Luc on Luc - at long last

In: Boomers & Opals, NBA — Tuesday, 30 Aug, 2022

LUC LONGLEY is a master storyteller - as anyone and everyone in the Australian men's program will attest. But what stories he has to tell too, as a teammate of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Co in the great Chicago Bulls' NBA dynasty. At long last, fans of the three-time NBA champion have the chance to hear those stories.

Southside signing LJ a 'circle of life' moment

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Wednesday, 24 Aug, 2022

THERE'S a wonderful "circle of life" moment today in Lauren Jackson's decision to return to the WNBL with Southside Flyers. When her mother Maree Jackson (nee Bennie) plied her trade in Melbourne, it was at the same destination - except at that time, Southside was still the Dandenong Rangers.

Thar's Gold in them thar hills

In: NBL — Tuesday, 23 Aug, 2022

THE Gold Coast's audacious bid for an NBL licence in 2024 is sure to attract the naysayers pointing to past failed sports franchises in the area, including our own Cougars/Rollers and Blaze. But if even the Mayor is pointing to substantial junior participation and growth, the NBL will listen.

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Monday, 22 Aug, 2022

THE NBL Blitz Pre-Season Tournament in Darwin is just around the corner and social media wants to debate whose was the biggest signing - Andrew Bogut for Sydney Kings a couple of years back, or Aron Baynes for Brisbane Bullets ahead of the 2022-23 season. My take? Who cares?

Bob's Corner: Look out for Bree and the MVP

In: Boomers & Opals, NBA — Saturday, 20 Aug, 2022

BOB'S CORNER: Our US and Seattle-based - though hardly Seattle-biased (ahem...) correspondent BOB CRAVEN, a former ACT import himself, is tipping the Storm's Breanna Stewart will win the WNBA's MVP award. But he IS basing that on some solid evidence.
