WHAT YOU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS!

November 6, 2010

What up ballers!  It’s time for my ‘Recap’ of Round 3 action in the ‘NEW NBL!

1st / Breakers: Not only do the Kiwis boast the best practice facilities in the NBL, but more importantly, the best record!  They are “sitting on the top of the ladder”…..doesn’t quite work, does it? Shout-out to Otis! Nevertheless, they’ve learnt the hard way how important it is to get off to a good start in this competition! Sweeeet ez!  [3-0]

2nd / Hawks: No Rhys Martin. No David Gruber. NO Problema! The Hawks have already tied last season’s high in road wins!  They gave Perth a scare & on the backend of the infamous ‘Doomsday Double’, took down the 36ers!  Best coach in the NBL anyone?    [3-1]

3rd / Blaze: Everyone loves the Gold Coast…including that bloody ‘Injury Bug’!  What a blow he has delivered to Pero, Peach & the Blaze!  Good win over the feisty Taipans, but with 2 bigs down in 2 weeks, there’s a possible cold front in the forecast!  [2-1]

4th / Wildcats:  Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you Damien Martin!  That’s 2 in a row for the defending Champs! But with 3 of their next 4 games on the road, ‘Bevo’s Heroes’ will need every bit of that Championship experience & confidence!  [2-2]

5th / Kings: I think the Kings & the legendary Aretha Franklin both have something in common…..they want R-E-S-P-E-C-T!  And they certainly deserve it! The Kings are NOT to be taken lightly……just ask Townsville!  [1-2] 

6th / Crocs:  The Crocs are getting early work on their end of game ‘time & score’ situations & their nerves!  This team has replaced Cairns in my ‘Top 4’ but dude, they’re so ‘Jekyll and Hyde’!    [2-2]

7th / Taipans: The signing of Loughton has done wonders for Crosswhite’s game!  And I love the current form of Daniel Dillon!  I previously picked this team in my ‘Top 4’, but am now having second & third thoughts! OUCH!  [1-2]

8th / 36ers:  The Sixers were inconsistent defensively & still haven’t shot the ball anywhere close to their potential….and yet it still took quite an effort from the Hawks to get that win. It’s not a ‘must-win’ versus the Kings, but it would certainly help!  [1-2] 

9th / Tigers:  Is it time for the infamous ‘Shuffle Offense’ to go bye-bye? The Tigers played respectable basketball (thank goodness) against the Breakers & had a sniff!  BUT, now they play back-to-back games versus Gordie’s Hawks! Ashes to ashes……  [0-3]
