Were the Wildcats smart in declining the NBA?
IMO yes. Looks like it has paid off. A strong win and start to the season while the teams that were the beneficiaries of Perth declining might not be as well off as they thought if the Sydney game is anything to go by. Haven't seen much promo around the nbl vs NBA so not that good from a marketing perspective either.
Overall good move and great foresight by the wildcats.
