Apologies for the temporary delay...

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Wednesday, 27 Oct, 2021

DEAR regulars, apologies for the recent lack of B.O.T.I. coverage but have had a lot on the old plate. One daughter's wedding and marriage, another one's birthday, the imminent release of my memoir.

In: SA, Misc — Sunday, 19 Sep, 2021

LAST year I dropped a couple of chapters of my forthcoming memoir "A Type of Life" into this website for your early perusal and I am beyond thrilled to report the full book will be released on November 1. It's as much the story of a migrant family, early basketball, life at a lively afternoon newspaper and some of the big crime stories of the day in SA.

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.

Ballin' is their callin': Book Review

In: Misc — Monday, 7 Jun, 2021

BOOK REVIEW: Entertaining, informative and just sufficiently irreverent but not to anyone's detriment, Huw Beynon's "Ballin' in Black: Our Tall Blacks Test Centurions" is a terrific new basketball tome from across the Tasman.

That's a wrap, 2020 in hindsight

In: NBL, WNBL, Misc — Tuesday, 5 Jan, 2021

BRAD Rosen took a break from his Christmas shopping to sit down for one last 2020 podcast with me, but it's taken a while to recover and post the thing, so forgive us for being dated. At least we're not quite ready for carbon-dating.
