Strongest Basketball State?

If Victoria are clearly number 1, who is number 2, 3, etc.

Criteria to be assessed:
1. Strength of Junior State Teams
2. Strength of Senior (ABA) Clubs
3. Depth of State League junior + senior comps.

Pretty meaningless question ...

Other than U14 Nationals where Clubs directly play each other and state nationals U16 - U20, why even bother to try and compare ?

And given that in senior competitions, players move all over the country, even more impossible to compare.

re: Strongest Basketball State?

Anon, 95% of players in ABA leagues are locals, only the highest paid players can move interstate, and even then it's only really on the back of an NBL contract.

If not just the state then how do the leagues match up?

SEABL is #1 and Victoria is the hub, but this is how i'd rank the other leagues.

2. Big V
3. QBL
4. Central
5. SBL
6. Waratah

This was considering not just the few strong teams each league has but also by comparing the 4th or 5th placed teams in each league and the bottom few teams in each.

I think it pretty hard to say... seeing you don't play league vs league at all...

Nice Spin off #389758

SEABL is certainly #1, but I would by QBL firmly at 2.

3. SBL
4. BigV
5. Central
6. Waratah

BigV has fallen a fair way in the last 5 years, and QBL and SBL have always been pretty good leagues.

Central is limited by the quality of players it can attract, and no dirspect at all to Curtley, but Waratah is rubbish.

Totally agree,
I would put the NWBU (tassie state league) above Waratah
I have coached in both. To the point i have brought players from Tassie to sydney for ABA and there walked out with how bad it is

pound for pound Tasmania a few years ago was the strongest per head.

but each state has its pros and cons

NSW players can't play D, but Vic are the most sound
