Latest episode of Hoops Heaven's Basketball Hustle is another jam packed show as Chris Pike and Shawn Redhage bring you all the latest on the NBL along with three huge guests - Mitch Norton, Shawn Dennis and Mitch Creek.

Firstly, the co-hosts discuss all the latest news in #NBL20 including the Sydney Kings signing Deshon Taylor, the season-ending injury to Illawarra Hawks star Aaron Brooks and the Perth Wildcats addition of assistant coach Scott Roth.

Then there is a full rundown looking back on all the Round 4 NBL action with all the insight that can only become from one of the all-time greats of the league and the Perth Wildcats, Shawn Redhage.

Then there are the guests. First up is Perth Wildcats championship-winning point guard Mitch Norton ahead of his 200th game. He talks about how excited he is to reach such a milestone, reflects on the start to his career in Townsville and time in Wollongong, coming to Perth and being part of a championship, where he feels he can still get better this season and also provides an update on his beard.

Then there is a very special conversation with 2016 NBL Coach of the Year Shawn Dennis, now coaching in Japan for the Shiga Lakestars. It's a fascinating chat on adjusting to living and coaching in Japan, and the challenges and highlights of it, a reflection of SD's remarkable playing and coaching journey in the NBL and much more.

And finally is the Fourth Quarter segment this week where Shawn Redhage caught with South East Melbourne Phoenix captain Mitch Creek fresh off his stints in the NBA last season with the Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves.
