Law pretty much done. Fat still a ways off.

Another non-playoff season for the Bullets. 1-4 under Andrej's watch. And the 1 was a miserable first round exit as fourth seed to Perth.

Patterson is activated on the playing roster, to "presumably" play tomorrow.

Bairstow rubbish signing injury prone and Deng should go but won't be unless they bring in another replacement.

A fat Patterson showed with the Breakers he can still play and that was with zero chemistry with teammates. He'll be good for an effective 15-20 minutes. It will depend on how well the Hawks can exploit him though. I suspect he may struggle against the Hawks tempo and athleticism.

What has actually happened to Law? If he's not injured it stinks of what they did to that other import a few years ago, can't remember his name, but he was a gun. Maybe it's Lemanis attitude that's the problem and not these imports...

Nah not Trice, but he's another one who went to dogshit when he went to the Bullets. Burford was the guy I was thinking of, reckon he was close to MVP until he got scapegoated.

Burford was rubbish against any decent defensive player, didn't like defence himself. He didn’t last long in Europe, ended up in Asia some where.

Didn't Perrin Burford actually ask to be let go so he could play elsewhere?

Law is actually injured, according to Liam Santa some ligament damage.

Either way Lemanis threw him under the bus.

I know Vic Law had been injured, but he was meant to suit up twice to play, now that tells me the injury isn't very significant yet now he's out for good? It's a bit perplexing, to go from game time decision twice, to out for the season unless he is having some sort of surgery.

Lemanis said Law was the best import he'd had, he’s not playing him because he’s injured, some people are thick.

This could literally be 5-6 Bullets imports.

This game is vitally important for both teams.

At this stage the top three seem to be SEM, MEL and PER in no particular order.

Mathematically anyone can still get in but the realistic candidates are these 2 and Sydney.

A win here for the Hawks and it places a nice small gap between them and Brisbane.

And if Sydney loses tomorrow 4th spot really opens up.

Long way to go, who can beat Perth in Perth could decide fourth spot, or even who has still to go there.

If Vic Law is done you could see an import from NzNbl signed due to the fact they won't have to quarantine to 14 days and already in shape

I read Singler's name in a NZNBL thread. A forward, who can handle the ball, good IQ and previous team-mate to several current players and esp Patto.

With Braun, when the 3 played, it didn't work (IMO).

With Law, Bris were doing well.

If Law is gone and needs replacing, Patto can fill that role, then Singler, presumably game-ready and inexpensive would only improve them (back to Orlando Johnson standard again, anyway).

Patto over Johnson was a good deal.

Losing Law isn't.

Singler and Patto = Law and Johnson.

I am supposing that OJ won't want to come back. However, Lemanis certainly talked him up (not the usual diplomatic BS) and OJ may return, if asked, to be our minor saver ("savior" seemed over-the-top)?

This current roster, with Patto, and Law was starting to look great. Without Law we are still looking good (Patto did not achieve much last night but looking like he wants to play). The addition of either one of these two Singler/Johnson) would be beneficial without any disruption.

On the game itself, well I am thrilled with the unexpected comeback and result. Especially from our local players. Cadee and Froling really stood up and in reality, apart from Sobey, the rest of the roster could have done more/better but it was enough to beat the Hawks, with very little return from Patto. Thankfully, Harvey was off his game.

If we do get a Law-replacement (injury or permanent) before our Kings encounter we stand a good chance. Without that extra help, the struggle may be too much. And what if Law is actually OK and he plays?

All you know all's that we’re bagging Campbell for nearly bringing the hawks back on budget, now look like no nothings, plenty around here. The new manager part owner would be on three times what Campbell was earning for same results with a team also at at least twice the pay packet. It will be interesting to see how all this ends. Sometimes you have to take small steps, other than blow the whole thing up. It’s looking like the traditional hawks fans have walked away, those 2500 strong each season after tearing the guts out of it. I feel for Goorj.
