Australia’s greatest ever basketballer – 2-time NBL Champion, 5-time Olympian and NBA Champion, Andrew Gaze.
Our discussion begins with Andrew’s formative years, literally surrounded by basketball and the influence of his famous father, Lindsay. We talk about Andrew’s early years in the NBL and representing Australia internationally with his close friends, Luc Longley, Shane Heal and Mark Bradtke. We cover his season playing college basketball at Seton Hall in America, delve into his NBA experiences and get his insight on the NBL of today. The conversation is also sprinkled with Andrew’s fantastic anecdotes.
