TOM Maher has shown again he is one of the greatest women's basketball coaches in the world, his trip to Rio with China marking his sixth straight Olympics.
*FLASHBACKS, my irregular "lucky dip" where I just reach into my drawers of old Australian basketball stuff and transcribe or post whatever I find for you.*
ON a day Australia’s stocks for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 rose appreciably, LeBron James’ decision to withdraw from the US team for Rio helped our current Boomers, too.
IT’S definitely NBA time in Australia, Basketball Without Borders underway in Melbourne, Delly mobbed in Cleveland and Ben Simmons to go at #1 in tomorrow’s draft.
THE name of London Olympian Aleks Maric is being linked to the Sydney Kings by sources but David Andersen now looks likely to have a further year in Europe.
THE first Australian National Pro Combine to expose wannabe NBL players to league coaches and scouts concluded today and only needs one more thing to become an annual event.
LeBRON James has led his Cavaliers to the Promised Land while also cementing his own legacy as the greatest player of this time and one of the best of all-time.
DANTE Exum’s withdrawal from the Boomers squad for Rio is not the “blow’ many would have you believe. Andrew Bogut being hurt is.
WE’VE become almost blasé about our Opals claiming medals at major international events such as FIBA World Championships and the Olympic Games, but Australia is in real danger ahead of Rio.
LeBRON James and his Cavaliers are now just one win from bringing the NBA Championship to Cleveland for that city’s first national title since its Browns wore the 1964 NFL crown.
IF Andrew Bogut is amenable toward going, and trusting Australian medical opinion and practice over that of the US, I’d punt and take him to Rio.
FIBA's decision to include Australian women's basketball pioneer and superstar Michele Timms into its 2016 Hall of Fame intake is basketball's best call since James Naismith cut the bottom out of the peach baskets.
DRAYMOND Green outed, Andrew Bogut injured and the Cavaliers send the NBA Finals to a sixth game back in Cleveland. It’s never over til it’s over.
AUSSIE Rules Football is a unique and great sport so why do TV commentators insist on peppering it with redundant basketball jargon?
THE Splash Brothers find their mojo, Draymond runs afoul of LeBron and NBA champion Golden State goes back home to Oracle Arena 3-1 up, a second title now looking a formality.
ANDREW Bogut is the fifth scoring option in Golden State’s offence so when the Cavs start with a 9-0 run and the big Aussie centre breaks the drought, something is wrong.
YOU know it already because it's been thrilling devotees all week but Streetball is in Australia and it hits Titanium Security Arena in Adelaide on Friday.
AUSSIE Andrew Bogut set an early tone as Golden State today dismantled Cleveland 110-77 to seize a 2-0 lead in the NBA's best-of-seven Finals.
BASKETBALL Australia already is calling its, as yet, unselected men's team for Rio "arguably its greatest team ever". Might that be a little premature exultation?
THE Opals have continued on their winning way through Europe, taking the choccies from Belgium 81-54 to add their scalp to Italy's in Pomezia.
