Sydney Kings vs Dongguan Leopards: A Poem
Just got home from the game
So I thought I’d try my pen
And attempt to frame
When the Leopards entered the Lion’s den
Intimate Alexandria was the venue
Hanging with many banners
But unfortunately for Luo and Xingyu
As hosts the Kings forgot their manners
29-15 Sydney jumped out of the gate;
A margin too hard to redress.
Particularly with players as great
As debutant Josh Childress.
Watching his poise and hang-time,
It has become obvious early;
(Yes, I know it doesn’t rhyme)
Kendrick Perry’s a star clearly.
Despite his team’s unhappy score
It was great to see legend Brian.
The crowd gave him a roar;
One worthy of the Lion!
Goorj shouts at his men,
“Box out Angus Brandt!”
As he grabs rebound ten
But they just can’t
By half-time the margin was 22;
Many of them points in the paint.
Then the fouling out of Liu,
Was Brian’s next complaint.
Madge’s shooting continued the deluge.
And upon Garlepp you can always rely;
His numbers weren’t huge;
But sometimes stats lie.
The imports made the crowd grin;
Throwing down four alley-oops.
Final score: a 21 point win;
Man, I love the return of NBL hoops!
