Scott Pape joins Eddie, Mick and Luke on Triple M's Hot Breakfast to talk tax as the June 30 deadline looms

It is that time of year, tax time, and as June 30 rapidly approaches, Scott Pape joins the Hot Breakfast with some trivia and tips.

  • 77% of Australians get money back.
  • The average Aussie claims around $2,000 in work related expenses.
  • An average tax refund is $3,630, according to the ATO

(Interestingly enough the average credit card balance is $3,200, so if you are one of the lucky ones who gets a return, maybe pay off the plastic first.)

UPDATE 11:00am

DEVELOPMENT - Andrew Bogut will not start in game 4! 

EARLIER: 

Triple M Hot Breakfast’s Seb Costello is in America for the NBA Finals and filed this report after speaking to Golden State Warriors’ Aussie star Andrew Bogut and coach Steve Kerr.

Seb managed to get a worldwide exclusive for Triple M with Andrew Bogut, who is doing no other media on game four game-day.

“I’ll just come out and be aggressive,” Bogut told Triple M.

“I’ve been a bit tentative the first couple of games.” 

Listen To The Full Interview Below:

 

Coach Steve Kerr says that Bogut hasn’t been at his best defensively but gave Triple M a definitive ‘yeah’ when asked if Bogut would be playing game four.

“He’s had a great year for us,” Kerr told Triple M.

“The last couple of games haven’t gone his way but that’s part of the playoffs you just have to respond, bounce-back and play.”

King James Backs Sir Delly Push

Triple M Hot Breakfast's Seb Costello puts the suggestion of a knighthood for Matthew Dellavedova to LeBron James

Triple M Hot Breakfast's Seb Costello puts the suggestion of a knighthood for Matthew Dellavedova to LeBron James.

They are Cleveland's unlikely dynamic duo or odd couple: LeBron James and Matthew Dellavedova.

In Cleveland they are also royalty.

James, after his sidekick Delly's heroic, perhaps legendary, game three performance in the NBA Finals says if Australia wants to bestow a knighthood on the point guard from country Victoria he will support it.

"Whatever that guy wants or needs, I'm all for it," James laughed after he was asked the question by Triple M Hot Breakfast's Seb Costello, you can hear the audio in the player above.

 

Dellavedova was extraordinary in Cleveland's 96-91 victory on Tuesday over the Golden State Warriors to take a 2-1 series lead and move just two wins from claiming the championship.

Hit by exhaustion, dehydration and severe cramping, the team's medical staff checked him into a Cleveland hospital so fluids could be pumped intravenously.

The Cavaliers had already lost NBA All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love earlier in the playoffs and on Tuesday there were fears shooting guard/forward Iman Shumpert could be lost when he was forced into the locker-room mid-game with a shoulder injury.

Dellavedova and Shumpert will play in Thursday's (Friday AEST) game four in Cleveland.

"I just cramped up a little bit and they thought the best form of recovery was to go to the hospital for a little bit, get an IV," Dellavedova, who participated in a light training and video session on Wednesday, told Seb Costello.

"So, I'm feeling pretty good."

Dellavedova ruled out any chance of sitting out, or having a reduced role in game four.

FULL AUDIO, SEB COSTELLO WITH MATTHEW DELLAVEDOVA:


"I told him I was going to limit his minutes and he said, 'No you're not'," Cavaliers head coach David Blatt said.

Dellavedova, who went undrafted in 2013 and was only initially signed to a $US100,000 guaranteed contract by the Cavaliers, logged 20 points, five rebounds and four assists in 38 relentless minutes on Tuesday.

He threw himself on the floor for loose balls, dived into the crowd, threw an alley-oop pass to James, hit key three-pointers, pulled off a Harlem Globetrotter-style circus shot and shut down the Warriors' best player Stephen Curry for the second consecutive game.

"I think he dove on the floor an NBA record six times last night," James said.

"Last night he was on the ground again after the game in the hospital so you can probably say seven times.

"He gives us everything he has and we all appreciate it as his brothers lining up beside him."

Blatt says he won't set a minute limit on Dellavedova in game four, but will closely monitor him.

"The tank is low and we're doing everything we can to fill it back up," Blatt said.

Dellavedova limited Curry to just three first half points.

Curry ended up with 27 points for the game, most coming in the final quarter when Dellavedova wasn't guarding the NBA MVP.

Curry admitted he has to play better.

"I know his strength and weaknesses and he knows mine and we are going to keep battling," Curry said.

"I hope I get the best of him over seven games.

"We'll work that out."

As good as James has been on the court - averaging 41 points in the first three Finals games - and as glowing as he has been about Dellavedova, the Cavaliers' captain needs a lesson on Australian sport.

"Delly comes from a rugby background," James, describing Dellavedova's toughness, said.

"If you guys have ever had an opportunity to watch a rugby game you see how tough it is.

"That's what it's about.

"He brings it all."

Dellavedova, of course, grew up playing Aussie rules in Victoria and is a Collingwood fanatic in the AFL.

Delly likely won't bother to correct his leader.

The dynamic duo have bigger things to deal with.
