The Dribble: Ex-Perth Wildcats coach, Toronto Raptors assistant Trevor Gleeson and WA teenager Anthony Gomes

The West Australian’s basketball enthusiast Craig O’Donoghue hosts the revamped The Dribble podcast, joined by special guests to talk everything NBL, WNBL and overseas.

Five-time Perth Wildcats championship coach Trevor Gleeson joins The Dribble from Canada to provide us with an inside look at life as an assistant coach at the Toronto Raptors.

Trevor also discusses the challenges of professional sport in a part of the world where COVID-19 is prevalent and how he’s staying in touch with goings on in Australia.

PLUS WA teenager Anthony Gomes speaks to us from America where he has spent the past three years chasing his basketball dreams. Gomes is part of the same Spire Academy basketball program that helped to develop LaMelo Ball.
