Basketball: Bullets' pair still helping each other out
Wednesday 01 October 1997
Bullets' American coach, Mike Finger, also adjusting to his first season in the Budweiser League with the help of wife Susie, does not underestimate how important it is to have familiar faces around.
"There are a lot of changes to get used to. Chris found that when he went to the States and now its the same for HL, myself and the other new guys. I know I'd find it hard to settle to the job if Susie wasn't here."
There is no doubt that Coleman and new American Reggie Kirk have settled quickly alongside the returning Americans Tony Dorsey and Fabulous Flournoy and the Barbadian Nigel Lloyd.
Bullets have an unblemished three-game start to the league. But on Saturday they are at home to London Towers, unbeaten after five, at the NEC while their regular home at the NIA is booked for concerts.
Fingers said: "London have so many weapons and so much depth. It will take a tremendous effort from us but we'll have a big crowd and we have to be excited by the challenge."
