Earlier this year
Aussies wHooping it up in the NZNBL
Rhys Vague's had a couple of big games for the Nelson Giants, and I'm actually surprised at some of the names I see mentioned.
Nick Kay has already been mentioned here.
McCarron, Blanchfield, and Weeks are all playing for the Sharks, whilst Vague has been joined at the Giants by Grida and also Jett.
So first question, I thought Aussies were restricted in the NZNBL? (With special concession given to the Huskies)
Have those restrictions been relaxed?
Or are they simply allowed 3 "imports"? In which case I'm still surprised that they would take guys like Vague, Grida, and Weeks??
With the demise of the SEABL, Has the NZNBL become the off-season destination of choice?
Is Vague that good, or is the league just that poor?
