Once upon a time, Australians in the NBA were a novelty. 1991 draftee Luc Longley was the first, and he flew the flag alone for many years. Six more Aussies - including Chris Anstey, Shane Heal and Andrew Gaze - would join Longley at times throughout the 90s, but not for long. It wasn't until Milwaukee drafted Andrew Bogut in 2005, that Australia produced another NBA mainstay. Bogut's selection truly opened the floodgates, as a further eighteen Aussies have appeared in the NBA since then.
