Mike D'Antoni will be an assistant coach with the Brooklyn Nets, reuniting him with his former MVP point guard, Nets coach Steve Nash, the team announced Friday. The Nets announced the hires of D'Antoni, Amar'e Stoudemire and well-regarded assistant Ime Udoka, who spent seven of the past eight seasons on Gregg Popovich's staff with the San Antonio Spurs.
This looks like a great decision by Nash and the Nets.
Thing is NZ have always played a counter attacking style of game, and as the game evolves things are improved, and since professionalism AB coaches have not been afraid to look at other sports for an edge or way to innovate and stay ahead of the chasing pack.
While trying to give credit to Mitchell for reinventing our attacking game, we must remember he also gave us un-contested lineouts and less rucking.
Aaaannd thought Ben Blair was a better fullback than Christian Cullen...
@canefan yeah i heard on jalen and jacoby. Jalen was suggesting bron hits up the front office for him to get signed. I reckon bad idea. But any other team outside of the contenders couldn't do worse. What do you think about pelicans 6th man?
I don't think he can keep up! He is a defensive liability, so a team like LA at least half makes sense. Their bigs might be able to bail him out. But if LBJ wanted Melo he could have had him already
Tony Mitchell had some discipline issues. But jesus the Wildcats get away with a lot of shit other teams get called for in the same game. Fucking Martyn can run the length of the court leaning on a player, but mysteriously never give away a foul. Matty Knights just pushes people and the other player gets called.
Fuck Perth. Go the Hawks.
Oh, and the suspension is meaningless because Tony won't be back in the NBL.

<p>With the final demise of the Townsville Crocs, the Taipans are firming as wooden spoon favourites. </p>
<p>Our best player of last year, Tory Craig, is gone. Markel Starks wasn't re-signed (just as he started coming good). Shaun Bruce is gone (no great loss, but he wasn't the worst backup guard, he just got too much game time because Aaron Fearne loves a trier). The two biggest busts of last year in Loughton and Tragarth are still here thanks to multi-year deals. We have a couple of other important players off-contract and no guarantee to stay. </p>
<p>We've signed the Hawks' back up backup PG. And no one else. Every fucking year we leave the signings to the very end, and they don't have time to settle into Fearne's rigid don't-you-dare-deviate-from-the-plan style, and we suck for half the season (or all the season, depending on the year).</p>
<p><strong>Where is that thread about the deadshit sports team i support?</strong></p>
<p>There's a whole sub-forum for one of them.....</p>
<p>Weeks is a good pick up for the Taipans. He'll bring a bit of energy off the bench.</p>
<p>Biggest move in the offseason so far has been Lisch joining Andrew Gaze at the Kings.</p>
