Andrew Gaze, Alleged Racism, Basketball Australia Board

May 9, 2022

Eleon 10 mins ago 165 Australian basketball legend Andrew Gaze has exploded over Liz Cambage’s suggestion that she was unsupported and even injured during her time in the national setup, calling his comments ‘very offensive’, ‘extremely unfair’ ‘ and ‘disgusting’. The ex-Opal Cambage is back in the headlines after an allegation of a racist remark was confirmed by former national captain Jenna O’Hea. When asked on the ABC The foreigners program if Cambage had told the members of the Nigerian basketball team before the Tokyo Olympics, “go back to your third world country”, O’Hea replied, “everything is 100% correct”.

It’s very offensive,” Gaze told SEN radio. Andrew Gaze exploded over an incendiary suggestion from Liz Cambage about his time with the Australian basketball team. (Getty pictures) “I have been in a privileged position to be part of the Basketball Australia board for much of her time and have had a long conversation with her directly and unfortunately I have not been able to have that one-on-one conversation His agent must have been there. “We went through some of the issues that were clearly apparent issues of where (his) priorities needed to be, and there was a complete lack of understanding that, ‘well, maybe I’m wrong, but I can see another side’. “(She) refused to see that her behavior wasn’t there. “I don’t think it’s appropriate (to go into detail), but just to say it was a conversation that disappointed me. I couldn’t even have that conversation with her personally. “I was asked to do it, I was asked to do it as a basketball figure, someone on the board who understood the issues the board was facing and her. “It didn’t worry me at the time. ‘OK, I don’t care, I’m 100% transparent here, I’m trying to find a solution to the conflict that has arisen’.” Liz Cambage pictured during her time with the Opals. (Getty) The look was not done. “On top of that, Liz was engaging in behavior that in all reasonable judgment would have had significant repercussions,” Gaze added. “She was supported – not just by me, but by others along the way… To say she was not supported is unfair, it is extremely unfair, and I have a lot of sympathy and compassion for where she was at that time, and there may have been some confusion as to where (she) should be, her schedule, her schedule – all those things that are the. “But the bottom line (is) that she made decisions that didn’t support her teammates. Yet despite that, her teammates supported her during this time. “Now the problem is, in her mind, she didn’t think she was letting anyone down, and I’m talking about whether you show up to prepare to represent your country.” Gaze added that while Cambage may have had a tough time, that did not reflect Basketball Australia’s actions. “There may be times when she’s gone through some hardships. I don’t know what they are, but they could be there. I’m not saying they aren’t,” Gaze said. Why Liz Cambage Left Opals “But the suggestion on this particular incident and others that her teammates, coaches, Basketball Australia or whoever was not supporting her – it’s offensive. It’s offensive to people who are going out of their way to try to put in puts in a system where she can really perform at her best – and it takes two.” Gaze is a former Boomers captain whose passion for Australian basketball is highly regarded. “You don’t get paid to represent your country, or very, very little. It’s not your only source of income,” Gaze said. “It’s a matter of honor, it’s a matter of privilege, it’s a matter of a sense of responsibility, it’s about looking at your life and seeing how other people have provided you with a privileged opportunity to perform at the highest level… when you don’t respect that and, in fact, when you go the other way and say these people hurt me – that’s disgusting behavior on his part. “It’s offensive to me, it’s offensive to anyone who represents our country that this is their position.” For a daily dose of the best news and exclusive content from Wide World of Sports, subscribe to our newsletter by click here!
