Exactly. But let's forget the fact not every coach has the same resources behind them or stable system in place when they got there.

as a Perth fan I've always hated him.

I think the Wildcats players leadership team is the biggest reason for the success. They set the tone defensively and maintain the physicality that everyone hates.

The offence always seems to be give it to this guy and let him do something. if he doesn't they're doomed. thankfully we've had the likes of Ennis, Cotton and Prather to get them through.

I recall saying a number of weeks ago that if Perth made the playoffs they would be close to favourites - because you just can't ignore their championship pedigree and the fact of their stellar home record. ala you have to respect them in the same vein as when the Spurs make the playoffs.

The response I generally got was that Perth were junk and would be swept by the Taipans.

They are still my favourites to win the championship (as much as it pains me to say that).

It's quite possible that everyone is right. He carries on like an idiot, has loads of money behind him and inherited Bevo's core, but 3/4 GFs is solid no matter what. Still had to recruit around that core and balance imports year by year.

I can see NBL doing backflips if Perth get to host game 1 ,3 and 5,so all that needs to happen now is for the Hawks to get up on Thursday for that to happen and by the way Gleeson is a f/head.

All of you that still bag him and don't rate him as a coach or think his success has anything to do with anything else but the fact that he's a brilliant coach are idiots. Better yet, flogs. He's done what no other coach has done in Oerth, including the ranger Bevo. I'd love to have him over for a BBQ!

I could win with the resources the Wildcats have provided him. He has simply been in the right place at the right time. The team has done great this past 3/4 years but anyone could've 'mangaed' the likes of ennis beastmode Martin Prather cotton etc etc as for his persona, complete annoying jerk. Again a lot of coaches could've had the same success, product of great timing.

Anon, hater comes out on show. What about nelbourneca d Sydney?? They had loaded teams yet didn't make the playoffs. Are you suggesting anyone would have got then a championship with their loaded side. He's guided Perth to the grand final after missing Martin for 11 games this year, import changes. He brought in Prather, Neal, cotton, this business of rob beveridge has a lot to do with the current success is old now, he left 4 years ago.

When you look at the cats, there's probably 4 other teams with deeper benches so when people say Perth are loaded, they aren't as loaded as you think.

Yes I'm saying plenty of coaches could've won with the team he has offered to him. I'm not hating for the sake of it but he isn't some super coach, right coach at the right time for that core is my point. Good luck to him. If someone is going to start a thread like this expect it to have varied opinions, and don't be naive enough to get it always twisted with hate.

Gleeson rubs many people up the wrong way, but he has proven over a long period of time he is a very good coach. Only one season missing the playoffs in how long?

He came into Perth and was smart, he gave the players responsibility, particularly at the defensive end and they chose to keep a lot of what Bevo taught them.

That's just smart, using the knowledge of experienced players and a very good coach.

Sure, he's had great backing, but as Melbourne and Sydney show year after year, it takes more than that to succeed.

The records of Lemanis, Beveridge, Wright and Gleeson over a long period show they deserve to be ranked very highly as coaches. Similar with Fearne and McLeod working with small budgets.

Has got the results so obviously has good knowledge and man management, I'd say both assistant coaches are very good as well, Kings might have been better trying to get Nielson back.

It's laughable that anyone thinks Gleeson isn't a very good coach.

If Adelaide get through, i'm concerned about their ability to handle their unbelievable defence.

Its peculiar how posters are quick to point out Gaze and DD's failings but then claim Gleeson only succeeds because he has a good squad. Seems to me you need both.

Plus I seem to remember reading that it was him who had been scouting Cotton for years?

"Bevo's system??? hahahaha, bevo's system is much different to the way the cats have played under Gleeson."

At the defensive end, no, they haven't moved far from what Bevo did, why would they when they were/are the best defensive team.

At the offensive end, yes, Trev brought in his flex-based offence, but some of what they're running at the moment is quite similar to Bevo's offence to create spacing for on-balls, rather than being post-centred.

I don't understand how this can be "Bevo's system"

Gleeson has had 4 years, and we're saying he's done nothing but tell the guys "keep doing what you were doing under Bevo"? Truly?

Plus how exactly have Cotton, Prather, etc, learned from Bevo?

They've kept a lot of what Beveridge did defensively. Gleeson gave the players ownership to decide a lot of this stuff when he first came in and they stuck with what works.

Gleeson's behaviour on the bench is deplorable. His constant challenges to Referees is endless and calling them out as "Your Lying" is an example of his exceptionally poor behaviour. Basketball has long advertised itself as the Family Sport, Gleeson does nothing to enhance this wishful thinking. Oh dear he has no smile either the poor boy.
