Bob's Corner: Was there a Dream Team before 1992?

In: NBA — Saturday, 21 Aug, 2021

BOB'S CORNER: US correspondent Bob Craven is back, providing a further insight into the rift between the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers and Ben Simmons, before taking us back in time to the American Olympic team many consider was the "original" USA Dream Team. And that was right back in Rome in 1960.

B&B: CG43 adds a maiden medal to the resume

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 17 Aug, 2021

UNLESS you're a Melbourne United fan and you've loved him for years, dual-Olympian and now Bronze Medal winner Chris Goulding can be a polarising yet compelling character. But as Brad Rosen and I found for our Brad&Boti podcast, winning the Rose Gold in Tokyo hit the spot for CG43 as it did for every Aussie basketball fan.

B&B: Reliving Bronze with the great Danny Morseu

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals, Misc — Sunday, 15 Aug, 2021

THE Boomers' Bronze Medal success at the Tokyo Olympics and Patty Mills' performance moved us all, not the least of which his uncle, dual-Olympic basketballer Danny Morseu. Who better for Brad Rosen and I to talk with at our Brad&Boti podcast than the great man himself, his links including our original indigenous Olympian Michael Ahmatt.

Opals: Writing was on the wall

In: Boomers & Opals — Friday, 13 Aug, 2021

NO-ONE should fault the effort of the Opals at the Tokyo Olympic Games. They gave what they had. The problem is they didn't have very much, a 1-3 win-loss ratio just about as bad as it gets but worse is the fact this steady demise/decline has been staring Basketball Australia in the face.

Boomers: Idle BA must cash in now!

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA — Thursday, 12 Aug, 2021

BASKETBALL Australia needs to move like greased lightning to cash in on the national pride the Boomers have captured and seize full advantage of the small window of their Olympic Bronze popularity. Give it another week or two and Patty Mills and the team's exploits will be forgotten.

PATTY Mills turns 33 today, the human embodiment of all that is good in the world, of love and inclusiveness, of compassion and understanding, of tolerance and playfulness, of commitment and forgiveness, of ascending and achieving.

Boomers: Careful what you wish for

In: Boomers & Opals — Friday, 6 Aug, 2021

"YEAH, I think we'd rather play Slovenia for the Bronze than France, don't you?" That was the common refrain yesterday before that sensational finish to their semi final, leading to the cautionary "careful what you wish for" reaction.
