Aron Baynes has written his own piece of NBA history, scoring 37 points — the most points ever by an Australian in a single NBA game — as his Phoenix Suns beat the Portland Trail Blazers.

Baynes, starting in place of centre Deandre Ayton, made a career-high nine 3-pointers — five in the first quarter alone — and added 16 rebounds and two blocks to his scoring onslaught.

isnt simmons our 2nd mens player to pull out?
Cabbage still going after her rant.
We have also "lost" some other contenders in other sports as well including swimming..

meanwhile a 37year old Canadian womens player is making waves.
Tokyo has said athletes and coaches, no family, no exceptions.
She is however moaning that as she has a young kid and is breast feeding they should exempt her hubby and her kid ...she says its unfair that she has to choose to play....or not.
