WA SBL - Sept / Off Season 2018/19

Thought we coukd just have one new thread dor essentially the Men's Grand Final tonight then any off season news.

Crazy, crazy finish to the Women's GF last night - Kudos to Mansfield, Reynolds, Brett & the Lightning Women on another Championship for the Purple Army. For the Magic , simply a case of what might have been... 5 mins away from a maiden championship for the club.

Wolves shot pretty bad from the arc tonight. They also struggled in the paint with Carlwell's height enough to just slightly alter everyone's shots.

Hat's off to the Hawks. They deserved to win and they did it in good spirit.

Ettridge is the northern suburbs version of Lacko. No idea how to make in game adjustments when plan A turns to mud. I feel for Billups and Trian because they played their asses off but were let down by an ordinary bench and some ordinary coaching.

I said it last week and i will say it again, the walking ego cannot coach to save himself. His assistant who was not there tonight is the real head coach of that team and tonight's result further justifies that fact. B.E might have to do a Foreman after the rumble in the jungle and disappear for however long it takes him to realise he isn't as good as his ego would have him believe. He was thoroughly outcoached in all aspects and it was very interesting post game talking to wolves fans who are fed up with the arrogance and underachieving, some even saying if he stays in charge that they would not remain at the club. The fallout from our northern neighbours could be epic, somebody pass the popcorn

Man there are some filth on this forum.

I personally think it's fine for Ettirdge to sulk after the game, he puts a lot of effort into the season, and is probably feeling the weight of expectation every year heavier and heavier. They’ve made a ton of GFs lately, so give them some props. Great program and professional.

Hawks thoroughly deserved to win, they wanted it more. Simple as that, whether it was Parsons pep talks or the underdog mentality. Simply wanted the ball more.

I hate some of the shade Wolfpack were throwing around post game, saying it should be a 3 game series. Right after 2 of the biggest games in SBL GF history...

Have to agree with Parsons NBL comment.
He at least deserves a crack at it.

What he has done over the last 4 years is remarkable.

Takes a struggling team over and within 2 years has them both a championship.
Don't forget both his championship wins were with their best players out injured (Field & Holmen). and heavy underdogs.

Once your lucky, twice you are good.

Etto was heavily out coached, once again.

He blatantly refuses to go to Plan B,C,D and mix anything up.

If Plan A is not working, there is no shame in admitting your losing the chess match and make some adjustments.

His Ego just does not allow him to do this.

3 years in a row they have been favorites and have now lost on the big stage.
Questions do need to be asked.

Billups having 4 fouls is no reason to bench him until the final 4 minutes of the 4th quarter, that was a regrettable decision.

a point scored in the first 6 minutes of the quarter is worth exactly the same as a point scored in the final 4 minutes of the quarter, if he fouls out he sits, if he sits then he sits, same thing right

Unfortunately the coach made a real mess of it on all levels.
I guess mistakes do happen.

You have to feel sorry for the guy, maybe the pressure of the last few years got to him.
At the end of the day coaches are human too and while he may give off the reflection of being confident/arrogant etc maybe that is just a defense mechanism of his, to the outside world looking in, he certainly has not been able to handle the big stage very well at all.

Technically Etto would be a better chance in the NBL with his background and connections working with Basketball Australia. If he can't get a gig parsons won’t be able too.

NBL assistants are Matt Nielsen, Kevin Brooks, Mike Kelly (now Head Coach), Judd Flavell, Copeland etc all former players. Of they are Jamie O’loughlin and Justin Scheuller with Australian team success on the junior level.

Parsons has developed Cummings, Hamilton and Clarke all of whom made significant contributions in the finals series. That's not bad as junior talent is thinly spread after the guys go to college and AIS.
He also coaches state teams. I think he is on a journey developing his coaching resume and is going really well so far. As a state and SBL coach you can only work with what's around you and Parsons is getting a lot from what he has.
His scouting and recruiting couldn't be questioned either at this stage. Andy Stewart made it to WNBL level from SBL and there's no reason Parsons can't. It is rare to find a coach who has total commitment from his players as Parsons does, just ask 10 or 11 SBL coaches.

i guess the call on wolves not having a matchup for Brian Carlwell was accurate
21pts 18rb 2bl 64%FG

It will be interesting to see how 2019 shapes up for the wolves. their success has really come on the back of illiadis, salinas and huntington in their primes and then adding some decent imports/pro guys around them.
All 3 of these guys are coming towards the tail end of their careers and whilst they may have a few more seasons in their legs, how many will they have where they can be at the top of the league?

I think people will find Parsons is quite happy to stay at Perry Lakes as long as they want him. He would 100% love to coach at the highest levels of ever presented the opportunity but he also isn't sitting by the phone expecting a call. He loves coaching the Hawks and he loves the SBL. He has played at higher levels around Australia (SEABL amd QBL)and has seen the way it works. He’s not really that inexperienced as some like to speculate. He’s won a chip as a player at SEABL level. So he’s been around a bit.

