re: Official Alabama Basketball Season Thread (End of the Avery Era)
Can we pull a Shula with Avery and demand he clean house including ponytail or GTFO?

It’s really just been Herro and them capitalizing off our mistakes. They aren’t playing well at all (offensively)

Chance to cut it to 5

Dazon clanks the front end
Slap on a drive by Washington
Miss a 3
Terrible possession bad 3
Awful foul


I mean it's just the most frustrating type of team in sports

Eventually we’ve gotta stop making excuses for Kira. Idgaf that he’s 17. He’s playing stupid AF at times just throwing the ball away. He’s been doing this for like the last 10 games

Yea, I mean they aren't excuses. He's been bad for the last month. Really bad, honestly. He's not finishing like he was earlier, his turnover rate has skyrocketed and he's clearly outthinking himself.

But he's 17 and playing with idiots. I give him a bit of a pass.

Yeah I give him more of a pass than the others. It’s just frustrating seeing him get worse. But I guess when everyone else on the team plays like that, then eventually you will

Honestly I think we’d have a better chance by just jacking up a 3 ten seconds into every possession.

Better than turning it over constantly

Our starters combined for 9 total points that half. Mack, Kira, and Hall all had 0

Yea, the problem is attacking the rim was a good strategy. We have to do that to open things up. We aren't running the slow arse high ball screen stuff, which is a good thing. Problem is our guys just can't finish against their bigs. Like they have no shot.

Not sure what to do in the 2nd half honestly. Avery's game plan today was fine, it's just the more ingrained fundamental skill sets and discipline of our players aren't good enough.

Avery's future...

I am hopeful Byrne looks at coaching ability, not if we make the tourney or not, when deciding Avery's future.

I, like most of you, can not really point to any player or even fundamental basketball skill that has improved with the team this year, any year, or over the course of 4 years.

A great coach can have a losing record and a bad coach can win alot of games. The key in judging coaching ability is to watch how a team improves from game 1 to the last game.

That is different than being able to recruit great players and win with talent. Bama is not going to be that program any time soon. If we start pulling in that type of talent, Kentucky and Duke talent, we all know what the end result will be...the NCAA in town.

We have to have a coach...someone who develops players and teams. Even if we make the tourney and win 2 games...nothing, absolutely noting changes in my opinion of Avery...he is not a coach that develops players or improves the team.

I like the guy...but he needs to be gone and soon.

Agree. Gene said it well in a Rant thread. Hr recruits well, but not well enough to basically be able to roll the balls out. And he'll never recruit well enough to do that (and we shouldn't expect anyone at Alabama too).

The resume is pretty clear at this point. We have enough data.
