What do they mean complex circumstances?

It's most likely going to be

A. The lolis want some romance from the main (Slam Dunk + Kodomo no Jikan)

B. Superhuman athletes

C. Both of these


I was thinking more along the lines of some manner of trauma or abuse, which would also being back memories of Kodomo.

I would point out that if they're superhuman athletes already they might not be so desperate for a coach they're asking suspected pedophiles... I'm thinking this is way into the small time nobodies. The club can only afford a ball because one of the members had one in the basement kind of thing.

the images sure are misleading. Doesn't look like it has anything to do with basketball.
