Kestleman spoke with the press today. The Mercury will have that coverage and the tv news tonight.

All of this constant rubbish in Hobart just drives the sport further and further into the ground. All the talk of pathways means nothing when no actual pathways exsist. All the talk of making Basketball the most popular sport in Tasmania is rubbish! Its all about egos, nobody actually cares about the foundations of the sport, they just want a Tasmanian team, full of people who are not Tasmanian playing in the national league.

So does this recent activity fly in the face of the Huskies trying to take on DEC or is this in partnership?

"So does this recent activity fly in the face of the Huskies trying to take on DEC or is this in partnership?"

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

On the one hand, yes, Hickey's attempt to get the DEC and leverage that is clearly dead, but with Kestleman's involvement I'd say chances of an NBL team just went from 5% to 95%.

Now Kestleman MIGHT do what he did in Brisbane, establish a league funded team then look to onsell it later.
Or he might accept an outside bid to establish the team using the facilities he's built.
And that could conceivably be the Huskies.

I guess it depends on whether he believes he can do business with Hickey, and whether he likes the Huskies model.

So if we get another white knight like we did with the Phoenix, could that lead to a team situated there?

How many more white knights could we possibly get with the additional exposure
