People on here seem to think about half the league is "below NBL standard", which makes one wonder how "NBL standard" is defined if it's not by, y'know, playing in the NBL
They must be referring to that other NBL, the one that is so much better than all the "shit European leagues"
It's a wonder we have a league at all, when all these guys who aren't even "NBL standard" can "make $800k" playing for "shit European leagues"
Nobody expected trist to be a super-star on his return, but his performance in Europe certainly portended better than he delivered. It's not surprising he's been cut after lacklustre seasons, but the poor performance itself is.
Madgen is fine. He may nolonger be starter quality, is on the brink of retirement, and maybe wants more than SEM were willing to pay, but he'll be a very handy bench option for some team.
Ostensibly local player numbers have remained the same form last season. However overall many are taking a step-up in the roster.
It remains to be seen which direction our overall talent pool goes. Will we see a net outflow of guys like Kay, Wake, and Cooks?
Or a net inflow of Marquees like Broekhoff?
Until we know, its too early to write-off Madgen
