 2024

IF Tasmania JackJumpers' NBL championship-winning forward Jack McVeigh last night failed to book a ticket on the Australian men's team for the Paris Olympic Games, there needs to be a Royal Commission into why not? The exciting small forward produced 13 sizzling minutes and 24 points as the Boomers blitzed China 107-87.
