Adelaide 36ers win 2016-17 Minor Premiership
The commentators after the Cairns win said Adelaide have now wrapped it up. Amazing on so many fronts:
- They didn't appear to have the talent levels of other teams, instead investing on younger, developing stars;
- They got off to a poor start and were looking like missing the play-offs and being disjointed after a home thrashing by Brisbane;
- Not only have they won the minor premiership, they've done it with so many games to spare in what is one of the highest standard and closest NBL seasons in recent memory!
Well done to the Sixers organisation and coach Wright. He must be the Coach of the Year.
Should they now start resting players?
