ADAM Gibson's roller-coaster basketball career reaches another peak tomorrow when he plays his 250th match in the NBL.
The 26-year-old Launceston-born player said he was proud to reach the milestone after seven years in the national competition, which have seen him win two championships and have three financially troubled employers fold.
``I still remember my first NBL points _ it was a lay-up versus New Zealand,'' he said.
``But my biggest highlights are my championships with the Brisbane Bullets and South Dragons.''
Gibson's career also took him to Gold Coast Blaze before he joined Adelaide 36ers this season.
He was made co-captain and will reach his milestone in tomorrow'sntsfrinte visit to Cairns Taipans.
Gibson, originally of Cluan, told the club website he first dreamed of being an Olympian while playing as a junior at the Launceston Devils.
He achieved his goal in London last year, helping the Boomers reach the quarter-final where they went out to the eventual gold medallist the US.
``Being selected for the London Olympics hands down wins my best experience,'' he said.
``The Opening Ceremony, living in the village and all the games is something I'll never forget.''
Watched by parents Robyn and Geoff, the 190-centimetre guard, who also played in the 2010 world championships, enjoyed his best moment in the 106-75 win against host nation Great Britain when he sank two late three-pointers.
A former Hagley Farm and Prospect High student, Gibson was named NBL defensive player of the year in 2009.
Adelaide general manager Dean Parker congratulated Gibson on his milestone.
He said: ``250 NBL games is a wonderful achievement for Adam and we are glad that he is with the Adelaide 36ers as he celebrates this milestone and hope that he has another 250 games in the league.''
Adelaide played Cairns last Saturday when 5306 fans at Adelaide Arena watched the Taipans win by a point.
