Having said that he is still a reasonable player and plays more in control and in the system (particularly at national level) then those guys do.

He's playing summer league, maybe for Sac or Denver??

I didn't realise he was like that. Im from NZ so I haven't seen much of him, just that he seems to play well against us.

Nope you certainly arent. As was said, Marbury type. He just gets lots of hype because he is black and Australian.

Also... I remember how sad it was when New Zealand beat us a few years back, the news were just like, in other news New Zealand has qualified for the World Championships(think it was that). I was just sitting there thinking... that means the sheep island beat us? But they never do say that.

A bit harsh on CJ - hes gone form a super scorer a few years back to a solid team contributor..... and has a few championships under his belt

Cal did something in a toilet I remember or at least I think I remember. I really couldnt give two ****s about the NBL it really is a low level of basketball and the coverage it gets outside of Foxtel is awful.