Parsons was a player who got cut from the bottom team in the SBL being swans when he played. To suggest he "played at the higher levels" is a joke. The only way he would've made an drank team is by favouritism or bribing someone. He was a fat, lazy, slow 3pt shooter who overshot the ball, overrated his own talent and couldn’t defend his own shadow. Maybe that’s why the above poster conveniently forgot to mention Parson’s days as a (very fringe) sbl player.

Don’t bullshit those who have been around long enough to know!

He has done a good job coaching of late and has been extremely fortunate to be in a position where he has the resources to pay for and recruit top level talent. There are better coaches around who haven’t had that same opportunity but given it would probably have 4 or 5 “chips” by now.

Name the better coaches who would have had 4-5 rings by now? I'm waiting. Clearly he is the standard in the SBL at the moment. Plenty of great programs with good resources don’t win championships. Look at Willo, Gero and Stirling.
Seems like Lol is a former player/coach who is a tad upset at someone else’s success.
Parsons is a SEABL champion whether you like it or not. He will be the first person to poke fun at his playing career. He knows he wasn’t more than a fringe player. You seem to think the above poster was trying to make out that Parson was a star player.
They were actually saying that his experience at the higher level isn’t as non existent as some may think. Not once did they make out that he was a star. I guess when you are unhappy in your own lack of success you like to lash out at others who have had success.

Facts on where you would prefer to be as a junior (i.e. those yet to break into the SBL as a regular).

Based on top 4-6 metro teams....

Joondalup - 8 juniors given opportunities - 293 mins played
Stirling - 3 juniors - 198 minutes
Perth Redbacks - 10 juniors - 316 minutes
Perry Lakes - 3 juniors - 19 minutes
lakeside - 6 juniors - 197 minutes
Willetton - 6 juniors - 181 minutes (excl Luke Jackson)

This excludes the likes of players like Ironmonger, Wellsteed, M Clarke, Coopera Hamilton, Nordhoek, Thwaites, etc - i.e. those getting regular games.

If you want to be given an opportunity to hit the court for a chance to prove yourself - and to be involved as part of a program there are some clubs that are doing - and some that aren't.

How can you exclude "juniors" like Clarke and Hamilton from PL when they are 18 to 20 years old? Cole Heath is another I would classify as a junior. They have all received real playing time as opposed to a minute a game in blow outs (which is hardly opportunity or development).

Your stat for Redbacks - 10 players playing 316 minutes over 30 games (including finals) works out on average as a minute a game i.e. sub Redhage/Barrow/Roberts/Hussey etc off now we have won this game comfortably and stick our kids on for 30 seconds. There is no pathway there.

Guys listen up,
This is how you develope youngsters.


Firstly in the offseason bring in a whole starting 5 from outside your club.
Make sure you pay them well too, this is very important.

Secondly you must bring in people like Alex Loughton to play a handful of meaningless games to start the year, and deprive your locals of valuable experience and minutes.
Make sure you pay him too.

Then make sure you do a heap of articles praising the young guys, make sure you mention its not the 5 guys you have brought in from outside the club or the one hit wonders that makes this team great, but the young guys.
Also say how you have developed them all.

Then make sure you don't give the young locals any minutes until your up by at least 25 points with 3 mins left in the 4th.

Then do a few more articles.

Then come finals when the guys you have brought in get fouls and have to sit, scratch your head and wonder why the locals cant get it done.

Isn't development done in training and the D League. If you show you can play at the D League level and you bring it in training the chances are you will get a few spot minutes in the MSBL team. Not everything needs to be handed to young players. They have to earn it.
Looking at that graphic which Jnrs did Joondalup play this season? They certainly didn’t play in the GF or in the Finals series.

Under the guise of 'expert coaching', Therefore generating more cash to pay to the imports and stars ??? I personally think it's a disgrace, and the coach and club involved in this extremely dodgy and even possibly corrupt practice should be investigated and asked Show their books and give an explanation to the basketball community. I know many young people who have come through the ranks of SBL without having to hand cash over to arrogant coaches who feel they should pay for the chance, that they may or may not be good enough for.
What do you guys think. ?? If you'd had to pay for the opportunity, would you have done it ? Could your family afford it. What about the youngsters who can't afford these huge 'coaching fees'.

Which club charges jnrs for extra coaching? I think you will find that the extra coaching that is done is completely separate to anything to do with the SBL programs. They don't charge kids to play SBL. These coaching programs are legitimate businesses. Anyone can access them. You don’t have to be a WABL or SBL jnr to do them. Not sure how they could be penalized for running a small business that’s separate to the club. If the business employees players from the club then so be it. Every player at every club has that right and opportunity to do something similar if they want.

Solid words from the President.

You might not like 'the Pack', but if you measure success by how often they remain in the top echelon, you’d say they’re going a good job. Look at the Spurs, every year people know the are going to be there, or there abouts. They might only have a few chips to show in the last 10 years, but they have been amongst it EVERY year.

