NBL1 West - 2021/22 Offseason Thread

Men's and Women's - don't be silly about this people!

Congrats to the Tigers Women and Hawks Men first and foremost. Ironic that to be an NBL1 West Championship coach this year, you had to be PARticularly good (PARker & PARsons, somebody see the humor in this please!?)

Hot Rumors
(W) Allen out at Perth: Despite a deep Finals run in only his second season in charge, Craig Allen could be shown the door by the Redbacks due to player revolt. Harsh does not begin to describe this if true! Also reports of the return of Parker-Williams from the Wolves and she could be bringing young gun Laneisha Paddon with her.
(W) The mass exodus at the Wolfpack is all but certain to occur. Steindl, Parker-Williams, Paddon, Denehey, Ucich & Martin all expected to take offers elsewhere with Nix to be announced as new Men's Coach after the Summerville failure
(W) Goulding and Mader high on opposition clubs recruiting lists with big money being speculated to get the star pair away from Mirrabooka in 2022. COTY Srdarev in all kinds of pain if his star duo do sign on elsewhere next year
(W) Goldfields looking to sniper away some prized recruits for their inaugural season in Women's NBL1 West next year, aiming for no less than four quality recruits to assist the squad who narrowly went down to Lakeside in the Women's WABL Championship Grand Final this year
(M) Jerami Grace leaving the Magic, with the new destination already doing the rounds at the Men's Grand Final last night. Lips sealed on that one but I can reveal it is a club SOR
(M) Salinas & Iliadis both to formally announce their retirements in the off-season. Huge careers from two absolute guns and whilst their best seasons may be behind them, their leadership and knowledge will be sorely missed at the Wolfpack under soon to be announced new Head Coach Nix. Likewise, even further North - Ralph & Wundenberg expected to also announce their retirements sometime over the summer months. For two local products up there, particularly Wundenberg who didn't start playing until he was in his mid teens (He came from a polo background) they have been absolute stalwarts up at the Buccs who will no doubt go down as club legends in the Midwest.
(M) Many will have noticed the significant Wildcat flavour supporting Rockingham last night. Begs the question with Kevin White in attendance, whether he suits up with former Cats teammates Hire & Jervis for NBL1 West 2022 after playing the the Cats this upcoming NBL season.

Allen leaving Redbacks would be a major step backwards for the Redbacks. They may have made the 4, but there's still a lot of work to be done to not be dependent on Dyer.

Goulding no doubt on top of Flames, Cougars or Wolves lists.

Don’t forget the Kalamunda Exodus on the women’s side too.

But if she played for Cougars she would have to be coached by TT. What respectable, talented player wants to join the adoption agency and be called fat whilst given a dieting regime!? Or does he only do that to the younger players? Besides that she's a country girl at heart, and playing for the Giants would appeal to her in some way. Play in the stadium she grew up in, inspiring other country girls to take the sport seriously whilst on some decent coin, not many negatives there.

From all reports the Wolves men have a new Men's coach from the East Coast lined up. Craig Allen is definitely on thin ice at Perth. His return will very much be determined by player feedback to the club hierarchy. Hearing John Triscari's name be put forward for one of the Suns coaching positions

Grace & Grace definitely gone from Mandurah and joining a club closer to home. promises given to them when signed, and opportunities given to them in first half of year were broken and they were treated poorly once Machado and Travers were signed. the shopping around for a new club started before finals.

a few players on the womens side are interested in joining or returning to magic now that they have a decent coach willing to develop young players.

Hard yards at next level, doing the grunt work, setting up/taking down equipment, realising you aren't the head coach, taking orders, adding value to the program, things he clearly can't do because = ego. Like many a dominant player at NBL1, it doesn't always translate at the next level, right. Parsons has won championships thanks to his leaders, not ones he developed, ones he inherited, Gavin Field and Ben Purser, they are the ones the players listen to and play for.

Don't need to hate on the guy. What parsons has done is no small feat - 3x championships will have him down as one of the best sbl nbl1 west coaches of all time.

But yes. Training twice and having a team with a bigger budget than the East Perth, Kalmaunda, Bunbury etc is probably more his strength. Would he have the relationships with players, agents, coaches at the next level ? Well probably no. And the role of assistant coach these days so much more towards the technical side which isn’t his strength either.

