Illawarra - Is it time for the League to step in?
Such threads arise periodically when teams suck, and answer is generally no, let them sort their own shit out, come back next year.
But is this scenario different?
The NBL has invested a lot, and has much riding on the Next Stars program.
Lamelo Ball, for all his detractors, has brought unprecedented publicity, and is actually doing a bang up job.
And the Hawks have made a right hash of it.
Remains to be seen if the Snakes have anything left in the tank for Monday, but if the have the Hawks are likely to lose and plunge to 2 & 9.
All those millions tuning in to watch Lamelo, are getting an abomination of a team, badly coached, and something needs to change.
Whomever assembled that squad needs the sack, the coach is hopeless, and they haven't even been able to replace an import who got injured a month ago.
