Only saw 1st half so far.
I'm done talking about DD- we all agree he isn’t quite the guy to lead United to glory.
But he’s not the only problem. Jackson is, as Mark Dickel said, not the player he was 3-4 years ago. Andersen doesn’t even look like the player he was in Rio 2 months ago. With Goulding missing, they just aren’t as stacked with talent as we thought, given that two of the supposed elite talents don’t look elite.
Also, give credit where it’s due. Cairns have a decent import trio, big Jawai in the paint who looks in better shape than last year, jack of all trades Wortho at forward, and Gliddon, a fundamentally sound shooting guard who will keep the scoreboard ticking over. And then a bunch of other guys who can all play a role. If they’re the worst team in the league as the bookies suggest, then it’s just more evidence of how strong the NBL is this season.