Doesn’t diminish what he has achieved

I think it is unfair to not give Parsons at least some credit here - clearly he can coach very well at this level, because as others have said, the results do speak for themselves. Whether that would translate to the next level is a different discussion - just like how players who dominate NBL1 level aren't necessarily NBL talents.

People also forgot that for the Cockburn one, Field injured his arm and missed the semi finals and the final and the same was the case with Holman tearing his ACL for Perry Lakes in Game 1 of their 3 game semi final series in 2018 and missing the final. Both those teams would have gone into the grand final as big underdogs and still managed to get up.

i also recall gavin field was out injured for the GF he won at cockburn.

and to say he doesnt develop players is an stretch. this guy gets production out of guys that would probably barely rate a mention in other rosters. Before parsons got to perry lakes nobody had even heard of Matt Leary and whenever someone mentioned Mitch Clarkes name everyone thought of the Mitch Clarke who played for Willetton. Look at Andrew Ferguson's stats for SBL previous to this year. granted he was younger and hadnt had a year of DP under his belt i dont think any anticipated he would be runner up league MVP and GF MVP? (as a sidebar, how you come runner up MVP and dont make the all-star 5 for the league blows my mind)

He may not be doing little dribblers at 3:30 on a wednesday arvo but to say he doesnt develop players is laughable.

This ego argument is also laughable. Andy Stewart would have to be one of the most confident in his own abilities youve ever met and was able to make the jump to an NBL assistant. A championship winning NBL assistant at that. I wonder how he went setting up and packing up equipment and adding value. hes BWA HOF now!

Yes Parsons has won three championships, which is a great achievement for sure. No one should be knocking that, but we all know players win championships no matter what level you are at.

But more importantly, whoever is pumping his tyres, do you know if he has ever applied for the next level. If you or anyone thinks that someone is going to just come knocking on your door and offer you a job then that's pretty naive (or arrogant).

I’m sure if he took the time to apply for a job at the next level he would at least get interviewed for an assistant role. Has he done this? If not, why not? But to jump on here and say he should be in the NBL as a professional based on reputation is a bit over the top. Again, players win championships!!!!

if the "players win championships" mantra is so accurate why dont we see any NBL1 teams going without a coaching staff?

the truth is that championship teams win championships. That includes players and coaches. if you have the best coach in the world and dont have the players you arent winning. If you have the best players in the competition and an incompetent coach you arent winning.

The fact of the matter is that in any given season there are usually numerous teams that have a championship calibre playing roster. Often what separates them is their coach. Their ability to get the most out of that roster and overcome hurdles that come their way. Parsons has proven he is every bit a difference maker in the championships his teams have won.

I agree with the championship teams win championships. I don't have an agenda or anything, but throughout any professional sports league in the world, the importance of culture, coaching, and scouts are detrimental to the success of a team.

A good example is the teams that win in the Euro league. I don't think Fenerbache would have won without Coach Obradovich or I don't think the Raptors would have won the NBA championship without the adjustments Coach Nick made against Milwaukee when they were down 0-2. 

Sure, the players are the primary focus but without scouts, coaches, trainers and etc. They wouldn't win that much also. Everyone has a hand on winning for me.

Does anyone else find it a bit hypocritically ironic that on the Redbacks post about Allen standing down, the first person to comment and offer their words of support, happens to be the one person who probably could have prevented this from happening in their club president?! "We hope you stay involved with the Redbacks" I'm sorry but maybe if the President and the club had shown the guy more support to begin with, he wouldn't have felt the need to resign in the first place! I mean as if someone who has just resigned from the most senior position in your women's / girl's program, is then going to say "Nope I will stay involved here, maybe it was just at NBL1 Level where they didn't support me" - you idiot. As mentioned previously in this post, you're never one to not strut around telling people how great you are, yet this very resignation would prove otherwise. The fish rots from the head mr Nixon and yours has gotten so bad the stench can be smelt from miles away. For Perth's sake I hope someone has the courage to backstab you and take the presidency, much like you did all those years ago to get the position yourself.

