    Why have Melbourne United moved away from using Margaret Court arena? I wasn't able to witness any games played there, but it seemed like a great fit for NBL. Are United drawing crowds more than...

    Wherever we can get the numbers up, I'm in. Hoops is better than here these days because of the number of users and quantity of discussion.

    What's the situation with the game on Saturday versus LSU at Hisense? Were all tickets only available through the ballot? Or are some available for purchase?

    1) The Wagstaff screen was, at worst, an ordinary foul missed by the refs; but consensus seems to be that it was just a hard screen and a fair no call....

    This was basically a corporate rebranding for the purposes of monopolising the Melbourne basketball market. They will never relinquish the Tigers name for that reason. While they would have pissed...

    That's pretty much exactly the same as me. Gaze lacked athleticism, he seemed slow, he didn't dunk (except on the road over Exum on sub-10ft rings), he had grey hair seemingly forever, but he was by...

    It isn't really the same thing for Perth. Perth has been a one NBL team city for decades and has no plans to add any more teams in Perth. If it happened to Perth, it would be just a rename.
