Heck, I'm still flabbergasted as to how an NBA player can miss 25 shots in a game

Im staying optimistic and hoping he is a Lisch, DeVries type, who are good NBL imports,

his college numbers are solid, not great but solid, Will Blalock went to the same college had similar overall numbers and was a decent NBL import, so i hope he can be of similar standard.

we are getting him for min salary so cant expect a stud, all i ask is that Marty plays him atleast 20 mins per game and gives him a chance to perform.

Welcome to the team Scott, hope you get a chance to play and do well and make a great career for yourself.

Anyone know if he will be in for the Breakers game on the 28th?

It is pretty ironic that in Europe this guy when playing less then 20 minutes (which he will be playing for the sixers) he shot 20% from 3 point range, yet CJ gets let go for shooting better then that.

I hope he turns out to be a Lisch type but from what I see is that it shows more evidence that CJ was used as a scapegoat by Clarke.

When is everybody going to realise that CJ didn't get cut because he wasn't what they wanted.. It was because Marty and Radford disliked the guy especially the latter... Hence replacing him with a similar (if not less talented player)
If true just makes them look even more stupid IMO

Watching some clips of him seems to have a Ben Madgen type game. I would be happy with that, as long as he he is aggressive. Need someone who can hit the three but also penetrate and finish or dish. If he brings that I would be happy with this signing. But time will tell.

Wow. Safe to predict another dud signing. 6'3" SG who can't create, is not overly athletic and doesn't appear to be a lock down defender.

Clarke's way of taking revenge on the fans who want him sacked...making things even more unbearable. Is he taking the piss?

This bloke wouldn't get a SEABL import position.

So depressing.

Singlets if they want a cheap import, that u don't expect much of get willie Farley back. Least at 50 yrs old he can still create his on shot n brings some excitement. I think it's more frustration with Marty, we have one of the most talented rosters in the nbl, can clearly see we need an athletic guy who can penetrate the lane because apart from gibbo nobody else can and he goes and signs this guy. I'm not expecting a expensive import just one that fits the teams needs!

re: 36ers new import: Scott Christopherson?

Christopherson was playing for the bottom team in the VTB United league, the best in Europe outside the Euroleague. He only played five games, so I would take too much from that stint.

His first one he tore a decent Russian team (ie NBL standard) a new one with 16p on 5/7 and 2/2 3p. After that his minutes and shot attempts dropped away.

I havent watched any of their games but in Europe that can happen to guys who struggle to get the team defence or are just bad defenders.

I highly doubt he will be at the level of Lisch or a fit Devries, who is the third leading scorer in Spain. He could be similar offensively to Lisch straight out of college though.

Should be a step up on Massingale at least and has the benefit of coming down half a step in standard instead of trying to go up 1.5 steps.

Best of luck to him. What's he or the fans got to lose.

A paid trip to Australia in summer and a quick visit to google would have given him a pretty good idea that Adelaide is a transit lounge for professional basketballers. Enjoy the buffet, the Sixers really should be sponsored by Adelaide Airport or the Department of Immigration.

As fans we get a new player to chat about, get excited by his first game and then slowly watch him get less and less minutes and feast on the innuendo about why he can't deliver the way he did in his first game.

We've seen enough of the import carousel to make an educated guess whether or not he'll be here next season, but as always I liike happy endings so hopefully I'm wrong.

As soon as Creek went down surely they needed an athletic 2/3 who can get to the basket and create.

When we need a Christopherson he gets a Winder or Howard and now he does the opposite.

If we were going to go a 6'2" guard why not go for Homicide Williams who contacted the 36ers and indicated he wanted the spot.

Exciting, can get to the basket and a previous league MVP.

I wouldn't have signed Williams as I would have signed a SG/SF but just pointing out that if we weren't going for need then there were far better options available within our budget.

Indeed this guy isn't an upgrade on Massingale and we could have avoided the PR disaster from his sacking and we probably would have beat Perth and Townsville if we had him.