It is a weird thing that a club would make a coaching move, have that move fail dismally, and then make the same move and expect a different result. It maybe just a northerners thing where they think the power lies with those south of them.
WTF is wrong with local people, there are plenty ready, capable and available and probably at half the cost.
They may consider putting some money and effort into junior development/coach development. They have just one WABL team in the semi finals. Disgraceful for an association of their size. It was mentioned on here previously their NBL1 womens team had no local content.
Wolves planning over the past few years has been poor resulting in weak WABL results, the need to spend big on SBL/NBL1 squads and few juniors getting to that level.

You'll find significant groundwork has been done to get Binar based out of Swan Park once the redevelopment is completed there (Yes people the bath tiles that were Court 3 & 4 are gonnnnnnnne!) NBL1 may be a ways off but WABL is definitely not out of the question in the not too distant future. As of this upcoming Summer season, Binar will have multiple teams at Warwick, Kalamunda, Cockburn & Rockingham domestic competitions. Based off those numbers alone, if they can then get the athletes to commit to training once a week out of Swan Park then its quite easy to see them nominate for WABL in the next two to three years beginning in the younger / lower divisions much like Hills have done.

Really, Binar into WABL? Adam has done an amazing job with Binar (Vlahov more recently) but they still piggy back of the work of those associations mentioned, participating and benefiting from their respective domestic comps.
If Binar teams are playing in those domestic comps, they should be trialling and competing as a part of those association WABL teams. If they wish to stand alone, run your own domestic comps and then select teams (when you have the facilities to be able to) to compete in WABL from there, can't have it both ways?
Then to hear they are actively encouraging indigenous athletes to not trial for WABL association teams is very disappointing.

Have only just caught up on the latest here, bahahahahahahahaaa at Parso being called out. Don't worry, he's his own biggest fan. I agree we shouldn't be talking wives and girlfriends here, not the point, but to call himself a "solid 7", well, solid maybe, not a 7 though. (Sorry, off topic, but WAY too obvious from Parso not to call out).

In summary ....

Hawks win another homecourt grandfinal after a well rigged semi finals structure and the usual spoonfed silver spoon BS.
Parsons gut prevents him from coaching NBL.

Flames were disappointed the refs wouldn't allow big Tommy and hire to beat up the Perry lakes dorks.

Lakeside continue to shoot more threes than Steph Curry and Klay Thompson on crack.

Red backs will destroy the league once the government finally builds a decent large basketball facility for the Poors on the Eastside.

Willeton are still going through tape trynna workout how Timms single handedly destroyed them for 36 and 20.

Who told the Senators that live band they had for the first half of the season would be a good thing.

Wolves continue to throw cash into a bottomless money pit like a drunken gambler in the TAB.

Mandurah tried to play sugar daddy but wound up getting pimped out hard.


Wally hagaan is a heritage listed tin shed full of studly cougar cubs who will inevitably outgrow that creche.

Goldfields and the Buccs are dying from covid 19.

The Sun's is a toxic waste dump that only a couple of Atomic bombs will fix.


Binar could already field an NBL1 Team that would beat the Eagles slammers and sun's combined.


SBL to NBL1?
It's the same pig they just put a little more lipstick and makeup on it.

some real dumb comments and some real gems two balls

binar would put many wabl clubs to shame already and would certainly be competitive at NBL1 level already. once they get their ducks lined up to BWA liking it will be an interesting transition for the competition

bit of a below the belt comment about matty parso physique! he is a coaching adonis

suns just advertised their womens head coach role. good luck to whoever takes that one on!

would love to hear your take on slammers and eagles apart from them being beaten by Binar

NBL1 COACHES

Any updates?

Returning women's coaches:
- Charles Nix
- Jonelle Morley
- Ty Thwaites
- Tom Knowles
- Vlad Alava
- Simon Parker
- East Perth VACANT - Megan Thompson?
- Lakeside VACANT - Blake Srdarev (locked in but not announced)
- Perry Lakes VACANT - ??
- Eastern Suns VACANT - Will be surprised if anyone wants that basket case job
- Bunbury VACANT - see Suns comment
- Perth Redbacks VACANT - Craig Reynolds?

Returning (or already appointed) men's coaches:
- CJ Jackson
- Dayle Joseph
- Wayne Creek
- Ben Ettridge
- Dave Daniels
- Andrew Cooper
- Ryan Petrik
- Adam Nener

A lot of movement on the women's side in particular. You would think those clubs would have a jump on recruiting and probably expect announcements as soon as allowed to. Rocko / Wolves / Cougars normally quick to announce anyway. Hearing rumblings of big name WNBL athletes coming to the west for 2022.

