Joey Wright helped bring RJ Hampton to NBL

JONATHON Abrams' Bleacher Report article last week revealing Joey Wright's involvement in bringing RJ Hampton to the NBL, with LaMelo Ball following suit, caught a lot of people by surprise.

Conveniently portrayed as an "enemy of the state" in some quarters - and for "state", read "league" - it's a ridiculous position for Wright to occupy, given his love for players, for the game and for the league.

The 36ers' mentor definitely was a "behind-the-scenes" factor in Hampton ultimately joining NZ Breakers under the NBL's Next Stars program, which also saw another domino fall when Ball saw that and joined Illawarra Hawks.
