I remember Homicide and Kirk Penny playing for the World All-Stars in 2007.
Since you're a Tigers fan and the 2007 edition was hosted by Melbourne at SNAHC do you recall the three point contest?
Anstey entered it, over rating his shooting prowess after returning from Europe, in which he kept laying bricks to the point where his own home crowd booed him. Classic NBL moment.
The backstory was that his previous team in Russia loved bigs jacking it from range (unheard of back then, maybe they were ahead of their time?) but the kicker was they had bizarre things at the club like employing a witch doctor for the players.
While Anstey wasn't bad from three in-game a little later on when his ex-teammate Martin Muursepp joined it showed it wasn't good as an all-encompassing idea.
