Earlier this year
Is the 2016/17 NBL season the best so far?
I've been a fan of the NBL since the early 90's and I can't remember a season quite like this one. For a long time the NBL has sought parity in the league and I think it's pretty damn close.
As a one eyed cats fan I really wouldn't be too cut if they didn't make the finals, there has been so many close and entertaining games in 2016/17.
The return of quality players that have been playing overseas of the likes of Andersen and Newley, the addition of NBL newcomers Bairstow, McCaron and a import class of Ware, Randle, Cotton, Boone, Powell, Mitchell and Dillon has just made the NBL a dream to watch.
Big crowds in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth (Most teams actually).
NBL Live while has had some problems has been pretty much flawless for myself.
I'm loving the NBL this year.
