Another Aussie joins the NBA with Ryan Broekhoff signing a 2 year deal with Dallas. He was an All-Star this past season in Russia.

Hopefully I might have to jump on the Mavs if Mitch Creek makes the team too.

Frank Ramsey, the NBA’s original “sixth man” has passed away. Ramsey was a 7 time NBA Champion with the Boston Celtics.
He was 86.

Mitch Creek started for Dallas today and had 13 points & 7 boards on 5-7 shooting against Golden State :)

Also former NBL import Torrey Craig who played with Denver last season has re-signed with the Nuggets to a 2 year $4 million deal.

Jonah Bolden the son of former NBL legend Bruce has now become the record 10th Australian in the NBA next season signing with Philly to a 4 year deal after they drafted him in 2017. His new teammate Ben Simmons is also the son of a former NBL import Dave Simmons. Then you've got Cecil Exum's son Dante at the Jazz too.

Jonah Bolden, Ben Simmons, Dante Exum, Patty Mills, Aron Baynes, Matthew Dellavedova, Joe Ingles, Thon Maker, Mangok Mathiang & Ryan Broekhoff.

I remember back in the early-mid '90's how stoked I was see a second Aussie make it to the NBA when the Washington Bullets signed Andrew Gaze to a couple of 10 day contracts joining Luc Longley in the show.

It's crazy for a nation of our small size to now have 10 Aussies in the NBA :D

From nba.com "Rondo has been suspended for instigating a physical altercation with, and spitting and throwing multiple punches at, Paul."
Although I am not the biggest CP3 fan, it would appear 'the grub' in this instance is Rondo.
I apologise.

I've never been a Rondo fan either. Seen the footage, wasn't a spit ; more like he was blowing. Paul went for his eyes.
