The door is once again slightly ajar for Ben Simmons to become Australia's first-ever NBA All Star - but this time, the fight is being taken all the way to Federal Parliament.
The Philadelphia 76ers' No.1 draft pick - who bookmakers Neds have as the $1.22 favourite to be named rookie of the year - missed the initial extended squad, then was overlooked when Washington Wizards player John Wall was ruled out with an injured knee.
He thinks he's an All-Star, but he has been passed over four times in the last three weeks on injury replacements.
"He's already an National Basketball Association superstar, breaking first-year records held by greats of the game like Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson".
Everton tracking possible summer replacement for Allardyce
Former England manager Allardyce, 63, replaced Ronald Koeman late a year ago , signing an 18-month contract. It is something we have to try and turn around.
After going viral with his rant on why Ben Simmons should've made the All-Star game on Thursday (AEDT), the league office came back and announced that Kemba Walker would replace Kristaps Porzingis in L.A.
Someone check on Tim Watts.
"The nine Australians in the National Basketball Association this season include indigenous Australians, immigrants and refugees and show that we are the most successful multicultural nation on earth", he said. However, his response on Thursday to a tweet that shamed the National Basketball Association for choosing Walker over Simmons was fairly ambiguous.
Simmons was certainly a candidate as a replacement.
Plane carrying 71 crashes in Russian Federation , likely killing all on board
Initial information by Russian news agencies inform that 65 passengers and 6 crew members were on board. The Russian authorities later confirmed the crash and said they had found the fragments of a plane.
"In a record breaking rookie year for the Philadelphia 76ers, Ben is now averaging almost 17 points, eight rebounds, seven assists in a game".
"The fact that compatriot Jingling Joe Ingles has also been left out of the three point competition despite now sitting third on the league in three point percentage makes me think there's some kind of anti-Australian conspiracy going on at league head office at the moment", he said.
"If you thought that Australia was angry about 'The Simpsons versus Australia TV episode, you ain't seen nothing yet, Yanks", he said.
