We finally welcome Belfast man and the UK’s top basketball journalist Mark Woods onto the The Courtside Collective Podcast for a wide ranging discussion that spans from the Irish Superleague glory days right through to the present day.

Trust the process: The Sixers are still terrible

Ending 2016 with an 8-24 record, the Philadelphia 76ers are the joint worst team in the NBA.  They have won five games at home all season long (a tally matched by the Miami Heat, incidentally) and only three games on the road.  The only team that could make a good case for their being worse is the Brooklyn Nets, who are also 8-24 with a dreadful 1-16 road record.

Podcast Ep 17: Top 10 Moments in Irish Basketball of 2016

A special end of year Podcast this time as Niall and Mark take a look back on the year that was 2016 and run down what we see as the top 10 moments in Irish Basketball. Did we get it right? What did we miss out? Let us know through Twitter , Facebook and Snapchat.

 

Durant as a Warrior

The Independence Day move of Kevin Durant from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Golden State Warriors was the biggest free-agent move since the last one.  Ok, so it was a bigger deal than most of them.  A perennial MVP contender moving to a team that blew a 3-1 lead in the most recent NBA finals, their inability to achieve the elusive fourth victory costing them back-to-back titles.

Podcast Ep 16: Basketball’s Coming Home with Andy Gill & Aidan O’Shea

In this episode we discuss the fantastic news about the u18b Women FIBA European Championships coming to Ireland in the summer of 2017 with head coach of the u16 programme Andy Gill. How well can Ireland do and how much of an advantage is having the Championships at home?

 

We also have Mayo GAA star player Aidan O’Shea on to talk about why he came back to basketball and how the season is going with the Sligo All-Stars in the National League.

Ireland announces Pete Strickland

The signs were there after the Sino-European games, after the Hibernia team played in the FIBA EuroCup and, particularly, after the senior men’s team competed in the European Small Nations this past summer in Moldova: The Irish Senior Men’s Basketball team is back and now it has a new head coach, former George Washington University Assistant Pete Strickland. Strickland will hold the position for two seasons (2016/17 and 2017/18), culminating in participation in the FIBA Small Nations European Championships in 2018.
