From BA article posted today...re: Bogut

"The Australian team has been buoyed by the overnight arrival of newly-crowned NBA Championship-winner, Andrew Bogut who delayed his trip across the ditch to receive treatment on his back. Bogut moved freely during Tuesday's shoot-around, a welcome sight compared to Saturday night when the 30-year-old was clearly uncomfortable.

"He’s fine," Longley told media at the shoot-around. “He looks good this morning.” Asked if Bogut will make in on court, Longley didn’t hold back.

“I expect so, yes. I’d be very surprised if he didn’t.”"

Boomers look much better overall, but in testament to the Tall Blacks quality they are sticking around.

Bogut with some nice points in the post - surprising. Goulding is lapping up the opportunities he is getting and starting to look comfortable in the green and gold. Jawai with a bit of aggression there, is certainly improving. Mills and Delly are doing what they did in game 1. Offence is flowing better which is good to see.

Yes, Mills flopped but Bartlett did foul. It is a part of sport now. The referees cant see everything, and if the foul is there why not sell it? This is war here, not a gentlemanly game of croquet. I put it to you that Vukona isn't the most PC player on the court. Pretty close to Shawn Redhage. Flopping to sell real fouls is a smart thing to do.

Mills' flops are something else though. Vukona just weakens his body/allows to be manhandled to get the foul.

Mills physically contorts his body to go in one direction which is completely opposite to the way it should go.

Webster almost went full Kobe with his 24 attempts. too bad he couldn't repeat his effort from saturday, still an elite scorer.

It was good to see Boomers go inside more, but in the past two games they have had great difficulty getting their shooters in Broekhoff and Goulding good looks which is worrying as they inside points won't come that easy against any other team at Rio.

after Brock Motums stellar performance against Lithuania, he seems to have fallen out of favour, with Lemanis giving a lot more minutes to Bairstow.

Broekhoff is a very handy rebounder and defender.

Motum was poor against Vukona in the NBL and continued in the international game. He's better with different match-ups, but I wouldn't have him as an automatic Olympian just yet.

Having said that, Lemanis is big on continuity so he certainly has a foot in the door as the only mobile PF in the current squad.

"Does anyone else thinks it's weird that coach refers to the players by their full name when diagraming plays up?"

I felt that was weird too. It was like he was talking to an outsider, but he was talking to the actual players!?! When he started saying "Brad Newley" I racked my brains to see if there was another Brad on the team to which he might refer.

"Newley's hair is going to be a problem for this team going forward."

Yes there is something kind of weird about the guy. Seeing him in interviews and stuff, I don't know, he just seems like an odd guy. The hair has to go. Just get a hair cut suited to a normal human being, Newley.

"Motum was poor against Vukona in the NBL and continued in the international game. He's better with different match-ups, but I wouldn't have him as an automatic Olympian just yet.

Motum is good against flat footer or taller power forwards. Against Power Forwards of a similar level of mobility he struggles. Motum is 'fairly' mobile, but he is not as mobile as Vukona. Actually the stretches that Broekhoff played as PF looked better. Broekhoff has deceptive athleticism and can rebound and defend the post (just not necessarily score from the post).

As for Newley's performance, this must have been the first time in a long time where he has actually hit a three pointer (two actually!) It is surprising to see some offence from the guy after years of just "being there".

Goulding impressed me too. He is looking comfortable and he had a few moves to the basket.

To be fair, it would be an epic calamity if we didn't make it through - it has only happened a few times in our history.

Lemanis methods, rotations and plays have been puzzling in previous games but I couldn't fault anything really today. We looked about as well oiled as could be expected and people did seem to know their roles.

So, maybe Lemanis has been responsible for 2 good Boomers games? Tonight and vs Lithuania at the world cup

That looks pretty close, but if Jawai gets into good fitness, his physical attributes can't be overlooked. He will outbody every single person out of position in the Olympics. I feel like someone like maybe Bairstow could be in a fight with Jawai for that spot if he does get in his Galatasaray pre-injury form.

As for 1 of Goulding or Newley, another name that should be in the conversation is Blanchfield. It would be a dog fight between those three for a spot, and you would have to choose on team chemistry and current form.

The rest of the team is pretty much spot on.

Not too many PFs wait around in the low post anymore, it's a game of four-out and five-out.

Once mature, Simmons will fit one of the prototypes of modern international PFs like James, Diaw, Anthony, Vukona, Nocioni etc who can defend bigger guys but also have an all-court game.

