Champion DAMIAN MARTIN joins commentary team as NBL returns for new season tonight


Six-time NBL champion Damian Martin will join a star-studded commentary team for the 2020-21 NBL Season set to tip-off tonight.

Martin retired at the end of last season after winning six titles with Perth Wildcats and six Defensive Player of the Year awards. The Defensive Player of the Year award will now be known as the Damian Martin Trophy in his honour.
Martin will join experts including Andrew Gaze, Corey ‘Homicide’ Williams, Shane Heal, Liam Santamaria, Brad Rosen, Shawn Redhage, Cam Tragardh and Peter Hooley.
Dwayne Russell, John Casey, Lachy Reid, Matt Russell, Jack Heverin, Jenni Screen, Neroli Meadows, Louise Ransome, Jo Healy, Cam Luke and Jon Guarna will also be part of the commentary team.

The 2020-21 NBL Season will be broadcast live on SBS VICELAND, SBS On Demand, ESPN, SKY Sport and Twitch. It will tip off this Friday when the Adelaide 36ers play Melbourne United at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

Hungry Jack’s NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said:

“We are delighted with our broadcast partners and commentary team for the forthcoming season.
“Fans can expect a world class broadcast that provides in-depth analysis and quality entertainment across Australia, New Zealand and the rest of the world.
“The NBL enjoyed record broadcast audiences last season and we look forward to more strong growth this season as fans enjoy what is one of the best basketball leagues in the world outside of the NBA.”
