Tom Crean is a Really Weird Dude

I don’t think there’s any debating that Tom Crean is an… interesting head basketball coach. He’s known for his quirks and unusual philosophies, so what I’m about to tell you shouldn’t be that much of a surprise.

You might have already heard something about this earlier in the season, but Crean has changed the way he assigns his players positions on the court. Normally, you see the typical “G” for guard or “F” for forward, but Crean doesn’t like all that traditional mumbo-jumbo.

No, the legend Tom Crean has reinvented what it means to play true “positionless” basketball. When I got a chance to look at the scorecard handed out before the game, it had every single Georgia player listed with a “B” next to their name. Can you guess what the “B” stands for? If you ironically guess “basketball” or “basketball player”, then you would be hilariously correct.

Take a closer look…

Yup, that’s real. I personally think Crean is a solid coach despite his shortcomings, but this is just asking to be made fun of. Add in the fact that Georgia is now 11-7 and the jokes just write themselves.

    What’s even more embarrassing is posting a story that has already been posted 2-3 times, thus proving that you do not read the stories posted on the website you write columns for.

      My thoughts exactly. There have already been multiple articles written about this & posted on KSR. Talk about beating a dead horse..

      Seriously. This has honestly been posted no less than twice, with one of the articles being posted in the last week or two. I mean, it’s not even that weird honestly. What’s the hottest term in b-ball today? It’s “positionless basketball”. Even Cal talks about it. All Crean did was take it a slight step forward and make it some sort of formal ideology. Crean is a weird dude, but he’s a good coach. What’s weirder is that this site took this totally innocuous thing with literally zero impact on the game and have tried to turn it into a big deal.

    Yeah, he’s clearly a… unique individual.

    I swear I thought it stood fo “Balletomania” for Tom’s love and enthusiasm for the ballet. Apparently, all the guys seem to like. Anthony Edwards is a 6’5″ 225 lb. freshman who loves the ballet. Nothing wrong with that.

      The only reason this story made it on here is because they don’t vet their writers. The only reason it made it on here again is because they don’t have an editor.

    It’s a real B when a short B is stuck guarding a large B in the paint.
