Smyth = Not worth his money

This deserves its own thread. 13 seconds, up by 3 with two time-outs remaining. Having trouble with the extended pressure all night long. Everyone can see what is coming. Can't afford to go to over-time as the offence is being stimulated by Maher nearly exclusively and he won't have the legs to keep nailing those tough jumpers in over-time.

Under these conditions, an Under 12 div 4 coach would call a time-out and get the ball forward with something drawn up, let alone a supposed paid professional. What makes the situation even better is if the first out-of-bounds play fails, the in bounder can call time and get another crack at it. Guess Smyth was too lazy to get off his arse and call time.

Everyone knows that at this level Darren is a two in a 1 man's body. Everyone knows BG is prepared, and will throw a press when Maher is off. The Sixers didn't seem prepared at all. Majstrovich, who played pretty well I might add, was caught like a deer in headlights when thrown into the middle of the press-breaker. Lack of preparation?

In the third we totally went away from Horvath who had 15 in the first. He was still getting seals down low, and when the switch occurred on the pick and roll was open quite often. We were struggling to score at this stage and its crucial moments like this in a game when a coach has to refocus his offence.

The season isn't looking good, when Maher moves to the two spot in a clutch position and we can't get a shot, while also not even getting a catch within 2 meters of the 3 point line.

There are some good signs, but Smyth needs to be shot for that time-out mistake. This loss is totally on his head.

Here here, i totaly agree with the assesment. I couldn't believe we didnt use a time out after Kenalls 3. Smyth spent more time bitching to the refs than assesing what was going on tonight, and our rotations were horrible. I have a bad feeling we are missing the playoffs this year, i wont right them off yet, but it will be interesting to see what excuse fairytale comes up with this time for the loss.

Up by 5 and with Sydney needing to foul we would want the ball in Brett's hands and both plays we got this.

I suppose it was Phil's fault we turned the ball over twice?

The whole game Phil's coaching was crap. Ng had 11 points in 9 minutes at half time and perhaps saw 2-3 minutes play in the second half. Copeland and Nash did nothing all night but he went with them for large portions of the 4th quarter. And Cooper ditto. If it wasn't for Brett (and Willie in the 4th, although he had a crap game all around) we would not have even been close. He was lucky Brett made him look better than he deserved.

I guess it was Phil's fault that in the final 12 seconds when we were up by 2 and had possession, Brett slipped with the ball on the wet floor. The refs could have had the decency to get the floor wiped before resuming play. Instead it was an oversight on their part and then treated it as a turnover. In the final 12 seconds, we had the game won. There would have been no need for overtime.

EC,

It was a terrible spot to get the ball anyway, he was going out of bounds and we sent a bounce pass to someone running towards the ball in a narrow space. We wouldn't be having this conversation right now if Smyth called the time-out.

There is absolutely no way to defend Smyth over this. Mistakes an under 12 coach wouldn't make.

I wonder if Richard Hill would have called a time-out?

I think with the Ng situation, it was due to his lack of defense, he got killed by Rowland in his small stint in the 2nd half so we couldnt play him any more, and Sydney were the better side, we need to improve our team defense big time!!
on the positive Horvath was great, as was Maher, and if Willie can keep his 4th quater form going, we should only get betta stay positive the season is young!!

Maybe a hero to you only Yogee.

I don't know any other coach who has an uninterrupted pre-season who needs 5 to 6 weeks of loses before anyone should expect results. Or some defense or an offense creating looks for the right people in the clutch.

Smyth has survived on the brilliance of Maher the past few seasons, and if Maher can stay healthy and pull out enough close wins again the 36ers will make the first round of the play-offs. Maher will be run-down without his legs under him and we will lose in the first round to another bone headed defensive lapse like the Anthony Stewart three last year (look for the in-bounder for the 3, oldest play in the book). Smyth will say, "Well we got the best out the group, but you have to understand we can't pay as much as other clubs" we will lose out on another promising rookie who no one from the Sixers bothered to scout, or told their role in the team when pitching a contract, or given any indication of what the program can do for their game.