Unbelievable!

re: 36ers new import: Scott Christopherson?

Just watched a half of one of his games. The big issue appeared they were trying to use him as a PG when he is an SG.

Has a decent handle as an SG so he can help against presses which is very handy in the NBL, but doesnt have the speed or instincts of a PG.

He can create his own shot though and has a nice stroke (40%+ 3p in college and 50% in VTB league). His defence is ok but he will have to pick it up against the level of guards here. He is definitely a rookie, plays young.

It seems to me the 36ers have gone for someone who can give them what they thought Massingale would be able to. His pedigree is good it's just a matter of whether he can produce.

So, assuming this is the guy, it seems safe to say that he's white - which may be significant, given some reported comments and attitudes - and that his recruitment is not about bringing initiative or excitement to the team or fans.

While that is sad for said team and fans, I guess it ensures the coaches will be able to continue micro-managing plays on a pass-by-pass basis without having to worry about a player wanting to display some initiative or actually try to spark the team, lift the crowd or win matches.

Seems to me that in turn means we are likely to continue seeing the point guard standing in the middle of the court waving his arms trying to get players into positions they seem to have no idea about or don't want to be in.

From the looks of Christopherson, and if the requirements are for a player that can score and create for himself, I would have stuck with Massingale.

Massingale would have been serviceable but not the 6ers saviour.

I think fans should not expect the world of Christopherson. Hope the plays aren't too complicated for him to pick up in weeks.

I haven't seen enough of Christopherson to go and condemn his signing before seeing him play. But from the couple of YouTube clips I've seen he has good range and a good shot.

I'm prepared to see how he plays with Adelaide under Marty Clarke before passing judgement on him. And on that note I hope he turns out to be one of the better import players we've had here in Adelaide.

i was expecting a 6'5 2/3 but if this guy can give us some consistent outside firepower options then that bodes well for the rest of the season.

Guys, seriously? Do you want the 36ers to fail?

Christopherson hasn't even landed in the country yet and immediately he's a dud...

I'm just as frustrated with the team's performance thus far as anyone else, but bitching on a forum about a player nobody has ever had a decent look at is just retarded.

In all likelihood, Marty probably has a better idea of how good Christopherson is than any of us. If Marty's wrong, and he is a dud, then it will take a big effort from Gibbo, Petrie, Johnson, Weigh etc to make finals.

And if we don't make finals: Marty will be gone by next season. Be happy.

Criticizing is easy. Take the high road, come out to the 6ers-Breakers game this week and hope for the best.

It's up to the players (and coaches) to win games, but it's up to us to keep the club alive. So do it.

Dayumm that list of imports is horrible. I wish we could have a better hit percentage on our imports, similar to when Smyth was coach. Mee, Brooks, Farley, Rychart, even Garrison knew his role and fitted in on the team.

My criticism is not that of Christopherson but why we would go a 6'3" SG/PG (who will turn into a 6'1" SG in a PGs body as soon as he's off the plane) when a blind man can see we need a 6'6" SG/SF.

In all seriousness just give Daly a proper crack. Even Doyle is a heck of a player. See if he can give us some speed and instant impact off the bench.

Also from a business standpoint we've lost the opportunity to get a high flying import who can add some excitement and sell some tickets. Creek out and Christopherson in makes us arguably the most boring team in the league. Can anyone point out a less exciting team?

Does ownership get a say in import selection or does Clarke have full discretion?

Cost.

6'6" SG's for the most part cost more than an undersized 6'3" SG.

Firstly compare apples with apples. Clarke v Smyth is stupid, different era, different salary cap and still Smyth at the end of his era copped crap and people wanted him gone.

Secondly all teams have had a high turnover of imports not just Adel which IMO is a reflection of the reduced salary cap and the abiltiy to recruit and keep better quality at the moment.

Thirdly how about we give this guy a chance before bagging him. It seems everyone wants success but wants to complain and hate on the club more.

