Labor Day Holiday = Links

#1 - Kobe's jersey is the best selling NBA jersey this year.

Although it is a public holiday (Labor Day) and a none work day for most Aussies, I thought I would still provide some coverage for those who log on during the day to get their hoops fix.

You will find lots of links so you can catch up with what is happening in the basketball world.

- A great article about the Adelaide 36ers and what is happening with basketball in the city of churches. Comments from 36er legends Phil Smyth and Mark Davis.

- Perth Wildcats finally announce that Rob Beveridge is their new coach. For those two people who didn't know this was happening, happy reading.

- David Andersen did his part to try and get his team over the line. His 24pts was not enough to lift Barcelona over CSKA Moscow into the Euroleague final. report boxscore

Don't forget you can catch the final (CSKA vs Panathinaikos) on ESPN at 4am Monday.

- Andrew Gaze to become a lifestyle show presenter? Yes he is. Look out for "Guide To The Good Life", in June on Channel 7.

NCAA just makes it harder and harder for the kids who see the college route as the way to the league.

There is going to be a paradigm shift that has started with Brandon Jennings and may continue this year.
