Q&A: Shane Heal on the SEQ Stars, that trip to Adelaide and being out in the cold

Q&A: Shane Heal on the SEQ Stars, that trip to Adelaide and being out in the cold

Shane Heal is doing it tough. You can hear it in his voice. The turmoil surrounding the WNBL’s financially-stricken South East Queensland Stars has taken its toll. His unceremonious ousting as the team’s head coach – and the mud-slinging that has followed since – has clearly knocked him for six. Of course, this is nothing new. We’ve seen these kinds… Read more →

NBL Round 18 Winners & Losers: NZ Back from the Dead, Adelaide Wavering & Perth Clinch #30Straight

NBL Round 18 Winners & Losers: NZ Back from the Dead, Adelaide Wavering & Perth Clinch #30Straight

WINNERS Perth Wildcats It would’ve been to safe to pencil the Wildcats in for their 30th consecutive playoff appearance weeks ago, if not at the start of the season. But now that it’s officially locked in, lets pause for a moment to ponder how truly absurd this achievement is. Even the Lakers and Spurs, the very symbols of sustained basketball… Read more →

Are You Sleeping on OKC?

Are You Sleeping on OKC?

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors’ bloody disregard for humanity has caused a blackout upon the rest of the NBA whereby top-flight teams have become a mere cute sideshow. Never have we seen a defending champion elicit such potent tremors through enemy camps. The Cavs fired its coach, Blake Griffin punched an equipment manager, Doc Rivers the GM tossed… Read more →

Ebi Ere on His Return to Form, the 36ers’ Title Chances & Finishing His Career in the NBL

 The year was 2007. The Brisbane Bullets were playing the Sydney Kings in an early season heavyweight clash at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. Sam Mackinnon controlled the ball at the top of the key for the Bullets, defended closely by Sydney’s Russell Hinder. Mackinnon drove left and put up a running shot attempt with his right hand. Then it happened…. Read more →

We Need to Talk About Marcus

We Need to Talk About Marcus

Marcus Thornton’s season has been inglorious. His team is last on the ladder, he’s shooting 36.6 percent from the field and he was the victim in the Illawarra beer-pouring incident. The Sydney Kings’ import guard joined the team after averaging 20 points per game in his senior college season and being drafted in 2015 by the Boston Celtics. Despite those… Read more →

NBL Round 16 Winners & Losers: Randle Rampage, Circus Shots & NZ Breaking

WINNERS Jerome Randle To quote Downtown’s Editor-in-Chief, “Jerome Randle told us seven weeks ago, we just weren’t listening.” Randle had MVP promise from day one, but this week the gap between the Sixers star and the pack was so large you could’ve flown a plane through it. Randle was firing from the get go against Sydney on Wednesday night. As… Read more →
