Harry Froling back to Brisbane

Brisbane ticking the signings off - thoughts on the big fella heading North?

thoughts on the big fella heading North?

"Why?"

Froling on many accounts simply didn't fit in with the Bullets playing group last time around and was generally a negative.

So of course the Bullets bring him back. Why not right, Bullets gonna Bullet.

Sammy Mack you right m8? Sigh.

Very strange decision, got tools to be good, work ethic is very minimal. Brisbane again looking like a coaches grave yard.

I suppose it comes down to how much he'll be on. While he has been ridiculed, myself included, after his good rookie season, he still can be very useful in this league if he sorts himself out. A modest contract but laden with incentives would work for both sides. Who knows, maybe the penny has dropped that he's not God's gift and that he's already a journey man in his mid 20s with not too many chances left.

Cheap contract + Brisbane renowned penny pinchers = makes sense.

Incredible that he's only 24. He improved his work ethic last season, if he continues that then he's a good pick up, but if he slips back obviously it's not.

It's looking that way at the chargers a bit, early days but he should be a twenty and ten man every game.

Theres a lot of Aussie NBL players who dont improve year on year because they know good enough is 'good enough' and that they can sustain a 10-15 year career in the league just by being a semi-okay basketball player. For someone like Harry there is no pressure to perform or improve for his spot. Unless coaches get more firm or spaces get harder to come by some guys will just float along. I guess it happens in the NBA as well to an extent but I feel like Daniel Johnson and other guys like this have been getting by with minimal effort to improving their weaknesses

Exactly right and the reason for it is there is no lower division being played under the NBL during summer for local replacements. Pressure creates diamonds but there is none in the NBL.

The Diamonds are in the rough, that's what the NBL1 is about.
