Win all 5 and Adelaide claw back to .500 which is highly unlikely.
Get Humphries and Giddey back soon and 2 or even 3 wins is possible.

I see them being 9 and 15 after this patch of games. Playoffs unlikely.

Jesu Christ, I understand it's off topic and that people will rightfully plead the case of the breakers but the league is truly attempting to screw the hawks. They starve them of games and then give them three in a week at home - whilst the players & staff will gladly welcome those games, how many families can afford to attend three games in six days? A bit ordinary but anyone can see it’s all part of the plan to transplant them to another location. Larry & co can point to these games and imply that the support clearly isn’t there.

Their owner in St.Louis will be loving it! Not long now...

Bolt unless you are MEL or SEM, all teams are getting screwed.

This is a very abnormal world, I think the league is doing an extraodinary job in keeping the season going. They are probably losing a lot of money too.

All these teams are either in the playoffs or close too.

If the team is what it is today, we will lose 4 of the 5 games (we win the NZ game).

If the team has a fit Paul, Humphries and Giddey, and they all start with starting minutes, then we will win 4 of the 5 (losing to red hot Sydney).

If the result is 3 losses or more from these 5, the season is over, we would need to be 10-2 for the rest of the season to make the playoffs.

We actually need to win against Sydney as there is a growing chasm between 6th Sydney and 7th Adelaide. Sydney have 2 more wins and 4 less losses than Adelaide with 2 games in hand.

Santa said it best yesterday on Overtime. Shorten the rotation, the majority of the minutes should go to (assuming fully fit) Giddey, Crocker, Paul, DJ, IH and McVeigh, the rest should be getting spot minutes.

Melbourne had 8 consecutive home games during the Cup. Just because they failed to capitalise on them, doesn't mean they didn't have a massive advantage.

I'm done with the Sixers season. Henry can’t coach- I stuck up for him early, hoping he’d settle. But you can’t keep playing Pinder and having stuffed up rotations, no real game plan and not utilising our major weapons. It’s like this season is just about Giddey’s stats and making NBA. I know injuries have hurt but we’ve still had winnable games/chances to win.
I really don’t care what happens now, that makes me sad as I’ve loved the club since I was 9 years old, 36 years.

Every team can make the COVID excuse. Other teams can make a stronger complaint about schedule impact. Injuries they can claim - two starters out, and Sloan as another starter had to get swapped out.

Who does people think 36ers have better talent then overall?

Against which teams should 36ers have won games taking into consideration injuries/Sloan swap out when comparing talent?

I think perhaps a couple of Sydney losses? Even though they had two good imports still playing.

I had 36ers wooden spoon based on talent. Someone has to finish around bottom, why is it necessarily the coaches fault if your team is lower end of talent and your top players suffer injuries? Adelaide at the moment is roughly on par with what i expected. They were slightly above pre-NBL cup.

When IH returns I think they will be good, however I think it will be too late to make any battle for top 4.

KET, I think you under rate the talent in the team whilst I probably over rate the talent.

I have the following teams with more talent
Melbourne
Sydney

Teams I think are debatable are
Perth - If they didn't have Cotton that team is dead last

The rest I have Adelaide with more talent. The problem is the coach is terrible

Sixers have the talent but are mental midgets. When the blow torch of accountability gets applied, their true nature is exposed. Improve this one aspect and the W column improves significantly. Unfortunately it's difficult to put in what God left out.

If we are talking how ADL compare to the league without IH and Paul, it would be fair to say 8th or 9th.

If full strength, then I had them 4th.

At the start of the season I had the Sixers finishing 5th. That was with the assumption Sloan would be a good but not great player and unfortunately he turned out to be a dud.

Currently 7th with the injuries to Hump & Giddey plus all the Sloan/Kendle BS which dragged on for too long is a decent effort really. Not sold on Paul yet.

What isn't decent though is the massive slumps the team has for a quarter or a half that are so large they pretty much rule out any possibility of winning. That's on the coach. If they can play okay for 75% of the game it means it's not a talent issue but a mental issue.

