About: I am a huge fan of all sports but basketball has always seemed to mean that little something extra. Growing up in Australia initially limits my exposure to the game but I hope to one day watch a Chicago Bulls game from the press box at the United Center.

Favourite NBA Team: Would have to be the Chicago Bulls. I was always a massive MJ fan and I still support the team to this day.

Favourite NBA Player: Call me old fashioned but I am a massive fan of players from yesteryear. My favourite of all time would have to be Michael Jordan but I am also a huge supporter of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. In the current game I am a massive fan of the Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson as well as Blake Griffin and Lob City.

Favourite NBA Moment: I am a big fan of the dunks that could be classed as both dominant and disrespectful at the same time. Two stick out in my mind, one only recent and the other from nearly 20 years ago and they are DeAndre Jordan’s alley oop slam on Brandon Knight and Scottie Pippen’s dunk on Patrick Ewing in the 1994 Eastern Conference Semi Finals.
