All Star Game Taking Shape

The teams have been announced for the All Star game being held in Melbourne on Wednesday the 12th of December. You can find the line ups here.

There is no denying that the NBL is a guards league, but for the World team to have so few bigs named, I cannot see how they can come away with a win. Sure, Kavossy, Cortez and Ebi could all get hot, but who is going to get a rebound for this squad.

Sure they have Muursepp and Rickett but an All Star game is not played at their pace. Although Larry Abney is having a down year to date, he is suited to this style of game. His rebounding has been there and he runs the lanes hard. That adds up to success in an All Star game. Maybe the "Birdman" will get a call up from the reserves.

The game itself could end up a real shoot out if a few of the "Seppos" catch fire. I hope so because I will be in attendance and I want a show. Homicide needs to fire his guys up, otherwise it will be a long night and an extra looong flight back to Townsville.

Brad Newley is on fire over in Greece. This past weekend he went David Barlow on my old team AEK. He scored 32 on a perfect night. 4/4 for 2's and 8/8 from the land of plenty. His team is 3-1 but he has already been exposed to life in Europe. A fired import and coach and I'm sure a few more changes to come.
