Do we Need a European Coach?

They do it with Football - why not with Basketball?
If were going to play in tournaments where the majority of top teams are European - playing European style ball - for European Refs = then certainly it makes sense to get a European coach?
There must be some top Euro-League coaches that arent coaching National Teams. Maybe a mercenary is what we need - somebody that doesnt care about NBL loyalties and will do whatever it takes to win

Euro coach for a group of players who play either NBA or NBL. Makes sense.







Not.

Makes sense when the 3 medalists are from Europe. Any Australian coach won a medal??? European basketball is way different to American and Australian ball. Let's get some new ideas and experience rather than spud Lemanis who's shit as a Nbl coach. And I'm not the OP.

American coaches have by far the best ratio of tournaments to gold medals. Must get an American coach.

First up every country complains about their coach, even the ones who medal. Talk to the French fans about their coach, they've been trying to get him fired for years. Short of getting Brett Brown, there's no one we're going to be really satisfied with.

Second we didn't medal not because of coaching, we straight up don't have the rosters Spain and France and even Serbia for that matter do. We have a lot of heart and character but that can only get you so far. Be interesting to see what happens next year when we can finally add some top end talent.

In every world cup since it began in the 1950s, a team that wears red, white and/or blue has medalled. Clearly we need to change the colour of our uniforms.

Brian Goorjian's record as Boomers head coach:

9th | 2004 Athens Olympics
9th | 2006 Japan World Cup
7th | 2008 Beijing Olympics

Brett Brown's record as Boomers head coach:

10th | 2010 Turkey World Cup
7th | 2012 London Olympics

Just saying...

That's not true.

Further, the silver medallists didn't even have an NBA player, given Scola plays in China. Plus he's 39 years old which would've had some Australian fans clamouring for youth in his place.

We finished ahead of almost 10 Euro teams (depending on how you want to assess Russia, Turkey, etc). Swap Broekhoff for Gliddon and I think we would've won gold, though obviously other teams could play a similar hypothetical game.

Picking a coach based on geography? Then wanting that geographical region to be somewhere that the fewest Boomers actually play?

Silly

Argentina has been in Europe ever since Manu Ginobili invented the Eurostep.

That's a bit radical
Rather Let’s sell Lemanis and our ' system’ to the majority of Europe who can’t even qualify
It’s proven and guaranteed to deliver a fourth place finish
Could make BA some money to give ol’ Simmo to play

Lemanis is Latvian. Must be the secret to his success.

Must be how we beat Lithuania. So we are looking for a new coach of French/Spanish/Serbian descent to take over from Lemanis for the medal games.

Let's go one step further, rjd.

Let’s have a Boomers coaching group consisting of an Aussie coach with lots of international experience, an experienced NBL coach to manage the NBL players, a COE coach to mange up-and-coming young players, an experienced Euro coach for against Euro teams AND an experienced ex-NBA coach for against athletic tall players such as the US usually sends out.

Simples.
