Rashad Tucker...Gone..NBA ALL STAR BALLOT

Word on the street has Rashad Tucker done in the far north. Was it injury or something else that has caused the Taipans to take action?

Just last week coach Alan Black said Rashad had been playing injured all season so he just needed to rest his groin.

If it is a short term injury you would think the club would not have a "knee jerk" reaction. The team had a good win in New Zealand on Thursday, so you would not think change is needed.

My sources say the Taipans have released him due to infringement of club policy. If this is true it will be interesting to see what the truth is once the smoke has cleared.

No one (Tucker or the Taipans) have made a comment as to what the exact problem was.

I will keep a close eye on the developments of this one.


This week the ballot come out for the NBA All Star Game. China spat the dummy a little as Bucks forward Yi was not on it.

Good news for the Aussies, Andrew Bogut, also of the Bucks, made it. All good and bad Aussies should go to http://www.nba.com/ and cast your vote. It is about time an Aussie got a run in this game.

With Orlando's Dwight Howard in some great early season form, it will be interesting to see if he beats Shaq or Bogut out for the starting centre's position. Shaq has had a mortgage on this position as the fans love the big fella but could they be swayed this year?

My lineup would be:
East: Billups, LeBron, Pierce, KG, Bogut
West: Davis, Kobe, McGrady, Dirk, Yao

You can always drop me a line and let me know who your squad would be!
