    So Rugby League was at its peak from 1989-1995 and Union was doing okay but no money and AFL was pointless but why were Sydneysiders into a shit game like Basketball ?

    I think you can contribute the popularity of Basketball to one man name Micheal Jordon.

    Basketball was massive in the early and mid 90s, especially NBA. They showed the NBA game of the week on FTA TV's on saturdays, I think it was on Channel 10.

    Sydney Kings were one of the hottest tickets in town. Wollongong / Illawarra team was also booming and the national comp was popular. Then the game went pay-tv exclusive and that was that.
