NBL Round 9

Kings will be without Rowland against the Breakers who was cut today from the squad. What a complete mess the Kings' roster is at the moment, Elliott not performing either, he'll be gone shortly as well IMO. Add to that Smith is not even certain he will ever be 100% this season even if he does comeback and play. That second half against the Cats was quite easily the worst I have seen any Kings' team play over the past 4 years.

Looks like Goorj has used up all his luck in finding all those quality imports, rumour is K-Free will be a King by the end of the week.

Re: NBL Round 9

One of Brian Goorjian's great strengths since going to Sydney has been his ability to find fantastic imports. It's a huge step backwards to tinker with your American content once the season is underway, but I expect whoever he does bring in to improve Sydney's performance.

BTW .. A little birdie told me recently this will be Jason Smith's last season .. Apparently he's done, his knees are shot and he's had enough ..

Re: NBL Round 9

Couple things...

Where do you guys get all your inside information from?
I need contacts.

What happened to Roland Roberts?

Was Bryant Matthews part of this squad before the season started?
If I remember correctly stuff happened and he got cut..

And Kings would be taking a huge risk with K Free, IMO. He was Bullets star import not long ago (and wasn't really underperfoming) and still got cut. Joey Wright is no slouch in coaching department - so something obviously went down...

Love to see him back in the league though.

My signature sucked so I made this one instead.

Roland Roberts was within a hair of becoming a Taipan this season .. But some lingering financial issues with the Kings killed that one off ..

Bryant Matthews was allegedly linked to a sexual assault case and Sydney sent him packing as soon as that broke ..

As for Kevin Freeman, well the Kings need a big and he'd be a good fit because he's a scorer too .. But with Jason Smith looking like a week to week proposition and their point guard gone, they're also light on in the back court ..

Actually bringing in K-Free and keeping Elliot wouldn't make a lot of sense .. the Kings would suddenly become a little top heavy with forwards .. Either let Elliot go, replace him with Freeman and bring in another PG or just do the latter and keep Elliot ..

Re: NBL Round 9

Tough game tonight IMO from a betting point of view, my normal capping methods overall give a slight lean to the Pigs +, but my gut feeling is that the 36ers will be too good. So pass for me. Goodluck to those having a go.

Re: NBL Round 9

I love the Kevin Freeman pickup for the Kings, provided of course he can produce the kind of form he has in the past in the NBL.

Re: NBL Round 9

Only angle that interests me in the Adelaide / West Sydney game is the total .. U/O 207.5 .. Neither team plays defense, but I wouldn't put it past their offense not to mis-fire for a portion of the game tonight too .. ?!

I think New Zealand is very nearly "cracker alert" material as underdogs at home against Sydney tomorrow .. They're playing tough across the ditch this season, and while normally I'd favour the Kings in this spot - given that they've lost two straight - I'm not sure they have the confidence (or the personel at the moment) to drag themselves back onto the winners list in this one ..

Re: NBL Round 9

That would have to be one of the worst halves of basketball I have seen from the Adelaide 36ers in my lifetime. They made the Pigs look like the Sacramento Kings lol

Re: NBL Round 9

Over looking on track but it wouldnt surprise me to see the second half die off if the last 5 mins of the second quarter was anything to go by.
