Father's Day! Give dad that book he craves!

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA — Thursday, 1 Sep, 2022

THERE'S still time but do not delay! Father's Day is upon us once again on Sunday but it's not too late to rush to your local bookstore and buy dad the one gift he was too bashful to officially request! We here at B.O.T.I. strongly recommend the purchase of one of two good books to show him how much you care.

Get in early for dad's big day

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Tuesday, 26 Jul, 2022

THE NBL may be busy with its draw for the 2022-23 season, open roof game on December 23, Christmas Eve matches and even a breakthrough Christmas Day (Night?) fixture. But coming up much faster is Father's Day and maybe this year it's time to start thinking early to find dad the ideal gift.

Taking a (short) break

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Misc — Friday, 15 Jul, 2022

JUST finished a terrific project for WILKINSON PUBLISHING so taking a few days off to recharge the batteries. Guessing you'll survive without the website's take on what should have been a Boomers' avalanche over Saudi Arabia. Looking forward to being back next week. Cheers all.

Joey's 'one-stop' 24-hour spot for ballers

In: NBL, WNBL, SA — Sunday, 19 Jun, 2022

FINALLY and at long last! Adelaide has its first and only 24-hour basketball training facility at SHOOT HQ in suburban Beverley, all courtesy of "the Coach" Joey Wright. As if his all-inclusive Transition Sports programs were not already enough, the NBL championship winner has branched even further out.

Boomers' legacy as Baltic giants pass on

In: Boomers & Opals, SA — Sunday, 5 Jun, 2022

SOUTH Australian basketball has lost four of its greats - three of its mightiest players of a bygone era and one of its most fabulous non-playing characters - in the past few months but their legacies live on, the game in the state heavily influenced by their presence and guidance over the long, long haul.

Lightning sparking the Storm

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals, SA — Monday, 7 Feb, 2022

ADELAIDE LIGHTNING captain Stephanie Talbot will be back for the Seattle Storm in 2022, the WNBA club keen to reassemble as much of its 2021 team as possible now it has retained Breanna Stewart who was being heavily courted by Sandy Brondello's New York Liberty.

Farewell to a giant who was never an "average Joe"

In: SA, Misc — Sunday, 19 Dec, 2021

JOE Clarke was a master on the basketball court, a wizard on the footy field and a champion in the boxing ring. As a leader in the vanguard of Aboriginal and Indigenous sportspeople capable of making their mark at the highest levels, his legacy sadly is somewhat underplayed.

Bob's Corner: Danny's back, and over in Utah

In: NBA, SA, Misc — Saturday, 18 Dec, 2021

BOB'S CORNER: Our US correspondent Bob Craven has been hard at work this week, compiling notable articles on Boston Celtics star Danny Aine, revisiting our own late, great Lorraine Eiler, the ravages of COVID-19 on US sports, timely anniversaries and so much more.

One of a kind, Lorraine may also have been the GOAT

In: Boomers & Opals, SA, Misc — Tuesday, 14 Dec, 2021

SHE was the first Australian - man or woman - to win a US college scholarship, instrumental in basketball for women becoming an actual "thing" in the 50s, helped create the national championship between states and was an original Opal before they even knew they were such gems. Lorraine Eiler passed away this week, one of the greatest identities in our sport's history.