You can't dismiss the power of the Internet in the modern era. It is a lot easier for players to advertise themselves to the world. Hence the player is searching a larger field now for their next gig and coaches don't need to look that hard with tape and scouting reports everywhere to choose from.

Seriously, do some of you actually want the 36ers to fail? Some people here seem to have Christopherson marked as as a dud before they've even seen what he can or can't do.

I'm not saying the club has made the right choice of player, but I'm not saying they've got it wrong either. I'm at least prepared to give the guy the benefit of the doubt and see how he plays with the 36ers before adding him to Marty Clarke's growing list of failed imports.

The team needs an athletic 2/3 or even Williams who can get to the rim (Williams wanted min salary) instead the club goes and gets a shooter, who might be a good player who knows? But not what we need hence all the hate!

I also believe that we need someone who can drive and dish. We also need a reliable outside shooter so that the defence can no longer sag off their player and clog up the middle negating our bigs. Maybe, just maybe one of our problems have been attended to.

I too will be considering what to do with the season ticket that I have religiously purchased since 1985.

I think Marty will do to this import what he does with the majority of his imports which is tell them to stand in the corner and wait for the three point shot. Which sounds like a good plan in this instance cos it looks like scott can actualy shot 3's but then again it looked like CJ could shot a 3 before he got here too.

So many people on here are such shitheads. You ego-maniac fuckers just need to wait and see before making ridiculous predictions. Look at his 3pt shooting percentages in his college career. If he doesn't have good numbers in whatever European country he was playing in, maybe he is a standup shooter who didn't have the facilitators that he did in college.

Corin Henry is a PG. At least Heal got that right.

If you think a team with 4 PGs, 1 SF, 1 PF and 3 Cs is balanced and praise worthy then by my guest.

If you don't want criticism, feedback or constructive feedback then why visit Hoops SA? Go to www.disney.com

SA basketball fans have always been knowledgable and passionate. When we see something we don't like we voice it. Would prefer that to other teams who don't have enough fans to support a forum or ongoing financial viability.

Whether you love it or hate it, Adelaide fans will crucify a coach, management if they picked Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan. No point complaining. That is how it is.

It's not personal against Clarke. When Smyth failed to go hard enough after Newley and Ingles he to was criticised. Given he had won 3 championships with the 36ers I would argue he was shown less mercy than Clarke by the fans...especially given his failure to sign them hasn't proven as costly as first imagined given they have spent so long in Europe.

Also, if you think the fans on this forum are unduly harsh then I would say that the reason that the criticism has gone from the odd Bronx cheer to a thunderous stampede is because the owners have failed to act. If the necessary change had been made then there wouldn't be petitions, Facebook pages and 500 threads on this site wanting Clarke gone.

In business most owners step up to meet their clients/fan base before things get to such a level.

Each game Clarke continues and with each personnel decision that he makes the owners might as well put up a big "F U' on the scoreboard to the fans.

Why they have the balls to cut player after player and show them no loyalty but are prepared to stick by Clarke is ridiculous.

What was the issue between Grantham and Clarke that Boti alluded to? Did she want him gone but didn't get the support of the owners?

"If you think a team with 4 PGs, 1 SF, 1 PF and 3 Cs is balanced and praise worthy then by my guest."

The new guy is more of a two. Gibson has spent more time playing the two than the one at both NBL and Boomers level in the last few years. Two ball handling guards are a common recipe for success in the NBL at present.
DJ is a 4/5 and seeing as he does his best work facing the basket and off the dribble rather than working on the low block 4 is probably his natural position in offence. The fact that he can't defend anyone applies no matter where he plays. At least you got the 1 SF bit right.

"If you don't want criticism, feedback or constructive feedback then why visit Hoops SA? Go to www.disney.com"

Much of a muchness. Plenty of fantasy that makes me laugh at either site. At least on here there is a smattering of adults. Usually with a username rather than anons.

