36ers basketball operations manager says they're days away from appointing Wright's replacement.

Here's a story if you like paywalls.

It probably was Caporn. Just as he was about to be the coach, corona virus hit.
Nobody knows what is going to happen, but would you leave a job you've been in for a few years in these trying times. I don’t think so.
To the above poster Caporn has pulled out, probably due to the virus. He has also pulled out of other coaching jobs in the NBL previously so can’t say it’s just an Adelaide thing

He posted his "rumour" three weeks ago. It could very well have been true then - obviously a lot has changed in the world in the past few weeks.

Olgun said Adelaide offered him the job but he turned it down. If an applicant is offered a job, its not much of a stretch to join the dots and say he will accept. He didn't but it doesnt mean its a false rumour or useless source.

Why would Covid19 make Caporn change his mind?

Other than states' total lockdown, but that could still be part of the contract to cancel the contract if such scenarios take place.

They offer him the job then he finds out his salary is lower than his expectations and says, thanks but no thanks. That is how the real world works.

People are still carrying on and planning a future when things go back to 'normal. People still work, hope, plan to build what they can for the future.

The NBL and Clubs are doing the same.

Just because there is a pandemic does not mean we all lay down and do nothing for the whole time.

There's a pretty damn big gap between "doing nothing" and "splashing money around hiring a coach for a season that is far from certain to even go ahead".

Businesses aren't throwing money around right now because we have no idea what the future really looks like and when things will be back up and running again. Even after restrictions are lifted (and we don't know when that will be), are people going to have the disposable income for attending sports in the same numbers as before? Are people going to want to go out and be in big crowds?

But no, the fact that Adelaide might end up with a lesser coach is obviously the most important thing here.

Get some perspective people.

In what universe is that a small number?

It's also significantly lower than the actual number because places like Italy and New York have simply stopped testing the dead because they have better things to do with their time. Generally 20-25 New Yorkers die every day at home of "meh, must have been something I guess". That number is over 200 at the moment. Any chance it's a coincidence? Of course not. So New York has over 150 deaths a day from COVID-19 that aren't being reported.

We are in a basketball forum, with a particular focus on the NBL and with a predominant audience following the 36ers.

Whilst we realise that not getting Adam Caporn to coach the Adelaide 36ers does not rate highly in the scale of current world events, and that basketball itself is not in a vacuum, we still purposely came to a basketball forum to talk about basketball / NBL / 36ers.

If you feel these conversations are beneath some standards you place on discussions, feel free to leave and go to a forum where the names of the fallen are read out on the hour.

Kobe, you said "There's a fucking pandemic" and your other comments in light of people wanting to discuss the 6ers coach show you have no perspective on this thing. It is not unusual as there a quite a lot of dumb people in the population like you. Panic buying, locking themselves inside 23 hrs per day etc.

It is not a small a number, it could have been worse. We should be very concerned but this will be over soon.

But perspective......

120,000/7,700,000,000

160k die in the world per day.

383k are born poor day.

9 million die of starvation per annum.
18 million die of CVD per annum
400,000 of maleria
500,000 from homocides
etc etc

I hope this gives you perspective. The world is a big place. Yes this is a pandemic. Yes we need to flatten the curve. But yes, the conversation on who the next sixers coach will be is very relevent. Restrictions will begin to be removed soon and the season will go on, it will be different post virus than it would have been if it never came but it will go on. Get on board the NBL train champ.

"It comes as Boomers' assistant coach Adam Caporn has turned down an offer to become the Adelaide 36ers new coach.

The Advertiser understands that Caporn, also the national Centre of Excellence coach, was offered the job but declined."

Caporn may well have spoken to three coaching "graduates" of the ex-AIS - all of whom would have strongly advised him not to chance his arm with the 36ers.

Frank Arsego would be like a triple retread on a 10 year old tyre carcass that has already had a few blowouts - wouldn't trust even it as the second emergency spare, which , by the way, may well be where the 36ers coaching search may be down to.

Could you imagine that conversation between Caporn and Clarke.

Caporn: "I've been offered the 36ers job Marty. I know it didn't go as well as you hoped. What advice could you give me to ensure I succeed?"

Clarke: "Nothing Adam. I wasn't the problem, it was the fans, the media, the players, everyone else was the problem."

Let's get back on topic or start a NH thread about Covid19.
I still think a young international coach would be a good thing, depending on travel restrictions. Otherwise we are down to retreads or charlatans like Flynn. American coaches that haven't been involved in Australian basketball have proven to be failures generally like Demopoulos. Jury is out for me on Weaver, sure, made the finals but had a loaded roster and struggled at the end of season.
Ultimately it's been a bad perfect storm for Sixers. Joey dramas, Whites tweets, Covid19, uncertainty of season affecting sponsorship and salaries, travel restrictions.
I fear it's going to have to be KB simply because no-one else wants it.

Will the 6ers be better or worse placed financially?

I was assuming the economic downturn would mean less money to spend on the roster?

If so, what are the priorities?

Do they blow most of the budget on the main rotation (1-7) and go really cheap on the last four spots?

Will the coronavirus in Europe etc mean more Aussies looking to play here and result in pretty good rosters for the same/less money?

Probably, given they're talking about a 50% reduction in pay for all players.

It's impossible to answer this question until we know what the salary cap situation looks like, who's available, etc.

Will the coronavirus in Europe etc mean more Aussies looking to play here and result in pretty good rosters for the same/less money?
We cannot possibly know this. We don't know if imports will be allowed. We don't know if pay cuts will go through. We don't know if the salary cap will reduce. We don't know if flights will be allowed to go out or come in. We don't know whether there will even be a season to play in.

Henare would be the best option from all the names suggested. He has up to date knowledge of the league, has had good history, and seems to get players playing for him.

The Caporn situation was probably more about the timing and corona impact. It would be hard to leave job security at CoE for a position that the league doesn't really know when it will start and in what capacity

Difference is Radford was an assistant coach. Has any other assistant coach got a tech foul in the last 20 years? One tech by an assistant coach is one too many. He then showed no responsibility it was even him. From memory there was a post on here where he (Or was it Clarke?) got into an argument with a fan after a game. So not only did he not take responsibility, he couldn't control his emotions. That as well as the team sitting bottom of the ladder 2 of the 3 years (the one they finished second to last, a new team came into the league). So I think the crap tag is justified

The Clarke - Radford years were the worst in 36ers history as displayed by the data.

Worst results on court. Crowd numbers going down year on year.

They were rightly hated by the majority of the fanbase at the end by the arrogant way the both of them carried themselves while seeing our club fall to pieces. If you remember there were multiple posts on Hoops from people close to them ripping into the fans.

The moment they left things immediately improved.

The fact there is people on here still defending them is amazing.
