Sunday Six Pack: Back for 2010-11

Hear that? That was the sound of me cracking open the first Sunday Six Pack of the season – a weekly look around the league through our slightly green and gold tinted glasses. Hope your Sunday is a good one, wherever you are. ONE: Kicking off with the usual Aussie Roundup, we should probably pause […]

Aussie Roundup – 24 January, 2010

The Bogometer has been a little behind lately, and indeed I haven’t spoken much of Mr. Bogut since I lamented his inability to string four good games together. Well, Drew must have read my post because since I wrote it he has enjoyed his most consistent patch of the season: 5 double-doubles out of 7 […]

Sunday Six Pack: The Epic 2010 New Years Edition

ONE: It’s been a while between Six Packs, and with the time off I’ve had over the New Year I thought it was only fitting to churn out what will undoubtedly be the most massive Sunday Six Pack of all time. On the Aussie front, the biggest news this week has of course been the […]

Sunday Six Pack: Bad Shot Kobe, Dancing Lebron and the Evolution of Big Ben

 Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via Getty Images ONE: Ok so maybe I was a bit premature with the ‘Bogut for All-Star’ campaign. Or maybe that post put the mozz on him. Either way, the Bogey man has had a couple of sub-par games since that awesome effort against the Bulls earlier in the week. Against […]

Aussie Roundup – November 30, 2009

There is no Sunday Six Pack this week due to me working nightshift lately at my job (no I’m not a prostitute), and the curiously annoying sensation of being robbed 4-5 hours out of each day. And also because the time I could have spent six-packing was instead spent watching these guys. You need to […]

Sunday Six Pack: Midrange Game, Three-point Blame and Moustache Fame

ONE: A mixed week in the NBA, as far as the Aussie contingent goes. The bad news obviously being that Bogut injured his leg. The good news is that Bogut thinks he can get back on the court quicker than the 2-4 weeks that was initially diagnosed. I had a similar injury my second year […]

David Andersen Can Shoot

David Andersen playing no-look defense (AP Photo/Lori Shepler) Seems like every week there’s an Aussie in the NBA going for a career high. First Nathan Jawai, now David Andersen. In case you didn’t seen the game, Andersen and the Rockets (has a nice ring to it) completely upstaged LA in front of their home crowd […]

Nathan Jawai tops scores for the Timberwolves… do not adjust your TV set

That ain’t no photoshop folks (well, the red circle is). Tonight in the NBA something completely unexpected happen – not only did Nathan Jawai get serious minutes, but he outscored everyone on his team. The 23 minutes Jawai had today almost doubled his total minutes so far this season. His 16 points on 7-11 shooting […]

Sunday Six Pack: Lebron-Shaq, the Aussie Contingent and the Wall of Fame

ONE: First off the rank is the Aussie Roundup. Lots of Aussie-related NBA news happening in the last week, all of which you would have seen if you’re following the NBAMate Twitter feed (more on this later). You all know by now that Patty signed with the Blazers – a move that many thought could […]

Under a Gum Tree

It’s not every day that you see an article on written about Aussies in the league. Even rarer to see one quote lyrics from a Rolf Harris song. But that’s exactly what Fran Blinebury has served up today in a piece about Andrew Bogut and David Andersen. But more interesting than the basketball bits […]
