News, Views & New Site

Marcus Timmons sending one in!

On the world wide web there are always new sites or blogs popping up that become fly by nighters. This is not the case for this new hoops website.

There is something to be found by everyone. It is a culmination of tid bits of information that has been collected over the history of the NBL.

I will guarantee you will leave the site having learnt something new or your memory has been re jogged about a special moment in NBL history.

Leave a comment as feedback will be appreciated about the site.

- NRL expert Warren Smith will be joining Andrew Gaze in the commentary booth for the upcoming Australian Boomers series against New Zealand.

The two game series kicks of Sunday on Fox Sports.

It seems that Smith will not be joining Gaze on a full time basis during the NBL season but I'm none the wiser as to who will be calling the games during the regular season.

- Former Chicago Bull and Adelaide 36 Luke Schenscher is without a club at this point in time.

With his eyes set on the NBA or scoring a lucrative deal in Europe, a back injury derailed his plan.

So if anyone has a job for a seven foot ranga, please contact this site and I will forward on all opportunities.

- Adelaide 36ers veteran Jacob Holmes is liking what he's seeing from the new look team.

- The Wollongong Hawks are close to signing their vacant import spot. The public will get their first look at who it is in Darwin during the NBL's preseason tournament.

Can the Hawks become a smokey this year?

- Former teammate turned AFL star Dean Brogan has been copping a little in the media of late about his aggressive nature.

- Jarryd Loyd who has been playing as an import in the New Zealand league is hoping it leads to an NBA tryout.

- Sudanese refugee Ater Majok has found his way onto the Boomers squad.

It has been quite an interesting off season for the University of Connecticut Huskies player. First he flirted with the idea of the NBA Draft, then it was believed he was looking at options in Europe, but the raw but skillful freshman has decided to return to the USA and start his college career.

- Gold Coast Blaze centre Greg Vanderjagt is ready to rock and roll for a full season this time round.

- The Cairns Taipans are ready to find out where they are at during the preseason tourney in Darwin.

- Here is the boxscore from the recent Gold Coast Blaze/ St Mary's College game.

The Blaze won 85-84.

YES , there ARE alot of "fly by night" basketball websites and shows on the Internet, but I'm telling you, this 1 is good, they got it RIGHT. Most have no clue or sound geeky and nerdy on radio shows which just turns people away and gives the sport a bad name, but this NBL resource centre site no way. is another good 1.

Now, Ater Majok is an Aussie????. Puhleease!.

Jarryd Loyd, never heard of him. Couldn't be too good if an NBL Club never picked him up.

Go get em Deano.