"SA basketball fans have always been knowledgeable"

Maybe you listen to Carfino too often.

"When we see something we don't like we voice it".

I would say it is more like..When we loose we like to blame people.


"Would prefer that to other teams who don't have enough fans to support a forum or ongoing financial viability."

Other fans have common forums and often like to discuss the game in general as well as their own teams. They also visit here because quite a few posters who frequent here and other non sixers threads have a good insight into all things basketball. Of course when the Sixers loose they also come here to laugh at the negativity based usually on the result and little else.

"Whether you love it or hate it, Adelaide fans will crucify a coach"
You got that bit right.

As far as Marty goes I think his two biggest failings are.
Not being able to get a player with the tools that DJ possesses to play within a team concept in offence and improve his defence.
Believe it or not. Not getting more shots for Weigh out of his sets. Weigh is about as good a 3pt shooter as there is and has the skills to take smaller threes on down low. Not sure why he gets so much criticism as he has been solid on both ends of the court pretty much all season.

A coach who shows some level of porgression will and is intitled to a 'fair go', in his time being paid as a pro coach, all he has proven is he deserves a assistant coaching role. The discussion is past, the jury is in. He will not coach the Adelaide 36ers next season, and with the team they have, would be nice for a true coach to come in and attempt to turn it around.

Marcus Camby, surely you're not serious...

This is year 3 of Marty's reign and there are still so many questions regarding his coaching ability. It's been three years and it still doesn't look as though Marty and the coaching staff have developed an "identity" for which to build the team around. Look at top teams in the NBA and you notice they have an identity. Miami have the big 3 with spacers. OKC is run and gun, the Lakers are trying to bring back showtime etc. With this team I really don't get how he has "built" the team, especially considering that the majority of this roster were signed this season, despite Marty saying he needed a three year plan to build it. In addition, the team on set plays look as disjointed now as they did when he first started coaching here. How often do we see the shot clock down to 5 seconds with the ball way up the top of the arc not far from the half way line because Marty's set play didn't work? Combine that with his questionable roster moves at times and he really is a sitting duck. This roster that the 6ers have should be challenging for a title, and they can't even beat the bottom side at home.

If the team doesn't implode during the off season, it will need a big effort to restore the fan's confidence. Pathetic Clarke. Why don't you do us all a favour and piss off back to Canberra and take your mate with you.

If all we want is for him to play 10 minutes and stand in the corner for a few 3s then why not just give those minutes to Creek (we were looking for a replacement before Creek got injured) or now Daly?

re: 36ers new import: Scott Christopherson?

I agree with Marcus Camby, purely blaming the coach for all things wrong is unfair. Do I like agreeing with Marcus? No!

I find Marty's approach to the head coaching role frustrating, confusing and lacking flexibility. I get angry because he seems totally disinterested in engaging with the fanbase, but does he need to? probably not, its more a discretionary task than a core duty. So I don't like the coach because he doesn't pamper to my whims, however he does finally, have an exciting group that have the potential to win a championship, and he has the arrogance to believe he can deliver it.

Yes there are still short comings of individuals in the playing group and one or two players may not be around next season, and no, I don't think Marty's system can deliver one, however I hope we can keep this group together and in some way I think it would great for Marty to deliver that outcome (I have visions of Marty behind a microphone and stating "hoop posters...you were wrong" Mark Williams style).

Unlike previous seasons I believe the cattle is now there and it seems more a matter of tinkering than, unlike previous seasons, wholesale changes.

So can Scott Christopherson help with the tinkering? Boy I hope so because I'm tired of seeing players shipped in and then shipped out in the space of a season and not given much of a chance by the coach.

re: 36ers new import: Scott Christopherson?

Chewy316, I take your point that the results aren't there right now @ Year 3. However, you bring up a good point, identity. You want the team to have an identity, yet how do you propose to build an identity with the roster @ Year 1 & 2?

