How Bullets guard Jason Cadee dodged death to fulfil his NBL dream

Bullets guard Jason Cadee has overcome plenty of challenges to fulfil his NBL dream – but none bigger than this shocking accident.

Jason Cadee still has visions of the day he dodged death.

Eleven years have passed since Cadee was involved in car accident on the M7 motorway in Sydney, but the memories remain.

The then Bankstown Bruins guard was driving home from training when a semi-trailer had veered out of its lane and pushed him off the road.

Cadee’s car went into a spin and parked itself at right angles across one of Sydney’s busiest highways.

In an instant, he was crumpled against the middle console of the car, leaving him trapped for 90 minutes, and fearing his time on this earth was finished.

“Anyone else probably dies on that day and somehow I didn’t,” Cadee reflected.

“That is one moment that will always stick with me.

“The moment of seeing the truck coming and thinking, ‘this is it – it is all done’.

“I was lucky I didn’t die on a day when I probably should of.”

Thankfully, Cadee lived to fight another day, although he was left with a broken pelvis.

The injury forced him to delay his NBL debut with the now defunct Gold Coast Blaze and withdraw from the Boomers squad.

All of that matters little now, because Cadee has a blessed life as professional basketballer, a husband, and a father to two kids – including recently born baby girl, Scarlett Leni.
