: So GBL has gone from a top So Cal team to posting on SoCal hoops for players?
Yup, GBL has hit rock bottom. Oops but wait, didn't I see every travel ball team posting on here about tryouts? Hmmm...then I guess every team is struggling to get "quality" players to fill their rosters. So everyone is trying to poach kids from each other. All GBL and the others have to do is just say the word, FREE and parents will come running dragging their kids with them, with the kid still in their old team's uniform.
That's the state of club/travel ball. You are unhappy that your kid sucks and doesn't play, let's move to a team where the coach kisses the parent's ass so they can feel better while their little Suzy still can't play basketball but at least she is on a top team to showcase to everyone that she still can't play basketball.
Every travel/club team is struggling with the lack of quality players. You look at the rosters and the coaches are dragging the bottom of the barrel trying to find kids that are any good. There are some kids you wonder how much the parents are paying to get their kids onto the top teams because some of these kids aren't very good even when they play for their high school team.
So what if GBL are looking for kids, at least they are secretive or trying to stab someone in the back like everyone else. However, it is a bit desperate to post something on here thou.