If one were to be honest, those first 2 years were a rebuilding phase, where :

- Marty was getting a feel of being a Head Coach @ NBL level.
- Where young talent was being developed (and it has with Weigh, DJ and to an extent Creek).
- Where the right pieces were being placed together.

As you have noted, this is the first year this team has the pieces to challenge, I ask you, HOW do you expect any coach bring in an identity in 11 Rounds?

Bevo did not have an identity for the Cats @ Round 11 in their Championship year.

As with a lot of teams with big changes, it takes time to gel no matter what the chatter suggests.

What I fear is the fans have Miami Heat - Superfriends or Boston Celtics - Boston Three Party'esque expectations.

Scenarios like this are a RARITY! Most teams cannot turn it around like they do.

What I see on this forum is often very disrespectful, demeaning and generally counter-productive.

I feel embarassed for the 6er team when Gibbo is interviewed and has to say (to the effect of) the team is unified despite social media and online BS.

Marty is blamed for EVERYTHING.

- Plays that don't work out, all on Marty. I refer to the last play @ the last 6ers game, DJ was supposed to shoot the ball, NOT try to fake out 2 guards (when he is 6'10). Yet Marty is at fault.

- Import revolving door. Please have a look around the whole league and see just how many imports stay more than one season. I think Lisch and Gruber (is Gruber still an import?) would have the longest tenure @ 3 - 4 years. SYD, MEL, TSV, CRN, ADL, NZB, WOL and PER ALL HAVE 1 or more new imports...guess what I just named all 8 teams in the league. Do people cry out 'Sack Lemanis' when Wilkinson left? Diamon Simpson went to the NBA ffs.

- Someone on here just blamed Marty for the new import being shorter than advertised. I don't think there is one coach in the NBL that would keep their jobs if they were to be fired for such a crime.

I am not saying Marty is perfect and faultless in this situation. I too scratch my head @ the rotations, but does that automatically mean he is useless?

I think if one were to step back from all the negative emotion, one would see that Marty is not getting the same courtesies other teams / fan bases give their coaches.

The only way you get apples with apples though Marcus is if you put say Marty Clarke in Perth and let him lead them effectively to 3 wooden spoons in a row. If their management and fans supported him in unison for those three years then fair enough, Adelaide fans are worse than Perth fans.

Take Wollongong as example. Budget team for the last few years yet have over achieved in my opinion. Why would the fans in Wollongong take to social media to bag Geordie.

NZ are defending champs. Why would their fans attack Lemanis? Same re Bevo, Heal is probably coach of the year at this stage.

Anstey and Woolpert are getting criticised but it is Anstey's first season and his playing record is probably coming into play to silence the critics.

The Clarke bashing for the most part is deserved. If you don't agree then that is fine and your freedom of choice. Just as it is others freedom
of choice to say they are of the opinion he is not a good head coach.

FSTOS, we already have a few 6'1" NBL capable guards. Guys named Gibson, Cadee, Crosswell and Daly. Have you heard of them? That is the point of criticising the latest signing.

But don't let facts get in the way of whatever point you are 'trying' to make.

No one ever said that a 6'1" guard couldn't survive in the NBL at the 2 guard.

If we signed a 7 footer I would have asked the same question given we have Schenscher, DJ and Petrie.

You are quite right Marcus, Marty isn't to blame for everything. But things he can own:
The alienation of the fanbase.
His W-L record, the worst in the league during his time in the game, and comfortably the worst in Adelaide's storied history.
A good 75% of the vitriol directed at him. The rest is pure hate.
The fact that his team are boring and uninspiring to watch.

I hope you don't think that we want the team to fail. None of us do, but most of us are simply not willing to wait a decade for him to learn how to be a head coach of a professional team. I think if could poll the owners and those who decided to contract him for three years you would probably find that there would be unanimous agreement that that decision was a complete mistake.

