2011 NBA Playoffs on Australian TV

On the eve of the 2011 NBA Playoffs, I thought it would be worthwhile keeping track of where and when the action will hitting our local TV airwaves.  This information was gathered from, One HD and Foxtel’s website – but that isn’t always 100% reliable, as evident by the laughable schedule I just read […]

Known to many simply as the “Frustrated Suns Fan”, Chucko was first introduced to NBAMate readers back in early 2008 and since then has been perpetually frustrated with his team.

We’re three days into the season and that means every team has now played at least once. It also means it’s the last time you’ll see every Eastern Top 8 team with a record above .500. Quite a momentous day really. The inspirational Vince Carter (aka “Captain Carter” which almost makes me vomit) lead his […]

Game 2, Kobe & Federer, and the World’s Strongest Man Minute

What a huge weekend it was in sports. Sunday evening I watched the Blues pull off one of the greatest comebacks I can remember – after scoring only 3 goals through the first three quarters, we piled on 7 more in the final term (and held Port goalless). Late Sunday night I settled in to […]
