NBL State of Origin

Was bored and with the news of an AFL State of Origin game thought I'd try to piece together state of origin teams for the NBL, was more difficult than I thought! Hopefully some can help me out by slotting some players in, but this is what I've come up with so far, hopefully I haven't got any wrong!

WA
PG: ?
SG: Daniel Grida
SF: Cam Gliddon
PF: Rhys Vague
C: Daniel Johnson

VIC
PG: Nathan Sobey
SG: Anthony Drmic
SF: Mitch Creek
PF: Dane Pineau
C: Andrew Bogut

NSW
PG: Damian Martin
SG: Jason Cadee
SF: ?
PF: Nick Kay
C: Nate Jawai

SA
PG: ?
SG: ?
SF: Brad Newley
PF: ?
C: ?

QLD
PG: Mitch Norton
SG: Clint Steindl
SF: Todd Blanchfield
PF: Will Magnay

Teys Qld.
Andersen Vic
Dech for WA?
Froling brothers Qld.
Barlow Vic
Wani Swaka WA
Travers WA
Madgen SA? Many of these guys I mentioned would be bench players except possibly Dech or Madgen.

These teams would look better if NBA, NCAA and Europe guys were included.

SA could lure Schenscher out of retirement.

What surprised me the most was the lack of WA and SA guys around. Might be better to combine some states to round out full rosters, or make 4 teams? NSW, VIC, QLD and All-Stars

Are we going with where they are born ? Cause the 'real' State of origin is based on where you played first senior game. Eg Mitch McCarron would be a Qld player.

I always though it was where you were born?

Isn't Jawai from FN QLD ? Above Cairns there ?
As mentioned, with NBA guys, would be a great little competition.

I did think that, but Wiki said Sydney. :/

SA is a wasteland right now - no rotation players beyond Madgen and Newley? I wonder if that concerns Basketball SA much? Is there anything solid on the horizon - AIS or college?

It's kind of embarrassing that Tasmania has more NBL players than SA does...

SA might have to naturalise B. Teys...

Maybe if a player has played their entire career for that club that naturalises them to that state? So Teys for SA, Wagstaff to WA.

Rugby league state of origin used to be where you played first senior game....then they changed it to allow for 'variables'. https://www.nrl.com/SysSiteAssets/documents/state-of-origin-eligibility-rules.pdf

Pass, too hard.

It is difficult to name unless there is a set of rules in place like in rugby league.

Having said that, once the rules are in place this is one tournament I would love to see! Much more enticing to watch than an All Star Game!

Add in recently retired NBL players, best of the NBL1 and State League players and you would have full teams easily.

How would they know? People in that state tend to misspell his name, and then afterwards the Sixers would demand money from the Jazz.

Majok Deng also from SA, play him as a small "stretch" 4. You could also add Alex Mudronja and Mike Harris

Jawai is QLD

Ppl focus too much on where someone is born. Where your raised is what's relevant.

Only way Queensland can get over, stealing guys from south of the border or overseas.

Didn't Newley play juniors in Vic. Given these current developments, SA has Madgen (both of them) and not much else.

Whoever said make an all-star squad combining SA, WA, NT and TAS has the right idea.
Plenty of players to make other squads.

Rugby League has firm rules because there's only 2 states involved. There are plenty of guys in those games origingally from other states (and countries), but the rules help them to divide into those 2 camps.

With a sport that is played nationally (and internationally) it becomes more difficult

Including all leagues. VIC would absolutely dominate a hypothetical State of Origin.

VIC:
Andrew Bogut
Jonah Bolden
Ryan Broekhoff
Dante Exum
Ben Simmons

Jock Landale
Mangok Mathiang
Deng Adel
Mitch Creek
Matthew Delly

Thank Wright for the lack of SA talent. Continually brings in his nuffie mates from interstate over local talent.

Using 'place of birth' automatically excludes all foreign-born players.

Why not try, "NO RECRUITING RULES - AT ALL! (ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TO JUSTIFY THE SELECTION)",

Some examples that would stand up in a court of basketball law:
"He knew a guy who holiday-ed in Broome!",
"Great great great grandfather was born to first convicts in Tas".
"He once had a bottle of shiraz from the Hunter Valley".
"Cab-sav from Barossa".
"He wears gold mined in Ballarat"
"Loves pineapples".
"Button approved the papers in ACT".
"He does a great Haka".
And for imports....
"If he had had a choice, he would have been born in Australia!"

State first registered to play basketball in Australia would work. Could be as a 7 year old, or for a naturalised player, even 27.

I'd say where they played junior ball determines what State to play for.
Example Tony Ronaldson was born in SA but spent his junior career in Vic.
