Its a pity you need to visit another site to get those stats.

Agreed fellow anon. I'm also not sure how accurate/up to date the stats are on realgm. This is the first time I've used that site. For example I've just noticed that Damian Martin is listed as only attempting two 3 pointers this season, which I don't think is right (I seem to remember him hitting four in a single game). Was trying to work out why he's in the top 5 offensive ratings...

My mistake (regarding Damian Martin), he averages two 3 point attempts per game. I thought I was looking at a total but it was an average. He's actually 5/10 from the 3 point line this season...

A contender for sure.
At the very least he is having an All NBL season.
Can see why Perth only need two imports.

Norton & Kaye have been MASSIVE pick ups for Perth!!

It's why I had Perth on top in my ladder prediction, and I couldn't understand why so many people thought it odd. I wasn't being arrogant or boastful, but Perth made massive improvements to a team that still made the finals last year.
Still a lot of water to go under the bridge, and I'm not saying they finish on top, but that was the basis for my estimate.
Prior to Bogut coming home, Kay was probably the best local big man, and Norton is s starting quality PG.

Wow judging by those stats mentioned above Angus Brandt has had a very good start to the season too which gets a bit forgotten about due to injury.

Well done to Nick, obviously deserves everything he gets, as he's busted his arse to get anything.
