"Maybe I'm reading this wrong but how can Weaver coach the Boomers when he will be coaching the Kings in the playoffs?"

The league has a break for these qualifiers.

-

Anyway, for all the people who are in love with throwing the next YouTube mixtape star into a Boomers team, NOW is the chance. With very little to lose, and a subpar talent pool to play against, and a tournament that means little to anyone, you can now play around with your Tamuri Wignesses and Josh Giddeys.

And that's what I want to see. I want to see 6 veterans to keep the ship steady, and 6 guys who could conceivably be in the mix for the 2023 world cup. Wasting spots for guys who are a little past it in age, or who are maybe better than these kids now, but have lower ceilings, isn't worth it for this.

I want to see Giddey, Wigness, Sam Frolling, Will Magnay, Noi, Pineau and Naar all get a spot.

I'm taking away Cairns and Melbourne players on assumption ( not fact) that they will be in the playoffs.

As ME has said earlier we don't need all veterans just a few.
I would take Creek, Drmic and Sobey.
Would take Giddey and Wigness for valuable experience.
Other promising young talent such as Magnay,Naar, Sam Froling, Dech and Pineau all should get a run.

"Anyone care to explain the qualifiers format & when/where the Asian Cu is?"

Basically we're in a group with New Zealand, Guam and Hong Kong. We need to finish top 2 to qualify automatically or finish 3rd to qualify for a second round. Each team plays each other twice in the home and away format. Teams that qualify to the Asia Cup also qualify for the qualifications to the next World Cup.

Asia Cup is sometime in 2021 (I think August), hasn't been announced where.

I'm surprised this isn't common knowledge now, but Ogilvy cooked his own goose in 2012 when he missed out the Olympic team. He posted on Twitter mocking the Boomers for losing during the tournament. The players on the team don't like him (how much does Bogut delight in destroying him?) and the coaches have long memories, as that was Brett Brown it happened under.

Ogilvy did his dash.

The only upside of this tournament I see is that it allows the Boomers to widen their depth even further as to who could potentially be called upon when the time comes.

Some are still whinging about the selection, but it worked well for Nick Kay, who was at very least a very solid Boomer in major tournament. He was blooded over the course of Asia Cup qualifiers, and never actually played in a World Cup qualifier or anything else of significance before then.

And you never know who is going to take to the international game. There might be someone in this line up who shines more playing international ball than he does in the NBL. Jason Cadee probably sits in that equation, despite only realistically being good enough to show out against Asian level teams.

Assuming we take 12 and if we drew a line through Sydney, Perth, Cairns and Melbourne teams we'd look at something like this. I'm not convinced we'll take Wigness or Giddey, rather just give them some exposure in camp.

1 Cadee/Naar/Dech
2 Sobey/Gliddon
3 Blanchfield/Drmic
4 Creek/Magnay/Pineau
5 Hodgson/H.Froling

I'd much prefer to start Gliddon over Cadee at the point but get the impression Cadee might get the starters gig.

I foresee a depth chart something along the lines of:

1 Cadee(22)/Naar(12)/Dech (6)
2 Sobey(25)/Gliddon(15)
3 Blanchfield(25)/Drmic(10)/Creek(5)
4 Creek(25)/Magnay(5)/Pineau(10)
5 Hodgson(20)/Froling(10)/Magnay(10)

All of you putting Naar ahead of Dech obviously don't watch Illawarra play, Dech is a far better all round player. Pineau is a five man, and as much as Drimic comes across as tosser he’s far better than Blanchfield.

Dech not a point guard and not an absolute know down shooter to be a 2 guard. You hit the nail on the head of a better all round player but basketball is a speacialists league now and outside his defence he's not elite at anything. Near is an elite organiser and play maker at point so is ahead.

Agreed Pineau is a 5, and while the hype for him is huge right now he's far behind Hodgson and Magnay of what an international 5 man does. Protect the rim, roll and dunk.

Drmic ahead of Blanchfield is silly. Can't comment further than that.

Does Naar ever defend the best opposition guard ?No, always hiding him. Good international coaches will realise quickly and close him down offensively, already happening in nbl after his few stand out games. He was back to less than 10 minutes in his last game for hawks.

Magnay can play four and Pineau five.

Not much they can do with what's left, I prob would've tried going with less youth though. This seems stronger with enough experience to get through without a loss.
