Agree with all those players gazed, others to throw in mix are dan Jackson, Trueman, Leon Henry, Kerry Williams, Hinder, Lucas walker, bennie Lewis, Kevin white, Luke Martin.

All others are pretty good.

Cedar brothers would have to have a bench spot. Schensher a month ago would have been on there but he seems to be tidying it up a bit of late.

I wouldnt add Walker to that list. yes he is a bit unco sometimes, but he has some natural abilities that others only dream of, so can be usefull at times. otherwise i wouldnt argue anyone else on this list

Burston is a dud, but at least he rebounds, thats why i had him ahead of Allen. If he were 5 inches shorter he'd be about as good as an A grade domestic player.

Leon Henry is far from being the worst also. He does well in limited minutes.
Walkers biggest problem isn't his ability, it's that he's a giant douche with no self control.

Well said mystro, walker is athletic but he's arrogant and gets limited minutes for a reason.

He's close to 30yo, you'd think he had of matured by now...

Crosswell? You should read a little more 36reasons.

I'd have tovey as captain as he has the most court time and is currently a starter

I would add Zac Delany, however I am not 100% sure whether he is a development player or not.

He has been with the team 4 years, can he still be considered a DP?

Provided Delany is not a DP, mine would be :

@ the 1) Zac Delaney (I apologise to all PGs on Planet Earth for listing Zac a PG). Followed closely by Crosswell.

@ the 2) Everard Bartlett. What a shame Drew Williamson isn't in the league or this would have been an easy decision.

@ the 3) Benny Lewis. They guy can jump, the guy can attempt to jig like a Homey, thats about it on a basketball court.

@ the 4) Ben Allen.

@ the 5) Russell Hinder.

re: All NBL Worst Team

I think Tovey gets bagged out a lot.

Although I agree statistical output / minute he is probably the worst starter in the league and one of the worst overall.

However there are those who believe his value to the C@ts transcends stats.

I can see SOME of what he brings to the team BUT I eel his defensive and rebounding prowess is outweighed by the fact that the C@ts play 4 on 5 @ the offensive end as he is ZERO threat.

He HAS a role no doubt.

OVER RATED AUSSIES:
weigh, rush, lewis, tovey(captain), dann.
pero, tomlinson, danielj0yce, hinder and crosswell

Anon'278...the problem with your 'OVER RATED AUSSIES' list is that Weigh is the only one in that list that is 'rated'.

You can't over-rate Crosswell when he is rated as low as he is...

I would have thought Hurdle would be one of the better import finds in this league, especially if you believe the amount of money is is getting?

Tovey is very valuable defensively and on the boards. Not fashionable with many fans but essential. Hurdle and Hudson have both played their roles well this season.

I would have had Trueman in there at the start of the season but he has proven myself and many others wrong so far this season. Anyone saying Walker is still watching tapes from previous seasons.

Not too many true duds in an eight team league but Tomlinson, Williams, M Cedar, Vasiljevic and Allen stand out to me as the worst quintet.

2. Tyson Demos
3. Tommy Greer
4. Cam Tovey
5. Ben Allen

B1 Nathan Crosswell
B2 Michael Cedar
B3 Bennie Lewis
B4 Graham Dahn
B5 Matthew Burston

This list excludes development players, newer players to professional basketball and/or the league, and guys who get so few minutes they aren't worth the mention e.g. Nate Tomlinson, Pero Vasiljevic.

Leon Henry would do well with more minutes; Lucas Walker would have been my captain for this team last season, but has dramatically improved his game since then.

Brad Robbins would have been an All-Star on my 'dud list' had he not retired!

re: All NBL Worst Team

What's Nathan Crosswell done to deserve being on an All NBL Worst Team? Often this season the 36ers have done better on the court while he's out there than when he's been on the bench. Sure, he's no spring chicken and no one expects him to be averaging 20+ ppg. Doesn't make him a bad player though.

My first choice player would be Ben Allen, for obvious reasons. After that I can honestly say I'm not sure other than having Marty Clarke as coach and Radford as his assistant.
