    Ivan Vicelich

    Ivan Vicelich

    The Godfather" of New Zealand football played his part in one of the greatest moments on this country's sporting history, when the All Whites qualified for the World Cup in 2009.


    New Zealand's 1-0 against Bahrain enough to send Ivan Vicelich and his side to a first World Cup in 27 years.


    But it wasn't all smooth sailing on the journey there. Sacked coaches, retirements, leading players injured and several crushing defeats preceded that night in Wellington. 


    Vicelich takes us behind the scenes into the mentality of that side, what motivated them and ultimately what led to an undefeated World Cup campaign in South Africa.

    Sean Marks

    Sean Marks

    15 years before Steven Adams was drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder, a tall, skinny kid from the North Shore of Auckland paved that path.

    Sean Marks was the 44th pick of the 1998 NBA Draft - the first New Zealander drafted by an NBA franchise.

    Marks played 13 years in the league for several clubs, winning a championship with the San Antonio Spurs in 2005.

    These days the Kiwi is making waves as an executive with the Brooklyn Nets, wheeling and dealing behind the scenes to turn that franchise around.

    Marks gives us a peek into how he made it to the NBA, why basketball was for him and how his career on the court, moulded his life off the court.
