Ellis a Croc, Bullets Need To Reload and ABA

I hope with his lucrative deal in Europe, CJ can afford a comb!

Today marked the end of an era for the Brisbane Bullets. Many would say they deserved what they got but the Bullets need to start looking for some new players.

Olympians CJ Bruton and Sam MacKinnon have the 2006/07 championship club in their rearview mirrors today. CJ is chasing the money in Europe while the former league MVP MacKinnon asked for a release. As told here yesterday, MacKinnon will join the Melbourne Tigers.

Another Bullet that is moving on is Dillon Boucher. Although he did not grab headlines like the other two, he will be missed. The New Zealand Breakers will utilize the tools (hustle) he brings every game. Boucher will be a nice replacement for the departed Mika Vukona (South Dragons).

The Crocs have signed import Rosell Ellis for the next two seasons. Signing Ellis has spelt the death for underrated import Galen Young. Corey Williams has yet put pen to paper on his contract offer.

Shane Heal has come out and said it is the Gold Coast Blaze or nothing for him. The Bullets must have been sniffing around to see what interest the "Blonde Bomber" had in driving up the highway everyday.

ABA Boxscores from the weekend:

Queensland - Micheal Kingma goes for 40pts/35rebs

New South Wales - Ben Arkell with a near quadruple double...7to's

Big V - Do you need NBL experience to play for Waverley?

SEABL - Since when has Anthony Stewart passed 13 times in a game?

South Australia - Oh boy, do Woodville miss Paul Rees, especially the jelly beans at half time.

Western Australia - Geordie Cullen and Carmichael Olowoyo are teammates.

Trick Shots with Sheed

Just in case anyone read yesterday's entry real close, I made 46 threes in five minutes today. Remember, I shot and rebounded my own ball. With little bit of luck and improved fitness I will crack 60 by the end of preseason.

And I hope you guys like the new look of the blog. Slowly but surely I feel it is improving with time. I cannot take all the credit. My main man Mili is responsible for the great "JR, On Fire" header.
