Worcester Wolves: Thurman hoping to build on Wolves success

Image via Twitter
The 2013/14 season was a massive success for the Worcester Wolves, fighting for top spot in the BBL ladder and winning the BBL Trophy and play-offs.

The Wolves have lost Zaire Taylor to BBL opponents London Lions but will be hoping to continue last seasons successes. 

The Worcester side signed up Robert Thurman having been recommended to the team by former player Will Creekmore. 

Thurman said: "He [Will] spoke to me one day and said that he had a team I'd be interested in and how awesome it is to be in Worcester - he sold me on the idea immediately.

"I was born and raised in a military family, so i'm used to moving around often, so that shouldn't be an issue.

I'm expecting that the team won't rely on me but will need me to play big minutes, there will be pressure on me to perform early on."

Thurman has high expectations for the Wolves ahead of the new season with the Wolves.

He continued: "The overall goal for the team, is to win as many tournaments as possible, anything involving a championship win is what I want to have."

"I'm a very passionate player; I had a hard time last year as I don't like to lose! I will bring that passion and the will to win.

"I'm a team player, if winning games means I average 5 less points and 5 more rebounds, I'm alright with that, the end product is what i'm most interested in.

"It's set to be a competitive league, there are some good players out there."

The American recently played in Denmark and admits to another talent off the court.

He said: "My whole life, my second passion is singing, I like to do that on the side."

"[on singing at half-time] I'm not sure that would pan out, but I would always be interested in something like that."

Robert Thurman will be hoping to hit the right note when the Wolves tip off the new campaign away at the BBL ladder toppers Newcastle Eagles.

Chelsea and Man United stars clash in 2k18 showdown

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois proved he was a safe pair of hands once again, as he beat Timothy Fosu-Mensah (Crystal Palace, on loan from Manchester United), in the second semi-final of the NBA 2K18 Celebrity Gaming Tournament!
The Chelsea keeper, playing as the Boston Celtics, beat Fosu-Mensah's San Antonio Spurs 39-23.
It means he faces Arsenal defender Rob Holding in the final.
Courtois discussed his passion for the NBA after the game: “I don’t really have a team. I know a few players at the Lakers and at the Knicks, so I like to follow the players I really know well. I’m very excited to see Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers in London for the NBA London Game 2018 for example, I think it will be a great game and hopefully they will win as well.”
Fosu-Mensah then concluded by sharing his excitement for the NBA London Game 2018, “I’ve always wanted to see an NBA game and the London Game is going to be my first one ever, so I’m really excited to go. It’s going to be a grea…

Chelsea 'keeper Courtois downs Rob Holding on 2k18

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was too hot to handle as he won the NBA 2K18 Celebrity Gaming Tournament Final.
Courtois had beaten Crystal Palace stars Mamadou Sakho and Timothy Fosu-Mensah on the way to the final where he faced off with Arsenal defender Rob Holding.
Holding himself had seen off Arsenal teammate Nacho Monreal and England rugby star Owen Farrell to reach the final.
The Chelsea goalkeeper elected to play as the Golden State Warriors, with the Arsenal defender selecting the Cleveland Cavaliers, in a rematch of the last three years of NBA Finals. As in the previous rounds, NBA legend Gary Payton oversaw the contest. 
After an incredibly hard-fought match, it was Courtois who was crowned the Champion of the NBA 2K18 Celebrity Gaming Tournament, as his Golden State Warriors team sealed a 39-22 victory over Rob Holding’s Cavaliers, with the Belgian awarded a special NBA2K18 Championship ring to commemorate his victory.  
Following his win, Courtois compared the atmosph…

ROUTLEDGE: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it
I’m Daniel Routledge and for as long as I can remember I’ve been watching British basketball. I’m not quite as old as the league, but its close enough we could be siblings. We pretty much grew up together, I’ve seen the highs and the lows, the false dawns and the unnoticed successes. 
Much has been made in recent days about the future of the game in this country, so much so it’s got me thinking about the past.
Whatever your views about the road from here, allow me ten minutes of your time to re-live how we got here.
In the beginning
The first national league of basketball was formed in 1972, in those early days it was a largely amateur pursuit, played out in small sports halls. It was before I was born, but I’ve seen minutes of AGMs where players were reprimanded for not personally selling enough tickets!
By the end of the decade, the structure became a bit more professional and as the 1980s began,the popularity started to boom. …
