Shannon Brown sees role reduced, days appear to be numbered in Phoenix

May 15th, 2013 · 14 Comments

PHOENIX — To call Shannon Brown’s seven-year NBA career a journey would be an understatement. The former Michigan State product has gone from first-round draft pick to D-Leaguer to two-time champion to super sub to late-season starter. And that was all before the 2012-13 season even began. Heading into last summer, Brown made it known […]

Lindsey Hunter’s status: The case for a coaching change

April 19th, 2013 · 23 Comments

This is not a piece meant to admonish Lindsey Hunter in any way. Hunter went 12-29 as head coach of a Phoenix Suns team which was seriously lacking in talent, chemistry, and motivation. Coming in as the head coach midseason was the equivalent of taking over as pilot of a plane with dead engines. There […]
