Jason Reardon to North Adelaide

This article was in the Geelong Advertiser today.

What are the chance of Reardon breaking in tothe 36'ers from the Rockets? Do you need a SG?

I wish him well - a great young man

Adelaide's shooting guard stocks could include Maher, Ng and Burdon. A bit more height would be useful as I think any half-decent SF prospect would be quite useful.

All we're hearing about Jase is North and the Scats... what about the team really effected here: Jase's local team the East Geelong Bulls!

Not to mention the regulas Sat Summer Pick-up Jase runs at LBII Centre!

If what you say about Dusty is true, (and its not, spoke to him over the weekend, and nothing confirmed in europe yet) the question isnt if they are as good as last year or not, its whether or not they can win it again.

I say Yes they will. They have added 2 very quality players in Mapunda and Reardon, are very well coached and have a lot of depth. You cant argue against their program being the best in the comp. Will make for a good season.

Like I said on another thread, I can't understand why he picked North if he wanted to stand out from the crowd in hope he will get picked up by the Sixers. With Dusty, Zorich, Burdon, Hambour and Mapunda, he's not exactly going to be scoring 20 each game now is he!

Panther, Schueller affiliated with Stacker. Stacker a potential 36ers coach. Schueller says "We offer the best path to the 36ers", and gets a good recruit in the process. Melbourne Tigers were trying to get Brad Newley by talking up their links to the NBA in a similar way.

I didn't even know Schueller was affiliated with Stacker, but if you sign on that basis that is just false hope.
I wouldn't have definitelt thought he would've played at Sturt, that is just the automatic path to the sixers!!!

Panther,

I have to disagree with ya on this one buddy.

The Jye Watson experiment of going to a program where "you stand out" failed. Those programs tend to have poorer coaches that are less respected on the National scene alah Simpson (Whitmore this year) and Centrals.

Reardon is far better to go into a National title contender and show he can mix it with a role on an NBL calibre team, with a coach respected and known by a number of NBL coaches. Whether you love North or hat them for this its a good move for Reardon.

I've said this before in another post:

The Jye Watson experiment did not fail. He got the chance to train with the Sixers at their pre season camp but was not good enough. I guess Reardon is hoping for a similar opportunity in the hope that he will prove himself.

As for who he plays for I don't think it really matters. A good scout/coach will consider a player's performance in the context of what other players he has around him.

Smarthe, I wasn't saying go to Centrals, geez everyone knows you don't want to play there...right Vidmar! But what about a team like...South for example! Have just lost their main scorer who was getting 26 points a game, a position of which he would fill perfectly. Good guards who will get him the ball and will get 20 shots a game, unlike North where he will maybe get 10 shots. I would've even looked at Norwood who definitely need a SG. Imagine a team with Matthews at the point feeding you the ball and Cooper grabbing your misses and kicking them straight back out to you!

I'll admit I know very little about the SA ABA league, but from the other post, nearly everyone had Norths as being the top contender for the title. Reardon's come from the supercats where he won 3 SEABL titles and a national title, so it would seem to me that he would want to go to another team with a realistic shot at the title again.

How about praising a guy looking to win rather than just trying to further his career.

Reardon will get 15-20 shots per game, even at North.

Panther, maybe everybody that Reardon spoke to told him not to play for South because they are full of big headed idiots who can't play half as good as they think they can, and who have a coach who is barely known outside his own club let alone around the country. You need to know how to make a pitch to a guy to get him to come. Saying to him that we have an open starting SG spot and you can have all the minutes and take all the shots that you want but at the end of the day you won't get to play finals cos our team never plays finals, unless the bloke really doen't care about his basketball and is just looking to look a standout amoungst lesser players and following the cash, isn't gonna work!

Well done to Jason for looking at more than 'how many minuted will I get?' in choosing his new home. The fact that North also had a very appealing package for him helped too I'm sure.

Reardon has definately made a good choice. Not sure who Schuller is going to start and how he will rotate his players, but its not a bad scenario to be in.

Not a bad looking team now
Starters: Hambour, Dusty, Reardon, Burdon,Zorich
Bench: Quigley, Mapunda, Rowe, Burdon, Kies

Looking forward to them playing this mob

Starters:Sutton, Gerlach, Arnold, Oakley, Pero
Bench: Wilson, Sullivan, Harvey, Breeding, Macdonald-T, Hoban

Adelaide 36ers need to keep a close eye on Jason Reardon. Can play 2-3 spot in NBL. ABA level he gaurds a 4 man. Great rebounder, excellent passer and a flat out shooter. Had a huge pre season with Geelong and has added some bulk to his frame. All the best Jase we will miss you in Cat Country.

I think you only have to look at Reardon'e stats to understand he doesn't mind if he only gets 10 shoys a game. He lead the Seabl in assists last season and has been in the top 10 for assists and steals over the past two seasons. He is a good all round player and can make others around him better. Good luck to him and I hope he is successful in whatever he chooses to do.

Thanks Panther, far out Whitmore is a poor coach without even coaching one game at ABA level yet, I'm sure he appreciates your support Smarthe.

As for Ricky Simpson not having NBL influence just ask Justin Wilkey about the NBL trial Rick set up for him, the ref that got Reggie a season in Canberra.

Not bad for having no pull in the NBL.

We will leave all the pulling up to you Smarthe.

