Never met Vlad, but have heard of him - rebounding monster? And really Happy Days - so? Did he burn you at one of those clubs?

Plenty of blokes in Big V go from club to club in the lower divisions chasing coin!

He likes to be a BIG fish in a little pond. All about ego and the fact he burns relationships where ever he goes.

He's always stayed in the lower divisions, even when his team was promoted to div 1 a few years back he went and signed with a different div 2 team.

But this year will be different, in November there was an article and interview after signing with Western Port div 2, now 2 months later he's signed with Chelsea but in Div 1. He'll be up against much better bigs and import bigs now.

One of the best blokes you could meet off the court though.

Lol sorry you mentioned "Bigs" and Div 1......not a great deal of quality bigs in the Big V full Stop.

It is the land of the 6"6 Centre

From memory didn't Vlad actually swap teams mid season a couple of years ago?

There was a couple of quality bigs in Div 1 last year with the Anstey's and Anthony Labka plus some I have probably forgot.

Div 1 bigs (4's and 5's) of note last year...

Chris Anstey
Axel Dench
Marcus Timmons
Cameron Mitchell
Russ Permenter
Mike Spears
Anthony Labka
Chris Lynch

So Yes Div 1 is a perimeter players league but there are still some decent inside presence's. The word getting around there will be another 4 or 5 import bigs in Div 1 this year as the league grows and more money is spent.

With all due respect to those guys a number of them are well past thier best and a number never good enough to begin with.

That said the BIG V league as a whole is a small ball league.

Melbourne Boy is spot on, 6'6 was a very small centre in Div 1 last year. Not sure how that will change this year?

Your kidding if you think Vlad was sacked at WP. He had signed at Chelsea before they had any clue he had gone.

WP and Vlad himself announced he had signed at WP and there was media release.

So how does someone signed elsewhere when they are already 'signed' at their current club?

Vlad was sat down and told he was not a required player this season after a poor attitude at preseason sessions. Chelsea will take anyone so it was a perfect fit. Still, Interesting given all the times the Chelsea president has bagged Vlad.

Also put cranbourne and McKinnon on the list as he went through tryouts only to be told to bugger off. Good luck to him.

I must say I am genuinely grateful to all my fans and followers out there who went out of their busy day-to-day schedule and taken their time to write such wonderful comments and remarks on this thread regarding my previous and current basketball activities, and from all the places "hoomps.com.au", I am truly "NOT" worthy!

I just wish I knew “WHO” you were so I can pay the same respect to you, but since you are hiding behind “aliases” it's rather difficult.

So please keep the posts coming as am finding this extremely amusing about my comings and goings, about my sacking and “buggering” OFF’s, by 300 odd clubs I have played for.

I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!!!

Yours Faithfully

Funny Forum here talking about guys who actually played in the Highest League Australia has to offer then commenting on why he goes to lower divisions etc U cant be serious Fact is Aust Bball is Great for the content and thats not saying Much, as a former Baller worldwide i can attest Once uve been on a high scale level here in Australia then go down to lower divisions there isnt really that much more of a diff except age in player and some some experience, Take into consideration why a player goes down in lower divisions 1 time may not be able to commit to the time of an aba schedule practice in such 2 life maybe busy and just loves to keep in shape but at a minimal bcos of business life wife kids 3 you may know someone developing a team and they ask you to come in and help lower division or not to move up u gotta win right so maybe they call u to come help boost them up to move forward So basically for the people who have time to comment on people and why this or that start living a real life and if u aint making a real living at this game called bball and real money bcos wow minimum wage in nbl is what 50k aba 20k of course a player who's not able to get that minimum is going to go from team to team as most teams are unstable anyways and unable to bring guys back for a decent salary....

I came her to rip on Vlad too but it seems I was beaten to the punch. Yes the guy has played for lots of clubs. and yes he trash talks alot but cant back it up.. and yes, he cant fish for shit either, but thats what happens when your old I guess, maybe he's just forgotten he played for that many clubs? Maybe he just needs a hug and told, "we love you". So I for one am reaching out, Vlad, us keyboard warriors NEED you.. we WANT you.. and yes.. WE LOVE YOU! without terrible players like you wannabe's like us would have nothing to write about!

Have had the chance to play with him after a stint at a club. I didn't like the idea as much, though he did help out ALOT. Great bloke off the court, came to training and trained hard, helped the younger players. With that being said i do understand where everybody comes from. But if everyone stopped being such a girls doodle about things, it would be great.. Who wouldnt want some euro dude whinging in a high pitched voice all the time.. (Jokes mate ha ha)... When i was a benchy years back, i used to love watching him play as everyone would give him shit.. If there wasn't any people like mr tankov at a local club playing against the game would be pretty boring. What happened to the days where you'd go out on court, push and talk crap, as soon as it hits off the floor its all fine. Too many keyboard jockeys who haven't got the balls to say anything so they mouth off on here. Get a life. All the best mate!

Also have you ever thought that Vlad is victimised by clubs cos he has a 'reputation' and clubs just then think he is bad news and don't give things a chance to work out. Maybe if clubs can give him a fair go?

I must say fellas, you "trash talk" or better said "lack off" is very disappointing to say the least!!

Am 36 and if anyone of you little bitches wana have a game one-on-one and your game resembles your "trash", ill have no trouble taking you with my left hand, which I don't have!!!

So please, either bring something more creative to this forum or just put the hand back to where it was and reflect on your short comings!

Listen here Mr Headband man,

Your not one to talk of 'short comings!'
Vladamir Kettletof you are lucky to stay at one club for a whole season and yes maybe if you had a left hand you could play ball, because your right hand isn't doing much for you.

I wish you all the best on your next, 3 games tops, with Chelsea.

It's been a year at Chelsea so a move would be happening.

Good theory on Pakenham. Although he does already have that uniform in the collection, but he is on the second trip around the clubs.

At least the guy is playing basketball at that level at 36 years of age.

You should leave the computer/twitter/facebook etc for a while and get some fresh air and leave the bloke alone.
