Shane Heal NBL return?

Word is heal is looking to get back in shape and tack on the end of an NBL roster. Is there any chance, I'm hearing yes. Would still be lethal with his killer stroke.

What is wrong with people? Tom are you on a bender?? He was attempting to get in shape for some 3 on 3 comp paying decent $ in the USA. That's it though, he would be terrible at nbl leave now. I feel like a fool for even writing this, so tom not sure how you must feel!!!

No, he was just a washed up chucker when he last played in the NBL for the Blaze eight years ago and he only got given that then lifeline because of his old mate Brendan Joyce after Heal was punted by the Dragons.

Keep in mind Heal would turn 47 around the start of the season, not 37 in which you could say slim possibility but 47.

Looking at Shane lately he might get a spot in the NBL if it was the Nachos and Bacon League.

He would be a great fit in Adelaide. He has been known to order Chinese takeaway from the bench and provided the Randles return then they will have someone who specialises in food delivery at the game.

If only you all really knew he's been training with Jaron Johnson to get back in shape. NBL to release a statement shortly.

SHANE Heal knew nothing about Ice Cube's new basketball venture when he first received the call.

It was a 3-on-3 competition called 'BIG3’, created by the rapper, featuring the likes of Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups, Jason Williams, Charles Oakley, Clyde Drexler, and Rick Barry.

The organisers wanted to give Heal a shot, and, when he saw the players that were signed, he quickly agreed. But first, he wanted to make sure he was ready.


Yep I bet Ice Cube's peeps were chasing up Heal, gotta add some real starpower to this league.

However, when it comes to a teammate that the 46-year-old wouldn’t mind having, one name quickly came to mind.

"Stephen Jackson’s there. I played with Stephen Jackson at the Kings," Heal said.

“The last time I remember Stephen Jackson was him breaking his foot, and we were about to go on a road trip.

“He’d been cut because he was injured. He was needing some money, and I remember going to the ATM, driving to his place — he was in his lounge room; a dark room, watching videos — I ran the money in, gave him a hug, said ‘see ya later, mate’, and that was the last time I saw him in Australia.”

Heal joked that he’s hoping to get that money back from Jackson, ‘with interest’.


The cheek.

Hmmm



Heal and/or Matt Nielsen and/or Brett Brown and/or ASIC joked that he's / they’re hoping to get that money back from Jackson and/or Heal, 'with interest’.

Heal really has no self awareness. As if the 3x3 organisers called him... and then to make public a private loan. Then name drops a future NBA star who played a couple of games before getting injured in NBL as if they are right... owe and "he owes me money". This guy is unbelievable.

"as if they are tight" that meant to read.

S.Jackson played four games with the Kings, hardly tight or anything.

and LOL, nice one Very Old :)

Apparently Heal can't leave the country because his passport has being ceased by the courts due to his recent alleged fraud charges.

It's also the case with Rucker. He too had his passport ceased by the courts until his alleged fraud charges are decided on.

I laughed when I heard he was 'called'. Yeah, because Shane Heal still has an agent who is batting away offers lol.

Not surprised. No passport yet thinks he can play overseas against elite ex NBAers as a fatso chucker. His lack of self awareness is amazing.

I was taught that if you can't say something nice about some one say nothing at all, lot badder guys than Shane Heal out there, I just don't understand all the hate and negativity.

I always found Heal very approachable and willing
to have a chat.

There are many out there who are not approachable.
