Yes, losses are going to happen, but its annoying to have them happen at home, against a team that is barely in contention, and in such an obvious fashion.
The stupid thing is that Kenny is a very good backup for Martin, and his performance today was good. But otherwise the backcourt cupboard is bare.
Wagstaff had an off game, it happens, but generally he has been very good off the bench. All you could want in a 6th man.
Hire is generally good value, and you'd generally be happy with somebody like him as your 11th or even 10th man. But he’s not.
DKD just doesn’t seem to have what it takes. Can sometimes shoot ok, but basically doesn’t do enough.
I thought Steindl was a good pickup. Last time he played in the NBL he was very good, and the little I read when he went to Europe suggested his shooting was holding up well. But it seems to have deserted him. Hopefully he can regain some of that. I’d suggest that if he stays around then longer term Perth will look to replace DKD with a genuine guard.
Whilst Cooke continues to improve, I’m still not sold. Two season ago our 3 biggest players were Knight, Jawai, and Jervis. We’ve lost a lot of inside muscle and it shows.
Not sure how you guard a player like Kickett, who is shooting exceptionally well this season.