Meanwhile Hill will leave, Smyth will say he left for the money and if he stays on the cycle will repeat itself. We will continue to be a retirement home for players who want an easy training schedule for the end of their careers.

2003 to now has seen the same repeated failures by Smyth. Hopefully new owners put a bit of pressure on him.

I'd also like to ask why the team wasn't up and pressing in OT down by six 44 seconds to go and they allowed sydney to run nearly 20secs off the clock before giving up a cheap foul and putting them to the line for shots.

that happened in front of the coaching staff, surely someone should have been screaming to foul.

surely teams should be aware of what to do in this situation. Horvath virtually allowed his player to stand on the spot and dribble uncontested.

btw Jasmine, how in the hell would the refs know the floor was wet until Maher slipped? Maher is more than capable of asking for the floor to be wiped. Perhaps they all didn't realise it was a problem?
Besides it was a crap pass. It was a game sixers should have won they threw it away.

Yes Phil should have called a time out, BUT the inbounder (was it Farley?) should have also called a timeout when it was obvious the only inbounds pass was going to be to maher stuck in a corner (ended up slipping out of court).

Yogee, the point is that even armchair critics can see a time out is needed in that situation. Anybody agree that some blame rests on Maher for playing absolutely no defence on Kendall when he drained that 3? They just passed it to him, he waltzed up to the line and knocked it. Terrible.

I nearly cried last night, had money on Sydney being ahead at the half, and the Sixers to win it. Was paying $6.

In my opinion there is no leadership out there when Maher isn't on the court. Not once did the players huddle together to discuss the next play etc when Maher was on the bench. There was finger pointing as to who was picking up who but that was about it. Maher cant play 48 minutes every game at his age. Who is the next leader?
BTW i'm another supporter who had season tickets for the last 10 years and have given it a miss this year as i can't get excited about Copeland and Wheeler. Seeing last nights game justified that decision.

This is my recap on the game/entertainment for last night and a score out of 10:

MusicMan - Was good for his first game, just needs to have "Hit the Road Jack" ready for next time, even my mum made a comment about it not being played. 6/10

Entertainment - The Navy Seals were awesome =] jkz, I think the player intro's were ok, dancers were good for their first game, night in general seemed to be ok but should get better. 6/10

Smyth - Should have called a timeout no question. Should also have been running a Screen & Roll with Horvath and Maher, the Kings were switching everytime and Horvath was either getting looks inside and scoring or dishing or Maher had some open looks - don't understand why they didn't run it more. 2/10

Maher - Again was the General on the floor - was pointing where everyone should be on offence - looked like our guys got lost on offence sometimes. Maher worked his arse off again and he can only do so much. Finshed with 24, 6 & 11. 8/10

Farley - Can someone please check Singapore Customs? I think he left his game there! But seriously why not attack the hoop with the game on the line? The lane was open and they we were in the penalty so why not attack? Only needed one free throw to win. Needs to find his mid-range game and not continually shake and bake. Also needs to fight through screens not just bang them lazily fight through them. 4/10

Nash - Was big in the second half on the boards and finished with 10 I think. Was good defensively and was a cool head. Worked hard. 6/10

AJ - Played well, looked strong from behind the arc and wasn't scared to attack the basket. Did look a bit timid at times. Was really hustling on the boards and actually got up on Elliot so he didn't have open looks for 3. Very good pick up for the Sixers. 6/10

Horvath - Again looked dominant inside, had 15 points at the half. Then we stopped looking for him. Came away with another double double 22 & 11. Was unstoppable inside with his little hooks and was setting solid screens. Another very good pick up if we actually use him. 8/10

Cooper - Didn't look as strong today but was good to see him taking the jumper from the corner. Did well on D and was ripping down some boards, finished with 12. 5/10

Copes - Shot terribly, just wasn't his night. Made passes that put us under pressure. Night to forget. 2/10

Wheeler - Only played 12 minutes. Looked good when he was on. Don't understand why he didn't come back in when Crosswhite went down, we had a height advantage. 4/10

Ninja - Never looks of balance when he shoots, his body is but never his arms. Played well tried to attack the rim. Hit the open shot when it was there. Not sure why he saw limited minutes in the second half. 5/10

Hill - MIA - what the heck is going on there?

