'Homicide' not finished with Bogut beef

The Twitter beef with Bogut

My response to that exchange with Andrew Bogut will be coming tomorrow on the NBL show Overtime.

All I'm going to tell you is watch Overtime and I'm going to give you everything you need. I believe this will be the biggest ever viewing of Overtime because everybody is waiting for what I'm going to say.

I'm not going to respond to it here because it deserves being discussed on the right platform. But don’t worry, I'm going to give the people what they want.

Cotton leads Wildcats to win

Who is the team to beat from here?

What I am going to say is the Sydney Kings are the team to beat. I like the way they're coming together, winning a huge game in Perth, to win the way they did. They're showing people that they are a serious contender for the championship.

The Sydney Kings are the team that I chose in the off-season to win the NBL championship. Things take time and they are showing everyone that by going to Perth and getting that win, that they are for real. We all know how tough it is to get a W in Perth.

They were the first team to do it and they backed it up by going to Illawarra and handling business, making it four-straight, and beating Perth twice. That is enough for me to know that they are a serious favourite for the title.

You can’t ignore the defending champions, Melbourne United though. They have a star-studded lineup as well. Yeh, they lost to Brisbane but apart from that they've been travelling really well.

Today is a huge game between two teams that are serious contenders, Melbourne and Perth.

I'm going to be very interested in seeing that. I 'm really excited to be working today on that game.

Bullets spring major NBL upset

Why Perth are such a consistently strong side in the NBL

The depth in Perth makes them so consistent. Players needed to step up and they did so far this year, that's why they've been in first place since the beginning.

They have superstar Bryce Cotton, they have leadership with Damien Martin and they have two great pickups in the off-season in Mitch Norton, and Nick Kay, the best power forward in the NBL at the moment. So they have a really good nucleus.

You can’t look past Terrico White who has played well, hasn't been so consistent, but because of their depth they haven't had to rely on White as much. They have that balance in attack and they play D-basketball which makes them a contender.

Kings gaining momentum towards the playoffs

I think it's extremely important for the Sydney Kings to be on their A-game towards the end of the season and I still do not think we have seen the best of them.

They are a work in progress. There's things that they have to tweak. Once they tweak those little things, mainly defensively - that's the biggest thing Andrew Bogut brings on that team, that's what he provides as a defensive big - then they will be complete.

Bogut is leading the league in rebounds and in blocks so he's a genuine candidate for MVP of the league.

A year ago this team were dead last and now they're second. So Bogut warrants that MVP talk. He's having a great season and because of him the Sydney Kings are in the position that they're in.

Gaze’s role in the Kings’ resurgence

I think that Andrew Gaze is a staple for basketball in Australia. I believe that the best thing that happened was they surrounded him with the type of team he has today. For example, do we know that Phil Jackson is a great coach? We don't know that because he had Michael Jordan. Then we Phil left Chicago he had Shaq and Kobe in LA. So what you do is you surround the person with not the best coaching ability, with talent, so they don’t rely on him solely coaching. And that's what they finally did.

This is how you would want to see Andrew Gaze coaching - with a good team. With the situation that he's in, he's done a good job.

If no-one has the pieces, how are you going to win? With limited coaching, it is rare. It is hard. What you do instead of leaving them on an island, exposed, you give them the talent that he needs and as you can see, it's working out so far.
