    Congratulations to the Boomers. Bogut would love to have a medal finish before he sails away from his Boomers career. For the Tall Blacks, I'd love to watch them compete in the wildcards set for next year. In this game, Lindsey Tait's defense was good but the Boomers had the momentum.

    While the Tall Blacks lost by 12 and 10 pts respectively in Melbourne and Wellington. I still can say they were playing beyond their weight and talent. This is one of those games where you come away saying: That's why they're in the NBA in reference to Bogut , Mills and Delly. Bogut was just to much of a mismatch, would have had a better chance if Adams was around. a few consolations that come out:
    Fotu looks like he has a legitimate shot of making an NBA roster
    Webster is indeed an elite scorer internationally, not sure with his volume of shots though if an NBA team will take a chance on him ( he's best suited playing in Europe)
    Bartlet , Ti- Rangi and Jarrod Kenny have to be considered Australian NBL rotation players. ( somethings wrong it there not signed to a team)
