Six Degrees Of Seperation

Julian Khazzouh gave Adam Ballinger a little something in Sydney, read below to find out where in the world these two guys ran into each other.

Wow is all I can say to the Wollongong Hawks/Townsville Crocodiles series to date. The games have been so bad I do not wish to relive them or nor should you.

I will say one thing on the back of a lot of Crocs fans asking me as I left, "Who will win Game 3?"

Like most games in the NBL these days, limit your turnovers and shoot the three ball at a good clip and you win alot.

Game 3 will be no different. It will just be a matter of which team executes their offense without turning it over will win.

Now onto the point of this blog. I have just been sifting through boxes so I have cut and paste them of players that have had some affiliation with Aussie basketball.

- In case you missed it yesterday, Andrew Bogut of the Milwaukee Bucks had 24pts, 20rebs and 5 blocks to become only the second Buck ever to register a 20-20-5 game.

The other was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

- Former Adelaide 36ers import Mark Tyndale is playing in the D-League for the Iowa Energy.

- When not talking it up on Twitter, for New Zealand Breaker Carlos Powell can be found in the D-League playing for Albuquerque Thunderbirds.

- Also in D-League, Sioux Falls SkyForce can been seen with former Perth Wildcat David Bailey, one time Taipan Jared Newson and Nathan Jawai together.

- Aussie centre Luke Nevill plays in the D-league for the Utah Flash, along side former Breaker Orien Greene.

- Recent Breaker import Kevin Braswell has just inked a deal in France.

- Former South Dragons championship winning swingman Tremmell Darden will come across Braswell in his French travels.

- Scoring machine Ebi Ere is plying his trade in Italy.

- Former Sydney King point guard Dontaye Draper is in Italy.

- Former Slinger/Tiger/36er Rod Grizzard can be found in Israel these days.

- West Sydney product Julian Khazzouh is also in Israel. He played against current/former 36er Adam Ballinger (12 & 10 on debut).

- Don't forget the National U/20 Championships are on. Catch up on all the results here.
