Illawarra v Adelaide Jan 10

Just when you thought it was safe to place a bet on a game. Illawarra square up against Adelaide. In "lucky Round 13".

Gee. Illawarra took out the Cockroach Cup with a fine win against top of the table Sydeney. Adelaide were all over New Zealand like a cheap suit one game, then after 5 days of binge watching Netflix in their hotel rooms, the Breakers broke the Sixers like a Russian bot breaking the internet. Shawn Long became "Wreck It Ralph"

Illawarra languishing around the bottom of the table have had Cairns shove a red hot poker up them with a win. I guess a late run by Cairns could see the bottom spot up for grabs. Adelaide are trying to hold 4th spot, but fourth spot is a slippery eel and there are 3 other teams trying to grab it too. It's like a schoolyard with four naughty boys trying to get the cricket bat to see who bats first.

But back to the game.... Illawarra would have to go in slight favourites but this is Round 13 and for those who are superstitious (hey, what sportsperson isn't...) it's a matter of making sure the favourite socks are put on in the right order and the pre-game tape mix is played at the correct time.

Adelaide have some work to do with this one. Illawarra are not a high scoring team, they work you down like a carpenter working on a lathe and this game style can affect a team like Adelaide who like to score.

Watch out for black cats crossing the road and for witches flying low this round. Both teams need this win and I'm not tipping this game as I have been the kiss of death the last few games.

r/Adelaide to get up. Hawks pretty much go win-loss-win at home so they're due for a stinker. They aren't a great side and will be out of playoff contention in a couple weeks as the Brisbanes and Adelaides start to warm up.

Same as in his final year at the Crocs, they got him running off and turning the corner or rising up on the wing. He's cash from there. Bevo needs to tell his guys to do it more. Blanchfield could be 20ppg in this team. He only shoots 11 times a game

In addition to ratings and crowds being down for BBL and A League, they are both outdoor sports. Outdoor sports always draw bigger crowds, it's cheaper to build and maintain outdoor venues on a per-seat basis.

In Australia, our climate is more suited to outdoor sports, especially in summer. The outdoor venues are now upgrading to include more shade areas for spectator comfort (think of the awesome looking sails over the GABBA, Carrrara, Adelaoval etc).

No, you dicks just complain on a forum about the foul count or ogilvy pointed the wrong way or Adelaide ran the clock down and didn’t let the Hawks have the last shot of the half etc etc.

Get a life you losers. It was a sick game to watch, high scoring with a few poster dunks and blocks with some car park threes yet you spuds talk about the FT count. Adelaide always shoot 30 foul shots cause they ram it down the other teams throats. This style doesn’t hold up in the finals but is still exciting to watch.

Conger doesn't get big numbers often this season. Adelaide’s style does allow for varying levels of contribution, with different players stepping up each game.

Conger would be on more money than Deleon, and more than a "3rd Import", but isn’t productive enough to be on star import money.

Whether he’s worth it will be determined by:
1. Adelaide making finals and him doing enough to help in that
2. Him stepping up in finals’ series to help win games
3. Increase in crowds/sponsorship etc.

For 1., Adelaide are definitely winning more now, but others are also performing better and finals are not guaranteed yet;
2. is dependent upon 1; and
3. we have no idea apart from crowds.

For sure, Udog, he had a good game. It's just that Conger plays losing basketball. I've been saying that for about 12 months now. Doesn't bode well for the Sixers that they still can't defend (Conger is a perpetrator here), notice Joey barking at him last night trying to get him to play zone properly.

California Dreaming, you understand that I dislike Perth more? Buzzas will beat Adelaide for that final playoff spot anyway. We'll chat then.

UseTa, it's a shame that they will have spent decent money on Conger (apparently they did), yet not make playoffs. It took three players (Sobey, Moore, Conger) to have extremely efficient, clutch and dominant games like they did for the Sixers to win by the margin they did. Sobey shoots that well maybe once a month.


Was DJ sulking last night, and if so, was it because he wasn't getting the ball/shots that he wanted?

Also what did the Sixers shoot for the game? 62% or so. Pretty incredible stuff really. Don’t see that too often.

You understand that I'm not that bad? I stir some shit but if you knew my personality from my history of posting on this site, you would understand that I just take the piss and there is no harm meant. A bit of a cockhead, larrikin, wanker. However I do know my stuff.

That's the issue with people who occasionally read this site and/or are bigoted. Unlike the real world where a person knows another's personality and reacts to things they say accordingly, on this forum you see textual messages in isolation and pair your own view of that person and their values onto what they say. You know how two different people irl will say the exact same thing, but it is interpreted two different ways?
That's because a person's personality provides context for the decoder. So an identical message could be understood two different ways simply because different people are saying it.

Anons used to stir me up and that's where a lot of the shit talk comes from. But I've recently understood that they're just cancer personified so I don't bother with them. I sympathise with Perthworld here too, because he is on the front foot when responding to people (chiefly anons) who trash him, so he is made to look like a cockhead even though he didn't start anything.

So your main takeaway from this should be that your perception of me may be flawed. There are psychological reasons why people pigeonhole others, so it's understandable that you do, nevertheless your assessment of my conduct on this forum needs a rethink. You may be smart and have enough emotional intelligence to reassess, or you may be bigoted and hate me because of your perception of me, or simply because I don't like the team you like

I thought Conger had a good game, was switched on and his was everywhere in defence. That pass from Sobey to Moore was something else splitting through 3 players. He also did a brilliant pass to DJ which went full length of the court which was centimetre perfect. Absolutely brilliant.

Hates a strong word Manu. Something a don't feel.

I was just pointing out the negative trend to yours and others posts. I’ve been on HoopsSA for nearly 15 years mate and have seen a lot of crew who just want to hate hate hate. (Ingles13)

And yes I do love the 36ers so you rub me the wrong way when you bag my shit lol.

'Hate on', not 'hate' is what I meant.

So you understand me? Nothing I say is malicious. I'm actually easy to get along with and know the game well, just know that I spout shit and the odd bit of substance

Buzzas to win tomorrow. If they lose I'll create a thread about what makes the Sixers championship threats and if they win, you need to hit us with some Bullet Train hashtag love or the like

That comment, Zodiac, is exactly what I'm talking about with people hating on me.

If you had half a brain you would realise what I am trying to do is stop people from making it all about me and dragging interactions into the mud. Have another read of #727226.

Think critically about what I said. For Christ sakes mate...

Jordair Jett has been driving to the basket and scoring at will over Wiley and DJ this season. Last night he powered his way in and ran into Froling who stood his ground, with arms straight up causing Jett to change his drive and shot. He got stopped twice. Jett became very hesitant in driving to the basket after this and even changed his mind once.

I choose to ignore Manu instead.
Not worthy of my time.

What's the bet Froling sticks around once his contract is up?

Perthworld didn't start anything? Um no, his whole shtick was to rile up an entire fanbase, and it worked. You can't do that sort of stuff for the LOLZ then complain when people react.

Froling will be able to leverage this into a decent overseas contract. I don't think he’ll stick around in NBL. Good luck to him.

Doesn't seem to have any qualms with playing away from home. Has no shortage of confidence either (good and bad thingl

OK...but then....

I want the Sixers to lose in a bloodbath. Mundine attends Hawks games doesn't he? Maybe he'll get knocked out again

An example of you 'knowing your stuff' includes describing the brief moments that Teys played on James Ennis as....

And to think it was just another Thursday game to review.
But no, we have deep thinkers explaining their life's internet view
to total strangers, they shouldn't care less about?
Let's see what happens after two matches tonight?
