JLA on NBA radar

Melbourne United centre Jo Lual-Acuil is on the NBA radar according to Newscorp.

“Jo came up against a former NBA and G League player in Will Magnay and dominated. If I’m an NBA club, I know which player I’m going with,” a respected figure with NBA afflictions told Newscorp.

Creek still keen on NBA

South East Melbourne Phoenix star Mitch Creek remains firm in his belief that he can be an impact player in the NBA.

“I feel like I deserve to be there and should be on a team. I feel like I can help organisations win, so I’m just waiting for the right time to get over there,” Creek said via Newscorp.

Hawks won’t fold

Illawarra Hawks star Tyler Harvey says the team won’t fold as they face the prospect of turning their season around after dropping out of the top four.

“This is a rough patch for us. You can either fold or step up and do what you need to do to win games. I know the character of the guys and we're not folding. We're going to step up and do what we have to do,” Harvey said via the Illawarra Mercury.

Taipans respond to Forde spray

Cairns Taipans rookie Bul Kuol says the team had no choice but to respond to the challenge laid out by coach Adam Forde last week, after he questioned their character and will to win.

“When you lose three consecutive games, you’ve gotta make a change. Coach put a challenge out there, we made a lot of mistakes on the defensive end, so he just called us out. It’s our job – he’s not the one that’s out there playing and so he just threw us a challenge and I think we responded well,” Kuol said via the Cairns Post.

Adams praises Buford’s coaching

Sydney Kings star Jaylen Adams has praised coach Chase Buford, saying he cares about the person as much as the basketball player.

“I have a lot of respect for him. He cares about winning, but he cares about you as a person and that’s not something you can say about every coach,” Adams told the Sydney Morning Herald.
