The other thing Barlow made abundantly clear was that Andersen made a conscious choice to play in Europe rather than pursue an NBA career earlier, despite being drafted by Atlanta back in 2002. “To put that comment about him being the best player in Europe into perspective. That was at a time when guys were choosing to be in Europe rather than the NBA because they were getting paid way more. It was around the time [Josh] Childress gave up huge money in the States to sign in Greece.”

Australia have drawn first blood in a physical opener to the FIBA Oceania Championship, weathering a Corey Webster storm to prevail 71-59 in front of a 16,000 strong crowd at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Saturday. A Matthew Dellavedova (15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists) burst in the second term put the Boomers in front for good, while the late play of Patty Mills (17 points, 4 assists) and David Andersen (17 points) helped the hosts secure an important 12-point edge.

David Andersen has a master plan for the coming year and it involves a FIBA World Cup medal and a return to the NBA. The 34-year-old centre will enter his fifth major tournament when the Boomers tip-off their World Cup campaign against Slovenia in Spain in the early hours of Sunday morning. After a hiatus in the second half of last year to rest his body, Andersen played the end of the European season with SIG Strasbourg in the French league and is primed to play a key role for the Boomers where he will start at power forward and be a major cog in the team’s offence where his shooting and poise will be needed.
