#HardBall Podcast: Episode 13 feat. Greg Hire

Round 15 Recap This week on a special live episode of the #HardBall Podcast Tommy Greer, Liam Santamaria and Brett Thomas recap all the major story-lines from the NBL’s Chemist Warehouse Heritage Round. The boys discuss Melbourne’s two convincing wins over Cairns, Perth’s dominance at home over Sydney and Adelaide’s rise into the top 4. The boys also chat about Illawarra’s impressive 2-0 round against the New Zealand Breakers and what those losses mean for the defending champs. Greg Hire Interview Perth forward Greg Hire has been an important cog in the Wildcats machine over the past few seasons and this year has been no different. Hire’s hard-nosed, take-no-prisoners approach to the game epitomises Wildcats Basketball and in his team’s convincing win over Sydney in Round 15, he pulled down his 500th career rebound. Hire joins the boys to discuss Perth’s bounce-back win at home, his admiration for import Casey Prather and who he would prefer to play in a Semi Final series. Round 16 Preview Round 16 of #HardBall tips of on Wednesday night with the Adelaide 36ers hosting the Sydney Kings. Adelaide will be unveiling their new ‘Scorecube’ at Titanium Security Arena and will be fired up to extend their current winning streak and solidify their place in the top 4. Thursday sees the Townsville Crocodiles host a slumping New Zealand Breakers before the Illawarra Hawks head the Jungle hoping to avoid a 4-0 season sweep at the hands of the Perth Wildcats.