We had a couple of horrendous opening quarters at the NBL Cup one I think against United and that disastrous game against NZ, possibly the most disgraceful performance I've ever seen from a 36ers team. Plus that terrible third quarter against Perth.

That's all on the coach not having his players mentally prepared to play either at the start of game or coming out of the half-time break and Henry's game plans and substitution patterns have left a lot to be desired too.

Ideally we would make a coaching change over the offseason but he's still got 2 years to run on his contract so who knows.

At the start of the season I had the Sixers finishing 5th. That was with the assumption Sloan would be a good but not great player and unfortunately he turned out to be a dud.

I had them 4th because I expected :
- Humphries to be a beast, he was.
- Sloan to be around the upper tier of imports but not superstar nor MVP per that thread.
- the Sixers to be much better defensively as Henry alluded to, and we finally have the defensive horses like Dech and Humphries to offset DJ.
- Sydney and Perth to regress due to their turnover.

I was obviously wrong on a few things and happy to concede.


Not sold on Paul yet.

Considering our last few imports were :
- Randle
- Moore
- 2H2G
- Griffin
- Sloan

Paul is a gun, right now he is doing well whilst the team has left him on an island to create himself, imagine if there was some structure. As frustrated as I was with Paul's last 2 shots against SEM, what other options did we have and he was 'hot'.

that disastrous game against NZ, possibly the most disgraceful performance I've ever seen from a 36ers team. Plus that terrible third quarter against Perth.


Marty Clarke era box scores say hello.

Ideally we would make a coaching change over the offseason but he's still got 2 years to run on his contract so who knows.

Considering the amount of investment has been made into this roster, a team would normally review the coaching when they see the low W/L ratio.

However I fear that Henry will get a free pass due to COVID and injuries, you can make an argument for it, but we should enevr have lost the Perth (big lead) and SEM (late lead) games.


That's all on the coach not having his players mentally prepared to play either at the start of game or coming out of the half-time break and Henry's game plans and substitution patterns have left a lot to be desired too.


In his TO's he seem to be saying the right things, but coming out if it the team seems to do something else.

The more I assess it the more I think the season is gone.

Paul hasn't shown anything yet to be classified as a gun. He's actually gotten worse with each subsequent game he's played which isn't usually a good sign for imports as they often start out hot as they're new and haven't been scouted yet and perhaps teams are now starting to work him out.

Admittedly Henry's substitution patterns, foul trouble and ultimately the injury in Perth didn't help his cause. But I haven't seen anything yet to suggest he'll be a gun import in this league, he looks like he's got all the hallmarks of a mid-tier level import likely being paid top dollar.

Point out any Marty Clarke coached games where we should've beaten a team comfortably but then lost to them by 45 points?

Tuning him out I think. Perhaps the biggest mistake he's made is to treat this Sixers team like he's coaching a college team. College kids need to be yelled at constantly each possession and have the plays explained to them to the nth degree not professionals.

Then like you would with kids when things go haywire for a quarter he does nothing about it lets them play through it and tries to get them to learn from it something a pro-coach like Goorjian, Vickerman or Gleeson would never do. They know you've got to stop the run on before it gets out of hand.

Now it obviously depends on what constraints Henry is coaching under. Has he been told this season is the Josh Giddey show and coach the team accordingly? All this would make sense if so given he's an 18 yo kid. That's how he coaches the team like they're all 18 yo kids.

Giddey would've only come to Adelaide with assurances of either starting and/or getting big minutes. That's the way these things happen it's why LaMelo Ball wasn't playing for a contending team last season.

Sorry I don't have any evidence I can show, just the same level of lament I felt in the recent NZ, Perth and SEM games.

The Perth game at the Cup was a good example, Hooley commented that when Bairstow and Travers make a mistake, they are gone almost for the rest of the game. Where as under Henry, Pinder is allowed to miss assignment after assignment, allow O boards and still stay on the court whilst McVeigh sits.

Kelly and JVG promised Giddey a starting position to try to divert from the implosion they created with Joey Wright and Kevin white. They were high giving each other after first few games, but as per lamelo ball, has killed team culture, now they're calling the season a development season! Even though besides McVeigh, the only player developing will be gone next year!
