The Greatest (NBL) Story Ever Told

In: NBL — Monday, 2 May, 2022

MAKE no mistake and have no illusions. The story of the Tasmania JackJumpers is one of the greatest Australian sporting stories ever told and certainly, unquestionably, the greatest NBL story ever told. It is the classic Cinderella tale and while we don't know if a fairytale finish is imminent, it already has the hallmarks of unparallelled greatness.

Kings on verge of final coronation

In: NBL — Sunday, 1 May, 2022

THE Sydney Kings will take some beating for the 2022 NBL crown after riding roughshod over a disappointing Illawarra Hawks team, coach Brian Goorjian calling the Game 1 semi final loss "embarrassing" before their Game 2 erasure led to rampant speculation he would be departing after two years at the helm.

THE NBL semi finals tipped off last night in Melbourne and continue tonight in Wollongong when Illawarra Hawks host Sydney Kings in Game 1 of that series.

Careful what you wish for - NBL Semis, Play-In Tourney

In: NBL — Thursday, 28 Apr, 2022

THE NBL's best-of-three semi finals tips off tonight with regular season champion Melbourne hosting Tasmania, a situation United helped to contrive by not putting their best foot forward in their last-round meeting, playing into the JackJumpers' (now achieved) goal of reaching the playoffs in their maiden season.

In: NBL — Wednesday, 27 Apr, 2022

PLAYMAKING import Jaylen Adams tonight became Sydney's fifth winner of the NBL's Most Valuable Player award and the club's third import to claim the honour, relegating the league's most consistent game-influencer, Perth's Bryce Cotton, to second place, Melbourne's Jo Lual-Acuil third.

In: NBL — Monday, 25 Apr, 2022

THEY were our NBL Team of the Week five times during the regular season - a record in itself. But after storming into the playoffs with a 17-11 record, Tasmania JackJumpers made it six of the best in Season 2021-22 by claiming the Round 21 accolade, bookmarking it with their Round 1 success.
