Earlier this year
NBL 1st Five.
Getting so close to end of reg season that I th0ught we should be nominating our choices for the NBL 1st Five. My 1st Five would prob include 10 to 15 current players, so my choices are useless.
Remember, that the NBL 1st Five are the 5 best players in their own positions (not necessarily the best team).
I would be keen to see both teams discussed (best players v best team).
I will start, but bound to change with each game played.
Reckon that the PG, SG, & PF will be fairly well supported. Not so with my (current) choices for the SF & C.
I am a Brisbane fan so know how well Patterson can play the SF. Surrounded by the others in "my" team, Patterson would be a lock, IMO.
As for Jawai, IMO, he and Iverson are quintessential centres. In Oliver's absence, Nate has been awesome in that role. I know that he can get beat in games but game-in, game-out, he performs very well. Once again, surrounded by the others above, Nate patrolling the paint, Landale stretching the 4 to all over the court, to an inside presence (beside Jawai) that would make the Paint impenetrable.
Now I know that some of my choices will change and I also know that your opinions will have a say in my Best Team. I honestly don't expect Patterson and Jawai in any NBL 1st Five but that's the Best Team that I like now.
who are in yours?
