B&B: It's Norton for your security needs

WE have been intrigued all season about the pressures on Perth Wildcats playmaking guard Mitch Norton - you know, chasing the threepeat, stepping up for the retired Damian Martin, etcetera - so Brad Rosen and I grabbed him for this week's revealing Brad&Boti podcast.

And dang if we weren't thrilled at what the former Townsville guard gave us.

Insights on what goes into "Wildcats basketball" for a start but so much more.

How it all began, his relationship with Mike Kelly who, unfortunately for the podcast, is parting company with Cairns Taipans, effectively ruining our best rumour of the year, and an in-house look at how the Perth organisation operates and what makes it #1.

Damo is recognised as the NBL's finest defender and also as one of the Wildcats' (many) great leaders.

How is life as the man filling those shoes as the Wildcats move from Damo the Defender to Norton Security?

What are the similarities or differences between Norton's great coaches, from Paul Woolpert to Shawn Dennis to Rob Beveridge to Trevor Gleeson?

What does COVID-19 mean to today's NBL players?

Can you picture Trevor Gleeson as a backpacking hippie?

NO? OK. Well here's Norto as a youngster with his early idol Mike Kelly.

Not only do we get a clear insight into Mitch Norton the player but also the person as he lets us in on his opinions of many of the sport's most notable characters such as:

Bryce Cotton

Todd Blanchfield

Jesse Wagstaff

Nick Kay

And how soccer's loss was basketball's gain.

Passing along the legacy of Wildcats basketball and the club's history to the newer members of the squad also is an important part of the core of Perth's long-term success.

There's much to enjoy about what Mitch has to say and all you need do is click this link and you'll be there in a second.

Of course there's also still time for Brad and I to sneak in his Rosen Rattler and my Nagy Nasty so jump onto Spotify or Apple Podcasts if they're your preferred option.

Or just click the link and settle back for about a half hour of tuning out of the world's woes.
