Dellavedova’s story inspires the plot of a feature film

As if Matthew Dellavedova’s meteoric rise into the TV sets of NBA fans around the world after his Finals heroics couldn’t get an more wild, now there is set to be a feature film based on the Aussie’s exploits.

Well not entirely, but lets say, loosely based on his story, from basketball in regional Australia, to the bright lights of the NBA Finals. Yeah that does sound like a Hollywood movie.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

The life of Australian basketballer Matthew Dellavedova, who rose from rural Victoria to play in Wednesday’s NBA finals, is being turned into a Hollywood production.

The fictional story, based on Dellavedova’s rise, will follow the tale of three young Australian basketballers who are drafted to play basketball for a US college.

Role Models executive producer Jason Shuman has signed on to the project, which is being called Final Four, while The Bodhi Tree‘s Robert ‘Bobby’ Galinsky will act as screenwriter and executive producer.

Galinsky said the work would either be made into a feature film or a Friday Night Lights-style series.

The idea was concieved three years ago by young Werribee actor Josh Howlett, who was inspired by Dellavedova’s story after he was plucked from the Australian Institute of Sport to play US college basketball.

“The project is inspired by the real guys who went to Saint Mary’s College in San Francisco to play basketball.

“It won’t be Matthew’s life story or autobiography, but will be inspired by his exploits in Melbourne and overseas, and we’re meeting with his management in the next couple of weeks,” Galinsky said.

Regardless of the story flow of Final Four, it must end with the clip/reenactment of this game winner against BYU.

James Harden comes to Sydney for a holiday and plays H.O.R.S.E

James Harden is on holidays in Sydney, you guys.

Normally for NBA players, they like to go away for a couple of weeks, recharge the batteries and get as far away from basketball. However, apparently basketball never stops for James Harden.

During his vacation, he popped down today to the King George V Centre in Sydney and mucked around on the basketball court for a bit. Even playing some H.O.R.S.E with his friends.

H.O.R.S.E looked like it started to get a little crazy… He even attempted this shot:

Even though it’s just a bit of mucking around with mates, the fact that Harden, in mid-July still has a ball in his hand, only a few weeks after the end of the Rockets season is a good sign for next year, it shows that he’s still got that ‘on switch’ to remain around basketball during a time that most players aren’t even thinking about basketball.

Although, James, you’re in Sydney mate… The most beautiful city in the World! GO TO TARONGA ZOO OR DO THE BRIDGE CLIMB OR GO TO BONDI BASKETBALL CAN WAIT UNTIL JULY!

The Warriors plane is turnt up once again

It’s been three months in the making, but finally the Golden State Warriors lifted the lid on the OT Genesis CoCo ban.

I like to think this was their secret motivation to win the title, being able to sing their team plane song once again, with no consequences…..because you know…for the 72 hours after winning an NBA title, you can literally do whatever you want.

Enjoy in all its glory.

You already know we had to make the championship edition!!!! #Champs #DubNation
