Nbl All-star Game

Amazingly the world all-stars have been installed as favourites for this game .. even more amazing is the fact the books actually put out lines for this circus!

World is two point favourites and the total is set at 267.5! These games are high scoring but I don't know if the guys will be willing to run to that extent .. Most if not all will be minimising their efforts .. half of them would prefer not to have to play!

They're the imports who play in the NBL .. all of whom are American (besides Dave Thomas but I don't know if he's playing this year?)

Aussie All-Stars Starters
Chris Anstey – Melbourne Tigers - Centre
Joe Ingles – South Dragons – Small Forward
Sam MacKinnon – Brisbane Bullets – Power Forward
Darryl McDonald – Melbourne Tigers – Point Guard
Brad Newley – Townsville Crocodiles – Shooting Guard

Aussie All-Stars Reserves
Ben Pepper – New Zealand Breakers
CJ Bruton – Brisbane Bullets
Tony Ronaldson – Perth Wildcats
Paul Rogers – Perth Wildcats
Martin Cattalini – Cairns Taipans


World All-Stars Starters
Larry Abney – Townsville Crocodiles - Centre
Rashad Tucker – Melbourne Tigers – Small Forward
Shawn Redhage – Perth Wildcats – Power Forward
Cortez Groves – Wollongong Hawks – Point Guard

World All-Stars Reserves

This is the first time I am looking at the respective lineups. I see the line being -/+ 1.5 in favour of the Aussie All Stars

Similar to the NBA All star game this is done by public vote, so the best players of the season to date may not necessarily get a starting position.

In the American team, Powell has been head and shoulders the best import yet finds himself on the bench as well

Re: Nbl All-star Game

This game is mainly for the fans regardless of what the players say.

That's the only reason a player like Joe Ingles is starting ahead of Cattalini.

And why is Ebi Ere not playing? :retard:

My signature sucked so I made this one instead.
