New Brisbane Bullets import Vic Law had few complaints about spend his birthday in hotel quarantine – he was just happy to have a job again.
Law turned 25 last Saturday in a Sydney hotel room, saying it was one of his better days during his two-week quarantine period.
“A lot of my family and friends were calling me, (and) the hotel gave me a couple of beers to celebrate, so it was a good day,” said Law, who trained for the first time with his new Bullets teammates on Wednesday after arriving in Brisbane on Tuesday.

“(Quarantine) was well worth it. Coming from America seeing how COVID is affecting the country … it's’s just a weird year.
“A lot of players, myself included, just didn’t get picked up.
“The opportunities just didn’t present themselves but I’m really excited that this one did.
“There are a lot of good players in the States still looking for jobs.
“I had a couple of offers, Brisbane just seemed the best. It’s definitely one of the better leagues in the world. I’m just excited to be here.”
Chicago-born Law, who had signed a two-way contract with NBA club Orlando Magic in January, said it was up to him and Brisbane’s other new American import, Orlando Johnson, to “be better” than departed former star Bullets pair Lamar Patterson and Will Magnay.
“Hopefully this year, me and Orlando can take them (the Bullets) to the top,” Law said.
