Suns Videos That Make Me Mad

Post by Superbone » Sat Apr 25, 2020 2:07 pm

Sorry, I just watched this and I'm not going to suffer alone. This was a surprising year and this play was probably the difference in us going to the Finals in the Nash years and against a Boston team that I think we would have beat. It may have been an over the back on Artest but Richardson should have been blocking out harder.

I still think about the play. For me, it was Gentry's screw up not having Lopez out there for the defensive possession and that exact situation.

I'm reading an Athletic article about it. These were interesting quotes:

Frye: Obviously, rest in peace, but he stepped out of bounds.

He was talking about Kobe here.

Gentry: I still pull hard for (the Suns). I like them. I like Robert (Sarver). Robert was always good to me. I know he’s had his differences with the people there and stuff like that, but Robert gave me an opportunity and put us in a position to win. So I’m not one of those people that takes shots at him. He was good to me and gave me the resources to put us in a position to almost get us to the Finals.

In reality, this to me was the BIGGEST Suns tragedy...no way the Spurs beat the Suns when KJ and Barkely were throwing down 50-60+ points again with a healthy Danny Manning...:(

Can't find a reference article, but the Michael Finley injury just prior to the playoffs cost us that year. We didn't have anybody that could guard Sean Elliott with Mike down so we lost...that was another year that we got bit in the arse...its tough being a Suns fan sometimes...:(...

But...there is no basketball player I loathe in history in any game, on any team, in any sport more...more than John 'F You' Paxson...

Yes, maybe the angriest I've ever been during a Suns playoff game.

When you're 13 and it's your team's first trip to the Finals ends, it's heartbreaking.

I think it was actually worse in 1979 - they should have beaten Seattle and won the title that year.

One of my most painful Suns memories was losing to the Cotton Fitzsimmons’ coached Kansas City Kings in the 1981 playoffs. I remember the Suns being heavy favorites.

And the Kings were pretty much without their starting guards! Phil Ford missed the entire series and Otis Birdsong played in only two of the seven games!

Reggie King played out of his mind that series, and it was the beginning of the end for Truck Robinson here.

Ungh.

I can't get a video on here, but one of my most vivid memories of the Sun's growing up was when J.R. Reid elbowed out A.C. Green's teeth.

Anyone else would have lost their shit, but good old A.C. just scooped up his toofers and walked off the court

Yeah, that moment stands out in my head too. Same with him being played for just mere seconds in a couple follow up games to keep his streak alive.

Yikes, I remember that had happened, but don’t remember seeing the video. That was very blatant

Definitely remember him picking his teeth up off the floor but didn't realize Reid elbowed him on purpose like that.

I wish I could find the video of Amare knocking out Paul Pierce's tooth in Boston but it doesn't appear to be on YouTube.
