Player (Wildcat) of the Decade???

So somebody at the cats has lost the plot. They have been running a "Wildcat of the Decade" poll/contest.

Even notwithstanding the issue of the decade not ending till the end of next year, what a pointless exercise.

I'd be very interested to see whom fans of other teams would vote for their teams, and the Whole-NBL debate would be an interesting one.

But if you ask Cat fans there is only ever going to be one result. Not even close. Damo will outpoll every other player combined. ROFL

Purely for the object of starting discussion, I will make the following suggestions:

Adelaide: Daniel Johnson
Brisbane: n/a
Cairns: Alex Loughton
Illawarra: Oscar Forman
Melbourne: Chris Goulding
Breakers: Mika Vukona
Perth: Damian Martin
Sydney: Ben Madgen

All NBL: Kevin Lisch

sigh...
a decade is any period of 10 years, so in one sense it can be amost anything you choose. If you want to refer to "the decade ending 31-12-2019" that is a valid use of the term.
You could even have "the decade ending at the conclusion of the 2018-19 NBL season.
However, if referring to simply "THE Decade", that implies a fixed and unique meaning."
So let me ask you this, what was the first Decade in the AD epoch?

Here's a thing that IMO sucks and is dumb so I will start a thread about it and also expand it to a bunch of other teams.
FWIW, I'd vote Damo without hesitation, and ending an NBL decade with the 2019/20 season makes plenty of sense to me.

Surely Cats fans would go with Dunigan?

Sixers fans with Diamon Simpson?

a decade of seasons would be either 2009/10 to 2018/19 or 2010/11 to 2019/20. The cats won 5 championships in this decade. 2020 champs would be the first of the new decade

Is there something wrong with the water in Perf? You've got all these guys like Kober, Luuuuuc, and PerfWerld, who only ever post to demonstrate what dicks they can be.
My 2 cents, for Adelaide I agree with Dazz's suggestion: Daniel Johnson, narrowly ahead of Mitch Creek.

A poll to discuss the Wildcat team of the decade, at the logical end of an actual decade (2009/10 - 2019/20), a decade that is without doubt the most successful in their history (on and off the court).

A decade, that perhaps only NZ could rival in terms of achievement.

And your questioning the point of it? Apart from the simple fact that fans like this type of engagement and its great to see the club reflect on a proud decade, its also interesting and gives an opportunity (or excuse) to look back at past players and their highlights... yeah real pointless.

Special shout out to the West Sydney Razorbacks for folding and providing us with a nice base.

Breakers team:

Wilkinson
Vukona
Abercrombie
Webster
Jackson

Based on a Twitter poll run by Andrew Price, the discussion for best NBL player this decade would be between Cedric Jackson, Damian Martin and Kevin Lisch (Vukona/DJ/Cotton would be outsiders in that contest)

Throw in Ben Thompson and Matt Shanahan if we're going down that route.

I remember Martin winning that Finals MVP. Never seen a player so embarrassed. 6 points a game. Only if you believe heart is more important than talent. Classic NBL when they were handing out MVPs to the likes of Elbows and Rotten Clark. Mind you, NBA gave Iguodala the Finals MVP in 2015, and that was honestly probably worse.

He wasn't embarrassed. He was humbled. He also held CJ Jackson scoreless in the final game, I'd say that is worthy of recognition.

Should have given the MVP to Corey Webster for shooting his team out of it - Perth's most valuable player for sure!

They still haven't retired #42 so I'm betting neither.

"He wasn't embarrassed. He was humbled. He also held Jackson scoreless in the final game, I'd say that is worthy of recognition."

It was an interesting call. Jackson had won two GF MVPs leading into that (and averaged 15p & 10a in his first GF but missed out to CJ!) and had been the one guard Martin's defence had not been able to really impact.

Ced smoked him in G2, going within a whisker of a triple double and being the game winner. Then in G3 Damo completely shut him down and was the most impactful player on the court.

Both PGs were really good in G1, so in a series marred by the NBL's official whistle supplier running out of stock and a horror travel schedule, Damo got the vote as a standout in Perth's two wins.