Men's league seems a little quieter with the uncertainty of NBL season timings still on-going..

If I was an NBL1 coach who need some talent I would be looking at Perry Lakes juniors. They have won the U/18 Ch and Div 2 the last two or three years. The U/20s won and the WABL Champ men won as well. Development there must be go1ng ok.

Pretty sure the post was for ANY nbl1 coach who wants to find talent look at the recent crop of young hawks. parso, the coaching adonis he is, has his team full of more mature players so other clubs looking to chase him should be looking at those younger hawks for sure.

Yep, not hard to join the dots really.

On another note, great to see a big spread of clubs taking out champ divisions.
We can all sit here and pot each other all we like, but the success recently of state teams, players going into high levels, and the increasing quality of our junior leagues is great to see and result of all people involved at all clubs

Parsons is not the only one who develops these kids, there are quite a few very good coaches in the Hawks system. But Parsons is part of the player and coach development. The Cockburners just can't get over it.

There is a simple way to see which coaches are interested in junior development and pathways and who aren't. Go and raid the Hawks boys and Tigers girls and see whether or not they are gettable. Tigers already lost a few junior girls this year to NBL1 contracts at other clubs, but did manage to give some of their own juniors a taste, Hawks men might be more difficult story. As good juniors move into seniors, getting into the league will take priority over loyalty and that is fair enough

both clubs at an interesting crossroad. just won a championship, but with a lot of talent coming through. do they run it back and risk losing the homegrown kids due to lack of opportunity or do their best to keep their kids and possibly jeopardise winning now? some difficult decisions ahead

No imports next year will help. There is a limit to the number that can get to the pointy end so you'd expect clubs to identify who is expendable and have conversations with them. It's an ideal situation for clubs with poor junior development.

I think the sraderev move is interesting. I personally don't like the fact he moved on. he was developing some kids and a good culture. is he a good coach ? he bought in 5/6 players of quality which they needed for sure. I worry for east perth again next season they will be back to square one , new coach limited talent as everyone will follow sraderev and erin fisher has gone down with an A.C.L
I believe rockingham will have some trouble keeping a couple of key wnbl players next season , strong rumours a few are on the move.

Maybe Srdarev wanted closer to home for work commitments vs family life. It's about BBALL/life balance and good luck to him, he developed girls at EP and with the lack of coaching appointments SOR lakeside juniors will continue to develop which IS in the best interests of the competition.

before srdarev arrived at eagles they had won maybe 1 game in about 5 years? not sure how much development was happening within the club during that time.

not only did he create a whole new winning culture in the team he did it in a way that more than shows he can coach. Goulding was a marquee signing and a big coup for srdarev and the club. Fejo was not in the inner circle at cougars and was on the out. Srdarev really used her as a great support to Goulding. Moyes career had stalled completely after major injury disruption. He took a chance on her coming off a major knee surgery when most others wouldnt have. she was fantastic. Mader really came into her own during the season.

As much as people can sit back and make a flippant statement that he just recruited 5/6 players in and its easy clearly have no idea. to get players from all different places, many of whom others had given up on or under rated and get them to gel the way he did takes a lot of skill and talent as a coach. hats off to him.

it just goes to show that even if a club is a basket case in the background, a skilled and talented coach can still be successful. it just usually means they move on quickly to a more supportive and stable environment pretty quickly when they get the chance.

No one says it's not easy, it just that people get criticised on here for doing what he did..

Sometimes they get criticised for recruiting way less than he did.

That’s the point and why this forum is annoying.

It’s just a bunch of mates who jump on people who aren’t there mates. Lucky for Srdarev he has mates on here.

So let me get this straight. I think we have now established that to be a good team, you need good players and a good coach. Ground breaking stuff. Was Simon Parker a bad coach last year because Willetton didn't finish very high? Nope, he was the same guy working with a roster that was a bit limited. Each club has their own agenda, might be winning now and recruiting for it, or it might be developing a crop of younger players to become a longer term core, or it might be a combination of both. Personal attacks on coaches don't really serve a purpose other than to provide some kind of satisfaction for those grinding an axe.
