Thanks for letting us know.
Now NZ can keep Trist and Weeks and add Loe into the squad.

Step up WMW. I'm looking forward to a pass first point guard.

T Webster, Vasilijevic, Noi, Law, M Deng, Bairstow, J White, Humphries, Majok Majok, Sykes, Pineau, Cooks and Glover.

Enough talent there to make a team, certainly the worst year for injuries that I can remember.

And how many of the players on that list are Perth? They have been incredibly blessed thus far, and still barely are holding onto top spot. United have missed Goulding, Ili, White, Hopson for extended periods throughout and are right there.

Before Perf fans come running, my point is that there is going to be a luck element which comes into play at the pointy end of the season, for Perth, Melbourne, SEM and anyone else who potentially qualifies.

A really good chance to see what WMW has got. He'll get 25-30 minutes and the chance to run the team. It will also be a good chance to assess if Tai Webster hurts his team more than he helps them.

Perth benefitting from there being less restrictions in the off season last year for them and being able to keep a more normal training load.

#611 you are right in saying Perth has been lucky injury wise compared to all other teams but to frame it as "barely holding on to top spot" shows a real lack of understanding of the season so far.

3 imports don't stop injuries but some teams need that 3rd import

Jackjumpers definitely will need 3 imports they sell tickets instead of some locals that will sign and will not be big names

If Cotton gets injured Perth we may actually see a contest for the title.

Thankfully for us Perth fans the Wildcats are too lucky and blessed to have these sorts of injuries.

Perth with a roster including Kevin White, Jarrod Bairstow and a DP (Luke Travers) starting in games is more of a handicap than any team in the NBL with injuries. At least with injuries u can replace them. This is the reason why Perth is the best team. Can u imagine United having a team which included White, Bairstow and playing DP starting minutes and even making the finals let alone leading the league and winning the NBL cup in an away series?

When you look at the Wildcats they only have 3 legitimate starters (Cotton, Mooney, Norton) and no legitimate 5, Mooney is a PF being played out of position. Look at the cats bench White (spud), Jarvis (retirement home), JBairstow (spud), Britt (spud), Wani (DP), Travers (DP), Blanchfield (good bench), Steindl (inconsistent bench), Wagstaff (good bench).
How the hell with a roster like that do you lead the league?

It has always been the case with the wildcats that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Having said that, Cotton is the best player in the league so that helps.

Its almost as if you dont need superstars at every position, you just need some good players who know their roles and fulfil them. Once Melbourne work that out they might win one.

Yes Perth are extremely lucky on the injury front so far.
But our depth is shocking.
Norton would be backup on most teams bit is a good fit alongside Cotton in Perth.

Blanchfield is having a great year.
Jervis, White, Lo Buluk and J Bairstow are spuds.
Lo Buluk rarely hits the court, Shervill and Travers get more time as DPs.

Wagstaff and Steindl are fighting a battle with father time.

"Once Melbourne work that out they might win one."

yes because it's not like they have been champions in the last 3 years is it.
something that 7 other teams can't say.

Blanchfield has never been a bench player in any club he's played for. They match up well on all sides. Have a look at Sixers bench before you start complaining, Cairns, bench and half there starters, actually the Perth bench is good compared to most teams.

Blanch field is averaging 15 a game on good shooting percentages from everywhere. If he is your best player your team won't be good, but if he is the third member of an NBL version of a big 3 (which he is in Perth) he is very good. Saying he is not a legitimate starter is just blatantly incorrect
