Where are they now...and what are they doing?

Just wondering what has happened to some of the past NBL luminaries.
Darnell Mee
Rob Rose
Larry Abney
Scott Fisher
Conner Henry
Mick Hill
Brendan/Daniel Joyce
John Dorge
Steve Carfino

Be fair dinkum. No smart-aleck answers please!

Rob Rose works at and owns a restarant called VINE21 here in Townsville. They specialise in fine wines, i have a feeling he grows his own grapes too.

He was also the coach of the Townsville Heat ABA team.

Larry Abney has been playing over in Europe for the Eiffel Towers in the Dutch League. I think they just won the championship.

I think Fisher went back to the US after the Wildcats sacked him. Supposedly Carfino too went back to the US to do college basketball commentary after Fox Sports let him go and last I heard John Dorge was coaching in New Zealand.

Etc was last seen doing this and that, and had a few things going on in some place near his home town.

Nooo! I was staying a 5 minute walk away from Vine21 last week! Why didn't anyone tell me?

*breaks down sobbing*

He could have signed all my singlets... why... WHY?!?

Cruel irony be damned!

Darnell Mee has returned to the US with his family, getting into college coaching I think.

Ricky Grace is still a legend.

Speaking of the Cats of old, did Tiny Pinder ever make it out of Cell Block H?

Is James Crawford still slamming things Alabama style?

I assume Scott Fisher is still impersonating Tom Hanks at parties?
