Many hoops fans thought the NBL MVP was a two-horse race — but not Andrew Bogut. The Kings great reveals why Jaylen Adams deserves the award over Bryce Cotton.

Scott Roth has likened the physical semi-final between Melbourne United and Tasmania to the epic NBA battles between the ‘Bad Boy’ Detroit Pistons and Michael Jordan’s Chicago.
