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

I think the NZ Suns Magic player you are referring to is Travis McIlroy

Apparently he has been looking to make a comeback?

curtin has lots of issues.
Cost the big one. Changerooms. Backboards. run off space, corporate space, access to bar etc etc.
... no surprises they ran away. redbacks did after 1 season!

1) Why would anyone want to be affiliated with BWA they are a joke
-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.

If so then it doesn't say much about the coaching stocks down at Lakeside.

Geez, how good is it to be able to just fly a coach in from overseas!!!! Some teams can't even afford a 2nd import.....

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.

The American assistant coach isn't being paid by lakeside and moved to perth at his own cost with his Aussie girlfriend.

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.
