Can't Hardly Wait

In just over a week, the 36ers will be starting their quest to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. That doesn't sound like a long time ago, but it does when you recall it was the year.....

 -President Obama was inaugurated

 -Capn' Sully landed a plane in the Hudson River

-Tiger Woods announced he was taking leave from golf for various reasons.

-Brett Maher played his final game

Yep, it was a long time ago.

The lineup we'll trot out for opening night will be quite different from any we've ever assembled. Rather than going for the tried-and-failed route of 2 imports, Marty Clarke will go for one import (who'll come off the bench) and a "twin towers" set-up. At least it's different. I'm especially looking forward to seeing how Cadee goes at the point, CJ Massingale fits in and the rise and rise of Mitch Creek (pictured).

Adelaide's first up opponent is Melbourne, one of their great foes. This game should be a cracker as Melbourne's lineup features two new imports, a new coach and plenty of big bodies to test out Schensch and DJ. Oh and our ex-captain and 4 time MVP Adam Ballinger is on their roster too. I can't wait.

 I'll be doing updates live from the game (when I remember) and putting up a game report a few hours after the match. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter and join in the talk.
