I'm so excited to see Simmons and Exum mature together. Exciting times for Australian Basketball.
As an Australian I don't think there has ever been this much hype about our young talent. The prospect of having a few really talented forwards is practically unheard of. 3 years time and we could have a fair few guys in the NBA!
Also keen to see how they stack up in international competitions, reckon it could put us up as a possible second best team
@Seamo15; with the amount of young talent in Canada right now, I think we'll have to settle for a third best team at the very best.
There are some great young players in Australia though, one of the NITP athletes who I've had the pleasure of playing against, coaching against and coaching on a few occasions is Jetani Hunter - not on the level of Simmons or Exum, but a great athlete and works very hard.
@omphalos; yeah i think i got caught up in the euphoria of it all and forgot about Canada. Just tried searching Hunter, he must be pretty under the radar cause i couldn't find much on him at all. Hope to hear his name come up in the future all the same if you think he's decent