Sutton - DNP

Dodman - DNP

Overall Sixers should have won, passing should be top priority at training this week.

Be interesting to see if Boti castigates Smyth for the choke down the stretch as he did Goorjian in the WC's. I doubt it and at least Goorj admitted he f'd up when it happened. Instead we get the 'new team' diatribe again and then deflection to the first half! Sorry, but it don't cut it.

I listened to the stream on the computer last night - hurrah for the people responsible for that idea and implementing it - and was annoyed as anyone else about the way Sixers finished regulation.

But I find it ironically ironical that the first time Goorjian coaches against Smyth after his (ie Goorjian's) brain fade against Greece, Smyth performs an almost identical brain fade: up by 5 or 6 with less than 30 seconds to go and unable to organise his team to close it out. You couldn't script it.

I guess it's the reason basketball, and sports in general, are so alluring to follow, because unpredictable things like this happen.

It's still as crappy as hell to blow a game like that though.

Willie was frustrating, when a loose ball was there to be got he was soft. Twice he had the opportunity to seize a loose ball and twice he went in half heartedly and the king who wanted it more got it. Willie picks and chooses when he wants to play D, about one in five defenses he decides he is gonna lock down his man and he does, why doesn't he do it more often (especially when he is not influencing the game offensively)? Having said that I credit him for sticking in the game offensively when he had a shocker early on.

Mastro was very impressive, he is stronger under the boards than he looks and will be good to watch develop this year (weird shot action but it seems to work).

Horvath was great again, but unfortunately didn't get enough of the ball in the second half.

Copes needs to get the feel of the offense a bit more before he starts jacking up 3's.

Wheels will be good when fit, will contribute well when resting Horvath.

Brett was excellent again, unfortunate about those last two turnovers. I think there should be more screens set for him when handling the ball. You don't want him burning all his energy just bringing the ball up the court. Run his opponent off a mastro or nash screen while bringing the ball up.

Darren was good offensively but unfortunately is a liability defensively. He is just not strong enough to contain opposition guards. I can understand why people say he didn't get enough court time in the second half but it is all about stops. If he can't stop his man he has to sit on the pine. He is very effective in the first half geting the score rolling when the team is in a funk.

Coops works tirelessly, he is not the most gifted player on the team but hustles his arse off. Unfortunately for him when guarding a player who has some perimeter game he just gets blown by.

Nashy was very good, strong on the boards and a brick wall defensively. Lets hope next game the free throw % gets above 25%.

The coaches, could/should have called a timeout at the end of regulation. Most coaches would say they would have called a time out. What would they say in that timeout? get the ball to Brett from the inbounds. What happened from the inbounds? they got the ball to Brett. The players know what they have to do, but, the coaches should have called a timeout to reinforce it and let everyone lower their heart rate, relax, calm down and make it a good posession.

Overall it was a very disappointing result but the game did have some high points. Maher, Nash, Horvath & Mastro were very good and the team will cause alot of headaches for the opposition this year.

You are a GOOSE Yogee . He DID NOT coach well in the final minutes before OT. Clearly he should have called a timeout with the momentum on the Kings side.
I doubt there was anyone in the stadium that thought we would win that game in OT. You could hear the collective sigh when Kendall hit that 3 pointer as most us IMO knew that it was gonna swing to the Kings if OT was needed.
Smyth keeps saying we are a new team and guys are getting used to playing together - well if thats the case, why not give them some instruction and point them in the right direction, use your timeouts so everyone is on the same page and can communicate their roles.

And by the way, if we had managed to win the hero would have been Maher or Farley -not Smyth.

Smyth was out coached. A Goorj time out covers ALL bases ALL the time.

Smyth spends 30 seconds talking to his assistants then spends the last 30 seconds of his time out saying 'forget the refs'. That is U/10 stuff.

it could be a long year indeed, filled with some big blow outs if we can't hit the outside shot.

