NBL Countdown

What did everyone think of the debut episode?

I wasn't really a fan. Mostly just a drawn-out pregame show with some clips that have already been posted on social media.

They mentioned both the Roberts and Illawarra-Cairns controversies, but brushed past both of them in a single sentence each that gave no more information than what was readily available. All they said about the Illawarra-Cairns game was that Illawarra were insistent they didn't lose, which just made them sound like they were whinging for no reason.

If you were watching that as a casual fan, you'd come away with a lot of questions and absolutely no answers. Those are exactly the sorts of stories a show like this should be covering, rather than 'Andrew Gaze dunked once in 1993'.

I would have preferred some actual analysis such as how Illawarra lost the game what they could have done better down the stretch etc

Completely agree kr.

I was hoping for a studio show with talk about current topics and analysis of games.

It's been so long since NBL Wrap was on. Well over a decade ago since the last decent NBL TV panel show sucks balls.

Was Overtime any good? I didn't really follow the league that year.

Which season was Overtime kr? I can't recall it so that means it wasn't any good.

2010/11, the year One HD actually cared.
