The NBL1 All-Stars Team will have a distinctly Tasmanian flavour when it takes to the floor for next month's NBL Blitz in Tasmania.

Tasmanians Lachlan Barker, a development player with the Sydney Kings last season, and North West Thunder youngster Reyne Smith will feature in the NBL1 All-Stars Team. Hobart Huskies import Zachary White has also been named.

The NBL1 All-Stars Team will be coached by Mark Chivers, who coached Hobart in NBL1 this season. North West Thunder coach Sam Armstrong and Frankston Blues coach Andrew Harms will be his assistants.

The team includes former NBL players Barker, Adam Doyle and Igor Hadziomerovic, alongside star NBL1 imports Dain Swetalla, Damon Bozeman, Demarcus Gatlin, Deonte Burton and Najeal Young.

Something like this has a lot of factors to it to succeed, but my lord, what a difference the NBL is these days where it can be part of a greater precinct rejuvenation.

I know the precinct would be largely an LK commercial interest, but the two (NBL and LK's commercial interest) go hand-in-hand in this particular instance.

I love this strong business mentality, ambitions backed by real investment and hopefully a head a sustainable business model that offers stakeholders an attractive investment proposition.

Looks like there are less than 10 tickets available to each of the first two nights of this, based on some ticket searches.

Solid start, albeit at venues that only hold around 1200.

Might be an idea to have a true selection for the NBL1 team, rather than players NOMINATE themselves to be embarrassed like this. The NBL1 have decided to have other competitions on at the same time. This is embarrassing.
I don't think the Bullets are that good either!

Great to see the All-Stars showcasing Basketball Victoria's flagship NBL1.

Don't worry BV, your league wouldn't benefit from having greater access for interstate teams, such as Mt Gambier, and making it a genuine national second tier comp. Get some more Vic Metro mobs in there.

Good games big gap in between NBL1 and NBL teams but fun to watch. Cairns v Adelaide was an entertaining game very close and fast paced. Both teams looked good for pre season Griffin looks good jawai looks fitter and Machado went well good signs for both teams this season.

Bring on melo,Rj,Terry and Didi

Those who play NBL1 but aren't on an NBL roster you would assume have to be worse than the lower NBL players otherwise they’d be in an NBL roster.

Only exceptions are:

1. Imports may be better then some NBL aussies, however not good enough to be considered amongst NBL import standard; or
2. A veteran player who doesn’t have a place because NBL looks for a younger development type player for the latter roster spots

1250 on a Thursday night in Ulverstone to watch 3 low drawing sides and an NBL1 team play pre-season ball. Fantastic.

Expecting them out the doors at Kingborough tonight for LaMelo.

A combination of a Forrestville and Mount Gambier side would have done better than the production last night from NBL1 All-Stars.

Don't hate on the NBL1 though. All their teams players are playing with NBL teams...

"All-Star Team" was the wrong word to use. Maybe "NBL1 Select Team" would have been more accurate. From the moment they picked the NBL1 team it was always going to be undersized and Brisbane feasted inside.

Please don't let that game build your perception of the competition at NBL1 level. Really hard to put together a good team when the best players are in the USA or on NBL rosters and they have a couple of sessions together.

Wildcats getting crunched on the boards, and that would be a worrying sign for them, particularly when you lose Brandt, Jervis and Hire - all good rebounders.

Majok grabbed an offensive rebound in the opening minute of the game, but they haven't grabbed another once since - and it's now halfway through the 3rd!!!

And it appears new centre Hunt can score but can't rebound!

Surely benson is gone. Apart from him and maybe Griffin(need to see more), all the imports have been great.

Next season, benches needed to get deeper though for a few teams. Hopefully more aus/nz talent come back too from overseas.

Numbers good for Tassie overall at the NBL Blitz; those who attended woudld realise that level of basketball and entertainment should be here here.

It was a step up on anything we have seen in Tassie, the standard was great and have my kid so happy to have given Ball 5, hassle me to get him a RJ Hampton top and watch top level Australians was great.

Even if it was pre season stuff and teams were not playing full teams it was great to watch.

The next step is for Tassie to step up to that level - we can

You would think the nbl would be reasonably pleased with those numbers. Ulverstone, Devonport certainly strongly a basketball solid area. Build a 5000 seater there and play a few games there and balance in Hobart.
