: : Listen and learn so this kid does not end up burned.
: Did anyone watch the highlight video on Bleacher Report? He rarely gets back on defense. Los Osos scores, the closest Chino Hills player takes it out of the net and chucks it down to Melo on the other side. Cherry Picking at its finest.
As much as I'm a old school basketball guy, you have to give it Chino Hills for finding a way to beat teams. Yes, its unconventional, but it works. But everyone is crying that they didn't play by the typical rules ... Wahhhhh!:( Get over your inability to beat them. If you don't like LaMelo cherry picking ... then play some effin' defense of your own and stop complaining. The Los Osos Coach was complaining ... then put a man on LaMelo and never leave him alone ... its not like you didn't know Chino Hills game plan a long time ago. Yes, Chino Hills doesn't often play defense, other than Eli and Big O.
It's kinda like telling a quarterback on a football team that he can only throw 10 yards passes, even if he has a player open all the way down the field ...oh, no,no,no, you have to wait for the defender to get up so that he has a shot to stop them! What? if you don't like their run and gun style of play, then stop them. If you don't like them cherry picking, then take that option away and get back on defense yourself. The way I see it, you are pointing the finger at them, when you should be looking in the mirror.
If you let a team, not to mention one kid, score 92 on you ... that is YOUR fault and not his.
He Coach ... go back to teaching Math or maybe Coach NJB might be more your speed.
