With the 2014/15 NBL season fast approaching, things are starting to heat up down under. With just under a week until season tip-off, we preview the Sydney Kings. Last Season After a solid season last year, the Kings finished just outside the playoff picture with a 12-16 win-loss record. The additions of Sam Young and Cody Ellis couldn’t quite get the squad over the hump, with the Shane Heal coached side missing out on fourth spot to the Wollongong Hawks. This season should be a whole new ball game as management changed the direction of the team when they hired new coach Damian Cotter. The NSW state and now Australian women's coach, along with Sydney fans, can expect plenty of excitement in the Kingdome this season with all their new additions.
