I wonder how many GMs recently have been thinking ‘Hey, maybe it might be an idea for us to get an average Aussie basketball player with a bit of shit and vinegar in him for our roster too. Those guys seem to help way more than you’d expect.’
As a British person I know what Aussies are like in team sports only too well. I’m not sure Americans have realized yet, which only makes sense given that you lot don’t go up against Aussies in team sport very often. Get an Aussie in your team. Even if they’re not the most talented. They’ll compete like bastards, which’ll shame your more talented players into doing the same.
