I just returned to Perth after almost a week in Sydney for the launch of the NBL.
In eight years of my involvement with the Perth Wildcats and the NBL, I have witnessed numerous changes. Loss of clubs (Bullets, Razorbacks, Hunter Pirates, Singapore Slingers, South Dragons), different structures, owners, ownership models, boards and commissions.
At all times each step forward has been with good intentions. Not all of them have materialised as planned, but they have all resulted in improvements – most importantly survival and sustainability of the league itself.
