I'd hope AAU doesnt take off in Australia. It ruined American basketball and is a breeding ground for bad habits.
I'm not saying every player has to be elite at everything, but with AAU you fast get guards just playing isolation all game, shooting 15 threes and not even trying on D. Nobody plays any D, people score 50+ points on cherry pick passes and its bullcrap. Kobe Bryant, Gilbert Arenas and many others have voiced concerns with the fact that Europeans are better players (skillwise) because theyre raised playing structured team ball from the jump. American kids are put in systems where they fight with their team and the opposition to stand out.
Team play, open shots, intangibles and hustling for loose balls (literally the staple of all Aussie players not named Ben Simmons) are exactly why were getting more and more guys into the NBA and our local NBL guys are improving.
I'd hate to see it all go down the drain due to a culture change and some cash grabbing being done
