NBA WEEK: CP3 can truly become NBA 'Point God' if he leads Suns to breakthrough title

it wouldnt be the be all and end all but it’d be a nice cherry on top of his career and remove that nagging “oh but he never won a title” counter argument for those who say he’s not one of the greats. Won’t be happening this year though

that didn’t end well for Phoenix. CP3 looks like he will remain on the best players to never win a ring list

truefacts but Cleary appears to have the best chance of any of the current crop – it may never be broken

How Cleary’s following in Cameron Smith’s footsteps … and how he can break his records

you’ve got to be confident to be as good as Joey was – it’s weird that he’s the only halfback in the Immortals when every 2nd individual award seems to go to players in that position. Thurston & Smith are guaranteed future Immortals but Peter Sterling should be already & Darren Lockyer will probably be next cab off the rank

Jason Martin and his flowing mullet released a song in the early 90s and Anthony Mundine also had a crack at a rap song which u will probably struggle to find these days

Furner was like the Fonz, nobody ever saw him fight but everyone knew not to start one with him

Jamie Goddard could definitely fight for a little fella as one superstar famously found out in Origin

Andrew01, the Kiwi one was tough but Freeman being first Dally M Medal winner just got him over the line. Ruben Wiki, John Lomax and Quentin Pongia could have easily got this 1 or Matthew Ridge although his Warriors years weren’t a patch on what he did with Manly

dfenda, Terry Lamb got his mention in Part 1 as the player who sums up the Bulldogs in the 1990s. He was a very good player but his best value was as a support player, Cliff Lyons had the edge over him and everyone else when it came to sleight of hand wizardry

he had a couple of years in the mid 90s during the forgettable Sydney Tigers era. He was much better in his first couple of stints, it’s a shame we didn’t get to see more of him in his prime Down Under

Roy Masters has written a great piece about Royce and his fundraising efforts – well worth a read https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/age-just-a-number-that-s-how-royce-rolls-20220509-p5ajpx.html

i highly recommend it … it even makes u think about Mariah Carey in a whole new light!

what about Mullllllins?

Sydney should have one football stadium in the 40K ballpark, it can’t just have a bunch of 25K seaters and an 80K option at Homebush

Build it and they won’t come: Why Sydney doesn’t deserve more stadiums

I thought Albo was a Souths fan and the other guy goes for Cronulla

Build it and they won’t come: Why Sydney doesn’t deserve more stadiums

pretty much every team now claims to have built or is building a “centre of excellence”. It’s like when Shelbyville built a mini mall so Springfield had to build a bigger mini mall

Build it and they won’t come: Why Sydney doesn’t deserve more stadiums

u speak sense – suburban grounds are great when you’re there and the sun is shining but if the weather is poor or you don’t time your run perfectly to the toilet or the food/drinks outlets, it can be a real downer

Build it and they won’t come: Why Sydney doesn’t deserve more stadiums

most fans don’t think like you unfortunately Adam and they want silver service both getting to a ground and leaving it whether by car or public transport. Parking has always been a problem at Kogarah although it has eased now that Sizzler is no longer attracting thousands to the area

Build it and they won’t come: Why Sydney doesn’t deserve more stadiums

georgraphically that makes sense Sammy but it’d be like when Cronulla were playing there the last couple of years – it’s enemy turf and it doesn’t sit right with many of the fans. Dogs may as well play at CommBank Stadium even though Parra have pretty much claimed it as their own

Utah would gladly take him back – they dumped the rest of his contract because he’d torn his ACL for a young prospect in Nickeil Alexander-Walker but he hardly played. There are a lot of moving pieces at the Jazz in the off-season with Mitchell, Gobert and Snyder but they should bring Joe back as a free agent

NBA WEEK: Ben Simmons' to-do list: Fire whoever's handling his PR, then get to work this off-season

Hard to argue with any of that – he has a mountain of work to do in order to restore his reputation. A good start would be speaking publicly rather than hide while his minders put out explainer stories to media outlets which do more harm than good

NBA WEEK: Ben Simmons' to-do list: Fire whoever's handling his PR, then get to work this off-season

Hopefully Joe gets a deal mid next-season with a contender, if not the Jazz should definitely get him back – they sorely missed his presence both on the court and in the locker room

a good movie or a soap opera? It’d make a great 30for30 doc. Nothing but respect for the Grizz but it’s hard to see winning more than a couple of games v Golden State
