I was also told I would never play a game of NBL.

In my case they were 100% spot on.

Conger is a hell of a player. I can see another NBL team offering him more than the Hawks can match next season.

Man, united need to get the act together. The fact they are letting nick kay do whatever he pleases is laughable and sad.

In defense of whoever said that to Kev White from the Kings, if the Hawks weren't a low budget team a 30 min drive down the highway they probably would've been spot on.

Conger will be at Perth next year, twice the $$ as Hawks can give, Tokoto back to the US or Europe.

Gotta give Bevo credit for doing so much with far less.

For example ppl give Cooke shit saying Perth need an upgrade, but he's probably better than Delvon at everything, Bevo just uses him more.

Strangley yes the NBL is not full of current NBA players. I can't put my finger on why. But it has had a good run with ex-NBA players and future NBA players.

Boo to the Sydney Kings head that told White he couldn't make it.

In a way I can't really blame him, I thought the same but congrats to Kevin for making it this far.

I watched a bunch of Felix footage back when the Cavs drafted him, I don't know who would have doubts about his athleticism because that was basically his only major strength coming out of college. Could jump out of the gym, but had an iffy shot.

I wouldn't say Kev has made it. Can’t shoot, can defend and is athletic as a potato. No one but he and his family will remember anything he has ever done on an NBL court

That's why the nbl is behind other major leagues. Even though it didn't have an effect on the game conger's shot at the buzzer where he was fouled was well after the buzzer. that's not the issue I don't mind the refs calling it that way on the court but for the 3 refs to go over and view the replay and still say that he shot it before the buzzer just doesn't make any sense. It was at 0.0 then he jumped up and released the ball a good 0.5 seconds after the buzzer. Are the refs incompetent or just not that bright?

The foul was whistled before the buzzer, the continuation of the shot was after the buzzer, clock should have stopped on the whistle which was .3

You can look at it this way... United coaching staff focused all their efforts on defence early in the season so they would be locked in on the most important end. With the amount of scoring talent they have, they were always going to figure it out. Maybe. But defence was the most important thing for this team

MU clearly breaking salary cap. Easily. Surely conflict of interest with LK running the league. As long as he does that it's a joke to the world.

No Norton hurt Hawks tonight, Martin can't keep punching above his class every game.

Also that corpse running around in the Ogilvy uniform hurt them too.

Such a waste of a big salary. Budget-conscious teams like the Hawks just can't afford their marquee players to be chumps like this. It's painful even as an opposition supporter.

There's no salary cap to break.

"Referees are FUMING. They had big plans to spend their Hawks bets tonight"

The refs whistled Melbourne for four fouls in the final 15 minutes, so hardly.

United doing a good Goorjian team impersonation at the moment. When refs whistle hand checks and arm bars correctly, like the first half last night, they struggle to defend.

When they can get away with that physicality on the ball handler they become an awesome defensive team.

Will be interesting to see how they go against Perth and NZ who space the floor well and move the ball, making it hard to play that way.

Goorjian's Magic/Titans teams struggled with Adelaide for the same reason, isolating the defenders makes it harder to ignore the contact.

Straight up, Prather ain't getting some of the boards that Felix ripped down last night. Not only a matter of being in position for them, but the athleticism to go over people and the mentality to go and get it at all costs. Prather doesn't have that in his rebounding game

Who do United let go in 3/4 weeks when Prather is back ?? Going to be a tough decision. United have not lost a game since he went down including the game he got injured, Barlow and Moller did great and now Felix is in and the winning continues.

Only 2 games in but Felix seems to compliment the team perfectly. I'd love to see Prather and Felix play together. But that'd mean Ware or Boone get axed and that obviously won't happen.
