This week's edition of Hoops Heaven's Basketball Hustle is packed full of all the news, reviews and previews of the NBL action from the 2019/20 season on top of a special interview with Adam Gibson along with an extended Q and A segment with The Scoring Machine Shawn Redhage.
The episode begins with co-hosts Chris Pike and Shawn Redhage breaking down all the latest news from #NBL20 including the ejection of Sydney Kings coach Will Weaver, Shawn's thoughts on the current unsportsmanlike interpretation, the arrival of Glen Rice Jr at the New Zealand Breakers and what the Illawarra Hawks need to do and the future of LaMelo Ball. There's then a full rundown of all the Round results.
Up next is the Interview of the Week with 419-game NBL veteran, two-time championship winner and London Olympian Adam Gibson of the South East Melbourne Phoenix. He discusses everything from being back in Melbourne and how unexpected his departure from the Brisbane Bullets was, how well the Phoenix are now run, how far Mitch Creek has come, the challenges of living away from his wife and his post-basketball thoughts.
Then for the first time, we opened the show up to our listeners who sent in some fascinating questions for Shawn Redhage. There was everything covered from his thoughts on flopping, his Mark Worthington rivalry, his toughest opponents and he rated two NBA greats ahead of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. Other topics covered included why he didn't give Greg Hire the chance to dunk and plenty more things to give an insight into his remarkable career.
The show wraps up with a full preview of the Round 6 NBL action with Shawn's breakdown and tips.
