By Request: Australian Basketball

Ed keeps asking about the state of Australian basketball. I know almost nothing about Australian basketball. Key facts — I once had a summer camp counselor who played basketball at Virginia Tech and claimed that though he wasn’t good enough to get drafted for the NBA when he graduated, he thought he might go play professionally in Australia. Arne Duncan, currently head of Chicago’s schools and Barack Obama’s choice to be Secretary of Education, used to play pro ball in Australia. Third, I think David Andersen from CSKA Moscow is Australian. Beyond that — I have no idea.
