: : : : : : : : Team plays lazy. They dont defend. Coach seems way too laid back. Burroughs usually plays hard and has discipline. Pleayers arent supposed to have prima donna attitudes. Seems like a nice guy but needs to get more from his team. Thoughts?
: : : : : : : Heard he wasn't even their 1st choice....No experience
: : : : : : Get those boys to play with some fire. Fixable. The talent is there. The discipline by the staff and players is not. Play D and hustle or sit on the bench. Period. Change the culture.
: : : : : What talent? Name one other player besides Tristen Hull?
: : :
: : : I really can't name one... I mean who scores... who hots open shots... to anyone that has ever played the game at a high level...they know that the coaches can't take shots for kids...coaches draw up plays to get players open... I see that happening herem.. I've ben to alot of games and it just seems like they need more pkayers... listen compared to what they had last year and what we have this year... to almost beat a team that beat us last year...is quite good. I mean what do you want to happen. And to questing hustle and defence... these players are hustling. There holding teams to low scores. Compared to what they average... keep basketball before you get on here just saying stuff about what you don't know please...and I havnt seen some1 name another player...
: : Thanks for the update Coach. Way to defend yourself. You coached against him at Westlake, yet you know every detail in Burbank. League is what matters and they aren't guarding anyone and kids have attitude. Haven't seen the defense you say they are playing with. Appreciate your insight though. Just my opinion. Expecting to see more.
: :It's simple They are just not as good, talented,as deep,and the pieces don't fit as well as last year. They have no point guard or a number two guy. Foster and Henderson were supposed to be the Those guys, Henderson has got exposed by not having those guys around him, foster is to up and down and turns the ball over to much. Give the Coach some time to try to bring guys in, which is not easy at a Burbank school and see what he does
Not that anyone cares too much about the pacific league but is that pacific league really strong this year? Pasadena wins it every year and was ranked top 25 by Eric Sond. but i saw Muir and they look strong because they return mostly everyone, Burroughs did good last year but has a new coach, Burbank is doing surprisingly well and returned a lot from last year under their 2nd year coach, and CV is always good with their coach because they play really hard. It looks competitive with 7-8 teams
: Pacific league is underrated because it is top heavy and the bottom half is bad, each year it will have 3-4 good team, last year 5 playoffs teams, this year every team inter league with a 500 record. Pasadena is always tough, Muir is usually a tough team, Burroughs has been very competitive the last 3 years but graduated the core group and CV is always well coached and runs theirs stuff perfect and can always shoot, Glendale and Hoover complete and every couple of years have very tough teams as well. Over the last 4 years Pasadena has won a CIF championship, CV has made the semifinals, Burroughs made the semifinals last year and Burbank return almost everyone from a quarterfinal run last year and Muir is loaded with experience JR and a tough SR in James, Glendale and Hoover are a lot better this year as well
Prediction top 2 teams interchangeable,Sleeper team to win it Burbank
1) Muir wins league with Hunter Woods or James winning a share of league MVP
2)Pasadena with Bryce Hamilton winning a share of MVP for a second straight year
3) Burbank has a bunch of 4 year varsity seniors 4) CV lack of size will hurt them, but will play hard and will be the best coached team 5) Burroughs Hull returns but not much more 6) Hoover Angel Mino can light it up, and have a 6-9 transfer 7) Glendale plays really hard and when they get hot can be a problem 8) Arcadia but the 5-8 can be interchangeable
