Dante Exum Injures ACL – Teammates React

Young Aussie Dante Exum of the Utah Jazz has torn his ACL in an International friendly against Slovenia and will likely miss the entire 2015-16 NBA season. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1OLbHEQZzI Exum has since returned to the United States where Utah Jazz medical staff confirmed the injury. In support of their fallen comrade, some of Exum's Utah Jazz teammates turned to Twitter to show their support. https://twitter.com/rudygobert27/status/628685589160853504 https://twitter.com/dfavors14/status/628704527588274176 https://twitter.com/Joeingles7/status/628692555824132096 “First and foremost, our overriding concern is with Dante and his long-term health,” Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said in a statement. “We are continuing to work...

Andrew Bogut – Championship Moments

Well, Australia's favorite Golden State Warrior is an NBA Champion. Aussie Andrew Bogut has claimed the most coveted hardware in the NBA after 610 games and a thought provoking 18,417 minutes of blood, sweat and tears. The big fella had the best seat in the house for the last few games but like the true professional he is, the support he gave remained strong until the final buzzer in Game 6. A lifelong dream fulfilled. See below for a bunch of celebratory images from the greatest Australian basketballer of all-time, Andrew "The...

Andrew Bogut – Left Hand Free Throw-erer?

I'm sure you've heard the saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and I think we can all agree that it has merit. On the flipside, if something is in fact broken, why not do something to remedy the situation? It appears Aussie big man Andrew Bogut is of the same opinion as he looks at new ways to make improvements on his low free throw shooting percentage. Lefty? Andrew Bogut shoote les lancers francs main gauche by BasketInfos Ever since his right elbow injury in 2010, Bogut had considered switching things...

Pre-Season Grab Bag

With the NBA season fast approaching, I figured it was time to start bringing back some content after a small off-season hiatus. We're kicking off in fine form too as the new guy in Cleveland finds a way to layeth the October smacketh down via this sweet feed from Kyrie Irving: Aussie Matthew Dellavedova may well be the Cavs' pre-season MVP already with that wonderfully executed train-dodge of LeBron James. On the flipside in Minnesota, young gun Andrew Wiggins showed off his rather impressive hops, connecting on this alley-oop pass from Rolls Royce...

NBA 2K15 = Delly Fix

So we all know that our quest to Fix Delly's Face on NBA2k14 went just horribly, with seemingly no one of influence paying attention to our many, many cries for assistance. The worm has turned however with the mighty Matthew Dellavedova seemingly created in his glorious (and accurate) likeness on the soon-to-be released NBA2k15 video game from 2K Sports. Feast your eyes on this little piece of social media gold from former Adelaide 36er, Darren Ng. https://twitter.com/DarrenNg8/status/511996378101215234 Real indeed. I think we all knew that Delly would be sorted this year, as...

Los Angeles – Ingles City

According to our good (long distance, he actually doesn't even know who we are) pal Marc Stein of ESPN, Aussie swingman Joe Ingles will sign a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Clippers. This brings the "Australian's in the NBA" number to eight and well, to be honest it's getting hard to keep track of. While you're trying to keep count, feast your eyes on Joe doing work: [embedvideo id="SU-HCHoMtbw" website="youtube"] https://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/status/511832824018513920 https://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/status/511833327578275840 Yes, yes he did.
