I'm not going to go into Perth Fans hate...I'll leave that for the experts.
Let's go into what Anon'532 has typed.
Example being the cry about Melbournes spending but fail to acknowledge that Bryce is now the highest paid player in the league.
Why are you comparing salaries last season with next season? Why would Perth fans bitching about something that happened last year be invalidated by something next year?
Or cry about Sydney having four imports, even though one was an injury replacement player
The issue was not about Deshon Taylor, it was about Lazada being a Next Star. Next Stars were originally for players ELIGIBLE for the draft, NOT a Draft and Stash. This just raises the bar so future next stars will be of James Ennis or Jordan McRae ilk.
but again fail to acknowledge when they had two imports, earnest Ross, drake U'u and naturalized Shawn Redhage.
You've just acknowledged that Redhage was naturalised then use him in an argument as an Import, that is Class A asinine.
Ross and U'u had some connection to Australia that made them locals in FIBA's interpretation.