Everybody thanks for your feedback, I have just wasted 5 minutes reading all that crap that I will never ever get back, especially yours "2008 bring it"!!! Your so right, Schuller is such a high profile coach and veryone that goes to North only plays there because of Justin! Dusty plays there because they are mates, nothing to do with his coaching ability. He inherited the rest of his team from last year and this year he has only recruited Mapunda (back to his old club only because they won last year and he thinks he can ride dusty's coattails this year to another!) and Reardon. You stated that.."and following the cash" in regards to why he didn't sign with South. I can assure you South stick to the salary cap which is not alot of money. But the funny thing is you then go on by saying..."The fact that North also had a very appealing package for him helped too I'm sure." Bahahahaha So your telling everyone that North offered him a shit load of cash!
Anyway,
I don't think Reardon will average that many assists when you have Zorich handling the ball for most of the game and sharing those duties with Eze. And when you have players like Dusty, Zorich, Burdon, Hambour and Mapunda on your team you need to remember that there is only ever one basketball allowed on the court during the game and Reardon may find it hard to get as many shots as he likes. Therefore won't really stand out as much as he would probably hope in order to grab the Sixers coaching staff's attention.
From what I hear, Reardon has come over with the sole purpose of making the sixers team, so when you say..."is just looking to look a standout", yes that is what he is trying to do, so know your facts before making ignorant comments!

'Package' Panther is not is not a code word for cash. That wasn't a trick comment or anything. North I know offered him a place to live and a job as well as money...in other words...a package! And I said a good package would help, not the main reason!

Also Panther, I didn't say that people come to play at North cos Justin is the coach(but surely the fact that he has won a title helps), I just said that they don't come to South cos Kelly is the coach, so as you put it Bahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaha!

Also, Reardon is leaving Geelong due to personal reasons not coming to Adelaide to get a spot with the sixers...so standing out would not be as a big concern to him as playing with a strong club, with good people and a good coaching staff and of course who will win more that 5 games this year!

So after that Panther I think you need to take some reading comprehension classes cos you obviously have trouble interpreting the print infront of you.

Talking to the coaches that have spoken to him, his main reason to come over here is to have a crack at making the sixers team. He has supposedly already spoken to Paul Bauer about season 08.
Any player who plays ball would like to win a championship, that's obvious. To say he didn't go to North now because of Schueller is now just contradicting yourself. You stated that one of the reason's he didn't sign with South was because they..."have a coach who is barely known outside his own club let alone around the country".
Before you get way to far ahead of yourself which you have already,..."You need to know how to make a pitch to a guy to get him to come", what I wrote was an example, which is why I included other clubs.
What you probably should have said was..."You need to make a pitch to a guy to get him to come", because South didn't even make an offer! So your comments are absolutely irrelevant and completely ridiculous!

The team Jason plays for is a factor but not the deal maker. How he carries himself, decisions made on court, decisions made off court, work ethic, dealing with hardship etc. will ultimately determine whether he gets an NBL shot. It's not about being a standout at ABA level but whether he has the outlook and tools to play a role initially at NBL level. Smart scouters look for the unobvious, the intangibles which reveal character. Simply judging a player on an off shooting night for example is ridiculous. Looking at the shots he takes, shooting action, when he shoots etc. is more relevant. Offence is fleeting, defence is permanent and he can do this on any team. The fact he has better players around him to get him the ball at the right times, as well as get open for him to get them the ball, will simply make it easier and more enjoyable.

Well I know from talking to people in Geelong that he has left for personal reasons other than basketball. Now I know what these reasons are but I am not going to put the blokes private life all over this forum!

Once agian that quote of mine as I understand it says that Kelly is unknown...bit of a gamble going to play for someone that no one has ever heard of! Trust me, ask some SEABL coaches if they have heard of Schueller...reckon they will say yes! Kelly? doubt it!Also, I'm sure Scheuller and Reardon would have crossed paths at nationals last year! I didn't put alot of reasons why he would go to North, I just put in alot of reasons why he wouldn't go to South. I never once said that he is going to North because Scheuller is the coach! I just implied that Justin is more well known than Kelly! Once again your reading comprehension skills are lacking Panther!

And as far as those 'pitching' comments you're making...clutching at straws a bit there pal.I too was using South as an example, and in turn showing you why he would not go there!......why would anyone go to South???

Assists?? Reardon played with Leonard and Cox last year and still averaged most assists in his conf.

Shots?? Reardon played with Herbert, Myers, Cox, Medved, Brebner and Brown last year and still got off plenty of shots.

If North know whats good for them they will let Jason have plenty of the ball, his teams usually win as a result.

One of the top players in SEABL last 3 years, he will be easily one of the top players in ABL.

Big questions are can his game transfer to NBL??? If so, can he play off the bench as a 8th/9th man???

As for playing for Schueller?? Not sure it had much to do with it, especially the fact that last year at ABA finals Supercats smashed North. Think it has more to do with roster and that they will win ABL.

Knowing the guy reasonably well I think he is a good fit to any team. H does alot of things well and can contribute whether he has the ball or not. As far as NBL goes the guy just needs a break. You only have to look at his try outs and opportunities to see he has be unlucky.

Good luck to Jase.

As i have said before, reardon didn't lead the SEABL or the East conference.

In the East, Shane McDonald (7apg) and Patty Mills (5.42apg), as well as Adam Gibson (4.94apg) were all higher in assist numbers than Reardon.

You are right. He didn't lead the league in assists. He won the Golden Hands Award. Assists plus steals divided by turnovers. I am sure he would have rather win the assists instead of a more highly regarded award such as the Golden Hands. Everybody loves beating up on a successful player rather than give credit where credit is due. Have you heard of the tall poppy syndrome???????

I highly doubt that a new player to a club is going to make a public announcement that his main reason for joining them is to try and take the next step into the NBL, it wouldn't be the best start at a new club.
What he said has a professional sound about it, what you would expect for any high profile signing that leaves a club after 5 yrs.
