I'm sorry but that is just disgraceful from NZ. You can't play one quarter and expect to win.

Maybe a few of our TBs got a bit too carried away with the 'holiday' and forgot theyre here to do a job. Sheesh!

Embarrassing for Australia then as NZ went very close to beating us a few days ago. You possibly don't understand the difference in standards between leagues.

Don't know how Te Rangi ends up playing the most minutes (had 7 points, 5 TO's and 4 PFs).

Also sad to see some NZ players posting on IG an hour after the loss of them enjoying the games village.

"Stealing good players from other teams is their best hope since they are useless at developing their own"

While they may have been slightly more established, lots of players in recent years have still improved and developed while playing for the Wildcats.

Also NBL is a bit different to other leagues/sports when it comes to developing young players. With no draft and players moving around so much in the league, it's hard to justify investing too much time in very young players.

Goulding was from Perth as a development player.

Daniel Johnson, Jawai, Casey Prather, Alex Laughton, Stephen Weigh, Tom Jervis, has improved or developed when younger either through the Wildcats or WA associated leagues in which Wildcats do put alot of energy into.

Um why are some saying Boomers bumped for the Netball? Excuse me but the Netball side has far higher status than the Boomers and has achieved more.. If a survey was done, more in OZ would care about the Australian Netball side the Diamonds than the Boomers or the Opals...

And also so much for the haters calling Canada a Big V side

Yeah, exactly. I think the whole tournament was a waste of time for the Boomers. I appreciate that these guys want to compete for their country, and all the more power to them, but how can you celebrate smashing a bunch of really shit basketball teams? I actually think the Boomers under-performed a bit today and played down to their opposition but still won by 40. It might be good for the ego but it does nothing to prepare the team and program for the real competition we will face in a year's time. This particular Boomers team wouldn't have its way with the B and C teams of the European nations, and those are the countries we should be more interested in meeting up with.

ROFL
Same way anybody celebrates winning gold in the Comm Games.
Same way the USA team celebrates at the Olympics.
Same way we all celebrated the extra Golds in Moscow and LA.
Plus most of these guys wouldn't get a gig at the Olympics and Worlds, so this is a big deal for them.

Might as well say that they shouldn't celebrate an NBL championship barbecue its a shit league compared to the NBA.

Agree with ME that this tournament is a social outing for the Boomers. Australia gained nothing it was like A grade men playing D grade on Monday night.
In reality Canada sent a 3rd stream to play a 2nd stream Australisn outfit. Come Olympics maybe Kay may get a jersey. The rest are all great players but few will get a look in when our NBA players put their hands up.
