Australian Boomers VS USA Basketball 

Post#1 » by McKenna » Sun Mar 18, 2018 2:55 am

So, details just dropped for the biggest basketball event in Australian history (outside of the 2k Olympics)

Australian Boomers v USA Basketball, August 22 & 24 (2019) at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne.

Courtside tickets are $4000AUD -which is still over $3k in USD for our US friends following along.

The only reason I'm hesitating on dropping a couple of hundred for a VIP package is that the NBA "stars" are more likely to be Demar Derozan and Jimmy Butler, not Lebron and Curry.

I brought the VIP package, no way am i missing this, i don't care who plays. It'll be worth it to see Simmons and Exum!

Loving this. Good opportunity for the USA to start preparing to lose before getting Silver in the 2020 Olympics. ;)

$4000?????

Trouble is that it’s in the middle of a football stadium so if you’re not court side, you’re a long way from the action

I was going to take my son so will need to look at options
