Craig Bradhsaw is emerging as one of the top..
..players in the Australian NBL where he is leading his Brisbane Bullets in its quests for record breaking new highs. A 20th straight victory on their home court by the Bullets would equal the NBL record set by the Adelaide 36ers of 1985-1986. No top-level Queensland sporting team has been on such a streak of home ground dominance since the late '70s. Bradshaw is just five games into his NBL career but is already proving a versatile force as a scorer in the paint and with a pure three-point shot.
Better still, he rips into his rebounding work which is the unfashionable dirty work that the Bullets must start emphasising to win back-to-back titles. The beauty of the 210cm Bradshaw's arrival at a club with such depth is that he has time to find his feet without the demands of being an instant 45-minutes-a-game match winner. He played just 21 minutes against Singapore last Sunday for his season-best 22-points. "We've got the luxury of bringing Craig along slowly. He's getting his confidence and finding his place in the team," coach Joey Wright said.
