Australian basketball and the NBL is once again becoming a key pillar in the Australian sporting landscape. In 2015, businessman Larry Kestelman founder of the internet company Dodo, took control of the struggling league and has now overseen its transformation to the point where record crowds are being attracted to own homegrown basketball competition.
Melbourne United, formally and famously known as the Melbourne Tigers, are now for the first time under their new branding current NBL champions. After topping the ladder at the conclusion of the regular season, United took all before them throughout the finals series. Firstly sweeping the New Zealand Breakers 2-0 in the 3-game Semi Final Series. Then the big one. Melbourne defeated long-time rivals Adelaide 36ers in Game 5 of the 2017/18 Grand Final Series in front of their raucous home fans.
It was sweet relief for all those involved with Melbourne United. Entering the season as favourites, the pressure was to deliver a maiden championship under the United branding after not being able to handle the external pressure in previous seasons. Now that the monkey is off the back, United will be looking to continue their winning ways in 2018/19 as they attempt to go back-to-back in such a close and competitive league.
