Right now I'm at my Sunday morning old man basketball full court games. You're wondering what type of game that I have at my age? I'm Supersonics' Detlef Schrempf. Not only because of race but because of my silky smooth mid range, threat from three, yet scrappy foreign lowpost game. After hitting the game winner I yelled that Jack Pollon needs to cover our sweaty old man games. Then a guy said that Jack put out a tweet saying that Valley Christian in Cerritos should be in the open division because they beat Heritage Christian and Village Christian. I thought that it was one of his unfunny jokes so I ignored it. At least he wasn't trying to sell us on the nepotistic Oak Park basketball scene again. But it opened up a GREAT discussion. A dad/coach/victim-of-my-high-knee-fadeaway gave a passionate debate about private vs public schools, why parents chase the lies of private schools rather than save money with public and that private school coaches are typically more crooked than public etc.
We, the larger SoCal hoops community, should take credit for Chaminade not playing daddy ball this year. We put eyes on a developing problem. They had to let Palarz coach players based on what they can do and not who their dad is. We, got on Winward a little late but they now have to recognize that changing a coach every 6 months isn't good, not fair to the kids, and parents shouldn't be able to commandeer a school team. By the way. Most of the private schools don't offer better academics than most public schools.
What I'm getting at is, why go private? Why deal with all of the fakery and nonsense of a private school? I understand wanting the Harvard Westlake's, Rebibo is a great coach with great hair. Anyone else feel like there's a group chat of moms calling themselves "Dave's Damsels"? Daniel Boatwright just left Village Christian. Wasn't Canoga better? The academics is better and he spent a whole year at Canoga and only a few months at Village.
Is the jig up for schools like Winward, that change coaches to appease Dustin's mom or Village Christian who has, possibly the worst coaching that I've ever seen, on a 10 year contract? When the sport is less or equal to public, why go private? Pasadena is way better than Marthana.
