    It's not about difficulty, it's about money. Go and ask a plumber how much it costs to dig an 5 metre trench, 30cm deep. Probably in the region of $800? Nothing is simpler than digging a hole. You...

    We all know that if Frank Lowy happened to like basketball more than football, the situation would be reversed. The rich uncle business model very rarely works, and has been devastating for the NBL....

    It's not rocket science, it's just a motion offense and you can still run premeditated individual sets within the same action. Like any motion, the difficult part is reading the defense and making...

    What's the complaint with Reddit, the nonlinear nature of threads, or the lack of a feature to "follow threads", as in, get notifications of new posts?

    There a bunch of features missing that are...

    The more I see, the more I feel that the Kings have absolutely hit paydirt with the Gaze hire. You forget how much media these guys have done, and how comfortable they are in front of a camera. The...

    They got the numbers completely wrong. The system would allow one team to pay it's best 5 players $450k, and other team pay it's worst 5 players $400k. If that doesn't show salary disparity, I'm not...

    There's nothing wrong with being a system coach. Gaze probably still leads the league in career wide open backdoor layups.

    I don't mind the Gaze decision. I've been pretty critical of decisions made in the past on coaches with zero professional head coaching experience, but Gaze has a few advantages:

    Actually, I meant 6th to 10th.

    That would make more sense, but you are right, I think the actual rule is 7th to 11th.

    I think it's even more than that. I think it applies to your entire bench. In other words, your 6th through 11th highest paid players can't total more than $400k.

    Overall, a step towards an NBA...

    I get that people can find the JVG rants pointless and distracting, but he's still one of the best basketball minds on the national broadcasts. I can't think of too many regular commentators that...

    In international basketball, is Baynes really considered a PF? He plays centre in the NBA, surely that makes you a centre pretty much everywhere?

    This is the difference between an experienced coach. You have to build a culture. This is what someone like McLoud or Bevo could do day one. They'd demand it.

    The Kings have never been a well managed club. Never! The only time they were successful on court was when they hired Goorjian and he pretty much had full control over the roster. Good coaching...

    All I'm going to say about the coaching decision is that Rob Beveridge was not coaching in the NBL when they hired Cotter. Also, Gordie McCloud is currently not an NBL head coach today.

    This is how all teams guard the wing these days, particularly in the NBA. The reason is, if you beat your player driving to the middle it opens up the entire court to pass to. In other words, who...
