Is Chris Anstey too controversial? Find out!

FOLLOWING on from the thought-provoking comments on our Brad&Boti podcast last week by SEM Phoenix coach Simon Mitchell about how multiple-NBL award-winner Chris Anstey does not receive the credit he is due for a stellar career, Brad Rosen and I talked to the man himself for his own view.

Has his notoriety and courage to call a spade a spade worked against him in terms of recognition for all he achieved as the blueprint for the new style of basketball big man?

I mean, when you hear Brad read through just a summary of his achievements, it is enough to knock you off your chair.

Three NBL championships and a trophy cabinet full of personal and individual accolades.

Time in the NBA with Dallas Mavericks and Chicago Bulls and being named MVP at the FIBA World Youth (U23) Championship where he led Australia to the Gold Medal, Chris' journey is exceptional and unique.

And it has no shortage of milestones either.

Brian Goorjian was fielding offers for him after taking his game to the next level, having recruited him to South East Melbourne Magic from deep in Melbourne Tigers' bench.

Fearless on the court during a career which took him not only to Olympics but also Russia, Chris is his usual candid self as we explore some of the memorable highs of his illustrious time as a breakout star of the hardwood.

And what does he think about basketball celebrities such as Mark Worthington?

Barry Barnes?

Andrew Gaze?

And a holy host of others. We even heard his views on the recent comments made by Sydney Kings coach Adam Forde.

Remember, this is a man who actually had a special plan for the night he played an NBA fixture against Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.
