The Tissot VIP NBA Viewing Party at QT Rooftop was simply epic. Melbourne as a sporting capital is crazy about basketball and NBA. The organisers went all out with a special event with NBA stars, celebs and influencers, a special court on the QT Rooftop, team caps, amazing food and wine and more.

Fox Sports interviewing Joe Ingles.
Both Bogut and Ingles have had personal experience playing alongside the Cavs and Warriors and were able to comment on strategies, and strengths and weaknesses first hand. It was a fascinating insight. As Andrew Bogut said, if LeBron James has a bad day the Cavs will probably lose but if Curry or Durant have a bad day there's a few other megastars who will punish you.
Wagyu with sticky sauce was delicious.
