CAN’T speak for anyone else but I just had the most sound night’s sleep so far in 2016, so the Sino-Australia Challenge last night wasn’t all bad after all.
NEW Zealand was impressive with the manner in which it KO’d Melbourne out of the 2015-16 NBL Semi Finals but United now has snatched another star Breaker by signing forward Tai Wesley.
THE first day of May, songbirds are singing, it's the beginning, hip hip hooray. Oh. Apologies. Excuse me. Welcome to May 1, with our monthly 2001 NBL calendar revisit.
THE 36ers have scored their first major off-season NBL recruiting coup with coach Joey Wright helping to land the one man he has been wanting in Adelaide for three years.
EXPECT Melbourne United soon to confirm it has secured last season’s semi final nemesis Cedric Jackson and regained London Olympic swingman David Barlow for its 2016-17 NBL Championship assault.
LONDON Olympian David Barlow has a chance to re-establish himself next month as a member of the NBL’s All-Australian team for a three-match series against China’s national team.
MITCH Norton will join retained Rhys Martin in Illawarra’s backcourt next season, with his Townsville Crocodiles teammate and NBL Rookie of the Year Nick Kay also flying with the Hawks.
HAVEN'T had this verified yet but for us basketball junkies, it's a fun one regardless, positioning NBA forward and Canadian star Anthony Bennett in Kings' purple.
ONE of the big marquee names likely to return to the NBL in 2016-17 is European-based superstar centre David Andersen who appears United-bound, along with Nathan Jawai.
THE sudden extinction of the Crocodiles in Townsville could have been averted – and perhaps still could be – if someone was prepared to under-write the NBL battlers to the tune of $500,000.
YES it’s happening again isn’t it? Here we are in 2016 and once again the lessons of history are being ignored as agents and players with extremely short memories line up with their hands out for the big payday.
STFU (Sunday Topical Feature for U): Let’s be frank. It is near enough impossible for Julian Khazzouh to be inconspicuous at the best of times, let alone the worst.
SIMILAR to a great relationship about to go sour, Adam Gibson walked from the Adelaide 36ers at the perfect time to avoid any bitter taste.
THE NBL should announce its new operations manager tomorrow and then maybe it finally can confront the elephant in the room – the standard of the league’s officiating.
IT'S official. Versatile forward Anthony Petrie will not be adding to his 120 NBL games with the Adelaide 36ers despite initial assurances he would exercise his 2015-16 option.
ADELAIDE's 36ers have completed their four-game series against their Chinese sister-city Shandong with a 3-1 win after winning the decider 93-73 tonight.
IT'S April and that means it's time to revisit the NBL's 2001 nude calendar. Yes I know the month started a few days ago, but there were April Fool's gags and real stories to get through.
BRISBANE Bullets months ago made no secret of the fact free agents Adam Gibson, Chris Goulding, Rhys Martin, Brock Motum and Nathan Jawai were key names on their NBL shopping list.
LONDON Olympian Adam Gibson today shocked pundits – including this one – by signing with Townsville Crocodiles while Chris Goulding has quit United for the Sydney Kings.
IT may be April 1 but this is no April Fool's joke - well, not yet anyway - but the Sydney Kings tomorrow are expected to announce Australian basketball legend Andrew Gaze as their new NBL had coach.
