36ers front & back page of the Advertiser
There are full page photos of BJ and Gibbo on the front and back page of today's advertiser and a 2 page spread in the first page of the sport section!
I can't remember seeing this much exposure for basketball in the Advertiser for decades.
The game is sold out & there has also been a fair amount of exposure on TV & radio this week (as you would hope there is!).
Have heard plenty of players being interviewed, but Gibbo comes across very well in the media and promotes the club and sport well. He is obviously a good leader on and off the court and is someone kids can look up to.
Plenty of people who are not generally interested in basketball are excited and talking about the game so Adelaide is pumping & raring to go.
Hopefully the 36ers win tonight and take it to game 3 so this continues for a while yet.
