NBL championship trophy

Do they still give out that towering trophy?

I love it, it is one of sports most iconic trophies but I seem to recall they don't give it out at the game anymore?

Please bring it back!

I believe it's called the Dr John rashtke trophy

Ah the memories I remember Mike Ellis hoisting it in 1990.

To have some of the bigger athletes in sports hoisting a small trophy just doesn't cut it

It last appeared in 2018 as the league awarded a newer (and much shorter) version of the trophy for the first time at the last Grand Final series.

RIP Original Dr. John Raschke Trophy.

Isn't it still the big trophy, but the section the hoist up comes apart from the base?
