I might put in a young big from gm. He didn't do good when he played Harvey and Hartlands bigs. But he did alright when he played other bigs in A ball.

Ahh Breaker always good to have your perspective brought. Let's deal with the font of misinformation here.

A - I don't recall ever talking about the FUndy Junior girls. Maybe I can't find a post specifically, it may be out there. I did ask questions about rumours early in the year that tangented off in a large discussion by numerous people including myself about JV sports. To be fair I've been ranting abuot the state of JV for a while now to anyone who'll listen.

B - "A" basketball, "AA" basketball, "AAA" basketball can be as popular as they like. I'm more concerned with basketball as a whole in this province and care enough about it to see want to see it improve. I appreciate our fan base of basketball in NB and while I don't always agree with their viewpoints they can like whatever they want. I don't begrudge someone caring about what they care about.

C - For me this is a state of basketball in NB issue not a classification issue. If someone had come on and asked for a top 10 list of power forwards in AAA boys I would havev responded similarly. If you want to talk about the best players in the province, or most next level ready player, or the best shooters lets have it. Taking a small pool of athletes and subdividing them for conversations to the extreme of by school size classification and on court position seems to miss the big picture in NB which isnt' a huge picture to start from.

D - Canada Basketball, BNB, and the majority of the top coaches in this province are trying to make universally skilled basketball players not position players. Even in the case of older players where someone is saying if you want to play at the next level you'll need to be an X with this skill set, its rarely the case here now that we can say X = Post. Maybe on the girls side we get kids with big enough bodies frames or work ethic to make it as a CIS post certainly not higher then that. On the guys side we've got Nissen but my guess is that with his skill set CIS schools will make him a stretch 4 or at least use him as a perimeter mismatch for other teams 5's. We don't have post players genetically in NB. What we have is kids with different body types or skill sets then the pool of kids around them that we as coaches put in the post for competitive reasons at whatever level we coach. Zach Foster from Hartland high is a great example. With his frame and skill set he can play the high or low post in A basketball and just about any other level of basketball in High School in this province and be effective inside. For him to maximize his potential (imo) he'll need to become a 4 or maybe even a big 3 in some situations beyond high school. I guess we would call him a post player, but if starts calling himself a post player he could be in trouble. 15-16 years olds should be basketball players not positions.

Completely agree coach DJR.

I agree with coach DJR as well. I recently saw a quote from Kevin Eastman (Celtics assistant coach) that went something like..."Basketball is becoming position-less". Let's teach kids all skills so they can play on the perimeter AND near the basket.
