BASKETBALL SA needs to extract the digit and either make its 2014 State Basketball League something truly worth contesting, "pull the pin" and return to the SEABL or have its clubs "demerge".
COME on now. "Fans" cannot already be seriously dismissing the chances of NBL teams on the basis of half-baked, half-lineup preseason games or "exceptional recruiting."
BUSY day today at the keyboard for my employer NewsLtd so bear with me blogofiles - tomorrow will be a brighter day.
ATTENDED my first Adelaide 36ers practice of the preseason today under the new regime of NBL championship-winning coach Joey Wright and came away impressed with the club's direction - up.
GARY Ervin is excited about the talent level in the 2013-14 NBL, whether we’re talking James Ennis or Stephen Dennis.
THE older I get, the more nostalgic I seem to become so today was a treat to see Julie Nykiel, Eddie Murtagh, Huba Nagy, Cass Pujals and Mike McKay once again.
THE NBL draw is out, the Opals suffer a blow, my brother gets his own line, and Ben Madgen shows again he is a special athlete and person – all in all, it was a pretty good day.

WOULD love to see the 10-man Boomers team – OK, Basketball Australia is calling it a “squad” – announced today playing a game or two.
THE best aspect of Brendan Joyce’s appointment as Opals coach is not the culture shift, enthusiasm, work ethic or his heart-on-the-sleeve, bleed green-and-gold approach – though, of course, that is mightily refreshing and upbeat.
IT will be interesting to see FIBA’s next set of international rankings in the wake of Australia’s stellar performance at the World University Games in Kazan, Russia.
WHAT is up with Adelaide Arena?
RATINGS for Friday's (Thursday night's) seventh game of the NBA Finals reached a level befitting the final game of a championship series.
DID you know BJ Anthony is not the first (I) New Zealander to be signed by the Adelaide 36ers?
THE biggest anomaly in SEABL imports automatically being rated as 10-point players under the NBL's Player Points System isn't reflected in the points but is blasted wide open by the salaries.
JESSICA Foley will be breathing rarified air when she becomes a doctor in four years' time.
IT IS entirely appropriate this is National Volunteer Week and Basketball Australia has jumped aboard, honoring the thousands who offer their time, skills and passion to help our great game prosper.
STUCK for something to do in Adelaide tomorrow night, then head down to Port Adelaide Stadium and watch Anthony Petrie make his SBL debut with North.
LOOKS like "The Powerhouse" is the winner of my less-than-scientific poll of potential new names for the Scouts SA-SA Church Basketball Association's home of the 36ers and Lightning.
