Adelaide's great start

So Joey the man, the myth, the legend has this team of misfits currently sitting 3-3 and were in the Top 4 until the Bullets win yesterday, inflated by half their wins coming against the Hawks.

The Sixers have come the closest this season to beating Sydney the Kings needing OT to keep their unbeaten record intact.

With the record crowd at the AEC on Friday night it appears the magician continues to weave his magic in Adelaide when most had this team competing for the spoon. I mean we can afford to carry both Teys & Kev White a fair effort that.

Joey's got two years to go on his contract after this season do we lock him in long term whilst he continues turning water into wine or do we honour the great man with a statue out the front of AEC?

Adelaide is very lucky to have a guy like this here. Seems to me to be just about right time right place and the owner that was prepared to offer him a longer term deal that suited him personally at the time.

Isn't Adelaide the 2nd winningest program in the NBL since he has been here? Wonder where the team is ranked in player salaries over that period?

Hopefully he makes Adelaide his long term home but if the rumours are true.....

Outside of Phil will probably go down as the best coach the 6ers have had but I suspect the amount Phil was spending had as much to do with success as anything, bleeding basketball in the state. Not Phil's fault but that is why he had such a great list.

Ken Cole is our best coach ever.

Happy to ask his players to act like cheap thugs.

Always willing to apportion the blame to others.

Unable to bring a championship after numerous attempts.

It's time for a change.

Always play the victim.

Exactly - it was better than this one.

Joey isn't that great. Adelaide certainly aren’t that great. Management can’t afford to pay his stupidly long contract out.

He ain't a myth and certainly not a legend.
Oh did someone say KC? Now there is a legend!!

I strongly believe that if Adelaide can hold form, avoid playing the Sydneys and the Perths and both Melbourne teams, and if a little luck is on their side and they can meet Illawarra in the last week of the season, I honestly believe that Adelaide will be in the box seat to take home the chip this season.
