Dave Biwer would have to be right up there! But so would Shawn Redhage, Billy Ross.

Ron Nunnelly 85 points at 73% will get you the #1 slot
Willie Jenette pretty sure he has 1 year were he got 1000 points in 24 games
Eric Cooks
Eric Hayes
Andre Lafleur
Steve De Leveaga
Kevin Catron
David Johnson

Never got see DJ play but apparently he was a freak.Biwer a great player over many years as were Cooks and Hayes. Only saw video of Nunelly but he could flat out score.I wonder how many assists in those 86 points.....

The question was about the best imports. Not highest scoring or longest seving.
The two best are proven by the fact that they became stars at the next level.

Redhage.
Lafleur.

Maybe check the 30 year team of the decades that were announced last year by the league

Was very interesting to see that Ron Nunnelly wasn't even mentioned in the team of the 90's, not even an honourable mention!
The other thing I noticed was how the average points per game has slowly dropped off from then. In the 90's guys were always averaging in the 40's, now it's down to mid 20's.
Is this a sign of Australians getting better or American's getting worse???

Eric Cooks was by far the best import to ever come out of the SEABL.

He was so dominant in the 80's that he won two VBA MVPs. Back then the VBA was made up from 14 x SEABL clubs all with two imports, 4 x VBA Clubs with two imports and 5 x NBL Clubs each with two imports. Cooks dominated and embarrassed every import, every game.
His Miners team also won the VBA championship beating the Melbourne Tigers with their full team at Albert Park.

If Cooks hadve played NBL in his prime he would also be an MVP. When he finally got to the NBL at 35 he averaged a double double and played for four years.

I was fortunate to see Cooks in his prime and yes he was sublime at the SEABL level. Never understood why he didnt get an NBL shot before the Hawks gig

For mine there are others that could be mentioned in one and done years.

Jennette was dominate for years as an import and i think career averaged around 40 and 20.

The only time i got to see DJ play he had a dud and only got high 20's from memory

Nice to see a mention of Kelvin Henderson in the SEABL document too. Kelvin missed out on being a 36er because of the FIBA rules at the time despite being an Australian Citizen.

Panther, only 23 NBA teams in 1987, Heat, Magic, Timberwolves, Raptors, Grizzlies, Hornets & Bobcats didn't exist. So that is 105 more NBA slots available, so I think the answer to your question maybe that the level of Americans coming here now maybe worse than they were 25 years ago.
I know there is more Foreign NBA players now, but that generally has meant more spots in Europe for American players too.

Jamie Holmes was a gun. Would have had a nbl career if his knees didnt give up on him.
