It's off topic, but since at least Diop follows the nbl, one of the best french prospect (with Wembanyama, Batcho, Malwaya), Ousmane Dieng - he had offers from Duke among others - decided to join the new zealand breakers in Aukland.
Hopefully Diop will keep us updated, he is talented as hell (developed as a pg but he has Batum's size, id guess he will be a sg/sf), pretty crafty with good potential on both ends.

Another french prospect (a 6.6 sg with great scoring skills in 2nd division here but the rest remains to be seen in elite), Besson, will join him there

Found a kitten under my house. It was tied up in some wire or something. Needs to get it's leg amputated on Tuesday.

Decided to call it Stumpy.

Breakers are a well run organisation, they used to use the draft express guys as their scouts for a while.

Love seeing the new star system working in the NBL.

Ironically, an Australian prospect has chosen to play in the g league ignite instead

One of the greatest sentences ever written.

The Luka Doncic and Mike Tobey connection was in full flow as the duo combined for 50 points to help their side continue their momentum by reaching the Final


I have to assume Luka scored 46 of them.

Streaming my first live Phish show in about 18 months is the perfect night before draft activity.

And Mexico was complaining about how they were insulted that we showed up to the tournament with our B Team.

Good to see MLS/DA Academies finally starting to have a real impact on the depth of the Senior team. (Even though the DA apparently was another 'Rona casualty which is kind of a shame.) Investment in youth development takes time to pay off.

Why is realgm such a cesspool of spam, pop ups and garbage. I can’t even open it on my desktop without several warnings and my laptop working overtime just to handle all of the junk.
