Looks like Bogut is heading back to GSW!
Just me or does anyone else think Sydney should block this... It’s a team sport, his team could still be playing. Personally I’d block it until the NBL finals are finished

Sydney are eliminated though, are they not?

I don't think there is anyone I follow now like those days though, just enjoy good basketball.

This is pretty much me now too

One thing I loved about growing up in our era was that most of the greats were all 1 club players, so supporting "your team" just had more of a feeling to it

Now it's just a meat market, and very hard to invest into a side, so I'll stick to just loving watching great basketball and great players :)

You're an Eagles supporter so I would say get on the Wildcats train, the atmosphere is amazing at the games and membership is a fraction of the cost of Eagles.  Closest you will get to American style sports in Australia.

I'm an Eagles supporter, but I'm born, raised and live in Melbourne :)

NBL doesn't really interest me. I mean, I'll watch a little bit if I am surfing and it's on, but I don't follow it at all like I do the NBA

I think I am at the age now where supporting new clubs probably isn't my thing. WCE is the only club I am passionate about, every other sport I just watch the best but don't support an actual team

Lakers are so shower. I can't quite put it into words but there's something about their starting 5 which just has a real misfit feel to me, and I just don't rate guys like Rondo and Ingram much at all

I'm not sure LeBron thought it would have actually been this bad lol

Rondo's actually been one of their best players, Ingram is good, but just doesn't fit.  Things didn't go according to plan for LeBron, it all derailed when Kyrie left the Cavs.  I for one am glad this is happening, LeBron gets away with way too much and it's coming back to bite him now.  Ruined the Cavs after saying he would play out his career there, made them pay ridiculous amounts to Tristan and JR, plus tried to get them to trade their one and only decent draft pick, then left them to burn.  Winning a championship probably outweighs all that, but Cavs have been left decimated.  Now Walton will get fired and LeBron will decide who the coach is.  He'll get his free agents again eventually, he'll trade who he wants, but his additions Beasley, Stephenson, McGee have all been fails compared to the young guys.

Yeah, LeBron has ruined the Lakers. We're going to end with the same record as last year but have since lost Randle and Zubac from our young core. Next he'll orchestrate trading away Ingram, Lonzo, and Kuzma, and we won't be winning a championship in the West with LeBron and his ragtag idiots...

I honestly think we'd be better off if we'd just kept DLo (flowering Mozgov contract), Randle, Zu and had a really strong 6-7 player young core.

Probably didn't word that right re Rondo, just don't think he fits, the entire line up just has a real misfit feel for me. He just became the second person ever to make a triple double with 5 different clubs - that's pure journeyman

Anyway, how the hell do Phoenix keep beating Milwaukee? Lol

Randle was a huge mistake, they did not give him enough respect and he'd be beasting it next to Lebron right now.

Snitch has been incredible, never thought he'd show this type of talent, but he might be one of the leagues most elite scorers in the next 5 years.

This is the crap LeBron has been doing this season while also complaining about the young core. I'm sure next year will be different but right now I'm sick of his shower.

The young core was fine until Lebron turned his back on them and tried to trade them.  His player signers were trash.  Someone/anybody needs to call him out and hold him accountable.  Less and less superstars want to play with him.

was it?

the team was going great. 4th seed in the west, Lebron a MVP candidate and then Lebron got injured.

They then struggled before the AD talk.

Can't confirm, but pretty sure the first 25-50% of the season was fairly easy for them schedule wise.  LeBron has been banging on about living and breathing basketball to the younger guys, yet he's in the studio with 2 Chains and preparing to make Space Jam 2, leaders lead by example, Lebron is not this.

He uses cryotherapy, hyperbaric chambers, has a strict routine and diet, hires personal chefs and trainers. He looks after his body.

Lebron has proven himself over decades. He has put the time in and thats why he was on MVP pace before going down with an injury in year 16 when many of his fellow legends had already retired. He is already 15th all time for minutes played and will likely end up top 3.

Space Jam 2 is shooting in the offseason (and you cant spend your whole time training and playing in the offseason you need rest)

I think calling out one of the best atheltes ever in the nba who has put this much time and effort into his body and his game is a bad move.
