Why isn't Willetton just playing at Cockburn or Lakeside this year? Not sure why Curtin was even an option. Strange.

Great to see Vinnie Zollo back in the league!

If he can scrub together 6 seasons for 4 different teams we can rank him in top 3 alongside Justin Eckardt and that Magic/Suns NZ player... Sorry name escapes me!

biggest deal breaker with curtain is lack of sufficient distance from baseline to the wall. It was never brought up when Redbacks played there a few years ago

-Access to competitions (SBL, WABL)
-Access to high performance pathways
-Access to government funding
-Access to insurance

I'd say its a pretty good idea, have you played basketball at other domestic leagues (Belmont, Lords, Loftus)... good luck. Back to your hole.

You would imagine they would be paying Daniels a fair amount, add an american assistant, 2 american imports, kyle armour, mike vigor, jarrad prue. cheque book is open

whilst this is a great starting 5 i dont know if this team is a real contender?

what bench do they have?
Mackenzie
is Vinci still there?

both have big games every now and then but havent proven to be consistent producers

Not sure how they go against teams like Rockingham, Wolves, Hawks

^^^ The advantage of having a church as your parent body - there's all manner of ways of funneling money to players, coaches etc etc

And also makes it easy to get around Basketball Australia's policy of only having two overseas personnel per team (usually your two imports) to encourage local coaches and local coaching development.

An understrength Flames team (No Hire, Robbins, Travers, C Beard, Ritchart or White) defeated an importless Mandurah tonight by 3 down in the 'Ham.

Was very impressed with 15yo PG that Trahair has... Looks to have a decent future. Godfrey, Pal & Lakeside / Willo product Frank Johnson the standouts for the Flames

From the lineups you described, sounds like it was well worth the $5 entry fee for a scratch match.

Now that M Vigor has represented Scotland internationally, does that make him a 'restricted' player these days or not seeing as how he isn't playing at his original SBL club this season??

The Scottish Basketball Federation is not actually FIBA-affiliated, so M.Vigor playing for Scotland "doesn't count" in regards to the Restricted Players rule.

If he played for the Great Britain national team, it would be a different story.

Hopefully the Giants can turn it around this year. The league is better when the Giants are good. Bowie will be great for them. Salmon and Malek look good.

the regional teams are notoriously bad, with Mandurah just awful, followed closely by Kal and Bunbury. Gero are long-time finals chockers. When the Giants were in their heyday (2004-2008), the league has great.

The giants just need some stability and a plan to develop some key locals. They have had a revolving door of coaches.

In recent years they have had
Dan Fisher
Michael Haney
Marcus Taylor
Lou Causer
Scott Rubery
Wayne Creek

Creek is in for his second stint but out of all the above he is really the only one who has had a strong plan for development. He is the right man for the job for where they are currently at

So what imports are going to cleared to play and suiting up on the weekend at the Blitz?

Or am I wasting my time heading to Warwick to watch a bunch of div 1 guys trying to out-do each other?

The mens teams that rock up can usually be categorized three ways...

1. Teams that take the weekend seriously.

2. Those who go half-arsed to protect players.

3. Teams that don't give a flying f%@k and will mainly player div1 players.

The two outer regional teams (Buccs and Giants) will play full strength teams as it's their only chance for a pre-season game. The Tigers have been pretty good over the past couple of years as well, and to a lesser extent the Flames and Redbacks.

Most of the other clubs are in that 'half-arsed' category. The Wolves clearly in the 'don't give a flying f%@k' group.
