Earlier this year
My 2c worth
With all the negativity surrounding the 36ers, I thought it was time to add some positivity.
Now before you all start claiming I have no idea what is going on, I too am frustrated with the team's results and its leadership from the bench.
But following on from the thread about the 36ers press conference after the Sydney loss, one thing that did stand out to me watching that press conference is that Weigh has matured greatly this season.
His comments showed the playing group is frustrated with the losing streak and not thinking oh well doesn't matter. I thought he handled the situation much beter than Clarke did.
I can also see his maturity in his game as well.
I am one that has not been a great fan of Weigh since he arrived here. I thought he was too reliant on his outside shot and needed to be more aggressive. To his credit in the past few weeks he has gone away from the structure and been more aggressive.
The first game I noticed this was the here against Townsville. He attacked the rim on his first possession and although he didnt make the bucket it was positive.
Since then he has been much more aggressive taking the ball to the rim. Take a look at the Sydney game. I think Weigh has a big future at this club if he stays aggressive. He has the talent and the size, just needs to keep on the front foot.
Also a quick mention for Big Red as well. Am I the only one that is loving the way he is playing at the moment? For years I have been frustrated watching him settle for layups, but since that same Townsville game he has started going strong to the basket and looking to throw it down.
I agree with Weigh, there have been some positives come out of this losing streak.
