Look out! Here comes the new Euroleague

In: NBL, Misc — Monday, 23 May, 2022

THE exciting new East Asia Super League has aspirations to become the Pacific region's equivalent of the Euroleague and by luring former Illawarra Hawks NBL coach Brian Goorjian to coach the Bay Area Dragons, it already is off to a flyer.

B&B: The GOAT on Bronze, Hawks, Dragons and more

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Friday, 20 May, 2022

BRAD Rosen and I had the GOAT of Australian basketball (if not pro sports) coaching, Brian Goorjian, as our interviewee on our Brad&Boti podcast well before the Tokyo Olympics. There's been two seasons with Illawarra in the NBL since, a Bronze Medal and now the region's "Euroleague" - the East Asian Super League.

Kings crowned as Tassie goes down fighting

In: NBL — Thursday, 12 May, 2022

IT happened last year when a valiant but injury-cruelled Perth Wildcats were swept by Melbourne United and again this season as Sydney last night claimed its fourth NBL championship in a sweep over Tasmania, winning Game 3 97-88. On neither occasion did it feel like a 3-0 rout, which says volumes for the losing clubs in both cases.

B&B: Kev on the Kings, Wildcats, Boomers and more

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA — Wednesday, 11 May, 2022

THE NBL Grand Final series heads into Game 3 tonight with the Kings leading the JackJumpers 2-0, an ideal time for Brad Rosen and I to snare Sydney assistant coach, championship-winner, dual league MVP and naturalised Boomers Olympian Kevin Lisch for our Brad&Boti podcast.

NBL does a 'WAP" as Chase escapes ... again

In: NBL — Tuesday, 10 May, 2022

LET'S be blunt. Kevin Lisch should be interim coach for Sydney in Game 3 of the NBL Grand Final Series against Tasmania on Wednesday after Kings coach Chase Buford again was found guilty of breaking the league's code of behaviour after kicking LED signage during Game 2 in Hobart. But the NBL is as weak as urine.

JackJumpers face a massive leap now

In: NBL — Monday, 9 May, 2022

DEJAN Vasiljevic's match-winning 3-pointer to give Sydney an unassailable 90-86 lead - and win - in Game 2 of the NBL Grand Final series now leaves the JackJumpers down 0-2 and facing a labourious uphill battle to even keep alive this best-of-five championship series. Frankly, it's now going to take a minor miracle.

Tasmania still needs three wins

In: NBL — Saturday, 7 May, 2022

SO what has changed? The Tasmania JackJumpers still need to win three games in the NBL Grand Final's best-of-seven series to claim the island's first championship since Launceston Casino City shocked the league in 1981. That was also exactly where the JJs stood BEFORE Game 1 against the Sydney Kings at Qudos Bank Arena.

Here we go, here we go, here we go

In: NBL — Friday, 6 May, 2022

THE NBL's 2022 best-of-five Grand Final Series tips off tonight in Sydney where the Kings host the Tasmania JackJumpers in Game 1, with the smart money on one J. Adams to claim the Larry Sengstock Medal as the championship series' Most Valuable Player.

B&B: We score the Overlord of the Insects!

In: NBL — Thursday, 5 May, 2022

THERE'S no question the Tasmania JackJumpers are the good news story of the week /month/year or maybe all-time for the NBL if not all pro sports in Oz! Brad Rosen and I reached out to David Bartlett - a.k.a. the Overlord of the Insects as the state's 43rd Premier - to bring us uptospeed on how this success has affected the island.

On the march! Ants ready to stand and deliver

In: NBL — Wednesday, 4 May, 2022

WHY not us? It is one of the catch-cries of this incredible Tasmania JackJumpers outfit which has stormed its way into the Grand Final Series against Sydney Kings in its debut NBL season. And while possibly everyone outside of Kings fans would love this Cinderella story to have a fairytale finish, it does have an X-factor.
