Is she about to be the best basketball player ever in the Australian Basketball HOF?

To me she is clearly the best Australian basketballer ever, so yes.

She may not be the pioneer of Aussie women's hoops (people like Michele Timms and Robyn Maher have that honor). But she is the unquestioned Australian G.O.A.T.

A more interesting debate involves determining who the second best-ever player is in the history of Aussie women's hoops and then #3, #4, and #5). Throwing some names out there:

-- Penny Taylor
-- Robyn Maher
-- Michele Timms
-- Sandy Brondello
-- Kristi Harrower

Maybe Maree Jackson, the first Aussie to be named an All-American. She led LSU to the AIAW final in 1977. The Australian U18 national championship trophy is named for her.

I know male and female comparisons get frowned upon but if anyone wants to see the closest thing to Jackson right now, it has to be Nikola Jokic. His game is a visual orgasm. He scores from everywhere on the court. He can score over his left and right shoulders. I've seen him score from behind the three-point line, flat-footed. The way he moves without the ball. His handle is WOW! There's so much more to his game than what I mentioned. You just have to watch him. He's having an amazing playoff debut.

I love watching Jokic and the Nuggets play. Rooting for them to make the Finals.
