A tough NCAA team V an unmotivated NBA team would result in the NBA winning 99% of the time. Sure upsets happen in sport but it's a rarity.

Thanks brothers! The
I've got a rugby league tournament this weekend. I got selected to play for the 'Australia' team for the All Stars comp this weekend for South Australia against the Indigenous/Pacific Island South Australia team.

We had training today.
Sprints-
30mx5
50mx5
The rest was drills and setting up plays. I don't use a GPS but no doubt I would've covered at least 3 kilometres in jogging and intermittent sprints since the drills and plays went for 2 hours. The comps on this Sunday.

Elite NCAA teams are really not that far off from NBA teams on a bad/demovitaed night. 82 games.... have u seen how some nba teams look on a bad night? esp an old team that has given up and saving it for next game?

obviously if the NBA team went all out they would crush.

Elite NCAA teams have a couple of great players. NBA teams have ALL great players. It's a chasm in depth, which makes the difference.

Duke could beat any NBA team thats having a bad day.... FACT.

If Duke played the Cavs tomorrow, Cavs would win by 50pts and Kevin Love would break Wilt's single game points record.

In 2002 the Sturt Sabres (local amateur basketball club playing in the ABL team equivalent to a Big V Team) played the Arizona Wildcats who made the Final Four of the NCAA National Championships in 2001. Arizona won 109-98 over Sturt in 2002 featuring future-NBA players in Channing Frye, Luke Walton, Will Bynum & Salim Stoudamire. I saw that game in person because it was held at the Pasadena basketball stadium and I was playing for Sturt in U14's at the time.

If a top NCAA team beats an amateur Australian team by 11 points they would get thrashed by an NBL team, let alone a team from the NBA!

Assessment Day-
The Assessment Day started at 7:45 this morning.

Medical-
First I had a medical where I had a blood test done and a physical examination where I was stripped down to my underwear and had a series of tests done including a testicular check. I had to give a full history of all my medical conditions and hospital visits, which I did. They are now chasing up hospital reports from when I broke my leg and my arm when I was 11 and 14 respectively. I had a hearing test, which I passed. I passed the eyesight test but unfortunately I failed the visual test for colors. I've got color perception problems (mild form of color blindness, which apparently affects 8% of the male population. As a result I failed my medical test for infantry but was able to continue with the recruiting process because my second preference was combat working as an Artillery Gunner.

Psychological-
They gave me a questionnaire to fill out, which had about 30 questions on it where you tick either 'Yes' or 'No'. It was straightforward questions asking about mental state, family mental health history, childhood etc. I got asked about why I wanted to join the army and my motivation. I actually applied for the Army back in 2010 but I withdrew my application at the time so I got questioned about it. I said that at the time I was studying at uni and also re-thought the prospect of being sent away interstate and committing 4 years of my life. But then the psychologist said "but there was another reason wasn't there?". So I answered truthfully and just explained that at the time I was facing court for a few charges  and had to go into very specific detail about all the charges and what was going on in my life at the time. I answered them honestly and went through all the details and took full accountability for everything and explained that I had no convictions and had to explain why I thought that was etc. It's not really a conversation that I like having and I thought I was going to get rejected. However, the Psychologist passed me and said that it would now be up to the Defense Interviewer to see whether I'd be accepted or not.

Defense Interview-
It was a great interview. I'm not a great interviewer as I get nervous and wear my heart on my sleeve but it was easy to build rapport with the interviewer. The psychologist spoke to the interviewer prior to my interview and they also had all my background history but the interviewer congratulated me on my integrity. The rest was easy just asking about myself, why I wanted to join, my knowledge about the role. After the interview finished I had to sit outside for 5 minutes and I got called back in and he asked me how I went and what I could do to improve, which I did. Then he congratulated me and said that I had been accepted as an Artillery Gunner and as soon as I pass the Fitness Test I'll be enlisted.

Cliffs-
I got accepted  :D

Reading, Books, & Sheeit / Re: Book Journal

Incredible book! Karl Marlantes is a very smart man and articulates his war experiences brilliantly.

Review from Amazon-
In 1968, at the age of twenty-three, Karl Marlantes was dropped into the highland jungle of Vietnam, an inexperienced lieutenant in command of a platoon of forty Marines who would live or die by his decisions. Marlantes survived, but like many of his brothers in arms, he has spent the last forty years dealing with his war experience. In What It Is Like to Go to War, Marlantes takes a deeply personal and candid look at what it is like to experience the ordeal of combat, critically examining how we might better prepare our soldiers for war. Marlantes weaves riveting accounts of his combat experiences with thoughtful analysis, self-examination, and his readings—from Homer to The Mahabharata to Jung. He makes it clear just how poorly prepared our nineteen-year-old warriors are for the psychological and spiritual aspects of the journey.
