Kings v Breakers Oct 19
Top of the table Kings host the Breakers, who are yet to dust off their sneakers this NBL season. Kings are travelling nicely, but have not really been tested by the hottest of flame so far this season. Cairns and a jet lagged Adelaide are not what I would consider to be the toughest of opponents.
The Breakers would be chipper from news of the contract extension of Abercrombie. He's played 303 games and been at the club for 11 seasons. He is the Peter Pan of the NZ outfit, so that must make Bogut the Captain Hook and Corey Webster the crocodile.
Talking of which, this is Corey's 200th game tonight.
The Breakers look weaker than the Kings, but the Kings are the oldest team around. I could joke about them doing your mum, but the age gap is not Cougarish.... An old team brings experience, but with age comes the risk of injury and the longer the season goes on, the riskier they are.
But tonight, the Kings should dine on New Zealand venison as they zimmer frames gather rust on the sidelines.