Britt and Hunter are taking professionalism of the SBL to another level, and I’m sure if you asked anyone, theyd want 14 Wolves over 14 Eastern Suns/Eagles.

I don’t like the insinuation that they are driving money from juniors to seniors, or that locking in memberships for next season means they can secure better players. But maybe I drew that conclusion myself.

Think of the teams that you know will be top 8 next year, Wolves will be one of them. That’s success.

Women's COTY - Charles Nix (Redbacks)
Women's MVP - Ali Schwagmeyer (Lightning)

I assume he would have them primed every year for a tilt, they are far from a certainty, there is a group of about six teams which you can bank on being in the mix next year.

I dont know why the SBL doesnt award a rookie of the year award?

australiabasket does which is great as it at least gives some recognition to the top rookie performer

who do you think the rookies of the year would be for MSBL and WSBL?

Luke Travers from Rockingham is my pick for the Men

fun fact: The Eagles womens team have won more games than lost in a season 3 times in their SBL history (1989, 2010, 2011). They have also set winless seasons 3 times (1993, 1998, 2018)

Of their 3 seasons with positive records, each have resulted in playing finals, once of which resulted in a grand final appearance...

East Perth, just like Stirling, were a great District association. The women's team contested six consecutive grand finals between 1976 to 1981 (they won four straight championships 1977-80).

Your local community newspaper in the northern suburbs, we caught up with Joondalup Wolves Head Coach Ben Ettridge following the Grand Final last Saturday night:

GG: Ben you made a quick exit behind the grandstand after the game, what was the reasoning behind that?

BE: Yeah look congratulationa to the Hawks first of all, they were the better team on the night and if we had our time again I'm sure the result would have been different. They hit some lucky baskets, we struggled with how the refs targeted Jaylen a bit we thought, alot of 50/50 calls against him which could have gone either way really played a huge role in determining the outcome of the game

GG: Ok but you haven't actually answered my question - why did you walk straight behind the grandstand after the customary shaking of opposition hands? There were mixed reports you were consoling a player, then other reports suggesting you were looking for where your coaching knowledge and skill set which appeared to have gone for the previous two hours

BE: Ok first of all we have created a strong sense of club and brotherhood within the wolfpack family and if one of our own is distraught, then I will do everything in my power to give them the support required. We are one of the most successful clubs in the state if not country since I took over this previously lacklustre program and we pride ourselves on ensuring that we look down on the rest of the League regardless of however many times we appear to have choked on the big stage in recent years. In regards to where my coaching knowledge and skill was on Saturday night, you will find it was attending his sister's wedding.

GG: Ok final question, being your third loss in a Grand Final in a row, do you accept any responsibility for the underperforming results or are there other factors to take into account

BE: Under no circumstances was the result this year or the previous two years, my fault. We have lobbied the League vigorously in that time to make the Grand Final a three game series, particularly when the opposition side in it's current format gets to essentially host the one-off Grand Final on their home court. It will also mean that being in a much more affluent area of the city, certain demographics won't make the journey up to our state of the art home stadium HBF Arena thus alleviating any potential crowd control issues or heckling from wives of opposition coaches or things of that nature. We ARE the destination of choice for Basketball in WA and the sooner we start getting some respect for all that I have done for this program and the sport in general in this state, the better off the game will be.

Won the game in superb style - enjoy it but save the drivel and vitriol.

Wolves not flash but they’ll know this - big decisions to be made - expect some leadership change to show club had learnt lessons.

East Perth will still be trash. Honestly which players from the Wildcats setup is even close to coming to your club. Considering the only ones likely to be avail for the SBL season will be the DPs ( both of them already employed by their clubs) and maybe Tom Jervis. Everyone else is more likely to play NZBL or SEABL like this season.

Both teams improved 4 places from last season. Hawks took a much bigger step though going from a perennial 8th seed to the champs. It's a shame they can’t include finals in their votes. I think it’s just a given that any team Parsons coaches now will end up being pretty good. That’s why it will be tough for him to win coach of the year again. Their is an expectation for his teams to produce. His team will need to win 22 + games next season to even get a sniff at COTY.

Not saying it's right, saying its how it is. All coaches in NBL are either former players, or have scouting/analytic type backgrounds.

And am I wrong? Nbl season right around the corner, who has he signed with? Meanwhile Luke Brennan joins the Wildcats coaching staff, most likely because of his background doing video and scout with the Australian wheelchair team.

Ok to be honest, from an outsider looking in.


Wolves/Cockburn/Perry Lakes and Lakeside (Under Andy) over the course of last 10-15years have always had the best system in place.
They play a decent style, always competitive, well respected, hard to play against, have culture, core group is local talent.

When u play any of above you always know your in for the fight.
They don't pay $$$ trying to hit home runs.


PS - Imagine if Cougars were allowed to have 2 imports like every other team over last 10yrs.
Could be another 3+ championships, maybe more!!
