It's like when a ranga has the surname Redhead, or when a farmer has the surname Farmer. I'm pretty sure we can all guess he has a blacock.

The other guy, Freeman, is coming Phillipines, which is the same place as Chris Williams yes?

Big Ranga could flourish with a new environment as well. I like the team they've put together.

I mean Phillipines might not be the greatest league but Freemans averages were, from memory 22 and 15? So even if its a half decent league then he's gotta have some talent.

From memory those averages are higher than what Rosell Ellis or Galen Young averaged in the same league. So looks good. I LIKE this team. They got what they want in Blalock, as his apg from d-league etc. show. Season tickets please!

William Anthony "Will" Blalock (born September 8, 1983 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American professional basketball player for the Townsville Crocodiles.

He usually plays the point guard position.

Blalock attended Iowa State University, and played for the Cyclones from 2003-2006, declaring eligible for the draft after his junior year.[1]
He was drafted by the Detroit Pistons in the second round with the last pick (60th overall) in the 2006 NBA Draft.

In the 2006-2007 NBA season he played in 14 games and averaged 11.9 MPG, 1.8 PPG, 1.1 RPG, and 1.2 APG.[2]

After playing with the summer league team of the Denver Nuggets, Blalock signed overseas with Hapoel Jerusalem, but was cut from there after several games.

In early 2008, Blalock was back in America, playing on the Anaheim Arsenal, the D League affliliate of the Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, and Los Angeles Clippers.

In July 2010, it was announced Blalock had signed to play with the Townsville Crocodiles in Australia for the 2010/11 season.

Excellent signing, provided mattic still doesn't consume alcohol at games. It'd be a dangerous, but undeniably easy slip of the tongue in a moment of excitement for him to scream out Bollocks, which to the uninfirmed may come across as offensive.

GB, could you find a bigger picture, please? I'm just trying to check out one of the blemishes on his face...

This is a top-notch signing indeed. He's an exciting player to watch too.

I wonder what the story was there? I didn't think the Israeli league was overly strong.

In my early Adelaide-escent years, I only knew of Whitehead, but dug deeper, put the squeeze on & other things surfaced. I wondered, what zit gonna come too?
I've grown out of it now.

As long as it's kept refrigerated, it'll be fine. Just keep an eye on the "Jews by Date".
