I dont think he's Lewisburg's "Golden Child" but he knows more about the sport than most, since he has played in the NBA! Was he a NBA All Star? No..but he played 14 seasons for different teams, and should know more about the game than most around here! There was a post here about when he played for GEHS they'd have to chain the doors shut, also they' have to put more bleachers on the stage! On top of playing WWHS, Stonewall, there was Oak Hill and Bluefield who was then AAA schools!He also had a great group of players, the Givens brothers, David Johnson, and Frank Canaday to name a few! In your words, the "Golden Child" has spent alot of years here donating his time and money to the local kids for camps, auctions, etc! That's classy! He could have went somewhere else after his career was over in the NBA, but he chose to come home and contribute to our community! I think he's been a great asset to our kids over the years and still continues to do so now! I talk to him on a daily basis at GVPT and for someone who has a personality of a rock, he sure talks back to me there and alot too I might say! I think a change needs to happen at GEHS for the boys basketball! He and Jackie Joe are great assistant coaches but, something needs to change there! Give one of them a shot at it if it ever happens! They can't turn it around in a year unless he can be like Barksdale did at WWHS and use mercenary tactics to lure kids from other areas to ours just to win a state title!

it sounds the same as when i went to school there, only the kids with good names get to play,it has been like this for many years even when my bro went to school and that was about oh 10 years ago so in conclusion east sports can kiss my ass the only thing good about that school is the band they have won so many awards but it goes unnoticed. i was in the school a few weeks ago and saw all these pics of of people who have done good in sports and did not see a single pic of the band. I think people need to get off their high horses and relize maybe sports there would be better if they would play the real talent and not the kids with good names.

Give the football team some time..the band is even down anymore, compared to when they was 150 plus! It used to take 4 buses to haul them, and they actually went to away games! We are lucky if they make to a close away game now! Sad!! The night the alumni band members played was their best performance in years!

I have attended sporting events at GEHS for about 30 years. Jerry Bradley is the worst excuse for a coach of any kind that has ever set foot on the property. The post that sited the teachers union as the problem is right. Bradley is not the only joke at East. But the teachers union keeps these inept teachers a job. In any other profession if you don't preform you are gotten rid of. I have watched Bradley coach and I'm glad I never had a kid playing while he was in charge. I watched him blow a playoff game by pulling out the players who had a lead and put in the players all the way down on the end of the bench so that they would get an equal amount of playing time. You pull these tricks in midget league and church league. People want to see their kids win once and a while in high school. Send Bradley to the coal fields where they can get rid of him the right way when he screws up. Let Bimbo have a shot he couldn't do any worse.

If a coach makes you feel lesser of yourself then you aren't mentally strong enough to play a sport.

A coach does not carry a team.

Bimbo is not a God just because he was in the NBA.

People quit the GEHS basketball team because we suck overall and the 4 hour practices aren't worth it to most people.

Aaron Baker wouldn't ever persuade a child not to play a sport. That's ridiculous.

GEHS should be a double A school.

Enough said.

the bottom line is it depends what your last name is if you play at east--when the kids would rather play rec league than at east, something is wrong--and yes they have the grades--also the board of education lied when they said there would be a ninth grade team--also there was suppose to be more than one middle school team---bottom line east sports suck

The Bradley picks favorites shit is getting old! Have any of you been to a game? Let's see, Colton glass's dad and Bradley are friends and he doesn't play that much, good lord the thomson boy is dating his daughter and he doesn't play much either! He plays almost everyone every game! And treats all of them fairly. Whyis all the responsibility for a loss put onto a coach, the boys are the ones who are playing and a coach can't control every aspect of the game. Bradley dies what he can, he's a great man and a great coach. Rec boys play rec because it's easier that is that, it's more fun cause there is no commitment! And as for thetruth there is a ninth grade team idiot, you don't even know what you're talking about

For some reason the way "rec ball" comes out of your mouth sounds like a bashing attempt. you say rec. is easier, compared to what?-4 hr practices/ parents out all hours of the night picking up kids/ no time for homework/ no time for girlfriends/ no time for chores at home. if this is the case your correct.

you say rec ball is more fun because there is no commitment. so on the other hand, do you mean east ball is not fun because of over commitment!!!! shed some light, why is it the boys on the team now are not having fun??? why does half of easts last years roster or would have made the team this year now play rec ball??? need names? i have those too!!!

dont bash a program due to anothers drama and self destruction!!!

im looking forward to your reply, have a great day

haha my name is no secret you're basically on crack! It's the msac's fault for all the late night pick ups not east's! Girlfriends? Is that what everything is about? Being a student athlete means making time for homework and studying that is based around there practices!
I've been to rec games and it's a joke they act like they are in elementary school and can't take the game seriously whatsoever.
Yeahright never said east basketball wasn't fun, that was you putting words in other peoples mouths, I've heard from many of the boys that they enjoy playing basketball at east and they enjoy coach Bradley!
As for the boys who didn't play hell I can name them too, that doesn't make you all that! Holland miller, too big a baby to take bimbos criticism , David Johnson, the sane problem! Nathan Lilly talked to coach about playing, it was not anyones fault or him feeling over worked! He just didn't want to play! You're just bitter cause your poor kid can't handle a real sport so they play rec!
