THE Travis Trice and Cairns Taipans an­i­mos­ity heated up this week.

Ev­ery­one says it is happy fam­i­lies be­tween the two but this ex­change may prove oth­er­wise. The club posted a photo of Trice with cur­rent Taipans skip­per Cameron Glid­don at the NBL Blitz, with the cap­tion “Cam Glid­don poses with a new fan at this year’s Blitz”.

Pretty harm­less, you would think, but the Trice fam­ily did not seem too happy about it.

“This is the dis­re­spect the Cairns Taipans show to their 2017 MVP ... and they won­der why he did not come back,” Trice’s dad com­mented on the photo. It did not stop there.

Trice’s USA-based agent Ara Var­ta­nian, of Var­ta­nian Sports Man­age­ment, also chimed in.

“It was a nice pic­ture ru­ined by a neg­a­tive post. I ex­pect more from the NBL. Glad we are with the Bris­bane Bul­lets this year,” he said.

The first proper game be­tween Bris­bane and Cairns can­not come around fast enough.
