The server continually rejects my attempts to pay the $5 to get it to run, so I'd say there are definitely issues. The pq on Twitter is not worth watching.

Nothing says "The NBL is back" quite like live cuts to the baseline camera during live play!!

Wonder who thought it would be a good idea to have a team in dark blue play a team in black? Hard to tell who is who on the link above.

Who ever wrote the report on the hawks game must be in Melbourne, Naar had plus 23 and no mention, Cadee had minus 17 and he's going to be a great asset to Brisbane. It would be nice to get some balance reporting on the game and not just talking up name players.

Court too dark, video quality poor, commentators irritating. The NBL needs to look at the way the league is portrayed in these kinds of tournaments and consider whether it does us any favors. The Sydney Kings streams have been far superior.

NZ 88-84 Perth
NZ looked well drilled, Perth suffered from no Brandt on the boards. No Martin also hurt defensively, especially from the arc. White needs to hustle more defensively and on the boards or Perth will send his ar$e home.

Perth lost the game on the boards.
That was the only difference... plus Websters 4 or 5 three pointers in a row.

The twitter feed has been really great. I don't know what the ungrateful entitled complainers are on about.

The Twitter feed is really dark and looks to be in SD. It's certainly not a low-bitrate mess by any means, but it's not great. The feed to NBL TV is HD and much brighter.

Longs numbers looked good, he look like he's going to dominate?

Pretty disappointed with next to no peripheral stats for White.

So we have a Melbourne team wearing black and white with a great big M on their front and it's not SE Melbourne magic? And to make it worse we have a team from SE Melbourne coming next season. Ild be pissed if I was a tigers fan.

Impressive win over United that even if only a preseason game. I was surprised by the energy of De Leon and Wiley looks like a beast.

Wear is horrible. But then we already knew that.

If Wear can't finish this tournament avg at least 8ppg, its over for him as a King. The signing made zero sense when announced. The guys they have cut/not resigned over the past 2 years, Tyler, Ellis, Whittington, Powell, Leslie, even Blake, Wear is not as good as any of them. He's Michael Bryson bad.

All 3 Taipans imports look good, Jett & Wiley probably the best new imports I've seen. Didn't see the NZB game but Long put up good numbers.

I would've thought Wear or De Leon first cut but if Adris keeps bringing that energy he will be a nice piece.

Have seen all his games with Sydney, and save for the first month or two of 2016-17, Lisch has clearly lost his shot. Most of the misses don't even look close.

I'd hope to see Newley get back to starter minutes and Lisch spend longer periods on the bench.

Jett isn't a new import, he played for Townsville about 5 years ago.

All reports about Wiley have been positive, so that's a good sign. I feel like he will need to be MVP level for us to compete this year, so it's a good start.

HOw bad are the Taipans. Kings will win the game but they are terrible as well.
It's only preseason but sheeeesh the Kings should belt the Tapains by 30 + surely with the Million$ they are spending.

Adnam again unbelievable. Bowen amazing. Fortunately for the Kings, the bench was exceptional, and probably won it for them. Lisch 3 missed lay ups and shot 3 air balls - not even close.

If the Randle and Bogut screen doesn't work, offence looks lost - with no second, 3rd options.

Jeff Wrong Again is wrong again: Wear, at best, is worse than a local Australian player, not an import. The signing made no sense when they have cut/not resigned Ellis or Whittington.

Kings Barely scrapped through against a team without Jawai and Walker.

Ive seen plenty of Sydney so far this preseason, and they are yet to play a well rounded 4 quarters. The mix of the team is well off. Randle can play with just about anybody, and Newley looks great. Lisch continues his downward spiral, even if they still laud him as an MVP type.

I think another role playing center would be good either alongside Bogut or when he is in foul trouble, or injured. Illawarra and Cairns got some use out of Delvin Johnson, Michael Holyfield and Nnana Egwu. Sydney don't need a soft big man like Wear for that type of role.

I watched all games live, that cairns import Trimble was horrible. Adelaide looked good, Melbourne better hope Boone gets back quickly, Trist is a tryer but slow feet on defence. Kings will be very good as long as there bench don't have to defend a small lead.

I don't pay much attention to Blitz results, but individually, it's good to see big games from two guys who are tipped for big improvement in United vs Adelaide- Deng and Moller- Deng 16 and 7, Moller 15 and 5.

That was me.

And Wiley 12 points, 15 rebounds is the other stat line that jumps out.

Yes Deng and Moller looked very good. Only preseason but Melbourne will need Goulding and McCarron playing much better defence than shown today.

I don't even think that rebounding stat does Wiley justice. The guy is an athlete who was hustling for every rebound like it was a 1 point game. Perfect replacement for Creek

Wiley looked really solid, but I don't think he's going to be grabbing 15 rebounds if a guy like Boone is in the game. I'll be more than happy to be proven wrong though.

I'm really worried about Terrico's stat line...hoping they are telling him to take it easy so not to give away too much about his game.

Violet Crumbles:

Gaze can't coach
Lisch can't shoot (any more)
Kickert can't defend a chair
Wear can't play

Bogut - great player with knees held together by sticky tape

This team is balls
