Thanks for the threads, Shel. That JaVale McGee family LotR costume is pretty great. And LOL @ the Pink Sweater Kuzma pic.

If you want to feel even worse about what could have been in Phoenix...

This team is set for 10 years if they had just drafted Haliburton.. what a massive whiff.

And with a starting 5 all consisting of Suns-drafted players. What an accomplishment that would have been.

Do we have to harp on it in every thread tho? It's not about sunshine pumpers...we know we missed out on Hali, Bane, Stewart and others and mismanaged the Stix situation. It just gets annoying reading about it everyday.

Yeah, I want to talk about that Dennis Johnson for Rick Robey trade a little more because I'm sure there's still a lesson to be learned.

Wowza. It was only a matter of time I guess. I don't know who can coach that team at this point.

I bet they did it now to see if they can salvage KD still. Strange to do it after a win, though. :?

There is no way KD is cool enough with Kyrie being a super buffoon to stick that out right? Especially when Kyrie is likely gone after the season.

Nash was another case of hiring a coach because you fell in love with the idea of a big name coaching your team.

There are countless lifetime assistant coaches who should take these kinds of hirings as an insult.

Great player, fan favorite, unqualified coach.

Maybe he was unqualified. Maybe years of playing PG at an elite level more than qualified him. Maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle. Whatever it is I don't blame Nash for the Nets issues one bit.
Go Suns!
