Could the Jacks beat the 1988 Geelong Supercars?

"What's the story with Mikhailovskii?" This is a new discovery? No. Done nothing in the Blitz.

Same negative nancy anon, from the other thread, who gives indication of not knowing the sport indepth?

Of any Next Star this season actually thought he would be the best. But I'm probably wrong. Doesn't seem like a take-over-the-game guy, and doesn't have the tools for that. Not a dominant personality either. Australia wouldn't be an easy transition from Russia, like it would be for US kids

I'm asking those who've watched the games why he's done nothing in the Blitz? Poor skills? Too young? Too slight? When it was announced, I wondered if he'd be their X-factor but maybe more factor.

I didn't see the Cats-JJ game where he looks like he got decent mins, but I watched both the first two games and when I checked the box score I realised I didn't even notice him on the court.

I have been to all but 1 JJ's games.
Never impressed at all. Never demands the ball, in warm up lack lustre and simply looks disinterested.
I saw Ball play here and everyone knew he could play. Chalk and cheese. I have seen lots of basketball over the years and I for one don't rate him at all.
NS, no way. Unless he's laying down until the season starts and why would he?
A bust like a lot of the JJ's selections.

Ball wasn't good in Lithuania, did good in Australia, similar cultures, it’s a complete cultural change for the young Russian, hopefully he settles down and shows something.