He is not improving, not in any way. We are a game or so in front of the same time last year because we picked up a Boomer and another starter when the Blaze fell over. So I suppose if Perth drop out of the league this offseason then we'll have a chance at the playoffs next year.

Should have we given Claxton another two years?

The cost would have been 2 championships.

re: 36ers new import: Scott Christopherson?

As a general rule, facts hold very little relevance on this site. The casual observers who call themselves posters just say things for the sake of getting words on a screen. There are so many phony justifications and the comments are mostly shit and the polar opposite of thought provoking. Also, there is absolutely no way to change someone's mind on this site.

It's some kind of mindset people have on here that they are always right. So for those who are actually trying to get a point across on here, forget it. Your comment just drowns in the sea of crap in every thread. Most of the crap is from anonymous posters for that matter. That's another thing, f*** anonymous posters annoy the shit out of not just me, but pretty much everyone else who frequents the site.

Anon'084...

Taking your example of Wollongong...last year they had a disastrous year, bad imports, bad defence, low team morale.

Now it could be said that WOL supporters are also used to success (having made the GF 2 years prior), why didn't they turn on Geordie last year?

NZ fans were also unhappy with NZ's progress in Lemanis' early years, yet they stuck with him. It paid off. Woolpert was copping flak at the start of the year, few suggested his time @ TSV was up but nothing like the weekly Witch Hunts here.

I respect others' freedom to disrespect / dislike / hate Clarke, it happens.

However, I'd like to highlight the folly of doing so.

I refer you to the many posts where fans are hoping for Sixer losses (like against TSV) so as to be a catalyst for Clarke's axing.

Do you think such posts are helpful?

Spursfan, everyone here is anonymous, including you. The difference is that you are hiding behind an alias, whereas others are not. Using an alias doesn't give you any more credibility due to the fact that there are no registration requirements here so we can use as many aliases as we like.

See, my alias is not my real name.

Well said MCC.

The stupidity of anonymous posters posting under names like 'Dave', 'Marcus Camby', 'SpursFan' etc and then whinging about anon posters is truly staggering.

99% of the posters on here are anonymous.

Is it just my opinion but is 'Spursfan' the biggest tool that regularly posts on here? If only the rest of the world knew as much as 'Spursfan' about the game of basketball..

Spursfan if only you knew who some of these anons were.

What a joke you are mate. Your shit stinks just like everyone else.

It is a passionate fanbase. There are positives and negatives attached to this passion, but the facts are the club has underachieved under the current coaching reigme and there doesn't seem to be any indications that this will change anytime soon.

You can be passionate and reasonable / logical.

Last I checked they were not mutually exclusive.

Weekly 'Sack Marty', 'Marty Sux', 'Goodbye Marty' threads != Reason / Logic.

Camby's Cheque, those using an alias maintain something of a reputation, whether it's glowing or not. That tends to discourage poor quality posts. Note: tends.

I am leaning towards removing anonymous posting in the next few weeks.

Unless they dont reply to one of your emails, Isaac then your alias gets changed to something derogatory hence why I'll never register an account on here again.

^ good idea. I get over reading threads where 70% are Anon posts. Makes it easier to distinguish between posters, heck BJ Anthony could be posting on here and I'd have no idea ;)

Everything iv'e read about him is good shooter average defender. Marty has just come out and said smart and hard defender. Maybe thats why marty doesn't talk to the media, he has no idea.

But why is Clarke saying he won't start? Bring a new player in from the other side of the planet to sit on the pine?

Fact Marty says Scott is going to sit on the bench is the most promising sign that the bloke is a gun.

It is the Marty way.

Spinner, perhaps because Cadee probably has an a agreement from Clarke that he will always start. Regardless, of how Weigh or Cadee play they will always start.

Good how in the article he is quoted as sayin that he is "looking forward to playing in front of his new home crowd". Too bad that dipshit will only give home a few minutes off the bench per game and then blame him for the team missing the finals yet again. I can't wait for the end of the 3 year plan of failure to finally be over.