Big bodied doesn't begin to describe Jawai. I can't imagine the kind of mountain he would be in person. There is competition for position in the post with the other Australians; Jawai just takes up so much room that if he is in form he will just plow down the defence. Jawai makes sense to me.

Baynes and bairstow are better shooters, can both play away from the basket, better ft shooters also.

Not sure whether Slice of Heaven is actually the NZ anthem.
Aus would be better served to swap one of the 45 coaching staff for an anthem singer that can sing.
Andersen was a different player than in the World Championships.
Goulding made some horrendous defensive decisions in both games.
I liked Gliddon's game, flawless.
Casey Franks had to look up during his interview.
Vukona needs a knighthood. Every game he performs and he never misses a game.
Abercrombie must be broken. He just doesn't do what he used to.

Fotu is already in Europe if I remember correctly. But yeah, aside from that failed box out on Bogut on the FT, he was much more impressive in game 2, if just in spurts.

Abercrombie started out real aggressive, not sure why he took his foot off the pedal. NZ could've used more of that, especially with Webster not hitting for large stretches.

The big problem for us is that we are weakest an the arguably the two most important spots in modern basketball: the wing and the four spot. We are going to struggle against elite teams if this Oceania series mindset prevails. The other problem is, without Exum, and if Simmons isn't ready, we don't have anyone who can attack the teeth of the defense off the dribble to cause defenses to collapse at the point of attack. Lemanis just doesn't get it: you have to be able to match up defensively against elite teams who can show you multiple looks, you need roster balance, and you need floor spacing. This isn't 1985.

We keep putting these teams together with too many tiny, unathletic PGs and too many immobile bigs. The wing spot is an easier fix for me: why the hell wasn't Todd Blanchfield on this squad as an option to see if he's ready? I don't see what guys like Gliddon, Gibson or Damian Martin (obv. injured but was selected) add when we need guys at other positions.

I think Simmons will be ready to go sooner than people think, HOWEVER, I think his shot is truly broken and despite being mobile, his ability to space the floor will be limited to face up drives and not jumpers.

Delly / Goulding
Mills / Exum
Broekhoff / Ingles / Newley
Baynes / Simmons / Motum
Bogut / Jawai

I really don't like starting (or playing) Baynes at that position but we don't have any other options as I don't think Simmons will be ready to start. We will (at least initially) see Baynes really start to play the four with the Pistons: Van Gundy has cited his ability to stretch the floor from midrange and I think he's going to get plenty of opportunity at that position so he might get comfortable there, even if he's not quick enough to switch onto smaller guys.

Jawai is always going to be out of shape but we have so many poor IQ guys in the backcourt that we really need him along with Bogut to run the offense when Delly is throwing his trademark bad signposted passes and Mills is just looking for his own shot.

If Exum is out I honestly would bring in Todd Blanchfield or another wing (although Lemanis almost certainly will replace him with a tiny, unathletic PG who can't shoot or finish at the rim, because if there's one thing Lemanis loves, it's tiny, unathletic PGs who can't shoot or finish at the rim).

Simmons will struggle against international size in the post, but as a 3 man he'll be fine - he's athletic, can handle the ball and shoot, and is a good passer.

If it were up to me re: Rio, I'd roll out a Delly-Ingles-Simmons backcourt, then Andersen-Bogut.

Mills, Exum(if available), Broekhoff, Goulding, Motum, Baynes. Last pick would depend on Exum's availability - either a guard (Newley), or another post player (Jawai).

Should be our olympic squad. If Exum is still not available then bring in Gibson. Also they could possibly drop Goulding and bring in Andersen.

Mick I agree with your comment about needing people who can attack off the dribble and cause defenses to break down. Apart from Exum and Simmons, there is not much else in the picture. If we don't address this we will live and die by the 3 ... again. Patty can create to some extent, but his game is more catch and shoot or drive and pull up long jumpers.

Surprised you excluded Andersen, I know his flaws are many, but he does offer some scoring off the bench. He certainly helps stretch the floor with his shooting. Last guy picked maybe

I don't know Blanchfield, I don't follow nbl, is that his game? what kind of player is he?

I think Jawai still has some x factor and is useful in certain game situations. If healthy, so he can run and catch better, he's my backup 5

Having watched simmons in these last two nbl practice game hit outs, he gets a spot, his development and prpgress in the next 12 months will be huge

Adams was casually in the country and has been for the past few weeks.

So frustrating..the dude is at home for weeks probably doing hearty 2 a days without medical staff etc.

But he can't play 2 games and a couple of training runs under professional supervised watch.
