At $8 on Sportsbet it is hard to go past the Tall Blacks.

Whatever the line bet is for Australia (I assume it's still in the negatives), get on. We'll win this by double digits

LMFAO right now. Henare proving what we've all been saying about Lemanis. Can’t pick a balanced team or react to on court adjustments, no passion and so predictable. So wrong as an Aussie I am backing NZ but jus can’t being myself to supportthis team. LOL Goulding and Cadee. Even Norton better and he is a replacement. Meanwhile back in Australia DJ is sitting on the bench for Forestville with Simons as hs coach. What a waste and disgrace by BA. Thats it Lemanis bring back Cadee. Creeky made the right choice.

There he goes showing his true form and faking it to make it with that Academy award crap under Terangis arm. Loser ! Can't perform without all his mates and home court calls around him. No respect forthat rubbish like he did with Peach years ago and then some.

LOL NBL all stars. Let me start the list of many that are well above on that list than this mob. No 1. DJ only Aussie in the All star 5. Check out NBL stats. And population of NZ V Australia is vastly disproportionate so NZ punchinh well above their weight. And they too have talent like Adams to come amongst others. Performed well last olympics again with reference to population. Aussies should never be in that kind of grief. Cue commentators ignoring impact of Aussies other than Goulding to had a few favoured calls due to his well practiced and fine tuned acting skills. Exhibit A the under arm dance on Terangi. For who he is he has not performed as well as others in the team.

I would have thought DJ would make the All-NBL Boomers side.

Without Lisch's quarterbacking [to mix sports references], missing Creek to Europe and Hodgsons size - this isn't really a full strength All-NBL Boomers side anyway.

Looks like Creek isn't missing any quality basketball at this stage.

Froling
Distant chance I would think with Maker x 2,Bolden,Londale all better options at the 4 spot.
He's definitely a better shooter than all of them..
Defending the 4 spot will hurt him ,also quickness/agility none existent...
Who knows?
If this comm games side is any indication,anything is possible..

Yeah, the Boomers were absolute garbage last night. They look like a team who've never played together, which is concerning seeing as they';ve already played a few tournaments now with essentially the same team.

They looked like they were all too afraid to shoot, didn't want to stand out too much, and like they were too busy running a system as opposed to putting the ball in the fucking hole and stopping the other team from doing the same.

I knew the Boomers would win though. There wasn't a single second of the game that I thought otherwise. I knew as soon as any of our guys wake up it would be game over, and it was. We have too much talent to suck for that long and not have some sort of scoring burst against a team of that standard.

Having said that, I am concerned for the future of the Boomers under Lemanis. He has not had particularly good outcomes over the past 2 years. Only saving grace is how the boomers generally looked in Rio, and that is the only reason I hold out any hope for him getting it together.

We might've been in trouble last night if not for Nick Kay who's no doubt just bumped up his stock.

There should be some big changes to the squad over the next year.

Not likely to see these guys who are now 32y.o or older.

Lisch
Newley
Kickert
Anderson

New guys(possible non NBA) to get an opportunity

Landale
Adel
Cooks
Moneke
Others...

What outcomes in the last 2 years have been bad? They went undefeated to win the Asian Cup and they haven't lost in World Cup qualifiers, ridiculous statement.

"What outcomes in the last 2 years have been bad? They went undefeated to win the Asian Cup and they haven't lost in World Cup qualifiers, ridiculous statement."

He's been wooden spooner in the NBL both years. He picks unbalanced teams for NBL. And yeah, he's beaten teams we should smash, whoopty doo! As soon as we face an almost okay squad last night we looked an absolute mess.

I'm not a huge fan of Lemanis but the big difference is the vast majority of the Tall Blacks play and train together every day at the Breakers, the Boomers don't have that luxury.

Seperate boomers and bullets. As long as he succeeds with the boomers who gives a shut about the bullets. Again ridiculous. His international results have been outstanding. You can only beat the teams that take the court. Go home your drunk!
