B&B: We're overdue for our first super-hero(ine)

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 1 Dec, 2022

SHE's a six-time MVP of the WNBL, a five-time league champion, seven-time All Star, four-time leading scorer and played at three Olympic Games for Australia's Opals, returning home a medallist from Athens, Beijing and London. But despite Brad Rosen willing it, Suzy Batkovic was not born in Sydney.

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Saturday, 26 Nov, 2022

FIBA's decision to induct former long-term Australian Opals captain Robyn Maher into its Hall of Fame in Switzerland this week marks a magnificent and unprecedented milestone. With Rob joining husband Tom in the Hall, FIBA now has its historic first wife-husband combination.

B&B: Boomers, Isaac, WNBL and more

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA — Friday, 18 Nov, 2022

BRAD Rosen and I have a couple of big interviews coming up next week but in the meantime, we couldn't let so many huge events of the past week go by unmentioned in our Brad&Boti podcast. It started with Josh Giddey and continued with Isaac Humphries, the Boomers and Tianna Hawkins.

Monday is fun-day as Josh matches Wilt

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA — Monday, 14 Nov, 2022

TRUST this. There are not going to be many times an Aussie baller matches an NBA record for decades now held by the incomparable - and in my view, maybe the true G.O.A.T. - Wilt Chamberlain. But one-and-done Adelaide 36er Josh Giddey can today make that claim.

Boomers sink Kazaks, forfeit to Iran

In: Boomers & Opals — Saturday, 12 Nov, 2022

FROM the moment Nick Kay sank a 3-pointer to open Australia’s scoring, there wasn’t any doubt which way this FIBA World Cup Qualifier on the road in Kazakhstan was going to go, the Boomers’ 97-50 final scoreline maybe still a fraction misleading. But only in terms it flattered the home team.

Pete's Bar is back! (But you better move fast!)

In: Boomers & Opals, Misc — Thursday, 10 Nov, 2022

THE return of the annual Pete's Bar lunch on Friday, November 25, after a two-year COVID-inflicted absence, should be an absolute ripper but you'll need to move quickly because bookings close tomorrow and the guest speaker will be none other than the G.O.A.T., Lauren Jackson.

B&B: Run towards pressure and expectations

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Wednesday, 2 Nov, 2022

THE most challenging gig in elite coaching? Inheriting a defending champion. And that is exactly what Chris Lucas is faced with as the new head coach of WNBL champion Melbourne Boomers, largely why Brad Rosen and I were keen to interview him for this week's Brad&Boti podcast.

Sydney rocked the World Cup

In: Boomers & Opals — Sunday, 30 Oct, 2022

THE Sydney Olympics in 2000 was hailed as the greatest Games ever staged and now FIBA - in the same week the WNBL prepares to launch is 2022-23 season - has declared its World Cup at the same venue as a record-smasher, with first crowd, now broadcast, digital and social media reaching unprecedented heights.

B&B: Balloons and coat-hangers for starters

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Friday, 28 Oct, 2022

TIME for a "Where Are They Now?" episode of the Brad&Boti podcast so Brad Rosen and I threw on our deer-stalker caps, grabbed our magnifying glasses and went in search of a former NBL import who rose to the position of running the league before joining BA. No, it's NOT Bill Palmer.

Boomers prepare for Borat and Co.

In: Boomers & Opals — Wednesday, 26 Oct, 2022

AUSTRALIA has named another solid mostly-NBL based Boomers team for next month's FIBA World Cup qualifier against burgeoning powerhouse Kazakhstan in Kazakhstan, a trip which should very much help our boys' cultural learnings.
