The Sydney Kings have announced that film star, Air Bud will join the Kings during the NBL’s recently upcoming Disney Round.


Today the NBL announced that “The National Basketball League has joined forces with the world’s biggest family entertainment brand, The Walt Disney Company, to create the Disney Round for Australian fans”.  Shortly after, the Sydney Kings have revealed that Disney film star, Air Bud, will join the team for the round.


Sydney Kings’ coach, Andrew Gaze, spoke highly of the side’s new addition. “We are excited to have Air Bud join us later this month,” Gaze said. “Air Bud is a known performer at the junior level and will add spark to our side for the round.” It is believed that Air Bud has been keeping his match fitness up; however, he will train with the team in the week leading up to the match.

The coach spoke of ways in which the versatile wing will slide into the Sydney Kings’ system. “Air Bud is a ball mover,” Gaze said.  Air Bud is also an undersized, poor defender, which should mean a seamless inclusion into the Kings’ system this season.