We won't have many assists this year with so many spot up shooters, can any of them put the ball on the floor and create a shot or an easy pass to score? Mastro, Copeland, Farley, Nash, Ng are all spot up shooters. They are going to have to rely on some decent picks to get open and Cooper's too thin to do that.

Why didn't Smtyh keep going inside to Horvath in the 2nd half?

Now I'm just waiting for Boti(or Yogee) to chatise Smyth for not calling a time out.

Agree, why not a time out?

An even more basic mistake(besides the fact that Coops should not have past the ball in) was that all our players were hanging around the Sydney Kings end of the court (mostly in the key)which gave Maher very little room to get free.

This is something we teach under 12's to execute - rack off and give the guard/s plenty of room, one on one to get the ball, Maher would have had no trouble getting free,but there were 5 Kings players in his way.

Amazing at this level.

Boy Wonder,

Have you ever paid for a product, not been happy with the quality and put in a customer complaint? Ever gone to a supermarket and complain there wasn't enough checkouts open when in a hurry?

Better still ever gone to get your car serviced and when you leave the garage it starts leaking oil all over the place. Would you get angry, complain and demand the problem is fixed or would you just say "well, I'm not good enough to be a mechanic, I'm here and those guys have the job so I should be happy with what they have done."

How about if a family member went to a hospital for a non-life threatening operation and came out dead? Applying your logic, you're not a doctor, so you would be an idiot to get angry over your relative's death.

Now I don't know your involvement in the game "Boy Wonder" but I have gone out and put back into the game by coaching, since 1999 in fact. I've coached everything from under 10s to under 18s and from division five up to division 1 (an undefeated division 1 team at that). I'm not a great coach by any means, but I've been around enough to know what I'm talking and have had the honor of being able to see other coaches much better than me coach, especially at my current club. I have seen the exact same situation Smyth has been in countless times and have never seen a coach who hasn't called a time-out. Never. And when these coaches call a time-out, and draw up something a safe inbounds is usually what comes up. Smyth had two opportunities, firstly after Kendall hit the three to get the ball in the front court and force Sydney to foul, and secondly after EJ scored, to get a good shot attempt off in the half-court. He failed to move on 2 occasions. The guy is lazy, and has been able to stay lazy while living off his media profile. No need to scout, no need to work on team defensive fundamentals, no need to develop players, just rock up each summer, smile at the right times while on camera, say the right things and collect a paycheck.

I'm currently coaching division 5. I scout opposition teams. I'm a volunteer. Phil gets paid big money and couldn't be stuffed going to Wayville to watch the nationals. I know this because I was there everyday.

When it comes to scouting, there is amazing amount of coaches around the traps better than Smyth. When it comes to recruiting, Smyth's track record has been a disgrace now that we don't cheat the cap. From what I hear Smyth's training are not much better than glorified scrimmages, and it is quite clear that Smyth is incapable of running a successful NBL program when he doesn't have veterans that don't need to be over-trained. Now just because I'm not capable of running an NBL program myself, yet paid $300 for season tickets, $60 for jersey etc should I shut my mouth and just watch in anger all year long?

Either the new management listens to the fans and tells Smyth he has the rest of the season to show some signs of life in his coaching, or the fans will vote with their wallets. Judging by last night's crowd, many already have.

DC - Smyth may not have been there, but from memory wasnt he in the States some of that time?? I know Breheney and KB were both at thr Nationals - wouldnt that be part of the assistant coaches jobs - to do the scouting??

I have never been a coach, and dont purport to know much about it at all, but I would have thought that maybe (from managerial training), that you send your deputies to do the initial work, and then if it requires it, you then inspect for final approval. To paraphrase into basketball, the assistants do the initial scouting with a brief on what they are looking for, and then if they identify any potential talent, the coach then comes out to see when those kids play next. Just my thoughts.

Having said that I think the 36ers missed a great oppurtunity to market themselves while they were there, however it was also in the middle of the turmoil of the sale, so who really knows????
