Next boomers coach?

Just thinking after watching Scott Roth over the past few years with Tassie and how he's conducted himself over the past few weeks in terms of his pride to coach the jackjumpers he would be a great candidate for the next boomers coaching spot. Who are the other top prospects? Gleeson? Vickerman?

Very different approach needed in international ball - needs a much better grasp of strategy and the ability to integrate a group where many will come from different playing standards and styles.

Gleeson and Vickerman could be successful based on their NBL records - after all, Lemanis was very successful - but I'm not sure if Roth can step up that far.

I would be ok with any of those 3 as assistants paired with a top-level Euro coach. (Def not an NBA coach unless it’s one with FIBA ball experience.)

Gleeson or Vickerman

It should be a coach that is not club coaching. I'd be very happy for Lemanis to get the job again.

As would I, but I can't see BA agreeing to that

I don't think Roth would interested he goes back to the states every off season his family are still based there

It'll be Adam Caporn, he has the relationship with the NBA guys that BA will be after.

Doesn't Nielsen as well? That might also bring back Longley as assistant

Nielsen has never been a head coach, surely that rules him out.

Not sure how to rate Gleeson - would he have any NBL Championships if not for Bryce Cotton? Vickerman has also had "loaded teams" so his success can at least partly be attributed to recruiting and budget. Roth has demonstrated the ability to get a bunch of "fringe" guys to buy into a culture of team first and no-one expects us to achieve anything.

Given how competitive Perth were in GF series without Cotton, I definitely think Gleeson could win without a Cotton.
What Gleeson needs is a whole team buy-in, just like Roth, which might be less easy with a group of NBA players.

Roth would have to be a shoe in for an assistant coach role as "attitudinal adjustments" coach for the new generation Boomers.

I don't understand the Xs and Os of the game, but even I can see that he has everyone on the same page. Vucona probably, too.

They have epitomised the championship-team-beats-the-team-of-champions theory (so far, anyway).

Gleeson can do it no problems, even more so now being an assistant in the nba. He would be great.

I agree with Swish, Roth naturally embodies the quintessence of the Boomers culture as a coach -
he doesn't accomodate individual demands or expectations above the team,
He has an outstanding ability to maximise an individuals' potential and utilise it to greatest effect for team success,
Has a great feel for the game in the moment and is therefore able to make pragmatic, necessary in-game adjustments.
He values culture, cooperation, and representing the fan base/club with integrity and consistency.

He's my number one preference.

The only downside as Baller pointed out, is that even if ge was offered the role, he'd most likely decline in order to spend his off season with his family in the states.

You summed him up well, Knockdown.

However, in Tassie he was generally working with under-achievers with a point to prove.

How would he go with our young NBA players, some of whom didn't seem to embrace the Aussie team-first ethos previous teams had under Lemanis and Brown?

Good point Hoopie, the Boomers are comprised of guys in a different career position to the members of the JJ'S

The only guy I can think of that would fit the description you gave though would be Giddey at the previous WC, when he over dribbled and kind of appeared to play for the flashy pass.
Besides that, who else didn't embrace the team-first ethos?

Well he'd at least have the two he won before Cotton came to the league...

It sounds like people are saying Roth would be a natural choice for the NZ National team coach.

They are built on culture and over achieving.

Boomers aren't a workhorse team anymore, it’s an NBA culture side now and whomever coaches will need to embrace that to a certain extent, not much point having polar opposites clashing.

Coaches like Gleeson and Nielsen are probably best prepared for that as assistants in the NBA whilst also having NBL and international basketball familiarity.

They worked well together in Perth.

There's your dynamic duo!!

As much as Gleeson, Roth or Vickerman might be the logical choices depending on your preference, the NBA players have already told BA they won't have any of those three as head coach. They want Caporn, and BA will give them what they want.

It makes sense, Goorjian was delegating to Caporn at the last World Cup.

BA should have gone with Caporn after what happened last year, I really don't understand them wasting an entire Olympic campaign on Goorjian.

If Goorj can get a healthy team together I think he'll be ok PW, Goorj has always been a quick learner.

I think Goorj's time is up during the 2021-22 season. I think his final season with the Hawks was when he retired. He has since had disappointing results in the EASL despite having a very good roster. Also, the process at the last Basketball World Cup was very bad. I wasn't disappointed by the bad results at the Basketball World Cup. Being eliminated quickly is not important. The content of the game was very bad. There were no timeouts at important moments, the team's defense was poor even with good defenders, and the offense showed a reliance on ISO.

Anyone will be an improvement over Goorj. He has set the program back 5 years. Leveraged the Lemanis structure to get the Bronze and let it fall apart after that. Time to make the hard decisions on coach and players. No baggage going forward.
