Wildcats are champs!  Massive choke by United.  The eastern states media said the following during the season:

- they cannot win with only 2 imports
- they won't make finals
- They should release Terrico White

EAD, a big fat one for all the haters.  Gleeson not even top 3 for CoTY, Bogut better than Cotton?!?  NBL might have been able to control those results, but a team of players and 2 imports with no ego get it done again.

Haha the NBL awards lost all credibility in not respecting Cotton and Gleeson.

Who cares though! Champions again. Great to win for Hire, Terrico was phenomenal throughout the finals!

How good is it when you win an AFL Premiership on Vic soil, then you back it up by winning an NBL title on Vic hardwood.  Man it feels good, shut all the Vic media up.

Haha yep, they've gone quiet for a bit. As soon as we lose a game over there though they'll be chirping again ::)

RJ Hampton to New Zealand. Excluding Bogut this is probably the biggest signing ever

But that’s why players go to college also why guys like Morant don’t have to be one and done freshman because they can use college to make themselves stars RJ can’t do that here. One because no one cares about the NBL they still rate it outside the top 5. Randle dominated TBT and people still don’t know what league he played in

I like that RJ decision anyway, left as an underclassman with less credits meaning some chance of eligibility issues and he wanted to be a pro anyway. Just hoping the NBL can get the guy on marquee time slots both for promotion and to also get him on FTA because NBL on Fox has awful rating (despite breaking attendance records). I’m worried we are gonna have a future star playing in our backyard and even this Aussie public won’t care enough to watch

Agree they et much less exposure leaving US to play elsewhere, but if they're going to be a star that won't change.  Look at Doncic who played outside USA, less exposure, slipped in the draft and ended up the best player in the crop at this stage.  RJ is going to get solid experience from playing against guys like Ware, Damien Martin, Cotton, Trimble.  Overall this will better his game I believe.

We really need Melo Ball here. He’s ineligible for college anyway but hopefully if he can get here they actually build something for these 2 guys

Yeah saw that, not sure who the third and 4th HS players were going to be. Obviously haven't got them. But good start unfortunately this had to happen 5 years ago. Elimination of one and done only a couple years away

As we all expected Melo Ball coming her to play as he can’t pkay in the US at all this season. Think the bigger name is Aaron Brooks, Hawks we’re smashed last year without an import PG

Yep massive upgrade overall at the Hawks, rumours swirling around that Swaggy P might be on his way downunder too!  :o
